But good-looking or not with that line of banter he wouldn't have lasted long.
One thing I will say for Ug is that he's not afraid to change sides when the boot is on the other foot. In fact, I've dated my way down the ugly tree stopping at every branch on the way if the truth be known.

Then celebrate because, while it may not seem like it on the surface, you are going to have a much happier life than the hapless woman who snapped up the Adonis lookalike.
I have always wondered how sane, pretty women manage to kiss a man who looks like a pig. We think they will cheat on us as soon as our back is turned. Back in my early 30s, after my then Italian fiancé ran off with my best friend I felt unattractive and frumpy.

If anything I find pretty boys with model good looks a bit of a turn-off.
