Orzzz: A picture does skew things. If a looker, tons of interest. Blah, no interest. Funny thing is no one wants average even if they are below average.It's stories like this why I logon every day.
I got hooked on my guy long before I knew what he looked like. His brain, experiences, knowledge and hobbies all clicked. The only picture he had sent was he and his identical twin in a coaster wagon when about 4 or so.
After a couple months, liking him more and more, I said I want a photo so I know what you look like. Experience of men our age, I figured wouldn't be that exciting. I knew he was slim which was a plus. He finally sent a photo. When I brought it up... I had my boarders wife and my tenants wife up here at the time. I yelled, come look at what I have been writing too!! Talk about hitting the jackpot. I would have been happy with whatever he looked like, but ended up with a movie star. All these years and we have aged and I still think he is super handsome.
Mom always said love and potatos are two of a kind. Both have eyes and both are blind. If you get to know someone first, it doesn't matter what the looks are. And we all will lose them with age anyway.
I didn't like to see photos of my late husband. I realize why. In my mind he looked the way he did when I married him. Photos made me see him as he was. He had trouble when he became an invalid. I got it through to him, love is for keeps. I didn't marry a body, I married a heart and a soul. And those were still there. The body is just a carrier. For better or worse. His looks were imperfect, but to me he was handsome til the day he died.
