This got me thinking for a while because both are of importance in their own right. I am almost done with my masters and I sort of prefer my future partner to be as educated/intelligent as me but quite honestly, if she wasent but looked extremely good, I would consider her.
Whereas if a girl was extremely intelligent/highly educated but she wasent my type look wise I wouldn't consider her at all.
So in that regard, I think I must admit that looks are more important to me than intelligence.
And I think that goes for most other people.
I have a feeling people only say they look for intelligence in a partner to come across as more classy and sophisticated. Intelligence or lack there of can easily overshadowed by a person's physical appearance.

It depends. If he is attractive, but he is really stupid then I won't be interested. Also, if he is extremely intelligent to the point I don't understand him, I'd feel self-conscious. I'd like a happy medium. I am average in looks and intelligence, so I'd be happy to find someone similar. I get too intimidated when it comes to looks too. I always felt that I wasn't good enough for my ex-boyfriend because of how attractive he is. He ended up dumping me because of my insecurities. I kept telling him he could do better than me. I don't blame him for that either when I think about it.
It's actually why I am still single now. I need to work on my insecurities before I get in another relationship.0

i dont think i can really choose.
In a friend, ofc intelligence, but in a partner I really need both, and dont prioritise one over the other.
when i say i need looks, i mean i just need to be attracted to them; they dont need to be a supermodel or anything0
