13 Men Confess Their Thoughts On Dating Women Who Are 'Less Attractive'

By

One day, we humans, especially we human women, will live in a world where the most popular discussion about dating someone new is not centered around looks.

Sadly, that world does not yet exist. Social standards dictate women stay focused on their appearances or risk losing their value, and that absolutely blows.

Curious how much stock straight men truly put in perceived attractiveness (a trait that, let's keep in mind, is subjective as living f*ck), Redditor and fellow human Robotten asked men,

What would it take for you to enter a committed relationship with a woman who was definitely less attractive than you (physically)?

The answers divided users into two very different teams: Team No and Team What, Who Cares?

A future in which we avoid rating one another's looks on a 10-point scale sometimes feels like an unattainable paradise.

As a woman who began her dating life hearing, "Your boyfriend looks like a hamster," and wondering why anyone cared what household pet my partner resembled, I promise, when it comes to love, chemistry trumps social perception.

Let's follow our guts when finding partners and open our minds to different ideas of what qualifies as "attractive," despite the fact we've been taught differently.

Otherwise, we all could miss out on something spectacular.
