Many hundreds of people a day go through the trouble of doing this, so we’ve compiled an excellent dataset of real-world couples.

People do everything they can in their Ok Cupid profiles to make themselves seem awesome, and surely many of our users genuinely are.You can also see a more subtle vanity at work: starting at roughly 5' 8", the top of the dotted curve tilts even further rightward.This means that guys round up a bit more than usual, stretching for that coveted psychological benchmark.When we looked into the data for women, we were surprised to see height exaggeration was just as widespread, though without the lurch towards a benchmark height: These are the average weekly unsolicited message totals by height; you can think of these as the number of times a person is “hit on” out of the blue each week on Ok Cupid.The genders are plotted on different scales because of the eternal fact that men almost always make the first move, so women get many more unsolicited messages.
