Most people in general are not. Mathemeticians are NOT inherently
unattractive. YOU seem to find them so. Maybe some other people do too. I'd
like to mention that when I posted that some people are primarily attracted
to mathemeticians, I wasn't just pulling your chain. For at least ten years
I was only attracted to dark-haired midwesterners who had at some point
been professors of mathematics. I'm not that weird, either; the ones I met
were good-looking, all but one had all their hair, they were smart, patient
and funny. It's ok with me if you aren't attracted to mathemeticians, I'd
just like you to know that your assumption that your tastes are general
could be reworked.
