If you are like me, you often find yourself staring at someone without realizing you’ve been staring. Sometimes it’s because you find them physically attractive, or they have something in their teeth or hair and you’re debating on telling them or not. It could be that all of a sudden you see the beauty within them, which somehow instantly makes everything else about them more appealing, sometimes making your original view shift.
We, meaning those of us who were born in the 80’s or 90’s, or hell, even the 2000’s, are known to judge people on their physical appearance. But who could blame us right? That’s kinda all we’ve known. Growing up with celebrities, magazines, television, and movies, it all creates this image of what we, and those around us, should look like. We even judge people on how they act or carry themselves. Now I am not saying that appearances don’t matter, because they do, and if I were to say otherwise I would be lying. However, they aren’t everything, because look eventually fade. If you’re a smoking hot guy, but you have a shitty personality, the rest doesn’t matter anymore. Have you ever encountered someone like that? Sometimes it’s not even that they are douchey, but that they are just plain dumb. People like that are instantly unattractive to me, and I want nothing to do with them. Unfortunately, I can’t say that for everyone. Some people are just that shallow, which is unfortunate.
Recently I asked on my Facebook, “what do you find most attractive in the opposite sex.” I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I got. (I have been wanting to write this for a while now, but decided that I wanted to include multiple opinions rather than just my own. Big thank you to those of you who answered honestly. I appreciate it greatly)
What I found to be the most interesting was that it was completely unbalanced between answers involving a physical attribute and those that are unique to a personality. I have compiled a list of the answers I received, as well as some of my own.
- facial hair, or “scruff”
- smile, or nice teeth
- dark hair
- can play an instrument, or can sing
- knows when to take a situation seriously
- aware of your needs
- the ability to quote moves like it’s their job
As I’m sure you’ve heard a thousand-some-time times in your life, and I’m sure you’re going to hear it a thousand more, appearances will fade. Try to find someone who is physically, mentally, and emotionally, stimulating. But more importantly, keep staring at people because it’s fun and can make people uncomfortable… oh, what? That’s not a normal thing to do? My bad.
