If you were the opposite gender, would you date your current self?

I'm a guy. If I were to try and imagine myself as a girl, I'd ask would I date my male self? In all honesty, I don't think I would due to not making much money and only having average looks. At some point, I might get a better job, which would make me more attractive to more girls.

But forget about me. If you're a guy, do you think if you magically changed into a girl, would you date your former male self? Ladies, if you became a man, would you be attracted to your new male alter ego if you stepped back into your female shoes?

  • Yes, I would date myself if I were the opposite gender.

Updates:
2 to one girls think they would date themselves. Only about 50 percent of the guys feel confident that they would be attractive enough to make it happen. What gives with the skewed stats? Are guys less confident than women these days?

  • My jaw dropped when I saw how conceited some people are! It's one thing to have self-confidence and assurance, but another to think you're God's gift to the earth. Damn, people, have some humility! Hahah, okay, now that that's off my chest...

    I think this is a great question. Very refreshing from the ordinary questions on GAG, so thank you.

    I think I'd date myself.. I'm a very stable person; no mood swings and I'm not a serial killer.. I'm very loving and thoughtful for not only my significant other but my friends and family as well. I'm not perfect, but my standards aren't very high either, so I think if I turned into a guy I would be okay with dating myself.

  • I wouldn't date myself. I have bad mood swings, I lose confidence in myself at the drop of a hat, and regardless of what I actually look like, I find myself plain. Not to say that I mope around all the time--I'm not constantly sad, but when I am, it's bad. I think I would find the rest of my personality attractive, but I wouldn't want to deal with the bouts of emotional problems.

    Then again, I do have a boyfriend who handles my mood swings really well and is very supportive when I'm hard on myself. Either I'm not nearly as bad as I think I am, or my boyfriend is just really tolerant. Or I'm not meant to date myself...

  • i think I'm confused...I interpreted your poll question as, if I were a guy tomorrow would I date a girl like I was yesterday...and I would. I don't know if I'd date a guy version of me. I mean... I can't really imagine what a guy version of me would be like. if he were to have my characteristics, I'd probably date him. But then wouldn't you just date the same person as you are, wouldn't that make things boring? I kind of look for someone who isn't too much like me.

    oh, I am so confused! >.<

  • Hell yes I would date myself! I'm freaking hot! Most girls that have my body haven't had any kids and I already have two kids and I'm still thin :) THANK GOD! I love my lips,my eyes,my style,my personality,my sense of humor and I have a huge heart! I'm a hard worker(although right now I'm jobless). But yes,I would most definitely date myself.

    • I think guy me would like girl me :)

      Just like girl me would like guy me

  • I would date myself because I'm physically attractive, but I would never think of being in a relationship with myself. Too complicated sometimes.

  • Haha I have actually thought about that before. Honestly because of my personality it wouldn't work out. My father and I have almost the same personality which causes us to fight all the time and I'm not close to him. Meaning I'm pretty sure the same thing would occur. I'm not saying I have a bad personality, its just that it seems that my personality doesn't go well with personalities that are similar.

  • I think I would. But I wouldn't have wanted to date a girl like who I was 5 years ago. I've changed a lot for the better, and I think I'm good enough to actually share myself with someone now (I don't mean that in an arrogant way).

  • I want to say yes but I don't know... They way we perceive ourselves can be different to how others perceive us. We might think we're sane but we can actually be crazy... I'm not crazy and I have table manners so why not. I like this question :)

    • How many guys have approached you? Do you just think they are ugly, that is, the ones who aren't jerks? Why aren't you attracted to them? If it isn't looks, what about their personality is driving you away from them?

    • Not ugly I just had no physical pull towards them. They are nice guys and I'm even friends with some of them but they know where I stand. Why lead someone on if I don't have that basic urge? A couple even have gfs now and I'm happy for them and glad that I was honest with them. I'm not often approached but I am stared at and given little smiles sometimes. Guys I meet are through friends usually.

  • this question kinda makes my head hurt. I have no idea..

    • Is it that hard to think outside the box? Or is the problem that you don't understand the differences between men and women well enough to classify them and consider all of those aspects while speculating?

    • it's that I'd like to think guys would be attracted to me but I don't actually know why anyone would like me so..

  • Well, no, I'm not my own type. Kinda. Maybe.. ? o.O

    • Do men want to date you? How's your love life been so far?

    • My love life isn't the best but I'm working on that. I did make a couple mistakes with the guy I was seeing a few months back...but that's OK since I did learn from that. With that said, many guys do approach me though they usually have ulterior motives. Now I do know how to avoid such guys.

  • to be honest, probably not.

    • i have a couple of issues I need to sort out for myself first

    • What issues would be so bad that a guy wouldn't want your current self? Have you thought that perhaps you're harder on yourself than a guy would be?

  • Great question. I can't imagine what I'd be like as a male, but yes my male self would date my female self. I wonder what Freud would say about this lol

  • Definitely. If I was somehow warped into the body of a female with the psychology of a female, I'd date the currently existing male version of me. I'd have to be attracted to dudes of course which is why this is difficult to imagine.

    But I think this is more a question of putting yourself in other people's shoes do you reckon you're quality dating material. And my answer is yes, I believe, from my experience that I most definitely am.

  • You're being kind of silly. There's no way to know how you'd end up if you were the opposite gender. Also, if you're talking about a clone of yourself with the Y chromosome removed or added, that's creepy. I mean, I'd be willing to bet I'd look hot since I have skinny genes and the women in my family have nice features (all you have to do as a girl is wear tight clothes and paint your face up, etc), but not to myself. No, thanks... creepy.
