Beauty in the eye of the beholder

It is tempting to depict your heroine as exquisitely beautiful -shining hair, immaculate complexion and a figure any woman would die for.

Equally, you might initially portray your hero as a picture of masculinity. Tall and handsome, with a head of thick, luxuriant hair and of muscular, athletic build.

They both look and sound wonderful, have warm, caring dispositions and to all intents and purposes, are perfect. Too perfect. We ordinary mortals know we haven't a chance with people like this. They would never fall for little old us, so in order to make your romantic characters appear more believable and, more importantly, attainable, it is necessary to give them a flaw.
