My ex is dating an ugly guy

A major perk of dating someone with a checkered past is that they most likely won't judge you for yours.You have both made questionable choices or have done hurtful things at some point, so there is a mutual understanding that mistakes happen, and they don't mark the end of the world.For part of their lives, addicts have been consumed with obtaining drugs and finding money to pay for them.Even if they swear they're clean, trusting them completely is going to take time.It's hard to believe they could save money when the thought of buying drugs is always lurking in the back of their minds.They also have probably become experts at lying and making excuses about their whereabouts, friends and money, so you'll want to check up on them constantly. If recovering addicts are trying to push their pasts as far away from the relationship as possible, they will eventually resent you for questioning them.This quality could go either way, depending on the type of person you are.If you're a fan of space, inconsistent talking and independence, dating an addict will bring out your worst.

OK, before I dive into this, I already know some guys are reading this and getting ready with their trigger fingers to type out some angry responses. The idea for this post was first sparked when a friend shared a Maxim article on Facebook titled, “Women Are Happier When Their Partner Is Less Attractive Than They Are, Says New Study.” Without reading the article, I commented, “ Now, I still stand by what I said, and I’ll get into that more in a second, but the article itself talks more about the pressure of being physically attractive.

Basically it says that if a woman is dating a guy who isn’t a total hunk with a six pack, then she won’t feel bad for having that extra piece of bread, as opposed to dating someone who’s super hot and then feeling pressured to match his attractiveness.
