I've noticed that my more 'plain' looking girlfriends get hit on far more often than the beautiful ones, and the beautiful ones have fantastic personalities. Perhaps some guys feel like they have more of a chance with the plainer ones? I have no idea, really.

I get a lot of cat calls, a lot of looks (stares, really) and I had a girlfriend tell me recently that she hates walking into bars/restaurants with me because she gets ignored. I don't think it's because I'm attractive though, I think it's because I'm really tall with enormous breasts. So, I'm basically a weirdo that gets looks, I rarely actually have a man sit down and talk to me. I'm not sure if it's intimidation or if they think of me as a caricature? Who knows.

If men are giving you cat calls they probably think you are attractive. men don't really do that if they don't find you attractive at all.

True. They are impressed with the way you look, but they're too immature to act on their attraction in a classy manner. So JJ, you are lucky and unlucky at the same time.

You realize, of course, that this post is useless without a photo of you.

Next time you see a hottie and she catches you lookin, do not timidly look away like you have been busted. Look at her like her like she is nothing special.
So your advice is to treat a woman with confidence issues like she's dirt? Not the best advice I've heard...

There's a perception shared by a lot of men; that pretty women are prone to more highly irrational behavior. Because they're almost never challenged on it.

I have no personal opinion either way, just something I've often heard.

Life in general I'm lucky fear isn't usually in my vocabulary, except sometimes I will admit I can go abit weak around 9-10 out of 10 women.

Not intimidated, no.

They just tend to be high maintenance. They pretty much get whatever they want so they don't really have time to waste on those of us guys who won't indulge them for very long. As soon as you show her that you have a life outside of hers, she'll be on to the next one.

I've always had the urge to tell them that while they're pretty now...10 years from now they'll look more like their moms. But, I think that's too mean...besides, they can enjoy their looks...who am I to spoil it for them?

A chilled out, attractive, smart, funny girl with an outgoing personality just doesn't exist around these parts.

So you choose between personality and looks...and both suck.
