Why am i so shallow when it comes to dating

But you have eperienced something that many people never allow themselves. You can take a fairly average looking guy..him some cool clothes, get him in shape, and keep his hair trim and face clean and he becomes sexy.

But the men set about the same bar for their partners no matter what they looked like themselves or how successful they were professionally.”Ordinary looking men whose picture is in the median in attractiveness would have to make $143,000 more than a guy in the 90th percentile in order to have the same success.

Similarly, a 5′ 6″ man would have to make $183,000 more than a 6’0″ man if he wanted to level the playing field.

Among the selected highlights:“Women were not only pickier than men, but also more realistic about their own appeal in the dating market.

We spent alot of time together because we got along great and shared a common bond and alot of same interests. I really got to see and know the inside of this women. I saw her heart, her humility, her mind, her dreams, her quirks, her character flaws, and strengths............

Reading the study about BMI and proportions, I now understand why so many men seem attracted to me even when I thought myself less worthy (in terms of status, income, or other variables) Men, at least initially, do seem forgiving if a woman just visually turns them on.

However for me that did not increase my odds- as I, in line with the study, have been picky (though about more aspects than just looks) In speed dating one generally operates on quick judgements- gut and programmed attractions – of course shallow.

The women seemed more realistic and open to a range of men with varied levels of attractiveness and incomes- though in general looking for a man with more income, I’m not sure they really expect 143-183,000 more .
