Demonstrated by the phrase : "I wish the tall, successful, handsome man was not so superficial"Attracted to what can be seen from accross the room or inferred by the actions of others. Its why a man with an attractive woman with him (as a ruse) will more likely get lucky.
I would say someone who is superficial cares only about outward appearance, giving little or no regard to the personality or inner qualities of someone.
However, I see a lot of conflicting ideas about what constitutes superficial here.
When I asked him if we were going out properly he just said he ‘wasn’t there yet, and wasn’t even sure if he wanted a serious relationship.’ “I don’t want to push it as I have a really nice time with him.
I don’t want to come across as some relationship-obsessed harpy and I’m sure once we’ve been seeing each other for long enough he’ll come round – we’re in a relationship in all but name anyway.” I slightly want to bang my head against the keyboard now, not least because I’ve said the same thing more than once in the past.
” explaining how proper dating has been replaced with casual hook ups and ill-defined relationships. And when I say I’ve learnt this the hard way, I mean it.
Online dating, and our ability to be in constant contact with everyone we know via text, email or social media make us unwilling to commit to one person, and more likely to want to hedge our bets. In an article I wrote earlier this year about modern dating, I used the example of a man I’d been sleeping with for over a year, who got cross when I referred to him as my boyfriend.Superficial is that which is created only to live on the surface and be viewed on the surface.It's the reason for all the morning ritual preening that transpires by both men and women. I think the superficial part comes in when a person is not willing to look beyond what is on the outside (or a degree, a nice car, money) and consider that there is something more to that person than just those things.One is your perfect match (personality, intelligence, hard worker, interests, reliable, etc), but they have a physical trait you find undesirable (fat, mangled teeth, flat butt, missing an arm). If you can't imagine dating someone like #1 because of said flaw, you are superficial.The other is your exact physical ideal, but they are full of character flaws that will constantly cause problems in the relationship. If you are embarrassed by the idea of even being associated with a person that is a #1, you are highly superficial.Because I like giving examples: Lets say you have two men/women.
