Do you think only attractive people have affairs? That being physically unattractive (and that is totally subjective, what one person finds unappealing can totally turn another on) is a safeguard to inappropriate physical or emotional intimacy? When I think about the men I’ve been attracted to before I was married (heck…even when married), most of them have not been what most would consider physically attractive. Even my celebrity crush, Liam Neeson.
I read a study once that concluded that most of the affairs men have involve women less attractive, heavier and often older than their wives. All things that go against our stereotype of a man taking off with a hot, gorgeous, young blonde… Usually the woman was kind, loving, supportive and emotionally and physically available when his wife was none of those things.
