AMoonHawk saidbeauty is in the eye of the beholder .... I've seem some really hot looking guys, with what I thought were some real uggos ... but to each their own ... there's someone for everyone out there, just keep looking and don't expect everyone to fall all over you ... but you do have to be confident in yourself and you do have to like yourself no matter what anyone else thinks ... because it is what you think about you that really matters.
I see a lot of men I wouldn't consider very attractive with blonde models taller than they are. I've seen drop-dead gorgeous guys with morbidly obese women with bad skin.
Do you know why? The guy who maybe isn't the greatest-looking or maybe below average height, scores the model because he tried harder and she's probably sick of douchebags. Not saying all young attractive men are assholes, but a lot of them are.
Also he probably makes an effort to dress nicely and has a nice job.
It isn't compensation because I find a lot of the time these men actually did put their all into what they do and if they want a beautiful wife/husband, they got it. When you put that much effort into anything you pretty much get what you want no matter what you look like, lol. It's all about virtues like honesty and integrity and whatnot. We can go on and on about "inner beauty" but at the end of the day it comes down to virtue. That and having a good sense of humor.
In general, what's definitely comforting is that it basically doesn't matter what a guy -looks like- as long as he has the same lifestyle and can make you laugh.
Also I heard somewhere that attractive people tend to rely on their looks and don't often have to hone certain essential skills -- probably bullshit though.
