Writer's Block: You've got the look

How important is physical attraction in selecting a romantic partner?

Immensely important. When it comes to the opposite sex I'm an aesthetically shallow person. I'm a shallow person overall, but you already knew that. (However, my idea of beautiful is more classically conditioned, so there's really not a lot of what the Modern World considers 'beautiful' which catches my eye. Unless you look like Vivian Leigh, Madame de Pompadour, or Judith of Bethulia, you needn't fear my amorous advances.) Still, there is something to be said for the personal energy inherent in every female body - their 'soul', if you will. I've often considered what would happen if two girls were to swap brains (a la some Steve Martin movie) if they would still look the same and the answer is emphatically no. A person's self-esteem, their choice of attire, their general outlook on life - all of these affect how they look, and they don't depend on physical appearance. Rather vice versa. Just look at Mona Lisa and try and tell me she would still look as intruiging if you thought she had the personality of an ice princess, instead of the obvious tease she is.

Great post! I wish you could follow up on this topic!

Please, can you PM me and tell me number of much more thinks about this, I am truly fan of one’s webpage…gets solved properly asap.

Yet, I wonder how this affected our relationship? I would definitely agree that a person's personality adds or subtracts to their looks. (you owe me an email)
