The truth is looks do count in this dating game. No matter how many times you would like to appease yourself that your values and personality are much more important than your physical wellness, you have to swallow the fact that the looks are always the first thing that one would be able to notice than any other aspects of you, especially that we are currently living in this technology and media savvy world.
Truly it’s unfair, but people notice us and make judgments as to who we are by the way we look.
Image is king and speaks volumes about who we are. Remember that the basis of any courtship, date or relationship is basic physical attraction. You both must be physically attracted on some level to make things work.
Initial dates are all about looks, about who and what we find attractive and we are foolish if we try and suppress these desires
The good news is, everyone doesn’t have to look like Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise or Julia Roberts to attract other people’s attention. The keyword here is image, and image is highly accentuated by the presentation we do to ourselves. "Nobody’s perfect" might be a cliché but is always true. We might love ourselves immensely but there will always be something that we do hate about our physical self.
Whatever it is, there will always be something that could be bettered. No, you don’t have to lift that nose to look like Nefertiti, there will always something better to do, but if you have the money then good for you.
Look at yourself in the mirror. Try to decipher what part of your face, or your body makes you feel good then try to accentuate it while deemphasizing other flaws. Start to be fashionable and wear good clean clothes. Clothes can accentuate your best features and hide your less attractive ones. Fashion does not have to be expensive and style can be learned through books and magazines.
A good style and wardrobe can increase your physical attractiveness greatly. Fix that hair, clean that body and try to look presentable everywhere. It’s better if you know what you like so that your get up will reflect your personality. A personality perfectly mirrored by one’s looks is magnificent.
If you are not feeling truly good about yourself, take some time to take an inventory of yourself and then set about changing a few things. In searching a perfect partner, don’t expect that he or she will accept you the way you are at first glance. Physical matching is not about physical perfection, it is about compatibility.
