The benefits of dating someone less attractive than yourself.

Ugly partner Versus Beautiful partner… If you are ever faced with this choice then take some advice- always go ugly! Or for the politically correct, go the ‘attractively challenged’. ‘Why’ ?... but surely the answer is quite obvious… no? ok… well let me clarify an important point to begin with… If you only want a moment or two.. then the choice is up to you, but if you are looking for something more lasting, then go ugly.

Most people know where they sit on the beauty scale ( I wonder if it’s more of a bell curve with beautiful being above the 95th percentile ).. anyway, essentially the scale has beautiful at one end, and ugly at the other… Personally,  I am no fool and I know that I am further away from the 95th percentile than I am closer to it… well actually ignore me for once  because I am a bad example,  I am outspoken, honest and defy the rules… of which I should explain. ‘The rules’… not only do people generally know where they sit on the beauty (or lack thereof) scale, but they usually act accordingly. A person who knows that they are beautiful, expects to be appreciated and you had better know how lucky you are that they are in your life!!! This applies to any one of lesser beauty to them. The ugly person.. well, those poor souls are just grateful to anyone for having them!! They are well aware that they sit on the wrong end of the beauty scale, so will cherish you and count their lucky stars till it’s all over. Of course this only applies to people who are more attractive than they are.

So when it comes to dating- short term, very short term, or very very short term, choose who ever rocks your boat. But, when it comes to a lasting relationship, it makes sense to choose someone less attractive than you- because you will be cherished and valued more!… and frankly the less attractive they are the better!!!! (obviously this needs to be done within reason…let’s not go all crazy here, you know that you can have too much of a good thing), just remember -it’s all about the benefits! Date ugly, be happy!
