What Attracts You More: Face or Body?

What Attracts You More: Face or Body?

The most attractive thing about you should have less to do with your face or body and more to do with your heart and how you treat people.

I am pretty sure we all can agree with the above quote.

But in all truth, how many of us actually apply those words to our dating life?

There's a greater portion of humans than are willing to admit, that will completely turn someone down based on an appearance given to them by genetics.

None of us got to decide our race or facial features. Whether we like the way we look or not, we just have to live with it (unless we were born into fame and fortune and can alter our appearance like countless celebrities).
Some of us are fortunate to have been born with great looks. It makes life easier in certain aspects; it definitely can work in ones advantage.

Along with one's naturally good looks, they have the choice of whether they want to add to their appeal by taking great care of our bodies or not paying attention to it (by lack of exercise and eating unhealthy foods).

When a person neglects their body, no matter how "attractive" they are facially, it is a deal breaker for those who feel a great body is a must have.

Neglecting your body can lead to obvious weight gain along with other health issues.

Some people would rather their person of interest have a great body, and a face that's not very attractive versus someone who has a attractive face and a unappealing body.

What Attracts You More: Face or Body?

I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder and some people would generally think none of the above photos are that bad. However, it is apparent that the first two people have far better bodies than their face. In other words, I would give a different rating for their faces than I would their bodies. The last two, aren't bad looking people facially, however their body weight would be a deal breaker for some people.

Which holds more importance to you when it comes to dating, the face or body?

Lets pretend you couldn't choose both and it had to be one or the other.

Be honest!

  • Face because you can change your body any time. In fact, I never approached a girl for her body. It's her face what attracts me (considering she has a tolerable body). My friends consider me weird for not caring about body and my standards are too damn high when it comes to face.

    Realistically, I will get a girl who has both because there are billions of options and I certainly consider myself to be way better than an average guy. But for the sake of your question, I'll go for a face even tho I should choose body, because that represents what you ARE, how you maintained yourself unlike face, what you get just luckily.

    Obesity will cause you diabetes, heart attacks and various other problems, making my love life shorter, but still, I don't think I can kiss an ugly face unless she saves my life. Yes, I'm that shallow.

  • Face definitely.

    When it comes to body mostly I just don't want fat or scrawny. Anything within the average range is attractive to me if the dude has a cute face.

  • The face: you look at it more often, it remains when the body ages and the body can be worked on. Plus I've always had a thing for pretty faces while I don't care nearly as much for boobs or butts. I've liked skinny, flat girls, chubby girls and everything in between but they always had a face I found pretty.

  • I'm going to have to be honest Stacyzee. I am a man of the body. I love a woman's face too, as well as her personality above all. I detest these loser neckbeards who have no problem degrading women via prostitution. But as far as sexual attraction goes, I like the body. The female anatomy to me is simply irresistible. Especially the legs and feet.

  • The face if the most important, cause you can't change it without plastic surgery, where someone who is just overweight, can just work to get healthier.

  • I think faces are more important, but they really go together. I may find a girl's face beautiful, but if her body is unattractive, I won't be interested. However, if I'm not attracted to her face, she could have a perfect 10 body and I wouldn't care.

  • Wow, good examples (extreme!). I would have to go with body. I think there are other kinds of bad bodies besides fat, but fat is definitely bad! A fat body can mess up a cute face, like it does for the girl here.

  • body i think matters more if face isn't bad.

    sex is so much better with a nice curvy body.

    curvy girls have tighter pussies generally. skinny hcicks have lose pusssies

  • As a matter of face, when we are Young, we'll check for both. It's like expecting a food item to be Delicious in view & Taste. But when time passes other qualities like love, attitude, behavior, other things plays a key role.

  • I guess if I had to pick one body is more important. But seriously, if I have to put a bag on her head or turn off the lights and pretend she's someone else why bother at all? That only works for so long. And that quote is one of those old meme's that is total horseshit, right up there with "time heals all wounds" (it doesn't). The real world doesn't work like that. In reality personality doesn't mean much if you are unattractive to the point no one wants to even talk to you or be seen with you in public to learn about it.

  • Face for sure. Whenever I look at someone I judge their attraction on their face because body shape isn't an issue. I like a little cushion as much as a chocolate bar chest.

  • Girls will most likely choose face guys will most likely choose body. I mean that first chick is ugly but her body is nice. And many men will call her hot lol. Men and women can't be anymore different when it comes to this. I choose face, if your ugly your ugly no amount of titty implants or muscles will change it. But if your like the big chick a body can be worked on.

    • That's a lie. Just because a guy fucks a low standard girl doesn't mean much. I have freinds who have sex with girls they don't think are all too great. They just a want the sex. Also, there would be a difference between a one night girl where her body means more than a girlfriend who's face is more important

    • @Shsqdadda
      Ey id have to disagree. Men I've known dont really care too much about the face as long as its not hideous and she looks good with makeup. they need arm candy

  • Face... As long as the body isn't very, very fat, I wouldn't really care about that. You can change your body, but not your face... Unless you get plastic surgery, but not many would put time and effort into that.

  • Face definitely! You are usually are first attracted to someone when they have clothes on, then you get to know them and their personality, then when you get physical you see their body.

  • Always the face. I never understand why ugly people work out to make their bodies look better. No one cares about their body. I understand why people work out for health reasons. There is nothing wrong with that. However I know a girl who eats healthy and works out not for health reasons, but to get a hot body. Her face isn't attractive at all. She knows it. So she tries to compensate for her face. It's pointless though. She just turned 30 and she still hasn't had a relationship.

    • So u are saying that is why black men workout? ?
      Anyone can have at least one good facial feature whether its nice lips or pretty eyes with a nice body to help out ur look (:

    • I didn't say anything about black men. I don't get it. What does this have to do with black guys who work out?
