Why do people commit to less than beautiful? Isnt beauty the highest criteria for selecting a girl? Then why doesnt it prevail when you choose a girl? Why do so many mismatched pairs exits?
Girls seem to get it right. Wealth on an average tops a girl’s priority list and hence not surprisingly, you dont find girls marrying guys who earn less than their expectation. Yes, they might not be as rich as an Ambani, but they earn reasonably well. Similarly, why dont good looking guys find reasonably good looking girls? Maybe not an Aishwarya Rai, but at least having some physical attractiveness. I know that marrying someone is not just about looks. You need to look at compatibility, a good sense of humour, a nice nature and what not. But do decent looks and these features never come together? I have friends who have chosen girls who clearly fall short of their own standards of beauty but top in their standards of behaviour. You cant but fail to notice their eager looks when they first show you their gf’s pics. They hope that I will approve, that I will probably find something beautiful that they, by their own high standards, missed. Alas, I cant offer any consolation. The best I do is to side step the question about looks and head straight for the ‘how good is her nature’ zone. After all, what makes you think that my standards are low!
