Many women are of the belief – the near-unshakable belief – that men lock in on the looks of a woman and base everything else off of physical attractiveness. In many ways, it’s understandable that women would think this about men. After all, that is clearly the stereotype that so many of us have grown up with all of our lives. Women are of the belief that the eyes of guys focus on their ass as they walk by or their breasts/cleavage in face-to-face conversation. To some extent, perhaps this is true of guys. To some extent, human can be as shallow as a puddle on the ground after a light drizzle in late April. Of course, some guys are not as skilled at others at hiding their desires for women with certain physical characteristics considered to be attractive. Here is a comment I found on the Internet that grabbed my attention: “Not all men go just for looks, but from what I’ve observed and experienced, many make looks, a high priority. Observe a man while watching TV or a movie. Does he talk about what an interesting, intelligent or nice person a female appears to be? Doubtful! More times than not the focus is on the ‘body’ and often just the ‘parts’.” There is probably some truth to the words of this person, but no guy wants to spend time (long-term time) with a woman who is crazy, angry, hostile, slutty or any other negative attribute you can think of to add to the list. Also, don’t underestimate youth in these stereotypes. As we get older, we appreciate the more important attributes that make for strong relationships. What we like when we’re teenagers may not necessarily appeal to us in our 30s and 40s when we’re ready to settle down.
