Do you choose to associate (or not associate) with people based on appearances? Why or why not? I have heard that a lot of people do this so I wonted to know how common this is. Does it matter what a person you hang out with's image is? Do you think your looks can determine the people that associate with you or speak to you?

I keep writing an answer to this question and then erasing my answer.. because I don't know if I'm gonna make any sense.. you question is nice by the way.. so ill just say what comes to mind..
I don't choose to associate with people strictly based on their appearance.. it is a factor but a very small influence on my decision to be friends with them or not.. a major influence is their character and their maturity compared to mine.. the main reason for this is.. I can explain in one way.. its like they say .. people can tell a lot about you based on who you associate yourself with.. One example is .. sense of humor.. cursing and calling each other "retard" and stuff like that is only funny for so long.. and it gets tiring very soon.. It happened to me once.. when one of my less mature friends pulled that kind of stupid joke infront of my other (more mature) friend.. and it was quite embarrassing.. ill spare the details..
The weird thing is.. I think my looks determine if people choose to associate with me.. and I don't take any chances with that.. because its something I can control.. I can control how I look like how good of a shape I'm in and stuff like that.. so I try my best.
