Would you date someone who had a good heart and treated you well, but you aren't physically attracted to them? Like, nothing about them physically appealed to you in any way. Yes or no? And why?

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.3

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.2
