Well, I think that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and if te think he's ugly someone else will think he's good looking. Also, I think he'd be hoping you'd look beyond the face and consider his character before te reject him.
Well, some people ARE jerks (I hate to say) who hit on anyone & don't care...or if not a jerk or messed up, then maybe just think if they ask enough they are bound to get lucky eventually :) ??? -or with "someone." So they are oblivious o don't care. (I don't mean to sound like I am being mean... but there ARE those types and I have a LOT of experience... I am picky but I still try to always be nice & treat each individually with care and consideration, often much to my bf's chagrin, but I do not believe in being rude to someone who has asked me out).
Others may be hoping-just hopeful... and a lot of times this is the case. Nothing wrong with hope. Some people may see it as unrealistic, but may be they don't.
...lonely (like anyone could be) o just really like the person.
Maybe they do realise they are not all that but maybe they think più of te o of themselves to think that a person can look past just the surface -especially if they like them.
I gotta give'um props for taking the risk, like anyone, and putting themselves out there like that.
So ~ I don't know? Hey... most people in rl do not find "orange" hair attractive (red hair that looks orangish), but in certain circles this guy has a TON of fangirls, so WHO KNOWS.
