Whether he’s a few inches shorter or she’s curvier than what you like, it’s hard to form a long-lasting relationship if the initial physical chemistry just isn’t there.
Genevieve Hodge, who founded the website with her husband Greg, said: “This may sound harsh, and it is the most difficult part of managing the business.“We take no pleasure in removing members, but it is a necessary evil in order to maintain the beautiful community and our prized business model.”Her husband claimed the website had been “kind” in breaking the news to ditched people with emails encouraging them to apply again when they are “back looking their best”.
Beautiful People launched a satirical campaign in support of same-sex marriage in the United States in June 2012 by producing images using look a likes.
The images depicted Michele Bachmann marrying Sarah Palin and Donald Trump marrying Mitt Romney with President Barack Obama as the priest.
Hodge acknowledges that attraction is a strong criterion when romantically approaching prospective mates, and attempts to transfer this aspect of dating onto the website.
Greg Hodge said: "Beautiful is based on a fundamental principle of human nature, that being we all romantically want to be with someone we find attractive, it's Darwinism, it's millions of years of evolution".
