Now, I have no problem against pretty/ beautiful women being highly eligible. It's just, why does everything else -intelligence, personality, etc. -have to come second, or even prove negligible in some cases? Especially since physical beauty is a genetic lottery ticket that expires over time.
Oh, I know the theory about clear skin and large waist-to-hip ratios being markers for fertility. It's just, physical appearance today can be altered by makeup and surgery. That correlation no longer truly applies. Also, you'd think the 'secondary' qualities would be more important in selecting a long-term partner. So why? Are guys, lesbians & bisexual women really controlled by their instincts that much?
(On that account, are there any sapiosexuals on this site? Or is sapiosexuality real at all?)
Most Helpful Guy
I'm a very, very sexual guy. For me to be happy in a relationship, the sexual element has to be exciting and fulfilling. While looks aren't the be all and end all, I do need to be attracted to my partner, and I definitely want someone who makes me want to tear her clothes off every time I see her. That might be trivial and immature, but that's just how I am.
On the contrary though, I also want my girl to be my best friend, so characteristics such as intelligence, charisma, humour and personal drive are highly valued.2
