I wouldn't date a guy less attractive than my ex, but attractiveness is not just physical appearance. Someone could be less handsome but overall, be a better package and more attractive.0
I probably wouldn't date the Ashley Graham body type - it's just not my thing, though plenty of guys love her - but I've dated women who weren't as physically attractive as previous girls I've dated.
At least for me, I have to find the girl physically attractive, but this does NOT mean she has to be a 9+ or "near-perfect" by any means. There are girls I'd rate a 4 in physical attractiveness that I would date, as long as she was attractive enough to ME, and I'm looking at the entire package, not just her looks. Her personality, attitude, and long-term compatibility are going to be factors in that decision, not just looks.0
There is a lot more than looks that I used to take into account. If somebody was nice and kind and was really into me I would think that is more important over looks.11
What Girls & Guys Said
It depends on your goal.
I would if the girl treats me better than my ex.
Hey girls beauty is only seen from the outside but is ignored from the inside. Sometimes women are more beautiful from the inside than some women from the outside.
If your goal is so that your ex won't embarrass you with the fact that you can do better than her then you probably would stay away from someone not as attractive than your ex. They shouldn't matter to you though because it's none of your ex's business who you do and don't date. Her opinions should not matter to you anymore. So keep in mind when you're asking yourself if you would date someone less attractive than your ex.
If your goal is to make your ex jealous and you want her to come back and you're using it as a tactic though I can kind of see how you're trying to date someone more beautiful then your ex instead of someone less attractive. By which I think it's a load childish games. If you find someone more attractive than your ex and who can treat you better than just go for her and forget about your ex.
If your ex is something that's still in the center of your heart you got to ask yourself if it's still worth pursuing.
If you still love your ex and want her back you got to ask does she want you back. Is it worth fighting for and are you respecting and loving yourself? Because I can guarantee you that you guys are EX for a reason.
If there's love involved and there's kids involved I can understand that it's kind of hard by which I guess in another post I can add why sometimes using certain tactics can bring back your ex.
But would I date someone less attractive than my ex? The answer is yes. Would I date someone more attractive than my ex? The answer is yes. Would I date someone just as attractive as my ex? Would I even date anyone that looks like my ex? The answer is all yes. It doesn't matter what my ex's think. It's none of their business. What matters is how they treat me and how I treat them and if they're happy with me and if I'm happy with them.0
I agree with some other posters here, in that everyone has thresholds and standards for certain character or physical traits.
To me, "attractive" is a holistic picture and not just physical. I wouldn't date someone I thought was less attractive than my ex.
That said, everyone is different and everyone has strengths, weaknesses and things about them that are special. I fully understand that the next person I date will be special in new ways and not necessarily as great in every aspect as my ex was. That's what's beautiful about dating people; experiencing these unique sides of them and seeing what emerges when you mix parts of yourself with them for a time. But overall the new girl should be more attractive.
So as long as a girl meets threshold standards and exceeds others in a way I am interested in, she's attractive to me and she doesn't have to feel insecure or anything.10
Yes, it's not all about looks. It's other things to. Their is a reason why they are called ex. There are many different types of men & women. Stop using society, social media and porn sites as a key to find men & women. Not all men & women come as you see it. Open up your eyes and let your guard down. Soon you will see there are a lot of good people out there. This go's for both guys and girls.10
Yes because personality goes WAY further than looks. Looks can just get you in the door to some extent. Looks dont keep relationships though. Anyone who's had their heart broken knows this all too well. Plus let me direct it back at you poster. Would you date someone chubbier? Someone less attractive? If the answer is "yes" then you shouldn't have to worry because for one thing it means you have a wide array of options and two because with that attitude you will attract a worthier candidate.10
I would not.
There's a difference between voluptuous and fat. Ashley Graham has more leeway because her face genetically doesn't carry much fat. Any hot fat chick has that in common. They don't have a fat face and carry more of their weight on the hips/chest.
Giving them a good hip to weight ratio even tho they're overweight0
No clue who Ashley graham is, but yes.
Her personality would be better than my ex, the way she treats me would be better.
So many people forget that beauty is only skin deep.
There is so much more to a person other than looks.
Ask yourself would I rather be with someone who is really attractive but treats me like crap, or be with someone who is more average looking and treats me like a goddess or a god?
Beauty fades, dumb is forever.0
I care more about personality than looks Although even tho this wasn't the direct question this opens up a whole other bag of worms.
If i knowingly got with someone who wasn't as attractive as my Ex, if she say's "I am pretty than your ex" i would be forced into a position to lie but i don't lie to someone i am with.
So that's a dilemma.0
Beauty is subjective.
My current bfs ex is prettier than me in my opinion, she had red hair and blue eyes.
I have black hair and brown eyes.
He says I'm gorgeous and way more beautiful than her, but I don't think so.
It's hypocritical of me to say, since I'm still working on it, but have confidence in yourself.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.0
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder me personally am more attracted to a woman’s inner spirit than anything so someone else might see this woman less attractive then that woman but I look for how she treats people how she takes care of her kids or how she interacts with children or elderly basically how kind patient giving nurturing while still being strong and independent when I fell in love with my wife she was nine months pregnant and I fell in love at first site0
Nope... but when I think of attraction it includes personality. It's never just about the looks. There's a level of looks I'd never go below (when I was dating) tho.10
As long as she is honest with me, has a healthy self-steem and wants to be in shape, why not?
My ex was slim, beautiful petite, but if I get to be in another relationship, with a woman chubby like me, and "less attractive"* than my ex, I really wouldn't care, if she was the opposite of my ex, in important aspects, like the ones I first mention.0
I wouldn't be comparing my new partner to my ex why would I want my future relationship to compare to somthing that failed its such a insecure thing to do30
Depends. How's her pussy feel? How freely does she give it up? How are her BJ skills? Can she cook?11
I don't really see them as more or less attractive, they're just different and attractive in different ways10
Yes. I am looking for good enough, not perfect. Once you are above the threshold, I now want to know more about your values, interests and virtues.0
i would as long as she was not gonna brake my heart my ex cheated on me and after her im done with skinny girls10
Don't care about looks.
I don't care if you look like The Grinch. If you can pet me and make me smile, then your a 10/10 in my opinion. I don't date upon looks, I date upon if that person cares about me.0
No because less attraction means I love her less... I can't be romantically into someone I find ugly... If she's still hot but jus less hot than the ex il date her... But IL never date a girl I find ugly... That's jus stupid and pointless0
Yeah, definitely. My last girlfriend had this hysterical idea in her head that she was doing me a favor with her hotness.0
If I'm not with the ex, it's for a reason. Enough said.0

I'd say that's a thing! Don't make it all about the looks. Just make sure you're doing it for a good reason and not to make your ex jealous.
My ex did and merried her later for bad reasons. I am not saying I am so "beautiful", I might be pretty attractive ;) but she was very obviously way less attractive and kinda chubby. He even used to make fun of her weight and personality. He also cheated on her with me before I knew they were together (after we broke up). He even talked about getting back together while he was with her. She is very clueless about all the lies but I know what his game was/is and now they are both stuck lol
I, on the other hand, accidentally found a guy who is very hot (my ex wasn't, I just thought he was a good guy). I've dated many guys ignoring their looks and so far the good looking guys were the nicer ones to me for some odd reason. The not good looking turned out to have bad personalities as well. Is there a science behind it or just a coincidence?
Anyway, make sure she is your match and not a rebound. Looks are not everything but I learned from my experience that looks make a big difference. You wanna be attracted to your partner to enjoy them.
