Ready for another perversion of Darwin’s ideas? Take a look at Darwin Dating.
Sick of dating websites filled with ugly, unattractive, desperate fatsos? We are.
Darwin Dating was created exclusively for beautiful, desirable people. Our strict rules and natural selection process ensures all our members have winning looks.
It’s not at all original — it’s a rehash of the “hot or not” formula, where people submit pictures and readers can click through and rank them — and all they’ve added is this inane association with evolution. Well, that and perhaps the most smugly egotistical, self-congratulatory copy for being superficial that I’ve seen on any of these sites. The juxtaposition of the claim that they are “beautiful, desirable people” immediately after slamming all those ugly losers out there is priceless.
Their pseudoscientific rationale is also creepy and ignorant.
In 1859 Charles Darwin proposed the theory that living beings evolved through a process of natural selection where the fittest, healthiest and most attractive beings bred with each other to further their species. It has become difficult for the modern attractive human to find other modern attractive humans. Darwin Dating has been created to better the lives of attractive people and to encourage them to find other attractive people with whom they can breed.
Attractive people are at a disadvantage on normal internet dating sites. They have to wade through a plethora of ugly people and ugly people pretending to be attractive in order to find someone who matches their own attractiveness. Our strict rules and natural selection process makes Darwin Dating the perfect medium for attractive people to find other people of their own kind.
Darwin Dating is a site for 18-35’s only. The male sex drive peaks at 18 and the female sex drive peeks at 30 making 18-35 the perfect breeding age bracket.
They’ve confused natural selection with Darwin’s theory of sexual selection, and even that has been distorted into a caricature of itself. No, Darwin’s theory is not about how mates are selected on the basis of photographs.
They also really need to look up meaning of the word “attractive”. I don’t think attractive people have much problem attracting attention; on the other hand, shallow, desperate, boring people who look good might want to hawk themselves in a venue that doesn’t let anyone look deeper than the skin, and voila, Darwin Dating has a market.
They also say this:
Charles Darwin was a genius, but unfortunately very ugly. It is ironic that he wouldn’t be able to join Darwin Dating!
What’s really ironic is that Charles Darwin was brilliant, held deep friendships throughout his life, was a caring and devoted husband and doting father, and he was rich, yet a site that claims to have an algorithm for finding excellent mates admits that it would reject him.
