I don't think the people on the site are necessarily shallow, but it's shallow (in the sense that it's not deep/incomplete, not "shallow" as in inherently stupid) to think you can pick a mate based on one characteristic that you've allowed another person to judge for you. It's not really the same as an online community of Jewish people, unless it's called "JewishEnough" and there's a random rabbi on the other end deciding who's actually Jewish and who's not.

Have you ever known anyone who dates based solely on looks? I have, and it's unpleasant.

Looks fade, and people who only want "hot" dates are indeed shallow. I'll stand by my assessment of these people.

omg, that would make for an absolutely brilliant parody site. More than you could probably imagine...

Now THIS is an exclusive dating service. Only the finest whor...oops, ladies need apply.

Sounds like a fancy escort service to me or just the place for all the little girls whom were told by their mother, marry a rich man.

My beloved mama always told me: If you marry for money, you'll earn it.

Your mama is awesome!!!

I can understand wanting to date someone who is attractive, but there is got to be more than a washboard stomach or huge boobs. In high school I dated a guy who looked like Montgomery Clift in "A Place in the Sun." Yes, he was gorgeous, but dumb as a box of hair. And the lack of brain power totally uglified him.

I think it's stupid, especially since people can just post fake pictures anyway. If people are really that shallow to only want to consider dating somebody who is smoking hot though, we might as well just pair them off with each other.

Would it be shallow to put hot as the first prerequisite and then discriminate by intelligence and personality?

You have to discriminate on some things when looking for somebody...otherwise, you could just be paired up with anybody...nothing would matter. Looks are just packaging though. If you are going to seek people based on looks first and foremost, I find that to be shallow.

At least it isn't a negative quality.

So if you have intelligence and personality but you're not hot enough, then you just get passed by every time. If intelligence and personality are really someone's priority, then they would give a chance to a person who is not hot/not as hot. I think to be ruled by any one priority can be considered shallow, but especially looks. Eventually someone's looks will fade/change, and unless your relationship is based upon so much more what will you have left? Unless you just dump the person and look for a younger, hotter person.

I have known many really hot/good looking/beautiufl people who are really so ugly when you get to know them. And some average looking people who are truly beautiful. Sure it's nice to look at good looking people and I'm not saying that's inherently wrong-but to base your life and life choices on it is ultimately rather pathetic.

Intelligence and looks are not mutually exclusive and being discriminating due to either isn't a bad thing.

And we can't overlook the quirk of the universe that allows wit, charm and cash to augment a guys chances much better than they would a girl for a much longer proportion of lifetime.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

My friends and I have always had different opinions of whom we think is attractive.

For example, I think Paris Hilton is definitely not hot while some think she is super hot.
