If she's borderline you can try her out. I've been lucky in that every girl I've met has looked at least a little better than her pics, but it's definitely disappointing and probably won't really work if she's still below your standards.
So I am in a pickle. I met this really cool girl on a dating website, we have a lot in common, got her number, been texting, but she's not exactly the most attractive. She's just average. Part of me wants to take her out cause we've been hitting it off, but I also don't want to waste time and money on someone who, based on her pics, isn't the most attractive girl I've been with.
Worst thing about me personally is there are girls that I think are plenty good looking for -me- but I'd be embarrassed to show my family or friends. That's pretty damn fucked I guess.
