      In that order.

      I respect your question very much, but I just can't give you a proper answer right now.

      But it's out there!

      I did try my best to point in the right direction with my first two sentences.

      A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy dare live.--Bertrand Russell

        are more important to me than the physical package they're wrapped up in. But not everyone feels that way and it's not necessarily a conscious choice -- just the reaction they have to a less than perfect body, especially the ones who are fitness freaks/perfectionists. That's the first thing they see.

        Shallow, sure. But I value honesty too; I'd prefer they tell the truth from the beginning. And heaven knows, I wouldn't want to be involved with a perfectionist anyhow!
