  1. Appearance is just a one time fascination. Appearance don’t matter when we are actually in love. It becomes a habit soon. We might consider the look of a person initially but we actually fall in love with the personality.

  2. Lust is cardinal in any love / romantic relationship. As I have mentioned in my article, Lust is the fire; Love is the fuel and without one the other doesn’t last for too long. It’s imperative to be physically attracted to the person not just to start with but each time and feel the pull inside your flesh and bones and it takes effort and sensitivity and loads of passion to keep the relationship as fresh as newly baked bread each morning.

  3. I don’t see how appearances will affect a relationship. No one expects their partner to continue looking the same unless all you want is a trophy wife and are willing to pay for all her surgeries! Jokes aside though, best not to be with someone that shallow because there will always be someone better looking and one can’t live afraid of being dumped because of weight or acne etc. At the same time, I do believe that we should sometimes put the extra effort into how we look for our partners. Especially in long term relationships where it is easy to get complacent. It is important to show your partner what they fell for in thee first place

  4. Really depends on what is keeping the relationship together. If it is just pure physical attraction, then appearances are important. Beyond that, when in love everything about your partner is attractive. Especially as one gets older and youth and beauty wither, emotional attachment keep the two together

Yes No
