You Don’t Need To Be A Perfect 10 To Be A Perfect Girlfriend

Good looks might make it easier for you to find someone to sleep with, but they won’t make it any easier for you to find a long-term boyfriend. If you want someone to commit to you, then you need to show them why you’re worthwhile, and good looks alone won’t cut it. That’s why you shouldn’t be too concerned with your appearance. After all, you don’t need to be a perfect ten to be a perfect girlfriend.

  1. A good man won’t care about your looks. Do you really want to date someone who values your body over your brain? The right guy for you won’t give a damn about what’s beneath your clothes, because he’ll be too focused on what’s coming out of your mouth.
  2. Attitude is sexier than appearance. Eye candy is fun at first, but it can get stale. Meanwhile, if your high confidence gives you a sexy attitude, you’ll always be fun to be around.
  3. Everyone has different tastes. Even though you consider yourself a strong seven, there will be men out there who would easily call you a ten. Those men would die to get a kiss from you while others wouldn’t even give you a second glance. That’s just the way attraction works.
  4. It’s dangerous to rely on your looks. A woman who relies on her looks to get her through life will never develop a sparkling personality, because she won’t think that she needs it. Meanwhile, if you have a sense of humor and a kind heart, it won’t matter what you look like, because you’re the real catch.
  5. Looks fade. It’s senseless to date someone for their looks. After all, twenty years from now, you won’t look the same. If a man wants a long-term relationship, then he’s going to choose a girl he loves spending time with over a girl with good looks.
  6. His standards aren’t actually unrealistic. You might be fooled into thinking that men have impossibly high standards, due to online sex and photoshopped magazine covers. However, most of them understand that you’ll look different without makeup and the right lighting, and they won’t give a damn about it.
  7. No one thinks they’re perfect. Even if your boyfriend thinks you’re a perfect ten, you’re never going to agree with him, because of your insecurities. Of course, your opinion isn’t the right one. You’re more beautiful than you think.
  8. Love is blind. When you meet the right person, they won’t care about your skin color, weight, or anything else about you. They’ll see straight through your skin and into your soul.
  9. Opinions constantly change. Someone sexy will start to look uglier if they treat you poorly, because their personality influences the way you see them. That means you’ll end up looking more attractive if you always treat others with kindness.
  10. He won’t wish he had someone prettier. You don’t need to be beautiful to make a man stay. If he loves you, then he won’t stray. After all, the way that you look has nothing to do with being a perfect girlfriend.
