Dating sites attractiveness rating
A friend forwarded me an article about looks on the dating site Ok Okay, maybe it didn’t blow my mind, but it did validate everything that I’ve ever said about online dating.I’m going to do my best to summarize– and explain what you can learn from it. 1) Men have a very fair assessment of women’s overall attractiveness.After coaching women for many years, I already suspected this, but this was a stark realization when you see just how few men you even find to be average looking. Ok Cupid reports that the most attractive women still receive 5X more email than average women and 28X more email than unattractive women.Literally 2/3 of male messages go to the best looking 1/3 of women.As Ok Cupid observed, the medical term for this is “male pattern madness”.4) Women engage in similar behavioral patterns, just not as extreme.
The Consumerist reproduced the email OKCupid sent to its better-looking members: We are very pleased to report that you are in the top half of Ok Cupid's most attractive users.Since Ok Cupid published their data in support of not smiling in pics, the tip has been quoted as gospel truth on dating advice blogs, PUA podcasts, dozens of dating subreddits, forums, everywhere.But, at the same time, widespread skepticism rose too.Then she drops her eyelids, tilts her head down and to the side, and looks away.Frequently she also covers her face with her hands, giggling nervously as she retreats behind her palms.
