( This question was posted on another forum; These words are not mine but whether I like it or not I am currently living this very scenario and would appreciate any additional feedback to better understand. )
" Its a shame. I know some girls who are considered very "pretty" with good hearts, guys always give them attention and are considered "it girls" - every girl wants to be like them, every guy wants to date them. These girls don't care about looks but rather to be treated right with love and respect.
I know of some STUPID STUPID guys who missed their chances and purposely get away fr. the girl to go for even uglier girls ("ugly" meaning INSIDE and out). One of my good guy friends had a thing for his girl friend for years. She was a very sweet, non high maintinence girl. She was smart, classy, and very beautiful. She fell for him and it freaked him out. She fell for him so deep she was ready to be loyal and in a relationship w. him... he ended up hurting her real bad and going for a girl who just turned 18 (she was in her 20's like him) and wasn't in the same league as his girl friend.
I'm not hating... just curious... is there a psychological reason behind it? "

"Why do insecure guys date ugly girls?"
Because they're insecure. They don't feel like they are good enough or deserve somebody who seems awesome because they feel like they are shit. It's also safer because they feel like someone uglier is not going to have as many other choices.
PS - insecure girls do this too3
