Dating someone of similar attractiveness
Men follow the first: Short men prefer short women, and tall men prefer tall women.Women follow the second: All women prefer taller men, but tall women display a stronger preference for tall men.For intelligence, women follow the first pattern: Those who describe themselves as intelligent prefer men who describe themselves as intelligent, and women who don’t prefer men who don’t.

(It’s possible that they don’t really feel a stronger preference, but merely feel more confident in their ability to win a fellow high-status mate.) On the other hand, traits whose optimal value is more arguable — like whether you have children or what religion you follow — tend to follow the first pattern.Those with children preferred those with children; those without preferred those without.And people generally prefer those of their own religion.In a final effort to find opposites who attracted on e Harmony, I decided to look for the cliché example: sugar daddies. Of course, in a dataset of a million couples, you’ll find some who fit the sugar daddy stereotype: a younger and more attractive woman matched with an older, wealthier man.And it is true that more attractive women are more influenced by the man’s income when deciding whether to message him: Unattractive women aren’t much affected by a man’s income, but very attractive women are much more likely to message men with higher incomes.But this is true for men as well, and it isn’t necessarily a sugar daddy phenomenon — maybe more attractive people can just afford to be pickier.The sugar daddy stereotype fails in other ways as well.Women who message significantly older men were calculated to be less attractive than those men, and I could find no evidence that they cared more about income, or less about attractiveness, than women paired with men their own age.If you’re an aspiring sugar daddy, e Harmony may not be for you.I also looked for opposites attracting in other online dating data.I spoke to Christian Rudder, founder of Ok Cupid, which has a rich and idiosyncratic data set.
