Are You Way Too Invested In Your Man’s Looks?

Hey we’re all attracted to good looking people, no one would deny that. It’s basic human instinct and what kicks off mating in the natural world. But there are plenty of other things that make someone attractive other than physical appearance, and that’s something you only realize once you really get to know someone. However, there are some women who insist on having a good looking guy on their arm at all times, no matter his other shortcomings. . Here are some signs that you’re way too invested in his looks for your own good.

  1. You freak out when he gains a few pounds. Those ab muscles aren’t for nothing, and you feel like they should on display at all times. When he’s slacking off at the gym and pigging out on too much pizza when he’s out with the guys, it seriously stresses you out.
  2. The thought of him balding someday makes you sick to your stomach. You met his dad the other day and he was half bald. You haven’t been able to properly eat a meal since.
  3. You’ve debated breaking up with him, but think he’s too cute. Seriously, who knows when you’ll come across another guy in this town who could be a model? You’ll stick it out and enjoy his chiseled cheek bones a while longer.
  4. You’re not attracted to him in certain outfits. The smallest changes that he makes to his appearance can turn you off in such extreme ways that you don’t know if you like him anymore.
  5. You knew you wanted him before you actually spoke to him. The first thing that drew you to him were his good looks, plain and simple. The rest just wasn’t as much of a concern.
  6. Other people don’t take him seriously. They’re onto the fact that you mostly like this guy for his rock hard body, and don’t really think the two of you have much of a future.
  7. You zone out while he’s talking and just stare. What he has to say to you isn’t half as interesting as that delightful sparkle in his hazel eyes.
  8. His looks sometimes embarrass you. When he’s having a bad hair day, it’s like you don’t even want to be seen with him. It seriously embarrasses you to be seen with someone so disheveled.
  9. You love to show him off. Half of the fun of going out to dinner is watching other people check him out, and you introduce him to as many people as you possibly can on a regular basis because of it.
  10. You have to leave the lights on during sex. It’s a whole different experience when you’re together in the dark, you need the live visual if you’re going to finish this thing.
  11. You tend to talk him up to your friends. If they knew that he wasn’t actually good in bed or making you laugh all the time, they would question your relationship (with good reason).
  12. There’s a lot about him that you don’t know. While you generally file away every small detail about guys that you’re dating, you actually don’t know a lot of general things about this guy.
  13. You don’t like to be alone with him. As fun as it is to parade around town with him on your arm, that excitement just doesn’t seem to transfer over to when you’re sitting on the couch together doing nothing.
