Guys: What do you find attractive in girls? Looks? Personality? Intelligence? Interests? Something else?
Also, what has more weight on deciding whether to date her or not?
Girls (if you happen to be here): What are some tips to... look "good"? (I don't really know how to word that question.)

all of the above. As far as looks, the rules (for me at least) are the same for both boys and girls: You don't have to be gorgeous, but must at least look healthy, hygenic and well-groomed (by "groomed," I don't mean anything fancy; I mean look like you take care of yourself) and, for me at least, personality seals the deal. I'm more attracted to girls with certain personalities than certain looks. I also want her to be intelligent and enjoy conversation with me, and I want her to have similar likes and interests so we can bond over those.
As far as looking good, just do what most girls do: style your hair, wear cute clothes, makeup probably is a good idea... oh and be confident! Confidence is super-important in being attractive. If you're insecure about something, play it off with jokes like it doesn't bother you. For example, I don't think I'm physically attractive, so I was joking around with some female friends and somewhere I made the joke, "I'll have you know, ma'am, that I happen to have a GREAT personality!" Implying that someone wouldn't date me for my looks, but I didn't mind (turns out, they corrected me on that assumption, which goes to show that most people don't see themselves as nearly as attractive as most others do).
Also, BE YOURSELF and relax! Most girls don't realize that they probably have at least SOME boys they know trembling in their very presence; If you like a guy, try asking him out; Most guys will give it a shot with you. If you just be yourself, you've got a higher chance of a guy you like liking you back. Think about it; people tend to crush on each other for specific traits, right? Usually for traits similar to their own. If you tend to have crushes on people who are similar to you, then those people are more likely to like you than someone you don't like. So relax! You're a gorgeous young teenager who's going to make some man wonder what he ever did to deserve someone as great as you!1
