Also it can lead to unrealistic expectations. For example if i said Harry Styles was my type and i was only gonna date guys who looked like and acted like Harry Styles. Do you think anyone who was like Harry Styles would date me. No probably not a chance in hell.
I only partially agree. Because, can you honestly say that you could have a serious relationship with a guy who you have great chemistry with, but dont find physically attractive? What happens when it comes time to get physical and he/she isn't feeling it?
@FriedPickles1218 I think physical attraction is overrated. You really don’t need to look like an 8 out of 10 in order to be physically attracted to someone. As long as you’re not with someone you can’t look at like a 300 pound person , then you should be able to fall in love
@FriedPickles1218 how you’re gonna fail at finding love is if you reject a girl just because she’s not a 8 out of 10 or above. Or you would reject her just because she’s 10 pounds overweight. Just understand when you’re rejecting people over such dumb reasons , you’re disqualifying good potential mates that might very well offer you what nobody else can give you.
I never said anything about someone needing to be an 8/10. Attractiveness is completely subjective. A few lbs overweight is fine too. What I'm really saying is, what if you simply just dont find that person attractive? Because for the vast majority of people, physical attraction is important.
@FriedPickles1218 I never said that physical attraction doesn’t matter at all. All I’m saying is that physical attraction is overrated and overblown. Just wait till you approach mid 30s where everyone around your age is married , you’re balding and your looks are fading, you would finally start realizing that looks really are secondary.
@FriedPickles1218 people are picky within their 20s because they believe that they still have plenty of time and options. Until they realize their pickiness is what’s actually keeping them single. Go by chemistry , there will be more fruit for all that hard work.
I don't think I'm gonna lose my hair but lol... maybe your right. I suppose I'm still learning and growing as a person...
@FriedPickles1218 I’m gonna tell you something about my personal dating life. I’m only attracted to funny guys. When I was younger I used to chase the guys that I thought were cute and reject the guys who weren’t as physically attractive. It ended up that I wasn’t romantically interested In any of them because I only liked funny , comedic spontaneous guys. Now this is my new criteria. Just because there is physical attraction , it doesn’t mean that the relationship will work out. Chemistry and compatibility is key to a long lasting relationship.
I respect your point of view. Of course a relationship won't be able to work based solely on physical attraction. The point is, I think all the pieces need to be in place. The reality is, no physical attraction= no sex. I understand that it shouldn't matter as much. But for most people it does. I mean, I don't really have a type. I'm not one of those delusional guys that wants/expects a model tier girlfriend. But I at least need to think their cute. I'm not discounting the importance of all other forms of compatibility, but it still holds significant weight. As shallow as it may seem I suppose...
@FriedPickles1218 as disappointing as it may seem, most men marry very plain average looking women. And they work out just fine. If you can’t date someone unless they are “cute “ you are shallow and there’s no point in denying it.
Your getting the wrong idea!! Attractiveness is subjective!! I find average looking women "cute" all the time. You must think my idea of "cute" inherently means above average or "hot". It doesn't. I even prefer average looking women. Now, that doesn't mean I find every average looking woman attractive...But, if it helps, look up either chloe moretz or Kaitlin dever, pics without makeup. That's the caliber of female I find attractive. I consider them both pretty average looking. Maybe slightly above at most. Just an example.
@FriedPickles1218 most of attraction is not subjective. Only Some of it is subjective. We can mostly agree on what is attractive and what isn’t.
Is that a fact? I think most would agree that Angelina Jolie is/was one of the most attractive women on the planet. But she's definitely not my type.
@FriedPickles1218 Those are exceptions. But MOST of the general population can generally agree on what is plain or what is beautiful But I think that if average looking is not even good enough for you, there’s nothing wrong with categorizing you as shallow.
Omg. Did you even read my last post?
@FriedPickles1218 I did. It can be subjective but it’s mostly objective.
I think you need to read my second to last post again.
Okay. Well, so what? You think those celeb examples I gave are above average or something?
I wish girls my age would recognise these principles. Looks all fade an that's coming from a girl people perceive to be "pretty and slim".I always go for personality. Always.
For a relationship anyway, a bit of fun its different.
