Dating not attracted to
I would not encourage a man to pursue a godly woman whom he’s not attracted to physically, but I won’t let the conversation end there, either.
I’ll give him a few other questions to ask himself.
The inside of a house — space, appliances, interior design — can cover a multitude of sins outside.
But no amount of paint and creativity outside can fix serious issues inside. I might say, “No.” That is, if all you know or like about her is what you see.
The world around us will preach that physical beauty is everything, but we know and desire better.
Of all the people in the world, we should be the most free from enslavement to physical appearances and sexual titillation.
That doesn’t mean that if you’re a Christian, you should find every Christian man or woman attractive.
But its role will necessarily evolve the more you learn about someone.
That being said, I also believe that physical attraction is far deeper and more dynamic, even spiritual, than we tend to think. Real, meaningful, durable attraction is far more than physical.
A man or woman’s physical appearance only plays one role in what makes them attractive or appealing.
After you’ve learned more about them — by asking their friends, or by hearing them talk, or by watching the way they live — you’ll never see them again as just the person you saw at first.
The more we learn about them, the more their appearance is filled, for better or for worse, with new and deeper meaning — with their personality, their convictions, their sense of humor, their faith.

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised” (Proverbs ). Because physical beauty and charm are naturally appealing. You can look at a picture in an ad or on an app and decide whether someone’s physical appearance is appealing to you, but that’s like buying a house based on a picture from the front yard.
