    Well I'm 28 years old, so I'd be considered an oldie in here. Except by some other oldies in here, you all know who you are...hehe..

    Oh well, the party is calling me.. Have fun guys and gals! 8)

    I agree. Unfortunately, while a lot of people here are saying looks don't matter all that much, I wonder how they operate in real life. I've seen a lot of guys eat their words when they were trying to sound all deep on that subject. Generally though, physical attraction is going to play a part in the beginning of a relationship. We all judge in ways that maybe we don't want to, but we're not perfect.

    In a lasting relationship though, looks really start to become insignificant. If my wife didn't have a great personality, wasn't intelligent and fun to be with, our marriage would have dissolved years ago from sheer boredom. I don't really hang out with anyone else in the "real world" because I'd rather hang out with my wife in an environment where we are free to talk about things without worrying about saying something we might not want someone else to hear. I get a variety of interaction from the Internet, but when it comes to personal interaction, I'd rather spend nearly all of it with just my wife.

    Gwydion, in that picture I am 21 years old. It was taken when my wife and I went to Six Flags Fiesta Texas (San Antonio), right before we got married. So, it was about 6 years ago.

    Wow, another guy older than me! I think sR (from The Order forums) is 29, and I don't know anyone else around here who is older (or I don't know their age).

    I agree, I've seen people eat their words with regards to this subject too. Physical attraction plays a role in the relationship, but with me, it operates on a seperate level than appearence. I will meet someone, and if their personality is good, I see them as attractive. I can meet some "hot" guys (by society's standards), and not even look twice at them if they have an obnoxious personality. Not everyone works this way, I understand, but if you're not dating someone I don't see why physical appearence should really matter. My friends are my friends, regardless of what they look like.

    And Odin, 28 is *nothing*. I have friends a year older than you. :P

    Physical attraction generally plays as an incentive to get one person to meet another. Most of the time, the sentence preceding, "I want to meet her." (when comeing from a males mouth) is, "Man, she's hot!" (or an equivalent of that).

    However, once you get past the looks it is easy to truly see who they are. A lot of times though, guys will get caught up with the looks and keep trying, hoping to find a diamond in the rough, even when there is no chance of it.

    I had friends in high school who were like that. However, when I was in high school, I wasn't interested in girls (or guys). Most of my friends were girls but I never took those relationships any farther than that (even when I had the chance). I had only a few girl friends, and since sex wasn't a goal of mine, appearance had very little to do with it.

    In this world, physical appearance will always matter, but fortunately some of us are able to set it as a low priority. All other things equal, if one had to choose between two mates, the better looking will win out. I understand that no two people will be the same, so that situation will never present itself that simply, but our minds have a way of misleading us from what we believe are our true intentions.

    Heck, you can't spend your life with someone you don't love (spend your life with someone = should be the case in any serious relationship). Superficial love just doesn't seem to do it, in most cases.

    I don't see anything wrong with pure physical attraction though, such as people getting togeather for only one night to share physical pleasure. Even though that's not a lifestyle I would ever fancy, being happily engaged.

    I think anyone who's been in a serious relationship knows that you can't found such a relationship on something as weak as physical attraction though. And I'm not just saying that because I'm ugly ;).

    Everyone; you're all banz0red for posting too much.

    Odin; you drink chick-drinks. Sissy.

    Tone; I can't see that pic because my server still has beef with web1000, but somehow, I know exactly what pic it is. Heh. Man, I should stop hanging ou with you this much.

    Also, get a newer picture. In which you're not fat.

    Physical attraction thing; well, the only men that say "I'm not interested in looks" are lying, insane or happily married like Tone and the Brady Bunch (those people freaked me out (the Bradies, not Tone and wife)).

    Still, my personal hope (as not to lose faith in humanity) is still that while all men go for the first-impression-on-looks thing, most do have to common sense (or whatever stamp I have to give it) to know what girl is suiteable by what usually turns out to be a combination of her looks and her personality.

    Rediculous, this kind of talk, this talk belongs in a pub, with some pints of Guinness in between the talking people.

    Meh.

    You know what I find important? Smell. And with smell I mean feromones. They're in the air, man. I hate it when a girl kills them with some kind of perfume, though I can survive them, when a girl lacks all trace of feromones...dunno...Meh. This, by the way, makes sites like this one fairly disturbing.

    True, true. Exept for the fact that Guinness has the density of a meatloaf. (It's not beer; it's liquid food). I'd go for some Stella Artois, or something along those lines. But we've been over this before in the.. uhm.. what's-yer-favourite-beer thread.

    Yeah

    Guinness is a draught, though. Not a beer.

    It's because you love me.

    Also, I don't know what is up with that pic, but I'm not fat, I'm not even considered overweight. It must be a bad angle. I'll have my wife take a pic tomorrow after church.

    I always figured that French chicks were considered hot because society's views on attractiveness of women. I figure with those tiny portions of their seven-course meals that they'd have to be *impossibly* skinny by default. :)

    No it is the genes that does it. The reason that there is nice looking chicks in the us is norwegian imigrants. If there should, against all posibillity apear someone who are nice looking and do not have Scandinavian relatives then he/she is a mutated freak of nature who should be put out of his/her missery. :mrgreen:

    If you do that you will only force uss to start going viking again. Now the british had their fair taste of that some thousand years ago, but we ran out of beer so we went home.(Forget that bullshit about stanton bridge, or whatever, just bullshit made by people whos wifes had been stolen) ANYWAY back on track the british tried it, did not like it, and was saved by a lack of beer and mead in the viking army.

    Hmm, so it would work if we gave up beer then? No, that wouldn't work, because without beer, our institutions of higher learning would break down. Without beer, no colleges, and the American standard of life would lower.

    On the other hand, we wouldn't actually need beer if our chicks were *already* hot, hehe. :)

    True, so very true

    I hear you, I hear you Old School. I am considering the idea of becoming a heavy drinker (I have never smoked or drank liquor (except for champagne (yech!) and sangria (wine with fruits in it)) in my life (don't ask, I am such a sissy on those topics)) so that going to uni isn't such a torture (who the HELL peed on your genes girls?!).
