We put a lot of emphasis on physical attraction but the truth is we don’t usually have our deepest relationships with the people who are the most attractive.
We put a lot of emphasis on physical attraction but the truth is we don’t usually have our deepest relationships with the people who are the most attractive. In fact, some of the worse relationships decisions we make are when we chose looks over character.
Don’t get me wrong, I love beauty and sexiness as much as the next person but the reality is once you get past the initial reaction to a person’s outer beauty it all boils down to compatibility, integrity and you can be yourself.
As you mature you’re more stimulated by the depths of someone’s conversation and their confidence not how good he looks with his shirt off or how big her ass is. We pass up wonderful partners everyday because he/she doesn’t measure up to societies standard of beauty.
When you spend time around other cultures it makes you realize just how shallow and superficial American culture is when it comes to choosing a mate. Instead of loyalty, we look at a woman’s cup size. And instead of stability we measure men by their ridiculous flamboyancy.
Yes, beauty is, and always will be a powerful factor in a choosing a partner, but once you grow up there’s nothing more important than love, respect, and security.
