If you're a 6.5-7 at my age with a million dollars you can virtually get anyone you want unless you're a cucked retard that is flat out shit with girls. 8 might be a big difference in terms of looks, but who gives a shit if its slightly easier to fuck an 8-9, plenty of 8s and 9s willing to fuck or marry and settle with someone with a million in the bank, totally dumb not to take the mil. It would only be worth if you were at the 4-5 level where you had no chance with even average girls to begin with.
Only slightly easier? Let me save up a little more and I'm off to Australia! But then, I‘d probably be close to 40 by then, so... :roll:

Slightly easier in comparison to being a 6.5 with a million dollars in the bank. Of course much more difficult for average guy.

This poll surprises me honestly, unless you're below a 6 there is zero appeal to picking the looks.

I assume I get a full head of hair with the looks choice so that's an easy pick.

1 million dollars isn't even fuck you money so how can it even be a debate on this site hah.

a no-brainer.

I'd take being an 8. If you were really good looking you could just be a waiter or something and get good tips or, since most of us (I hope) already have the skills and work ethic, just work a regular/decent job and be happy to come home to a good social life.

Hair was pretty much the only part of the equation here for me. Facially I may be an 8, or at least solid 7, but with hair that's a solid 8 (which I previously enjoyed in my late teens and early 20's). However I have a large forehead, even with an NW1 hair line it still wasn't small, so if I had a low hair line then it'd be God mode for me.

Being diffuse is always difficult in perceiving how you are viewed, I regularly sense some form of attention when out getting 1k Likes and party, or for example meeting a new large group of people at a house party on New Years, and feeling instant attention from 2 girls in particular, but one of them was looking right in my face consistently while I was sitting in a slightly darker part of the room (no light directly overhead at least) but once I got up to face those beaming lights, that was then the last I noticed her looking. I regularly get a sense of that as well, when walking in to a nightclub and seeing a girl stop to look and completely ignore her friends, but only for about 20-30 seconds before she clocks the receding and thin fringe.

That's not to say it's a deal breaker for everyone, I'd say from initial attention, about half of females will re-think it when seeing the hair and decide it's not for them (especially if they're mid 20's or younger) so it's really not the ultimate end in terms of finding women and I'm not complaining generally in that way, however it is a constant reminder of gee- 1 inch of dense hair would be even better. But of course I'm no mind reader so situations where you can tell it must be the hair are rare, the house party was a good one (but not as rare as you think, and naturally I do seek out seating arrangements in darker lighting lol, I guess the gym is another good example as I'm always aware of the darker spots but then get exposed in some other parts which are ridiculous for lighting) but nightclubs or pubs that can be dark in places are more common in finding this out, because your diffuse isn't instantly noticeable.

Lol as an ultimate cope you could say that fickle women who will pursue someone entirely based of an initial glance and the attraction they feel for them, these are really wasting your time. I do feel like the most valued relationships that had meaning for me, did not at all start out as an instant easy situation such as "I could slap her in the tit right now and she'd laugh it off" but instead involved some attraction, and also some level of understanding each other and being compatible. Or just not coming across as a fucking weirdo.

Anyway this isn't even a question to me if the 8 option is having a thick NW0. Here's another hypothetical option for no reason at all:

Would you rather be a full head 7, who is facially a 5, or an NW6 who remains a solid 8?

Finally I have an idea what you look like ;).

As for your question: easy for me, NW6.

Ah I might have thought you had an idea, maybe from when we PM'ed. I remember you asking if I feel comfortable or within my standards dating an 8 (but I think when I read it I was in a rush so just gave a brief reply) but the answer to that is- yes pretty much, it depends on the 8 though, some can be very high maintenance and others can be fairly normal and don't realise the aesthetic power they wield.

Some 8's can manage to be quite intimidating in the way you know they get lots of constant attention (and in small ways they can remind you of this), actually hell, even 6's can make you feel that way. Overall I wouldn't stick around very long if I felt the female had an overwhelming upper hand in the relationship, though at this point in my life I get a sense of this kind of snappiness early on anyway.

I'd rather be an 8, but that reflects my life situation.

Relative to other North Americans men of my age group, I'm like a 7/10 for money and a 4.5/10 for looks. I'm not sure about the exact numbers but that's about where I am. So obviously I'd rather be upgraded to 8/10 for looks than 8.5/10 for money.

Easy, the looks. But I'd rather be a 10 than an 8 though ;) People with extremely good looks are likely to profit off their looks anyway, become a model, actress/actor, marry someone rich etc. If you choose the money you just have the money :lol:
I don't think that a good looking person needs to become a model or actress to profit off their looks.

They can go into medicine, law, business, academia, and still profit off of their looks. They'll end up doing better than their equally competent peers, simply because everybody else instinctively enjoys their company more, gives them slightly more space, etc.

Oh yeah but they certainly are likely to marry a richer spouse, as you say.

An 8.

I don't care about being filthy rich. Just about being happy with myself and stuff.

I would take the million dollars and move to Mexico.

From there I would buy Viagra, hookers, and condoms.

After the money runs out, I would get a cheap Mexican hotel with carbon monoxide issues.

You're just so old.

You might as well save up for a nursing home.

I am pretty goddamned ugly... but I'd still go with the million dollars (assuming it's American and not Canadian/Australian/NZ). That's enough to live comfortably for a while and would help big time, whereas I feel suddenly waking up good looking would go completely to waste since I'm accustomed to living life as a gargoyle.

Can you show an NW6 who is actually an 8? That dosen't really exist to me, certainly not when the guy is in his 20's.

Agree on that. Even Kelly Slater which is a good looking fella, is simply not more than a 7 bald. For me, you can't be over a 7 without having good hair and I'm sure, the dating marked agrees on that.

Maybe the female user here can show us a male bald 8?

I would take the looks. I'm literally a 0/10.

If we were to base things off a normal distribution curve, where 5 is the average/median, and most of the relevant population are between a 4 and 6, an 8 would be very rare (maybe less than a few percent of the population).

You'd have a better chance at getting a million dollars via some other method.

I know its like of subjective, but as an 8 you'd probably end up looking more or less the same caliber as scott eastwood or the girl in my avi as a male or female, respectively
