If you're tired of swiping right and ending up with another creep, Tinder isn't the only dating app out there, there's a huge variety of apps to choose from.Dating may be tricky but most mobile apps operate the same way.
Whereas the men of all age groups consistently rated 20-year-old women the most attractive (which produced a very lopsided chart), their ratings of all women in general produced a very symmetrical chart.
In Rudder's book he even describes it as "close to what's called a symmetric beta distribution - a curve often deployed to model basic unbiased decisions." Therefore it appears that men are very unbiased/honest in the way they rate women. Rudder mentions that women only rate one guy in six as "above average." What causes this huge difference in how men and women rate each other? Are they rating based on different criteria (perhaps men are rating based on looks, and women are rating based on whether or not they think the men would make a good mate)?
and the people who run the website have access to all this data!
Christian Rudder was one of the founders of okcupid, and was in charge of their analytics team.
This small change helped make the graph's layout more familiar to me, and more logical.
