Will you date someone who is a downgrade?

Updates:
Downgrade from your exe?
Please don't think it's a rude question... downgrade could also mean... less nicer, less morally upright.. less intelligent... less funnier... etc

  • The person who moves on to date another person don't view the new partner as a downgrade. Just different. It's the ex that looks at the new person as a downgrade. Just have to keep that in mind. That usually only happens with a rebound. But if it's a new relationship the next girl is usually a good catch.

    I've had a rebound that wasn't on par with my ex, but it was a hookup not a new relationship. My next girlfriend was way better than my ex. My ex taught me what I don't want in a relationship.

  • I would have a a hard time getting seriously involved with someone who wasn't at least as good for me as any of my past relationships were. I don't care about looks and money so much (I just need to be attracted to them and I'd prefer if they wwere as financially stable as I am), but I DO care about how good the g are for me on a mental/emotional level.

    It would be hard for me to feel like I was with someone who I wanted to stay with if they didn't make me at least as happy as someone I've had before. I'd always feel like I was waiting for someone better to come along, and that wouldn't be fair to anyone, so I just wouldn't date someone who couldn't make me at least as happy as an ex did.

  • Viewing someone as a "downgrade" implies an attitude that would make you undesirable as a partner.

    • I really don't care about a partner, its just a brutal question

    • Show All
    • No, this question has nothing to do with., I just want to see what people would answer

    • If I pass those sort of judgment on people, every woman is a downgrade from me on at least one dimension. Woman A may be a really hot looking lady but only have 2/3 of my IQ score. Woman B may have a higher IQ than me but have no financial resources of her own. Woman C may be hot looking, extremely intelligent, and have money, but have lower moral standards.

      So, yes, every woman I have dated has been a downgrade when judged on some particular dimension, but hey have also been upgrades on other dimensions.

  • What's a "downgrade"?

    Financially? I don't care how much she makes as long as she is fiscally responsible.

    Looks? As compared to what?

    She uses an iPhone and I am an Android guy?

    • Downgrade from an Ex? How would that be? if it's an Ex it means I didn't want her. I have dated "different" than my Ex. One Ex was a decent looking, no make up, outdoorsy tri-athlete type A... next girl was a lazy type B make up and high heels smoking hot girl.

      Nothing is ever a downgrade, just a lateral move with some variances

  • What is a downgrade? Like... doesn't cook me bacon or what?

  • Well personally I think that you would be a perfect girl for me. The less mice you are means when I manage to get a cheeky smile from you, it means we have a strong bond. The less intelligent means I could help you to achieve your dreams and for you to be less funny would mean that when you do crack a joke, we would laugh and make it special

  • No, the reason i have an ex is to find someone better personality wise, more commen interests etc, if you're downgrading and you know this, then why do you bother?

  • I doubt any women on earth that I haven't dated could be a downgrade of my exes, they really are the epitome of dog shit.

  • I have qualities that I'd pretty much require to be true in anyone I date. To be with someone who's very empathetic, very personable, able to carry intelligent conversation, good morals, etc.. So anyone I date would have to fulfill those.

    Whether or not they manage that better or worse in comparison to how my ex did is irrelevant.

  • It's best not to think of it that way. People are people.
    Some have talents in one area, others in another. It's more about compatibility than anything else.

    I would, but I wouldn't see it as a downgrade. xD

    • Got it!

      I think for the most part if I'm dating someone new it's probably because I think they are better than my ex.

  • Let me tell you something. Even if that person is a down grade in the l
