I'm going to say a strong yes and say looks matter to this. I was born with a jaw that was underdeveloped and an overbite. I had a huge nose that was deviated and caused inflmattion that had caused very large bags under my eyes. I had surgery last year to correct all these issues. I wore braces for a year prior and then they moved my lower jaw foward so it would fix my overbite and my profile. I got rhinoplasty and they straighted out my nose and got rid of the hump. I got blephroplasty to fix the bags on my eyes.
Life has literally changed for me and it's kind of disgusting that it did. I noticed more girls would talk to me. Dates were easy and I seem to of gotten invited everywhere. People respected me more and actually listened to what I had to say. I was looked up upon. Girls seems to just laugh at everything I say and it's kind of annoying.
Before I had such a strong personality and people still never gave me the time of day. I was a hard worker.. did well in school.. played sports.. disciplined. None of those traits were ever appreciated. I guarntee you I could smoke weed all day live at home and drop out of college and girls would still date me moreso than the old me. II think it's wrong that society is like this but oh fcking well. I really do think facial aesthetics to matter in this world. I'm living proof.

Looks matter a lot. When people say they don't, they're either saying it to be nice, or they've never experienced how people treat others based on looks.
I am very ugly. I've been getting told since I was 12 that I am ugly. I was bullied in school because of how ugly I was. When I first moved to this city, I moved into a college building because it was cheap. I wasn't going to school, but you didn't have to be. The bullying I experienced from these so called adults (college aged people) was a lot worse than I ever got in my life. It was worse than anything I experienced in High School.
I am thin, I dress well, I have good hygiene, but my face is ugly. I have a very masculine looking face, and because of that, people call me ugly all the time. If i wear baggy clothes, I get mistaken for a guy. I am 29 years old, and you would think that people would have stopped calling me ugly by now but they haven't. I went away this weekend for my birthday, and I counted at least ten times that people commented on my looks. Some woman who was older than me, actually BARKED at me. She looked as if she were in her forties, and yet she barked at me as if she were 15. So that tells me that people will never stop no matter how old I get or they get.
I know that looks matter, and it's just not for relationships but just in general. I've been experiencing it my whole life. I've also never had a relationship and I am still a virgin.0

I know the Politically correct thing is to say looks don't matter but I'd even say looks matter more than personality. If you're attractive you have somewhat of a halo that causes people to perceive your personality as better than it actually is. As long as you're not a completely shitty person, you're golden. Id take being above average looking with an average personality over being average looking with an above average personality. Realistically I'm probably average for both :(
Being good looking is a huge advantage. It's not because society is shallow, it's just human nature. There has litteraly never been a point in human history where physical appearance hasn't mattered. Being good looking has always been advantageous and being ugly has always been disadvantageous.
You have a unique experience, you know what it's like to be on both sides of the fence. Before you get mad at girls or think they are shallow, ask yourself this question... would you have wanted to date a girl who was the physical equivalent of the old you?1
