I believe that it is a matter of perception, I consider myself to be about a 7 on a good day, maybe a 5 right after I get off of work ( nothing like good old manual labor to keep you humble) My girlfriend says I am about a 10 But she loves me and we all know that love is (thankfully) blind. If I believed in "leagues" I would not be with her, she is beautiful, successful, popular, but has a very powerful " I am better than you in every way". . . Aura I guess you would say. Not the type of girl you would expect to see with a Tall, Hairy, Overweight, Muscle bound hillbilly (Thanks me by the way) Here's my point If you timidly approach a woman or a man with the mindset that they are too hot or too smart or "out of your league" Then half of the battle is already lost, (just a figure of speech, don't try to fight them)
Yeah, so many times! In the past, whenever I spotted a really attractive women, I would always think "She's so good, she'd be taken anyway. Even if not, she'll surely reject me because she'd rather choose a guy in her league".
As I'm getting more confident and comfortable with my own looks, I have begun to think that leagues may not exist!
The term is definitely real, but i have never liked someone who's out of my leage. I mean, of course there were people i was attracted to, but i didn't let it go to the "liking" stage. I'm usually pretty much aware of myself.
Absolutely. And by the way those couples that are mismatched (she's a 10 he's a 4) are called outliers, meaning they don't occur enough to ruin the main thesis that people date within 1-2 points, as borne out by PlentyOfFish dating data that they were hoping would disprove it, but sadly didn't.
Heck yeah dude. My wife is way out of my league. I still don't know how I got this lucky; she's a 9.5 and I'm like maybe a 5.
Yeah kinda like you wouldn't see a horrible unhygenic women dating a super hot guy. You can see an hot women dating an unhygenic ugly guy because he's rich tho. Leauges are kinda real not set in stone but realish
Yea I'm a typical 7/10 in looks who is decent financially and has an ok social life. A guy who is rich, good looking and well known/popular is out of my league realistically Bc he could date 10s. However I am out of the league of a guy who is ugly, broke and ratchet because I could do better and he couldn't realistically expect to pull me.
