We have had thread after thread about this and this is kinda where everything landed. True you cant be a total tool but no matter how good your personality is your not getting your foot in the door unless your hot.
SO not true!

But let us know how your surgery turns out.

Then its even dumber.

Men are allowed to be ugly in our society. Want proof? turn on any news channel, the guy will be old and balding and fugly, the woman will look like a supermodel.

Liam Neeson is still getting romantic leads in movies for Goodness sake...usually opposite a female young enough to be his daughter.

Jack Nicholson, Denzel Washington, on and on it goes.

Ugly women are rejected, ugly men are acceptable, even preferable in some instances.

Typical double standard.

Yup. I am a woman, and I got cosmetic surgery, so I'm not opposed. But I can't imagine a guy thinking he needs to get cosmetic surgery in order to date. Something doesn't add up.

LOL! OK, height can be a handicap. But even so, I don't think those who are shorter than average are locked out of the dating scene for that reason alone.

That's about right, outside of Beverly Hills or Manhattan maybe, because that would include both a facelift and neck lift, a brow lift and an eye lift.

And here's a doc who does men well, too:

Los Angeles area Man underwent a Male Face and Neck Lift by Dr. Costanzo of Thousand Oaks

Last time I hopped on POF and match it was a disaster, it was an absolute nightmare trying to get the attention of almost any woman, I finally found someone but it was not like I had a lot of options. Every time I have tried to date through out my life I have had few options so now that I have the money it would be nice to see what its like to have the interest of 4-5 women and be able to get on and have dates lined up. I also cant rule out if its a regional thing too.

I wonder if they can do a complete alteration of appearance.

So how do you explain when I hop on POF or match etc and its a disaster but I have heard of guys creating fake profiles where they post a pic of a hot guy and write down some nonsense and have their inbox filled up like an average looking woman would.
