I don't think he is but everyone has their own opinion. I wouldn't ignore this if I were you. Physical attraction is important to. You need both physical and emotional. Be friends if you want but don't lead him on, tell him that's your only interest and there's nothing romantic between you. I seen a post here the other day from a married woman that liked her husband but never ever found him attractive but married him anyway because he was a good guy and "thought she'd become attracted to him" I couldn't believe this? Really? And now she wants to leave him because she thinks he's ugly and hates being with him now. Poor guy. Don't do this!!
Are you interested in going out with a guy and having a good time and enjoying yourself or are you concerned about what other people think. Are you so self-centered that you will not enjoy yourself because you wouldn't be cool? You are 28 years old you sound like an 18-year-old girl. Haven't you outgrown that crap?
pedro :) seriously u dont like DONT GO ON A FUCKING DATE!!! DONT!
and dont listen to others, if u dont want to have sex with someone how can u want to get to know them? u said u are having fun but u are already pointing out that its a constant thing in ur head thats bothering u... u think thats going to go away? ill tell u it won't, i know :( sadly. if u think someone is going to bother u chemistry wise its best to just not start anything, even if u do get along, as "appearance fades" theirs will fade faster than urs anyway, so what u dislike is going to get a shit ton worse. while personality is staying the same. something u might "like" is not supported nightmare looks pulling down liked to i dont know thumb down emote or something lol. u get the picture.
to me your a little shallow. to me he isn't that bad to me he is average. here is what i think about it looks get old personality is for a life time. what i mean by that is as people get older looks fade but the personality is what will hold them together.
he ain't a bad looking dude... he has a bad hairstyle... at the end of the day if you ain't sexually attracted to him even a little bit the chances are somewhere down the line... another guy will floor you and you will most likely pursue him and break this guys heart.
so if in doubt dont take it any further than friendly chat because in the long run, he will be hurt more once he grows to like you more than getting rejected at the start...
but i still stand by if he got a better haircut with a quiff and short sides he will become a good bit more attractive as it is holding him back in that picture.
Im not a girl but why do you care what he looks like. Are you a supermodel? do you have no flaws? go out for coffee get to know him and if your not attracted to him after getting too know each other than fine but to me it is a stupid reason to say no. Sorry if this is insulting.
Wow if he is ugly then I must be a 1 you have some pretty high standards just telll him your not attracted to him I don't understand why would women feel like they have to lie and how lying spares feelings cause it doesn't.
Just go on the date... you are obviously intrigued by the guy so who cares is he is conventionally good looking or not? If you have great chemistry you may just begin to find him attractive anyways. If not, nothing lost by going on a date or two...
Go out and have fun. You never know.. you may see past looks. Every one always asked me why I was with my last boyfriend because they always said I was way better looking than him and I would always say... its because he makes me laugh all the time and makes me feel good. We were together for years, but he moved away for a job after college.
He isn't ugly. He isn't super hot. Attraction isn't always about looks. Sometimes it isn't about looks at all. It's who makes you smile and laugh. Who makes your heart beat faster when you see them. If you can't get over the way he looks because you're shallow, and superficial then don't give the poor guy false hope. And by the way - no one's perfect not even you!
Honestly he's not that bad looking its the hair he needs a different style, and you never know maybe you would like him and would hit things off really well.
I've been there, sometimes attraction can grow! Don't count that out, but if you reeaaally aren't attracted to him and don't think you ever could be then you probably shouldn't go out with him. Sounds to me like you do want to try though, just one date wouldn't hurt anyone I shouldn't think! And like I said, don't rule out the chance that he might become more attractive to you the more you get to know him and like him
maybe just be friends? I've learned that if there is no attraction, it doesn't work well. You could try, you could fall or him in the long run.
