Well seems like if you really want to date/be in a long term relationship (or try), you are going to have to compromise. If you are looking for long term, a good partner, etc. a decent looking woman with the great personality sounds best. Do you just want sex and no connection then for the rest of your life? Go for the "hot" ones, but it might not be as fulfilling as the other.

Here's some motivational music.
