About Me
I came to the U.S. at age of 12 with my mother. We settled in sunny Florida, which was quite a contrast to Minsk. I have always been fascinated by sex and relationships. Sex Secrets is where I share sex advice, experiences, news, and sometimes a little humor. If you have a question about sex that you prefer not to post in the comments, you can email me at svetlanaivano(at)yahoo.com.

Why Attractive Women Gladly Date Ugly Men (And Probably Even Prefer Them)

Verena von Pfetten explains why attractive women gladly date ugly men (and probably even prefer them.)

It’s a pretty well known fact that most women – attractive women – will happily date ugly men. We see it on TV — in shows like King of Queens, though I would probably argue that Kevin James is kind of a stud, and really, that’s exactly the point I plan on making– and we see it in our friends.

Kevin James is kind of a stud? In Verena von Pfetten’s universe maybe, but that’s her point: Ugly is in the eye of the beholder.

    Ever notice it *rarely* works the other way, attractive men dating ugly women?

    What does this mean?

  • Svetlana Ivanova says:

    What about Bill and Hillary Clinton?

  • probitionate says:


    Would never vote for her, but looking back at photos of when they were married…I’d hardly classify her as ‘ugly’. (and really, he might be charismatic, but hardly a handsome guy)

    Any other examples?

  • Svetlana Ivanova says:

    Hillary not ugly? Have you seen her college photos? Bill’s not movie star handsome – who is? – but he’s handsome in an Elvis, country boy way.

    Another political example might be George H.W. Bush and Barbara. He wasn’t a bad-looking man when he was a young.

  • probitionate says:

    OK. So far you’ve offered up political examples. Maybe there’s some kind of exemption thing going on there.

    Seriously; how many handsome male friends do you know that ended up with ‘ugly’ women.

    To me, this is a fascinating dichotomy, that attractive women can *often* be seen with ‘hardly their equals in looks’ men, while the equivalent almost never happens with men.
