I'm attracted by the potential for reckless abuse of power.

So choose one. Style or substance? A flash of lightning that heats intensely and blinds or a steady bon fire? Which one?

I've gotta go with style. Commitment is a touchy thing for me, and when someone has a smooth sensual style, I can't help but fall for them. Substance is good, don't get me wrong, but I can't really be into the long term deals. Style baby, style. I guess that's why I love everyone that I do... Dante of Devil May Cry, Johnny Depp, Viewtiful Joe. They all have substance, but they just have so much more style.

Mmmm...Johnny Depp.

My point is: you've got two guys/girls after your attention. One that you're immediately attracted to but doesn't seem to be that worried about your response. The second that maybe doesn't catch the eye so much, but is (in short) a lovely guy/girl who seems genuinely to want you around.

I've worded that badly, but I'd go for substance, every time.

On first impressions it's got to be style. Then again, you generally don't get to know someones substance without noticing the style first.

I think they go hand in hand - it's the style that attracts you to the substance.

Of course if you're attracted to the style and then not to the substance, then the style doesn't seem so attractive because the substance lets it all down.

And so on and so forth... blink.gif

Probably some combination of the two, I know its easy to say, but someone with substance who I'm not physically attracted to wouldn't be anymore than a friend to me, similarly someone who's nice to look at but has no substance is just something nice to look at, not a bad thing in itself, just not for me, sounds like I want a lot? well i already got it biggrin.gif rolleyes.gif


EDIT: why is there someone who thinks the same as me and always manages to post JUST before me without me realising it, WHY GOD WHY?!?! tongue.gif

Normally, style reflects substance and vice versa. However, it seems like these days so many people are made-up...not being themeselves, conforming to the society around them...that it is difficult to find people who have substance.

If I find someone who's style reflects there substance, then, I'm very happy. biggrin.gif

*pulls out hair* Style more of short term, substance more of long term. I went with substance.

I would also be more likely to go for substance if only because of the number of guys I've ended up with who had style, and turned out to be... not nice people tongue.gif
