Limerick Men Are The Ugliest In The World, According To This Dating Site

We've done it again.

Irish men have been given the dubious distinction of being the ugliest in the world, according to the odious-sounding but highly popular

The site, which has more than five million members, accepts only those who meet a certain 'standard' of attractiveness – and in the last year, fewer than one in 10 of the Irish men who applied were accepted.

This made us the lowest-ranked nation in the world. But the data didn't stop doling out the insults there.


While Dubliners were able at least boast the highest acceptance rate within the country, the site further twisted the knife for others by announcing that Limerick was the lowest-ranked city here.

Ouch. But look – help is at hand.

Site founder Greg Hodge said what perhaps many of us already knew, and said Irish men could fare better if they made more effort with their profile pictures.

"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."

But let's think about this a little further.

While five million isn't a bad sample size, do we really want our standards set by the type of person who looks for love on a site called ''?

Nope. Thought not.

As you were, folks.
