My friends give me a hard time about this, I've dated beautiful women and it was a headache and it didn't end well for me. They cheated on me, said I wasn't good enough for them, & told me no other woman will want me. Because of this my insecurities have skyrocketed to the point where I don't even talk to them. I approach average women (5's, 6's, 7's & 8's) I'm not as insecure around them and they're down to earth, the extremely attractive women (9's & 10's) are the ones I avoid because I've had bad experiences with them. Why do my friends give me hell about this? Not every guy (included myself) has confidence to have a girlfriend (I'm insecure as hell and I'll admit it).
Most Helpful Guy
That is the way society is. Beauty is associated with quality, class, personality and skill. Good always looks beautiful, evil is hideous. The movies are like this(except for soap operas), sports are somewhat similar, politics follow a good guy/bad guy image and so on. Our parents demand that we date the most beautiful lovers we can find in ensure beautiful grandkids. Ugly is bad, beautiful is in. Always have, always will. There's no in-between.
Therefore, what you are going through is nothing new. People judge by what they see first and foremost. Only a question of when and if they wait to learn more before they make conclusions.
I personally enjoy the average looking women myself. They are down-to-earth and passable compared to the queenies and the stuck up pristine chicks who think of themselves as living goddesses, spoiled rotten by their parents. Most women who rate as 7's + are tremendously picky about their men, western women being the worst of the bunch in this regards. Leads to social problems. Therefore, the less physically gifted learn to overcome their meager looks with personality and skills. They know nothing is given to them.
Keep at it and judge the book by the novel inside the covers. I commend you3
