A lot of my friends and family criticize me for being "shallow", but I really don't think I am shallow. I think I have standards just like anyone...I'm just very vocal about mine and I don't think I need to be ashamed for having standards. I guess because I have a somewhat "high" standard, I don't typically see people that get my heart racing. It made me wonder though...how often do other people see someone they consider really attractive?
So how often do you see someone that's so attractive you feel nervous around them - heart racing, blushing, etc.?

i'm totally the same way. I remember in college I had an "8.5 and up" policy that my friends thought was nuts, hahaha. they always said "your best available option is a 10", but that's nonsense. On my scale, a hard 10 can't exist, that would break the scale. if there's a 10, why not a 10.1? So 9.9 is the best you can do. And that's on the "New York City scale". You know the saying about people who are big fish in small ponds that have an over-inflated rating by the locals, and maybe in their own minds? Something like, "She's a Kansas City 10, but a New York 6." Straight NYC scale for me, regardless of the environment. If I'm in Buffalo, I'm probably just going back to the hotel empty-handed, haha.
it's kind like a sport to me, really. I'm responsible with girls' feelings and all, I'm not a d*** about it, but I consider myself fortunate to be one of the guys who gets to pull lookers, so why not pull all the lookers I can before I'm old and gross-looking, haha. dropping my standards only cheapens the experience. When I'm 90 years old in a wheelchair, drooling with a dazed look in my eye, but with a faint smile? That smile is me reminiscing on all the beautiful women, that sh*t sustains me now, and it'll sustain me then, haha.
i think I started that long rant to preface what constitutes "REALLY attractive" and just got all passionate on it, hahaha...sorry. anyway, I see cute girls that meet my standards almost daily, but it's probably only once every week or two that I see a bonafide showstopper.1
