Maybe some attractive girls choose to go with guys who are not 'equivalent' to them in terms of physical appearance because more average looking guys are able to see through her beauty easier, and appreciate who she is as a person more than just someone physically stunning. Once the girl sees that a guy, regardless of his appearance, is capable of treating her like a normal human being, I'm sure she'd find that to be quite endearing.
i dont see myself as a 9 and above, but my answer is that it depends on the woman's intention. illl say that any woman who thinks this way is quite narcissistic and considers her own partner someone to compete with. its pretty stupid haha since looks fade.
as for me, in my experience, looks alone have never been what draws me to someone. i dont see myself as someone that needs to 'outshine' my partner.
guys just dont realize that personality is (almost) everything. the fat and old dude, its for money. but for exhibit D, even though he is nott the stereotypical definition of attractive, howard stern is really funny and quirky in a good way. i wouldn't choose a guy like that if it was all about looks, but i would give him a chance if i was his age and we met because we prefer a decent looking guy with an amazing personality, over an amazing looking guy with a decent personality.
I literally just read an scientific article and it says women prefer men who are slightly more attractive than them. They're less likely to cheat and are way more open about their relationship than with a less attractive man.
Ok so first off, I don't think you should compare Hollywood stars' lives with real life. While, clearly, that is real life to those extraordinary rich people, it's not the average lifestyle. No, I don't think MOST women seek out men who are unattractive. I think that some women who are more attractive than their spouse/significant other may have fallen in love with them. However, I won't be naive and say that they all are in love. Sometimes, some people do marry or date people less attractive than themselves for different reasons than love, whether it's money, power, fame, etc. When it all boils down to it, every person is different. I personally wouldn't marry or date for reasons like I stated above but yes, some women would.
I go by how that person makes me feel. chemistry. And how we bounce off each other. By then if someone else might think they aren't good looking. I already do because we had a connection and that's all that matters in my eyes!
I don't know exactly what my number would be, but I have a problem with men only wanting to treat me like a sex object. They go on about my "great body," "really pretty face," etc. Then it's all about skills with physical intimacy. So, I am always seeking someone with something else to offer me besides being physically coveted. I can handle him being less physically attractive if he's good at conversing, funny, treats me really well, or has a lot to offer in terms of quality of life. I try not to let that last one matter much because I can care for myself and want to earn what I have... Yet, it doesn't hurt.
I am not claiming to be a 10 or anything but i go for guys whose personality I find attractive. Some of them might look below average but I still think their awsome personality and the fact that they love me despite my shortcomings makes up for their less than perfect looks. Besides I am a very possessive person and if he's a tad below average I know that a lot of girls won't go after him and he'll never be thinking he could have done better so he is all mine. In other words yea I am possessive and jealous.
