reboundstudent Posted October 13, 2011 Share Posted October 13, 2011 There is some debate about whether "leagues" exist. But for argument's sake, let's say that generally similar types of people stick together. (Beautiful people hang around with beautiful people, quirky-but-pretty people hang out with quirky-but-pretty people, beautiful-on-the-inside makes friends with other beautiful-on-the-inside.) Obviously, if someone has a big advantage in some other part of themselves besides physical attractiveness (amazing personality or wealthy for example) they can break the mold, but for most people, they hang out with people similar to themselves. So, should people who DON'T have some big advantage try to transcend leagues? In my case, I have a decent-but-average personality, a strong intelligence, a very good job, and bad looks. Overall, I'd put myself in the "Beautiful on the inside" league. I've been on a few dates with a guy who has a very charismatic personality, is incredibly physically attractive, and lives with his parents while still finishing college (at age 28. He has some severe learning disabilities.) My friends (and I'm kind of this opinion too) think that being in a serious relationship with him would be a very bad idea because we are outside each other's leagues. I am no where near his league in terms of looks or social skills, and he is outside my league in terms of education and financial independence. My friends say that it's too much inequality; and furthermore, that dating a guy who is more attractive than you are physically ALWAYS ends badly, especially if he's a big flirt (which this guy is.) What's your guys' experience? Do you think this is true that you shouldn't stray outside your league? Link to comment
