    ah ha! great news everyone!

    it takes at least 60 hours of starvation for your metabolic rate to low down in order to to conserve fat. so that "starvation mode" crap is, as I've suspected, a modern myth. it's been pressed in our faces to sell trendy diets that promise to keep your body in fat burning mode...

    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.

    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 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!

    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...

    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...
