I ask this because I see lots of very attractive girls with guys that are average looking at best. I know importance varies girl-to-girl, but in general how important are looks to a girl when it comes to dating?
Most Helpful Girl
It isn't that physical attraction doesn't matter, its that girls have very broad tastes in what they deem as physically attractive. Most guys agree on which girls are hot, but many girls find themselves wondering why their friend is attracted to someone but does't have the hots for the guy they're interested in. I'm glad we're like that. It reduces competition. That average guy might look like Mr. Attractive himself to the beautiful girl. And then too, if he has something else she values like status, humor, athleticism, or success -- it overrides her perception of his objective handsomeness.1
