I've seen really handsome guys marry XXXL girls with average faces (genuinely in love!)
For the most part, I noticed that these girls are from the same background as the guy (for example, same religious group). I noticed that guy with pretty girl seem to ask less of the girl (doesn't mind a wife being stupid, needy, dependent, not having successful career, not having great social skill, not have high education, etc), but handsome guy with "ugly" girl ... their girls are generally at least their intellectual equal or is successful at what they do.
I personally think its wiser to pick intelligence/personality over looks... cause everyone will get old and wrinkly at some point in time, looks fade, but intelligence and personality is there to stay.
For the most part women are more focused on the emotions a man can give them through other things than their looks, men are very looks oriented but you do find good looking guys with ugly girls, after all, if all the good looking women are with the ugly guys...
but I don't understand why is it weird to see that. Are not so attractive guys only supposed to date other not so attractive women? of course not. If a guy is not attractive and you see him with a hot chick, that means that he has an amazing personality, or an amazing (Whatever), there is an amazing part of him that caught the attention of that appreciative chick. and vice versa.
women goes for the personality, wealth, caring nature etc...they care less about the looks
but men mostly go for the looks...so u'll rarely find such a couple...coz every hot man will want a girl hotter than him or at least as hot as him!...but if he doesn't get any such girl...then he might opt to be with ugly girl...but that's really rare case!
This question does just reinforce my belief that most women are just B******! Its nothing to do with looks. It’s to do with love, what’s inside, if you have stuff in common with that person and if you’re actually able to have a conversation with them! This is a stupid question, FULL STOP!
