Someone mildly attractive can become very attractive because of their personality, but if you find someone wholly unattractive, you are just wasting your time and theirs treating them like a charity case. Ultimately, it’s unkind. Women should date people they are attracted to, just as men do, without being shamed for having standards. Anyway, perhaps you ought to go rescue a woman with a deformed face from her “hell”?
Yes, the man in the story has a smaller dating pool than a taller man. This goes for every desirable physical attribute. That’s life, not everyone wants to date us and vice versa.
