Plain Janes Better Than The Pretty Ones?Page 7 of 11    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
beauty is truly only skin deep ..or in the eye of the beholder ..being a male I just have not seen many outwardly unattractive women..different people are pretty in different ways ... however i have seen a lot of women that have ugly dispositions ..and those tend to be the ones that think themselves beautiful on the outside .. now i have seen extremely beautiful women that were beautiful inside and out ..if i were looking for a woman my choice between outward beauty and a great personality ..ill take the personality any day

Plain Janes Better Than The Pretty Ones?
Posted: 8/1/2012 6:43:22 AM
Coming from a woman's perspective I used to work with this thin woman who thought she was absolutely wonderful. If I had been a guy I would not have given her the time of day. She ended up marrying this guy for the 2nd time because he had money I'm sure if he hadn't she wouldn't have married him. He ended up fixing up her house but if anything happened he would get nothing out of it. She strutted around and wore her heels and knew nothing about what went on in the world and had not even been to college. She couldn't stand being pregnant because her body was fat. She was an incredible snob. At the end of the day she would put on perfume so strong it was as though she took a bath in it. She was all about being thin and sexy. To me she was one of the most repulsive females I have ever met in my entire life. She got ugly when his 1st wife asked him for money for his daughters wedding. She would not help them with college but expected him to help with her son's college. I don't blame her 1st husband for leaving her. I feel sorry for the 2nd one.

I did go out with this one guy that no matter what I could not get past it. He reminded me of my best friends father in looks and personality. My best friends father had gone out on her mother at 80 and went back and married his first wife who went out on him when he was in their 20's who he had divorced years earlier. I couldn't stand her father so I could not go out with this guy.

Do any of you other gentlemen find Plain Janes better than the Pretty ones? From my experience, the Pretty ones are very conceited even when they are friendly, whereas the Plain Janes have better personalities and are down-to-Earth. Do any of you other gentlemen find that to be the case?


Plain Janes? Never seen one. You are either attracted to someone or you aren't.

Men who date women that they acknowledge as less pretty simply because they are more docile and less likely to rise to a challenge, don't fit my definition of a 'gentleman'.

Some women date docile men who they might not find to be handsome because they say the men can be controlled and give the women anything they want. These women are not ladies, IMHO. I might be a plain Jane to 99 percent of the men I meet, but I will be danged before I let any man treat me any differently than he would treat a woman he might think was a 10. Probably one reason that I don't date much, as some men think I am supposed to take anyone who comes my way as I am not some hot looking woman to them.

There's a type of women I call "Barbie dolls". They are the ones that do the Botox, are perfect blond, and have all their photos either on a boat, coming out of a Mazzeratti, or with a horse.
My personal experience with these particular type of women has been rather negative. They are extremely high maintenance, and because they can get practically any man, the expectations that they have materialistic or other wise tend to be very high.

Now, let's move down another notch. Women who are very attractive, yet do not feel like they have to be the most beautiful woman in the room. These type of women actually tend to come across as being arrogant, but mainly it's because they are more introverted that people thing they may be. These women do have high expectations, but not so much of what you offer materialistically, but what you offer emotionally. I tend to get along great with these type of women.

Another notch down. Is what I call the natural girl. If these girls tried harder, they can look very good, however, either it is not their top priority to look sexually attractive, or they just don't know how. I've seen both in this equation. Some of these women have a huge chip on their shoulders, others can care less. This is what I call marriage material. These women will accept you exactly for what you are and even put up with crap from men. Actually all of the above will put up with crap from men, but it all depends on where they think they are in their own latter.

Then there are the women we do not find physically attractive. Women in this category can be totally different depending on the guy. There's nothing wrong with this women. They are awesome friends, some may have insecurities, chips, or be great. They tend to try harder to please a man and work with that man.

This is of course, not a science but a perception. So if women say, you are totally wrong about the above, or I dare you put numbers on women. Again, perception. And even though women may not like men labeling them a 9 or an 8 or a 5, men do, and will continue to do that for as long as there are pubs and places where men talk with other men.

Oh boy, as this thread is ongoing. I think women are beautiful period. To seperate one from the other looks speaking is silly. Women are just beautiful naturaly. Men however, there is either 8-10=model type, 6-7 rating,not model but can still attract women easily. then guys like me 5 and below average. So really its men that should be split in those terms

I've seen 300lb cheetah-print hippos complaining that every guy is hitting on them and only wants to get them in bed. And I've seen girls who are professional models who will go out of their way to help anyone who needs it and treats everyone with respect.

On PoF though... There is a trend leaning towards what you said.

I tend not to defend myself unless I'm being attacked. If someone calls me a big black giraffe, I'm going to assume theres a big black giraffe behind me and go about my merry way.

Case in point...if the shoe doesn't fit, pretty girl's don't have to wear it. However, shoes that fit can occasionally hurt to wear. Either way, their choice to wear it is there own. I see no need to defend oneself against accusations that don't apply to them.

You only find what it is you are looking for...and avoid everything else life offers, because it isn't interesting enough for you. And like Worbug said, there are beautiful people who think they are normal. Just like rich people complain they have problems too--but the reality are far more interesting, and the solutions sure are better :) (for example, as a kid I complained once about having to fix a flat tire and the rich kid next to me wondered why I didn't call AAA--didn't my father include that when he bought me the car?)

that said, yes, there are scientific studies that show even in grade school, ON AVERAGE, beautiful children get better treatment from teachers who think physical appearance is a sign of success. If you got treated as child as if you could do little wrong, and other children followed that by trying to be your friend, then yes, you will have less need to develop your personality as someone who, for example, is Plain as Jane.

I've met women who were hot, and had something to offer...to find out later that they grew up PJ. I've also met insecure hotties who were shy, or sick of having to live up to the role that others forced on them, and so gave off that conceited shield to keep people at bay. And, there's guys who can fall into the OP's description, too.

Why do we continue this ridiculous discussion of rating women ( and sometimes men) on their perceived rating or rank based on physical attraction....

I`m moving myself into the IDGAF category of woman from now on. It`s a much nicer home than the lower tier most of yàll have me placed, based on body and all that other stuff.


And oddly, once in a while a man finds me there and even with the lack of bleached hair, makeup and lipo, finds me wildy attractive. And I likewise.

Although this is simply a generalization, from my experience Plain Janes tend to have much better personalities. Lots of attractive women have gotten by with their looks and haven't needed to develop a personality to be successful in work ect. I think lots of men can attest to this.

each time I read a silly posts I get more amazed at how odd so many people think.

Pretty DO NOT have to have a developed personality?? ridiculous.

So those of you who agree say there are few or NO pretty women that are good people??
Fun or nice pretty women??

pathetic statements from guys who have never been with a pretty woman who was with the guy cuz she liked him...

Any women can have a good or bad personality. If you trip over a girl cuz of her looks, well she may play with you. Your fault, not hers.

Hmmm.... no idea. But based on my personal observations, I would say this is true. Usually the Plain Janes have to compensate for their lack of looks in other areas, and sometimes that means having a better personality, or being better in bed, or being more helpful and understanding, and so forth.


I disagree, strongly. There aren't really any trends, either way - the only difference that I can tell is that, when it comes to bad personalities, the "spoiled" beautiful people get replaced with the "bitter" plain ones. Other than that, looks play no real part in personality.

I love it when the hot wife discovers her husband is cheating on her with a plain jane woman. Could it be that the plain jane is his match sexually, emotionally and intellectually? I do not condone extramarital affairs but I do understand why they happen. This plain Jane has been approached more than a few times by married men who seemed to be a match for me when their wives were not.

Guess men like women who like sex then. His wife might be sexy but if he is not getting any at home he turns to someone who gives it to him and enjoys it. He is a fool if he thinks the plain jane is not going to start viewing him as a cash register too, at least part of the time it seems.
