As long as you realize that looks aren't every and insist only on a supermodel type I think you fine. Being realistic is a big part of it.

Who'd want a supermodel? I'd just like a normal (I know, event THAT is asking a lot) woman. Not a pampered, self-indulgent, self-absorbed twit.

I think this is one of those things that is especially problematic with online meeting. Attraction is tied up in so many things and so many facets and even the homliest of males can be powerfully attractive because they exude masculinity or have a deep bear laugh that transforms their face. And, the same for women. I have never considered myself beautiful, not hideous, just plain and ordinary, but my husband thought I was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen and he really thought that. The things that truly make a person beautiful can't be guaged by a photograph and a few emotigrams. And, even purely physcial beauty is variable and differentially appreciated by others. A person may be ordinary at first glance and then they smile, or they have remarkable eyes or beautiful hands or any number of single traits that can reach out and spark another's interest. But, as others have noted, if there is no inner beauty then the initial physical beauty pales.

I agree Lauren, there is a difference between attractive looks, and BEING attracted to someone. When it happens it really does feel like you're with the most beautiful on earth.

Sharing the same faith in belief and practice are always number one in my book, but if the chemistry/physical attraction isn't there, how could you move forward?

If that supermodel happens to share the same virtues and values that I hold, I'll definitely take her no doubt! Now, granting this particular supermodel takes me too, I'll be one very lucky and happy guy!

Now, to address one post that asks "what then if she becomes disfigured?" My answer is this "in my eyes, she will forever be the supermodel that I fell in love with."

On a different note, seemingly this topic is taking a turn towards a discussion of physical beauty AND virtuosity as if both can not coexist in a person.

They can, Kahirup. Often are. More often, though, society conditioning has caused physical beauty to be considered, even by those who would by all commonly accepted standards be so labled, become to believe their worth as a person is derived solely by that measure.

Give me a normal, virtuous, 'together' lady. That's all. Not looking for the runway model or airbrushed poster in the mall. They are not real anyway.

You're right on the money, Mary. I really think that all of the qualities mentioned in that canned question are necessary, physical attraction and faith go hand in hand. hug

I wonder, though, if as we advance in holiness and virtue and become more like Christ, the physical attributes of one's spouse become less important as we turn our mind's eye together toward Our Lord. scratchchin

I agree as well. One can be attracted by the beauty of the individual. I always think that if one is holy and beautiful on the inside, they offer their own kind of attraction cupid
