The problem with "hot" is people don't always get to see the "real you."
Funny but true: In my "clubbing days," I'd meet a guy and go have breakfast in the wee hours.
About an hour into talking at a diner, the guy would say to me: "YK, you're really an alright chick."
It didn't matter to them who I really was at first blush but when forced to relate to me, only then could they tell I was a real, down-to-earth person. (This happened to me several times.)
Point is: We are who we are and that's okay. There will always be someone, somewhere to appreciate us in depth and breadth--warts'n'all ... The right one will grasp the total you within and feel lucky to be at your side--no matter what. That's the person who is worth the wait.
Just keep your senses keen to appreciate him/her for all they are--warts'n'all.
