Everyone is always looking to date someone that is smarter, richer, better looking than themselves in order to up their own self-esteem or impressions from others.
It’s called DATING OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE, and there’s a study that talks about how we all are aware of that hierarchy.
Here’s the details from that study:
- People tend to date folks who are “about 25% more desireable” than themselves
- Men can expect replies on messages sent out on dating apps about 20% of the time
- Women with post-graduate degrees are less desirable than women with undergrad degrees
But here’s the main takeaway that we all should pay attention to:
- A woman’s average desirability begins to drop from the time she’s 18 years old.
- A man’s average desirability peaks around 50 years old.
It’s an old TV sitcom trope, that the family is headed up by a smart mother and a doofus dad who always does doofus things.

We’ve all heard about the CREEPY DATING RULE, where you’re not supposed to date anyone younger than half your age + 7, right?
So if you’re 30 years old, you can’t date anyone younger than 22 years old. And flipping that around – if you’re 30, you shouldn’t date anyone older than 46 years old.
22 years old through 46 years old. That sounds like a pretty reasonable dating age range, don’t you think?

Do you consider yourself a SHORT MAN or a TALL MAN?
We’ll make it easy for you.
A SHORT MAN is generally considered anyone who is under 5’7″. Someone who is considered TALL has to be at least 6’1″ in height.

Have you ever been to a topless beach?
Perhaps this is a better question: have you ever been to a topless beach so that you could sunbathe topless yourself?
Chances are – especially if you’re reading this in the US — is that you haven’t experienced the joys of European Sunbathing (as it’s known in Las Vegas). Unless you count that one time in Cancun where nobody knew who you were and you only did it on a dare from your drunk sorority sister.

One would think that today’s dating scene should be a bit different from how it was back in the day. Times change, people change, philosophies on what is culturally acceptable change all the time.
Wearing sneakers out to a fancy dinner? Never used to do it, but now we do it all the time. Dress up for airplane travel? Not anymore – tank tops on hairy men are all the rage at the airport these days.

If you are over 40 years old and still single, it can be harder and harder to find a date.
While your decision to hold off on a long-term relationship as you approach middle-age can vary, there is always a perception that needs to be overcome – “why are they not married yet/seeing someone? Something must be wrong with them.” In reality, that may not actually be the case.

Left-handed people are notoriously clumsy, mainly because they live in a right-hand world and devices aren’t designed with the left-handed person in mind.
Lefties make up about 10% of the world’s population, so it’s only natural that there will be things that just aren’t made to work well for southpaws.

But what once was a Very Special Episode of Blossom or Family Ties, or one of those mandatory Afterschool Specials that we all rushed home to watch together – it’s now become almost a punchline in any major sitcom or movie being made today.

Take a moment, and think back to your First Kiss. Is it something you think back fondly of? Or regretfully?
Was it kinda romantic, like in 16 Candles? Or was it in the back of a coat closet while all your friends were outside chanting “kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss!”?
Some first kisses come with a ton of anxiety – what’s it like, are we doing it right?
