Agree. And I did not say that she said that nor imply that she did. What she did say was that looks don’t even make the cut.” They would “not even make the top ten” in terms of her criteria for evaluating potential dates. As I explained in my post I think she is lying when she says that, not intentionally I am sure, but lying nonetheless. They would certainly be in her top ten, and may in fact be her actual #1 criteria though of course she would argue they are not. Simply put, it is not possible (biologically) for looks not to be one of the most important, if not the most important factor in mate selection. Fortunately for the ugly among us, myself included, what is “good” and “acceptable” varies widely, though not as widely as one might like to believe. In any event thanks for reading and commenting! It is truly appreciated.
