Does anyone relate to this feeling?

I have a problem. Whenever someone doesn't like (usually in a romantic way) another because of how he/she looks, I feel a sting. It's not because I'm some selfless, caring creature or anything. I think I feel that way because it relates to me in some way. It's like, I'd imagine how hurtful that would be if someone felt that way about me. The thing is, I probably wouldn't feel that way if I know for sure it'll never happen to me. I'm sure it has happened in the past, and it will happen in the future. And the worse part is...I've been like that before: not being interested in someone romantically because of his physical attributes. I feel like cutting off my romantic life altogether. I don't want this to happen to me, but I do it to guys. I feel a cognitive dissonance (I think that's the right term).
