Let's say this person has a personality that is relationship material but this person is not attractive to you at all. No matter what. Would you still date this person?

I have to be attracted to them. I've had at least one friend where the intellectual and emotional chemistry was off the charts, where we both acknowledged that being with each other was a turn-on, but there was just no physical attraction for either of us. She's cute, but the thought of seeing her naked just did absolutely nothing for me. I couldn't date someone without liking their personality, and I tend to find those people more attractive the longer I know them, but physical attraction is necessary too.2

No. While I'm not a shallow being and personality is very important when it comes to me finding someone attractive/dating them, it doesn't mean it is the only thing of importance. I need to be physically attracted to the person too. This is why I'd rather start off as friends. I have fallen for people who I would usually not have liked if it were just based on physical attraction, but when I got to know them as a person, not "eye candy," I found them to be much more attractive than I would have thought before.0
