Why do some guys downgrade?
had a one year relationship with the guy and he disappears for weeks and moves on with another girl not to sound conceited but I thought that I was everything he wanted looks wise and personality but his new girl has nothing on me I feel like I'm way more beautiful, have a better body and teeth. I'm not saying all of this to make me feel better but I've seen this happen quite a lot, why?

A person can be hideous to one but beautiful to another. He obviousely likes her enough to look past her flaws. We don't decide who we are attracted to, the chemicals in our brain does.
That's why it pisses me off when I hear one person tell another they can do better, & most of us have heard that remark. Who are they to say on what another finds attractive or not.
One of three things:
1. She had qualities other than looks he liked better
2. You weren't seeing correctly. Perhaps out of bias.
3. Sometimes guys will "downgrade" after a girl who they feel was the source of a lot of drama because you start to get the idea that those things (the looks, the style, the attitude) are all the sign of a high maintenance, and thus, high drama girl. So you become willing to sacrifice it to find a girl who won't give you drama.

Everyone has their own tastes in other people and just because they are with someone who looks or acts a certain way doesn't mean that they aren't attracted or willing to try someone who is different. It should really only matter to him. if he is happy and he likes her then that's why he is with her.
