My friend Ian was talking about the two women he was interested in recently. One of them is kind, has a lot going for her, and is attractive. The other is “stunning”, a little distant towards him, and is giving him mixed signals.
I asked him which one he got along with the best and he said they both are cool. But he thinks that Ms. Attractive has the potential of losing her looks. At first, I thought this was an extremely shallow way of thinking. Then I thought about Ian and his obsession with his own looks.
I believe a lot of people have this fear about themselves and sometimes they project it on others. I suppose it’s a real concern for him personally, therefore, he thinks the same way about his future wife. If you are seeking a long-term partner, do you ever worry about their looks fading?
Perhaps you’ve heard the following before: If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life, Never make a pretty woman your wife. A man is only as faithful as his options. So basically the theory is that when it comes to relationships, the more attractive you are, the less likely you are to be a good partner. I don’t know if I agree with this or not. What do you think?
Do extremely attractive people make bad partners? Do you think that you invest more in a relationship if you are less attractive (or think you are) than your partner?
Where and how do you think a person’s looks and their character intersect?
