Does being beautiful or handsome really matter?

It would seem that men are always attracted to beautiful women and women attracted to handsome men... What about the ones that aren't so beautiful or handsome? Do you think beautiful people can love or like people that aren't as beautiful or do you think its near impossible?.. I need some gals and guys to really answer this seriously...thanks_puzzled...

  • Beauty or handsomeness is always a positive quality.

    However. Beauty or handsomeness is completely subjective. Therefore regardless what the "most common opinion" *possibly* is, that barely ever applies to an actual individual. Thus, some might find you attractive, some might not. Some might think you're pretty, some might not. Some think you're beautiful, some don't.

    So being handsome does matter. But it's nothing to be wondering about, 'am I pretty'? Some think you are, some think you aren't. What matters is whether *that specific person* that you like, does HE think that you are attractive. That is what *truly* matters, really.

  • Initial attraction will always matter. I don't care what anyone says. This doesn't mean that a person spending time with a less attractive person will not eventually find things attractive about them. But the initial attraction will always draw in or deter a person. But if people are hanging out often then it doesn't mean it couldn't happen. And if you are with a more attractive person then you will always worry about them wanting something better, and if you are the more attractive person then you will always wonder if you could do better. So in general, people need to be the same number or plus or minus 1 on the attractive scale of 10.

  • Hmm, don't want to be a boner killer, but attractiveness is always a plus. Well at least as an attention getter.It just makes getting to know someone so much easier. BUT if your personality is great, and you show that personality off, then someone who is interested will see it and start initiating him/herself. Good looks is what starts the relationship, personality is what keeps it going.

  • It matters to a point, but what a person considers to be attractive can vary quite a lot from what others think. For example one of my mates say that the girls I date are scary looking lol...

    Mind he never says they are ugly so idk...

  • I guess its normal for human being to like something that is attractive in their eyes.We can't really help ourselves when we are attracted to someone,but their personality and attitude can make them less attractive.Attractiveness is matter to some people and it comes first than personality.

  • Look around. When you see a super gorgeous guy is the girl he's with EVER average? And vice versa, Looks matter people are MEGA concerned with how they look and how other things and people make them look. I am too but it doesn't dictate what I do or who I'm with. Extremely attractive people may take interest in average looking people but in the end they never stay with them.
