Have you ever dated someone significantly less attractive than you? What made you choose them, and how did that turn out?

Now, I feel like more commonly, a more attractive woman will date a less attractive man, and no one thinks too much of it, assuming the man makes a lot of money or is really funny, at LEAST.

But in my situation... I met this guy at the gym a few months ago - 6'3, tan, built, big, white teeth, big, green eyes, good hair, and a jaw you could cut glass on. Frankly, the kind of man who turns every head in every room he enters. Stunning.

And I'm... well... quirky. We first started noticing each other (and I guess noticing each other noticing each other) about 4 months ago, and now we're exclusive, and I gotta be honest, I'm having trouble feeling secure about it because he's miles out of my league.

Don't get me wrong, I work out. I show up every day at the gym, I'm strong, dedicated to self improvement, and I look better in workout pants than basically anything else, so it probably helps that he met me in my element.

Also, he's 40, and I'm 29, so maybe that gives me some stock? But I recently read that tall, very masculine men tend to cheat more often than anyone - I guess because they know they can have anyone, so there's less incentive to be faithful, maybe, and I'm so afraid to fall victim to the statistics.

I guess I want to know, especially in mismatch situations like mine where the man is more attractive, why did you choose the less attractive woman, and how did things turn out for you?
