Dating someone who is not your type

Telling someone they aren't attractive enough--which is a horribly rude thing to do--is passing judgment on the individual being rejected.

It is, in essence, saying, "You're not enough"--and enough what doesn't really matter, because it's a judgment on that person's intrinsic value.

Physically, I like men who are more or less average, everyday joes. I typically prefer men who are clean-shaven, but I surprised myself once by falling in love with a man with a full beard.

I don't much care for long, scraggly hair, and I usually find goatees and mustaches a turnoff. But I really can't imagine saying to someone, "You just aren't attractive enough physically" because, you know, he was 6'4" and a really snappy dresser.

I agree that plenty of people have grown to be attracted physically to someone over time once they become emotionally attracted to that person. For me, as long as he's decent and mature, there's no harm in giving it shot.

Sometimes physical chemistry builds as two people really get to know each other.

I wouldn't consider myself shallow because looks/physicality is not the most important on my list but I think it should be to some degree?
