    Like most people, I tend to be attracted to some physical form of attractiveness e.g nice eyes, nice smile, etc. But I've realised that I'd get bored with this sort of attraction; for example, I'd find this particular person attractive, but sooner or later, I'd find those attractions lingering away from my mind to the point that I'd wonder why I find them attractive in the first place.

    Has anyone felt this way before? I know that personality is important but so is physical attraction, but I just find that I'd get bored with the latter : /

    I suppose it's normal, if you have too much of one thing you end up getting bored of it no matter how good it was to begin with.

    if i find someone attractive from the get-go, i don't stop finding them attractive. i just feel less wow'ed by them as time goes on.

    OK, but how does one know that one is legitimately attracted to the person even after years and years being together?

    I get bored with their personality as well; getting to the point where I really don't want to be with them anymore.

    Anybody else get like this, or am I alone?
