Dating service for attractive people only
Managing Director of Beautiful People Greg Hodge states that people were tired of using mainstream online dating sites when looking for an attractive partner, since they allow anyone to join and have mediocre or non-existent filters for finding attractive people.Hodge acknowledges that attraction is a strong criterion when romantically approaching prospective mates, and attempts to transfer this aspect of dating onto the website.Greg Hodge said: "Beautiful is based on a fundamental principle of human nature, that being we all romantically want to be with someone we find attractive, it's Darwinism, it's millions of years of evolution".Beautiful People launched a satirical campaign in support of same-sex marriage in the United States in June 2012 by producing images using look a likes.A statement from Beautiful claims it does not attempt to define beauty but “simply gives an accurate representation of what society's ideal of beauty as decided by the members”.Beautiful is an online dating service where applicants to the website are voted in or out by existing members of the opposite sex over a 48-hour period.“You don’t walk into a bar or club and look across the bar and say ‘look at that beautiful man’s or that beautiful woman’s spirit’. Beautiful People has seen tremendous success ever since, accepting more than 850,000 users, becoming available in over 150 countries around the world, and turning away more than 10 million singles based on member votes.Maybe in an ideal world, but the reality is that’s just not the way it works.” Greg was kind enough to give us the inside scoop about the motivation behind Beautiful People, the details of its voting system, and how he embraces the controversy that comes with catering to the “aesthetically blessed.” Greg is no stranger to exclusivity, having owned a private members nightclub in London in the early 2000s. Beautiful People is powered by a basic principle of human nature: People want to be with someone they’re attracted to.
A self-proclaimed “elite” dating website has removed around 3,000 members because they were "letting themselves go".After analysing 84 speed dating events taking place in bars across the United Kingdom, and the behaviour of over 3,700 singles, it was revealed that both men and women, when they had more dates to select from, they were more inclined to base their decision on whether to have another date with a particular person or not considering his/her looks.A more recent study carried out by researchers from Stanford University revealed that there is much more about physical appearance on speed dating.A dating site where current members vote in new members based on their appearance and basic profile information, Beautiful People makes sure users only see men and women who they may find attractive.
“It’s based on a fundamental principle of human nature — and that is we all, at least initially, want to be with someone who we find attractive,” said Greg Hodge, Managing Director of Beautiful People.Whether he’s a few inches shorter or she’s curvier than what you like, it’s hard to form a long-lasting relationship if the initial physical chemistry just isn’t there.
