Don't listen to these guys, they are jus tupset because they most likely are not that good looking, but expect women to settle for them. However, not one of them would settle for an ugly girl, so as many others have said, they are hypocrites.
Well, I don't think looks are everything, but I do think they matter to an extent. So, I'd suggets finding someone you are attracted to, but don't make your standards too high. I know a lot of guys have expectations that are too high, but those guys end up alone for the most part. Don't make the same mistake, focus on other things besides looks.
It is possible, that Misandrist (man hating) missconception that men only care about looks its not true at all. There are many couple were the girl is ugly and the guy is attractive. HOWEVER it is very rare to see because of two reasons and they have NOTHING to do with the guy. Before I start we have to remember that men HAVE to approach a girl, so girl is the one who makes the FINAL DECISION. Now let's start:
1) The girl may think that the guy is too good for her. So as the result she may think that the guy is just after her p****, because guys that good looking only go for attractive women to date.
2) Girls like to be the most attractive in a relationship. Girls DO NOT like to date guys who are more attractive than them, for fear that the guy will leave them for a more attrative woman, so they just safe themselves the trouble and reject the guy on the spot. By being more attractive than the guy, girls feel more secure about themselves and they feel they have more control as well.
I don't see many hot girls with ugly guys, unless the guy has money, or has an incredible personality. Normally it is money though. I would think the rules for ugly girls dating a good looking guy is the same. My sister is really ugly, but rich. She has no problem finding good looking guys.
Anything is possible. The other day I was at the movies & I saw couple that sort of fits your description. There was a 40/50 year old woman average looking with a 20 year old good looking guy. And some guys I know are really good looking, & fall hard for women who are unattractive & have a terrible personality. It's kind of like they are addicted to these women because they are treated so poorly by them. So, when it comes to reality, nothing is imposbbile.
Why is everyone giving her crap? Men have ridiculously high expectations when it comes to looks, & women are just supposed to deal with it. If you all want to pretend to be self righteous, then start dating ugly girls. I'd love to see the so righteous Stiches & Shaun go for a girl they didn't find attractive. Don't act like you guys wouldn't go for a hot girl if you could get her, you are all hypocrites!
