Know? It's an attitude, no matter how good or bad you look.

Women, I'm assuming for the most part "know," being hit on a lot, flirted with a lot, looked at a lot etc.

But for a guy (me) how do I know? I never really could talk to girls past friendzoning myself until I was about 21 (Im 24 now).

I've seen a few women, and they've all directly told me I am "hot" "cute" "handsome" or a combination of.

Further, the last woman I hooked up with, and the woman who is currently interested in me, are both what I would consider way out of my league.

A few times a week, I have a random woman smile or say hello to me out and about.



On the other hand, some girls pay me no mind. Usually "girly girls" are the ones who pass me by, or go for the guys w bigger muscles or athletes (nothing wrong with their preference, just saying).



So, how do I know?
I know this is a zombie thread, but honestly what a weird question.

This would be a good question if you were blind, or didn't have any access at all to a mirror.

btw, here is a side tip: women see a mans clothes/appearance like a guy sees women's breast. in other words, if a guy wants to get a "boob job" to improve his attraction to women, he pretty much does it by dressing well.

I have a mirror. It tells me women wouldn't look at me.

I never cared if someone thought if I were attractive or unattractive especially if I didn't know them. Their opinion of me bounces off my chest like bullets do to Superman.

That's an interesting take. I dress badly! I don't care. Yet one day at the supermarket .... It must have been my charm. Checkout girls you know. She was in my league - about a five but still pretty cute when she smiled and laughed.

That would be for a very good looking man.


When I look in a mirror I don't see a good looking man. I see a five I would say. But one woman told me she thought I was a very handsome man! I didn't argue with her. Maybe her eyes aren't so good or something.


Well yeah, that would be about right.

Have fun folks.
I'll have to inform my husband that he loses points for his dress-for-comfort/function style. He's not particularly fashionable and wears a lot of graphic tees and hoodies. He still gets looks and hit on even if he's reluctant to admit it. I noticed he'd get smiles and looks when our three year old was a baby/young toddler and he wore her in the carrier. *swoon*

I thought the same thing....once went out with a guy who was so so in the looks department and he told me he thought he was a really good looking guy (out of nowhere)....FYI guys even if you think it donít say it out loud, makes you sound like a pompous ass, or that youíre fishing for a compliment and both those scenarios are pretty off putting.

men are told to have confidence no matter what now a man who's confident in himself is a jerk because you don't think he's good looking..sometimes as a man you can't win lol

I used to make a lot of sexual jokes and innuendos, people would laugh and play along. Someone else decided to do the same thing, and he was met with anger, hostility, and people leaving his table.

Back in high school, someone complained to a coach that it was unfair that I could get away with making mildly suggestive jokes and he could not, and the coach and the girls responded that the way I did it was "tasteful" and the way he did it was "creepy".

I've seen it countless times sitting in the back of a social situation playing poker, observing attractive men getting away with saying things and doing things that not as attractive men could never say or do without being perceived as a creep.

It is logically inconsistent.
I was just having this same conversation with a female friend of mine. She said if George Clooney grabbed her ass for a second, it would be cute, but someone as hideous as Al Franken does the same thing and it's creepy. A lot more is tolerated by the good looking guy.
