In that context, I can certainly remember some of my college frat brothers offering up commentary that "while none of them had ever gone to bed with a "homely" woman, that they sure as hell had woken up alongside a bunch of them!"

I'm guessing that some awfully strange things just happen in the middle of the night!

My borther always expressed concern about how much time it took for a woman to get ready for a date.

In my admittedly limited experience, it isn't really looks but vibe. I've been both irresistible and a total turn off -- all without any change to makeup or wardrobe, just in mood and what I'm projecting at the time.

I also think men, like women, are very individual in their tastes. Although you are almost guaranteed to capture a man's attention by playing to the "hot" style of dress (heels, tight clothes, skin showing) and poses (just look in any men's magazine out there), where all women end up looking pretty much the same, that extra "je ne sais quoi" seems to me to be quite individual.

LOL. Men are super easy to fool that way, as they don't usually see anything beyond the dress, heels and make-up. And virtually every woman can capture that men's magazine look with the right clothes, and posing.

Hopefully, all of that "gussying-up" that most women spend countless hours doing ain't exactly indicative of the degree of homeliness that they possess!

If so, we should have all gotten into the cosmetics industry a very long time ago! As we missed out on a sheer fortune!

Now in Old Arb's case, whenever I'm primping to "go out," I don't really need cosmetics at all ~ I only need a damned sandblaster and a vat of disinfectant!!

Maybe yes, maybe, no. If you read the comment section of the Daily Mail, a lot of the male commenters are not too complimentary of the celebrities that are featured in DM's non stories.

Re: Not too pretty, but oh so hot......

Nothing is more important to me than someone seeming happy, and in particular happy to be with me. A flirtatious smile means more than all the high heels, makeup, and low cut dresses in the world.

But maybe you can explain the attraction.

Hard to take those sour grapes too seriously, don't you think?

Re: Not too pretty, but oh so hot......

Some celebrity actresses who may not be considered the prettiest can pull off the 'oh so hot...' Ellen Barkin in Sea Of Love comes to mind.

That's what you call coyote ugly! When you wake up spooning with an ugly one you would just as soon chew your own arm off so you can get out of there without waking her up!

And if memory serves me correctly in due respect to that statement, and speaking, of course, from the purely figurative standpoint, quite a few of those college frat men, did in fact, appear to have been what I'd refer to as "upper limb amputees!"

The price you have to pay for being drunk, stupid and coyote ugly.

Some of the comments can really be funny. I don't contemplate whether they have sour grapes or not.
