So, my face and body is not really up to today's standard of beautiful (not even close actually). I'm probably what someone would call "average" or maybe even "ugly". Anyway, I was wondering since I'm not very attractive if my boyfriend is automatically attracted to most other people-- because if he is attracted to me, he must have a pretty broad range, right?
I know this is a weird random question, but I am curious.
I hope what I'm asking makes sense.

Attraction is a weird thing. There's a lot of different variables that determines attraction. How similar two people are, how different, how close (physical distance) are all things that comes into play when talking about attraction. Even one's biological immune system are involved, which is why we tend to find people who have complementary immune system of our own to "smell good" i. e. pheromones. Of course looks is also a factor, and in general people like symmetry and certain body proportions. But the key thing is that there are lot of reasons someone can find another person attractive, and it doesn't always have to be because that person looks great. So just because you think someone is more "beautiful" than yourself does not mean your boyfriend will find them attractive.
At the end of the day here's the deal. I know a lot of people, guys, who are in relationships and even the happiest of them will be attracted to someone who is not their girlfriend. It's normal. As the girlfriend, you have to have at least that amount of trust in your guy otherwise you probably shouldn't be in a relationship with him to begin with. One of my closest female friend told me this and it does not get any closer to the truth: her guy can build up his appetite outside all he wants, as long as he eats with her there's no problem.
