Dating with bad teeth

Like having good teeth!

I guess that's one that most of us have subconsciously cared about for years, but it's sorta wild that all of a sudden it's a big deal. From a Darwinian perspective, good teeth are a real indication of your health -- how much you drink, smoke, what you're eating.

Darren's 'bad teeth' profile only had two matches over the course of one week, while his 'good teeth' profile received just 19 matches. The only difference was that one account featured the prospective dater with discoloured and missing teeth right ; and the matching profile had perfect teeth left.
