Why do women hook up with good looking men but dont marry good looking men?

It seems women want to hook up with a good looking guy, but when they are looking to get married, they have a completely different set of standards. Why? Why can't the standards overlap? Why can't you marry a good looking tall in shape man? Why is that type of man only considered for hookups and not marriage? It's like 2 different spheres of men. One for hookups, one for marriage. And they rarely are the same. It seems that women throws looks completely out the window when looking for marriage partner? Why? Why can't they marry someone who is good looking and loyal and a good potential father and husband. It's not binary where all good looking men are bad husbands. There are good guys that are good looking too


It just seems women put men into various buckets and it's not necessarily a good strategy and seems very judgemental. A guy who looks like a true hunk of a man and an adonis can still be a great husband. He can't just instantly be characterized as only good for hookups

    Yeah, this isn't something that actually happens.

    Ideally the standards would overlap. But men too are willing to date flighty but physically attractive women even though if they have any sense they wouldn't want to marry them. This is because dating doesn't involve having to depend on someone to have sound judgement, to be a good co-provider and to potentially raise children with. Not all good-looking men make bad husbands, but what makes a good partner will be different for everyone.

    That's not true. Most attractive men have gotten married easily than the unattractive ones.
