It's all relative. And sometimes something will work for you that won't for someone else.
Personally, I don't really go with scales of 1 to 10 very often; I compare, sure... but not by compressing everything to a appearance based (simplistic) scale. My "10" will probably not be a same to some of my friends; and the personality may diminish or increase that level of interest for me or anyone else.
I recommend two things; that you find a girl who YOU are attracted to, and who will make you want to be a better person; and not worry about what people would rate her as with regards to appearance 2) that you look at what styles you like, who YOU are, and start from there.
Now, as a total stranger, and not knowing personality or character; just going by looks, I would say that you remind me of Christopher Eccleston, who played "The Doctor" "Series 1" and Major Henry West in "29 Days Later" This is not an insult. No, he's no Brad Pitt, and not everyone will find him attractive, but he has something that works for him.
You might look at some of his styles or some of his character's styles to give you a hint; Find a character that you identify with, then go from there.
Same with women. What is your "character" or personality? Look for someone who will compliment who you are (when at your best). Someone who you don't have to pretend with. And make sure that you're someone that a woman who can feel comfortable being herself with.
whatever floats your boat...lol. whatever appeals to you may not be what appeals to others so what standards are we using for numerical ratings? lol. I don't go with scales and it's hard to judge a guy based on his looks, for all I care, guys can be ugly or really hot and still have a craptastic personality or he can really be a nice genuine non-fake person, to which I must say I require much more than a brief pictorial of his visage to judge more as to what he 'really' deserves.
10? You have that dark hair blue eye thing going for you that I hear girls get weak in the knees for plus you're not ugly. Even if you don't feel like a 10 yourself, guys seem to always aim for higher-rated girls all the time just because they believe they have the confidence for it to back up having that girl on their arm.
be confident, feel good about yourself (it shows), KEEP EYE CONTACT (you would be suprised at how many guys can't just keep a gaze) its very attractive, and be able to hold a converstaion without trying to hard to make small talk and you can get pretty much who you want.
It's hard to say, because your definition of a "10" could be different from my own (or anyone else's) definition of a 10. There is research that shows, though, that people often end up with people who are about as attractive as they themselves are. So, you can expect to be able to land girls that are roughly as attractive as you are, and you have a nice face, so you should be fine. :) Good luck!
I knew a guy who was absolutely butt ugly...but he had a personality that nobody could resist.
He dated some VERY hot girls...and he ended up marrying one of them.
I don't know any women who are going to pick looks over personality unless it's a one night stand.
Even a women who by her own admission is shallow wouldn't stay with a "hunk" if the personality is dead.
I have always been a handsome guy...but until I got over being deathly shy it didn't matter what I looked like. Once past that I had to develop confidence in myself.
I have dated women who most of my friends said were way out of my league. I think that's up to me to decide, and in most of those cases, while looks helped, it's my personality and confidence that made ALL the difference.
Asking who you ought to go after based on your looks is a fools errand. Leanr to love life, and live it like you only have the one chance...after all, that's all we get.
It's like a magnet...when you're having a blast and doing the things you love, it's gonna attract the full spectrum of women.
Don't limit yourself based on what you think a woman wants. Let her decide, but stack the deck in your favor.
But keep in mind - girls who are very attractive (8s and up) are very troublesome. They have so many social circles and options it ain't funny. Get their numbers and be friends with them, but don't expect them to come around.
Flirting with them is the way to go, so crack jokes on them. Be funny, be confident. Infact, approach them directly and say "you're very attractive, I didn't want to miss this opportunity to say hello". If she's in a bad mood, talk to her in the hopes she feels better.
But if a hot girl says 'Go away' or calls you a 'creep' for whatever reason, reply with 'You're a d*ckhead'. Trust me, if a girl wants to be mean to you, reflect it and treat her like crap in the same fashion. She's not worth your time.
So like I said, you can get anybody. But as most girls have put it, 6s, 7s, or 8s are usually where the good girls are at. And the hot women are tripping on their egos that they need to be adjusted and told that 'they aren't the sh*t' - its just that all those retards like to kiss their @ss too much.
This is silly, because your ratings will be different than other guys.
An 8 for you may be a 5 for me, and vice-versa.
So this is all a psychological thing...
I would say go for 6-8. Going for anything less than that, and you're going to feel like you're compromising, which is not good. Also your chances aren't really better with a 4 or 5 than with a 6 or 7, because remember these rankings are all in your head.
More likely, what will happen if you go for anything less than 6, you won't try hard enough, and that will definitely hurt your chances of success. So you need to go for girls who'd you rank high enough to keep you on your toes, and just focus on building confidence on pursuing the girls you're most attracted to.
The reason I don't say to go for 10's is not because they're out of your reach, but because there's a problem with you giving a girl that rating in the first place. No girl is that perfect, and so if you're giving a girl a 10, you're putting her on a pedestal and over-inflating her score...which will also sabotage your chances of success.
At best, you might rarely meet a girl who is a 9...and I would only reserve that score for someone who is very very nearly perfect...but it's best to even avoid giving that score unless you have to...
So if you see 10, what you need to do is to keep blinking until you see 8. Then you can pursue. Your best chances of success are when you can go in there with a level-headed perspective.
Scientifcally speaking, you'll find a girl that is around your level of attraction, +/- 1 or 2. If you want people to judge you on your looks, go to hotornot.com. Nevertheless, this is America. So, why not go all in and go for the 10?
you can really pursue any girl you want, I experimented with this once. even if its only physique or personality. getting with a girl is all about the way you talk no matter what all girls like confidence. just need to basicly have the slikest replies ( but don't force it to much cause then they think your cocky) that's why you sometimes see fugly guys with hot chicks (and I know it ain't personality cause I know some that play starcraft II all day) is all about the way you approach them with grammar trust me
There aren't rules about this, but I think you know the 10 girls are usually only going to go with a guy with a hot car when young, or a hotter car when they are older, and tend to be REALLY vain and shaoow, even more than the average!
So if you aren't into that, I'd stay about from the 10's. Unless they're ASian, they tend to be nice.
I once had a threesome with two Filipinas, I'd say 8 and 10...
I don't know why everyone has to keep throwing the same crap out there about being shallow because he wants the rating system. Let's face it 10's end up with 10's and 5's end up with 5's. Anyway your about 6ish... hit the gym? tan? I don't know pull yourself up to a 7 with that then you'll be fine. Don't expect to be pulling the hottest girls because your not the best looking guy. My honest opinion.
Don't aim for a Specific 'rating' just get to know any girls you like and keep your options open, one of them is bound to go for you.
Just a wee recommendation, try growing your hair so that you can do more with it and try to style it to make you stand out a bit more. Hell, having a great hair style that suits you can bump up your attractiveness rating.
You resemble some friends of mine and they tend to do well with the ladies so good luck.
