The numbers are the person's attractiveness on a scale of 1 to 10. The red arrows point from the guy to who he's attracted to; the blue arrows point from the girl to who she's attracted to. Would you say this is fairly accurate? A good social experiment would be to host a party and invite 10 single men and 10 single women, attractiveness uniformly distributed across each gender, and see what happens.

I think you have too much time on your hands coupled with a big chip on your shoulder.

So then what about studies like this which finds the opposite: WFU | News — Rating attractiveness: study finds consensus among men, not women

Quote:
Men agree a lot more about who they find attractive and unattractive than women agree about who they find attractive and unattractive,” says Wood, assistant professor of psychology. “This study shows we can quantify the extent to which men agree about which women are attractive and vice versa.”
More than 4,000 participants in the study rated photographs of men and women (ages 18-25) for attractiveness on a 10-point scale ranging from “not at all” to “very.”
I'd post the actual study, but it isn't available open access.

Interesting that the attractive women in your chart are tall and thin, but the attractive men are very short.

I think the main thing to understand is that when women say 'attractive', we are not talking about looks or money. As felltiebelle's study suggests, we are talking about compatibility.

To make your chart accurate, draw 1-2 arrows from each woman, each one leading to a random man. Women are attracted to few men, and you cannot predict which ones.

But IRL it isnt so simple. there are variables to include.
Such as:
1. Is one of the guys a PUA ?
2. Is one of the guy(s) a beta ?
3. How many alphas in the group ?
4. How many of the guys are actually aliens living among us doing social experiments on US ?
5. What if one of the women was born a man ?
6. What if one of the group does OLD ?
7. What if one of the guys owns a cat ? (outta there!)
8. What if one of the woman has 20 cats?
9. What if the most attractive woman is the least successful?
10. What if the most attractive guy is the least successful ?
11. What if the most attractive woman also had the most amount of partners sexually, including various members in that exact group of guys?



eye eye eye. No wonder I'm confused.

Looks like a murder investigation scene from Dexter.

Ten single men and ten single women...what race are they? I assume you mean they would be straight. And you'd have to vary "attractiveness" which makes little sense because it is so subjective and not very scientific. Except the whole "symmetry" thing, I guess.

Oh whatever. I don't want to try to answer this seriously.

I am glad we have CodeViolationMcEnroe to guide us through relationship troubles and to tell us that NO ONE EVER is attracted to a woman who's less than a 7 or a man less than a 10.

Excuse me, I will go hit on Chris Hemsworth now.
