Exactly what the title says. Who do you think is more attractive, you or your SO? And what do you think is the best “mix” of attractiveness?
Recently some friends and I were having a conversation about how we almost never see a couple that is “equally” attractive. We started debating what is “better”, being more or less attractive than your partner. Just curious to see what the hive thinks! And yes I know this is somewhat superficial, but I’m genuinely curious and bored at work so humor me please :-).

I feel like my SO is more attractive.

I think we’re both smokin’ hot.
ETA: I don’t think there is a ‘best’ mix of attractiveness.

@spezia: I think my FI is more attractive, and he thinks I’m more attractive 🙂
– as far as other people are concerned:

I would say that most of the couples I know are probably equally attractive. Probably. I’m not sure. I’ve never really thought about it before.

@spezia: I think my DH is more attractive than me, but recently a friend made a joke about how much hotter I am than him. So who knows!

@Hyperventilate: I agree, but one of my friends was saying she preferred being more attractive because it made her feel more “confident” in the relationship. Which is odd because there are plenty of unattractive guys that cheat all the time, so I have no idea what she thinks having a leg up in the looks department is going to do…

@ANGELaaimt: Ha ha ditto on the care-o-meter!
I am more attractive, I’ll admit it. People say it all the time so there is no denying it.

I think from the outside, people would say I’m more attractive. He’s definitely attractive too, but my makeup helps me a lot. 😉

My husband and I look really different, so I guess it’d depend on who you ask lol. To the general population, on even ground (i.e. no make-up), I’m probably more attractive. To me, he’s definitely way more attractive (tall, dimples, gray eyes), but he always says he feels like he won the lottery with me. I guess it really doesn’t matter since we’re both happy with each other. I would think that in general most females will be better looking than their SOs due to make-up (unless their SOs wear make-up too).

I think my bf is a babe, and I think that people probably would say he is more attractive. If I was skinnier we’d probably be even.

Most people seem to think I’m more attractive, and seeing as at first I was on the fence as to whether I was physically attracted to my FI (that lasted until the second I saw him and felt butterflies at the beginning of our second date), I’m inclined to agree. I’m mostly very confident, but if I thought my FI was objectively more attractive than me I think I’d feel insecure about it. I read once that statistically relationships where the girl is more attractive last longer, I mean, Beauty and the Beast lived happily ever after 😛 ….though the Beast became a Prince at the end so maybe then they were even.

@ladyamalthea: You know, I think I’ve heard that statistic too. And now I’m off to try and find the article I read it in…

I think we’re fairly equally attractive.
Back in high school I’d have said with 100% certainty that he was ‘the hot one.’ But I feel like my appearance (and self-esteem) has improved over the last 4-5 years.
