Why Do Women Like Unattractive Men? Why do pretty girls date ugly guys? It’s a mystery to most of us, but I’ve seen it with my own eyes and I know you have too.
I mean, some women actually seek out men who are not particularly good looking. These women prefer to date men who are not especially pleasing to the eye and I just don’t get it. But it goes both ways. I know you’ve seen an ugly woman date an attractive man before.
You’re walking the isles in Walmart and you bump into really pretty women with ugly men all the time and the dude seems content.
So, I got to thinking about it and I asked myself why do women like unattractive men?
To answer this question, I checked with my niece who says she likes ugly men because they don’t cheat. Well, honey, that theory turned out to be false. Not to say that all men cheat, but because a man’s unattractive doesn’t mean he can’t get another woman to like him. But that’s what she thought and so do plenty of other women.
You think because he’s extremely happy just to have one woman, that he’ll remain loyal but other women are thinking the same thing. He’s as happy as a hog in a pigsty on a rainy day because he’s got two or even three women and each one of them thinks they are the only one. LOL
To prove some of these theories, the State University of Florida completed a study and it revealed: “Women with ugly men were happier compared to the ones with handsome ones.” The study also showed that women involved with good-looking men were too worried about their looks to be happy.
These women were afraid to “let themselves go” because they’d lose their fit husbands or boyfriends. Well, the study was comprised of women who didn’t think highly of themselves to start with, so I don’t think it was a fair study but they were definitely not happy with the thought of losing their man.
So, these particular group of women felt if they were with funny looking people, they could relax. They didn’t have to work out, or if they didn’t put on make up that day or if they missed hair or nail appointments, it would be okay. He wouldn’t say a thing. They would be on the same level. I went to Quora and found a couple of respondents and this is what one reader had to say:
Christopher Pierce said, “More and likely they date ugly guys after they date very good looking men but can no longer attract them because they still have SOME good looks left but are old and no longer desired by the same very good looking men because those men can just go and date younger pretty girls.”
My response to Christopher is: You haven’t seen older women lately, not to mention, you’re oblivious to the thoughts of younger men pursuing older women. Older women are fit and fabulous. We don’t have the little kids running about the house nor the baby momma drama going on. Aged women have our own; we were independent women way before Lil Boosie was even born. I don’t know what small country you came from, but I suggest you educate yourself. Here are the facts:
According to AARP, “34 percent of women in the 40-to-69 age group date younger men.” “Women dating younger men said they appreciated the strength, humor, openness, youth, and passion of their partners. What do the men get? Some of the attraction may be predicated on the mystique of the older woman, her appeal to younger men was based not just on chemistry but on “the luxury of having a finished person. With me, they got great cooking, a settled home, and bonding of souls who had so many common interests.”
Besides thinking they didn’t have to work to keep themselves up, pretty women who like ugly men say these men treated them well. Unattractive men cater to their every need and what woman doesn’t want a foot massage? Attractive men, women say, are more likely to want the woman to rub their feet. But here’s the thing: You can fix an ugly man up to look better, right?
Can You Fix Unattractive Men?
Now, you know beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What makes you unattractive? While I may think he’s butt ugly, you may see something entirely different. It’s not just physical attributes. Some women consider a man’s compassion, characteristics, and strength. These are the things you can’t see unless you get to know the man.
When compiling research, I found that “lead researcher Dr. Rob Brooks said: ‘Ugly individuals can sometimes do better than good-looking ones.’ Dr. Brooks, based at the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, said the phenomenon could be related to special proteins called MHC molecules, which are part of the immune system. The more diverse a selection of MHCs you inherit from your parents, the better equipped you are to fight off disease.”
Strangely enough, men smell differently if they have a certain MHC, and women can pick up on the scent. They like men who complement their own scent. Other than this trick, women like unattractive men because of the money. Some women will take a gentle, heavy man with a hefty bank account over a hard body any day.
Adrian Roshu says, “you cannot fix ugly – the skull has way too many bones connected in very complex ways. Ugliness is not compensated by working out or having money. That just makes people useful, not attractive.”
Hmmm, Adrian, what you can’t fix is stupid. I’ve seen Rickey Smiley and Chris Rock and I must disagree with you. Money does make people look more attractive. Whether it’s because they have been eating better and they gain a few pounds or because they can take better care of themselves, but they’ve gone from UGH to OMG.
On the other hand, attractiveness “is mainly confidence and stability and intellect. You can also ask why Gates and Zuckerberg didn’t marry Supermodels,” says Nicole Sansone, Relationship coach. “They rather prefer a partner they can communicate with and who understands them. They don’t need drama in their life and are not sex-driven.”
Things That Make You Unattractive
Women are picky in relationships because they have a picture of this perfect man and anything less, won’t do. They want a man with good looks, money, a sense of humor, a nice car, etc. Often, all those requirements do not come as a package deal. You can get most, but not all. So, now these women are faced with having to make a decision.
I don’t know about you, but bad breath is a turn-off! I refuse to kiss you if your breath smells like your butt. I’m not gonna do it. Get that checked. Sometimes, chewing gum won’t erase the odor associated with gum disease.
What are the most unattractive things about guys? Bad body odor! Good hygiene is really a no-brainer. No one likes a person who doesn’t take a bath. I realize we all have a body odor, but when it’s strong and unbearable, it’s because of neglect. Put some soap and water over the armpits and other body parts. Sometimes, you have to wash more than once.
What makes a man unattractive is his attitude. You can’t be ugly on the outside and on the inside, too. Change your attitude and it will put you in a new light.
Am I unattractive? Well, when you don’t get enough sleep, it shows on the outside. You get bags under your eyes and it makes you grouchy and this is not cute either. It’s what makes men unattractive, so go to bed on time.
