You can stop looking and still go out more and put yourself into new situations. None of the advice tells you to sit at home. They is a lot of living to do out there, but you will not find it in your living room. If you stop looking and get out more, you will meet more people. If you are not "looking" you will be more appealing. Eventually you will meet someone(s) with whom you are compatible.

Looks matter a lot. I don't know why this is a revelation. If that is true, it's important to focus on one's looks.

LOL, so true.

How to explain all the men whose wives are not necessarily beautiful?

Also, according to studies, people who put the most emphasis on looks and/or money when deciding whom to marry, have the highest divorce rates.

I can think of two men I know right off the top of my head, who had big love affairs with a woman only because they were bowled over by her looks. Both men ended up alone, and both men look back and admit they didn't care for the personality of the gorgeous woman they just had to be with.

And I'm saying this as someone who was always considered pretty and never without a boyfriend. If you want to be happy, marry someone who feels like your best friend. Not saying you don't need to be attracted, but don't put the cart before the horse.
