Has your attraction to people changed?

  1. I know, its a strange question, but have you found that your taste in partners has changed as you mature?

    I'm only seventeen, but yup. Most definately. A couple of years ago, anybody i looked at were angry, destructive and violent, then i went for the pretty, popular hirls, no luck there, now i'm with someone caring and who is good for me.

    Yes, I find my tastes have broadened. I used to prefer a certain look or type. Now Im more open minded. But no matter what, my wife is still smoking in my eyes.
     
  4. I used to be really picky about who I looked at. Now after being married I'll check anybody out. :eek:

    Just kidding, I only look at pretty women to prove to myself that my wife is still the most beautiful woman in the world.

    I've always been prety reserved & shy with my taste in women, but I'm one of the most outgoing people my friends know... it's really wierd how I can't bring myself to actually get the guts up to even talk to a girl, but I can talk to anyone else in the world easily!

    I tend to pass up a lot of chances that I should otherwise take up cos I don't think they're 'perfect'... I dunno... I shouldn't, cos I regret it later on.

    Aesthetically, I've always been into red heads, still am... but I always end up with blondes?! Always liked slim girls... but in terms of attitude... I prefer someone who's mature and sensible than fun and outgoing now... suppose I need someone like that to fit in with my lifestyle ;) If they're fun too, even better!
     
  6. I have become more closed-minded, in that I will not tolerate someone who is selfish for one moment. The years have taught me that.

    Thank you, years. :)

    I still strongly prefer women of Mediterranean descent.

    Always have. ;)

    I would have thought that if your tastes really had matured, then you wouldn't be changing partners!! ;)
     
  8. I always thought it would be cool to date a stripper. People think they're loose and slutty, but that's not true. Every one I've ever known refused my sexual advances, so I think in reality they're quite chaste, although rather outgoing in nature.

    Well, I've been married for 3 years, and been with the same woman for 10, so I guess I can't really answer the question! ;)

    Well, I love my wife more now than I did last week. I loved her more last week than the one before. I guess you could say that I've started to like an older woman than I married. As long as my wife keeps getting older, I'm going to make sure that my tastes go right along with her.

    Definitely for me. The girl I was in love with when I was 18 is not what I want in a wife now. I am actually really happy that I did not marry that girl back then. One of the smartest things I did in my life was wait until I was 25 to get married.

    You Sir, are true inspiration. I shall continue to wait for the right lady until she arrives :)
     
  16. Let's bump this thread.

    Come on, people, we need more responses than this. :)

    Well the original question said "...as you mature" - so I think the lack of responses, indicates a lack of people who consider that they have in any way matured yet!! ;)

    My taste is for my wife, unless she makes enchiladas verdes, then I just forget about her.
