I think as you get older, you learn about what's really important. Looks fade over time. Yes, you have to be attracted to someone & that has to do with how that someone looks...that's the first impression. But sometimes you need to talk to someone..get to know them a little..find out who they are. They could not be the prettiest girl or hottest guy, but have an awesome personality, a great sense of humor, etc. THAT kind of thing lasts forever, whereas looks don't. When you're younger though...it's hard to get past the "they don't look good enough for me" thing.
