I'm always attracted to men that seem to me are "out of my league." But I can't help notice other couples and note that they compliment each other or are similar physically. Are the men who I always find attractive similar to me physically or am I vain?

No we don't go for people that look similar. What we go for is an attraction on an unconscious level. When you look at someome your brain can tell how good their genes are to an extent. Also, some people will have genes that compliment yours, where others don't. So it's not just about looking good, it's personal really. I think you also see people differently than others do: sometimes you'll see character or personality come through a person, so you're not just going on purely physical all the time. Maybe your problem is you don't think you're good enough and the lower confidence puts them off, or, maybe you go for people "out of your league" as a way of keeping safe from having to be in a relationship where you are open to being hurt.1
