There is one thing about an unattractive mate which I find very enticing. And it is simply security.
When you date an attractive man who is so dreamy he makes you melt, you will find yourself comparing yourself, thinking perhaps you aren't good enough and he thinks you are the "not so attractive one". You are forced to maintain perfection so as to compete, you tell yourself. But with a man who looks at you like an angel whether you have makeup or not, there is a calm comfort there.
And although you may find you are missing out genetically, or your girlfriends wont be awe struck by some stud you bring to reunion. You know you have someone to worship you.
Now perhaps to some this is silly, and simply being the center of attention in the household isn't enough to some, but there is another side that some may overlook.
We have all heard the expression, "They were so pretty, until they opened their mouth.." and I am here to tell you, looks aren't everything. Often men with amazing looks, are so conceded, and they expect to be spoiled so much, that they become quite ugly to us.. to a gorgeous woman, they are the ones, that want to be spoiled.
Lets just say, two pretties, can be pretty ugly.
Gorgeous women like to be taken care of and appreciated, and sometimes, ugly guys are just more worth it!
And often times, they are the ones with real personality anyway, because they didn't have a hunky face to hide their demons behind.
