Looks. It's one of the most interesting and controversial topics related to relationships. You have those individuals who say looks are very important and you have those who say looks aren't important because "it's what is on the inside that matters." So, who is right? If I have to pick, I'm going to side with those who say that looks are important. But before you start calling me a chauvinistic pig who only cares about how hot a woman is, hear me out.
Jennifers Story: Jennifer took a few years after her divorce to work up the nerve to start dating again. When she did, her first dates were complete disasters. And they only got worse from there. Dating over 40 was nothing like dating at 20. She was so keenly aware of her inexperience with men that she started every date almost too nervous to speak.
When we meet someone new, we immediately form a tentative picture of his or her personality. We generate this first impression in a matter of seconds, because we need it to guide our initial give and take. Our amazing ability to rapidly size people up works so well that we continue to rely on it as we get to know the person better.

You know the time has come. He just isn't the one for you and you know you're going to break his heart. He's been swooning over you for months and as much as you like hanging out with him, in the end, he simply doesn't rock your boat.

It's gotten to the point when you start to avoid his phone calls and are easily annoyed with his anxious requests.
It might be one of the hardest and most important questions of a lifetime. When is it time to call it quits on a relationship? I get asked that question regularly and most of the time, by the time that question is on the table, a break up is imminent.

Isn't he attracted to me?"
