If you read a little bit, you will find that mating in most developed countries is "affine". Couples generally have the same ethnic, socio-economic, cultural, religious....etc. background. Of course, there are exceptions.

Nope, I made her laugh.


(yes, I know you were just trying to be rude)

For the record: I don't have an overly high opinion of myself, I have a serious debilitating injury (2 actually) wherein my body will only degrade over the years. I'm going to have fun and make money while I can.

In Romance, Looks Matters Most to the Beautiful

Quote:
A new study supports the idea that super models flock together while individuals lacking the perfect face and body also stick together.

"Beautiful people marry beautiful people and less beautiful people marry less beautiful people," said Dan Ariely, a professor of behavioral economics at MIT's Program in Media Arts and Sciences and Sloan School of Management.
Intelligent people with intelligent, dumb with dumb. But hey, what does that matter when we have assho...cough...opinions.

Default Are couples matched based on looks/looks or looks/money?

No, no they're not... bloody hell man.

Do couples pair off based on equal levels of physical attractiveness for both parties (good looking women with good looking men, average-looking women with average looking men, etc)?

Or do couples pair off based on the woman's physical attractiveness and the man's financial status (good looking women with rich men, average-looking women with men of average finances, etc.)?
Maybe you need to stop seeing the world is such black and white hues. You have these bizarrely fixed ideas about how things should be, like somehow you can find a formula for a relationship. There are a myriad of options for couples pairing up that have nothing to do with looks or money.

Again there is this desperation in your posts. I think this may be one of the key factors that are putting women off. That smell of neediness is very unattractive to most women.

Exactly. +10 There are millions of beautiful women who marry butt-ugly men who were not wealthy. I personally know two such cases. There are also handsome men who choose to marry unattractive women who ring their chimes in other ways. Attraction is all over the map and as always, personality/sense of humor/intelligence is never mentioned in these "polls."

Just getting of the house and living life would show most people this very clearly.

Traditionally, it is women's looks vs man's wealth.
