Internet dating for ugly people tips dating libra man
Here’s the graph for female senders, plotted in evenly-spaced “attractiveness groups.”One interesting thing seems to be going on here: when the best-looking men write the worst-looking women, their message success rate takes a big hit.
The knee-jerk response would be to somehow chalk it up to hunky spammers, but we very carefully control for that in these articles, and in any event why would better-looking girls be drastically more susceptible to it? As we did before, I’m going to consolidate the line charts to show just how your attractiveness changes how often your messages get responses.
Our chart shows how men have rated women, on a scale from 0 to 5.
The curve is symmetric and surprisingly charitable: a woman is as likely to be considered extremely ugly as extremely beautiful, and the majority of women have been rated about “medium.” The chart normalized, even though it’s just the unfiltered opinions of our male users.
For instance, the most attractive guys get 11× the messages the lowest-rated do.
The medium-rated get about 4×., not just the number of messages sent.
And since they themselves get so many more messages than everyone else, they write back much less frequently.
Finally, I just want to combine the two charts to emphasize how much fuller the inboxes of good-looking people get.
I have scaled this graph to show multiples of messages sent to the lowest-rated people.
Given the popular wisdom that Hollywood, the Internet, and Photoshop have created unrealistic expectations of how a woman should look, I found the fairness and, well, realism, of this gray arc kind of heartening.
Now let’s superimpose the distribution of actual messages guys have sent: When it comes down to actually choosing targets, men choose the modelesque.
