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.
LOL! well, good thing my mom is STILL rocking her looks at 62 years old. I have a lot of hope. I'm not worried about being gross looking in just 10 years.

Not necessarily... If the "opposition" (which is often the case) is the same, it's more of a constant battle of wills.

I think it has to do with the vibes that these "pretty" women put off that keeps the guys at bay. Also many scream "high maintenance". And, some are not as pretty as they think and if they are, remember the song "Lemon Tree oh so pretty.......but the fruit of the lemon is impossible to eat." I used hear that applied in the olden days when the "pretty" one didn't work out.

Yes, the higher the numerical scale, the higher the maintenance. More often than not.

Is it true that men are afraid to approach a woman they find extremely attractive, or is it just a line used to make these women feel better?
I honestly don't think it is a case of being intimidated by them. Men being the realistic and practical creatures they are, decide:

1. They're not in the mood for a woman they assume would be high maintenance

2. They assume that should they ever want to date a woman that is a lot of work for them, there are always tons of pretty girls around, they'll catch the next one available.

The more realistic and practical a man is, the more women hate them.

That's a pretty funny argument. If it were true (tons of handsome guys, in my case), I'd be jumping up and down with joy! I really wish I knew in which alternative universe it's true!

It depends on the man....... some men are accommodating to attractive women but once the pretty women gives them attention back they stammer.... seen that with my own eyes too......
