I met this guy at a party and I wasn't physically attracted to him. But the more we've talked and gotten to know each other; the more comfortable I feel. We've spent a lot of time going out, to the movies or dinner and I find that I am happy when I am around him. I've dated men in the past that were 9's or 10's on an attractive scale; but they never made me feel good about myself. This guy I am with now is maybe 3 or 4, but he makes me feel loved. A lot of people ask me why I would go out on dates with him and I say that he makes me happy. My question is, does there have to be that physical attraction there for a lasting relationship; or is it possible to have love for someone and not have the physical attraction there?
How important is physical attraction?

You feel happy with him, so you clearly don't need physical attraction to feel happy with a guy.
Usually, in most cases, there has to be physical attraction in order for things to work. I once broke up with a girl cause I didn't feel attracted to her, but it doesn't seem to be the case with you.
The only problem I see happening is sex. Sex is very important in a relationship, and if you don't feel attracted to him, you may not want sex, or not as much as him, and that'll cause problems.0
There does need to be physical attraction as sex will inevitable occur. He seems like perfect friend material but not boyfriend material.1
Depends on the person, if it works for you then you really shouldn't worry about what other people think. But I couldnt really date someone who I wasn't physically attracted to, Id just want to be friends with them.0
