Theres some interesting in evolutionary psychology on this subject of which person in the couple is percieved as more / less attractive. It sets up a dynamic for sure. Author is David Buss Yeah, that sounds really interesting. I don't really know where I stand on the issue. I used to be extremely insecure around women but that has changed quite a bit over the years. I definately used to think that boundary lines and leagues existed but I'm not so sure anymore. I have met some women lately that have given me very good hints they were interested in me who I would have normally thought were out of my league. The girl who I am currently dating is also beautiful and I think she would qualify as out of my league as well. I think that some boundaries definately still do exist but that they are not based solely on attractiveness. For example, the way I look and dress, what I do in my free time and my interests are a pretty strong indication of who I am. As a result, I tend to attract girls who look and dress in a similar way and girls that have similar interests.
