In order to put this dating-app inequality in context, Goldgeier—inspired by an ingenious Medium postabout the socioeconomic prospects for men on Tinder—considered how it compared to financial inequality across the world.

Psychologists believe that romantic love occurs when our unconscious becomes exposed to someone who matches the archetype of parental love we experienced growing up, someone whose behavior matches our emotional map for intimacy.

Even when you have a beautiful woman in front of you, you still might be thinking about all the other beautiful women that you’re missing out on.

On average, users rate women as more attractive than men during their 20s, but in their early 30s, this reverses. From that point on, users rate men as more attractive than women on average.
