When I dated I could care less if they were attractive or not. I was raised a whole lot better than that.
Everyone dates people they are personally attracted to............except for the O.P...

I find the bold text to be very sad. It certainly does not reflect my experience with women.

But I am not faking it, I really am attracted more to someone who has visible flaws because I find them more interesting. Besides the fact they are less douchey and much nicer. They are thankful to be with me and I am thankful to be with them.
It didn't "come out wrong" because it's the truth in how he feels. He just didn't dress it up to make himself not look bad.

OP like Dissenter said if you are ok with less attractive women but who may be more "nice" for lack of a better term then go for it.


The stereotype of the hot chick who is a pain in the ass or high maintenance has been around forever, same with the homely plain janes being more agreeable. LOL, nothing new here.

Not true across the board of course.

I think it is the best looking woman who will have them.

Most men would probably rather have three 7s than one 10.
Most men wouldn't kick 2ís out if bed.

Im not gonna sit here and say I’m extremely attracted to these woman but they bend over backwards for me and i know they won’t be high maintenance or be looking for the next better option like woman who are I never high demand.
There's nothing wrong with it as such, but I've done it twice in the past. I hated every minute of it, it was like dating my sister. Close emotional bond was possible, but no physical attraction whatsoever. We're attracted to people who look like ourselves (most couples look similar to each other.)

You know as well as I do that you have little to no attraction to them, sex is unsatisfying and slowly it'll eat you up inside. Do you think you can live with the massive hole in your relationship? Do you lie to them when they ask you if they look pretty? Physical attraction is an important component in a relationship (especially for us men given attraction is almost entirely physical,) don't underestimate it.

As you would say we should, but really just the men.

OP, I get it, trust me. The pool where I live is average at best and mostly way below average in intelligence, attractiveness, etc. I find myself thinking I should settle, but I can't bring myself to do so. I have gone out with women I never would have looked at a decade ago. It usually doesn't go anywhere, but I have gone out with some of them several times. Its a dilemma for sure.
