Okay.... I was surfing the net and looking at people's web pages when I came across the following:

What I look for in the opposite sex: personality.

Upon reading that I thought, yea, right!! Believe me hearing women say that what they look for in the opposite sex is personality and then not back it up makes me want to puke. I am not saying that it is a false statement, I am sure that most women really do look for personality in a partner, but I am saying that I don't buy it. I am living proof that women do not go for just personality. I am not saying that I am perfect, but I will say that I try to be thoughtful to whoever I am with at the time. I do not try to offend anyone, and I am generally a nice guy. But we all know the saying: Nice guys finish last" and I believe that is a true statement. We do finish last. We don't want to, but we do. I have spent many hours wishes that a girl would at least notice me, let alone show interest in me so I might ask her out, but it is never the case. so is personality really what women want?? I doubt it. I believe that while personality plays a huge role in the decision of relationships, I think there is more than just personality. Suppose I were a big, fat, ugly guy, similar to Fat Bastard on Austin powers, do you think a woman would actually come to me and say, "hey you nice guy you, would you like to go out?" Or even take the time to show the remote signs of interest?? Please. While it would appear to be the right thing to do, a woman, unless she is attracted to fat men who eat a lot and have a scottish accent would not go out with me. But on the flip side, I am a 6 foot buffed guy, who can prove that I can protect my gurl, the charming Pierce Bronson smile, and a personality that is so-so, then I believe I would have a little black book in my possession. But I don't and guess what, personality is not the thing women look for in the opposite sex!! It may be one of the qualities in consideration upon the first date, but prior to that, it is all physical. If he looks decent, and I am alone, I guess I'll go out with him. I mean, there are still many people, male and female, who still go out with someone because they are good looking, even if they have feces for brains and personality. the thought of, "I can change him/her" remains adamant in their minds.

Hmmm... this looks like a good topic for an editorial for the Ka Leo!! Time for a revision and edit!! Take care and more later!!

I have dated a guy based on just personality in high school ... and if you remember in high school, its all about reputation. OK ... the fact that he went to St. Louis was a factor, but the was tall (6'3") and really fluffy (as an ex would describe chubby people). I think only vain people tend to go for looks, but it does have a slight impact on the relationship. I do have to admit that I have gone out with guys who were hotties, but bottoml ine is, their personality wasn't quite up to par. Oh, wait, I have dated guys with personality most recently, as well. I just think they're really fun cause no matter what you do, it could be just driving around this island, and I still would have the time of my life with him.

Hmmm ... what do I look for in a guy? A guy who has a mind of his own and not a mama's boy; who is open and honest; one who is caring and trustworthy, yet who is strong in their beliefs; someone who has personality that would click with mines; someone who has an intellectual mind, yet not a snob about it; someone who loves the outdoors; someone who knows how to have fun, but isn't a party animal/club whore, etc.; someone with a pure heart.
