    No physical attraction
    Anon_175206 posted:
    Is it possible to connect with someone, be intellectually and socially compatible but not physically attracted to them? Does the attraction grow over time or is it best to walk away and allow them the opportunity to meet someone else?

    Yes, it's entirely possible to be very compatible with someone and not be physically attracted to them. The attraction may grow over time but it may not. I think it might be best to walk away and allow the other person to find someone who is physically attracted to them.

    Depends what you mean by physically attractive? As in you see them more as a friend or brother? If thats the case, then maybe it is about walking away. You do need to find them attractive also to be in a physical relationship with them.

    Have been with what you could call really 'hot' guys before, and yet not really felt that into it, so sometimes compatibility etc can override attractiveness, but you do also need an element of attraction if you are going to be in a relationship with them.
