I just read this quote on my tumblr dashboard and felt a strong urge to post it here. In my experience, this is so true it almost hurts. I love a cute face just like the next girl, but I love a good laugh and I really love someone who calls me on my bullshit. A funny, bullshit caller is my thing.
“When you start to really know someone, all his physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in his energy, recognize the scent of his skin. You see only the essence of the person,not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.”
