but I, too, have dated my fair share of Salman Rushdies.I've welcomed men into my bed who were short, fat, or balding (sometimes all three), while I, thankfully, am none of those things.Anecdotal evidence aside, I know for a fact that I don't find "hot" men attractive.* Let me clarify - I find them pleasing to the eye, and every so often quite tempting, but I don't find myself actually attracted to them. [Disclaimer: This post should in no way indicate that my boyfriend is ugly and/or unattractive.And here I have to admit that I am undoubtedly judging their books by their covers, but I have yet to find the exception to the rule. But I find that women are much more inclined to date with their emotions - to pick a man that is funny, comforting, kind, and generous - and they'll often pick one or all of those traits over his looks. It annoys the hell out of me that he always tries to overcompensate. He always wants to buy me anything and everything I want, even though he can’t cause we’re not rich, but he always tries his best. He supports my goals and dreams and always believes in me when other people do not. On the very downside, his ridiculously honest comments at the beginning of the relationship have given my self-esteem a beating. He has since said, “Physically you are an okay, pretty girl, but that’s it.
There are plenty of studies on this strangely anti-Darwinian phenomenon - studies which I think don't answer the question as well as I, with my oh-so-steadfast opinions, can, do, and will. Let's talk about what exactly is wrong with these conventionally attractive men, and let's talk about what is right about these, well, conventionally -attractive men.Some had been together for just a few months, others for several years.The individual men and women were then rated on their looks.I think I didn’t confront him for so long because I really liked him otherwise.I was also only 20 at the time and really wanted this relationship to work.
