Yes everyone is looking for the top 10%, avoiding the bottom 10% like the plauge and setteling for the best of the other 80%, shallow but true. People will tell you that personlaity matters. I say this it takes looks to get a relationship started and personality to keep it going. You can have the best personality in the world but if your ugly no one is going to make the effort to know you and find out how great you are. If you really good looking you can treat people like ****. They will stay with you for a while and try and change you before it falls appart but then your on to the next one
Wow. Jaded much? :-)
I think he's just being pragmatic...
Yes looks matter to a point. I have been out with very handsome men, but the one who will keep me will have a good heart. If he's handsome too, great. Average? What's that? Everyone has something to offer, don't they?
a guy should be decent looking...otherwise love may be replaced by pity..
It definitely plays a part in my reckoning. But I consider a lot more, too-- does he make me laugh, do we click, etc.
Well yeah. We're all human.
Then, those average guys need to find and be with attractive women.
Only weight matters to me. I don't date overweight guys, and never have, as long as a guy is slim and takes care of himself then I don't need perfect ten out of ten besides I'd only rate myself as a seven!
I'm glad I married the woman I did!! From most of these posts, I see how shallow a great deal of her gender really is... In my wifes words, a man falls in love with who he is attracted to, and a woman grows more attracted to someone she loves. I agree there needs to be an initial spark, however basing an entire relationship on looks is exactly why there are so many conversations on here that start with "I'm so lonely". Go ahead and search for that perfect, gorgeous person, and you will find them just as ugly on the inside as that incredibly nice, and loving person you passed up, because you didn't think they were "Hot" enough to show off to your equally shallow group of friends.
For the most part yes, but there is that odd mix, Look at Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft! Talk about an odd couple, She said the attraction is he made her laugh. <br />
and she was a LOOKER !!! WOOF??
Do looks matter to MEN?<br />
If your answer is yes, then you know why looks matter to women. And size matters too!<br />
But there are only so many attractive people to go around--then you have to take people that aren't so good looking. Unless you want to be alone and without sex. Which believe it or not, means more to women, than men.
Thinking that all women are the same is probably your biggest mistake. But looks matter to most people of both genders.
I often see homely guys with attractive women. I almost never see homely women with attractive men.
In someways looks matter more to some women than they do to most men. At the same time the standard is lower for guys. We judge other women more harshly
The attractive guys tend to have more confidence, and women are attracted to that confidence. Therefore, even for women who do not prioritize looks, the confidence tends to win out.
