1. charming or exquisitely beautiful.

2. having a beauty that appeals to the heart or mind as well as to the eye, as a person or a face.

3. delightful; highly pleasing.

4. of a great moral or spiritual beauty.

pretty. sweet. hot. nice.

these are the words i hear used most often when a guy is referring to a girl they think is attractive. even when in a relationship, most of the words used to speak to each other are somewhat similar to these. whatever happened to enchanting, enthralling, lovely, stunning, gorgeous, or precious? are we so lazy that our vocabulary is limited to these lackluster words?

how is it that while we are one of the only countries in the entire world that speaks only one language, the vast majority of us don't even speak it well? whatever happened to the eloquent way of speaking that led to thousands of books of english poetry? i bet one would be hard pressed to find a decent book written in such simplistic format.

we need to pick up the pace, america.
