Are there people who are pretty/handsome but you don't find physically attractive?

In terms of looks, not personality. For instance, I can tell that Cobie Smulders is very pretty but I don't find her attractive one bit.



Anyone else notice this about some people?

  • Totally possible. I know lots of girls who are models and looking at them I can see why people think that about them, but it just doesn't *click* for me. And every other is joking around them and always hitting on them and I'm sitting there looking at them and trying to feel anything but I just don't, so eventually I give up. And this can happen before I actually talk to them or they talk to me, so it's not a matter of personality.

    There are other model-material girls that I instantly fall for, and there are tons of girls who others consider to be average and I consider pretty hot.

    • Oh yeah, I can see him being pretty hot. :) I also like Tom Hiddleston... just his voice.. and he's such a nice, likeable guy despite playing such dark broody characters. ^^

  • It means we all have different preferences, that's all. I can acknowledge if someone is handsome, without being attracted to him, or that a woman is pretty, without feeling attracted to her. For example, my best friend was into emo boys. I could see that they were attractive but they didn't attract me. Or when I see a bodybuilder, the same. Good-looking but not my type. Those men that I feel attracted to, have different looks. We all have our preferences, nothing wrong with that. And I notice if a female friend or a celebrity looks pretty, but this doesn't mean I'm attracted to her lol

  • yes most attractive people i am not personally attracted to.

    you can see attraction without feeling it. just like you can tell a room is put together nicely without liking it one bit. or a book is well written but you're entirely uninterested in the subject.

  • If their personality sucks, I automatically find them less attractive, that's just how it works for me.

  • Usually if a guy is too attractive, i won't bother because i class him as out of my league. Makes it easy to have the best friendships with them as i know they are incredibly good looking but i don' find them attractive and i wouldn't ever have a crush on them so talking to them is very easy. It's a mutual friendzoning. I usually go for guys who are a lot more unique in looks and personality!

  • I don't really think that girl is all the pretty. She's kind of average to me. Now, I have seen some REALLY hot guys that all the girls fawn over and then there's me who finds him the least bit attractive. It happens to me too, though, so I get what you're saying.

  • Yup, all of the time. It's just a difference of preferences, you can find someone attractive but not be attracted to them personally. I think lots of women and men are attractive and I love to appreciate different types of beauty but I have preferences just like anyone else lol

  • Well yes, most of the 'celebrities', and also quite a lot of people i know personally. I can see when someone is handsome, but it takes something special for me to find them attractive. That seems to be only loosely correlated with how handsome the person is

    • Yes, I see that a lot. A girl looks too perfect and it looks a little weird. But with Cobie Smulders I always thought she had a very masculine face.

    • Yeah it's a matter of taste too. I can't imagine how anyone can find harry styles attractive for example

  • Channing Tatum and brad pitt

    • Agreed about Channing Tatum, but Brad Pitt is extremely attractive (to me).

  • There have been plenty of people like that. And there are guys whom I may not find physically attractive at first, but then their personality makes me want to date them so that's just how it is

  • Happens to me too. Lots of guys people many girls find attractive I think are too pretty. Or they're pretty but in a generic looking way, that doesn't make them attractive.

    That girl you posted looks like she has a masculine shoulder line.

    • Mickey dear. I am not asexual by any means. I do get sexually attracted to people after I have come to know them and find their personality attractive. I enjoy sex and want to have it but only when I'm actually in love with someone... And it really doesn't matter what their sex or gender is.

    • I think pansexuality is beautiful, in a perfect world I believe that's how all humans should be. :)

  • I could go on and on, but Cobie Smulders is actually one I like.

    I used to like Jennifer Lawrence, but now I just feel meh about her. She is still awesome, though.

    Megan Fox is probably the best example. She is clearly attractive in all the ways you could be, but I'm almost repulsed by her.

    Scarlet Johannsen is another example, and I think she is awesome.

  • Definitely. Others will find them attractive, but I won't. That's just how it is. There are people I find attractive that others won't. That's how the basics of mate selection work. It would suck for nature for everyone to find only ONE person attractive and NOBODY ELSE, lol. Genetic diversity down the drain.

  • Actually most of my female friends I can tell are beautiful but I'm not attracted to them. This can happen with either gender and really is based on preference. I usually havegirls that I would date a d those I think only physically attractive. Colby smulders I only think is physically attractive.

  • That's typical. I cannot speak for anyone but myself (an important point on this site people) but I find there to be a difference, a dramatic one at that, between being attractive and having sex appeal. There are some women, around my age/peer group, who I will acknowledge as conventionally attractive but do not think of them in anything close to a sexual way.

    There's just something off about the way they look. Maybe it's the make up? Or the bombardment of seeing them all the time? I'm not too sure. I find girls on the street to be more attractive ;)
