I was wondering if any of you might have any experiences with being especially attracted to a certain type of guy (speaking solely in terms of looks). For me, there is a very specific type of guy that I find myself a lot more attracted to than any of the other ones. My first boyfriend had this look (and I'm not sure now whether he influenced my later taste or solely helped me discover it). After him, I've had three more boyfriends and the next two were both completely different both in terms of looks and personalities. My last and most recent one however was again of the same type as my first one, and I found that the feelings I developed for him seemed to be a lot deeper than the ones I've had for the previous ones. Granted, I also got along really well with this last guy in terms of personality (better than with most anyone I've ever met in my life), so I can't really say that this was due solely to his looks. I am, however, trying to be a bit vigilant about my attractions and how they are informed.
In general, I think that all of us have preferences for certain types of guys, and that it's usually just fine as long as we keep an open mind. However, I'm just a little bit concerned that I will end up very focused on my type and disregard all other guys. I still find men of many different looks attractive, but if I see someone who fits this preferences of mine, I'm instantly much more attracted to him than I would be to other guys. I know that in the end, it's quite unlikely that I will end up with someone who looks exactly that way, and I'm a bit afraid that I will keep showing this "bias". I'd like to think that I haven't so far dismissed anyone because they had a different look, but i'm afraid it might happen in the future if I keep going this way. I figure that there's lots of general advice that can apply here: don't fret it too much, put yourself out there, recognize that there's a lot to guys besides the way they look, etc. But maybe there's also someone out there who has initially had a similar attraction like me and overcome it in some way?
