I published a theory earlier about how convenience was the most important thing in a relationship, and I still believe that. However, I would like to say that it's not terrible to base it on looks or money more than personality. I had a conversation with Connie, and came up with this idea.
Why is it so wrong to base a potential relationship on looks? Everyone tries their best to "look" good, make-up, nice clothes, acne medicine, braces to fix teeth, etc. I mean appearance counts.
But looks can change . . . Blah Blah Blah. Do you honestly think that personalities don't change? I think personalities change every few years, how fast can looks really change? 10 years? 20 years? Also, I think people's personalities go through a much more dramatic change than looks ever do. Besides, we judge everything on looks, a house, a car, food presentation, even underwear. No one is going to see it, yet who would wear ugly underwear? My point is that if you are going to date or marry someone, damm straight that looks count and are a factor.
As for money, same thing, I think how much money or how successful someone is could play a big part in your relationship decision making process. It shows how successful they are, a personality trait.
Sure, basing your decision on only their personality is all fine and dandy, but seriously, basing it on looks or money shouldn't be considered as bad as it is. Besides, I'll leave you with this parting thought. Since choosing a mate is one of the most personal and self serving decisions you'll ever make, why shouldn't you take into account every superficial desire you have? You're not impressing the ACLU or trying to be politically correct with a mate, it's your choice, base it on whatever factors you seem fit.
