Do women prefer less attractive women as a best friend, or is character and loyalty more important?
Some women love to be the center of attention, and are very competitive when it comes to the male of the species.
I personally cannot answer for all women, however, one thing I would say that my definition of a "best friend" is someone who you can always count on. Someone you can trust of course, who is always there for you in good times and bad times. Like the song says "In good times and bad time, I'll be on your side for evermore, cause that what friends are for...."
When it comes to a situation where women are choosing best "friends" who are less attractive simply because they want to be the standout person in the crowd, that's just an immature game. These women have low self-esteems and values. This is like trying to gain fame at another person's expense or in other words trying to use a person!
It depends on the woman. Competitive and shallow women prefer to "outshine" their friends in some way, shape, or form. That includes finding friends that are less attractive, heavier, or less accomplished in order to draw men to you vs. the friend in social settings and situations. Many women are competitive and even mask this by pretending to have the best intent in their friendships. Some women still befriend other women based on looks for the "perks" that it can generate at times.....v.i.p., drinks, or other freebies.
I find some women choose their friends based on common interests and character. This appears to be the minoritiy as we get older according to my experiences.
I myself care about loyalty and character when determining the values of my friendships.
In finding a friend, I like to find someone that has similar values, hobbies, and just feels compatible. It doesn't matter if they are more attractive or less. I don't even think about that when choosing people that I want to get to know.
My personal preference would be to have a friend who respects you and trusts you no matter what your motives may be. Can they be willing to spend time with you even if you call them at 3 AM? Maybe. Maybe. A true friend is someone is always there and not when it's good for them.
Character and loyalty are definitely more important that the attractiveness of the friend. I do not care what the person looks like as long as that person has my best interest at heart. Attractiveness does not make a best friend. Loyalty, compassion, trust, honesty, support, and love makes a best friend.
There is no general answer , it depends uopn the person seeking friendship. however a friend in real sense is "someone who knows all about you and still love you" beauty and character are not the basic ingredients of friendship.
