That depends on what criteria you are basing the rating on. I have been able to play out of my league, physically on numerous occasions because I can articulate very well and have a pretty good sense of humor. So if you have other qualities and aren't wretched looking then as a 7 physically you can easily land a 9 or a 10.

I don't agree but this may depend a lot on where one lives and the ratio of single men to single women.

My experience is that women usually get a better looking husband. Of course, this is based on judgment that may not be objective. Additionally, women tend to decline much faster than men in their 30s and 40s. Good looking guys can also easily remarry several times, accentuating this observable fact.
The kind of insightful analysis I was looking for.

Males and females are different like this.

Females can go as far as she's a 10 and he's any number. You see it all the time with rich movie directors and CEO's of big corporations. They can be a 2.5 and date the hottest foreign super models.

Men can't do that. You will never see a good looking man, 8,9 or 10 with a woman who is more than 1 or stretching it 2, away from him. In other words, man is a 10, you will NEVER see him with a 7.

Exactly why I started this thread. But, as you walk through life and OBSERVE, this is EXACTLY what you "stereotypically" see MOST of the time.

By the way, underneath it all, those hot foreign super models are SO unhappy in these "arrangements." The big exception to the rule, as pointed out, is when "money talks and bull$h!t walks"

I've certainly seen this a lot. What women cannot seem to understand is that very good looking guys expect the world to revolve around them. It often does when they are single but catches up with them, if and when they marry. Suddenly, there is no longer a bevy of people paving the way for their easy success. Meanwhile, their narcissistic and inconsiderate tendencies come to the fore. Of course, very few single women will believe this.

In your opinion.

What I see instead is that women who lost out on the first go around are more than willing to give these guys every benefit of the doubt. Quite often she hastened the process.

His ex may call him a low life scum and she may be right, but few women care.

In contrast, previously married women usually have much baggage that the desirable single men don't wish to take on.

Strictly because he doesn't need to. Women usually need the cash.

No, it's not my opinion. I've linked countless studies and you know it. Married men are always better off (physical, mental, emotional, and financial health). Better off than single, divorced, and widowed. You just can't stand that reality, but it is what it is.
