I've always had trouble dating. I am shy and have a hard time opening up to men. A friend told me that I should date ugly men to get comfortable with dating and move up until I find someone I really like. I am just wondering if guys/girls have tried this with ugly people and found someone worth their time after getting that practice? Is it something I should try?
Thanks! :) All the help would be appreciated. I am 25 and have only had three boyfriends and the longest relationship was a year a half. So kind of pathetic... lol.

I am not a fan of this strategy. What if I said, I should only date insecure girls so I can use them until I find a proper long-term girlfriend who is perfect in every way. Going into a relationship with intentions to "trade up" will not make you happy, no more than it is respectful to the other person.
What you need to do is get to the bottom of why you are having a hard time opening up to men. Shy girls are more common than you may realize, I've dated a number of them and even wrote a very long article on the topic
