Why You Should Be Actively Looking To Date An “Ugly” Guy

It’s easy to get blinded by the hottie in the corner, but will he really be able to make you happy? Probably not. Ugly guys are the only way to go if you want a long and fulfilling relationship. Here’s why:

  1. Women who date to ugly guys are statistically more happy. According to a recent study, women who engage in relationships with men who are considered to be ugly or less attractive than average report a higher level of life satisfaction versus women who date beefed-up hotties. It’s a scientific study, so it must be right…
  2. Guys who date girls who are hotter than them are happier too. Dating an ugly guy is a win-win situation because men who date out of their league also report feeling more satisfied and happy with their lives versus men who date less attractive than average women. It could be because men don’t usually feel inferior when they’re the less attractive partner in a relationship the same way they would feel ashamed of having less money or success. Interesting.
  3. You’ll get the love and attention you deserve. So much is expected of you as a woman in the 21st century. You’re expected to be the perfect wife, a career driven bad-ass, an empathetic ear for your friends and to top it all off you’re supposed to look flawless while doing it. That’s a lot of pressure. Don’t you think you deserve a guy who worships you at your feet? I think so.
  4. He’ll always be afraid of losing you and will therefore put in more effort. As an ugly guy, he’s going to be thanking his lucky stars on the daily that you even bothered to look his way. He can’t believe that someone like you is interested in someone like him, so he’s going to take extra precautions as to not mess it up. This results in a more loving and comfortable relationship, at least on your end.
  5. He’ll be able to keep up with you intellectually. Ugly guys weren’t accepted with open arms in high school, so they did whatever they could to get attention from their classmates, especially girls. Over time they developed a cool sense of humor and put their focus on more intellectual pursuits resulting in a well-rounded, attractive personality. Ugly guys are able to join you in deep discussions and be sincerely interested in what you have to say without constantly changing the subject to how many reps of bicep curls they can do at the gym. What more could a girl want?
  6. Everyone knows that ugly guys are better in bed. Again, ugly guys didn’t get anything handed to them in life so they had to find a way to get what they want and dominate over the hunky meat-heads who bullied them all their life. They probably spent a ton of time researching sex techniques and studying up on how to give a girl a mega orgasm so that when they eventually get the chance to be with a babe like you, they’ll know exactly what to do. Long story short, they know how to please you in bed and will put in all the elbow grease necessary to get the job done.
  7. You don’t have to worry about some girl stealing him from you. He’s not exactly a looker and you’ll notice that unlike the hot guys you’ve dated, he doesn’t get a lot of female attention. This is a huge relief to you because now you don’t have to worry about any sex-hungry girls just using him for his body…he’s all yours for as long as you’ll have him.
  8. You don’t have to worry when you eventually decided to let yourself go. Let’s be real, you’re not gonna be able to look like a babe-show your whole life and there’s comfort in knowing that even if you put on a bit of weight or let yourself go, he’ll still think you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to him.
  9. Guys who don’t care what they look like are often more masculine. If he’s ugly, chances are he hasn’t put in the effort to go to the gym or get a cool haircut or shave often. Guys who skip these behaviors are probably more secure in themselves as men and that’s super attractive.
  10. It’ll do wonders for your self-esteem. The best part about dating an ugly guy is that you’ll feel 10 times hotter than you actually are, which will give you a ton of confidence. Everywhere you go, people will be giving the two of you the once over in astonishment that a hot lady like you ended up with a frumpy guy like him. Huh, that study kind of makes sense.
