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

I would have to do a major league search for someone who <i>wasn't</i> better looking.<br><br>
My sweetie is a whole bunch better looking than me...thank God! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
<img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif"> Umm, okay?<br><br>
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.<br><br>
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.
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.
