My perception is currently limited since I attend a BYU YSA ward. But from talking with many other female students in YSA wards across the country, I have heard the same refrain:
“I feel like only the attractive girls actually get home-taught. If they don’t find you attractive, the home-teachers either ignore you completely or talk to you for two minutes at church and count that as the monthly visit.”
This is not to say that every single man in a singles ward does this. However, I am curious to hear other people’s experiences: if you are female, have you ever felt that your hometeachers’ dedication to hometeaching you was somewhat variant on your attractiveness? If you are male, were you swayed by your hometeachee’s attractiveness? If the answers are yes, should this change, and how?
