I was scared to go much further with it
I've created an entirely unscientific, two-part poll to try to suss out how you all think when it comes to what makes another person attractive and worthy of your attentions. I've disabled viewing of results and have screened comments, so please feel free to be as honest as you can. Whatever secrets you share are safe.

I want your stories. Give them to me.
