OkCupid is separating you into groups. Of hot and ugly people that is. According to the email sent out by the site:
We are very pleased to report that you are in the top half of OkCupid's most attractive users. The scales recently tipped in your favor, and we thought you'd like to know...
Your new elite status comes with one important privilege:
You will now see more attractive people in your match results.
This new status won't affect your actual match percentages, which are still based purely on your answers and desired match's answers. But the people we recommend will be more attractive. Also! You'll be shown to more attractive people in their match results.
Don't be surprised. This isn't the first time a dating company has tried to separate / filter fatties and uglies. OkCupid just insists that you'll still be matched according to what you are looking for. On the inside. As long as you're also on par on the outside. Sounds..fair I suppose.
