This title may be more provocative than the post itself, but I wanted to at least grab your attention on this cold winter day.
Have you ever noticed that one can find faces in any wood flooring or most wall papers if they let their eyes and mind wander? Maybe, these faces are those folks destined to remain in limbo?
Have you ever noticed these sponsored ads that show up in your browser stating “You won’t believe what ‘so-and-so starlet’ looks like now?” Why is it they don’t show the men? Here is a picture of an old movie hero whose stomach now hangs four inches over his belt, e.g.
Have you ever noticed that a defense mechanism of the former president when accused of sexual assault is to claim the woman is not his type? What if the woman responded, well he certainly is not my type or he would not have had to assault me. On the latest occasion, he said she wasn’t his type, then mistook a picture of said accuser for his ex-wife.
Have you ever noticed a key fact of life that goes unnoticed by men is generally women pick the man, not vice versa? In the documentary “I Am,” a cardiologist noted the human heart’s electrical signal can be felt by another several feet away. So, between her heart beating faster and the other signals a woman chooses to send (flirtatious movements and coy eye contact, e.g.), there are few things more attractive to a man than a woman interested in him.
One thing we have put too much credence in is attraction based on looks. Magazines and social media ads heighten this focus. Of course, physical attraction is important. Yet, for lasting relationships, friendship, humor, and emotional support play a heavy hand, as well. My wife is my best friend. She is also funny and the best of listeners. And, she still makes my heart beat faster.
