That's because women generally message men who are five points more attractive (as rated by OKCupid users) than they are, while they typically receive messages from men who are seven points less attractive than they are.At the same time, OKCupid found that men currently send 3.5 times the number of messages women send, suggesting that few women are aware of the advantages of stepping up to the plate.In the world of romance, we seek out partners who are just as "hot" or "not hot" as we are.A new study supports the idea that super models flock together while individuals lacking the perfect face and body also stick together.Based on an analysis of 70,000 users who logged on at least three times in a month, OKCupid found that women are 2.5 times more likely to receive a response to their messages than men are.Moreover, women who send the first message wind up meeting more attractive men than women who wait for a man to ping them, the report finds.

Ariely, Leonard Lee of Columbia University's Business School in New York, and their colleagues looked at information from an online dating Web site called HOTor NOT.com, which allows members to rate others on their physical attractiveness.So while a man might have no qualms about going after someone much better looking than he is, a woman will tend more to choose partners with compatible looks.
