"Looks don't matter"- You hear this a lot in the dating world, it's a statement that's basically saying that it doesn't matter how bad or good you look that's irrelevent and it's all about what's on the inside - This is true, but did you ever think there is more to this?
Whenever I hear the notion claiming that "Looks don't matter" I always giggle because it's the most false claim when it comes to anything related to dating. The thing that is most funny about this claim is that most of the time it's always said by people who are constantly putting someone like Ronnie Banks, Zayn Malik, Ariana Grande, or some other popular celebrity as their #mcm or #wcw and complimenting their looks and in some cases saying that they want to marry them ... but I thought looks don't matter? You want to know why they are saying this? Because they want to comfort people that have the unfortune of being ugly by giving them something to hold onto which is the opposite of what they truly think.
The truth is, looks do matter to an extent and anyone who is at least honest with themselves will admit it. The fact is that that the look of anything play a big part in your first impression which ultimately decides if you or anyone elsewill dig deeper or not. My favorite example is a house, let's say hypothetically that you saw this disgusting looking house that you simply couldn't compel yourself to enter but unknown to you the inside of the house was remarkably beautiful and now let's say you saw another house and that house was astonishingly beautiful but the inside was hideous which one would you most likely enter regardless of what is known to be inside? The fact is that it would take you more convincing to investigate the ugly house and it would take you little to no convincing to investigate the beautiful house, this also applies to a person's looks when it comes to dating. If a girl or boy is generally good looking then it means more people will be inclined to actually get to know him more regardless if she or he has a good personality or not? Why? Because his first impression actually allows him to show people his personality. There is no logical way for someone to exclusively see your personality first and then your looks, it's always the other way around and unfortunately your looks decides if anyone is going to want to truly see who you are on the inside - This is why your looks matter. Someone that looks like Ariana Grande is generally going to have no problem with allowing people to see her personality then someone who is ugly or below average.
