Physical appearance/attributes


Physical appearance in general
Weight
Height

We periodically receive comments from people (usually women) who think that other members place too much emphasis on physical appearance and weight. Most acknowledge, however, that physical attraction is necessary for a romantic relationship. There does seem to be a gender difference, in that men tend to apply physical attractiveness as a primary filter, whereas for women, physical attraction is often something that only develops once one gets to know and like a man. Women often suspect men of having overly high standards for attractiveness, but men protest that they are not looking for a "model" or "movie actress" and that they are capable of being attracted to women with a wide range of looks. See also the section on photos for further discussion of physical attraction.
