I was reading a story online about a woman who met a guy through a dating app. After a few months of getting to know him, she felt that they were a great match for each other in terms of the conversations they had and the emotions they shared with one another. He seemed really into her and had already started making comments here and there about plans for the future.
But what she wanted to know was, does that matter? I guess it does, because up and down the Internet, scores of women have sought advice about what to do with men they have a connection with, but no physical attraction to. The way it usually goes is that other things about them peak your interest and help to build physical attraction. A guy who always makes you laugh. An intelligent, cultured guy who makes you think.
A guy who is caring and really gives of his time and himself to help others. A guy who is emotionally intelligent, in touch with his feelings and the feelings of those around him.
A guy in tune with your needs who is considerate. A guy with power and intensity. Who he is as a person can turn you on enough to build physical attraction, meaning the sexual attraction can grow over time. But if that is not the case, then you have to do what works for you.
If you know that the physical is major when it comes to building a romantic relationship, then you should probably stick to what you know. The last thing you want to do is make someone who is really into you feel bad because you act repulsed when they lean in for the kiss.
Still, my advice is to follow your true feelings. How important is physical attraction to you?
