It has emerged that only 15% of UK females and 12% of UK males who have tried to join the VIP group of adonises and aphrodites, ever make it onto the dating site.
Membership is granted to an elite few by existing members, who are given the opportunity to judge hopefuls over a 48 hour provisional period. Possible options are: ‘yes, definitely’, ‘hmmm yes, ok’, ‘hmmm no, not really’ and ‘NO definitely NOT’.
So far, Swedish men have proven the most attractive applicants, with a solid 65% of them making the grade.
Perhaps the secret’s in the bad weather, because Scandinavia appears to have the best track-record for rearing beautiful people, with Norwegian women topping the charts for most attractive in the world.
The site has rejected a total of 1.8 million people from 190 countries over the past 2 years- that’s an astounding 83% of all applicants.
Greg Hodge, managing director of the site, attributes the statistics to the idea that Brits take little care over their appearances, preferring instead to kick back with a few drinks in the pub.
“If you go to some countries they are very into how they look – very health and body conscious,” he said.
If you are one of the 85-88% of Brits who prefer a pint to a pedicure, you’re probably a lot happier in the pub than spending your Friday night judging the appearance of strangers on the internet. If, however, you are unhappy with how you look- whether ‘beautiful’, ‘average’ or downright British, then you may wish to work on your self-esteem.
