Dating for ugly girls

Being beautiful is clearly not all that matters, but there is little use trying to deny that it doesn’t give you a leg up in society.

Women “are evolved at seeking out what we need.” We have an understanding of what qualities make a man the best candidate for mating.

We look for emotional wherewithal, solid critical thinking skills, fatherly qualities, etc.

We tend to choose partners who are less gifted in the looks department, and that fact has actually proven to foster the most secure relationships.

As Caracciolo affirms: Studies in the realm of attractiveness and coupling do tend to show that women in heterosexual relationships in which they are the more ‘attractive’ partner tend to have more supportive partners overall.

It is easy to just jump the cuff and think, “Oh, he must be rich” or “Oh, she must be really stupid.”That may be the case in some instances, but it certainly is not the case for all couples -- or even MOST couples.

I myself have always dated men who are less attractive than myself. For me, I don’t rate looks that highly on the list of qualities that I find important in a partner.As Emmalee Bierly, a marriage family therapist and co-founder of The Westchester Therapy Group told Elite Daily: There is so much pressure from society when it comes to beauty standards.We’re constantly reminded and told what makes someone “beautiful” and how to make ourselves more beautiful, however, men rarely meet the same kind of scrutiny.I just mean these ladies were normal, pretty women, and their partners were so very on the opposite side of the spectrum.I pointed out this realization to my sister and asked if she was as unsurprised by it as I was.This product of social conditioning rears its ugly head online even more so, as an average of seven men compete for the attention of one woman.
