Site names its most superficial cities for online dating
Spoiler alert: L.A. made the list, but it didn’t come out on top.
What's America’s most superficial city? According to a study from Men’s Health, it’s Tampa, Fla. Plano, Texas, and Atlanta also made the list.
And, sorry, Salt Lake City, but apparently, when it comes to online dating, you’re incredibly shallow, too. At least that’s the claim of another study from WhatsYourPrice.com.

To back up its list, Men’s Health studied a variety of data. It looked at each city’s rates for cosmetic procedures and Botox. It also studied how much money city-dwellers pay to look younger and better. It looked at sales for hair dyes, teeth whiteners and tanning salons. With the help of data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Experian Marketing Services and Foursquare, the mag was able to name Tampa as the most vain metropolis in the United States. Stereotypically shallow Los Angeles didn’t even make the top 10.

Los Angeles did, however, make the list at WhatsYourPrice.com. The dating site analyzed the habits of thousands of its users and found that, on average, Los Angelenos only take 10.4 seconds to browse an online profile before making a dating decision. But Salt Lake City natives take even less time to accept or reject a date — 7.2 seconds. Portland, Ore., and Houston also made the list.
