In answer to my own question, I would vote it's an important factor. It is however, a prerequisite that *I* find her physically attractive. The rest of the world's opinion about her can go to hell.

  • Another one that's a prerequisite. Haha!

    I don't need (or even WANT, to be honest--it's not really my taste) for her too look like a mainstream/societal 9/10 or 10/10. I just need to be really, really attracted to her and to think that she's beautiful.

    Anyone who reads my stuff on here knows that I'm a big believer in subjective attraction. So yeah, she needs to be really fucking hot... to me.

  • It's extremely important that he is somewhat attractive in any capacity, way or form but it isn't important at all how attractive or unattractive he is above my minimum attractive threshold.

    • Got it. Thanks, and don't forget to vote if you haven't.

  • Its important that you care about what you look like and you take a bit of time (not saying spend 3 hours in front of the mirror) to make sure you look alright
    Looks is what gets your attention but personality is what keeps you (that's what I think)

    as long as i am attracted to him (he may not be good looking to others), and he has a good characters thats good enough

    • Thanks for sounding off. Don't forget to vote if you haven't.

  • Attraction gets your initial attention and personality keeps it. I've met guys who are decent looking but their personality is amazing so they become much more attractive to me. But I could never be with someone I didn't have attraction to. Its important. I have to want to kiss you lol

  • Appearance is about 90% of what I look for. A girl with an 8 appearance and 1 personality would be a 7.3 overall, and so would a girl with a 7 appearance and 10 personality.

    • You should express that as a formula. ;-D

      Thanks for sounding off. Don't forget to vote if you haven't.

    • p=Personality
      a=Appearance

      .9(a) + .1(p) = Total Rating

    • Awesome sauce. Now solve for p! ;-D

  • Personality always trumps looks but let's be real. Everyone has their limits.

    • thanks. Don't forget to vote if you haven't already.

    • Show All
    • More than Americans but less than Aussies and Brits. Depends on where you grew up and who runs the schools

    • Interesting.

  • It's important, just as having a good personality is important. For example, i'm not attracted to black women at all. I just can't see myself with one under any circumstance. I'm a white guy so i find myself more attracted to white women, though i dont mind Asian and latina women because they have physical features which appeal to me.
