A few decades ago, Jacqueline Kennedy famously said, “There are two kinds of women: those who want power in the world and those who want power in bed.” Does that mean women are either intelligent or pretty? Well, our team did an experiment on dating apps for Android recently. Here is how it works:
We created two profiles – one is a pretty woman’s dating profile and the other is an intelligent woman’s dating profile. These two profiles are on both Badoo and POF (two popular dating apps for Android). And here’s their performance:
The pretty woman looks like the blonde girl in Legally Blonde – she is attractive and sexy. Her No. 1 selling point is her good looks. Her profile isn’t very well-written because she is supposed to be pretty only. There are many grammar and spelling errors in her profile. In contrast, the intelligent woman looks like the brunette in Legally Blonde – she is not ugly, but she definitely doesn’t look like a Victoria’s Secret hottest model. Her profile is very well-written because she is supposed to be very well-educated – her writing skills indicate her high IQ.
After one week, the pretty woman gets 74 matches on Badoo and 69 matches on POF. By contrast, the intelligent woman gets 41 matches on Badoo and 38 matches on POF. Apparently, the pretty woman is much more popular on dating apps for Android.
That being said, let’s have a look at what happens next.
Among 74 matches on Badoo and 69 matches on POF, the pretty girl has 39 conversations going, partly because her conversational skills aren’t very good, and partly because the majority of men who like her aren’t really into high quality conversations – they are only attracted to her sexiness.
However, among 41 matches on Badoo and 38 matches on POF, the intelligent woman has 37 conversations going, partly because she is an outstanding conversationalist, and partly because equally intelligent guys like her (these men have the skills to keep the conversations going).
Do you have a dating preference? Which category do you prefer, pretty women or intelligent women?
In the end, the pretty woman can only keep 15 men’s attention after two weeks. Yet the intelligent woman keeps 26 men’s attention on both Badoo and POF. That means the intelligent woman’s final results are much better than the pretty women’s results, although the pretty lady attracted many more men at the beginning.
Key takeaways from this experiment:
Dating apps for Android are best characterized by members’ photos, which means your first impression is entirely determined by how you look.
Your first impression is not your last impression. The first impression will attract other users to you, but the last impression will make real things happen.
Gorgeous women with brains are rare: because a good-looking girl has been aware of her attractiveness based on how she’s been treated since a young age, she is less likely to work hard in order to make herself stand out from the crowd. That’s why I highly appreciate attractive women who have brains – they are happy to do the hard work in order to improve their intelligence, even though they already have resources. As a result, beautiful women with brains have the power to change the world.
Relationships with intelligent women are more sustainable because smart women know how to manage relationships effectively and generally have good communication skills – that’s how they survive and thrive in modern-day society where women have chances to become successful.
Intelligent women are usually not high-maintenance women because they have the capabilities to look after themselves and their men. That’s why smart men choose intelligent women on dating apps for Android.
It’s easy to get hot women on popular dating apps because many men who choose hot girls aren’t that good at online game. If you have good game, it’s not hard to get sexy women who use dating apps.
The quality of women on Badoo and POF is generally very high. In this day and age, high-quality women also download the most popular dating apps. It doesn’t mean they can’t meet high-value men offline. It only means they consider the best dating apps are a legitimate way to meet single men and maybe they find this method saves them time.
