In Favor Of The Homelier Man

Illustration for article titled In Favor Of The Homelier Man

Okay, so a few days ago we came across this article in The Sun about women who prefer to date "ugly" men because they treat you better. Said one lady: "I can't imagine anything more boring than classic handsome looks. I prefer no teeth, baldness and piercings to model looks." And, you know, we could totally relate! (Except for the "no teeth" part.) For some reason, around the time we graduated from college [Or, in the case of one of us, dropped out! -Ed.] the whole pretty-boy thing just didn't do it for us anymore. Maybe it was all the self-involved, Johnny Depp-idolizing drama students we came across. Or maybe we just got a clue. After the jump, Anna and Moe discuss the pros of partnering with "less-alluring" men.

Hilarious! I still can be unwillingly enamored of the almost supernaturally attractive male, usually until they open their mouth to speak, but, I have fallen hard and fast for those men with, shall we say, conspicuous flaws in their looks. Angels with broken wings...etc.
