You're not crazy - Back in my "younger" days, I'd be a typical guy; most of my crushes were the ones in the school that were the most attractive.
Well, in my later school days, I found that many of those attractive ones did not appear to have the traits I was really after.
Now, at least for me mentally attractive has the majority of the weight in what I look for - I look for someone that may not be a model, but has
enough character & personality that works better for me. It is true - there should be at least some physical attraction, but compatibility shouldn't
rely solely on it.
And, just for the record, I have yet to come across a girl that meets the definition of "ugly"; there's always something about them that shines
above all other traits - Might be how her eyes seem to sparkle, how she pronounces a certain word, or just her smile.
EDIT: Both genders can have unrealistic standards - You won't believe how many girls I've run into wanting to find a "rich, athletic guy that loves
to party", and how many guys I know that look for a girl with "all the right...parts, loves to drink, and enjoys chilling out". I'd love to tell
them to keep dreaming, but who am I to spoil their fun?
(PS: most of the people I'm referring to are in their 20's, my age. Can't wait to see
when reality kicks in).
