    I dated this guy that was pretty out of my league tbh, for a couple of months. He was really good looking, athletic etc. He loved my personality, according to him. :P

    I think the whole notion of "standards" is pathetic. Have I ever been with someone who was considerably more attractive than myself? Yes, I think I have but it is obviously very subjective.
    This.

    Why would I be with someone if I didn't find them extremely attractive? Whether it's looks, personality or just hormones... if I'm into it, I'm into it.

    You probably mean "out of your league"? Standards are like minimum requirements, so obviously everybody seeks someone above their minimum standards (but are sometimes willing to settle for less).

    I don't think I've dated someone I'd say was 'out of my league'.
    yea your right when i was writing this thread and i was thinking i know there is another way to say this and what i meant is 'out of your league'

    I dunno really. I probably wouldn't be interested in someone I felt was "out of my league" (whatever that's supposed to mean). I'm more interested in someone who seems more attainable. I don't mean that in a degrading way... I just mean that in a way, as in... I can actually see myself with that person?? I dunno. I hate the idea of standards based upon looks. It's too superficial.

    I tend to grossly underestimate myself, and grossly overestimate everybody else. this usually leads to me being really insecure about my looks, going for the guy who is way below my league, and getting rejected by the same for being way out of his. :/
    Guys don't reject people for being out of their league, ever.
