Reaction to photo shows the importance of appearance

It’s important the parade continues – but safely

Have your say

My heart went out to 53-year-old widow Louise Leech, who made the headlines this week for posing in her swimsuit to attract a partner.

I just felt so sorry for her. Not because she had embarrassed herself or anything like that – she looked pretty hot in her red swimsuit and has been flooded with invitations for dates. No, I thought it was a real shame she had to resort to such measures.

Louise had signed up to three different dating websites, but got very few offers – until the swimsuit shots.

She looks fantastic and has an incredible body with a pair of pins most twenty somethings would die for.

But all it shows is that, in our fickle world, appearance matters more than finding out if your personalities match.
