A partner who was substantially better looking than you? Enough difference that it's notable to strangers.
Pretend you are single and willing to date for the sake of this question.

This is a poll.

I can't answer the question because nobody is better looking than me.

I am totally lost on why someone would not.

I would have to do a major league search for someone who wasn't better looking.

My sweetie is a whole bunch better looking than me...thank God! smile.gif

You're fixated on them. What's it matter?

confused.gif Umm, okay?

I was just posting an example and that's the first one to come to mind so soon after that one thread that was in here recently where they were brought up.

This was actually in response to the couples you see on TV shows where the guys/girls are drastically different in levels of attractiveness and to a comment my friend made about a couple of our friends who are dating and are not similar levels of attractiveness. Most people you see are pretty on par with their mates and I was wondering if this is a decision people would make to keep it that way, or if they really cared at all.

Sometimes you just have to out-punt your coverage and hope for the best.

I don't date based on looks. Seriously. I know other people say that but I have learned my lesson a long time ago. I dated two guys in my younger years who were probably top 2% in looks. There are benefits but there are drawbacks. High maintenance - both of them. One was so self-absorbed that he was not really that interesting in other more personal aspects of the relationship. Now, I focus more on how we click as a couple or what is interesting about him. Stellar looks do not make a relationship.

as long as you get along with the person does it really matter if he or she is better looking than you?

Looks doesn't matter to me. How he treats people does. However, I don't understand why short guys hit on me. I'm 5'8" and love heels.

I always dated out of my league, looks wise. I was always glad the beautiful men had a thing for girls who could make them laugh.

I love these two as a couple! Look how happy they look. Have you ever read the story about how they met? One of those instances where two people really do seem destined for each other.

Have faith in you and the things you do.
