Oh, I guess it's more than 35 years of marriage at this point for my folks - I am one of those people who is great with small numbers but not large ones. Sad thing for a historian, but if it falls between a weekly lesson plan and a century I tend to be vague...
Agree with Carl. I have had interest from a very attractive woman. But it was more of a pain. On again/off again. Once I offered an apology, but it was refused. And I was reminded again and again that it was refused. I think because she was attractive she had more of a shell.
Good posts, all....I was worried all women were interested in Justin Bieber!
Well, if we're listing comparisons to celebrities...Justin Bieber is how old?!? I am actually somewhat disturbed when I hear grown women talking about how he's attractive...I don't get it. He looks like a high-schooler.
Antonio Banderas is very attractive even though he's my dad's age - mostly because he's very devoted to his wife, he can dance, and oh, the speaking voice doesn't hurt either. Sean Connery, Peter O'Toole...maybe I just have a thing for accents. Hmm. There's something to consider.
That's the best way I've ever seen that point articulated. The key word is initial. Everyone knows that physical attraction alone won't maintain the interest. The character has to be there as well.
Elizabeth, I totally agree with you. It is truistic to say that looks grow old and there's no point arguing about that. I am not trying to postulate that it is just physical looks that women (or men) look for. Ultimately it boils down to the character. What I was saying is this: physical looks provide the spark through which initial attraction is generated. What ever happens after that is beyond my point. The other point I was trying to get across is some people (as Nancy insisted I use) are reluctant to admit that it is this physical looks that initially catches their attention, ergo, it is that physical look that made the other person attractive. Related to this second point, I ask, what is so wrong admitting that one is attracted to a beautiful woman (or a handsome man)?
I won't argue, nor was it my position, that physical looks is all that makes a man (or woman) attractive. I would dare say that personally, looks do matter to catch my attention. Do I put a premium on it when deciding if a woman is a potential date or spouse? My answer is NO as I agree with you that character will ultimately be the deciding factor.
And yes, I have read Beauty and the Beast. I have even seen the Disney movie.
BTW, do you have an answer to the question I posted in response to Khoa? Just asking.
Would you mind reposting the question, Kahirup?
Hugs Nancy! I am just starting to find out there are actual men that are willing to consider the G-free life style but some that actually are already Gluten Free! Granted those men are so far all taken . But they are out there and that is very good :) There is Hope!
G-free living is tough one... but so worth it when you consider the consequences! We are all so unique! When you click with the right guy you're able to have the "conversation"... You know what I mean! Of all the men I've dated, most haven't seemed to care and were willing to work with it or around it. Only one man was freaked out by it! It was an interesting reaction! "You mean you don't eat bread!" Well, not quite! G-free makes you into a GREAT cook! Don't you agree? I always work THAT into the conversation! When I reflect on my various relationships in my life, I realize how much I love my family members' and friends' little intricacies! Message me if you want to talk g-free living! Hijack over!
Real quick you are right ! Except I can't cook I try but seriously not a good cook. I give extra extra attractive points to a MAN that Cooks and doesn't mind that I try but I am not at all good.
