When asked what your “type” is, you probably start listing off physical characteristics: surfer type, preppy, muscular, hipster, put together etc. And, typically, your inquisitor will then say, “But that doesn’t tell me anything about what kind of personality you like!” Okay, so points to them for noticing you’re a bit superficial in your answer. However, if they looked beneath the surface, they’d find that you are telling them what sort of personality you like, all by telling them the type of appearance you like. Think about it: you dress, do your hair, stick to a certain diet and wear your makeup a certain way to tell the world who you are. You try every day to send a message to the world whether that’s, “I am confident” or “I feel like crap today” or “I am strong.” Your appearance is more honest and more telling than you may realize. Same goes for men and when you see a certain type of body or a certain style, you’re seeing a personality, or at least an essence of it.
