We’ve all been there. You’re in a bar, you’ve kept your eyes on someone who’s taken your fancy and after the initial ‘Will they? Won’t they?’ you’re finally chatting to them and this is it, you’ve cracked it and there’s no looking back now.
Except OH GOOD GOD how do you escape the inane drivel coming out of their mouth?
Yeah, this scenario is pretty common because surprise! surprise! Looks aren’t everything.
So I picked three persons to answer this crucial question. Follow:
“They matter UNTIL you’re in love. I’m sure you’ve noticed many couples who are madly in love yet clearly are not on par with one another in the looks department.
“Looks matter most in the initial courtship.
“All in all, looks play a strong role in the initial courtship especially if you’re competing with others who are far better looking.
“Average looking guys have absolutely nothing to worry about. If you’re not downright hideous and you play your cards right, you have a very good chance of winning over the girl and having a long-lasting relationship.”
“Yes, to men, looks do matter. They like a pretty face and a fine body. Women, on the other hand, can be attracted to a man if he’s decent-looking, as long as he has money to make up for it.
“Looks are important because this is the basis for sexual attraction.
“But I will tell you one thing: the most attractive person eventually becomes ugly if they have an unflattering personality
— if they’re neglectful, abusive, boring, or dim.
“I went out with a guy who looked like a Calvin Klein model who had the capacity to put me to sleep on my feet.
“And I was crazy about an okay-looking guy who was a little chubby because, wow! His personality, creativity, and intelligence was off the hook.
“We all grow older and show signs of aging, but as long as we do it with style, and try to take as best care of ourselves as we can, beauty never really fades as long as we remain engaged, communicative, compassionate, and kind.”
“One day, a young guy and a young girl fell in love.
But the guy came from a poor family. The girl’s parents weren’t too happy.
“So the young man decided not only to court the girl but to court her parents as well. In time, the parents saw that he was a good man and was worthy of their daughter’s hand.
But there was another problem: The man was a soldier.
“Soon, war broke out and he was being sent overseas for a year. The week before he left, the man knelt on his knee and asked his lady love, “Will you marry me?” She wiped a tear, said yes, and they were engaged.
“They agreed that when he got back in one year, they would get married. But tragedy struck.
“A few days after he left, the girl had a major vehicular accident. It was a head-on collision.
“When she woke up in the hospital, she saw her father and mother crying. Immediately, she knew there was something wrong.
“She later found out that she suffered brain injury. The part of her brain that controlled her face muscles was damaged. Her once lovely face was now disfigured.
“She cried as she saw herself in the mirror. “Yesterday, I was beautiful. Today, I’m a monster.” Her body was also covered with so many ugly wounds.
“Right there and then, she decided to release her fiancé from their promise. She knew he wouldn’t want her anymore. She would forget about him and never see him again.
“For one year, the soldier wrote many letters — but she wouldn’t answer. He phoned her many times but she wouldn’t return her calls.
“But after one year, the mother walked into her room and announced, “He’s back from the war.”
“The girl shouted, “No! Please don’t tell him about me. Don’t tell him I’m here!”
“The mother said, “He’s getting married,” and handed her a wedding invitation.
“The girl’s heart sank. She knew she still loved him—but she had to forget him now.
“With great sadness, she opened the wedding invitation. And then she saw her name on it! Confused, she asked, “What is this?”
“That was when the young man entered her room with a bouquet of flowers. He knelt beside her and asked, “Will you marry me?”
“The girl covered her face with her hands and said, “I’m ugly!”
The man said, “Without your permission, your mother sent me your photos. When I saw your photos, I realized that nothing has changed. You’re still the person I fell in love. You’re still as beautiful as ever. Because I love you!”
“In true love, importance of looks doesn’t matter. May be sometimes you fall for someone because of his/her looks but when a relationship starts, and real love develops, your partner’s looks will not be an important issue for you.
“Love means to give your soul to your partner not just your heart.”
