    I heard this a few times but I think its nonsense. I'm average and defo dont get hit on as much as my more attractive friends :lol: same for my other "average" friends, but apparently beautiful girls are more "intimidating" to most guys.

    Do average girls get hit on/white knighted more by average guys maybe though?

    What about below average? :ninja:

    Well .. not every single average girl will get hit on. Plus, the idea of something or someone being "average" is subjective.

    In general tho :dontknow:

    I guess but unfortunately we have kind of general stereotypes about whats "average" and beautiful. Like most people wouldnt find Lena Dunham as hot as Kate Beckinsale.

    I don't think guys look at a girl and say "She's average, let me hit on her"...all guys try it with girls they find attractive, whether or not anyone else thinks the girl is attractive is another matter..

    the term average is very relative and varies according to what one considers as average

    we all have different standards

    Depends how many drinks they've had Joking

    I guess maybe if a girl is really really attractive to a guy he might be scared to ask because he thinks he doesn't have a chance if that's what you mean?

    I'm not sure I would have thought it would be looks... but rather like... 'high strunginess'?
    You can be very good looking and seem approachable, or conversely... not.

    Well that's an interesting idea. For the vast majority of guys there does come a point in which a female may appear unattainable because she is so attractive. So the guy will not even bother trying because he assumes that he will get rejected. A below average guy will, when he realises he is, hit on below average girls but don't assume that you are below average just because you have not been hit on

    It depends on guys tbh some don't care whilst others are selective lol

    As a guy it depends who I think is attractive which other guys may not think that girl is attractive lol but I'm shy so I don't hit on girls loool fear of rejection lol

    In short it differs from guy to guy

    Well, it depends - if they are smart and beautiful, it can be intimidating.
    If they are beautiful but a complete *****, they can **** off
    If they are beautiful and have a good personality, feelings may develop

    Yes, their range will vary according to their own confidence. How old are you?

    Some guys do feel threatened when they see a really attractive girl as they might think she's too good for her and might not have the confidence to approach her. So yes, they might go and seek an average girl in that sense. Although I do agree with you and I still believe that attractive girls get more attention that the plain jane's. I see it all the time, in my school the better looking girls definitely get more attention than the average looking/below average looking girls but it depends really. I also know some attractive girls that do not recieve as much attention because they are shy.

    Depends on the guy...some guys will only approach girls they find really attractive, thinking it's pointless going for girls that they only find slightly attractive, and some guys will only go for those that they think are kinda attractive, thinking the ones that are really attractive are out of their league...
