The one thing online dating advice Blogs have in common is they don’t have anything in common at all! I’ve read countless of articles that claim looks are more important to women online than anything. And I’ve read just as many articles that dispute that claim and suggest personality is all that counts. And then there are the “experts” that say they both count equally. So since no one can seem to come to an agreement, I’m going to give you that ‘real’ answer to the question, “how important are looks to women online?”
It’s hard to sleep with someone you find repulsive to look at
Looks definitely aren’t everything when it comes to sex. A great looking guy can be horrible in the sack. Sure, he might be able to turn a woman on easier than an average or ugly looking dude, but that doesn’t mean the sex will be better for a woman. However, in order for a woman to want to sleep with you, she’ll need some sort of physical connection. But don’t worry…
Looks are subjective
You might be the ugliest guy to one woman and the hottest guy to another. Women’s view of men is different than men’s view of women. Most guys agree on what is hot. However, women are completely different. If you asked 500 women to rate a photo of a guy, you’d get a wide range of answers. Every woman is attracted to something different. Some like long hair, some like short hair. Some like skinny guys, some like muscular guys.
Yes, looks DO matter, but…
You control how attractive you are to women. That’s right – YOU have the control over how attractive you are. You can’t become attractive to EVERY woman. But you can become attractive to many. You just have to dress well, comb your hair nicely, and have good hygiene. Staying in shape helps too. That’s really all you have to do. If you’re not blessed with amazingly handsome looks, the ONLY women you have no shot with are the shallow ones. But who wants to date a shallow bitch anyway?
Your profile picture is the first thing a woman sees online. An attractive profile photo is what will get her to open up your profile. No, looks aren’t everything. But she’ll never get to know your personality if she’s repulsed by your photo. So what do you do if you aren’t a natural good looking guy? The same thing the rest of us that weren’t born with great looks do to attract women – take as nice of a photo as possible. Get a new hairstyle, put on a nice outfit, and smile. If you do that, you’ll be surprised how many more women start contacting you.
