Why women date ugly men

01 September 2016, 11:02Shakila Alivitsa

Abuja - There is this time I almost did actually. It is not that he is ugly, but this guy will not pass the standard of what you would consider handsome. And as a woman, as you mature there are just some things you can do without. Notice I have not said older so that someone can say it is because of desperation. I have used the word mature because women as young as 25 can choose to overlook the handsome playboy for someone more serious if she is ready and he shows that he is. Which is the point.

Handsome men never approach beautiful women by the way; I am assuming that they are assuming that she is as vain as they are or they are more afraid of rejection than the average looking guy. The average guys date beautiful women because he just approached her with a nothing to lose attitude. That is why they win most of the time, at times men, it is not the money if it is there. Stop assuming a woman is taken because you did not approach her and when another man does and she is taken you now assume it is because of his money.

He might have been the first for a very long time. Why do we date ugly men?

We cannot have two peacocks in the same house

I know a peacock is male but I hope you get what I am going for. Women need a man that will put her on a pedestal. No matter how average she is and how up there he is. Even if he does not do it, she will be more in love when he does it. Now this handsome one already looking down from the top of the pedestal, how will he put her on it? Answer: Never! It will be a constant push and pull.

An ugly who knows he is scoring with a beautiful women will treat her amazing

He will be concerned about her, look out for her, treat her so well because he wants to continue pleasing her. A handsome man is not bothered because he is busy with 10 other women in his messages he is talking to. Basically, his focus will never be on her but he will be giving her divided attention if he ever does.

Handsome man with no focus, not so handsome but knows what he is doing

This one is a no brainer especially if the lady is planning for something a bit more permanent. Why would she choose to chase someone who is not even aware of himself when there is this one chasing her with his act together?

You will not have trouble with women always popping out of nowhere

His phone is dry, for lack of a better word,. You are the only one in his life if not 2 or 3 more that came before you. And that is when we are overestimating. Handsome men will always be chased even if they are giving the women nothing. The phone will always be ringing and he will always be stepping out and you will always be insecure especially if he is never upfront.
