How important is physical appearance to you? Would you rather date a person that looks good? Or would you have them be average-looking with an amazing personally?

While most guys will deny it. It is important. The thing is, what guys see as attractive can differ. The media doesn't determine physical attractiveness by the typical guy's standard. It has its own standards that many guys may see as attractive, but many also don't.
What I will say though is that physical attractiveness is easily a leading cause as to why a guy will not be interested though. Being in the US you can easily see how many guys and girls are overweight. It's a real turn off and instead of trying to get in better shape we are slowly seeing people trying to enforce unhealthy lifestyles in the form of "acceptance" movements. We're seeing girls spend hours in front of mirrors covering up what they don't like about themselves instead of simply getting in shape and being healthy which makes them more attractive without makeup compared to a girl who is covering herself in makeup just to be seen later while the guy ends up being turned off. It's disappointing for the guy and heartbreaking for the girl when it happens.
Guys who say "looks don't matter" also need to stop lying. Looks do matter. How much they matter will differ but there's only like... 1% of the population who really could care less about looks.1

As much as we'd hate to admit it looks are important when it comes into play towards our emotions. We have to be or feel some what physically attracted to that person.
With that being said they don't have to be the most attractive person in the world because what they're lacking physically they make up in other ways.
But we can't say that physical attraction isn't important because if we don't find the other person attractive in any way, shape, or form regardless of their personality it just won't work.2
