If you’re an expert in profile surfing like I am, you’ve probably ran across the letters HWP. They stand for “height-weight proportionate”. Now don’t ask me what the fuck that actually means because if you take height and weight, it all comes out to a proportion. It’s funny too because the guys that are looking for HWP and describe themselves as HWP, are just “average” looking guys. I’m going to assume they actually mean that HWP is actually the Golden Ratio.
The Golden Ratio is the number 1.6180339887… or symbolized by Φ, but when applied effectively it’s supposed to be aesthetically pleasing. There are ways to bend the golden ratio to make most things fit it, just as people can find Jesus in potato chips. So maybe they mean you take height multiplied by the Golden Ratio, and you get their weight?
Let’s try it for a 6 ft (72 inches) man:
72 inches * 1.618 = 116.498 lbs.
I’m sorry, but if you’re 6ft tall and you weigh 116.5 lbs. You better fucking eat burgers with fries and wash it down with a glass of oil. I’m hoping they have a different way of calculating it.
My Golden Ratio for men comes out to actually be at least 2.75 (roughly). And this is not an exact science, nor does it mean that if you fall into this ratio, I will find you attractive. For me the Golden Ratio is actually a minimum.
So, for another 6 ft man:
72 inches * 2.75 = 198 lbs
That is much closer to my type of man, but that’s more of the minimum for me. It helps a lot when I’m looking at profiles. A guy may look decent in his pics, only because he’s only showing like 10% of his body, but that doesn’t mean he’s my type. I’ll look at his stats and he’ll be 6’2 and weigh 165 lbs. Once I see that, I move on to the next guy.
I’ve found this ratio is pretty accurate for me when I don’t have many pictures especially. There are exceptions, but when I’m super horny and not thinking clearly… it can help me from doing someone I’ll quickly regret.
