You misunderstand. Asian women favor intelligence, personality, and finances not just money.

They could care less what you look like as long as you dress nice and upkeep your appearance somewhat. More americanized asian women are starting to become superficial because are society is rubbing off on them but generally speaking they are the closest to having a genuine relationship with a women.

Women of other races won't even acknowledge an unattractive man regardless unless he makes alot of money.

Also asian women make the most money above all other women of other races in this country. As a culture they are very educated and career orientated which I find extremely sexy. They come here to be financially independent. They favor those attributes in a man because they believe thats what makes a man an alpha male not because he can take care of her. You do have some gold diggers but thats in every race.

I would rather have a women who respects and love me for my intelligence, struggle, achievements, status, mind and who I am vs my chest, arms, face and butt.

This! A 5"3"" man oh no ! You better be rolling in dough to attract women. Try wearing lifts & long pants. But then again I expect a man's manhood to be as long as 5""3""

So for me that would be a no no! Unless of course you were banking then it doesn't matter!

I'm not. That's why I gave up. Doesn't seem as important to me anymore.

I didn't read all those pages but from being overweight 90% of my life, I can tell you first hand that being overweight automatically makes you unattractive to men if your a woman. Men are just wired to be attracted to women who are in shape or close to it, its a sign of health and ability to bare children. That's just the way it is and the media has played on what has been true for almost ever.

Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.

I was born to a father of great genius and a mother of stunning beauty, and I inherited neither trait from them.

The very first thing I notice about someone is their voice, smile and eyes. Not sure what beauty is supposed to look like, but know that great beauty comes from someone's heart, integrity and character.

You know what's ironic? Many overweight women love to complain about how they're overlooked for slimmer women, but they usually do the same to us short men. I'm actually attracted to thicker/bigger women (yeah, I'm black lol), but I still have a hard time even with them. I guess I don't matter. Look at my post #135, and you'll see what I went through with one of the, arguably, least attractive type of woman in our society just last month. The girl in that story, "Want(ed) a bigger guy to make me(her) feel feminine." Yeah, she said that to my face.

I'm sure most overweight women could at least get with average to below average guys without a problem. Believe me, many guys are full of BS and are trying to look cool when they say "no fatties" or some nonsense like that. From what I hear about online dating, these guys are writing just about everyone: small women, big women, tall women: as most men who don't fit the "alpha" mode are desperate. However, I'm sure plenty of bigger women are just upset that they're overlooked by the Channing Tatum/Johnny Depp/insert any other highly attractive celebrity.

I can see how the attitudes of the "beautiful people" cliques can rampantly breed cynicism for folks. It took me a while to realize that they are a pretty small segment of things. The types that what matters most is model looks, money, social status etc, are hard to swallow, and they are the ones that receive the lions share of attention in media and such, leading people to believe their standards are what needs to be strived for.

Truth be known, there are far more VERY attractive men and women who don't buy into that nonsense than gets let on. One just needs to dig a bit, and not make judgements on appearances alone. Any more than you wish to be judged thus.

I have been very close to a woman for about the last ten years. We were friends, became more, and are now close friends. She is an attorney, and quite a prominent one. Gorgeous in every way. Her manner of public dress and her demeanor is what one would expect from such a person, in public.

However, that ain't the REAL her. She is a simple country gal at heart. Prefers her threadbare jeans and a t shirt to a snappy suit. & would rather pull her beautiful hair into a pony tail and throw on a ball cap to spe ding hours styling it. Getting muddy on the river bank is a favorite pastime and conversation is not about fashionable trendy societal stuff. It's fire ip the BBQ and snuggle on the pation talking fishin'.

LMAO, and there are more of her than one might think. My current relationship even likes her and she and I have spent social time with her and her current intimate man. Who is not Brad Pitt any more than me. My lady, who is the love of my life is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I am the luckiest homely guy on Earth.

Verily, the TRUE "beautiful people" are not found in swanky hangouts or snooty social gatherings where they serve rubber beef at $220 a plate and everyone is wearing Armani and Prada and would not be seen in public with less than a solid ten on looks accompanying them. The ladder is a pretty small and inbred herd. They just get seen on TV a bunch. Ha! Yep, I have concluded that lifes to short to worry about what some snooty bunch of animated manaquines with the depth of character of a bag of hammers thinks of me or anyone else, for that matter. Just tain't worth the effort. True beauty is a combination of many things that coalesce like a supernova when you learn to actually see it.

It's not easy meeting anyone offline either. I'm short, black (race is an important factor in NYC) and am a blue-collar worker. That's 3 strikes in the dating world around here.
You need to go out the the nightclubs.

Suprised you are saying this,as I'm way more successful dating in Nyc than anywhere.
The men seem more forgiving in Nyc. I think it also depends on the Boro you are in.
I'm a woman,so maybe things are different.

LOL I'm a short (5'3") black man. Things are VERY different between us. I'm virtually ignored in the clubs/bars.

Your comments disgust me actually. They are far uglier than any human being walking around out there who has to live life tormented by people like you.
extremely, digust, tormented?

your vocabulary is wild and over the top

what better way to invest your money if it isn't in your personal health?

imo health is the best investment anyone can make.
