Everyone always says that it's so shallow that looks are somewhat important. Yes it is shallow, but, to most people they are important. Why do you think we put on makeup, get clothes that probably flatter us, go out with friends to parties, clubs or bars and try to socialize? It's most likely not to meet new friends. Also, looks are what draws someone to another person in the first place. Personality is what hooks them in and makes them stay. So yes, to me they are important (I must be at least somewhat attracted) because that's what brings me in and then when I get to know them, it's what makes me stick around.
I'm between B and D :p one side of me is boy-crazy for cute chubby guys and the other side just of me becomes incredibly easily aroused and attached to guys with awesome personalities. thankfully, my boyfriend is both :]
I would have to be attracted to someone to date them even in looks you have to be to love someone you have to love all of them and just to make it clear if you think about it every person is attracted to someone by looks and every person is attracted to different types some people like heavy people some people like tiny spinners so it all evens out.
when it comes down to dating come on now, we have to be attracted to the person. it all goes into play looks personality smell. you have to enjoy these things about the person otherwise I mean you could "make" it work but who wants to do that. dating is a pleasure. so you have to be pleased at one level or another
I think both C and D. I usually go for the ones with looks but if I met a guy whom I ended up liking and he just so happened to be not attractive, it wouldn't bother me that much at all. It's pretty much a bonus if the person has the most amazing personality and is decent/ cute/ hot. As I said before, I don't go looking for the not so attractive ones, I usually go for the cute/ hot ones but personality is first on the list. If they are hot but have an all round absurd personality, then I would just forget about it. This is just my opinion :)
I mean there has to be some sort of attraction, but sometimes that can come after I get to know a guy. Or there may be times when I find a guy attractive, find out he's a jerk, and then the attraction is not really there anymore. You need both, but personality is probably the deciding factor between the two.
not really important. just as long as he looks hygienic, not shorter than me, and puts a little bit of effort into his outfits then it's all good. I'm nothing special, so I can't really have high standards when it comes to physical appearance in the opposite gender.
what's important is how a guy makes me feel about myself when I am around him.
B, there has to be connections on both internally and externally
I picked B, If I don't find someone attractive on some level then I just can't do it. But if they have a sh*tty personality I don't care how hot they are I can't be with them
C. When I started dating my boyfriend he was overweight. I still thought he was kinda cute, but I was mostly attracted to his personality. Now he works out 5 days a week and he's sexy as hell. yay :P :D
pretty important. if I'm not attracted to you, how can I get sexually intimate? well, maybe some people can but I need visual stimulation and attraction. I honestly don't know how to separate what is hot or cute (let alone "decent") by my definition compared to someone else's so...im gonna say I just need to be very attracted to him.
however, if I love his personality he can get away with a bit more but I won't lie - if he's ugly, it won't happen.
If I don't know the guy and I want to approach him, then looks are the important. If I get to know the guy or if I already know him and I'm looking to have a relationship, then it's his personality that will either attract me further or push me away. I won't base a relationship on just looks.
Its important to me because if I don't find you attractive, how could we date? Dating begins with attraction, it becomes more stable down the road because of personality and chemistry.
I have dated women before who I was on the fence whether I find her attractive or not, Its the root of any relationship and to deny that shows ignorance, Doesn't mean all of my girlfriends must be models, just I have to find you attractive without make up.
After there is mutual attraction is established, then personalities come into the mix, I have a saying that I probably stole from someone.
"Good looks will give you my attention for 10 mins, but a good personality will make me want to spend the whole day with you."
For me looks are important but its not the end all be all for decision making on whether I was going to date a girl. It matters more how much I know the girl. If I knew a girl in which we got along pretty well already, looks are going to be not that much of a priority because we would click on so much else. In all honesty, looks are probably more important to me if its a girl I don't know, like if I saw a really attractive girl in a coffee shop. And I think its that way for most people. Why? Because if we don't know the person, all you know about them is from what you see.
Imagine two people that were alike in every single way possible except overall physical attractiveness. One was a 10, the other a 6. And they were sitting alone in a coffee shop. A person approaching either one couldn't possibly know anything substantial about them such as what the do for living, how many friends they have, where they want to go on vacations, etc. The only concrete thing available to the viewer is appearances; think of it as something that person can already check off on a list preferred traits for a partner - the person would more likely approach the one more physically attractive. The only reason a person would approach the less attractive one would be most likely because the hold negative stereotypes against highly attractive people. For example, they might think that all very attractive people are rude or snobby, they are overall very shallow, or that they themselves believe they aren't attractive enough for the other person, to name a few.
Most studies on the subject show that looks are very important... at first. As people get to know one another, the importance of looks tends to fall down the list a little. Think of it this way, have you ever seen someone so insanely attractive. And eventually you go over and talk to them. And when they finally open their mouth you're like "yeahhhh I'm going to go sit down now" lol
Eh, its important but a lot depends on who she is. I've dated the hot 10s that guys see at bars and clubs, I've dated the sorority girls, and I always broke up with them and wasn't happy with them because of their lifestyle and their personalities. I'm really picky when it comes to people in my life in general, she has to be pretty, but I'm not asking for a super model.
Voted B, but it's kinda in-between A and B... looks are important, I won't lie. But at the same time, looks don't mean a thing if a girl doesn't have a good personality, or isn't friendly or cool.
I'm honestly pretty picky, but it comes down to me wanting a relationship for the right reasons... I won't settle for anything less than what I want or feel that I deserve. Not saying I expect a "perfect 10" tho either... I don't. Just someone I really like.
my main reason for wanting a beautiful girl is that I don't want to be out with her in a public place, and lookin at other girls. I want her to be beautiful so that she's the only one I want to look at.
at the same time tho, I don't expect a girl to want to be with me if she doesn't find me attractive.
