The popular belief is that Beauty is skin-deep, and you love a person for who they are and all that great stuff that homely people tell themselves to get through the day .
I want to know all about any examples you can give of couples you have known that have included one (physically) beautiful person and one (physically) ass-ugly ogre (extreme discrepencies).
I don’t want to hear anyone arguing the principle that a hottie could love a beast. I want to hear Dopers offering examples of couples they have known.
Another criterion that MUST be met: this has to be a relationship where you believe in the love between these two people. You got a 27 year old swimsuit model coupled with an ugly old man who has millions of dollars? If you don’t believe they are truly in love then they don’t belong in this Thread.
My example: I had some friends a few years back (no longer in touch- don’t know if they’re still together): She was a 5’10" blonde with a face and body that could go on the cover of Cosmo. Great curves, long legs, when she walked into a room every guy would stop to look at her. She was also a kind and delightful person. Her boyfriend, a kind and delightful person himself, was about 5’3" with bad skin, excessive hair all over his arms, his back, growing out of his ears (his chest looked like a carpet), and a great big honking nose (It is also worth noting that she made just a little bit more money than he did).
This, however, was a couple I truly believed in. They really enjoyed being together and really made each other happy and really knew each other. Don’t know if this is significant but they had been platonic friends for about three years before becoming romantically involved. (He spent a long time watching her date a lot of really hot guys.)
No arguing on Principle
Tell me about people you know.
