Everyone feels entitled to the hot partner, but not everybody gets one. If the women who feel passed over would stick to the men who feel passed over, then that would leave the hotties for eachother, and all would be in perfect balance.

formulas,
I'm not sure about that only because most of us on this site dont get any mail either, I know I dont; nor do any of my friends that are on this site. I think that has to do with what the one guy said about the women to men ratio on dating sites. The women out number the men 7 to 1.

I gotta say that after alot of stuffing around and what 8 years of proper dating, the first thing i think of when considering a chick for a long term thing is weather or not she is fit and healthy. Then comes the cute face. Not model cute, just what >I< would consider cute.
After that i consider kindness, motorvation, honesty, general fun-ness of the person.

And no, i'm not shallow, just blatantly honest. We all do it, no one says it.

I'm sure we all overlook many good people in our lives. You could be the sweetest person ever but if you're not attractive to me for whatever reason you will be overlooked as I would be to you should we be in opposite positions. You could be beautiful but have a laugh like fingernails on a chalkboard to me, and someone else would find it music to their ears. There are reasons why anyone would overlook anybody. Some good, some outrageously stupid, but such is life. The main thing to remember is just because you find someone attractive doesn't mean they will find you attractive.

These men are dumb and just want sluts? Most likely.
They don't care about the good women who would actually love them forever.

How do you tell one from the other when all you have is a flimsy self claim?

I don't think this is a man vs. woman debate.
We all may overlook a "good" partner.
But the fact is that we know within ourselves when we find it - what it was we were seeking, and we know when it just isn't there.

You can settle. And accept someone because they're "good enough" or "ok" or "close!"

But the reality is you just know when you know.

Yeah, lust can sometimes make the "close enoughs" do-able.
But for something lasting or to commit to?

You truly take your own, sweet, time and don't rush it.

I think alot of great people are over looked due to reading in black and white. No voice tone. No facial expression. An then you have the bull chitter filters. That filter is like a wall with a woman. She gets so used to listening to the bull chitters feeding them a line of chit that when a guy is being real then their walls are sooooooo far up in the air they are sceptical and sometimes miscommunicate and hit the block button or else read and delete. It's only a certain percentage of people that makes us all sceptical. Some people have their standards set so high that they will only talk to someone thats really above their league. There's some guys that play them selves down when talking so the woman doesn't think he's feeding her a line.
Some women need to lighten up and take a chill pill. I don't know about the guys because I don't email them. We're all humans tho. Some just take more showers than others.

Is it a lack of self confidence or merely paranoia that makes people hope others are talking about them?

I'm thinking there's a group of men an women that just want to play the finger-pointing game. They sit on the opposite side of their own little fences and fling rotten tomatoes at each other. Why they are busy being miserable, the rest of us are ignoring them and having a fine and happy life without the BS. What you do reflects back on you. That includes blaming others. It tells a lot about a person.

Greetings,
I think a lot of men want a trophy to display on his arm. "Look at me! See what I have. I won her!" I also think men are more apt to be taken in by sight and over character , intelligence, and spirituality. Then there are some who are searching for all those benefits. I guess envy of others would fit in here.

Hm. Weird. A nice/good men/women thread that not only wasn't deleted on the spot but also has almost 8 pages of replies?!? That is almost hard to believe!

To answer the question... who knows. Women like a**holes, men like beyatches. We all are collectively screwed up in the head.

Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are lazy. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy.......

Yeah, my sister sent me that chain letter a while back.


MEN OVERLOOK GOOD WOMEN BECAUSE MOST ARE JUST CONCERNED HOW A PERSON LOOKS ON THE OUTSIDE AND NOT WHAT KIND OF PERSON THEY REALLY ARE. THEREFOR MOST OF US PLAIN WOMEN GET OVERLOOKED AND GET JADED WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE AND DATING. ONE THING MEN DO NOT UNDERSTAND IS THAT LOOKS ISN'T EVERYTHING AND THAT THEY COULD BE MISSING OUT ON SOME WONDERFUL EXPERIENCES AND THE GOOD FEELINGS THAT COME WITH KNOWING SOMEONE, JUST BECAUSE LOOKS IS THE MAIN THING THAT DRIVES THEM IN THIS CRAZY DATING WORLD. BUT OH WHO CARES ANYMORE.

WELL MAYBE IF ALL THE GOOD PLAIN WOMEN WENT OUT WITH THE NICE GUYS EVERYONE WOULD BE HAPPY.

I'm guessing the answer is the same as all the other questions people ask on this forum. One particular man might not be attracted to a specific woman despite how 'good' she may be or 'nice' he is.

Overlooking " GOOD WOMEN" or is it GOD's WOMEN?"
Are men really looking ? Are they LOOKING ?
What are they looking with ?
MEN : Do tell ALL !

REAL MEN LOVE WOMEN with CURVES ; YES MOVIE TITLE but excellent referral

Shallow HAL ; another MOVIE



OKAY ; NOW we know the WHY but do you really want those that " OVERLOOK."

I thought about this

if we turn this around - - - we all think that we are good people - - -

and can say this - - - - "why do women or men overlook a good man or woman"

which basically means - - - why doesn't she or he like me or want to go out with me.

I have heard stories from women about a man that they meet, he is wondering why she got up and left - - - going - - why does this good looking woman not want me ( a good man)

I have done the same with women - - - she shows up - - 100 lb's over weight(picture is old very old) , or is a smoker when I have clearly said - - I do not want anyone that smokes. She thinks she is a good woman and I go - - forget it. - - she might be but clearly not my type.

We all have done this - - - - - - to someone that thinks they are a good person and desirable - while they are clearly what the other is not interested in - - - -

and other reason is we do not always realize how we are coming off to the other person.

I have a buddy, old long time friend but his wife - - - oh boy, I swear if he was to record some of the conversations she has and plays them back - - she will be totally shocked at how she is coming off. - - - totally, the worst part of it is she thinks she is smart - - not realizing how she is really coming off. - - - - We are all this way in some way at some times. Just some are worst than others.
