Why Attractive Women Gladly Date Ugly Men (And Probably Even Prefer Them)

Verena von Pfetten explains why attractive women gladly date ugly men (and probably even prefer them.)

It’s a pretty well known fact that most women – attractive women – will happily date ugly men. We see it on TV — in shows like King of Queens, though I would probably argue that Kevin James is kind of a stud, and really, that’s exactly the point I plan on making– and we see it in our friends.

  1. Ever notice it *rarely* works the other way, attractive men dating ugly women?

    What does this mean?

  2. What about Bill and Hillary Clinton?

  3. LOL

    Would never vote for her, but looking back at photos of when they were married…I’d hardly classify her as ‘ugly’. (and really, he might be charismatic, but hardly a handsome guy)

    Any other examples?

  4. Hillary not ugly? Have you seen her college photos? Bill’s not movie star handsome – who is? – but he’s handsome in an Elvis, country boy way.

    Another political example might be George H.W. Bush and Barbara. He wasn’t a bad-looking man when he was a young.

  5. OK. So far you’ve offered up political examples. Maybe there’s some kind of exemption thing going on there.

    Seriously; how many handsome male friends do you know that ended up with ‘ugly’ women.

    To me, this is a fascinating dichotomy, that attractive women can *often* be seen with ‘hardly their equals in looks’ men, while the equivalent almost never happens with men.
