Most Helpful Girl
I'm not going to be as nice as the others and I'm just going to give it to straight. Looks are extremely important. If you are ugly/unattractive chances that girls will look at you with interest are slim to none. Unless you set your standards very low and go for your same type of girls. Ugly girls, nerdy girls, fat girls. Sorry, it's the truth.
Unless you have female friends who are somewhat attractive and already like you for who you are and not what you look like. IN that case you can try pursuing one of them but you might ruin the friendship, it's always a risk.
Girls and guys are pretty much the same in this aspect. We don't go "Wow that guy sure is ugly but damn his personality is HOT, I want him now in my bed" It's not the first thing we see, it's not out there, it's something you get to discover after you meet them and get to know them. But what initially draws a person to another is their physical appearance.
If you aren't THAT ugly. Play up what you do have. Get a new hairstyle, some nice new trendy clothes, go to the gym and work out, build some muscle, pluck you eyebrows (not in a girlish way just shape them up), shave off the beard/mustache, get a facial (nice skin is always good), wax your chest hair, put on some nice cologne. Don't hold back and think it's totally hopeless. Try and do something so you're not as "aesthetically challenged".1
