So True

"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 your 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."

- Ridley Jones, a character in Lisa Unger's novel, Beautiful Lies

  2. I think it's also that physical perfections begin to appear. Little things that you never would have noticed or loved without loving the person, and spending the time studying them.
