I've been approached by someone (through a mutual friend, of course - because I guess she can't be fucking straightforward with me) who wants to go out. She's perfectly nice, smart, and all that. I get the feeling her personality and mine wouldn't mesh so well. She's the extremely active type, while I would rather slam my hand in a car door twenty times than go to a club. But you never know about how such things will work out until you try them, right?
I understand you, OP. I'm like that - what most of the world seems to consider 'beautiful' doesn't really do much for me... and the girls that I find attractive would probably be considered average at best by most others.
Yeah, what most people find attractive turns me off too. Women like that just feel all phoney and fake to me.
You sound like you might not like it. But try it anyway! You won't really lose much just trying it.
I'll take it a bit further. I used to dream about dating Asian (in particular Japanese) women and eventually marrying one. However, destiny took a wide right and decided to focus my interests in a Mexican girl (a culture I used to be not interested in). At first, she wasn't very attractive and really was the type of girl who sits at home and watches tv after school (hoodie and sweats in other words). After a year though, I got to know her better...and she actually started appearing more feminine. We started dating, and before you know it...it's been 8 years and still with her. Now there's plans of marriage gasps...LOL.
