Intimidating guys attractive
Plus, it's hot when a girl can laugh at herself or you--I like women who bust balls. Granted, I think my girlfriend is the only girl I've dated who I would say is really funny, and the fact that she is more clever than I am most of the time, that just makes her the charming one of our couple.I should also say I guess someone who is witty/smart funny could be intimidating, but someone who makes just fart jokes? Guy IV: My girlfriend is funnier than me, and it's the best thing in the world.I wouldn't date a girl who wasn't funny--but yeah, it can be a little bit intimidating.I think it's because guys feel like being funny is a tool they can use when picking up / meeting / dating a girl to impress her, or get her to like him, and it's a little intimidating when the person on the other side of the line has your secret weapon too.__So the verdict appears to be "kind of, but mostly no." What do you guys think?An unequal wealth distribution is to be expected, but there is a more interesting question: What is the degree of this unequal wealth distribution and how does this inequality compare to other economies?
I wanted to understand this trend in more quantitative terms (also, I like pretty graphs).
To do this, I decided to treat Tinder as an economy and study it as an economist (socio-economist) would.
Since I wasn’t getting any hot Tinder dates I had plenty of time to do the math (so you don’t have to). The wealth of an economy is quantified in terms its currency.
As someone who is considered funny enough by at least three people to make a living doing it, I have always wondered whether the old "women like men who make them laugh; men like women who laugh at their jokes" thing might be reversible.
Personally, while I enjoy casually dating comedians/other professional joke-makers, I tend to fall harder for the "straight man" type, which fits with the aforementioned mating dichotomy.
