I just mean these ladies were normal, pretty women, and their partners were so very on the opposite side of the spectrum.
I pointed out this realization to my sister and asked if she was as unsurprised by it as I was.
Nor am I saying it would fix every guy’s anxiety issues or unhealthy relationship habits.
In order to examine the gender/looks gap firsthand, just find your nearest gaggle of middle-aged humans: The ladies all look like they've just rubbed fancy emulsions into their crow's feet after having jogged ten miles to the chia-seed buffet (because they probably did).
The guys mostly look like Gary Busey after a three-day doughnut-and-bourbon bender. Like many of us—on every point along the gender spectrum—I spent my formative years experimenting with just how much stupidity, selfishness, and humorlessness I could tolerate for the sake of dating hotties.
Something suddenly dawned on me after a few seconds, something obvious and slightly disturbing.
All of the women were beautiful, and all of their husbands were not. I'm not talking about a Donald Trump and Ivana Trump situation.
