Of course. I would take this to be common-sense logic. However we all know that people place looks on their level of priorities and there is nothing wrong with the desire to be with someone you enjoy looking at. Plain Janes and beauties can be just as faithful, which is where personalities come into play. What I see going on in this thread, along with what I've heard from men in person, and continue to see around the internet is the idea that men desire beautiful women while finding them intimidating at the same time. Honestly I just want to say, make up your mind.

It is always better to proceed with the assumption that people, at least deep down, are kind and sensitive, and that nobody wants to hurt you on purpose. One should also treat the unpleasant events as mere aberrations and move on. Then life would be beautiful.
I don't see life that way. I don't trust anybody.

Gamers, sci-fi, fantasy, comic book (film) geeks, academics, "free-thinkers," cosplayers, science-y types. Those are the kind I associate and get involved with. Pretty much every guy I have ever been with.

If that's the case the men might not be the type to usually approach a woman in a direct romantic fashion. They could be shy or just have poor experiences with approaching in general. You may have to take some of the onus upon yourself to initiate conversations, or at least put yourself in a situation where you will interact with them enough so that flirting can come out naturally.
While also an introvert, I'm more assertive in these sort of situations. I actually am the one to usually initiate contact or make the first move.

Sure. Ever heard of approach anxiety? Fear of rejection?
