SANDUSKY

Ladies, you are H-O-T.

A networking and dating Web site surveyed local men who ranked Sandusky area women to be more beautiful than ladies in other communities.

Steve Capoccia, spokesman for Mate1.com, said 1,488 local men are registered on the site and 421 Sandusky area women are members of the dating service.

Of those women, 275 were rated "good-looking," he said. That's about 65 percent of Sandusky area women registered on the site.

Bucyrus, Urbana and Washington were also included in the survey taken by local men. Bucyrus women received 119 "good-looking" nods out of the 332 members, or 36 percent; Urbana women received 78 nods out of 213, or 37 percent; and Washington women received 68 out of 195 nods, or 35 percent.

The survey was conducted April 30, Capoccia said.

On the flip side, only 111 Sandusky area men out of the 1,488 registered on the Web site were voted as good looking.

Started by a father and daughter team in 2003, Mate1.com has about 15 million members.
