  • We're all shallow. Every single one of us. We tell ourselves as a society that love is blind but we're just not built that way. Mate selection is and always was about genetics. We're all looking for people with superior genes to pass down to our offspring. You can rationalize it all you want but logic is no match for our internal programming that came from thousands of years of evolution. No matter what you tell yourself, it's not going to make you feel attracted to that homely girl. It doesn't work for girls either. That's just the way it is.

  • Are you asking this because you can't get a girl?

    • Yeah that is true.

    • That's because women have to take more time to decide if the father has adequate dreams, there's a scientific reason behind everything. Humans, as illogical as they seem, are very logical.

    • That too but men are more visual. There are shallow bitchy women, but you have to think about it - women are more likely to hold back while men are ready to go.

  • ph please. guys will do anything for a pretty face

  • Not in the slightest. Yes, women can be shallow, but men are much more shallow by far. This is because in order for a man to like a woman, she must be attractive to him. But in order for a woman to like a man, he does not have to be attractive. Women are attracted to a multitude of different things, & as long as a guy has one of these qualities, she will love him unconditionally, even if he's ugly. Yes, most women start off wanting an attractive man, but women grow up & see so many other qualities are more important. It takes men a longer time to realize this, & a good percentage of them never do. And if you want proof, look at society. You will always see men looking at pretty women, spending their money on pretty women, & dating pretty women. But women are always dating men who are unattractive, even when that woman is attractive herself. Men just can't get past looks, but women are usually over looks by 17 or 18.

    • That is not true.In college I still see most attractive women with attractive men.Many women start to get over looks when they are like 25 years old.

  • Meh, matters on opinion. It can go either way. But the media does like to show really slimming, model protrayed, women with these average, somtimes overweight, men. So who knows.

  • to be honest, you're ten times as stupid as everyone else.

    • Why are women so defensive about their being shallow or not? It's becoming a subconscious thing, girls are being raised to think that they are somehow emotionally superior, truth is, men do things because we are insecure, we don't date Miss Perfect for her body, we date her to reassure ourselves, so trust me, you don't have any right to say that.

  • Ok so the shallow guy askn why girls are so shallow calls the cute little girl ugly! Go jerkoff jackoff! AND if that is your picture sweety YOU ARE NOT UGLY, you are not even ugly in the least and don't ever validate an a**holes opinion, they just come back with more crap!

    • Yep my 16 year old son doesn't dish out this much crap but he's mature...and he's not an a**hole!

    • Its hard to insult a 16 year old for being curious, but its easy to insult a 39 year old virgin.

    • Are you only 16? No wonder all the crap!

  • Everyone is shallow to an extent.Looks are what attracts two people to eaach other.I think guys are more shallow because they can base a relationship off of looks,doesn't matter how rude,mean,bitchy or ungrateful the chick is,if she's attractive that overshadows it all.

    • I think it's more common with guys

    • Not really, unless the guy has low self esteem. I know a few girls in that situation too, where the guy is a good looking dipsh*t so they put up with him because they feel they can't do any better. One girl I know keeps a guy around who's a jobless, penniless, felony charges pending loser because he's "really cute" and he is "awesome in bed." Sometimes they take a step back and realize they're dating nothing more than a human vibrator, but not always.

  • sa230e is rightIt's hard wired into our brains for thousands of years.The reason why is because guys can just get a girl pregnant and walk away; it's not the same case for women.And he's also right about passing on good genetics to our children.No one wants an ugly baby.

    • Yeap, at least someone is honest.

  • That's not true, I'm not that shallow.I'd rather go with an ugly nice guy than a hot jerk.I've seen girls with ugly guys. Rarely do I see guys with ugly girls. In fact guys don't even pick pretty girls. They just go for whoever's ''sexually'' appealing.

    • @TC123: Yeah, there is no true definition of beauty, I agree. I'm just generalizing because this question isn't saying that ALL women are more shallow than men, just for the most part.

    • You aren't ugly at all, so don't worry about it.

    • Just don't worry about it. Background info: I have self esteem issues about my appearance, but yeah, you didn't know that so just pretend it's nothing.

  • I'm not going to do this poll. It's not fair. It's stupid and sexist.

  • Women are in complete control of who they have sex with unless they are forced...so it is what it is and women have standards...men get over it...including me

  • As a man myself, I would have to beg to differ. Men are ten times more shallow than women. If anything, girls are too non shallow. Only spoiled women tend to be shallow, always wanting the hot guy, while most girls would be just fine with the average joe. Meantime, most men expect to land a supermodel, regardless if they themselves are attractive or not.

    • That is true.The most unattractive people expect supermodels

  • Easy, women do. Sociallyinept is 100% on.

  • It would depend on your definition of shallow. Urban Dictionary version: Judging a person based strictly on looks, not factoring in their personality whatsoever.Women will rip apart both male and females based on looks.

    • Guys might do it too but that's like a fart in a hurricane compared to when women do it.

    • Guys do also
