Online dating is for ugly people
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.
Literally 2/3 of male messages go to the best looking 1/3 of women.The fact of the matter is that women receive far too much “unwanted” attention.While it does require less effort for women to get responses from the opposite sex, they’re not really in the best position, as they have to dig through a lot of junk before they find any substance.Headlines are just as important as the content in your message.Ok Cupid found that when some men think a woman is ugly, other men are more likely to message them.
Interestingly, more than 15% of adults say that they have used either mobile dating apps or an online dating site at least once in the past.
