Why are average girls more likely to have a boyfriend than pretty girls? Watch

Pretty much every average (or slightly above average) girl has a boyfriend, but it seems like really pretty girls quite often don't. I'm usually quite surprised if I hear that an average girl doesn't have a boyfriend, but not at all if I hear that a pretty girl doesn't have one. One is this the case? Are guys intimidated by pretty girls so they go for the average one? Do they assume pretty girls are big-headed and are put off? Or do pretty girls just have higher standards so they more likely to be single? What do you think?

It's because most men are intimidated by really pretty girls, therefore pretty girls don't get approached as much as you might think.

I've found it's actually HARDER to pick up an ugly or average girl than it is to pick up a really pretty one.

This myth that really hot girls get approached a lot has to die. They don't.

If you can be the sort of guy who is not intimidated by an ultra hot girl, i.e. you can keep your composure when around her, then it's easy to pick them up.

Oh, and there are 2 types of hot girl: those know know they are pretty, and those who don't realise how pretty they are. The former are harder to pick up than the latter.

I haven't noticed this tbh. I find they are just as likely as average girls to have a boyfriend.

I've heard this before. But tbh, i don't know of any really attractive women without boyfriends. The ones that do break up seem to be with someone else within a matter of days / weeks.

The rule really:

Hot girls are *****y, nice girls are ugly, and hot, nice girls are taken.

Presumably because pretty girls aren't as likely to limit themselves to just one guy at a time.

I think a lot of stunningly pretty girls are actually quite insecure, a lot more so than many "average" girls. I know girls who are completely beautiful, but don't realise it, and are too shy to accept compliments or approach guys.

I've noticed this too - maybe average girls seem to settle and are so insecure that they need a relationship to be content. Goodlooking girls dont need to settle :yep:

Perhaps you assume that the prettier the girl, the more likely she is to be taken, and so even if they have the same likelihood of being taken, you perceive the difference between your expection and reality to be that she is less likely to be taken.

This is 100% true and you beat me to saying this :teeth:

Guys are usually used to being defeated by searingly hot girls that just reject them, so they go for what they can get.

Hot girls that are reading this:

They might be more picky, I agree with the higher standards one.

I wouldn't say I'm "really pretty", but I'm not ugly, and a lot of boys have asked me out, but I'm extremely picky and so I reject almost all of them. However, I have some friends who are 'average' looking, and they're flattered by any male attention tbh. So I'd go with that one. Ironically, two that asked me out are now dating two of my more average looking friends. :p:

Haha that made me sound conceited, which I'm not, just confident.

I think it must be because hot girls are that little bit more intimidating and often have less self confidence so are harder to start a conversation with.

very true.

a test was actually done. where there was a bunch of guys and a panel of girl ranging from ugly - average - pretty.

the guys were blind folded and the were able to talk to all the girls without a problem. and when they took the blinds off and then told to choose a girl to flirt with.. none of them approached the ugly or pretty girls.
