There’s something kind of sweet about this . . . or maybe we all just struggle with low self-esteem.
A recent survey asked people to rate how attractive they are compared to their significant other. And only 9% of us think we’re hotter than the person we’re with.
56% said their partner is more attractive. 35% said they’re both about the same.
When people had to rate their own attractiveness on a scale from zero to 10, the most common answer was right in the middle. 40% said they’re a 5 . . . 25% said a 6 or a 7 . . . 7% said an 8 or a 9 . . . only 2% said they’re a 10 . . . and 2% said they’re a ZERO.
Almost no one rated their partner at less than a 5 though. 24% said they’re a 5 . . . 31% said a 6 or 7 . . . 23% said an 8 or a 9 . . . and 12% said they’re a 10. Apparently most of us wouldn’t even WANT to be with a 10 though, because it’s too intimidating.
When people were asked for the IDEAL level of hotness in a partner, 20% said a 5 . . . 9% said a 6 . . . 20% said a 7 . . . another 20% said an 8 . . . 6% said a 9 . . . and only 11% said they’d want to be with a perfect 10.
Pretty much no one said they’d want to be with someone who’s less than a 5. And men were about twice as likely as women to say they wish they could date a 10. (YouGov)
