Last night, my husband commented on FaceBook..."I think there is someone for everybody."
SMOKIN' HOT!!!! The first time he picked me up on a date, I KNEW I was in trouble! He made me laugh, he made me giddy, he made me swooooon! The physical attraction made me want to see more of him, made me want to get to know him better. I may be shallow, but I'm still going back to the analogies of buying a car, or a piece of clothing....if it isn't pretty, you won't look twice!
Let's just say it; would you have sex with someone that wasn't attractive? Yes, it sounds shallow, but seriously think about it! If you see someone you think is "ugly" physically, does sex or kissing them EVER run through your mind? NOPE, didn't think so! So, initially, physical takes hold! It may not be most important, but it definitely matters.
Now that I've gone off on that tangent, I'm going to jump back onto the path I originally wandered down; what you may think is petty or "correct" aside...don't close off your heart to being loved! The true message of this post is to keep a clear mind, an open heart, and allow love in!
You can have your "standards"; everyone needs them to stay sane. Don't think because you haven't found someone by the time you're a certain age that you are destined to be alone; love takes its time. If you're closing yourself off though, being cynical or jaded, YOU won't see what's right in front of you. It could be a stinky, mud-covered softball player buying a beer-don't overlook, listen with your heart!
