Why do so many hot girls date ugly guys?Watch
It’s never quite as simple as all women do X, ie, date men more attractive than them (because evolution, or whatever).
this sentiment is alien to men though - men have evolved to favour looks as much as personality
Any kind of evolutionary psychology claim like that is going to be very tenuous, and even if it’s statistically true (which I doubt), there will be men/AMAB people for whom it isn’t true.
It's not really that hard to understand. Why date someone just because of how they look? Sure, they may be attractive, but they also may be horrible human beings or someone that cheats a lot.
'Attractiveness' does not equate to a happy relationship.
Great personality, very wealthy, access to helpful contacts, shared religious convictions, mutual commitment to political/activist causes, 'power dater'.
