I Think Everyone Has Some Degree of Shallowness

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 148 People

    There is nothing to be ashamed about. We are all built differently, it's how one chooses to convey those feelings that has more of an impact on the masses.

    Honestly, I Do!

    I am the first to admit, that a good looking guy can almost always get my attention! I do notice beauty on the outside and how! =p But, my shallowness is very small scale (or I like to believe so!) because being pretty isn't enough to KEEP my attention. If it were true, I...
