A great body and no brains is a turn off. If the person has no self respect there are problems you may want to avoid. If they dress sloppy, they may live sloppy that is also a turn off. I have a great imanigation, if they show me the "goods" I have little to look forward to.

    There is ... or should be ... a difference in someone you want to use and someone you want to develop a relationship with.

    All the best. Bob.

  • Sep 5 2012: Personally I find the term "sexy" to have very little to do with appearance but with someones attitude and behavior since our appearance is brought out/changed from our personality/attitude.

    It is very often we see for a example a person that may or may not be "attractive" in the eyes of someone else although once the person gets to know more about the other (personality, attitude, knowledge, talents etc) his/her perception on the other's appearance (physical traits) may be changed and therefore the other suddenly becomes a beautiful person or "sexy" in this case.

    I also may add that I feel "sexy" is associated with a person who has a more edgy personality with an strong independent characteristic that evokes a sexy attitude.

  • Sep 3 2012: As you said, sexy is individual. Thus it is a great word to use for selling anything to anyone.

    Sep 3 2012: I would say i wouldn't know what sexy is anymore.I've found that a curve of an ear was once sexy on this one lovely lady,so for me sexy depends on whatever presents itself upon first introductions.
