And here are two sets rated in the middle. 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. Our chart shows how men have rated women, on a scale from 0 to 5.
The curve is symmetric and surprisingly charitable: 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. When it comes down to actually choosing targets, men choose the modelesque. 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.
Site-wide, two-thirds of male messages go to the best-looking third of women. So basically, guys are fighting each other 2-for-1 for the absolute best-rated females, while plenty of potentially charming, even cute, girls go unwritten. The medical term for this is male pattern madness. The female equivalent of the above chart shows a different bias: Females of OkCupid, we site founders say to you: Finally, I just want to combine the two charts to emphasize how much fuller the inboxes of good-looking people get.
Did you meet your partner on a dating website?
I have scaled this graph to show multiples of messages sent to the lowest-rated people. And since they themselves get so many more messages than everyone else, they write back much less frequently. 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? It seems to be some kind of self-confidence thing. Women are more shallow than males are. Like you need an article from a dating site to tell you that. Males will put their dick into anything that it will allow them too, another newsflash!

Your Looks and Your Inbox (dating sites)
So a TL;DR for this would be: Guys are generally pretty reasonable on judging people's looks, but always shoot out of their league. Did I get that right? It was probably pulled because someone got "offended" at the notion that looks matter. Originally Posted by potis.
