It also apparently gets her free food.

Hey, it's how I got married.
 
2017-09-13 10:07:51 PM  
Of course, the bar was pretty low.

Well look what happened to Chris Pratt and and Anna Faris.

He was a fat schlubby guy and his marriage was great. He started working out for blockbuster movies, he got hot, and then their marriage fell apart.

Except you have to put up with the cheating.

All my relationships with women have been successful.

That's the point.

Not for us gay men.

IIRC, in interviews he said he was just a regular schlub, and Faris was just a really good cook. Apparently she turned him into a fat guy.

They left out the wealthy part.

Sooo... basically it works when the guy is the doormat
 
2017-09-13 10:13:33 PM  
Uh, no, this wasn't about relationships. This was about dieting.
From the studyless attractive women with more attractive partners may be particularly motivated to diet... Less attractive wives married to more (versus less) attractive husbands reported more dieting motivations and behaviors.

Basically, if you're a 5 married to a 10, you're probably going to work more at trying to be super fit than if you're a 10 married to a 5.

Works for me. Pretty funny to be at my wife's house and see the pictures of her from high school. She was a mean girl. Still is.

As a decently attractive guy who is a complete asshole and a narcissist, they're probably right.

This is so obvious it hurts my face just to see it written out as though I've just been slapped with a fish.

But, I find myself unable to articulate exactly why it is so beyond a general feeling of "Well obviously."

But this goes back all the way. Cleopatra rolled herself up in a carpet for ceasar, not vice versa.

Now, if the less attractive man is currently, or has previously been in prison, they'll be crawling all over one another to get to him.

All the real men are in jail, and all of that...

This is why none of my relationships have ever worked.
 
2017-09-13 10:22:13 PM  
obvious tag is where?

This has been the way since arraigned marriages ended. If you see it the other way around it's a bit jarring. Men tend to be visual, so there is a premium put on visually attractive women.

Women tend to whatever she feels at the moment, there is no telling what a woman wants.

Specifically, the study found that:
- women married to more attractive men were more motivated to diet than those married to less attractive men; and
- men were equally motivated or not to diet regardless of the relative attractiveness of their wives.

And as the study authors note, it's completely predictable. Society places higher value on women's attractiveness than men's; and more value on men's earning potential than women's - a woman who feels inadequate will therefore try to become more attractive, while a man who feels inadequate will therefore try to earn more.

The research may be useful in identifying potential candidates for eating disorders: "Practically, the current findings highlight an important factor that may help identify those at risk of disordered eating-less attractive women paired with more attractive men, who may fear falling short of their partners' standards."

I am living this. I married a girl way out of my league. She wanted a well-read guy who could talk about ideas. Years later she tells me that it was really my dog. Son of a

uber humper: Men tend to be visual, so there is a premium put on visually attractive women.


That's why all major fashion critics and designers are men, and why men spend hours shopping and trying on outfits while women zoom in, grab a random pair of jeans, and get out.

You don't believe society puts a premium on attractive women?? are you insane, blind, live in a cave or otherwise out of touch?

Sometimes I used to wonder
How the hell an ugly dude get a fine girl's number
He's gettin' juiced for his ducats
I tell a girl in a minute yo, I drive a bucket
 
2017-09-13 10:29:22 PM  
women shouldn't go for more attractive men. That's a sure way to make yourself feel ugly. Likewise a younger man----ha, keep telling yourself that you can hold him, granny!

Men are easy to hypnotize, though, and there are all kinds of ways to blind them to your obvious flaws. the best ways:
1. Sex.
2. Also important--sex
3. Sex again
4. I said they were easy. Think.
5. I don't have to say it again, do I?

So happy hunting!
 
2017-09-13 10:30:37 PM  

Ow! That was my feelings!: All my relationships with women have been successful.

That's the point.


Except that one time. But I accidently tried DRUGS..

So, That one time don't count.

Maybe instead of telling the girl in a minute yo, the ugly dude talked to her like he went to school on the regular sized bus.

You and your wife have separate houses?

I find women more attractive than men anyway, so no problem.
 
2017-09-13 10:35:40 PM  
Can confirm.

15 year relationship.  I'm a potato shaped, large hairy land mammal.  Nobody should be with me, let alone my beautiful wife.
 
2017-09-13 10:36:11 PM  
If you want a lifetime of happiness, marry an ugly woman.
 
2017-09-13 10:36:18 PM  
So, if my marriage is not great, does that mean I'm better looking than my wife?

Sweet. She's pretty. I guess I must be way more hunka-hunka than I ever realized.
 
2017-09-13 10:36:52 PM  
Out kicking your coverage is real. I seen it. A bunch. Just because you find her superficially hot, doesn't mean she is.

You might ask yourself, "well, how did I get here?"

So pretty much the theory is that guys fark anything.. hot guys get chances to fark a lot of people, so hot guys cheat more, so relationships with hot guys fail more?
