One cannot possibly determine dating potential in only 7.2 seconds. Evidently, superficial factors such as looks and income influence attraction when Salt Lake City members browse profiles.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) May 10, 2013
A relationship may last a lifetime, but the first impression only takes seconds to determine—that is, in the online dating world.
WhatsYourPrice.com conducted a national study to determine which cities are quickest to judge dating potential. Utilizing Google Analytics, WhatsYourPrice.com discovered that it only takes 7.2 for Salt Lake City natives to decide whether to contact or dismiss the opposite sex.
The website also polled a sample of 853 Salt Lake City-based members (500 males and 353 females) and asked to rank which of the 20 total qualities in an online dating profile they valued most when browsing. Salt Lake City’s top five determining factors (in order of importance) were Profile Picture, Occupation, Income, Body Type, and Age.
“Salt Lake City members clearly value physical appearance above all other profile information,” says Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of WhatsYourPrice.com. “One cannot possibly determine dating potential in only 7.2 seconds. Evidently, superficial factors such as looks and income influence attraction when Salt Lake City members browse profiles.”
The 10 Most Superficial Cities in America (According to Avg. Browsing Time)
1.) Salt Lake City, UT – 7.2
2.) Portland, OR – 7.7 Seconds
3.) Houston, TX – 8.3 Seconds
4.) Chicago, IL – 8.6 Seconds
5.) Washington, D.C. – 9.8 Seconds
6.) Los Angeles, CA – 10.4 Seconds
7.) Louisville, KY – 11.5 Seconds
8.) Miami, FL – 12.1 Seconds

Salt Lake City’s survey results indicate a strong preference for attractive, wealthy individuals. But according to Wade, WhatsYourPrice.com gives members the opportunity to date attractive members based on their generosity, thus evening out the “playing field” for the introverted or less attractive.
“Keep your profile simple, yet significant,” says Brandon Wade. “Online-daters have a short attention span, so your content should be clear and concise. Rather than share your life story, leave room for the imagination.”
