Social Justice Warrior Whines About Tinder being "Looksist"
The writer of this article created a new buzzword "lookisist" because women don't find him attractive on Tinder. Sounds like a Lena Dunham type feminist whining that hot men don't find someone like her attractive. I found the article interesting because it shows data on women's hypergamy on Tinder.

Here's what he wrote

Quote:You know how I know I’m old? I’ve never actually used the internet to get laid really. The last time I was single was 12 years ago and back then internet dating was still sort of fringey. I tried it for a month at one point, went on a few awkward dates and that was it. But even though I have zero experience with this stuff, these results don’t surprise me even slightly (even though this is by no means enough data to be considered fact). People are looksist as shit, that science has been around forever. It’s obviously going to be increasingly exaggerated on a hook up site, but still. (from Worst Online Dater):

Abstract (TL;DR)
This study was conducted to quantify the Tinder socio-economic prospects for males based on the percentage of females that will “like” them. Female Tinder usage data was collected and statistically analyzed to determine the inequality in the Tinder economy. It was determined that the bottom 80% of men (in terms of attractiveness) are competing for the bottom 22% of women and the top 78% of women are competing for the top 20% of men. The Gini coefficient for the Tinder economy based on “like” percentages was calculated to be 0.58. This means that the Tinder economy has more inequality than 95.1% of all the world’s national economies. In addition, it was determined that a man of average attractiveness would be “liked” by approximately 0.87% (1 in 115) of women on Tinder. Also, a formula was derived to estimate a man’s attractiveness level based on the percentage of “likes” he receives on Tinder:

attractiveness%=16.8*ln(like%)+52.3

Introduction
In my previous post we learned that in Tinder there is a big difference in the number of “likes” an attractive guy receives versus an unattractive guy (duh). I wanted to understand this trend in more quantitative terms (also, I like pretty graphs). To do this, I decided to treat Tinder as an economy and study it as an economist (socio-economist) would. Since I wasn’t getting any hot Tinder dates I had plenty of time to do the math (so you don’t have to).

The Tinder Economy
First, let’s define the Tinder economy. The wealth of an economy is quantified in terms its currency. In most of the world the currency is money (or goats). In Tinder the currency is “likes”. The more “likes” you get the more wealth you have in the Tinder ecosystem.

Wealth in Tinder is not distributed equally. Attractive guys have more wealth in the Tinder economy (get more “likes”) than unattractive guys do. This isn’t surprising since a large portion of the ecosystem is based on physical appearance. An unequal wealth distribution is to be expected, but there is a more interesting question: What is the degree of this unequal wealth distribution and how does this inequality compare to other economies? To answer that question we are first going to need some data (and a nerd to analyze it).

Tinder doesn’t supply any statistics or analytics about member usage so I had to collect this data myself. The most important data I needed was the percent of men that these females tended to “like”. I collected this data by interviewing females who had “liked” a fake Tinder profile I set up. I asked them each several questions about their Tinder usage while they thought they were talking to an attractive male who was interested in them. Lying in this way is ethically questionable at best (and highly entertaining), but, unfortunately I had no other way to get the required data.

Caveats (skip this section if you just want to see the results)
At this point I would be remiss to not mention a few caveats about these data. First, the sample size is small (only 27 females were interviewed). Second, all data is self reported. The females who responded to my questions could have lied about the percentage of guys they “like” in order to impress me (fake super hot Tinder me) or make themselves seem more selective. This self reporting bias will definitely introduce error into the analysis, but there is evidence to suggest the data I collected have some validity. For instance, a recent New York Times article stated that in an experiment females on average swiped a 14% “like” rate. This compares vary favorably with the data I collected that shows a 12% average “like” rate.

The writer looks just as you expect.

If he lifted, and had more of a Chad facial expression, he'd do just fine. Unfortunately, he seems to have chosen Ed Grimley as his role model.

Dude looks like he works at Hot Topic trying to sell black bracelets with the spikes on them and "Oh My Goth" T-shirts while listening to Hawthorne Heights.

The only thing that would be missing is a dick in his mouth.

RE: Social Justice Warrior Whines About Tinder being "Looksist"
OP, I feel very confused about what you're trying to prove by making this topic. Did you make just to point out some dumb made-up word someone made in an offhand article? Are you making a statement saying that there are SJW men who complain about the same things women do on tinder for lacking attractive qualities? It's not clear to me what you're trying to accomplish.

I also found the original article, and most of what he says makes complete sense. He's using data from Tinder to not only quantify but prove that generally the top 80% of women go for the top 20% of guys. And since Tinder has more of an emphasis on looks, it makes sense that this becomes women going after the top 20% of the best looking guys on tinder and it's harder to leverage personality into your game.

Also this tidbit:

Quote:Unfortunately, this percentage decreases rapidly as you go down the attractiveness scale. According to this analysis a man of average attractiveness can only expect to be liked by slightly less than 1% of females (0.87%). This equates to 1 “like” for every 115 females. The good news is that if you are only getting liked by a few girls on Tinder you shouldn’t take it personally. You aren’t necessarily unattractive. You can be of above average attractiveness and still only get liked by a few percent of women on Tinder. The bad news is that if you aren’t in the very upper echelons of Tinder wealth (i.e. attractiveness) you aren’t likely to have much success using Tinder. You would probably be better off just going to a bar or joining some coed recreational sports team.

On the other hand, it doesn’t take much effort to swipe right… (So you are saying I have a 1 in 115 chance?)

reminds me of advice given on here for people who don't like Tinder or don't do that well on it. Most fat/ugly chicks would hamster up and over-rationalize their failure on Tinder and blame someone else for it. This guy offers solutions instead of purely bitter complaints.


Don't get me wrong, he looks like a soft faggot, but I don't see anything wrong with the article itself. It's mostly data analysis.

I agree, I haven't read the full article but those statistics in the abstract look interesting.

"It was determined that the bottom 80% of men (in terms of attractiveness) are competing for the bottom 22% of women and the top 78% of women are competing for the top 20% of men"

A man with 8/10 looks only matches with 4's in western countries. Male 9's match with everyone. I thought everyone knew this. It's the sexual market place today. A 'heart throb' like Ryan Gosling would be strugglimg to pull a 4 on Tinder without fame.

wtf, if he'd take the stupid shit out of his ear, get contact lenses, and spend like TWO MONTHS (three times a week) lifting, wear some better clothes and get a professional photographer, he'd get laid left right and center!

Hell, if he just went to SEA for a week, he'd get laid like that without having to change his looks. . .

Some people man. . .I guess since we don't really have wars to weed out the week genes, nature has figured out a way to weed out weakness without war.

Stupidity.

I guess that's less costly and more efficient than war.
