Your postulate isn't really about attraction but about self-image and self-worth.

I would assert that it's not wrong to stop dating self-absorbed jerks who "realize they have tons of options" and as a result play into your insecurities.

It IS wrong to date women who are supposedly grateful that you even asked just so you can have someone fluff your tender ego.
You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to BirdieBelle again.

You know one thing that every woman I've ever met, hates? I mean really, really hates?

Men who don't listen when we explain our reasoning or motives or minds (which we totally will given half the chance) and then who sit there and explain to us what we are thinking.

An attitude that clearly tells us that while he might WANT a woman, he doesn't really LIKE women.

That will slam his "rating" from 10 to 0 in no time flat.

Ratios and punctuation be damned.

This is science.
Science also says its mostly because of body odor. We are attracted to those with a different immune system to ours (detected through sweat and pheromones) so that our offspring are immune to more diseases.

Evolution doesnt know or care if you plan on having babies or not.

But yes perfumes and soaps cover up natural smell a lot. But not entirely. If you love to cuddle with his t shirt when hes gone then its probably a good match.

Yes, is wrong to date less attractive people for you. There must be some degree of attraction to start a relationship. What are you doing is deceive other woman and delude yourself.
