I came across a few articles this week about tens of thousands of people being kicked off a dating website for not being physically attractive enough. Frankly, I'm still trying to decide how I feel about the existence of such a site.
For those that don't know, the site is beautifulpeople.com. Basically, it touts itself as an online club for the aesthetically elite. Basically, it's the perfect dating site for anyone looking for a trophy wife (or husband) - as long as you're considered to be eye candy yourself.
Because it's the members themselves who hold the entrance key into this club. Applicants can submit their profiles (for a fee), and then current members have to vote on their level of attractiveness for two days before the site can officially confirm or deny their membership.
I thought about being offended that this site even exists. I mean, who would join this site anyway?? But then I considered the real possibility that this site keeps (at least a percentage of) the extremely shallow people out of the normal dating pool... which is really a win-win situation, in my humble opinion.
If any of my (more confident and thicker skinned) friends dare apply to this site and get accepted, I demand that I be allowed to see these so-called beautiful people for myself!!
