is that a good or bad thing?

90th percentile means that I am 1 in 10, meaning every 11th girl is prettier than me and 90th percentile equates to 6.25/10 which isn't high

It means you are in his opinion in the top ten percent of good looking girls.

yeah I know, that isn't good imo
since top 10% is like a 6.25/10 (1 in 10)

I would have to hear him say it to judge. He might just be trying to pay her a compliment in a rather awkward way.

Maybe if you work on your wardrobe and make up you can get to most attractive girl in the world and solve the issue entirely!

Well then why are you taking it as a compliment if you don’t think it’s good?

Like Scotney says he thinks you are in the top 10%.
He won't have thought it through any further than that.
If he said you were the most attractive person in the world it would sound more OTT than 90th percentile.

How did you go from 1 in 10 to 6.25/10?

It is amazing how you are trying to turn a compliment to something negative.

Take it as he thinks you are fit then go out with him if you fancy him. Dont overcomplicate it. Good luck

Well a 1 in 10 is a 6.25/10 based on the objective beauty scale

Im not taking it as a compliment. He meant it as a compliment, to him idk 90th percentile might be good but in the grand scheme of things it isn’t that good at all

Ok, cool. You are a 6.25/10 then. I doubt he called you a 6.25/10.

Oh well, your choice.
Seems pretty big headed of you to think that you’re higher than 90th percentile in looks so maybe your attitude drops you down on the attractivenessscale 🤷🏼*♀️
