If you are attracted to masculine men, could you fall for someone with a face like a Klingon?

Asked by ETpro (34415points) August 27th, 2010

Star Trek’s Mr. Worf, admirably played by Michael Dorn, was certainly a man’s man—er, OK a very manly Klingon. But he had a face that looked a bit like it had been molded from birth into the shell of a horseshoe crab. If you find manly men attractive, would you be able to ignore the oddities of his facial looks and go for him as the hunk he obviously was?

What a lot of people call “ugly,” I often call “interesting.” And I love interesting faces. Also, once I got over my fear of Worf as a child, I totally had a crush on him. So… Yes.

Not my type dear. Besides he looks like he’s been shat on from a great height.Giraffe maybe or perhaps an elephant :¬)

Definitely, if he’s gentle. (-; I think he’s kinda handsome.

I never even watched that show and he caught my eye.
I am not attracted to men that I can beat up ;)

@Aster, actually I’m not. But my puns do keep me in a constant state of jeopardy with my friends and co-workers and may now my fellow Jellies. ;-)

He has a great voice but it might get irritating after thirty years. lol

Have you never noticed that the longer you know someone the less you notice their face? Or maybe it’s, the more you find interesting about their face? I don’t know how to put it. I could fall in love with a man whom I got to know and felt an affinity for. By that time I would no longer be able to objectively say whether or not he was attractive.

Okay, I don’t find manly men attractive but I totally find Worf attractive. As long as he doesn’t talk, we’re in business.

Yes, surprisingly. I’d go for a large, muscled, “manly” guy with a not-so-gorgeous face (granted he was a nice guy) before I’d go for a scrawny guy with a model face.

For some reason, I always liked Mr. Worf…I’d hit that

le_inferno's avatar

Nah… I’m the opposite of @Facade, I’m all about the face.

To all, thanks for your honest thoughts. @Trillian, works the same for me. Being in love with a woman takes my focus off her face and physical features, or lets me see the uniqueness as beautiful.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir I liked Mr. Worf too. Michael Dorn did a wonderful job with the character. And lots of people must have thought so, because Mr. Worf appeared in more eppisodes and movies in the Star Trek franchise than any other character.
