This episode is going to be pretty spicy in a variety of ways. That’s because we’re going to think about the role that physical attraction plays in romantic relationships. In particular, were going to zoom in on three related topics:

Firstly, what exactly does it mean to be “shallow,” and why is it even bad to be shallow?

Secondly, even if we ourselves aren’t shallow, society at large is. People are told in various subtle ways that they do or don’t deserve to be with another person because of their physical attractiveness. So what should we think about these kinds of social hierarchies of attractiveness that get thrown at us? 

Lastly, is it ok to think that someone else is more physically attractive than our partner? If we are refusing to be shallow and instead choosing partners based on a more wholistic criteria, then isn’t this a likely scenario?
