“Successful men who are in shape have the pickings when it comes to dating, [but] eventually they want a woman of substance.” Rochkind found that in Carly, 30, a lovely brunette who’s the vice president of her mother’s matchmaking company and a Syracuse University graduate.

Now, she’s more interested in “superballer” men with high-paying careers.Unlike the square-jawed bachelors who disrespected her, Argese is more boy-next-door in the looks department. “He’s not a model, but he’s so much more attractive in who he is as a person,” Young says.And best of all, she says, Argese doesn’t just see her as a status symbol.“When men see beautiful women, they are more concentrated on how she looks because they want to ‘have’ her, and so they don’t want to go deeper and get to know her,” says Isabell Giardini, a 22-year-old Italian beauty signed with Major Models.“And that’s why at the end of a date they wonder, ‘Oh that girl is so beautiful but so empty.’ That’s happened to me often.” Others say the stereotypes about pretty people being shallow are true, even if they’re hotties themselves.
