    Depends a bit on the size of the student loans and what they were for. If I found out they used their student loans to be able to live without working while doing a double major in underwater basket weaving and 18th century Nepalese literature with a masters in paranormal phenomena, I wouldn't want to be on the hook for that.

    If they were working while in school and just took enough student loans to help them get that engineering or computer science or biochem degree or something, I'd be totally OK with that.

    And knocking me out with those American thighs

    Touche. I agree with that.

    Personally both help. Generally all people want to look good both from the front and the back.

    And when people talk about a guy's butt, that's ultimately "curves". Guys have them too. The angle of how the back transitions to the rear, angle of chest into the torso, neck into the back, etc. They all help accentuate a guy's figure, just as certain angles do on a woman.

    I hope at least some women will figure this out and maybe say to themselves "Ohh, maybe my expectations are too high"

    Or at least know how "average" works :3
    That would assume that none of them actually are average. Typically, the majority of the population is average, and the highs and the lows are the outliers. So say 50% are average looking, 25% are above, 25% are below.

    Also given that 1/3 of the US population is considered obese, that number could be skewed considerably.

    Interestingly, I just got messaged by a good looking woman on OKC not 5 minutes ago whose personality looks good from her profile. Unfortunately, she lives 67 miles away.

    That isn't that far in the grand scheme of things. Doesn't hurt to message her back and at the very least start as internet friends.

    Yeah, I already responded. It wouldn't be excessive, except that I have a leased car with mileage limits way lower than they would need to be for me to go out with someone who lives that far away.

    I think borrowing money for a reasonable investment is fine, for example an education, borrowing money to maintain lifestyle is something totally different though. Grown ups should have learned to live on a budget, you don't borrow money for a trip to Thailand for example, you save up for that. You don't take a SMS loan at 4 o'clock in the morning, shit like that doesn't sit right with me. It's just irresponsible behaviour.
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    That, and the fact that when people say "Below average" they aren't using it as a mathematical term that compares someone against a "real" average. It's a qualitative statement.

    How can 80% be below average? By definition that doesn't work >.>

    For what it's worth, as a dude I find most women attractive in some way or other. Maybe women are just too picky?

    Depends on what the average is: average looks, or average man.

    I suppose that's technically true, but given the sample size I'd say it's statistically unlikely.

    Being 43 and getting back into the dating scene after a year break from a really bad break up, I can tell you that in the not so great state of Utah, if you don't have movie star looks and a deep wallet, you are not getting a date. Even if the gal is butt ass ugly chances are online you're not getting a date. Women are just as shallow if not more so than men in the 40+ age group.

    Well, one has to take into account that a dating website may not account for a true sample of demographics.

    I fail to understand how that could be the case.

    You're talking millions of members and an accurate sampling of one gender but not the other?

    While possible I really don't think it's the case.

    I wish this blog hadn't shut down so they could have posted a followup where they controlled for this.

    No I mean of men. More types of men might be attracted to online dating than other types. This could skew the average.

    While possible, I still find it extremely unlikely. You're talking about a really huge sample size.

    I see, so you assume that it is a uniform distribution? that there are equally many ugly, reasonably ugly, normal, reasonably pretty and pretty people in the world. I see. That is a horrible assumption, but why not just say that in the first place?

    The median is the middle value; the one that has 50% below and 50% above. The average value equals the median only with symmetric distributions (gaussian, uniform, student t etc), but not in skewed ones (chi-square, exponential, beta etc). Here is an image to explain the difference:
