It seems to me like all girls think they can get really attractive guys. I see unattractive and fat girls lust after built and muscular guys all the time, and while fat guys do likewise with hot girls, no fat guy believes he's ever going to actually be able to get the hot girl of his dreams. Many unattractive girls do seem to believe this, though. That's why so many girls are single. It's not that they can't get a guy, they just can't get the ultra hot guys they really want, so they abstain altogether.
Well I think women lust over attractive men just as much as men do over beautiful women. I don’t think it’s a gender issue, but more of a personality/attitude/confidence issue. As a girl who is average looking, I can say that I am attracted to beautiful people, but I never make illusions or assume that the persons I am attracted to will actually notice me and give me a chance. I know better than that. Now I can’t say that every woman is like me (without an ounce of confidence) but I can say that I have seen lesser attractive women and men with impossibly high standards.
I am really hoping that you don't think thats why girls are single. The majority of the girls I know who are single, me included, simply have no interest in being in a relationship right now. I have so many things that I need to be focused on that I am not trying to be tied down, not that you can't accomplish things in a relationship it just really seems to be harder. That doesn't mean I don't sometimes crave attention from the opposite sex, and in that case if its just a hook up then yes I want them hot. Why? Because its just fun so I might as well enjoy what I am looking at. Anyways, girls are not single because they refuse to settle.
I also have a lot of friends in relationships or who want to be in relationships and I can tell you the majority of their boyfriends aren't 10s. Also girls that want to be in a relationship usual will date whoever comes their way. Sad but true. Guys do it to.
Lastly, what is so wrong with a girl having confidence? Why are you trying to push that down and tell girls that they shouldn't feel good about themselves. Most of those girls don't feel good about themselves and so they project confidence in the hopes to gain it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
All in all your post is simply you trying to bash girls who you deem unattractive and telling them that they aren't good enough for a hot guy, when in fact that hot guy might not be good enough for them. Its not all about looks and it is shallow to assume that all people feel the same way as you.
No, I actually think your statement is more true for guys than it is for girls.
Girls or women, generally, are far more critical and harsh about their own physical attractiveness than men are (many even underrate themselves.) Therefore, talking in general terms here, women tend to be much more realistic about which men they can obtain, and tend to act accordingly. I don't think that's the same for a lot of guys; a lot of them tend to believe that if they project the right false confidence, or if they are a 'nice guy', they are therefore entitled to the 'hottest girl in the room.'
Of course, these stereotypes don't apply to everyone, but it's just something I've noticed.
I don't think I can get a really attractive guy, despite being fairly attractive myself. I actually don't want a really attractive guy either. I prefer someone more down to earth and real... Not saying that all attractive guys are shallow, but a guy investing that much effort into looks gives an indication of where his priorities lie... It's not too masculine in my opinion.
