Looks come first to women when dating online?
Is physical attraction more important than a well written profile when dating online?
Most dating sites keep telling us that a picture says a thousand words. Which is why most people spend their time taking photos that portray them at their best or even upload photos of their younger hotter looking friends. How many people even bother with no-photo profiles!

What are you looking for?
A recent study reported by The Shorthorn found that ... when searching for prospective mates online, ladies are more likely to judge men based on physical appearance. When participants were asked if they would date a person after going through written profiles, women seemed more selective based on the looks of the individual in question than men. Apparently, looks influenced their choice to date a man more than they did men. Is this really a chick thing?
I must admit the number of times I have got emails from chicks who have faceless profiles, I usually ask for their photos first … no matter how flirtatious the emails are. For me, it’s the photo that makes me gauge a person. Much as relationships aren’t about looks, I think there needs to be some physical attraction … right?
I do not agree with this research because I think men are more likely to gauge prospective partners based on looks. Women seem to be more emotional and they look for substance when choosing men online.
Do you believe looks matter less for men when dating online?
