    I apologize to anyone that I offended with my original post but I wanted to be as bluntly honest with the forum as I am with myself.

    Oh so easy to be "bluntly honest" when one hides behind the Internet. You are a pathetic little coward troll, who is for all we know a morbidly obese housewife in a ornage MuMu living in a trailer outside of Debuque.

    I personally cannot think of one guy who posts on here who isn't at least a 5 out of 10. Then add the fact that the great style, grooming and clothing choices automatically raises the attractiveness quotient 2-3 points it tells you that every man here is at least well above average.

    Chill out, he's not trolling.

    I however am in with the "ridiculously good-looking" crowd with Jason, so it doesn't matter.

    And another member's response was

    Please visit the company's website for the cold hard truth.


    I don't need your company website to explain the cold hard truth about my friends' experiences, but thanks. I'm sure there are some people who are so horrifically unattractive that they find it difficult to establish a basic circle of relationships or generally to function with any basic level of self-confidence. But I don't think this conversation is about the John Merricks of the world, it's about the Joe Schmoes. And normal, well-adjusted, reasonably well-educated Joe Schmoes can manage perfectly successfully in life with or (preferably) without "image consultants".

    Style Forum needs a subforum where only the ridiculously good looking can post in it. [​IMG]

    Very interesting post and thread. The first post talked and asked about insecurities and many of the answers severely exposed numerous insecurities.

    Let me try to make the point again that style has a lot more to it than just looks. It is the totality of how you dress, groom, speak, carry yourself, interact with others, etc. I find that personality has a great deal more bearing on one's perceived style and overall attractiveness than mere looks.

    I think the original observation is interesting but beside the point.

    I have not seen many pics of SF members but I think the original topic is an interesting one. I think the general premise requires one to go somewhere that they may not be comfortable going, however, as Freud said, the unexamined life is not worth living, right.

    I think that I fit in a category of slightly above average looking. I understand that we are discussing "looks" from the neck up, however, several years spent bodybuilding competitively helps up my stock a little bit IMO.

    My main reason for dressing the way I do is that it serves as an outlet for personal expression. At 26 yo, I'm still very introverted and use my daily dress to express how im feeling on a day to day basis.

    Sorry if this post is slightly off topic as I'm 1/2 way into a bottle of smirnoff

    Cheers..

    I have read that attractive people are more likely to get the job after an interview.

    ...unless they interviewee is naturally thin and is being interviewed by overweight jealous whores.[​IMG]

    It seems a relatively small segment of the membership actually post pictures of their faces. I've met quite a few and would say that we're fairly representative of the general population.

    Can you really judge how attractive other dudes are? I can't. I can guess, and sometimes get it right at the extremes, but otherwise have no clue whatsoever.

    Attractive and handsome are two different concepts. That said, I can't see why it'd be difficult to determine either (subjectively).

    I think most single men dress in a fashion that will make them more visually appealing, but whether it's compensation, or augmentation, is a subjective question.

    I got into dressing well as a means of feeling more attractive and mature when I was about 17, though I didn't think myself either unstylish or unsightly beforehand.

    At the current evolution of my style, I think I'm actually *too* well-dressed for a great many girls, and can either come across as intimidating, or a bit too serious. Yet, there are greater joys in wearing a nice coat and beautiful shoes, than settling for a tshirt and trainers: there are times when that is what I'll wear, but not all the time!

    As I've gotten older, I'm more comfortable with my body shape, and I've found a hairstyle which suits me a lot better than when I was young. I'm told I'm quite attractive, though it's often my outfits which make me stand out in a crowd.

    Clothes can do much more than appearances for you, not only can they make you look attractive, but they say something about your personality too.
