It seems like very good looking people don't usually date other very good looking people. Not to say that beautiful people date ugly people but just people are a clearly below their league.
I know the above statement sounds incredibly shallow and obviously people are attracted to personality's and beauty is highly subjective. But generally people in relationships are around the same level of attractive. But this isn't the case for physically very beautiful people. It seems like a beautiful girl is often with a good looking but average guy and a great looking guy is always with a pretty but plain girl.
Why do you think this is? As I said I know personality and personal taste obviously play a huge role, but even considering that there seems to be a big contrast between their looks.
Why do you think this is? The more details the better!! Thanks in advance :)
Most Helpful Girl
I think I'm a beautiful girl, and I can support that because most guys I've dated were average looking. I've gone to dates where the guy was just as attractive as myself, but I never seemed to be interested in him. That doesn't mean that he was a jerk or anything, some of them were genuinely nice guys but I just never saw a second date coming.
I must say, this is one hell of a good question because I never really thought about it much. I think that when you date an average looking guy, when personality and personal taste is not into the equation, things are easier. Most average looking guys don't only like you for your looks, they like you even more for your personality. Now from my experience, most attractive guys I went out with regarded me as a trophy girlfriend: someone they could hold and show off to their friends. That didn't mean that he liked me any less, but the entire purpose of the relationship was messed up.
It might sound selfish, but I feel more comfortable with someone who isn't as good looking as David Beckham because just try to imagine how hard it would be to compete with that? By now means am I intending to say that a relationship is a competition between looks. I'm simply saying that it isn't easy to have a great self-esteem when you constantly have to think that he might dump you because you're not pretty/nice/funny/etc. enough. And that's a reality. I've had countless friends who were attractive and had even more attractive boyfriends, and in their relationships it was all about appearances. Two of them had never allowed their boyfriends to see them without makeup. I mean, how twisted is that?
But that's my take in it. I'm curious to read the other responses! Great question, once again!1
