Firstly, those who wish to debate whether or not ugliness and beauty exist and/or whether or not ugliness and beauty are strictly subjective might want to consider asking their own question. There's a host of evidence that suggests that attractiveness, in particular UNattractiveness, is not very subjective... unfortunately (believe me, if anyone wishes this weren't true, it is I). Those who want to debate the shallowness aspect of this may do so here:
I have seen a number of people suggest that unattractive people should simply date other unattractive people (sometimes with a tone of "and please leave us beautiful people alone," but that's another debate). My question is, if YOU are attractive, yet you find unattractive people, well, unattractive, why do you think ugly people find other ugly people attractive? I don't think they do (I have unattractive friends who are married to or dating other unattractive people. The solution they've come up with is to image having sex with someone else or see prostitutes on the side. That's a solution I think to be avoided).
Believe me, I understand that attractive people don't have to give unattractive people the proverbial chance. However, why do you think ugly people have to give other ugly people a chance? Don't ugly people still have to be sexually attracted to a person?
Would it not be better to suggest to unattractive people to do everything in their power to make themselves more attractive?

I agree with what you're saying to a certain extent. Genetically, we are hard wired to want to find someone that has traits we want to pass along to our offspring. Slowly throughout natural selection, traits that people don't desire will die off while the ones they do will live on. On the other hand, it annoys me when I see a less than attractive guy only seeking out really attractive girls, while bashing the girls in his same "league". I think you should strive for whoever you're attractive for, but know that if you aren't attractive you'd most likely have to work harder to be with someone that is or who believes that you are attractive. Though I do believe that certain people have traits that appeal to more people, I am one to believe that if you are less than attractive to most, there are people that will still find you to be beautiful.0
