Some toxic nonsense dating side has decided that the proud men of Limerick are the ugliest men in the world.
The website in question is beautifulpeople.com, a dating site that only allows people of a certain level of attractiveness to use their services. It uses your Facebook profile photo to make this highly scientific, bullshit assessment. How they can see through the plastic bags on their heads is another thing entirely!
It's not just Limerick, though; Ireland as a whole ranked last in the world alongside the UK and Poland, according to the site's data. In case you're wondering how you could satisfy the entry requirements of this so-called dating site, their founder Greg Hodge has provided us with some insights...
A topless selfie shot in a seedy room or an image of them at the pub, pint in hand, does not go down well with women. Men are not just selling themselves, they are selling a lifestyle. A polished image showing an interesting lifestyle would greatly improve their acceptance rates.
Cheers, Greg. We'll take that on board.
Or not! Sorry but the city that has given us The Cranberries, Paul O'Connell and the one and only Michael D Higgins doesn't have to raise itself to anyone's standards.
Stay beautiful, Limerick!
