So I’m not good looking by traditional standards. And it has always affected my dating life. I’ve tried to ignore it but girls won’t even look at me twice. What are some tips for an ugly guy like me?

First, i would say that being “ugly” is down to a person’s perference so i wouldbt be too hard on yourself, also i think the older you get the less appearance matters when dating. I think as long as you are comfortable with yourself and appear confident then you’ll be much more attractive to girls

Honestly, personality is more attractive. Don’t be too down on yourself.

Looks are very simple for a man to achieve.
Just go to the gym, and dedicate your workouts to achieving muscle-mass. The bigger, the better.
My cousin is ugly as sin, and never got any girls growing up. He trained to get a good body, and now has girls throwing themselves at him.

I can relate. I have to somewhat disagree with the comment that “the older you get the less looks matter”. I’m single after a very long tem marriage and girls on dating sites judge you first and foremost by your pictures. I’ve chatted with women many many times and they say they like me and then we exchange pictures and they disappear because I don’t meet their standards. And I don’t think I’m ugly. I’m not overweight. I’ve been told I’m a great catch. But it happens to me a lot.
Confidence. That’s what attracts women. Not cocky-ness. Confidence. Be nice but not needy. That’s why you see beautiful women with ugly dudes. I’ve never had much self-confidence but I’ve been working on it. And my appearance by losing weight and toning up.

Sense of humour and being your own man! having morals and a strong personality.
Pursuing your passions and withdrawing if a situation is not working out.
I would say confidence is important, but more important pride in who you are.

Everyone see beauty differently. So you may appear ugly to some but attractive to others. As a woman who grew up thinking physical attraction was extremely important, I realized it was not. Yes, it is great to have but if someone has a rather horrible personality, it just sucks. As a woman, I find a guy with a great sense of humor and intelligence very attractive. I don’t enjoy small talk, so I would want someone I could have deep conversations with. Most important of all, be yourself.

First I would stop calling myself ugly. the more you hear it the more you feel it and the girls can sense it too.. Think about your good qualities, how much you can offer to a girlfriend and what makes you so special.. your dance moves? your sweetness, you cook? whatever it is.. and carry that with you with pride when you are around girls.. looks are really not everything..

Alright, the answer is really simple….
Girls will like you if you are a bad boy… Not a bad boy? Ok, do you play guitar? If not, learn to. There was a study showing the guitarist have more luck picking up the ladies.
But you wanna know the biggest thing? Your aura. What I mean by that is your energy, are you fun to be with? Now you dont have to change who you are BUT I would suggest that you get exited about life, focus on all the things that are right in your life, you family? Friends? All the good things, focus on those. I personally listen to a lot of a motivation speaker called Tony Robbins, look him up. Try something called his hour of power. If its for you and you embrace how great everything is in your life, then your mind and body will change to it! Pretty soon, people, not just girls! Will want to hang around you. That sounds like a marketing thing, so if its not for you, just get happy and exited about your life
Hope this helps in some way friend, go get em!
