I would just like to say that personality does indeed impact how pretty I think I girl is. And I don't mean just attractiveness (where you're attracted to the other person's personality even if you don't find them physically attractive). Strange perhaps but definitely a fact...as I get to know this girl she is looking better to me

Absolutely, a girl can become prettier the better you know her.
I have been married for 36 years.
My Valentine has never been prettier than now.

Cuinlalaland, you start worrying me because you sound like some junior high girl lately! Do you need OUR approval to like somebody?!

Reminds me of Mel Gibson's movie "man without a face"...He had a disfigured face and when he meets someone and they're starring he says something along the lines of "look at me, get it over with" to get them to stop starring

When I was in fifth grade there was this girl in the class who looked (there is no nice way to put it) as though she chased parked cars for a living. She was the reason for phrases such as "If my cat looked like you I'd shave its arse and make it walk backward."

And she was mean... mean as a snake.

So of course since that's how my life works I was paired up with her during the assignment of a project which would take place over the course of several weeks.

At first I wasn't interested in anything except getting this over with. However, as we worked together more and more I got to know her a bit and discovered that not only was her intellect VERY keen but that as the wall came down she could be amazingly sweet.

I may not be good socially but it's hardly rocket science to realize that SHE knew she was ugly and her meanness was a defense mechanism, a way of staving off the cruelty of other children.

By the time our project ended I had a crush on her which would not quit. More notably, I no longer SAW her as "ugly". Her face had no negative effect on me whatsoever, only recognition AND attraction because it meant "her". I'd gladly fight anyone who dared make a cruel remark about her in my presence.

Of course, I later confessed my feelings to her and was turned down because sorry, she didn't find me attractive. Apparently my looks did nothing for her.

Eh... so it goes.


However, on the flip-side...

I learned over the years that while looks aren't so important, what's inside is. The downside to that is while I married and my wife looked just fine to me, as the marriage has deteriorated and I've learned who she really is her touch has grown abhorrent to me.

On Facebook she recently tagged me in a picture of the two of us together and upon seeing the pic I removed the tag linking my name because I didn't want anyone who knew me from childhood seeing me married to that.

In short, what was fine when we married became ugly as her TRUE personality, bit by odious bit, came through to me.


It works both ways.
