Don’t Change. I Love Everything about You, Except THAT…

Love. I love it!  I think most people love love too.  That’s why everyone seeks relationships that make them happy because they want to be loved.  We’ve all heard that we can only make ourselves happy.  Yeah, yeah, yeah; but having someone who brightens our day can make things feel a whole lot better.

Every year there are publications that come out with a list of the sexiest or most beautiful people on the planet.  Many of us look at those lists and think, “You’ve got to be kidding me.  They are not even cute.”  I’ve wondered a time or two about who are the people who came up with these lists and was there anyone else who had to give approval because the chosen ones baffled me.
