If I liked the guy and was attracted to him that would be fine with me. I find it very sad that there are so many threads where people state that this and that are dealbreakers, some of which are soooo petty. What ever happened to finding a partner that was kind, honest, and respectful? Now they can't have big noses, must be at a perfect weight, have no kids, pay for 1/2 of the dates, have a full head of hair, and so on and on. It is just sad.

Really depends on your face, there are tons of great looking men with big noses, because most of the time it is symmetrical with the rest of their features.

I large nose adds character and interest to a face. And you know what they say about men with big noses don't you?

Spoiler
They smell so good.

It is indeed sad. Then they complain why there are single and miserable . Sooo glad I've matured and shed my vanity or I would have not married a kind, honest, respectful and sooo much more guy.

Noses that are proportion to the eyes, cheeks, ears, face structure are usually fine. A human being looks for symetrical face whether they know it or not. It is an animal instinct just like other animals. They look at the peacock with the prettiest feathers, monkey with the reddest butt, deer with the biggest antlers, and elephant with the longest trunk. In the animal world it's healthiness and surival of the fittest that attracts a mate.

I mean, seriously? Nose size? Maybe in 4th grade.
^^^ This. Nose sizes, breast size, flat butts, hair colour, nothing like looking at individual parts over the sum of a person.

Thank you. Political correctness rears its ugly head. It's instinctive. The same way that a person decides if that nose is too much ... or it's ok. The same thing as the quest for "peaches and cream" and not women who are atypical of their gender. For those who first notice a face, and not a body, the nose is the face's most prominent feature. It can make someone unattractive, if it's exaggerated. So, if there are deal-breakers out there like height, knowledge of pop culture, not drinking beer and backslapping (like you should), then it's acceptable to have this one as a deal-breaker. A nose job costs about what braces do, or less, and I paid for my own braces as an adult. Better yet, a nose job only takes about an hour and about a week of bruising. If someone lives in an urban area and it's a feature that is commonly eradicated in teens, and they see their dating options limited, work on the piggy back and pay the visit to the plastic surgeon. What's the big deal? It's analogous to people getting braces, for the most part.

Here you go - look at the improvement - this girl got a chin augmentation, too:

习近平主持召开中央财经委员会第四次会议

Some men get the procedure done - better than what he started with:

国家统计局:2017年全国房地产开发投资109799亿元 比上年名义增长7.0%

Sorry, I can't help it that I grew up in L.A., and know so many people who have done this. Almost all of them looked better. They weren't whackjobs. They just wanted to be at their best. They just have to be prepared to answer the comment: "Mommy and daddy, I have a big nose, and you guys don't, so I don't understand how that happened."

Of course I can only speak for myself: some large noses I find attractive, some large noses I find not attractive.

Can't state a single all-encompassing policy for feature type such as this.
It really does depend on the particular instance, how it manifests on the person in question.

Peter Buck of R.E.M. has a long skinny pointy nose & I used to think he looked good.
Chris Isaak has a nose that isn't exactly small, and he's visually appealing to me.
There are more examples but I can't call them to mind right now (they'll probably pop into my brain as soon as I post this).

It's like saying pick an eye or hair color-and I may prefer one color, yet meet & fall for a guy with another color eyes/hair.

I'm going to disagree with you here. I think it's kind of a chicken and egg thing, like straight teeth. Crooked teeth may be jarring to Americans because sending your kid to the orthodontist is pretty much standard these days. Likewise when people see women with "augmented" breasts so much that normal breasts seem weird to people anymore. I think the nose is going to fall in the same category. My oversized nose works just fine in foreign countries and with foreign women. Maybe not as fine here in the United States of Plastic Surgery. I still say this is bait and switch because you have no idea of what your kids are going to turn out like given all the remodeling people do these days.
