Dear LIB readers: I'm not physically attracted to my man

From a female LIB reader
I have been in a relationship with my man for about 18 months. When I first met him, I never thought anything would come off it. I typically brushed him aside and never gave him too much thought as he is very physically different than what I am usually attracted to in a man. With time, I slowly realized that his character and personality is everything I have ever hoped, dreamed and fantasized about. No kidding. I decided to give us a chance. It has been 18 months now and he has started talking about long term plans i.e getting married. The problem is, whenever I meet or come across anyone with the physical attributes I am attracted to, I start to second guess the whole relationship as I sometimes lust after people who possess these physical attributes. I really can’t help it. I do not want to cheat on this man if we eventually get married but I fear this may happen. I really love this man but this is too confusing. Has anyone ever experienced this dilemma? How did you handle it? How much does physical appearance play in the long run (i.e after you are married)? Reasonable responses please.

I have a friend having this same issue,her's is more precarious coz she's married.
my dear you're lucky u not married yet,coz the issue you raised is quite a weighty one that can't be overlooked in marriage. I doubt how you'll be able to stay happily married when you know your man touching you irritates you.
And its very dicey and dangerous to advice you to stay with him hoping that oneday things would change.

Married people who are attracted to each other still cheat,how much more when there is no physical attraction. My dear,don't lie to yourself,let d dude go so that he can find someone who loves him and finds him attractive. He deserves it,u deserve to be with someone you are attracted to as well.

yes you are right, personality is what really matters. you have to really decide what u want, do u want a guy with the best physique in the world but will treat u like crap or do u want a guy who will treat u like gold but is not a 100% perfect. also this is something u can bring up to him, tell him maybe to workout more or do push up, tell him u find guys who have certain physiques attractive, but tell him in a nice way so he will be willing to do something about it. also, remember u urself ur not perfect u know. i think as women we have been sold a lie that there are perfect men, there arent perfect men but there are men that are worth working for and with to make them the kinda men we want them to be. hope this helps :)

Sad story if this physical appearances are things like his weight, dressing etc then you can convince him to work out, change his diet, and give him dressing tips basically change him into what you want. Girl best believe that marriage isn't all about physical appearances. Will you rather marry a slim, tall and handsome man with swag who beats you and cheats on you constantly, you answer?

Toluwalope said...

If physical attraction is a priority to you then go for it but remember it doesn't last at all... I've never read it any where that ''i want to divorce my wife or husband cos he or she's not handsome or beautiful''
If the content is perfect why crying cos of the container?
You met him that way and he's still that way....if you truly love him as you've claimed then encourage him to go to the Gym and design a very good diet plan for him, you will be glad to see his physical look evolve to a better shape...
God bless!!!

Everyone's physical attributes is subject to change during marriage. You too will change with the birthing process whether you like it or not. Some people have married hunks/babes who end up in accidents and loose a limb or arm. Does that then mean they should exit the relationship? Look waaay beyond the physical dear, its bound to fade.

chemmywalata walata said...

Since u are lusting after physical appearance of another men or guys u see around, my advice to u is to take him to gym and let him "eat iron, pump iron wella" his physique must change and then u will find him attractive again

I have experienced same issue b4. All I did was to pray and I got the conviction dt he's jst d ryt man for me. He possess all the attribute I want in my man but his physical look is totally different from my desire. But one thing I noticed then is that those one that has the physical look I want were not making me happy in my relationship with them. But believe me, I took my eyes off physical attributes cos I really desire a good marriage and made up my mind to marry this man. I look back today and I say thank you to JESUS bcos I am happily married with him and I have been able to groom him at least to 85% of what I want my man to look like which I am satisfied with. I'm into marriage and I can say it to anyone that cares to know that it's not all about physical appearance o, it's about marrying your own husband or wife.

Anonymous said...

If you truly love him, you will not see anything wrong in him or even wanting to compare him with another man. Forget about the physical looks, that's for the short run, if you intend to marry which is a marathon, you should let love rule.

Anonymous said...

Let me advise you. Im married to a sexy girl from a v wealthy home. Im sick of her. We dont share same value systems and we constantly quarrel. Sex isnt everything. After a while, she/he will stop being attractive to you and you wont be able to stand their touch or talking to them. You had better marry your friend and the person you are compatible with. A life of average sex isnt too much a price to pay for a happy life.Even better, you are a woman so your tolerance thresh-hold is higher. be smart.

Anonymous said...

hi there,i kind of identity with your present situation as i have been in similar situation. First of all solid relationships aren't built on sex/physical attraction alone.

On the other hand, lust is something most people cant control even if they are married to "Denzel Washington". However, you can over come that by channeling your energy to the happiness he brings you. Those hunks you admire all the time might not treat you as good as he does. If this doesn't work, then you might need to give the relationship some more time before you end up unhappy and divorced!!!

swty you can never have it all..d truth abh marriage is over time married couples lose that physical attraction for each other..frendship,trust nd all dat is wat keeps it going....but its ur life,ur choice..choose wisely tho.

Lemme perch under ur comment too. Lol
Sista I hv had a similar issue, n guess Wat?! I left! Simple
U knw wat u cn n cnt handle, u knw ur weaknesses. If u cn handle a man wiv shitty xter bt wiv d physical looks u like, oya go get him! I knw ppl will say dat "ohhh it's nt all abt physical looks n shii" My dear no one knws whr ur shoe is pinching, only u. So if u r alwedy 2nd-guessing n even thinking of cheating....u better let it go.
I must warn u though; refusing to settle for less comes wiv consequences. Possible loneliness is numba 1. U will b LONELY. So u hv to b a woman who is not afraid of being on her own.
Not to mention d 18months u invested. Look, better now dan sorry after marriage. U will b fine

I'm in the same situation, but I married my guy. I've come to realise you need more than just physical attraction to have a lasting relationship. He is a fantastic person and is everything to me, I wouldn't change him for anyone and we make a solid team. We've been married for almost ten years and I would never cheat on him. I respect him and our marriage too much to even contemplate doing that.

Awww...I can only imagine what you're facing. As for me, I am physically, emotionally, lustfully and spiritually attracted to my man.

Anonymous said...

Truth be told, if after 18months of a relationship you are second guessing. I feel you should look inward and ask your self if character is indeed better than appearance. For all you know he might also be nursing same thoughts towards you but decided not to count your shortcomings as flaws. My dear talk to your man if you truly love him.

Adeniyi Joy said...

Well, for me. I've never experienced it but sometimes you get to see so many people that look good and handsome better than your man, you might just get attracted but its not good enough to wanna have a relationship with them. Physique is just for a time, it shouldn't dictate what you want and I'd say that if you think you'll cheat on him with a cute guy then you don't know what you want yet. What if you get involved with a handsome man and he was involved in an accident and not only lost his handsomeness but also one of his eyes. Then how will u live with that? My dear, think before you Act moreso let God lead you.
My thoughts, My opinions.

You will likely cheat on him from the way you sound. You should know that no one is perfect and you can't have it all. You either have the looks without the character or the character without the looks. You choose.

It happens. But the answer lies with you. Would you rather a physically attractive man without those other attributes you love, or a less physically attractive man with all the attributes you love? Cos quite frankly, finding a 100% is really difficult.

hilary obiorah said...

First of all anonymous 2:13, you are a moron, second of all I hate it when people say really beauty is on the inside, but the truth is you love a person physically before you get to know and love them on another level. The problem here is your have led this man on for 18 months, I don't wanna say you fell for his money or that you just didn't want to be lonely, but I know a lot of women who has traits I want in a partner but as long as they don't have those physical attraction it just won't work!!! Talk to this man and get out of the relationship as soon as you can before you break his heart beyond repair. But in 18 months, you guys ought to have had sex, there ought to have being some sort of physical attraction there? How did you pull through it in those 18 months?

This is pretty normal. Wen u r a kid and fantasizing abt ur talk dark and handsome man, u assume there is a maker somewhere manufacturing men to ur specification. Then u grow up (at whatever age ur mind learns to adjust to reality) & realise something count more than ticking physical appearance check lists. Find something u find attractive in ur man & focus on that! U like tall and slim men who are drop dead gorgeous. Ur man is only talk and slim, or even only slim, u focus on that & fashi all the things wey e no get. Otherwise dear, u r setting urself for misery. Wetin u get - good character - counts far more in a marriage that looks, trust me.

IamTwaizee said...

Well, i think you need to take a break and see for yourself how sometimes you re better off with the man with good personalities than physique. Dissociate yourself from anything that gives you crazy tots about the physique you want in a man. for me, i try to convince myself with negative things ablut things not too good for me yet i like. it might not be so easy, but it's a small price to pay for a lifetime of happiness. #jezsayin

Getting into a long term relationship with someone is something that should be thought through. If you are not physically attracted to him and you see the need that you might cheat on him, do him a favour and don't hurt him. But then again, change is good. Think about it. Why is he different? It might be a sign he is MR RIGHT, considering all your past relationships did not work out since you were after physical atrraction lol

Traveller said...

I felt complied to advice you on this very delicate issue.
You must first understand that in a long term relationship,physical attractions although important but will always wares off,so such should not be bases for your decision making in terms of going into a long term relationship.
No matter how beautiful(nice looking)a guy or girl might be,there is always the tendencies of losing that physical attractiveness on the long run on both side.So anybody basing their judgement on attraction must always cheat if that all it takes!

I know there's a guy out there dt meets my expectations. I'd rather wait til I meet them but I cant gv any guy below my aesthetic expectations a chance to even get close, cos dt wont mak me happy. Not dt I want so much anyway, just not ugly or short. So dear, if u re havin cold feet, better drop him. U wil stil meet d type dt u want.

How can u love somebody you are not attracted to physically?U said u love him but not physically attracted to him.Sounds contradictory

Anonymous said...

that person should follow his or her mind and taste

Eesah 26E90A24 said...

The fact is, no matter how shallow it sounds, physical attraction is very important in a relationship. Dt doesn't mean u shldnt date some1 unless they r like a model, all it means is dt u have 2 be little attracted 2 d person in order 4 there 2 be a sexual chemistry. That being said, the personality of a person makes them better looking. If a guy/ lady don't look exactly how u want but their personality is amazing, u r going 2 find him/her attractive no matter what. So I believe even though u are not attracted 2 this guy, I bet when u give it time, especially coz u said the love is there which is the foundation, u might actually become more attracted

This one has nothing to do with spirit of God. No need to be over spiritual about matters like this (@imaseun katerine). If you are not attracted to him, you are not attracted to him. You have no business being there. And again, she has said that she starts second guessing herself when she sees someone with the attributes that she likes in a man. Girl, if you stay with this guy, you are going to cheat on him, the moment you have a chance to.

Don't stay in his sokoto, when what you are looking for is in Sokoto. (Remixed it) LOL

It is difficult to comment without knowing what physical attraction you're refering.

There are some physical attributes that can be amended like weight. But in marriage the most important thing is being happy not lust. So appreciate your good man.

Anonymous said...

LMAO..Why do I beleive this is actually a post from you about me.well done,stop wasting my precious time and money.go and look for who you are attracted to

Alloy Chikezie said...

I would like to say here that its very important that before you get married as a single man or woman, its very important that you study about what you are going to involve yourself with, I mean you learn and study about marriage, you get materials that talks about preparing you for marriage, just like u study medicine in school before u become a doctor, so also u study about marriage before u get married, don't be ignorant of what u are venturing into or where u are going, get materials that talks about marriage, and how to look out for the right Man, materials like, "singles with a difference by faith oyedepo, Love 101, question young people ask volume 1 & 2, etc, there lots of materials in the market that deals with issues like this, and most importantly the bible, u can't go into marriage without studying the marriage manual which is the bible

On your case young lady, in as much physical attributes is one of the things to consider or look out for in a partner, I must say its a minor, its not a major attribute, its not important like the inner attributes, if you consider physical attribute, you will get the wrong person in marriage, he is not too handsome, she is not too beautiful, he is not muscular, her breast is too small, her ass is too small, he is dark in complexion, or he is fair in complexion etc all this things are attributes that kids look out for, and not matured mind, people that are matured look beyond this, remember that even tough the body of a car is good, but the engine is better

One thing you need to remember is that physically beauty fades with time, but not inner beauty, so what happens when it fades, will u divorce him then? Or what if the person gets an accident and becomes deformed, (may God never all allow such to happen) will you divorce the person? Is that what u want?

Marriage is for matured minds, people who are mature will not cheat on their partner cos of his physical attributes when his inner attribute is something to be applauded and cherished,

And remember also that there Aint no perfect human being, if you see a guy that is physical ok with, what makes you think that he will be right man for you? So the things is that since nobody is perfect, you just can't see a man that has everything you want in man, that's absolutely impossible, I am positive about that, and from what you said, the only problem is that u are not ok with the physical attribute alone, which means this man he has about 80% to 90% of wat u want in a man, young lady you Are very lucky

Appreciate what you have, a bird at hand is worth more than two in the bush, good guys are hard to come by, same with good girls or wife, the bible likened a good husband/man or wife/woman to gold stop being childish and grow up before it becomes late

The good news is that this same thing that's happening to you, happens to everybody, at a time in our life we think that way, we find ourselves in this junction, everybody especially when we were much younger thinks this way, when we hold physical attributes more than inner attributes, but as we grow up, we begin to understand that there is more to choosing a partner than what our eyes see, pls don't forget to study the bible and also get materials talking about marriage and how to find the right partner

May God help you and bless you

Lemme guess, he is short and Ugly!
Really? I don't understand what you mean by "u'r not attracted to him physically" in most cases, ppl listen 2 u cos of ur physical appearance. If u'r nt attracted to him physically how did u manage to date him for 18mnths? Personally, I have 2 b attracted 2 u physically b4 anything else. If he has a poor dress sense u can teach him how to dress if u love him. If he's nt tall,i don't think there is a solution for dat, u'v jes got to love him dat way. If he's ugly, good dress sense can help. Lastly, if u love him physical appearance won't count. U'r lucky ur problem is with his physical appearance, u can always work on it.

As much as attraction doesn't do it all, its also very imperative dat u are physically attracted 2 ur hubby 2be. U must be proud of ur man datz my slogan!
Dat aside, Since he is all u want in a man apart 4rm his appearance, my dear mayb with time u just might grow 2 like it..
Personally I cant get married 2 som1 I'm not attracted 2 cuz he wld suffer emotionally.
Happiness is key, good looks mite not make u happy, but a good man will.

4 instance If u say u want a fair tall handsome man for a hubby then don't forget there are a lot of them out there who fits datd description and are also criminals, woman beater, smokers, and terrorists. So pls don't let physical appearance be a criteria for things that has to do with marriage .give ur life to Christ and he shall direct u via wisdom and understanding.

My dear, my advice is that you should look at the content not the container. The problem with people these days is that they get carried away with the little things instead of looking at the bigger picture. Physical appearances fade. i'd advice you go for a man of character and virtue.

Dear friend,
Let me remind you that you cant eat your cake and have, and that there is no perfect human being anywhere.

i was in this same dilema sometimes ago and at the end of the day i had to let go of the man (because i wouldnt want to have distractions in my marriage), but i cost me another 5years to get a loving, God fearing man that also match my criteria.

so, you are the only one that can make this decision yourself.

Anonymous said...

if you love this guy, once you marry him he becomes handsome. Ask yourself if you are a cheat. If you have been cheating on your boyfriend in the past then you will definitely cheat on this guy or whoever you marry but if you have the fear of God in you, you will not cheat on a man who has all the qualities you were looking for. And besides, by the time you marry him you will be so occupied with family hussle than to even have time to look at another man. I have felt this way before though, wanted to marry this guy even though he was the shortest and ugliest of all the guys I've ever dated, all of a sudden I began to feel concerned about his height and bald head.Its a very bad place to be.

I know a couple who met in January, got engaged in July and got married in November. The girl is a very pretty girl and my friend and the guy is handsome too but I can tell you that she wznt attracted to him sometimes I tell myself she still isn't .. The guy is short and she confessed it herself that the day she met him for the first time, she kinda lost interest.. Their wedding was widely publicized on blogs and all as well as a well scripted story on the brides part.. Those close to her.. All know she would never have married him if he didn't have a stable job in an oil firm in Lagos. The guy spoiled her a lot Bfr they got married.. There wznt ivn enough time for them to know each other and today " they are happily married" lol! But I know my friend.. And I'm scared to tell her the truth.. The truth ivn her husband doesn't know...which is the real reason why she married him.. It wasn't love... It was simply security! Good home, good job.. Well my future is secure.. Everyday I pray for them in my heart but at the same time I fear that they might begin to experience issues sooner than later .. Marriage is not child's play.. It's not something you rush into.. You don't wanto get into it and one day you ask yourself what u were thinking when you got into it! So my dear pls rethink... It's not all about looks yes, but it's really a vital part... You wanto spend the rest of your with someone your completely connected to.. Physically , psychologically, spiritually , intellectually, emotionally etc Goodluck .. God be with you.

Marrying a man because he's handsome or attractive is even a number one wrong reason to get married. You will forever become a slave to him because he's already knew that you are a weak person who is only after the physical appearance but not the character or content.
You need to be very careful out there coz the most caring men are not usually handsome. And it is those cares you need if you have gotten any plan for your life and future! Right now your heart is filled with lustful desires, so you can't think clearly. you are attracted to any hot dude out there, even when they are likely going to ruin your life, and may likely leave you heartbroken at the end.
So if such a lustful desires is what has filled your mind, remember, that handsome men will never finish on this planet, and before you wake up to reality, you would have already become a modern day prostitute - but your own prostitute would be worst because you won't even wait to collect money for your services or you will even be the one still paying men, just because you think they are physically attractive in your lustful heart.

Sister's Keeper said...

I will add my 2 cents because I know what you are talking about. I too was engaged to a wonderful who was not my ideal man and had doubts like you. He was not tall, dark and handsome like I wanted but I knew he was a good man. I went ahead and got married to him and that has been the best decision I ever made!

Don't be deceived my friend, there is more to marriage than physical attraction. I bet you if you get married to the most handsome man who treats you like rubbish, his handsomeness will be useless to you. The wife-killer, Arowolo, who got sentenced to death recently, is tall, dark and handsome, but see what he did to his wife.

When it comes to a life-long commitment as important as marriage, please look for tangible reasons instead of feelings of pride or envious looks from your friends.

Remember marriage is not just about you, but about your families, and the innocent children you will have. Please go for a man who truly loves and respects you instead of a handsome monster. Your family and children do not deserve the pain he might cause you, if you are happy to endure.
May God help you dear.

Now going by ur predicament wen u say physical atributes u need to b specific so that one can really know the best advise bt i promise u that physical atribute ain't really a problem depending on which u actually dealing with. As for being beautiful or handsome well that goes more than the physical appearance.There are cases of couples who start luking alike over the years as a result of that inner beauty & luv they both shared. so u find out dat what matters most is how u both see ur self inwardly cos thats gona be the end of any form of justification to assertain if u are gud to go or not.

Honey, as much as we like to think looks don't play a significant role in relationships, they do. I don't solely go for looks and not everything physically has to be perfect but you want to be able to "want" to kiss your man and even make love to him after he's your husband, not wait for him to roll off you. Trust me it never gets any better - each time you see him you'll just be like ah or maybe even get angry - at the rate you are going where you have already thought of cheating trust me it's already in your mind!!! You will be pushed to one day by the way you already even forced it at first you didn't want him - while things arent bad just move away. Sorry for the guy though I really hate to judge people over looks but it's human nature; whoever won't admit to these things lies!

My dear, I'm married now and I recall I wasn't attracted to my hubby one bit! In fact at our intro, he kissed my cheek and I cringed! Yes, it was that bad! But he was whom God chose for me and so right now he is the sexiest, hottest, finest and most loving man I know. So I would say, take the matter to God and like some other LIBer said, in marriage it's more about the content than the container

Anonymous said...

What about the ones you are not physically attracted initially and pray oh it will work out because their "character " they presented to you at the time was good , within a year into it , introduce a good paying job and walah ! behavior changes and you have this person you neither can stand with a rotten personality and ZERO physically attraction. You cant look at him and say " oh I want to have sex with my hubby today or I want him to touch me" you tolerate when he comes around for sex and FAKE the heck out of it so he can leave you alone. Oh you think maybe we you work on it , read books so things will improve . Nah! he has no interest in that cos he believes he is a stud I guess LOL! he doesn't need improvement , nothing needs to be fixed. You are your happiest when he is not around at least you don't have to bicker about irrelevant stuff like he loves to do.

Since you have doubts take your time dn't rush into this even if he's everything you fantasies about personality wise physical attraction is also very important in marriage. If you are not attracted to him physically and already imagining worst case scenarios you will be setting your couple up for unnecessary trouble and misery down the line. 2 years is still pretty early slow down see where this relationship goes,take a break if you have too. You might meet a guy who has both requisites. You might come back to this one and see he's the one for you after all(if still available that is). Bottom line is take your time I cn't stress this enough.When you finally meet the one your mind will be crystal clear about it.
