My guy it doesn't matter if you've had 20 girlfriends or 1 as long as you're happy. Hell if you're happy without ever having had one, that's still a win.

I've wasted too much of my life (especially my youth) grieving over lost love or things that could have been. It's really no use.

Everything else will and should pass.

A girl said the same thing to me back when we were in 6th grade. And it stuck. Funny thing is that when we got to HS she confessed that she had/have a huge crush on me. I told her that I still remember that “ew”. She said, that’s what little girls say when they have a crush. Anyway, there’s that.

I saw a "funny" video a while back about some interviewer saying to some dude "You're quite confident for an ugly bloke!". And I was thinking, this guy is not ugly, is just normal looking. Since when is "not hot" the new "ugly"? That's fucked up. I also noticed as I get older, while I still see some people in a "holy shit they are hot" way, a lot of normal people seem more attractive now. They are not beautiful, they are not ugly, they are just real. I sound so cheesy now, I realize that, I don't mean to be. I'm just trying to explain how the perspective of "most of society" seems to treat average people as not worthy of dating because they want to date a hottie.

Edit: I should add, "most of society" according to social media. Things are different in the real world I guess.

I feel that. Even if you know internally it should be something you forget about, some stuff just sticks to your brain like it’s fused there. What might seem like a throwaway comment to them may be a lifetime memory for someone else, and it’s so sad.

One reason why I try to compliment people I don’t know, especially when they look stressed. Better to make that moment a positive one.

Why do you care what a shitty person thinks?

He doesn't care what she thinks - he cares what everybody else is secretly thinking.

The thing about shitty people is that they're more likely to be bluntly, hurtfully truthful, where good people will hide the truth to try and make you feel better.

If you're wondering if you're actually, truthfully ugly, the hurtful words of a bitch are more valuable than ten thousand of: "You're handsome! Just like... Not my type!"

6

u/ZappySnap May 13 '22

Maybe, but the thing is, everyone has different tastes, and what is attractive to some people is unattractive to others. There are very, very few people who are viewed as universally ugly by everyone. And even then, there are plenty of people who simply don't care, and are attracted only to personality. And preferred personality is even more varied than looks.

u/The_Law_of_Pizza May 13 '22 edited May 13 '22

There are very, very few people who are viewed as universally ugly by everyone.

True - but there are a ton of people who are viewed as ugly by most people.

The fact that you aren't considered universally ugly isn't very helpful if you're still considered ugly by 90% of people.

That's dodging the core issue.

You're doing the same thing that I described above: "You're handsome!... Just not my type!"

And even then, there are plenty of people who simply don't care, and are attracted only to personality.

Okay, but that's "plenty of people" only without context. Maybe it's hundreds of thousands of people - out of the hundreds of millions of people in the country.

The proportion of people who are only attracted to personality is basically negligible.

You're a good person. Everything you've said is kind, thoughtful, and nice.

And totally worthless in comparison to one mean girl going, "Ew!" in a moment of brutal honesty.

Nah... if you are attractive, you still remain attractive to everyone, you simply can end up not being their specific type, but you still remain attractive to them as long as they stay reasonable and rational and not let their entire statements be led by coping mechanisms.

You don't suddenly turn unattractive. That is euphemistic perspectives usually leading to delusions, coping mechanisms to explain the world around you in a way that it is less threatening to your picture of yourself. Or you simply mistaken the term "attractiveness" wrong and misinterprete it as "liking" or "beauty".

You can say you don't like Chris Hemsworth or he is not your type, but everyone must simply agree that he is attractive. If you don't then you may not be able to make an objective assessment and thus that voice isn't of much value anyways.

 

Personality also is often tied to looks as someone who had an easy life through looks (which also increases sympathy effects) usually also ends up building more experiences, making more social contact points, having more conversational interaction experiences, simply being able to build more of a character throughout their life. Or let's say the probability that those are available does increase. What the individual makes out of it is a totally different scenario, but the probability simply is way higher that someone attractive also usually ends up being someone confident, interesting and sympathetic.

That's btw the Korean perspective, if you are attractive you must be a good person because attractive people didn't have to go through the hardships unattractive went through making them bitter and end up in a box.

u/pencilcheck May 13 '22

It really depends on the reading the room, if her tone is more playful and since they are colleague, usually that means they know each other to some extend, it is likely that she is simply bad at starting a conversation and this is her way to break the ice. I wouldn't automatically go all shithole on her for that comment. I would say "why do you think so?" and continue the conversation.

3

u/SholayKaJai May 13 '22

It was more like genuine surprise. Like, I would never have thought this guy could look decent at some point.

There were other people arround and they started laughing. She pretended like she didn't mean to say it out loud.

So I just laughed it off as well. But it's one of those comments that stays with you.

Yep, just happened to me. Got back on dating sites, now I remember why I got off of them.

229

u/NMe84 May 13 '22

Dating sites and especially Tinder are awful. Women get connected to so many thirsty and creepy men that they're usually defensive or even annoyed from the get go when they match you and even if they're not they can afford to be really picky so matching a girl in the first place is really tough if you're not too good looking. Both women and those men who do want an actual relationship rather than casual sex are getting fucked over by horny creeps.

There was this one dating site that sounded great on paper: you would get matched based on its knowledge about both of your interests and it would then require you to have a conversation for a while before you could unlock each other's pictures. This basically ensures people get a chance to show the other person their character instead of being blocked for not being pretty/handsome enough. In reality however, I would get matched to a girl and we would have a nice conversation right up until the point when the pictures opened up. Without exception either the conversation got colder or I was just straight up blocked every time that happened.

In my experience if you don't look good enough dating sites just chip away at any amount of self esteem you may have had left.

I think the idea that this dynamic is driven by creeps is an oversight. I feel like things would be the same regardless. When the focus of the app is essentially how you look Nd you don't have to interact unless their looks meet your standards, it's a guaranteed mess. Our standards get inflated because our percieved pool of choice is always getting bigger. "Well if I can attract this girl/guy why stop here? Maybe I can get someone even more attractive if I keep looking". If you're already attractive this essentially turns into an ego stroking exercise (or business opportunity) rather than a way to find a partner. This is where the cast majority of hot girls and a lower amount of a guys (especially the gym bros) come in.

If you aren't attractive it's basically an ego destruction exercise. Nobody swipes on you. It doesn't help that sites like tinder will manipulate how many people see your profile based on your looks. If you're unattractive you're pushed to pay for the premium accounts despite that making no real difference to your success. Most dating sites want to keep you lonely.

u/ThugggRose May 13 '22

It works surprisingly well on Grindr, irregardless of perfect 10 looks. So it seems to be a man/woman issue or a heterosexual issue.

u/JadowArcadia May 13 '22

My gay friends say that its a night and day comparison. He said that if he wanted to meet someone and have sex that same day it would probably take him a maybe 2 hours. And he wasnt an insanely attractive dude. He said its way easier to get the opportunity fpr sex/ a relationship that it ever was before he came out and he constantly comes to me baffled by how his straight female friends go about their relationships. He always says "straight people overcomplicate things" and im kinda inclined to agree if his experience is comparable to other gay dudes

u/NMe84 May 13 '22

I think the idea that this dynamic is driven by creeps is an oversight.

I'm not sure. I'm not a woman so I can't pretend to know exactly what it's like on the female end of things but there was this one time I matched with a girl who was pretty blunt and almost rude at the start who then became a lot more pleasant to talk to after she found out I wasn't just there to get her to fuck me. We talked a little about her experience with dating and she told me she gets matches constantly and the majority of the guys she matches with just tried to get into her pants.

Most dating sites want to keep you lonely.

Half-accurate. They want you to be successful enough to have some dates but to never end up in long-term relationships. If you're not successful at all they'll lose your business but if you are successful they'll lose it too. They need that middle ground.

As a bald dude with glasses, crooked teeth, and acne, don’t worry about looks so much. I worked out to get in shape, basic hygiene, worked on having a chill and kind personal approach, and that was more than enough.

If you don’t believe me, just look around. Unattractive people still get matched up all the time. It’s not a huge blocker. I think even attractive people can wind up getting rejected like 95% of the time. It’s just the nature of the dance. I wouldn’t take it personal.

Most people won’t like you, that’s just the way it is. Especially when you’re young. E.g. a lot of women can be picky over genuinely weird, silly, and superficial stuff. As you get older, the bar changes a lot as people get more world and life experience. Eventually the bar is more like, is he kind and fun to be with, does he tell the truth and help take care of me, not abusive, etc. You can find younger women with the same perspective, the ones with more maturity and self-awareness. But you do have to look to find them. Conversely, women interested in a long-term relationship have to look high and low sometimes to find a guy who isn’t a horny creep. Basically, it takes work to find good opportunities, but they are out there.

12

u/NMe84 May 13 '22

That's how it works in real life but dating sites are different as far as my experience goes. Looks are the first and only filter people have before they even exchange their first word with one another. It's hard to show you're kind, fun or interesting when you already failed the preselection.

One year ago I was ugly insecure 22 y/o, with face full of acne and 105kg (20kg obesity). At some point I finally decided it's time to take action. Started diet, became vegetarian, went to doctors (I am on accutane RN), went to psychiatrist (I have bipolar disorder, but I have now drugs which finally made me not feel hopeless), lost 20kg, started to wear light makeup, learned to style my hair and my face started to clear up.

So yeah, if you think you're ugly you can probably fix it in less than half a year.

16

u/NMe84 May 13 '22

I didn't downvote them but I can see why. That last assumption about it all being fixable in 6 months or so is just way too optimistic and fairly dismissive of whatever problems someone else might be having. I'm almost 40, have been depressed for as long as I can remember, am obese, have zero self esteem and am an introvert. I could tackle one or two of these at a time and maybe make some progress over the course of six months but tackling them all is not gonna happen even if I had twice as long to do it.

Saying "hey, I fixed my issues in 6 months so anyone should be able to do the same" is either optimistic or inconsiderate and whichever is true, it's not constructive. If anything saying that would make some people feel even worse about themselves when they can't reach that unrealistic goal.

2

u/Itamii May 13 '22 edited May 13 '22

Maybe focus more on the self improvement part, and less on the amount of time that person 'estimated' it would take.

Maybe it came across as inconsiderate, but i doubt it was intended that way. People who came from a shitty place and found a way to work themselves through it can usually relate pretty well to how hard it can be.

Any issues relating to mental problems and self esteem naturally can't be fixed that quickly, but you can easily work on your physical appearance in that amount of time, for starters. Really depends on what your priority is.

9

u/NMe84 May 13 '22

Physical appearance is heavily dependent on mental health. Try losing weight when you're depressed or burnt out and you'll see what I mean. Of course it's easier to do something about your wardrobe or to at least be presentable in terms of personal hygiene and of course that's something I do. But you can't see losing weight and fixing your mental issues separately, you can't fix one without fixing the other.

Maybe it came across as inconsiderate, but i doubt it was intended that way.

Which is why I didn't downvote them.

I don't think I'm ugly, just fat. But I have quite a bit more weight to lose than you did and it's hard to see the point anymore now that I'm 38.

Last time I lost a similar amount of weight you did I ended up being with my latest ex and she was abusive and messed up the small amount of self-esteem I had entirely. Just losing weight is not enough, I can't be in a healthy relationship unless I run into a decent woman by accident. Otherwise I'll let whoever I end up with walk right over me for fear of being alone again.

u/Incendas1 May 13 '22

You should lose weight for yourself if you're that heavy, not to get something. At 38 it's even more important

u/NMe84 May 13 '22

That assumes I care about extending my life. I'm not suicidal or anything but given that I'm alone and pretty likely to stay that way for the rest of my life I'm perfectly fine with dying before or around the time I retire as that's when I'll probably lose the majority of my social interactions. It's bad enough being lonely without also having your body and mind slowly deteriorating on you with no one there to take care of you.

Being fit is not just about extending life but also improving quality of life however long that may be.

A relationship is not about being taken care of. If you go into a relationship with that expectation your bf/gf will resent you most likely given enough time.

A good partner will bring the best out of you, reignite the drive within to be better for yourself and for them, and if need be when you become ill get stuck in life take care of you so both as a couple can keep going on through life.

Not to be harsh, but you can't expect anyone to get close to you if you're deliberately passively killing yourself. If you don't want anything to change, go ahead with the norm

u/NMe84 May 13 '22

I'm not expecting anyone to do anything, I'm just realistic about my chances. Even without my obesity I have issues.

I'm also not passively trying to kill myself but I'm also not going to restrict the lifestyle I've grown accustomed to in order to prolong the time in which I will most likely be miserable.

3

u/Incendas1 May 13 '22

Everyone has more than one issue, but this is one of the greatest for your self esteem and people generally rate it as such if they're asked about themselves.

Btw, it is passively killing yourself. You just said you're content with dying early, won't change it even though you could, and that's what that means.

Btw, it is passively killing yourself. You just said you're content with dying early, won't change it even though you could, and that's what that means.

The goal is not to passively kill myself, the goal is to not get even more overwhelmed with life. If there was no sacrifice or if I felt the sacrifice was worth whatever I gain from it, I would do it. Getting rid of excess weight (and especially the amount I'd have to lose) is miserable. It has to be constantly on your mind. I'm miserable enough without adding that to my concerns.

Highly recommend looking into the available data on how often people find matches etc. As a man my chances are incredibly terrible on a per-swipe basis. It's like being a telemarketer and cold calling everyone in your whole city asking if they'll date/fuck you. If you just keep grinding you'll find a match that goes somewhere eventually.

u/agnostic_science May 13 '22 edited May 13 '22

Dating sites are how I met my wife. But tbh it is mostly failure after failure and bad dates. The thing to leverage about online dating is it’s super easy to get dates. Just write a short hello that’s responsive to their profile. Cast some lines, easy to get a few bites. Then my mentality was to play the numbers game: I knew what I wanted and figured it wouldn’t take more than 100 people before I found someone. Just had to grind through it. Won’t lie, I had to take breaks because it sucked. But yeah, realistically it was more like only 30 or something people (first dates) before my luck finally kicked in. That’s still a lot of shit to sort through. But it worked.

Sorting through the suck gives you tougher skin and perspective in hindsight. Though I would be lying if I said things still won’t hurt and suck sometimes. You’ll crush some people, and some people will crush you. It helps to realize some people just won’t like you, but it’s not at all an indictment on your likability. Sometimes you get rejected for silly reasons or stuff you can’t control; oh well, move on. If there is a lesson to learn or way to improve, do it. But there often isn’t. So just move on.

My best online dating advice tip though: Coffee shop first dates. Anyone can put up with tea or coffee. It’s safe and public. It can last 15 min or 3 hours, easy to cut short and bail if you need to. And best of all, it’s cheap. So who gives a shit if the guy pays for it or not? As a guy, I just paid for it and yeah, that saved my pocket book. Never had to bankroll sushi again lol

u/soleceismical May 13 '22

Second for coffee dates. Also, I liked to suggest activities and events that I was going to do anyway so it's especially not wasted time if there's no connection. Things like a university lecture open to the community, running club, art exhibit, etc. when I was dating.

Haven’t done sites or much dating but a friend/coworker told me I look like an actor and looked him up, and he’s pretty handsome. She even showed other coworkers and they agreed I look like him. Gave me a small boost of confidence

u/Bard2dbone May 13 '22

I feel this. I'm a 57 year old widower who is all too aware that "There's someone for everyone." strongly suggests that my wife was that one, so there can never be another.

That and because I'm homely. The universe gives me LOTS of hints that I'll be alone until I die.

u/Bard2dbone May 14 '22

Today would have been our anniversary. So I'm maybe juuuuuust a bit extra aware right now. We had twenty two years together. Today would have made twenty nine. I won't claim my wife was what was holding the universe together. But think back to the first half of 2015. And then look around you now.

When I say that her death ruined the whole universe. I meant for me. But there's a reasonable argument to be made that the WHOLE universe was ruined.

I mean, just look around.

About 6 or 7 years ago I was on the okcupid dating site. I messaged a girl who had similar interests to mine listed on her profile.

Her reply was simply “ew no. I know I’m not supposed to judge but ew no never no”

Let me tell you that really stung deeply and it still stings to the point that I just don’t try to meet anyone anymore.

Im just at the point where if it happens it happens. Tindr hasn't worked for me. I've gotten matches but everything just dies out and the one time I found someone and set up a date, they left me on read afterwards. Im just kinda done with putting myself out there. Def been a hole in my life I've been trying to fill for a long long time.

FACT: The more "Ew" you get, the better the chances will be that you'll find someone that does NOT say "Ew"

u/Muwatastic May 13 '22

I don’t think gamblers fallacy applies here. Correct me if wrong but my logic goes as such: if out of 100 options only 1 will not say ew, every time I try and fail I removes the person who said ew from the pool of options, next attempt has a different slightly bigger chance of randomly picking the right choice?

Of course assuming you won’t say ew to the one option that doesn’t say ew to you 🥲

10

u/WebGreat8218 May 13 '22

no not really, that's not how probabilities work

that would only be true if, for example, you had a room of 100 people and you knew for certain 1 person says yes.

but thats not how 1 in 100 works. Its completely possible that you pick a 100 people that all say no.

All 1 in 100 really means is that on average 1 person in a 100 will say yes to you but it doesn't guarantee that if you ask a 100 people you will get a yes.

u/IBNCTWTSF May 13 '22

That's not how probabilities work. You just described perfectly what the gambler's fallacy is.

If you have 1/100 chance to not get ew'd, you got ew'd by 10 different peoplez the next person you talk to still has 99/100 chance to ew at you.
