One of the things noted was that women will often desire the wrong things in a husband, blinding them to the deeper, more important things of the heart. Things like physical attraction can distract woman from seeing that a man may not have the kind of character best suited for her. I've never been that girl. In fact, I mostly thought of this as a "guy requirement". But as I thought about it, I've heard women say that they want a husband whose face they'd like to look at for the rest of their lives. When I look at my "list", there are very few physical attributes listed, and even those are not very specific. I've found over the years that the men I find attractive are attractive to me because of their character and personality. Men who I might not have initially noticed but have the kind of character I am seeking can become very attractive, while men who might've caught my eye with their looks will fade in attractiveness if they lack those qualities. If I happen to be interested in a man who is found to be very attractive, it is because he has proven that he is a man of character.
I trust that I will be attracted to my husband, regardless of how he lines up to the world's standards. It sometimes boggles my mind how men operate so differently. I know God has a purpose in creating men to be visual...but I have to admit that not only has this been a source of discouragement but also frustration. Again, it goes deep to the heart of insecurity that says I am not attractive enough and therefore because I "don't meet the standard" somehow that means it won't happen. Of course, God is working on this very issue with me. I know that simply because I don't know of any men (nor haven't in a long time) who are attracted to me, it DOES NOT MEAN that no one ever will. In fact, it's the very process of how God brings a man and woman together that shows me how absolute He is.
So, where do you rank physical attractiveness in importance? Character? Am I in the minority or majority of women? If you happen to be a guy reading this, feel free to add input!
