Why personality matters

Fun, after all, is the most attractive trait someone can have – more than looks, more than money or status or popularity.

Why personality matters
Kiersten Ulversoy

For as long as I can remember attraction has always been the biggest thing when it comes to finding that someone. Sure, someone can be extremely good looking but if they don't have a personality how long is that relationship really going to last? I get it, attraction is somewhat important and that's all some people focus on but in the end it's the personality that wins someone over. For me personality has always been a big thing when it comes to guys, and looks matter somewhat I'll admit, but more so the personality. If a guys humorous, smart, confident, witty, out going, and nice they have my attention. It's all about the mental connection more so than the physical. Yes, physical is important but you have to be able to really establish that bond, friendship, and interaction with one another. If it's only physical related then you got an unbalanced relationship going on.

If you're just wanting some fun or a one night stand then the attraction is the go to but if you're looking for your potential wife/ husband the personality may be the thing that gets you hooked. Men and women think differently when it comes to this topic, I'll agree.

Ladies, raise of hands for those who have seen at least a season or two of the bacherolette / bachelor. I mean, don't you always have your favorites while watching the season and seeing how everyone interacts and whether or not there's a connection or just physical connection? I mean it may be TV but still; body language and emotions don't lie. I swear, I could pin point half of the men or women on there that it was all about physical and not so much mental. If you don't have that mental connection and understanding or just bond you might as well just be hook up buddies if you ask me.

Everyone maybe different and that's okay. Everyone is allowed to have their own preference on what makes them attracted to someone, but I think we all know that the personality wins in the long run because everything else seems to decrease when looking for your mate. People should like someone for them not just the looks and whatever else comes with them. Give it a shot you may find your one.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
