Yes. I think this guy's letter boils down to, "Dear Abby, I can't find enough attractive women to date. Spread the word to the women of the world to improve themselves for me, will you? Because they're really letting me down."
Dude, you're stuck with the world you've got. Learn to make peace with it.
Yes, that's why I posted it! To me, he came off as someone who was whining about how most women in his age group let themselves go, and he couldnt' find someone who was supermodel gorgeous enough to suit his taste.
I know for me, there has to be some sort of attraction, but its not always going to be looks. It may be intelligence, sense of humor, sharing the same likes and dislikes etc. For example, I'm a HUGE sports fan, football, baseball and hockey. What's funny is I think back to almost all the guys I've dated and none of them have really been into sports. I'm more of a fan now than I was, so at this point in my life, d@ting someone who doens't like sports might not work for me.
I have no illusions that someone I end up with will be drop dead gorgeous. He might be to me, but not the rest of the world. Or maybe he is, and that's fine, but I won't base what I'm looking for on that...there's a whole lot more to people than just their looks.
