Who wants to be part of another social experiment?

I did one of these months ago looking at height preferences and it was a pretty big success so I decided to do another one. This time I want to test ones attractiveness against how often they're approached.

Basically, there are two prevailing yet conflicting perspectives on how often girls get approached and asked out. These are 1) the hottest girls get approached/asked out all the time and 2) the hottest girls don't get asked out, and I want to see to what degree these are true, at least within the G@G population.

So, if you could answer these questions for me that would be swell. This is primarily driven towards girls because let's be honest, the overwhelming trend is guys approaching girls, but I want to hear guys' responses as well to see if there are any comparable, but much less amplified, trends.

1) How often do you catch someone of the opposite sex looking at you? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)

2) How often does someone of the opposite sex approach you? (this includes any verbal exchange such as cold approaches and cat-calling) (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)

3) How often does someone of the opposite sex ask for your number? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)

4) How often does someone of the opposite sex ask you out on a date? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)

5) What rating, of out 10, would you give youself? (I know, I know, this is the most flawed part because there's a huge bias in subjective self-reporting but there's no simple way around it. Please be as honest and realistic as possible)

Once I get enough responses I'll crunch the numbers and give you all the results in a myTake.

Thanks guys!

  • 1) How often do you catch someone of the opposite sex looking at you? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)
    Here and there. I don't really pay much attention tho. I'll go with once a week?

    2) How often does someone of the opposite sex approach you? (this includes any verbal exchange such as cold approaches and cat-calling) (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)
    Never actually. Its not common at my city (its relatively small)

    3) How often does someone of the opposite sex ask for your number? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)
    Ehh, again, not something people usually do. Mostly they search me on facebook xd. Sometimes they ask my number for whatsapp tho. So i'll say once a month? lol

    4) How often does someone of the opposite sex ask you out on a date? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)
    Once a month i think? Or every two months? Depends on how much I go out.

    5) What rating, of out 10, would you give youself? (I know, I know, this is the most flawed part because there's a huge bias in subjective self-reporting but there's no simple way around it. Please be as honest and realistic as possible)
    I'm actually really self confident person, so I'll give myself 8/10 :P

  • Omg @jsmuve , I love these casual GaG experiments you do! I'd love to contribute. However, I must point out some things if their skew the results. I can't answer in good faith without a disclaimer of its needed.

    1) How often do you catch someone of the opposite sex looking at you? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)
    -10 times a day? Whatever a lot is
    BUT... this is because I work in an office park. There are over 1k different people I could pass by, so there is more opportunity and more of a chance someone is bound to like what they see. *milkshakes* also, some girls could be oblivious or delusional and self-grandiose, so high margin of error on self-reporting this.

    2) How often does someone of the opposite sex approach you? (this includes any verbal exchange such as cold approaches and cat-calling) (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)
    -how often do men strike up a conversation? Is say 1-2x/mo.
    BUT... my environment matters. I don't go out to bars/clubs and if I do go out for leisure, I'm with my family. I smoke at work in the designated area. People are prone to strike up convos in such an instance but itd never be lewd because sexual harassment lawsuits and firing. Of you're referring to being picked up, however, thatd be 0x/yr.

    3) How often does someone of the opposite sex ask for your number? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)

    - 3x/yr
    BUT... (see above) and this was to use whatsapp to communicate further.

    4) How often does someone of the opposite sex ask you out on a date? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)

    -0x/yr
    BUT... (see above)

    5) What rating, of out 10, would you give youself? (I know, I know, this is the most flawed part because there's a huge bias in subjective self-reporting but there's no simple way around it. Please be as honest and realistic as possible)

    -7/10 in person (4/10 in photos T_T)
    BUT... please provide a scale for this experiment so we can standardize our ratings.

  • 1. I mostly run into men at work and generally don't pay attention, but will notice about 3-4 guys looking or behaving extra sweet with me per day. The same few guys repeat the trend each work day. I can count 10 guys at work total who checked me out in total, so I will safely say 7 guy stares/week.

    2. I stride on the street because I am anti-catcalling. I don't count those as hit ons. Those guys hit on anyone. I am never approached in cafes, libraries, work, school, parties, etc.

    3. The last time someone asked for my number was 2011, that is four years ago.

    4. In high school 12 years ago, someone first and last mentioned the word date when asking me out. Otherwise, never. Another guy (not from #3) asked me to coffee on social media.

    5. I can't rate myself. There are days I think I look very good and feel like dressing up. I was most happy when a guy I liked said I was sexy. That day I felt like a 10. Otherwise, I am very hard on myself and feel very ugly because guys never seem to think me relationship material. I am nerdy too. So a 6.

  • 1) How often do you catch someone of the opposite sex looking at you? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)

    - It's difficult question, but if I could sum up the number of all places I've been per this 30 days (month) maybe got 1-2 obvious stares that I've noticed as I remember...

    2) How often does someone of the opposite sex approach you? (this includes any verbal exchange such as cold approaches and cat-calling) (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)

    - I've got 2 catcalls this year. Mostly I get approached when I'm on court playing basketball, usually they are joining me for play (2-3 times per month), but if I hang out in city or am in my uni, I don't get approached at all (never happend or can't remember).

    3) How often does someone of the opposite sex ask for your number? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)

    - Haven't happend in person in past years.

    4) How often does someone of the opposite sex ask you out on a date? (report in x times/week or /month or /year, whichever is most applicable)

    - Never have happend in person.

    5) What rating, of out 10, would you give youself? (I know, I know, this is the most flawed part because there's a huge bias in subjective self-reporting but there's no simple way around it. Please be as honest and realistic as possible)

    - Ok, honestly, because I feel positive about myself all the time, I always feel like 8 (but I can't predict how I look in majority of others people eyes).

  • 1) Quite often. I'm thinking they aren't checking me out, more like thinking "wtf is she wearing?"

    3) Nevet, just recently got one of my guy friends number a week ago.

    4) I've never been asked out in real life.

    5) I would give myself a 2 or 3

  • My experience may be biased since I have school as an exposure otherwise I don't get out much to interact with men. I've been getting more male attention now that I'm in college compared to high school.
    Plus I dress down for school and occasionally get dolled up which changes how men react but anyways I love questions like this!!
    I recently tried online dating but I'll exclude those in my results.

    1) Many times whenever I go out
    but I can't tell if they're attracted. Some guys stare without smiling others look away when I catch them looking. Mostly guys I hardly know look. In my classes guys look then quickly turn their heads when I look back. A few were bold enough to look back and challenge me with staring.

    2) 15+
    In this past year I think... I don't really remember unless I actually had a full conversation. There's been a few that went up to me and complimented me and that's it but I don't know if that counts. Plus there's old creepy men but I don't count that

    3) About 12
    Majority of them ask but I don't give my number out freely anymore.

    4) 0
    Out of all the guys I talk to they just 'suggest' hanging out or hint. They don't legitimately ask me out unless there's an excuse or cover up of studying

    5). I don't do the number scale to me it's unattractive, average, or attractive. I suffer from self esteem issues and confidence... On a good day I say I'm attractive others I'm average.

  • I usually on do things like when this when giftcards or free food is involved, but... I would love to give you some information.
    1. average-once a week-honestly, it depends on what I'm wearing... I could get looked at multiple times a day in the right outfit or never if it's a sweat pants and bun week (#lazycollegelife)
    2. 5 times a year
    3. twice a year
    4. twice a year
    5. I'm a 7 on a good day and a -50 on a bad day.

  • 1) Shit that's hard to keep track of... umm I don't know like 50-55/week?
    2) Mmm thank god I don't get any cat callin, I'd murder the guy, but I have a lot of guy friends so none.
    3) Aha, I'm the one that asks because I normally need them for school activities and such.
    4) 1- 2times a week? LOOOL I'm in high school with a bunch of guys who are either egotistical or shy af.
    5) mm Probably a 6? 7 maybe I'm crazy :P

  • 1) Three or four times a week, I will catch a guy looking at me.

    2) I get asked out about five times a year. Although, to be fair, I am married, and I wear a ring. That may dissuade some guys (although obviously it does nothing to deter the rest of them!)

    3) Hmmm... in the last year, maybe four times.

    4) Same, about four times.

    5) I am not sure, so I am going to go with a 7, maybe.

  • 1. 10 times a week? It happens more when I'm out with friends (or maybe my friends notice more than me)
    2. 0-3 times a week. (Depends on where I go I feel like for that said week.
    3. Maybe once a month?
    4. Maybe a couple times yearly. I make it obvious I'm not interested in dating.
    5. Maybe an 8. I'm happy with how I look.

  • 1: I'm not very observant, and my lifestyle doesn't provide many opportunities for Women to stare at me, that said I see it at intersection durring my commute from time to time, so I'll say 1-2 times a month

    2: I am never approached

    3: I've never had a girl ask for my number

    4: I've never had a girl ask me out

    5: 6/10, I'm slightly above average

  • 1) How often do you catch someone of the opposite sex looking at you?

    - This is very rare for me. :/. I would say once in a College semester I would get looked at by one, or two girls, and nothing else would really happen after College ends for the semester. :(.

    2) How often does someone of the opposite sex approach you?

    - Again same frequency every time. 😭. I am not seen in a romantic manner. ☹️. Usually women come to me for help, and never see me again afterwards so yeah there is my statement over here anyways for you. 😟.

    3) How often does someone of the opposite sex ask for your number?

    - Zero. 😰. I am not someone that ever gets a girls number. 😨.

    4) How often does someone of the opposite sex ask you out on a date?

    - Zero. 😂. Once again this guy here is Forever Alone since I am not wanted actually. 😅.

    5) What rating, of out 10, would you give yourself?

    - Zero. 😤. If I looked good I would be dating by now so yeah there is my two cents again for you so. 😭.

  • 1- Almost never. Sometimes I think I do, but I'm not sure. So, I can say that I rarely catch girls doing it.

    2- I talk to girls a lot, but I can't identify these conversations as approaching. I don't ignore the possibility that some of these convos can be a way of them approaching either (according to the way some convos go), so I say again that it rarely happens.

    3- Never

    4- Never

    5- Maybe 5 or less...

  • 1) Never, but I don't really care that much about what other people do, so my perception may not adequately reflect reality.
    2) Hasn't happened yet, so I'd say about 0 times/lifetime
    3) Again, never happened
    4) Are you starting to see a pattern here or is it just me?
    5) 3/10, probably.

  • 1) Probably like never in a week, and if they do its probably not in a good way.
    2) Never have I been approached by someone.
    3) Never has anyone come up to me and asked me for my number either.
    4) Never been asked on a date.
    5) Of say like 5 max maybe, I'm not even sure. Probably not even that.

    There's probably not much point in using my answers as they are useless.

  • 1) Hard to say. Maybe once or twice a week.

    2) If you exclude greetings, never, I guess. There is still the chance that a few of the greetings are some sort of 'covered flirts'. But I'm pretty bad at detecting those things. If you include those potential flirts, maybe once a week.

    3) Over the last five years only twice.

    4) I've been asked out two times, a few years ago. Since then, never. Always me asking.

    5) I can't rate myself but I sure I'm around average so let's say 5/10

  • 1) Hard to say why they were looking at me. I assume they're looking at me because well... eye contact is normal. What separates it from a dude glancing at me or a dog? or a child? I can't tell.
    2-4) 0x. I don't go out much, there's not much contact with the opposite sex going on at all.
    5)5.2

    • Im also pretty shocked by the girls answers. If they don't even get approached, it's no surprise guys never get approached either. I'm pretty sure it has to do with how open and approachable you look, not your actual beauty.

  • 1
    at least 3 times a day, majorly from this one girl

    2
    0 times per wek lol

    3

  • 1) I have no idea but I'm sure it's a very low number.
    2) probably once in my life and they probably did it as a date by their friends and they were probably like 4 years younger than me.
    3) no girl has asked for my number in my life.
    4) not one girl had ever asked me on a date.
    5) I would guess I'm between a 5 or 6 out of 10
