    LONDON — Britons are among the ugliest people in the world, according to a dating website that says it only allows "beautiful people" to join.

    Fewer than one in eight British men and just three in 20 women who have applied to BeautifulPeople.com have been accepted, an emailed statement from the website showed.

    Existing members of the "elite dating site" rate how attractive potential members are over a 48 hour period, after applicants upload a recent photo and personal profile.

    The grunpiest maybe, but I guess due to obesity on an unprecedented increase, failing to rectify this, binge drinking. Sluts etc, ugly is not really descriptive, but i'll take it.

    tbh it is true, I've travelled through Europe quite abit, and the average looking European is far better looking than the average Brit. The statement is probably true, but perhaps us & the US

    In places like Italy you see very good looking women (by my British standards) doing what some might call demeaning jobs. eg. Bin ladies, truck drivers, even the gypsies. Brit girls are especially ugly in comparison.

    BUT we're also the sluttiest (true story, read it in an article) so perhaps only the REALLY ugly Britons felt the need to join a dating site. The beautiful and average people are all having loads of sex with each other and do not need a dating site.

    Perhaps the people who are considered beautiful are in a relationship, meaning they don't need to join a dating site.

    No that just tells you British people have the highest opinions of themselves, not that they are the ugliest.

    Partly due to us being so pale when compared to americans, italians, french, etc? But then Swedes aren't ugly. Strange.

    Could this just mean that all the attractive people in Britain know how to form a relationship IRL?
    Other countries have to use the internets. :pinch:
