"If men had any real options in dating, only busty women would be dating" do you agree or disagree?

Do you agree with this? My friends said that if they had any real say in dating, only women with nice bodies would be in relationships. That men often have to settle for women they don't like because the women they do like don't want them. And women who don't have nice bodies like Jennifer Lawrence or Scarlett Johansson are lucky to get boyfriends.

  • Yep, exactly. Men have to settle for the women that like them

  • i agree with @mroracle that physical attractiveness is important in a relationship. that said, everyone has different preferences, and what's physically attractive to me may not necessarily be to you.

    (i'm an average-looking "girl next door", though my other half still looks at me like i'm the most-beautiful woman in the world; beauty is in the eye of the beholder, after all.)

  • All else being equal, of course, both men and women would choose a physically attractive partner over one who wasn't. This is hardly news, or controversial.

    But all else is NOT equal, and we have to date in the real world. There aren't many JLaws and ScarJos to go around, and, to no one's surprise, they end up with good-looking, often wealthy, often celebrity men themselves. They don't date schlubs like me. LOL.

    Yes, physical attraction matters, and everyone has a "market value". And like in any sizable market, some people will value one aspect of something more than another, and the next potential "customer" who comes along may totally disagree with the first "customer's" valuation and priorities.

    But, on average, we know what the market values. Physical attractiveness is valued in women, as is youth. Physical attractiveness is valued in men, as is security/money. Other things are valued as well, but those are probably the top 2.

    It's also true that everyone wants to get the most value for their own "treasure", and it's equally true that the vast majority of people are going to end up with someone very near their own "market value". That's great if you're a 9 or 10, and not so great if you are a 1 or 2. But someone who is a 2 isn't going to get a 7, and someone who is a 5 isn't going to get a 9. At best, you might get one level higher than your own, but rarely more than that - so if you want better than that, you have to BECOME better yourself.

  • This point of view assumes universally agreed upon preferences in women.

    There is no such thing.

    I agree that Jennifer Lawrence is an objectively beautiful woman. However, if I'm to line up women by my own prferences, she likely wouldn't make the cut for even the top 1000.

    Other men disagree with me. That's the point.

  • Bull shit.
    Firstly men have different prefferences. Some like their lasses curvey, some chubby, some skinney. There are nearly as many different opinions on what makes a woman attractive as there are men... if not more to be honest.
    Secondly physical appearance matters a lot less to most men than the media makes out. Boobies are wonderful an all, but one look at sexual behaviour studies will show that men pick faces over figures... and their taste in facial features varies even more than taste in body type.
    And for both face and figure guys are very flexible. Willing to redeffine their opinions of what they find attractive based upon those they meat. This isn't "settling" as so many people would derisivly call it, its simply that other things matter more than physical appearance and their taste in that changes to reflect this.
    Most of all most guys care primarily about personality... and more etherial things. Lifestyle. Interests and hobbies. Sexual compatability. Physical chemisty... but guys are always more flexible on what they consider their boundries than women.

  • There's some truth to that but there is some truth in that for women as well. It wouldn't surprise me if the woman I end up with has in part settled for me.

  • I completely disagree. I've dated a petite woman with small breasts and I've dated a fluffier girl with large breasts. I really don't care. If I'm attracted to her I'm attracted to her. That shit doesn't matter.

  • There is some truth to it. Although I wouldn't really base it on body type, but beauty is also shit like facial features. My one friend for example is a bit overweight but has a pretty face and guys are constantly chasing her. This is the case for men and women.

  • Partially true, but it goes for women as well. You can't tell me women wouldn't choose from the cream of the crop if they had the power to do so? People are physically selective, it's human nature as shallow as it seems. Obviously when we realize what we look like, we have to set realistic expectations for who we date, if at all.

  • I am not in any relationship and not feeling well at the tought of downgrading myself and taking someone I don't really want. I try to be together with what I feel might suit me in appearance and common interests but a pretty girl still has slightly better chances than one I would find ok

  • That is ridiculous, first and foremost that she suggests that men are that shallow. Thier are many factors looks are only one of those. Furthermore everyone has different tastes in looks and they vary wildly (aslo, your friend is a bit clueless since many guys find scarlet johansson to be insanely attractive) so even that is not applicable since some guys like women who are petite others like them thick and others still like women who are chubby, some guys like small breasts others large etc. So no that statement is inaccurate to an extreme degree.

    • They are men. Not women who said this.

    • Show All
    • "She suggests that.." there is no she. It was he. Many he's.

    • I am sorry I thought you said your friend was a she. As for your friends, how old are they? They seem incredibly ignorant and completely wrong in this respect, for starters not a single guy I know has the same tast in women, not one of them. The other part of course being the notion that looks are the only thing that matters which again, unless your friends are teenage boys who are very insecure, the vast majority of men that I know would never claim that looks are the only thing that matters and that she had to have a very specific body type and if their was any deviation she would be considered ugly. I know guys who like thick girsl and petite girls large breasts small breast large butts small butts etc. So unless every man I have talked to is lying I would say the only reason why your friends have made this claim is due to being insecure. Also I don't know any guys who think scarlett johansson is unattractive so again, seems highly unlikely that they where honest opinions of guys.

  • Yes everyone would like someone with 10/10 looks but most men and women settle for on looks when they find a good personality or when they hit 30 and take anything

  • You know, women are not materialistic, money grabbing whores and men are not shallow, aesthetically obsessed idiots.

    There are men who find women of all shapes and sizes beautiful and sexy, to say they would go for tits over anything else is disgustingly insulting.

    So no, I think this is rubbish.

  • Sorry but your friends sound terrible. That's the kind of attitude that prevents people from finding love and happiness.

    There is nothing wrong with having preferences, but they have to be reasonable or they will find themselves lonely.

    Beauty has some part in finding a relationship, but it's not the only thing. Besides, guys have plenty of choices when dating. It may not feel like it when they are single, but they choose whether they want to date a particular girl or not. They don't have to date anyone if they don't want to.

  • Well at least 1/4 men prefer smaller breasts so no, I wouldn't limit it to busty women.

    However, if women had their way, their boyfriends would all be physically attractive too. With lots of money & great personalities.

  • All men have different tastes, some prefer skinny girls and some prefer curvy ones. Some like small perky boobs and some like big bouncy ones, some like fake boobs and some hate fake boobs. Girls are way more judge mental of their bodies than guys are.
