I saw that as the woman making a mistake or being stupid enough to fall for a guy like that.
I didn’t know that she could actually feel attracted to him for OTHER reasons.
And I've gotta say -- it DOES have something to do with their looks.
Akin to a beauty contest scorecard, a person's attractiveness is ranked from one to 10.
And generally, it's presumed that the beautiful Amazons among us (the eights, nines, and 10s) should only date each other -- while the "uglies" of the bunch (the twos, threes, and fours) must stick to their own Quasimodo kind.
Ten attractive single women are sitting at individual tables, each waiting expectantly to talk to him. 'I popped a mint in my mouth, fixed on my name tag and promptly fainted,' he confesses. In fact, he believes that he is so ugly that women won't want to spend even ten minutes with him, let alone allow him to prove what a lovable, loyal partner he might be.
It's a speed-dating night, and Stan has ten minutes to woo and charm each of the ten women. For the past two years, Stan has been writing a hugely popular blog about his experiences looking for love.
The reason why an ugly guy can have a hot girlfriend is that women can feel attracted to men for reasons other than looks.
