Should I Date a Less Attractive Man?

Dear Jocelyn,
For several months I have dated a wonderful man who actively (successfully!) seeks to make me happy. Why I write: he does not have conventional movie-star good looks. When we started dating I considered whether looks were important to me, but since I am definitely attracted to him I focused on the fact that he is wonderful and makes me happy.

While he has always been self-conscious about his appearance I have been fortunate to have never worried too much about my looks, which makes for a weird power dynamic in this area: I even wondered recently if strangers wonder why we are together.

We have physical attraction, which is important. However, a friend once asked if my new beau was hot and I didn't know what to say: "Not according to society"? How important is it for your significant other to be found attractive by others? I love him and would like to compliment him on his appearance but don't want to be insincere.
-More than Skin Deep

Dear Skin Deep,
You are not alone in being self-conscious of the disparity of attractiveness levels. It is a common joke in our culture to wonder how a nerdy guy "scored" a hot woman, or what a handsome man sees in a homely-looking lady. While this makes for a funny sitcom plot, it is a terribly shallow way to see a relationship.

Yes, it is nice to date an attractive man or woman. Beautiful people are nice to look at. And if you were buying a piece of artwork, looks would factor most heavily into the decision. But you are not buying art, or arm-candy. You are dating to find a potential spouse. Character, goals, religion, and the like all are important factors to consider. Beauty will eventually fade, but character, humor, and a shared set of values will not.

This is not to say that attraction is not important. Attraction is very important, but (as you have found) is not necessarily based on looks. Something wonderful happens as we get to know a person—our familiarity with and appreciation for their good qualities can produce a powerful attraction.

Looks are not important when dating a person. As to how to answer a well-meaning, but misguided friend who asks if your boyfriend is a "hottie," you can take one of two approaches—super honest or super sweet. "Nope!" said with a big smile and a laugh, or "He is to me!" are both good responses. (Guess which one is which!) Both must have confidence behind the answer, and an unspoken "Don't push this!" to make them work.

For your last question, you can compliment him in whatever way you find honest. Do you enjoy his smile? His eyes? His biceps? One thing to remember is that something does not have to be objectively true (regarding looks) for it to be true for you. If he dresses in a tux and you love how it looks, tell him how handsome he looks. Or squeeze his bicep after he lifts something heavy and say how sexy he is when demonstrating his strength. Stop being concerned about society's standards, and I think you'll find you have plenty to compliment him on.

This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until i got my happiness back and he also provides spells that cures impotence, bareness, diseases such as HIV/AID E.T.C You can contact him via email at { Doctorokpamenspelltemple@yahoo.com } or visit his website http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com.

My wife is back!!! my name is Gakuba Rauzan. I had a problem with my wife six months ago,which lead to us apart. When she broke up with me,i was no longer myself,I felt so empty inside. Until a friend of mine told me about a spell caster that helped in same problem too, that she found on a television program. i emailed the spell caster and I told him my problem and I did what he asked me to briefly make. To cut the long story short,before i knew what was happening,not up to 48 hours,my wife gave me a call and she come back to me and told me she was sorry about what has happened, she now tell me every day she love and miss me.

HOW I GOT AN EVIDENCES THAT MY LOVER WAS CHEATING ON ME.

I have used jartoyiyi@yahoo.com quite a number of times and they have never disappointed me. They helped me monitor my Husband phone when I was gathering evidence during the divorce and when I noticed that he was cheating seriously on me. I got virtually every information he has been hiding over the months easily on my own phone as the spy app diverted all his whatsapp, facebook, text messages,sent and received through the phone and I also got his phone calls and deleted messages. he could not believe his eyes when he saw the evidence because he had no idea he was hacked. They do all types of mobile hacks and computer hacks,you get
unrestricted and unnoticeable access to your partner/spouse/anybody's social account, email,E.T.C Getting the job done is as simple as sending an email to jartoyiyi@yahoo.com OR jartoyiyi@gmail.com... Contact them today and just let them know what actually you need as they makes it possible to monitor your partner and know what he or she is doing...

Good news to everyone reading this comment. I want to share my testimony on how i belong to the world famous illuminate fraternity society, and how i have become more famous, by acquiring huge wealth, riches and fame. Here is how my life changed. A friend of mine that was always giving me money, because he was very rich, wealthy, famous and successful. On one beautiful day, he said to me that he is not going to give me any money, that he is going to show me the way to be successful in life. So i was very happy, i never knew he was a member of the great illuminate society. So i was initiated to the world famous illuminate society, and few days later, i was awarded a contract worth millions of Dollars. Right now as i speak, in my business i am doing very well, i travel the world on business deals, i am now the one that gives money out to people, before life was so hard for me and my family.

Warning to all around the world,


Don t fall into the hands of scams trying to get the blank ATM card on the internet. I came across so many comments of a blank ATM card worths millions, thus i doubted all this but there was this comment made by LOUIS including his email for confirmation regarding the card. I contacted LOUIS and he told me everything and how he purchased the card from GREAT HACKERS. immediately i contacted the email address he gave me, { atmmakingmoneywithease@yahoo.com }. Few hours later i got a response and was told all the processing which i agreed willing to see the end. Three days later i received an email regarding my tracking number to my parcel and before i knew it, the CARD was delivered by the UPS courier service. I did not believe all this even when i was holding the ATM card, until i was able to withdraw the $5,000.00 he told me i can withdrew per day. Today i am a company owner with so many other properties, all thanks to GREAT HACKERS. I took time to make this comment to avoid anyone falling into the hands of scam, so i advice you never to contact any other ATM card seller expect this very man because he is for real. Contact him today via email{ atmmakingmoneywithease@yahoo.com } AND ALSO YOU CAN WHATSAPP HIM TOO: +2348077526136
