“Online dating is just awkward,” my cute co-worker scrunches her nose. “Classically attractive” women have more difficulty online dating.
Hodge is a former nightclub owner from London who is now managing director for Beautiful People.com, a website he took global five years ago.
After all, I’ve been known to have a taste for the eclectic.
Society tells them they’re beautiful and they’re mad at Tinder and Ok Cupid for not providing better prospects. I’m the average-looking sidekick, “the one who online dates,” and it’s my fault they aren’t having a better time.
That’s not the disgusting part.) I’m not a big dating site fan, but a friend said it was fun, so I figured I’d give it a try. On Sunday, this message appeared in my Inbox signed by “Ok Cupid! The subject line read, “We have data on your attractiveness”.
Anyway, Ok Cupid allows users to rate profiles they see on a five-star scale.
But to openly have this sort of structured vanity as part of your programming model? Then one friend said, not a little wistfully, that he’s on Ok Cupid but he hasn’t received that message. Segregating the “ugly” people from the “most attractive” ones? This made me want to hurl my i Phone across the room.
To assume that physical beauty is the only measure worth sorting by? When I received this message, I happened to be out to dinner with friends. A good friend of mine quit the minute he got this message last year. So much hotter than all those other hideous people.
