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.

cryinoutloud: 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!

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.


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.

GrendelMk1: CocoNutz: fatalvenom: As a decently attractive guy who is a complete asshole and a narcissist, they're probably right.

When a man knows he's attractive he's pretty much no touch material for me. Every hot guy I've known has been a borderline douchenozzle with expectations of women that are so tiresome.

Huh.

I made the mistake of dating a hot woman (she was absolutely infatuated with my scars* and motorcycle) and yeah, hot people are a pain in the ass. I'm not short (5'10"), skinny as fark (135 lbs) and the only thing keeping me out of the "jesus carp you're ugly" competition is that I can grow halfway decent facial hair. Which doesn't cover the scar down the left side of my face.

I should have known scoring a tall, leggy, european sophisticate was a trap.

Wasn't long before she was treating me like staff. We're no longer together. We lasted as long as we did because heck, I was already in there, and I was getting crazy person sex ;)

If their best feature is their looks, DON'T unless you have an exit plan. Mine ended up including a lawyer. She lost, but it still cost me.

*road rash and work related injuries from forest fires and the oilpatch, plus a few recreational injuries. Apparently stories with visual aids will get you laid.


As a man with a facial scar I can absolutely vouch for these results. It does have to be of a certain size though. Little I got something lanced or hit my head as a kid scars don't cut it. A good three to furr inches and not too sloppy. I'm sporting one on my chin that more than one woman has complimented (which is odd--"uh, yeah, thanks... I injured myself terribly).

Probably an evolved preference, in the past men with scars had survived battles, tough hunts, and the possible infections resulting. We were good stock. Now it just means we have dangerous hobbies/poor judgment, but evolution hasn't caught up-- ha HA!

Gawdzila: Theaetetus: 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.

In your rush to make this article entirely about dieting, you apparently skipped the paragraphs where they noted that:

" The study had "Beauty and the Beast" results - women were happier with less genetically blessed hubbies, who compensated in the relationship with acts of kindness, including giving gifts, sexual favors or completing extra housework, according to Esquire UK.


One of these things is not like the other... I actually read the study. Not just "Esquire UK". The actual study said none of that.

That there is virtually no straight female equivalent to Nuts magazine, or the abject failure of Playgirl -- how else do we explain it, other than that women are simply not as interested in, or as titillated by, staring at naked men, as men are by staring at naked women?

Yes, the hallmark of good biological science is looking at whether a product fails in the market. It couldn't have something to do with advertising, societal pressures regarding female sexuality, or other external pressures - nope, must be evolution.

Between getting your science from market results and reading Esquire for your study analysis... Well, I have to say, welcome to Fark, Mr. Trump.
