    I am completely, totally shallow.

    I need to be physically attracted to a guy before I can become emotionally attracted. It's just the way I am, and I honestly don't feel bad about it. I feel like physical attraction makes emotional attraction more intensified because when you find a guy who has a rockin 8 pack...

    I Don't Make Great Conversation

    My only interests are foreign movies and spectator sports (and in the latter case, only what concerns my favorite teams, the Pittsburgh Pirates and Steelers). Anything else, I don't have much to say and I quickly lose interest.

    All the boys I liked,

    except one, I liked because of how they looked. I hated or didn't care about their personality at all. The only one that was an exception, I liked him because he liked me. I liked the fact that someone noticed me and adored me. I'm not going to beat myself too much about this...

    I Am Shallow

    Don't judge, we all have flaws. When it comes to my friends I always connect with ones that are uglier than me most of the time. Every friend I have ever had that never lasts is usually because I get jealous because they are prettier than me. My true friends aren't as pretty. I...

    One of my worst flaws,

    I am completely and utterly shallow. I have fallen for many a guy who I found to have great company with, sharing laughter and common interests but he just didn't have the looks and I couldn't strain myself to kiss/date them. It's good to know what I find attractive but I can...

    I am trying to become less shallow,

    but I probably will not so I will just have to bask in it. My vanity is also extremely high and is something I must change!

    I Have No Reason To Be Shallow, Yet I Am

    I'm not perfect. I'm lazy and stubborn and my body could use some work. Yet I find myself being picky with anyone that shows interest in me. Too short, too skinny, too fat, bad grammar, weird hair...I am SO PICKY. It seems like anyone who has feelings for me isn't good enough. I...

    Am I Shallow?

    All my girlfriends were good looking. Pretty face, nice bodies. I'm not handsome, I admit. I've got holes on my face from the zits I'd always squeezed when I was a teen. I've got flat nose and dark skin, much like a neanderthal. I'm attracted to women who is physically opposite...
