It's false. I think it's the same as with men. Both are attracted to someone good looking. But once that person opens their mouth, there needs to be something worthwhile come out. Looks attract initially. Personality and a bunch of other things keep that attraction. If there is no connection as a person, it's not going to happen.
Just how important it is depends on the individual. But in virtually all cases with men or women either one, there needs to be more - much much more.
Of course there are exceptions. If you go around looking for it, that's what you are going to see. Good looking, outgoing personalities stand out. But they are not in any way representative.
Envy doesn't get you anywhere. Never has, never will. Envy is something that needs to be amputated, before it consumes you.
There are 7 billion people in the world. Statistically, there is no way to give a true or false answer to what women prefer. Instead of generalizing it based on the gender, try to approach as a: who the person is and what they prefer.
But if you insist on generalizations, GENERALLY ALL PEOPLE want someone they are attracted to physically and emotionally, as that is how we are socialized and what comes naturally to us. How attractive a person expects you to be (if at all) is based on the individual.
For a relationship I want it all. Personality, intelligence and looks. Looks matter. It ain't news. How much they matter depends on the individual's preferences though, and not gender. For me, personality matters more. I'm not going to date a hot douchebag. But neither am I going to date an ugly good guy. If I lack attraction for him on a physical level, it wouldn't be fair to date him. I wouldn't be able to have sex with him. So I want a nice middle ground.
Instead of generalizing, look at people as individuals. Not as gray masses that all think alike and share the exact same preferences and views.
Women care about looks, but they care about intelligence a lot more. BECAUSE women care about both, they'll aim to get BOTH. Looks AND brains. So yes, hotter guys who may have average IQ will be more wanted then ugly geniuses.
But the fact that we care about intelligence shows when we pick among "average rated guys" who either have all looks and little intelligence, or a lot of intelligence and no looks. Then we always go for the ugly smart guy, instead of the hot idiot.
Just like men want both too. They'll rather date an intelligent, well raised lady, than some mouth breathing bimbo. But since guys care more about looks, if they had to pick between an intelligent whale, or a dumb pretty bimbo, they'd always go for the bimbo. We girls would go for the whale. That's all there is to it.
If you have both looks and brains in any "average" capacity, you should be able to get a nice girl worth having. The only reason you're so focused on looks and think that's all women want is because... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qanDVZHliw
Obviously looks matter, but if you're an asshole most women will leave. If you're ugly you better have an amazing personality or be hilarious or something to make up for it. Basically it's the same for guys and girls. We all want a nice looki partner who is fun to be with
We've all noticed this being true for guys... ------------------------------------------------------------------ Women - not really... at all. Sure if there's a guy who is everything + ugly and a guy who is everything + pretty > the girl will go for the second one... Don't pretend you wouldn't.
Maybe the type of girls you're attracted to are the type to go after looks? Or why else would you only notice those? I would think so.
We are all different.. But in general, irrelevant to gender, we need to all accept that appearance plays a big part in choosing your partners, because there has to be some type of physical attraction for a relationship to work.. It can't just be one thing.
And while some do only date for appearances, the truth is the vast majority doesn't 'solely' date for appearances,,, you just happen to be attracted to shallow girls perhaps.
Honestly, it's about the same proportion of men and women who don't care about personality or intelligence. For the most part, women and men care about personality and intelligence more than looks (in the long term, as attraction is important but does not create a healthy lasting relationship on its own) but there are a few notable exceptions.
I'm not gonna lie, I like people that look good, but I would never consider an airhead to be my partner.
What we gonna talk about? About how hot s/he is? Fuck no... I need someone with brains and who have great personalities, who can make me laugh me who would helpe to help other people. Good hearts over bimbos
I always look at looks first before I decide whether i'm interested in getting to know a guy romantically because I know if i'm not attracted to him it's pointless to even try and i'll only end up wasting both of our times all while giving the guy false hope. Also I think it's fair to do so when those very same guys are only interested in getting to know me for my looks not for who I am. I mean do you honestly expect me to believe you went out of your way to try and get my number when we just met because you like me as a person particularly when you've only complimented me on my appearance.
The funny thing in this poll is 53 guys claim it to be true whilst 66 girls claim it to be false. Anyways no I won't date a dumb guy just because he is good looking. I know one but both my heart and mind says he is a trouble :)
I don't care about looks at all. All guys I have been crushing over so far, weren't anything I would consider "atractive". It was their personality that attracted me to them. Why do people give so much on lookism? It's stupid in my opinion.
I don't think so necessarily, but I do think that we all collectively base our dating-related decisions much more on looks than we would generally admit. Can we just throw the "shallow" b. s. out the window? We're all shallow (braces for downvotes). When I became muscular it was NIGHT and DAY the difference in attention I got from women. It's really crazy to think about. I'm not trying to be prideful but, based on my exp. and observation women are much more looks-focused than they would general admit.
And for guys, well, I think it's common knowledge we are looks-focused so there's not too much debate there.
But after the first step/stage of attraction or dating, the deeper attributes (personality, chemistry, intelligence blah blah blah) play a large role too of course.
greek gods are women's stop for one night stands and when it comes to relationships, its more of intelligence with well, not too hideous looks. But again, you dont want to be with a woman who has had a history of sleeping around if you care for your own self respect.
