In response to something Chronos said in another thread, the girl I mentioned before is not whom or the standard I image I have in mind when I'm talking about women in general. I don't have a set image like that. I've been attracted to various looks -- blonde, brunette, ginger, Chinese, etc, and a variety of personalities. She just happened to be one of the prettiest.

I don't see why everyone hates Rbert Patterson. He just looks like a normal guy, I laugh when girls say he's ew just to not be like the rest.

They seem to be taking the celeb pics literally.


I get it. The celebrities are collections of symbols that represent the ideas in your heads.

I couldn't do that, but fair enough if it works for you. The problem with using a person as a symbol is that they also symbolise themselves, so that can be confusing.

How about drawing pictures of the people in your minds? That might be interesting.


How about going in a slightly different direction? Rather than the celebrity and how they look, which fictional characters that the celebrity plays are we attracted to (independent of the actor/actress who plays them). When I was much younger, I was attracted to Superman. I mistook this for an attraction to Christopher Reeve and saw him in another movie. Nothing happened. So it was Superman and not the actor who played him that was attractive. It happened again when Lord of the Rings came out and I was attracted to Aragorn. So I decided to see a different movie Viggo Mortenson (who played Aragorn) was in and was repulsed. (It was G.I. Jane where he plays a repulsive person.) What do Superman and Aragorn have in common? They are absolutely alpha males in their respective stories but mainly heroic and world saving. So that's what I like. The heroism combined with the alpha-ness. (To be consistent I guess I should have married a fireman but I didn't.)


So what fictional characters are others attracted to, independent of the actor/actress who played them?


I like this idea! You should start a new thread for it.

That's not why I don't like him. I just don't find him attractive, he looks creepy to me. That's just my option though.

I didn't even know they were celebrities. I defined what I meant by attributes via examples in the form of the caption above the photos, so I'm not sure how to rephrase the question such that those who don't understand would understand.

To me, that's like saying 'imagine you have been asked to cook a meal that you would like to eat. What ingredients would you use?'. And in both cases I'm unable to answer. It's not about the individual features/ingredients but how they combine into a whole.

Let's try this again. When I ask what type of women you envision when you are speaking of women on this forum, I don't mean what particular woman do you find attractive specifically. I mean what attributes do you envision?


Here's one :arrow:

Image

She is not obsessed with style, looking good & she does not look slu*ty. She also looks very geeky/dorky & like she has no desire to be popular & doesn't care what the mass thinks. She looks very awkward & I find that CUTE :oops: Ugly Betty is the opposite of ugly to me
