Yes I agree that personality should matter a little more than appearance but do you think it's wrong to not date someone you're not at all physically/sexually attracted to even though they have a nice personality? Is it wrong to have any kind of preferences at all?
My brother for example is ONLY attracted to skinny women and for them to be a certain skin tone but that's just what he's attracted to and of course all of his girlfriends were his exact preferences and yes they were good successful relationships. He even told me himself that he cannot imagine dating an overweight woman because that's not what he's attracted to.
Me for instance I'm only attracted to NON-BLACK men only I'm just not at all physically/sexually attracted to black men at all and I can't help that. But do you think that preferences of ANY KIND is wrong and that personality should only matter or do you think that people should date whoever they are attracted to?

I don't think having racial preferences, or any type of physical preferences when it comes to who you'll date is wrong. Physical appearance, which is a large part of what contributes to sexual chemistry, is what differs between someone you see as a potential boyfriend/girlfriend, and who you'll only view platonically.
People select friends and their social circle based mostly on preferred personality traits. Significant others are selected based on a combination or not only personality traits, but also sexual/physical characteristics that are preferred. Often that will go hand in hand with race, like say a guy preferring blondes or girls who are blue eyed. He can say his racial preference is white girls, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Likewise for if someone likes personality traits or facial features commonly found in Asian/Latino guys... just a matter of preference. No harm done!0
