Wrt aesthetics, we had a discussion a while back on my FB debate group about what makes a person attractive. Answers ranged from the obvious cultural ideals of beauty to purely emotional responses... To individual preferences for personality and shared interests. I guess it's all of the above. So you believe in love at first sight? If so, you probably believe these other measures are irrelevant.

Wrt social media... Yeah, totally agree. We all try to make ourselves look put-together online because hell, why not? These people don't know any better and if there are a lot issues in our real lives, it's nice to have this little place in the cyber world where we are our perfect selves. It's nice, but I've found honest conversation is actually better for your psyche.

Don't we have a thread for the hair? We should!! I think there's a thread for the short-lived moustache, does that count? Lol
