Value in numbers
Personally, I think I’m a 7/10 (on a good day). Grade-wise, that’s equivalent to a B: it's a solid base, there’s room for improvement, and it’s a pretty good start.
Unlike those who think they’re a 10 but are really a 7.5, I have some shit to back it up. There’s the career, the social standing in social and creative communities, the appearance (not too horrific), the equity/investments, etc.
But, if the above statements holds true, then I haven’t dated people within my league. It’s not done on purpose. I was out of a certain someone's league; people thought he was barely a 5/10.
Then again, some people have said I’m more than a 7/10... and others think I'm less worthy of that grade. Either way, all of these numbers give me a headache. This is just too much math for me.
