Dating App ‘Once’ Ranks Users’ Attractiveness
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but a new dating app will now let users know if they are hot or not.
The U.K. based app “Once” evaluates users photos and then tells them how attractive they are using a scale of 1 to 5.
The app’s creator says other mainstream dating apps use similar algorithms to facilitate better pairings and he doesn’t see the point of hiding such crucial information from users just to spare their feelings.
Meanwhile, psychologists says that physical attraction is important in romantic relationships, even more than a sense of humor, intelligence, and kindness.
That’s because people are hard wired to associate physical attractiveness to other positive qualities.
A lack of physical attraction can cause couples to be less affectionate to each other and could cause their sex life to suffer.
