From the New York Times:
The Devotion LeapJAN. 22, 2015David BrooksThe online dating site OkCupid asks its clients to rate each other’s attractiveness on a scale of 1 to 5. When men rated the women, the median score was about 3 and the ratings followed a bell curve — a few really attractive women and an equal number of women rated as unattractive.But when women rated men, the results were quite different. The median score was between 1 and 2. Only 1 in 6 of the guys was rated as having above average looks. Either the guys who go to places like OkCupid, Tinder and other sites are disproportionately homely, or women have unforgiving eyes...
Not gonna do it.
I have covered the execrable wattlings and hypocritical whinings and bald-faced lying of Mr. Brooks for a decade now. From every angle, and back when virtually no one else would touch the subject. I have noted with amusement Mr. Brooks sudden interest in, say, the subject of being alone in hotels
and, as the Great Mystery of Mr. Family Values Lecture Guy's divorce swirled to life, I believe I was the only one who bothered to, y'know, pay attention to the ring finger.
So as America's premier David Brooks expert, I have done my duty. And then some.
But unless some solvent media outlet wants to start cutting me paychecks every two weeks, I will not be further risking my fragile mental health by spelunking into to dark and loathsome horrors at the corner of David Brooks and OkCupid.
