I'm too shy to flirt or tease a girl which is why I suffer in the dating world. But looks can compensate initially, repeat INITIALLY, which means I can achieve the milestone of getting a date, something which I never had before in my life.
Looks lead to a girl's admiration
A girl's admiration leads to better Confidence
Confidence leads to More dates

They don't substitute for one another because they're two totally different things.
Being attractive is always good.
Not having good social skills hinders you. Of course, if you're attractive, not quite as much as it would if you were unattractive. But if you're considered unattractive by most people you're not gonna do so well anyway.
I'm shy, so shy guys and me don't mix well. Neither of us would every do anything.

Speaking from experience. Initially it helps. I was once fat and shy. 7 years later after grinding the gym my physique is on point. I get girls grabbing my arms feeling my abs but I soon realised a few years ago this means nothing if you can't hold a conversation. now I have put effort into improving my social skills and speaking with girls and now I have 10 times more success with girls and its all down to developing social skills not my looks or body. If you invest all this time into the gym its good for your health and confidence but dont expect a girl to drop her panties because you have abs and 18inch biceps because your have a quick wake up call. I would suggest developing your social skills as well as improving your appearance. If you can make a girl laugh and show her a good time then she will be more impressed with that than a cover model physique, of course if you can do both then you will have them lining up. good luck
