I always thought that the "Golden Ratio" in the American dating scene was "Debt-to-Income" ratio!!

Way to go science.

What would Thomas Dolby say?

I don't really think she looks like Christie Brinkley, but she is exceptionally beautiful.

Symmetrical features are a universal standard of beauty

That doesn't mean people only find those with symmetrical features attractive, but most cultures can agree symmetry is good.

It also doesn't mean that you'll appeal to everyone, you just aren't going to be agreeably ugly.

I don't think shania twain is beautiful but apparently she fits the golden ratio. She's not ugly to me, just blah

Doesn't have much to do with the Golden Ratio, though....

Well, it depends on which portion of the anatomy you're applying the golden ratio to.

The hell is the matter with you people? If you put as much time into improving your personalities, skills, and attributes as you do trying to decode some magical formula that explains away why you can't get a date, you'd probably do a lot better.

Is it just me or do women (at least on city-data) have absolutely no sense of humor?

God's sake chicks stop taking it sooooo seriously. Everyone knows that when it really matters personality and character is more important than some ratio. Don't be dumb enough to think guys don't know that. And, this is the fashion and beauty forum, where people are going to be talking about things like this, so if you don't like such "shallow talk" bugger off to some forum that would be more to your tastes (like modern feminist or summik), jeeze louise
