One of the most common myths about dating is that looks are everything. Society teaches us from an early age that people should only hope to date someone who is in the same general looks "range" as they are. This doesn't have to be true.
The thinking goes that unless you are rich, famous, or both, that you shouldn't even bother trying to date someone who is more attractive. I think this is one of the more damaging ideas out there. We have all seen couples who are seemingly way out of each others leagues. So how did this happen? This brings me to my tip for today:
MINGLE TIP #55: DON'T BE A RESPECTER OF LOOKS OR "LEAGUES"
(1) What does it mean to not be a "respecter" of looks or leagues? When I say don't be a "respecter" of looks or leagues, that means that you shouldn't put more value on these qualities than they deserve. Great looks are nice, but they are far from everything. A person's attractiveness shouldn't intimidate you. This just happens to be one of their positive qualities. Don't be the bumbling fool who can't talk just because an attractive woman is present. Value the deeper things as well.
(2) Do looks help? Duh. Yes, looks do help, obviously. They just don't have to be everything. It is true that looks, money, fame, etc. can help your dating cause, but they aren't essential. Far from it. As I have mentioned many times before, the comfort you feel and the ability to make the other person comfortable are more important than just about anything.
(3) Am I wrong to want to date someone who is good looking? No. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that you should totally ignore attraction in your potential dates. There still has to be a connection there. However, if you are going to accept people who are supposedly much better looking than you into your dating pool, the reverse should also be true also. You should also be willing to consider dating someone who may not quite be considered as good looking as you as well.
So, break free from this limiting thinking that you can only date people who are in similar leagues as you. You might miss out on someone great.
