Marry someone unattractive and be happier. So goes the theory, that is. I have heard this for a long time and I always wondered why someone would want to be in a relationship with someone they aren’t attracted to. I mean, isn’t the point of staying in love and in a committed relationship? When they are driving you to the brink of insanity, you get distracted by their hotness and get over it?
Of course, I’m being a little facetious, but I truly don’t get why people encourage singles to “marry ugly” or “marry down”. You can grow to love someone but if the strong desire to rip their clothes off isn’t there, is it even worth jumping the broom?
Maybe I am being naive, here. What do you guys think? Can you be happy with a person you consider unattractive? How would it work?
What would happen if we all dated any ole’ scraggamuffin, simply because we wanted to be coupled up. How long would it take before reality kicks in?
Have you ever dated someone you were not attracted to, hoping to develop an attraction later on? How did it work out?
Do you think that dating hot people brings more heartache/headache or is that another myth?
