    I feel this way about someone atm. I'm pretty sure he's an unpleasant person but for some reason I'm very strongly attracted to him. And no, it's nothing to do with that bad boys being sexy crap, I've never been into that. It feels so weird. I'm not interested in doing anything about it but I just wondered how you can physically fancy someone whose personality is so unattractive.

    Any thoughts?

    OP, I've been in this situation, but actually got involved with the guy: BIGGEST MISTAKE!

    He was everything I always said I wouldn't go for yet I was so intrigued by him that I thought maybe it could work. It didn't.

    I think what attracted me to him was that there was so many negatives about him I subconsciously thought I could be the positive and that he would somehow change, however when its a 24 year old guy I'm sure there's little that can be done by a 21year old to change his personality/characteristics.

    Yes, you can even go as far as sleeping with someone you despise if the raw attraction is there and a lot. Attraction isn't a choice, you can't logically turn it on or off.

    Simple really, the outside matters more than the inside.
    I know people will disagree, but it's just true and not open to debate.
