In the dating world, there's a certain grading system with which you're undoubtedly all too familiar.
Akin to a beauty contest scorecard, a person's attractiveness is ranked from one to 10.
And how we get pairings like Lyle Lovett/Julia Roberts, J. Now, I'm certainly not going to put myself into the same camp with the Julia Roberts and Padmas of the world...
but I, too, have dated my fair share of Salman Rushdies.
I've welcomed men into my bed who were short, fat, or balding (sometimes all three), while I, thankfully, am none of those things.
Despite those relationships not working out in the long run, they did end up being some of the most rewarding dating experiences I've had.
And I've gotta say -- it DOES have something to do with their looks.
So if you're a Bo Derek-solid 10, here are reasons why you should consider dating someone who's a Dudley Moore...
or someone at least marginally less attractive than you.
Not too long ago, I was on a date with an actor who knew he was hot AF. It was a far cry from when I dated a less attractive dude, who was always so excited to see me.
Things were going well, but I couldn't help but notice each time a woman walked by our table, his eyes would conveniently stray from our conversation. Our dates -- always planned in advance, and never involving late-night booty calls -- were consistently fun and romantic.
