Hmmmmmm... good question. I wondered how long it was gonna take someone to make a counterpart to the male version of this question.
I think for all of us, what attracted us to our mate, or to potential mates, is physical in nature. And that physical attention, while it's importance lessens during the course of a relationship, it shouldn't fade away completely.
Once we have that initial physical attraction to someone, it opens us up to learning more about them, about their intelligence, wit, humor, maturity, how they treat others, etc.
Of course, now we have internet meetings, which take away that aspect of a person's physical attributes. I'm not sure what I think about that.
The day I met my hubby, I was physically attracted to him. He was so tall, I just wanted to climb him like a freakin ladder. And then I talked to him for about half an hour. And the other things came out. His dry sense of humor, how shy he really was, how smart he is, what beautiful babies he would make, etc.
Mmmmm, and his butt........
