What is life like for an unattractive man? (self.AskMen)

For men, it seems like being a 'provider' is no longer enough to make one desirable in this day in age. Equal rights and traditional family roles have changed a lot over the last few decades and women are more independent than they ever have been. I will be the first to admit that I am particularly shallow when it comes to men I date and I really wish I wasn't this way.
Earlier, while in a grocery store, I saw a man in front of me who was clearly losing his battle with baldness but was purchasing Rogaine. This got me thinking about what it must feel like to be put into a woman's shoes when it comes to personal appearance, knowing that you have to worry about aesthetic competition among your fellow men. The poor guy was really nervous and I wanted to just kiss him and tell him that it will all be ok, but I don't even think I believe it turns out ok for everyone. A lot of my single guy friends who are on the unattractive side of the spectrum seem to give up after a certain point and totally let themselves go. It's sad.
Ugly men - what is it like for you? Life, dating, relationships, public encounters...
