OkCupid is through tainting its pool of attractive members with all you degenerates out there. So this week, the dating site sent an exclusive email to the "top half" of its most attractive users. With hot person privileges galore!
If you're in the blessed upper echelon of OkCupid hotties, congratulations! You'll start seeing more good-looking people in your search results than ever before. According to the email sent out by the site:
We are very pleased to report that you are in the top half of OkCupid's most attractive users. The scales recently tipped in your favor, and we thought you'd like to know...
Your new elite status comes with one important privilege:
You will now see more attractive people in your match results.
This new status won't affect your actual match percentages, which are still based purely on your answers and desired match's answers. But the people we recommend will be more attractive. Also! You'll be shown to more attractive people in their match results.
This isn't the first time a dating company has tried to filter its fatties, and OkCupid does insist that you'll still be matched according to what you're looking for on the inside. Just as long as the outside is also up to par.
So: if you didn't get the good news, I am sorry that a random OkCupid drone judged you based on your appearance. And if that email did show up in your inbox? I am sorry that a random OkCupid drone judged you based on your appearance. [Consumerist]
