Online Dating Tips for Those with Non-Godlike Physiques

Not gorgeous? Don’t worry. In the end, looks are only a small factor in the world of love and romance. Here are some pointers on being a great date – looks optional!

  • Choose a candid but funny profile photo – Are you considering photoshopping yourself to perfection? That one will be skipped. If you get to the in-person meeting stage, you’re simply going to get yourself into trouble. It’s much preferable, to be honest with your profile image – but be honest and have fun at the same time! Show that you’re more than a boring person with mediocre looks by posting a photo of yourself skydiving or joking with a group of orphans you just rescued from an erupting volcano…. you get the idea.
  • Don’t say too much right away – A great way to scare people off online is to bare your soul too early in the game. Feel free, to be honest about yourself and share fun details, but leave some things left to be discovered later – a little air of mystery can be a good thing.
  • Don’t be too judgmental – You’re not the only one in a vulnerable state on online dating sites. Be kind and patient, but also be fair to those who approach you, and don’t lead people on if you’re not interested.

Dating Sites That Favor the Inside Over the Outside

It’s kinda sad that so many people turn to mainstream dating sites to meet their online dating needs. There are so many fun, quirky dating sites and matchmaking services out there – one need not stick to the beaten track.

Here are some fun sites for those of substance and depth!

  • Nerd Passions – Another free dating site, Nerd Passions differentiates itself from the herd by letting its members “create their own personal social network of dating sites, customized specifically to their particular interests (or passions) in life.” Nerds, unite!
  • Geek 2 Geek – This service focuses on online dating for those who identify themselves as geeks. And often those who identify as geeks also openly admit that they are not… built for the runway… as it were. The site isn’t free (it’s $12 per month), but you can enter your profile for free.

There are many more sites available; it’s better to look around until you find one with a reasonable amount of individuals in your region. Who wants to deal with long-distance relationships, after all? Nobody!!!

Offline Dating Tips for Those Who Are Not Chiseled from Marble

  • Be considerate – thinking of the needs and feelings of your date will ensure that he or she has a great time, which is really what matters when it comes to your chances of going on another date, right?
  • Be confident – nothing reeks of unattractiveness than a lack of confidence. This is one of the biggest reasons why those who find themselves to be unattractive are so unsuccessful in the dating arena—it’s not that they’re really less attractive, it’s that they’ve got an annoying complex that ruins the mood!
  • Be courteous – We live in a fast, modern world where traditional courting protocol has been… well, violently raped and thrown out the window. This does not mean that you, too, have clearance to behave like a baboon in heat. Bring back some of that old-fashioned chivalry or ladylike charm – it can take you far, and prove that you’re worth getting to know better.
  • Have fun – The most important thing is that you do not take things too seriously and instead focus on having fun and getting to know someone new. Whatever happens, happens. No big deal!
  • Go for the details – Small things- a little compliment here, a kind gesture there- can make a big difference. Don’t forget them!

You’re Not as Disadvantaged As You Might Think!

You might not be gorgeous, but that can actually be a good thing in the long run. Here are five reasons why it pays off to not be strikingly attractive:

1. You will find it easier to cultivate and be appreciated for other talents

Even the most bright and attractive people must contend with a stigma—in this case, the stigma of being attractive. People all too often mistake one aspect of attractive people’s personas for an all-encompassing feature, which can prevent people from appreciating more vital skills. You’re free to be acknowledged for your intelligence, wit, and other positive (and ultimately, more important) attributes since you’re not burdened by distracting attractiveness.

2. You will find it easier to be humble and more understanding

You might not be beautiful or handsome, but at least you’re not conceited about your looks, right? Nothing is more insufferable than a date who thinks he or she is the best thing that ever happened to planet earth.

3. You will not experience the pain of losing your beauty

One thing I experience quite frequently in biographies, memoirs, and other tales from beautiful people, especially women, is an account of how painful it is to age and lose one’s beauty. If you’re not known for your beauty or particularly attached to your looks, you won’t have to endure the suffering associated with losing them!

4. You have the advantage of differentiation and can be more memorable

It is well understood that humans favor the norm, and value more normal appearances as more beautiful. This is understandable enough- we are all attracted to that which is familiar. Nevertheless, looking different (and therefore less attractive) can still be leveraged to one’s advantage. Looking different allows one to stand out, be memorable, and make an impact. If you look different, stop feeling self-conscious and utilize your uniqueness to make an extra impact. Just think of all the famous and influential people in history who were known for odd or unique features- they rode their singularity to success; why don’t you?

5. You are given a good challenge which can make you ultimately stronger

I’d never claim that life is easy for those who aren’t gorgeous; research and anecdotes alike show that being attractive can make life easier and more enjoyable. However, one may use a disadvantage to make oneself stronger in the long run, so being less attractive only serves to make one more clever, nimble, intriguing, and talented.
