Umm... I'm afraid I must not have expressed this well enough. See, I value deeper qualities too (ethics, abilities, commitments, etc,)... on a non-emotional level. Yes, I recognize, consciously, the hierarchy of what traits are most important for a person to have, but it never has any effect on my emotional state at all. That was what I meant when I said that my feelings weren't malleable in that sense.
