Have you ever liked someone who wasn't "Your type"?

Basically this has happened to me, so I'm just kinda curious as to how many other people this has happened too.
And I know that like a lot of people have a sort of "specific" type of guy or girl they tend to date or like. For me, I'm a pretty traditional girl, and I tend to go for the "protective back woods, country boy" type.
But recently I just can't get my mind off a dude whose nothing like what I usually go after. He is a country boy, but instead of like fishing, he prefers to learn about computers, things like that.

Anyway, poll time, who else has this happened too?

  • I dated a lot of women who weren't my type initially except I found their face pretty. I used to be a face guy but was more into big boobs and slim waist.

    Over the years I now like slim waist, small boobs -- go figure, but it changed because I grew so fond of some girls who originally weren't "my type". My "type" back then was mostly bullshit -- it was based on inexperience and just being saturated by images of women without actually dating any.

    The one thing I found out the hard way is that I don't like chubby girls for sure. I did try to keep an open mind there but no thanks. I like slim and fit. But I even came to like black women, Hispanic women, Caucasian women, Asian women, etc. -- practically all ethnicities. I did not like them all originally, but through dating some of them, I kept expanding and expanding what I actually liked.

    The only thing that narrowed is that I like small boobs and slim girls who are my age or younger. I'm not into older girls and not into chubby girls. That's about it. I learned what I didn't like for sure, but I kept being pleasantly surprised over the years about what I actually liked.

      It's like trying food. You can't say in advance what type of food you like expect to list what foods you've tried and managed to like. Since that's a near-infinite variety of food out there, you'll never know. But you can come to figure out more easily what you absolutely hate (food that is too spicy, for example).

      And that's what I learned. I just mostly learned what I don't like. Don't like chubby women and older women. Personality-wise, I don't like girls who just sit around all day missing me all the time without anything of their own to do. That's about it. Otherwise all kinds of girls could still interest me -- I don't know until I date them.

  • I don't really know my type per se, but I've got a lot of guy friends who are mountain bikers (the ones I hang around with are definitely a certain type of person) and I vowed that I'd never like one, although I ended up having a massive crush on one :P

  • Yes I was crazy for about 2 years over a girl that at first glance I didn't find her attractive, but seemed like one day I just woke up and wanted to know her more. Despite her dropping me as a friend, I don't think I ever got over her. Maybe one day

  • I personally don't believe in having a type. When feelings are there they are there and there's nothing you can do to control who you are attracted to. If you like this guy go for it and see where it takes you.

      Well I do flirt with him relentlessly, But it's kinda complicated as to why I can't just "Go for it". He's a co-worker, and he's 6 years older than myself (me being 18, him being 24), so I'm still trying to sort of work out how he see's me, as for the most part I'm like the child at work because I'm both the youngest and one of the shortest there, and I don't wanna like make him feel weird or awkward if he see's me as a kid like most everyone else, you know?

  • I've boned some really ugly women. Definitely not my type.

  • The only two people I have ever dated weren't my type at all haha. For me, I can only be attracted to someone after meeting them. I could think their butt ugly in pictures but attractive in person or vice versa, I think it has something to do with the vibe they put off and their unique quirks and facial expressions.

  • This has happened to me a LOT. It makes me think that maybe the only "type" I like is a human with a penis.

    Never thought I'd date a black man--I did
    Never thought I'd ever be attracted to an Asian guy---I totally was
    Never thought I'd like a nerdy guy--sure did at one time

    And the list goes on. You get what I mean.

  • My boyfriend is actually not traditionally my type. I usually fall for alt guys. We like the same music, dress pretty similar, and tend to like similar things. However, this dork is square as can be, and REALLY likes female empowerment music and hate alt music. He also dresses incredibly preppy, and likes horror movies, which I can't stand (superhero movies I like) but I love him regardless

  • Yes! Currently going insane for a guy I would NEVER even look at! My type is usually blonde with blue eyes or something. But my crush is bald, has green eyes and is Spanish... I've never been more annoyed.

      Oh I'm not sorry, it's just different, but I mean I get so happy when I see him, so isn't that what matters?

    • 3mo

      It does, but only if they feel the same way.

  • My ex wasn't my type but our relationship lasted 3 years and a quarter. XD sure when you start loving someone, they become your ideal person.

  • I'm honestly not sure if I have. I go for the more "pretty boy" type of guy. Since to me they seem to have more stereotypically the type of facial features I find attractive on guys. Now that I think of it I actually had a crush on a friend before we became friends and he was not a pretty boy, he was adventurous and daring and just a cool guy to be around.
