As the saying goes, true beauty comes from within

While physical attraction is indeed important in finding a romantic partner, it can be the sole factor one bases their decision on.

As some unpleasant surprises might be disguised in attractive packages.

No matter how chiseled their jaw-line, how much their eyes glisten, or how luxurious their hair feels as you rub your fingers through it, it might take only one small action from this seemingly perfect specimen to overshadow any and all remnants of beauty.

Making one think they might as well be on a date with a troll from under the bridge.

Redditor Thick-Lime-9113 was curious to hear the things which will instantly make even the the most beautiful people seem unattractive, leading them to ask:

There's nothing wrong with being stopped dead in your tracks after an impossibly gorgeous person walks by you on the street.

But best to reserve judgment on that individual until sharing at least a word or two with them.

As the first thing they say might camouflage their beauty in the blink of an eye.

It's a wonderful feeling when you think you've met "the one."

Someone who is so perfect in absolutely every way that you can't help but think that they must be too good to be true.

Only to make the unpleasant discovery that they are, indeed, too good to be true.

As they neglected to tell you one important piece of information: they're seeing something else.

A discovery that is naturally met with rage, sadness, and confusion.

As well as the occasional unexpected, unusual development down the line.
