I'm 23, and dating an average-looking guy. We have only gone on a few dates, but he treats me with respect, values my opinion, expresses his attraction to me, and always conducts himself with chivalry. We also have a lot in common, and he's easy to talk to.
My girl friends think I should be dating someone more attractive. They always give me a hard time, because they say we look "mis-matched." I know they might be acting shallow, but it is my experience that younger people in general seem to place a LOT more importance on physical appearance than people with more life experience.
I guess I'm asking for opinions. Is there anyone out there who used to be a little shallow when it comes to judging others based on physical appearance, and they met someone that changed their mind? And/or is there anyone out there who felt that way when they were younger but now that they're older, their priorities of what they want in a partner have changed?
I would just like some insight before tell my friends that they're immature and they'll grow out of it, haha ;)
