In the hopes that physical attraction may eventually develop.
Very nice man, but don't find him physically attractive at all.

One date. I can see keeping an open mind and going on a single date with someone, but that is the limit. Going on dates with people you normally wouldn't consider is good as it opens you up to new experiences, but if you don't feel a spark by the end of the first date then just move on. You will just be leading him on as he develops feelings. Women trying to give guys a chance beyond that, just make the guys feel used and lead on.0

I would honestly say you shouldn't go out with someone at all if you don't find them physically attractive. If you're thinking attraction will develop though and it hasn't happened after a few dates, I would say to move on. It's not fair to the other person. Everyone deserves to be with someone who finds them attractive.
So, if the attraction isn't there, then let him down gently and move on so you can find someone you are attracted to and he can find someone who genuinely likes and is attracted to him in return. Leading people on isn't cool (I'm not saying you're intentionally doing that, but the longer you stay with him knowing that you don't feel the same way, the worse it will be for him).1
