A dating site for attractive people onlyPage 3 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Well I am not going to scream at you but I sure would like to know who is going to judge this beauty contest. Without personality, it is hard to imagine some people who are more attractive than their skin configuration suggest, would get in. This would be a shame.

I know of many men whose pictures alone would not entice me but their personalities did...as well as those who pictures alone lured me into the dark alley only to discover I was with a creep.

Women don't care about looks, they care about height, and income bracket.

I thought POF was only for attractive people.

I'd love to slap the crap out of the women that have men thinking this way!!
Most of us "real" women may not be "10's".....but we sure do appreciate a real guy for "who"he is and not "what" he has.



Actually....we are the real 10. This is the mentality that needs to be more prevalent.
Sites like beautiful.com are what separate the fakes from real people.

Again this is entirely fictional/hypothetical so don't start screaming just yet. But I am curious.. how successfull do you think this would be?

Like all business ideas it depends as much if not more on the go to market plan as the idea its self.

Though considering you are target marketing a small pool of people you are limiting your earning potential.




On the upside, if you got into the site, then yeah you would have a huge dating pool of only attractive people...

While the dating pool may only be attractive people, I doubt it would be huge.

Also, all the same issues that happen here would also happen there, as you will get guys complaining they do not get any replies and girls wondering why guys only want sex.




...But then what if you think you are attractive, but you don't get admitted?

You should stop listing to your mom.




Would this kind of discrimination based on appearance be legal?

Yes.

There was a guy on Anderson Cooper talking about his dating site,men BID to be able to take the women to dinner.They actually paid cash to the date to be able to get a chance to wine and dine her.Now,it does weed out the guys that aren't serious....obviously some pros were hiding in the weeds....

what about the judges themeselves? They better be known for their "hotness" in order to judge.

there is one of these sites in canada that I watched a report on, the members vote how attractive you are and if you are beautiful/handsome enough to be allowed access to the site, sounds ridiculous to me. The report followed a couple of people going thru the process, I felt really bad for the guy who got rejected, you could tell it really hurt him. The problem with this type of site is that it gives the false impression that just because you are attractive you will have better quality dates, being pretty or handsome doesn't make you a good person or great relationship material, crap with a pretty bow on it is still crap.

I was just thinking... What if somebody made a dating site that only admitted "attractive" people?



Isn't that basically any dating site? Maybe the sites don't enforce it, but the members sure do.

The amount of duckfaces and oiled sixpacks would make me want to gauge my eyes out.

There is a site called beautiful people. You have to be voted on by current members. It is people all over the world who vote for you, the opposite sex. I have never seen anyone over 50 on it. Appears men from aisa liked my look. They give you a break down of the voting if you get on. I have never met anyone off the site but younger men arent my idea of fun. Neither are pretty boy band type.
I was sent an invite and decided to see if i could get on. I was shocked when they said i made it i dont go on it often. I do go on about once every 6 months and vote.

I think it would be a wonderful idea...............and if people are rejected; it may be just what they need as they must be living in a fool's paradise, so c'mon please do one.....

Many thanks

I remember a site called "Hot or Not" I put a picture on there for awhile. (not like the ones I use on here) It felt creepy even when I was getting hot votes. My rating went from a 9 to a 2 over a six week period and finally averaged at 4.9 I think. (twinge)

Am waiting to see if one especially for STI infected pops up. """"""""""""""""

You mean, STD.

There used to be a "herpes only" site. I think they got like two members in total. The other guy was a heterosexual male, too.

Tons of "IAIDS" and "Hep B" sites, mostly gay.

"Friends of Schizophrenics" sites, "ASL", and "Down's syndrome" galore. They are not dating sites.

Would say if a person values looks then intelligence isn't valued. Or is valued less. Whereas those who value intelligence more will know that looks are transitory at best and nothing to hang their hat on."""""""""""""

I don't know where you are coming from. You prefer ugly people because beauty is passing? So does IQ. The time a person gets ugly with age is the time he or she loses the agility of his or her mental prowess. My brother is 68 and he is still sporty and very good looking, coz his wife is stricting him. But he lost at least 10 points off of his IQ about ten years ago, and another ten points in the last five years. My ex girlfriend is 83, and she looks dynamite and cute as a button -- tall, slender, well figured, firm toned body, pert tiitts, perfect face -- and she had a stroke fifteen years ago and she has been a semi-zombie ever since.

Also... sure, you can get turned off by someone ugly... but if you marry her beautiful, and she only turns ugly in twenty-thirty years, then you have twenty-thirty years of good clean fun. If you marry an ugly bat off the bat, then there is zero amount of male pride going down the tube. Or up the tube.

I mean, I see your logic, and it makes sense, but I am a chip off of a different block.

Incidentally, since my brother lost his upper points of the bigger size off of his IQ, he gets published in mainline media more and more often. I am an effing genius, and I can't get one single solitary paper published even if I kill himself and then threaten the editor. Yeah, and after I threaten them, they cut off all lines of communications with me, too, the babstards.

In grade 10 I was named in the yearbook "most likely to sit on a couch, eat cheesies, and watch dirty movies, beyond age 32."

That hurt. Especially that my sweetheart was named "Most likely to nag her husband (all seven of them) into suicide, and be employed by the military as a weapon of mass destruction for her "Cheesy bits" recipe."

I escaped certain death only by a narrow margin.
