The thought occurred to me when I was reading the Tao Te Ching. This mostly stems from chapters 2, 24, 45.
Most Helpful Girl
It's depends. Sometimes we built up people in our minds so much that "perfection" unravels when we get to know that person really well. One example was this girl at my high school that a lot of guys went nuts for. She, to them was absolutely beautiful with no faults. Everything she did, wore and said was gold. She and I moved in the same circle of friends so we got to know each other eventually. Over time I got to see her faults. While I do think that she was pretty, I saw that she was also quite petty. Petty in the sense how she treated the guys who had crushes on her and the things she would say during a conversation (such as backhanded insults). She became ugly to me because I expected her to be as cool as some people would built her up to be but she wasn't (well to be fair, let's say not entirely).
