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.Men admitted to lying about height, weight and physique in their top five lies -- behind jobs and ahead of money -- and women lied about weight, age, physique, and height, with money rounding out the top five. Most of these are lies their dates can spot in the first few seconds of seeing them.In fact, a third of those surveyed said they falsified their information so much that it prevented them from getting a second date.
Funnily enough, I had to write about a dozen beautiful female users before anyone would even get back to me. Anyhow, I know attractiveness is far from a universal concept, but maybe keep these folks in mind as we go through the data.
We’re going to look at how your photos affect both the messages you get and how successful your own outgoing messages are.
We all know that beautiful people are more successful daters, but let’s quantify by exactly how much.
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.
Someone like roomtodance above gets nearly 5 times as many messages as a typical woman and 28 times as many messages as a woman at the low end of our curve.
