https://quillette.com/2019/03/12/attraction-inequality-and-the-dating-economy/

A data scientist representing the popular dating app “Hinge” reported on the Gini coefficients he had found in his company’s abundant data, treating “likes” as the equivalent of income. He reported that heterosexual females faced a Gini coefficient of 0.324, while heterosexual males faced a much higher Gini coefficient of 0.542. So neither sex has complete equality: in both cases, there are some “wealthy” people with access to more romantic experiences and some “poor” who have access to few or none. But while the situation for women is something like an economy with some poor, some middle class, and some millionaires, the situation for men is closer to a world with a small number of super-billionaires surrounded by huge masses who possess almost nothing. According to the Hinge analyst:

On a list of 149 countries’ Gini indices provided by the CIA World Factbook, this would place the female dating economy as 75th most unequal (average—think Western Europe) and the male dating economy as the 8th most unequal (kleptocracy, apartheid, perpetual civil war—think South Africa).

It’s all very common sense, and I’m not really a chad, but cot damn I do feel bad for below avg doods. Or even average ones. Makes me feel better to know that even as an 8 it makes sense for me to sometimes feel like I’m on the bottom end though

“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.” These studies examined “likes” and “swipes” on Hinge and Tinder, respectively, which are required if there is to be any contact (via messages) between prospective matches.

"The revealed preference among most women to attempt to engage romantically only with the same small percentage of men who are perceived as attractive is consistent with the social system called “polygyny,” in which a small percentage of males monopolize the mating opportunities with all females, while many other males have no access to mates."

"It seems hard to avoid a basic conclusion: that the majority of women find the majority of men unattractive and not worth engaging with romantically, while the reverse is not true."

Tbf, the bottom 80% of women are physically more attractive than the bottom 80% of men. The bottom 80% of men really do a shit job regarding their appearance

Who has time to focus on their appearance when working two uber shifts in between retail gigs at barnes and nobles and starbucks? Poor economics and gig economy and processed foods with the usual stress associated with being a man in today's world has lead to shittier appearances for those involved.

in America? the exact opposite is true...

avg American male: 5'9", 196 lbs

avg American female: 5'4", 169 lbs

...you tell me which of these looks worse?

This also explains why American men are often ranked in the Top Tier for attractiveness while U.S. women are near the bottom.

Love is fundamentally an illusion used to trick a man into devoting his resources to a specific woman because you think she's "special" in some way that's relevant to you, that you're "compatible", a good fit, fated to be together, whatever. Low end men get blown out constantly by 5s and 6s or lower = illusion ruined, they become jaded. Rockstars and NFL quarterbacks have too much access to high-shelf 9s and 10s, throwing themselves at them no less = illusion also ruined and they may also become jaded and callous towards women.
