I was thinking about this the other day. If each SO you date is hotter than the last, then it would be pretty easy to keep being happy with how your SO looks. Has anyone ever dated a 10 to whom no one else can compare? If so, how did you deal with subsequent relationships? This discussion is only about looks. Obviously no one is going to downgrade from like a super sweet flexible giver to a psychotic selfish bitch This thread was spawned from a discussion I had with my friend where we talked about Chris Rock's thing about how women can't downgrade in lifestyle and men can't downgrade in sexual activity. We started talking about if men or women could downgrade in physical appearance of their SOs and not be bothered. EDIT - ATTN: WOMEN - this thread is talking ONLY about physical looks. NOT overall attractiveness. So this means NOT money, NOT status, NOT intelligence, NOT habits, NOT education, NOT car, NOT where he lives, NOT what kind of home he has, NOT how good he is with money, NOT how popular he is, NOT how good he is in bed, NOT if he likes animals or not, NOT his sense of humor, and NOT how he treats you. It is ONLY about how he looks physically. I had to add that edit in there because I swear every single woman I have ever spoken to has been unable to initially grasp the concept of ISOLATING PHYSICAL ATTRACTIVENESS. Some still didn't get it even after a more detailed explanation.
