Say someone was making advances at you and you could clearly tell that they're interested. Would you reject them even if you found them interesting if you felt like they were too good looking or something? Would insecurity stop you from chasing after a good thing?
Yes because I'd always feel inferior. I desire balance.
To be honest I would because I would be insecure about other attractive women around him and what his friends might say like, "You could do better, bro." Which is strange because I couldn't care if someone was "unattractive" and wanted to date me. I guess it's like a demon in the back of my head saying, "You can do better than me bro. Why even settle for a dumpling?"
This is purely on appearance though. If someone had a better personality I am all for that, because that is something I feel a constant need to become a better person and good people inspire me to do better things.
Yes actually, there's only one girl that I've ever felt like that about and she's one of my closest friends. I started imagining us being romantically involved after she started dropping hints that she was interested in something more and I realized that I would never want a relationship with her because I know she's so much better than me that if we ever did get into a relationship she would eventually leave me and I love her too much as a person and a friend to ever risk not having her in my life.
Nah. I don't believe in someone being 'too good' for the other, or being out of your league.
If they were really attractive, super popular or something, I might approach them being more guarded because for some reason I'd think that more is at stake to be lost with them than someone more nerdy. Which is a ridiculous idea if you think about it.. we all bleed the same.
I wouldn't say it's a 'great opportunity', that makes it sound like you're taking advantage of them without even liking them. I would date whoever I really liked and who liked me back. I don't see how having an attractive (or anything else that's good) partner is a bad thing that would make you NOT like them?
