A lot of words have been written about men trying to date women they consider to be out of their league.
Well what about a woman who wants to date a man she feels is out of her league? Before we get to my answer, let’s really understand the question. Is there a secret book of rules and regulations that dictates a strict caste-like system of dating hierarchies in which you can only date men who belong to a specific level of membership?
I'm starting to wonder if I need to lower my standards because maybe I'm the problem. I know that that's all I really cared about at that age. Yes I've thought about it but the problem is I'm always in a college environment where almost everyone is 18-22.
I'm one of the only 21 year old girls I know who has never been in a relationship. I know I've heard people say "Oh, well guys that age only want sex anyway" but I know a lot of girls my age with real boyfriends.
Let him know you’re interested and see what happens.
If you decide to take a chance and make the first move with a man you consider to be “out of your league” there’s one thing you must do to have a shot at success: Be Confident. It transforms average looking women (and men) into super attractive and desirable dating partners.
Of course, everyone on the Internet took this in without even blinking, accepting that people are complex and varied in their desires and understanding that attraction is a complicated beast. To judge by the collective outrage over the episode, you would’ve thought that Dunham had murdered Ned Stark while dressed as Hitler and simultaneously shooting kittens out of a cannon that was also on fire.

It never ended up working out with him, even though I still hope I can find someone else I fancied as much as him. I've never been in an actual bf/gf relationship or have had sex or got to experience any of the fun bf/gf things. I think this happens a lot, especially to people our age when are just now getting into adulthood, and we're still figuring out who we are. I'm starting to wonder if I need to lower my standards because maybe I'm the problem.Sure, that might be the case, but I’ve seen plenty of cases where it wasn’t. The only way you’ll find out is if you give it a shot and go for it. You’ve got nothing to lose except for a bruised ego. It’s a self-reinforcing story; we don’t accept the idea that someone who looks like Lena Dunham could score with a guy who looks like Patrick Wilson because we never see it in the media.We never see it in the media because nobody accepts the idea that it could happen and so like an oroborous with an eating disorder, the cycle perpetuates itself.After all, many of us know someone who punches above his or her weight class, dating people who they – by all rights – should have based on the flawed idea that the only thing that people value is looks.
