    How important are looks?

    I met this guy online shortly after a bad break up about six months ago. Recently we met agreeing to be friends with benefits. He made it very clear he will be whatever I need him to be in my life. Including something more than a fuck buddy. But he’s content with what we have now. He has everything I’m looking for; hes educated, has a job, we share similar interest, the conversation is good, the sex is great, but I’m not exactly attracted to him. He’s very small for a guy only weighing in at 140 apparently. Still strong enough to lift me but I just got out of a relationship with a larger more manly man and I don’t know if I can go back to a smaller guy. Should I look past it?

    I would look past this for sure!! It sounds to me like you guys hit it off very well and he is everything you are looking for in a guy right? While I think that looks do play some part in a relationship as far as attraction is concerned, I really dont think that it is THAT important. I mean who freakin cares if he is not as “manly” as your past guy?! If he is good to you and treats you right and you think he is a good guy then go for it!

    Looks are important but they are not everything. If he makes you happy, what can be more important? I say – do it!

    How would you feel if you were on the receiving end of a shallow rejection. However- should you settle? If you’re not attracted- it’s only going to blow up later on. He deserves your honesty- you owe compassionate let down though. Assuming he is a good guy…

    I personally think its terrible that you have a “friend with benefits” relationship. Do it with someone you love, not just want to have sex and let it be over.
