Dallas Singles Are the 10th Most Superficial in America, Says Creepy Dating Website

horses-nuzzling.jpg
There's a new internet dating study that ranks U.S. cities in order of superficiality. In effort to determine whose rivers flow most shallowly, the site, whatsyourprice.com, weighed the amount of time each area's singles spend hovering over individual dating profiles before clicking ahead. According to it, Dallas singles are fairly vapid, coming in at 10th place. Houston's are worse, repping a strong third.

The numbers were culled from Google Analytics and paired with geographical information, then ranked. The idea here is that Salt Lake City singles -- who spend 7.2 seconds per page -- are only concerned with physical appearance, while someone who lurks for 36 seconds is a deep soul who reads French poetry. In Dallas, we blow 13.7 seconds per profile.

How Portland, Oregon pulled second place (7.7 seconds) while Dallas trails eight spots behind is beyond me. We go to tanning beds IN THE SUMMER. Shallow is our turf. Step off, other metropolitan statistical areas.

To fully understand our low placement, it helps to look at the website that created it. WhatsYourPrice.com is classified as an "auction dating site," where beautiful women and men with money unite. But don't confuse it for an escort site; this sternly posed lady graphic makes the distinction quite clear.

Here's its pitch: A beautiful woman is buried under emails by potential suitors. You, the misunderstood but well-intentioned fella, send greetings over and over and over -- which she'd like to respond to but cannot. She's much too beautiful to cut through the white noise of online dating. She needs help. Your help. What's a generous guy with high standards to do?

Pay the bitch.

At WhatsYourPrice.com, dudes shell dates for cash. If it's enough cash, a lady will take his money and spend a chunk of time with him, but not have sex, because that's unwholesome.

The most intriguing part of WYP.com is the dating advice section toward the bottom. It teaches these newly-blossoming gentlemen how to appear like real humans so their ladydates feel "secure."

In WYP's recommended dating ideas, hiking is listed. The site's narrators understand that hiking might make women feel uncomfortable, due to the remote location, body dumping ease and lack of scream-hearing, so they follow-up the suggestion idea with this advice:

You are very smart! I lived in Dallas from 1971 to 1992 and I saw Dallas change before my very eyes. I was single and one of those women seeking a man with a bright promising future.  So I hung around with the superficial because that's who and what they are.  I saw with my own eyes and felt that "price" you are talking about.  I ended up moving to San Diego and marrying a man who was never going to be rich, but we are doing ok.  Dallas became superficial when people from all over the US moved there.  It became a melting pot of many different people due to a lot of good jobs there.  People there don't talk with the Texas "twang" because they are not from Texas.  Just a little history from a "small town Texan" moving to the "Big City".

D Magazine has to be the most pretentious, superficial rag in existence. As well as Paper.

People who write that kind of crap are usually the ones who are superficial.

10th!? I think they need to re-evaluate the numbers. Dallas is the "fakest" place I've EVER been. I think we have superficial tainted water here!

Pretentious at some but mostly an accurate point.

"Reassure her that you're not going to kill her." That's actually good advise. If every man did that, I wouldn't have to leave a strand of my hair in his car as evidence and gently scratch his arm to get his skin cells under my nails. #toomuchCSI

Shallow is an objective opinion. Men throughout history have been drawn to ladies who look healthy, young and fertile and women have always been interested in a partner who could provide for her children. I give kudos to folks who know what they want but if looks and money are the top priority there is a price to pay for that as well.

most people in Dallas, single or not, are pretty superficial.
