Am I right to be confused? watch

    Ok, I know this is a stupid thread but I'm just baffled. There's this guy I used to know who dated a friend of mine, anyway this guy was ugly, bit of a geek and was an ********(he used to hit and manipulate his girlfriend - my friend - because he was jealous of my friendship with her). So I looked him up randomly on facebook and his profile says he's in a relationship so being the nosey person I am I looked at who it was and the girl was smoking hot, seriously mindblowingly sexy. No doubt she'd have her pick of the guys.

    I don't get it, he didnt have much of a personality, he was manipulative, not even good looking, oh and no fashion sense whatsoever. Yet he's in a relationship with this girl, am I missing something?

    It especially baffles me because I have a good fashion sense, decently groomed hair, confidence, manners etc and I have difficulty getting a relationship(havent had one in three years). I won't say I'm good looking but not that bad.

    Don't know if this matters but he was quite tall too, over 6 foot.

    Even if according to you he doesn't have much of a personality, according to the girl he's with, he might have the bestest one and they might just really really click. In other words, your perception of his personality (or his looks for that matter) won't be universally defined.

    maybe he used his manipulation skills
    if he is as manipulative as you say, then i doubt he's a happy person deep down, so i wouldn't feel too bad (i could be wrong)
    i've seen uggos get get looking girls through manipulation
