Comedian Danny Jolles has occasionally found himself in a situation that most people would envy: dating someone who’s out of his league in terms of looks. But while it may seem great to land a striking partner when you’re just an average-looking Joe or Jane, Jolles says that there are actually some serious downsides.
He says that people frequently react to a dating mismatch with confusion, trying to figure out how two variously attractive people could possibly end up together.
“You’re like a walking abstract painting as a couple.”
And while Jolles may manage to date out of his league, he says that his real talent is how good he is at being broken up with. He has a pretty understanding view about ending relationships.
“If you have sex with me, I’m rooting for you for the rest of my life.”
