because although women tend to be shallow with regards to male height, they tend to be the extreme opposite of shallow when it comes to preferring personality over facial attractiveness - that's just how women have evolved

Most people dont just go for looks. Personality plays a big role in things.

Because looks aren’t everything - what about personality, shared interests, mutual respect and affection? Love is blind, after all

It’s never quite as simple as all women do X, ie, date men more attractive than them (because evolution, or whatever).

Yes personality is very important. It's right behind money.

this sentiment is alien to men though - men have evolved to favour looks as much as personality

first of all, how good looking someone is is completely subjective and a great personality can honestly make anyone seem 100x more attractive

How on earth does that work? Can you give me a source for this?


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.

Yeah, what @LovelyMrFox said.

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.

Variety of possible answers.
Great personality, very wealthy, access to helpful contacts, shared religious convictions, mutual commitment to political/activist causes, 'power dater'.
