10 simple rules to dating the sports guy

This means that the Tinder economy has more inequality than 95.1% of all the world’s national economies.

In addition, it was determined that a man of average attractiveness would be “liked” by approximately 0.87% (1 in 115) of women on Tinder.

Since I wasn’t getting any hot Tinder dates I had plenty of time to do the math (so you don’t have to). The wealth of an economy is quantified in terms its currency.

In most of the world the currency is money (or goats). The more “likes” you get the more wealth you have in the Tinder ecosystem. Attractive guys have more wealth in the Tinder economy (get more “likes”) than unattractive guys do.

This compares vary favorably with the data I collected that shows a 12% average “like” rate.

The Gini coefficient for the Tinder economy based on “like” percentages was calculated to be 0.58.

At this point I would be remiss to not mention a few caveats about these data.

First, the sample size is small (only 27 females were interviewed). The females who responded to my questions could have lied about the percentage of guys they “like” in order to impress me (fake super hot Tinder me) or make themselves seem more selective.

To answer that question we are first going to need some data (and a nerd to analyze it).

Tinder doesn't supply any statistics or analytics about member usage so I had to collect this data myself.
