Dater X: Feeling Attracted To Someone Who Isn’t That Attractive

What I'm about to say isn't going to make you love me. It isn't PC, and it certainly wouldn't get high marks from the judges in a beauty pageant question and answer round. It is shallow, and a thing that none of us are supposed to say. But it is also honest: Looks matter to…
