Today’s OPP is from Candy and she needs your help! Here’s what she said: 


Yi Slacker & Steve,

I've been hanging out with a guy that I like but I don't know if I can totally commit to him. He has a great sense of humor, his life is in order, he's caring--he just falls a little short in the looks department. I don't want to come off as completely shallow because we've been hanging out for a couple of months and I am attracted to a lot of his qualities--I'm just not 100% physically attracted to him. My question is if it would be a good idea to have a relationship with him because I'm still attracted to all the other things he has to offer. If I do get into a relationship with him will I eventually start to find him more physically attractive? What should I do? -Candy


Is physical attraction a must have in a relationship and can it grow eventually while dating?
