Affection is Better Than Perfection
In today's society where hot bods are pushed to us ad nauseum on social media and on television, it's easy to get caught up on a person's looks. As a guy who stays on the go, I encounter good-looking women quite often. Some of them are single, too. But spend up to 15 minutes or so talking to them and you will quickly find out why that is the case.
Yet it's still so tempting to ask them out. In my mind, I know that she's selfish and has no clue of how to love me, but there are many factors that will compel me to ask her out:
1) She's hot. 'Nuff said.
2) My friends would think that I'm a rock star to bring a nugget like her around.
3) That fantasy in my head that she'll figure it all out and become the "perfect woman."
Well, there's no such thing as the perfect woman (or man) for that matter. However, there is a such thing as finding someone who is "perfect for you." It's all about figuring out who cares for you more than anything else. Beauty fades and with that being said, who wants to be sitting next to a 60 year old hag with an personality problem decades down the road?
Not me. If people start focusing on "affection" instead of "perfection" then they can have someone who shows them daily that they love them rather than someone who is essentially putting on a masquerade.
Although that's what we should all ultimately crave, it's still okay to continue to date hot women in the meantime, right? Even if they are shallow and/or selfish? I'm just asking for a friend. :)
