Nope, I need physical attraction as well as emotional attraction. I figure attraction works with a two part process.
As far as the physical side is concerned... There is a general level that a girl needs to hit for me to find her attractive or in the dateable range. (Can be labeled perhaps as "standards") Otherwise, I remain unnattracted romantically. This is where the friendzone comes in. Basically, if a girl is emotionally attractive but physically unnattractive, they become a great friend but nothing more.
However, once the certain level is reached, the main thing becomes emotional attraction. Once one reaches the certain level, whether they barely reach it or surpass it, they're in the clear for this part.
So no, I wouldn't date someone I wasn't attracted to at all, but they'd be friendzoned. I simply can't really feel a romantic connection to someone I'm not physically attracted to. I'd pursue more so a friendship with them. :) I don't think I have too high and impossible standards, but I still have some level of standards nonetheless.
It's important to determine if physical attraction is important to you AND to the other person. It's not fair to assume they would be okay knowing you aren't physically attracted to them, but would date them anyway. I'd honestly be offended and wouldn't want someone to date me if they didn't find me physically attractive. But that's my preference.
This is a good friend in the making your describing not a person you should be dating. Without the physical attraction the will always be something missing. This will only eventually cause one of you great pain.
Does someone being just average looking count as attractive? Cause technically I can't get a boner from a girl who is just average looking unless I get to know her and like her personality or she has an awesome body. Sometimes my dick also gets confused so its hard to say no pun intended :).
looks are not my top priority. personality is most important. i find most women my age generally attractive anyway, so really it's a harder journey to find a girl who is smart, unique, can have interesting discussions and a bizarre sense of humor.
as long as a girl isn't hideous or 500 lbs, i'd date her if I liked her personality.
No; I might be good friends but if there is absolutely no physical attraction it couldn't go further than that. And yes, in spite of what some fools claim here it is possible to have close friends of the opposite gender without it getting weird.
I don't have particularly high standards but if she doesn't attract me at all then no, I would not. I am used to the feeling of dating a girl you are intensely attracted to, and I just wouldn't be able to consign myself to a relationship with a girl who couldn't make me feel that
I just woke up from a nightmare in which I was getting married to a very rich man who wasn't my type physically and I was depressed because of it and was hiding so I won't have sex with him. I can't have sex with a man I'm not Physically, mentally , intellectually attracted to!
I don't think I could and here's why. I'm not a picky person to begin with. I like guys that aren't the finest out of the bunch but still have characteristics I like is enough for me.
So for me not to find a guthat's not attractive at all is pretty hard and in that case I don't think I'd be okay with it. There's things that's way more important than looks but it does take the slightest attraction.
I made a few attempts at this when I was younger, and I couldn't force myself to stay in those relationships for very long. It's like trying to choke down a whole bowlful of a food you can't stand. Miserable. This makes me feel rather petty, but it is what it is.
Someone who doesn't even grow on you? No. But I have dated someone who I didn't find attractive AT ALL. He was very unattractive to me, but after becoming friends with him and getting to know him he became extremely hot to me.
(0.0) ((seeing all the other opinions made me really -.- sad)) ...(what u said above is what happened to me) ... so I'm Muslim as everyone knows muslim people have arranged marrige...(there's was this family da asked for my hand in marrige for their son..(my family already knew them from before.. my dad liked them..(btw they are not rich.. middle class maybe... so my dad came to my room and told me da he likes this family and da their son is well educated..(I was shy from my dad so I didn't said anything to him and my dad thought da (that was a yes from me.. so he told them yes.. the next day they showed me his pictures and well he was good looking just not my type I was not attracted to him at all.. I started crying and told my parents I don't want this but they told me its to late to back out now cuz the engagement already happened and da we are Pathan onces we say yes we never back out..(so then I started hoping da maybe even If I'm not attracted to him since he has a heart of gold I can fall in love with him but after seeing what everyone said to ur question (I lost my hope -.- I don't think it's possible I don't think I can ever be happy with him...:/ (was da a lie when people said outside beauty dosent matter as long as the inner one is real lol
Yes, because looks aren't everything. Let me provide these scenarios: 1) A really attractive and rich guy, but has very little respect for others. He cheats on occasion and uses violence to get what he wants. 2) An unattractive man, with decent money, but a heart that is to die for. He says "good morning," "good night," and "I love you" every single day. However, he's older (the age shows) and has two children from a previous marriage.
Nahhhhhh, ain't nobody got time for that. I can't seal the deal with zero physical attraction. I don't see the point of being in a relationship if I don't wanna eat him up because of how cute he is or rip his clothes off.
Im on mobile so my finger slipped and I voted yes but I mean no. Id be heartbroken if I found out that my SO wasn't physically attracted to me so in the spirit of fairness I wouldn't date someone I wasn't physically attracted to. I feel that to not like a persons exterior is to not love them in their entirety, people are art and you should be able to fully appreciate the art that is your partner.
Been there, done that. It was really frustrating, especially with sex involved. I was completely unattractive to him, so I was constantly fantasizing about other men.
It wasn't that he wasn't attractive. He's the kind of guy a lot of women are attracted to (broad shoulders, tall, blue eyes, blond hair, freckles, full lips), but he was the opposite of what I'm attracted to.
Having already experienced it once, I can honestly say I won't do it again.
I kind of have :/ wish I didn't but I was trying to stop being picky. He was OK looking and not completely repulsive oreembarrassing to be out with. It didn't go anywhere since he decided that we had no chemistry. I wish I didn't waste our time
Well yes voted B... M a kind of person who appreciates inner beauty... Indian people have u not seen "I" movie... this movie inspires me a lot as physical beauty may vanish but inner beauty remains forever
Yes I would because I've actually have had a lot of male friends who weren't that appealing in the eyes to me but I've actually fell in love with their personality. I know that many people wouldn't get this but I do and looks isn't everything.
