  • because the pretty girls may think that the "ugly boy" is pretty. Looks don't matter.
  • Perhaps they are attracted to a different quality. Sometimes attractive men treat pretty girls like a trophy to show off rather than a person. Maybe they find more substance in the relationsip with the other guys.
  • I've always wondered that myself?
  • always? that is a bit general. but, if they seem to favour them, it may be because the "pretty" boys think too highly of themselves to care for the girls, while the less conventionally handsome ones get a chance to show their real characters.
  • Where exactly are you getting this information? I guess girls that DO go out with ugly guys do it because: a)They like the guy's personality. b)They do it to make themselves feel better. c)They feel sorry for him. or d)The guy isn't really that ugly, he just LOOKS ugly next to the girl.
  • Girls don't want other girls hitting on their dates.
  • Women love men who have a sense of humour. A lot of the time, if a guy hasn't had it "easy" with women due to great looks, he has developed other area's of his personality, such as his sense of humour, to "compensate". I'd much rather date a guy that cracked me up than some muscle-bound pretty boy dullard.
  • I do not believe you can generalize that at all. In my lifetime I have seen very outwardly attractive women with very handsome men as well as men who by "traditional standards" would not be considered handsome or cute. I have seen the same with men and the women they date or even marry. And I have seen couples where both were "attractive" and where both were "not stereotypically attractive. There are all kinds of combinations! The wise person looks for not just what is on the outside but more importantly what the other person has to offer as well such as sense of humor, intelligence, common interests, moral beliefs, warmth, tolerance, and other things that make ANY relationship, no matter what people look like outwardly, the kind of relationships that have real depth and quality to them and which have the best chance of lasting over the long term. "Good looks" and physical appearance change and fade over time. A person's true character and personality and traits rarely do. If you can find someone whose "insides" are very attractive to you, chances are you will still be attracted to them physically, even if they are not the poster girl or boy for a fashion magazine.
  • Maybe the "hot" guys are too intimidated to ask them out or the "hot" guys are too busy playing the part to be able to give the pretty girl the attention the "ugly" boys do. And lastly maybe they guy you consider "really ugly" has great personality, brains, charm, wit and shows the respect that the "hot" boys may not.
  • Because their personalities match their attractiveness.
  • Do they always ? I don't think so.
  • My sister dated a large guy 'cause she has a terrible fear of the man she sleeps with calling her fat. He can't do that, 'cause he's even bigger! Now that I've put that image into everyone's heads (not to mention mine), here's my answer: Good looking guys are usually jackasses. They can probably sleep with whoever, whenever they want. Less good looking guys (such as myself) make for better longer-term relationships.
  • becase the 'hot' guys are too intimidated to ask them out (they think tehy will be turned down) and so the 'hot' girl starts to think that she is ugly, and therefore is much gratified when an 'ugly' boy (who may not care if he is rejected) asks her out for the first time. she then thankfully accepts, not caring what he looked like. this is a purely hypothetical answer being rather ugly myself, but it makes sense. also gereralisations are there for a reason - they usually have a basis in fact.
  • Opposites Attract.
  • yeah. i think its a combination of things. i agree that pretty girls dont always know they are pretty, because people will tell ANY girl that she is pretty and pretty girls know this too....so when, because guys are "intimidated" or whatever, cute guys don't go after them, they assume they are ugly, and start magnifying flaws, developing BDD and stuff! they date these "ugly" guys, who they think are probably the best looking guys they can get. and also, it probably feels really good knowing that your guy definitely thinks you re hot. my fiance is a really really hot guy with a perfect personality, sense of humor, all that....and in all honesty, (although id never trade the love of my life for the world :D) i wish more than anything that he were less attractive, physically. i feel constantly threatened by every woman on the planet, and basically, thats just a really uncomfortable way to live. an ugly guy = no worries. dating a hot guy kinda sucks! but i'm absolutely madly in love :/!
  • The real concern is "Why aren't the pretty girls daring me?" Why be concerned about the fortunes of others if you are not envious?
  • okay sometimes the guy may not be the cutest in the world but thaqt is not what matters...itz how he treats ya...i'm not saying ugly guys, i'm just sayin i would rather date a guy that is okay-semi cute with a great personality than a hott guy that is a bastard
  • What the situation here is, is that these "ugly" boys you speak of aren't as self-centered and don't focus on themselves when it comes to relationships, they feel as though they have to compensate for their "ugliness" by not letting their ego run their lives, and it turns out that these "ugly boys" are 99% of the time a good choice to date.
  • I think part of it might be because they really appriciate you more. These guys aren't ego tripping and girls dont feel like they really have to prove anything or be super entertaining at the risk of feeling not good enougth. This is going to sound really really bad but there is a comfort lvl that arises from going out with someone who you know you could probably do better than. You're not constantly worried if he likes you, you know he does, and you can worry more if you like him. And trust me if you're dating him and he knows you could do better hes going to make you feel like a goddess. And to tell you the truth its so easy to connect with them on a friendship lvl too cause you can really let your guard down knowing they have a pretty high opinion of you.
  • While looks are usually what initially draws us to other people that is just what gets the ball rolling. Beauty fades over time so many women look for things like a good sense of humor, intelligence, similar interests, life goals, and the way they are treated. Responsibility, reliability, and stability are also huge selling points.
  • Maybe did you think about that they don't care only about looks you stupid.LOL
  • ALOT OF UGLY PEOPLE ARE FUNNY SO DATS PROBABLY WHY
  • cuz ugly boys are nicer.
  • Could they be in need of an eye exam.?
  • B/c alot of the time the "Hot" guys are self centered pricks, and the "ugly" (i would say less attractive) guys will try a lot harder in a relationship
  • To be honest, I think I'm considered fairly attractive, although not gorgeous or anything. I've dated several guys who would be considered outwardly unattrative - but what drew me was their inner qualities, like humor or compassion or intelligence. I think also that a lot of very good looking guys tend to realize how good looking they are and become people who are not as nice to date. Not always, but quite a few.
  • I think people have different views on what's pretty and what's ugly. These pretty girls you speak of may be included.
  • I don't think that this is the norm but some girls do it because generally speaking the "ugly" guys truly know how to treat, repsect, and appreciate women.
  • Because they know they will be treated right and ugly men hardly ever cheats on his partner,so there is the reason for good looking girls who go out with ugly men.
  • Because there genuine values may stand out more. Ugly guys can at times tend to be more loving. They are sometimes more serious about long term relationships. Cute guys can very much be the same, it's just that girls are more attracted to them and there girl may get jealous. I don't know<LOL<LOL<LOL. Some cute guys, have just as much going for themselves. I just like commitment.................and that's all I'm worried about.
  • maybe because they are not shallow and superficial and like the guys for WHO they are.
  • the guys have cash.
  • The guys that are good looking are mostly looking to have only sex with the good looking female. Good looking guys think they are all that and that they can have any women in the world... (This is a general answer... there are good looking guys who are nice. and there are ugly one who are pigs) But mostly i find that the good looking are pigs and ugly or some what cute are nice...
  • I'd rather go out with a guy who's less attractive, and not full of himself, than a guy who's gorgeous, but can't stop talking about how much he works out.
  • First off, prettypirate's answer was really good. I've found that greek-god looking men have far less to offer when it comes to the important things in a relationship. (ie. intelligence, trustworthiness, sense of homour, etc) When you are with someone who can't carry a meaningful conversation, or stop looking in the mirror long enough to look at YOU, the novelty wears off fast.
  • the reason why they dating with the ugly boys because the girls thought that they have sense of humor and good personality.well, being a cute guys don't seem pretty much.they always be playful always get attention.i rather date with a good personality and sense of humor.
  • because they prob are not ugly to them. Everybody has different taste beauty is in the eye of the beholder. and believe it or not, not all people care about looks, alot of people are in for it in the personality
  • Well i'm with a pretty girl at the moment and have been for a little while:) and i've found i can make a joke or two from time to time! Haha, often at the innapropriate time but nevertheless, maybe its true - you DON'T have to be a muscle-bound pretty boy dullard! I think girlfriends do appreciate it once you're with eachother for a little while though! ;)
  • SOME pretty girls date ugly boys because they're not shallow or the ugly boy must be prettty rich.
  • some people can see beyond the physical
  • Because pretty boys want to date themselves...
  • They don't always do that.
  • because they look further than appearance alone and aren't as shallow as many people think?
  • personality goes a long way. plus from my own experience a guy who knows he's hot can be annoyingly cocky and not as fun to hang out with
  • Well, first, they don't "always". And maybe it's because all the good looking ones are jerks because they know they're good looking.
  • 1) Probability. The 1% prettiest girls will date all kinds of boys and only 1% will be from the 1% prettiest boys. The others will just *look* ugly. 2) "you'll understand why lads don't always go for the prettiest girls: pure fear. Boys assume the better looking the girl, the harder she'll be to pull. So there's a higher risk you'll end up feeling stupid or left out in the cold. Plus, there are always decent quality alternatives. The girls who attract most attention will be attractive, but approachable, and not necessarily stunning. That's why the most beautiful people are often desperately unhappy and lonely."

  • &quot;Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". It's hard to define beauty by looks alone. Others consider beauty as a physical thing yet some dig deeper into others and find beauty from what's within.
  • Well, beauty is only skin deep. Some of the so=called pretty women may not have that much upstairs in the brain department. Or, they may be really intelligent. Don't always judge a book by its cover.
  • why do people ask such subjective questions?
  • Where does this happen? Send me directions plz.
  • Iam dating a guy that is not the most fortunate looking guy in the looks department. The reason why iam dating him is because he sees me for me not my beauty but the real me on the inside and that is priceless..
  • I'm an average looking chubby guy and was married to a ramp model. It wasn't all it was cracked up to be, she was obsessed with her looks and mostly miserable, dieting, self conscious and carrying enough baggage to sink a cargo ship. We got divorced and I met a great woman more like me, not a ramp model, attractive and voluptuous - a wonderful person and an incredible friend. I am now happy. It's one thing to fantasise, but the reality is often quite different.
  • girls go for guys that are not so attractive because girls know they can get any good looking guy if they are good looking themselves so they go for a the not so attractive guy because they are insecure and dont want a hot guy because they would be worried about the guy cheating on them and when they start talking to the not so attractive guy they start liking them for who they are.
  • I understand there are ulgy men in the world, but there are sexy guys too. I think looking is not very important. Pretty girls probably like those men because of their attitude towards those girls. Being nice to a girl can make the girl like the guy. Noone is perfect, but just like men, their are ugly girls in the world too, and they date sexy mens. So, I think look is always not important.
  • funny you should ask. Because the ugly boys are nice and funny and know how to treat us well!
  • I guess cause ugly boys ask them out - they have nothen to lose right
  • Because the "ugly boys" were not intimidated by the other person's good looks.
  • Why do you assume things? Maybe the "pretty girl" doesn't think the guy you think is ugly is ugly. Maybe she thinks he's hot.
  • coz not everything is about looks believe it or not - personality can make someone look 10 times more attractive than you originally thought. plus a lot of hot guys are usually dickheads who don't appreciate the pretty girls that they have. girls realsie they are worth more than this and go for guys that want to be with them, that want to treat them well. Girl's are smart and go for this most of the time
  • I'm a pretty girl, and I don't date ugly boys. However, as a general rule, I would say that women are less shallow than men, or at least less concerned with physical appearance.
  • Because when a pretty girl like myself dates a hot guy, there are too many other women drooling over him and it's harder to trust him when I'm not around. With "ugly" boys, there is really no competition so I can take the time to really get to know the person without having him surrounded by women drooling over him. The key is to find a quality about a guy that you find sexy, and considering that in America there are far less guys that work out anyway than say in Europe, you can guarantee there are plenty of men out there who have spent time developing their other talents;)
  • Not only pretty girls but the average girl does too
  • I am answering prettypirate about this, well first of all u date them, because u dont want ur friends to be jealous of u for dating a handsom, cute dude... think of it that way...
  • I have no idea.
  • Because beyond attractiveness, there are things that are more valuable: Hardworking, ambitious, charisma, leadership, power. Believe me there are other things aphrodisiacal beyond a good-looking face. Who wants a great looking guy who is a loser in all other areas of his life. GOod-looks do not impress me much.
  • alot of it is based upon attitude. a non attractive guy must make up for his lack of looks in a different department. he must have a good attitude and confidence, girls think confidence is sexy.
  • Then why dont I get pretty girls?
  • personality?
  • most of the girls date ugly blacks in general cause it makes themselves feel better i think this is why white girl go crazy over ugly black boys
  • We're all ugly guys. Some are just uglier than others.
  • I don't....
  • If by "pretty" we are talking about girls with model / actress quality faces with or without the height,.. its probably for the qualities that "ugly boys" develop due to the fact they are ugly. Ugly boys might generally be more successful with school, career, etc and therefore although they might lack the genetics, they probably have some money and maybe status. They also might be an insecure little ass-wipe. A better question would be: If a pretty girl dates an ugly boy because he has money, status, humor, nice-guy-women-respecting qualities, would she equally have as much exotic, wild, orgasmic sex with him as she would with a really hot stallion who could make her sweat from 20 feet away? And would she as equally let the ugly guy into her body physically (sex, touching, kissing, spooning) as she would the hot guy?
  • so looks dont matter huh well if they dont matter then why do girls pay to much attention if theyre fat or ugly
  • always?? That is not always the case and when it is, then maybe it's because that pretty girl sees beyond beauty, which fades.
  • I don't think your being realistic with your opinion. Because every were I go in the city, whether I go to the work out gym, whether am at college.Every beautiful girl I see, is always dating a hansome good looking man, and every handsome guy is dating a very attractive girl. So at a certain point if your going to date good looking girls, I think looks to matter a bit. But still, looking good is just a bonus, you have to prove to the girl that you have a good personality, and that you will treat her well.So go work out in the gym a bit, dress nice, but the biggest of all, learn to be a good person and be good to the girl and treat her well, cause women look for sense of humour more than looks, so crack a few jokes once in a while.Good Luck
  • I am a very pretty ( so i've been told) girl, and the reason I date guys that people don't think are good-looking enough for me is the way that they treat me (like a queen!) Very good-looking guys are extremely self-centered and selfish.
  • i'm an ugly guy but pretty girls don't date me ... hmmm maybe i'm too ugly?
  • ...because looks truly aren't everything. Plus, everyone has different views of what's good looking and what's ugly, so that pretty girl might think that ugly boy is attractive even if others don't.
  • Ugliness is only in the eyes of the beholder. They know something you do not. this person may have the biggest heart in town and girls love that.
  • Out of necessity, ugly boys often develop other "talents" and "skills" desired by girls, that pretty boys don't think they need.
  • Some girls date an ugly guy to make her feel better about herself. And some girls may find a guy ugly at first and as they fall in love with what's on the inside, they fall in love with the outside, as well.
  • old question, new(ish) answer :) girls are differnt and attracted to differnt types of guys :) i know what you mean though. some people say im cute, and my bf isnt all that great looking, but we've kown each other forever and our personalitys work pretty well. we have fun, not to mention the fact looks dont last forever.
  • maybe because pretty girls need to feel important. maybe a guy who hasn't been fussed over will more likely be the humble one who does all the praising and a lot of times, pretty girls are self-absorbed and need that attention. she knows that the "ugly guy" will give that to her. very sad on her end.
  • The pretty girl probably doesn't have a daddy!
  • I think because pretty girl cant use handsome boys, and ugly boys will let them use him, just to be with her. To make him feel more important.
  • I think you should remove the word "always" from your question. People date all sorts of people.
  • Because a beautiful girl that feels good about herself does not need something to make her look good. She has nothing to prove to anyone because she already has it going on. Now needless to say, you have those girls that are decent looking, but bitches. Those are the ones that try to hard to impress everyone else because they are needy of attention, most of the time because they don't like who they are.
  • Because most of the good looking guys are too focused on loving themselves and not their girlfriend! lol nah but when you love someone you love their personality and that's what make women more attracted to average looking men!
  • Personality. Women are not just attracted to looks, they want a man they can talk to and laugh with. There are lots of hot guys dating women. I married one. :-)
