It's worth considering, for everyone really, that given the sheer number of people in the world, it's probably not a case of "not being attractive to x gender" and more "not attractive to anyone of that gender that you've met yet".

Also consider that some guys and girls are too scared to even admit that they find a person attractive, so that may skew your results.

Yeah, human neurochemistry is hardly suited for black-and-white definitions in just about anything.

Oh I know for a fact that there are women/girls who find me attractive in this world. There have just been things that have put me off or kept us apart. Like a thirty year age gap, or living two continents apart with no likelihood of seeing each other again, or a parent who can read faces like Tim Roth in 'Lie to Me'. No, really.

I know I'm not the least attractive person in the world. (I know that because I went to school with him) But apparently I put out a 'gay vibe'. Also, more recently, apparently a 'serial killer vibe' too. Which is... interesting. Apparently it's my bushy eyebrows and large height. And supposedly these things put women off.

But I think we all have days when we're single when we wonder if there is some special reason why we have been singled out for being lonely.

As it happens, I have a suspicion at the moment that a not at all un-pretty girl might have a crush on me... but that's a story for another bedtime.

Yeah, now try being an actual serial killer and trying to find love.

NEW BOOK IDEA.

Seriously, though, I feel ya. People apparently find me sort of intimidating. I had a roommate at one point (admittedly, he was a second semester freshman and I was a junior) who was afraid to speak to me for two weeks after moving into my dorm room.

I'm not even a big dude! I'm just quiet and don't show a lot of emotion on my face! I'd like to think I'm actually quite a nice person*. I can only imagine what the ladyfolk think....

*actually a pretty terrible person, but I'm nice to people, usually

Next Twilight Saga. ^ Right there.

But, yeah, it's just a matter of finding the people who find your odd/scary qualities endearing/sexy. (I say that like it's an easy thing) There's only so much you can control about how people react to you, just try and go with it and play it to your advantage.

My own solution is to try and stick to Wheaton's law, and to make it clear to people who I consider my friends that I would take a knife for them. And when that fails, I'll just be as impressive as possible in everything I do and demonstrate my superhuman abilities publicly.

You know, the usual.

I'm pretty sure if you just do a find-replace on Twilight to change "vampire" to "serial killer", you'd be done. And it would make a lot more sense.

Eyebrows can be trimmed, you realize...

And can someone explain why a sixty-year-old thing like the Kinsey scale still holds such sway in these conversations? Surely there's a more refined approach.

It's almost as if most people here's knowledge of such matters is limited to entry-level university or college psychology courses...

While Kinsey's work is rather flawed (to put it mildly), and the scale itself not much better, it is effective in presenting the idea of human sexuality existing on a spectrum, while still being simple to communicate to those who are not familiar with it.

Could be worse.

Could be a 160 year old piece of crap used to determine if someone is "fat" or not, and therefore "beautiful."

I'm a second year Psychology student and no one has ever introduced me to a modern alternative of the Kinsey Scale.

Frankly it's enough of a hassle to get people to accept the principle behind that "oudated" scale: that sexuality is a spectrum rather than a series of absolutes. We are more than 60 years behind the times.

Well there's the Hybrid Sexuality Scale, which expands upon the Kinsey Scale, and the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid.

Both of those share the same problem. They are useless for illustrating a point. They are way too complex for that, while offering little additional benefit. (EDIT: That is, when trying to point out that sexuality is a spectrum.)

EDIT: tl;dr Kinsey Scale is simple, that's why it gets used.

So here's a somewhat odd question:

How does a guy go about making himself less attractive to high school girls?

Because while my romantic life was a comic failure when I was in high school, apparently I'm now the hottest thing they've ever seen.

I'm 26 now, and I'm far too pretty for prison.
This is why we can't have nice things.

It's very simple. Start trying your hardest to impress them. They'll quickly lose interest.

Adopt a strict carding policy.

Other than that, (assuming that avoiding them is out of the question) you're just going to have to put up with nubile young women hanging on your every word. That is: just put up with it. I mean, a relationship takes two willing parties. So, as long as you keep telling yourself that 18 is way too fucking young and rejecting their advances, you'll be alright.
