Attractive Friends

I was just thinking about this today, "Am I more willing to make friends with women who are more attractive than not?" After thinking about it, I think the answer is not clear cut. I do like to interact with hot women, however I'm usually feeling uncomfortable depending on their level of attraction. At the same time, I'm really rarely interested in listening to what an unattractive girl has to say....unless she's funny, but I do feel like I can be more myself around her. I'm coming to the conclusion that there's problem some sort of happy medium, where a girl is attractive and draws my attention, but not so attractive that I start becoming self-conscious. Any body else thought about this? :) www.1000pushups.com

haha shallow hal i think its a bit rude of anyone not to listen to someone when they are talking to you. looks should not matter when choosing friends. i think you should see the bigger picture there is more to life than looks. dont be so shallow.

i think that being shallow may actually be inherent... i'm not talking about ignoring people here, I'm just considering who I (and would guess most people) tend to gravitate to....

I am the exact oppisite of you, I find it eaiser to make friends with men then I do women, mostly since me and my wife split because she was seeing another man, ever since then I have found a hard time getting close to women, even as friends sometime, there are a few women from work that I am friends with but that is because they introduced themselfs to me, I don't really have any other women friends outside of work.

I tend to be friends with all types of people. I know it will sound shallow and it is shallow, but in my 20s I tended to only befriend the more attractive and beautiful people. I found that when I hung out with my beautiful girlfriends, I got more attention from men. Surrounding yourself with pretty people make others see you as one of the more attractive people. Studies have shown that prettier people get ahead easier in life so I tend to gravitate to more attractive people. I do have friends that when I first met them, I thought that they were less attractive, ok, some were down right ugly. But as I got to know them, I saw how beautiful they were as people. And then one day I noticed that they didn't seem so unattractive anymore. So, I guess just getting older makes you notice the packaging less. I still like to think of myself as one of the pretty people and I still like being around pretty people, but I don't shy away from the less attractive people anymore.

that's interesting from a woman's perspective. to us guys, it's actually a little bit intimidating to go up to women in a group...i think there's a higher chance of rejection.
