The World's Most Attractive Man

The ladies had never found Charles very attractive, and like most men, he pursued those ladies who might be available to him, often without success.

One night, while feeling the frustration of yet another rejection, Charles prayed to be irresistible to women.

Suddenly, a voice replied, "Are you sure that's what you want?" "Oh yes," he answered. "More than anything else I've ever wanted."

And the next day it came to pass. At work, adult women of every age threw themselves at him. Everywhere else he went, it was the same thing.

Charles had so many dates, he could barely keep up, and at first he was happy as could be.

But then women kept calling him, texting him and following him begging for a date. Soon he realized he was being stalked, and he couldn't stop them.

Meanwhile, those women he was dating became jealous of one another, with many of them creating a scene, insisting he was theirs.

And when he found someone he thought might be special, her attraction to him was so strong, she wouldn't leave him alone. Charles felt trapped.

In desperation, he prayed intensely to return to the way things had been before he became irrisistable.

A voice replied, asking, "What did you learn from this experience?"

"I learned," Charles answered, "That attraction is what it is for a very good reason."

"That a selective few are attracted to each of us based upon what they value in us. And we do the same with them."

"When we value each other, we have the foundation for a wonderful, intimate long-term relationship, rather than something based on superficial attraction."

"To find a person truly special to us requires rejection as one by one, mismatches are eliminated while we draw ever closer to the one who is right for us."
