Is it true that men see themselves as way better looking than they actually are while women tend to underrate themselves? This is an old article that is popping up today and its talking about men thinking are way better looking than they actually are. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/...201507/when-men-arent-good-looking-they-think My personal feelings are that looks are important but looks and attraction can be separate as well. I have been attracted to women who were average looking or a bit overweight while having no feeling for a conventionally good looking women who were thin or fit. Of course my opinion doesn't reflect the majority of opinions and for all I know, looks and attraction are a packaged deal for most.
