I recently "friend zoned" a guy because I wasn't physically attracted to him (he has really bad acne) However, I had a change of heart because his personality is great. He's funny, intelligent, kind, sweet etc. We went on our first date tonight and honestly I had a fantastic time, I was actually able to look past the exterior. The problem is, I kept thinking to myself will his personality be enough in the long run? Like what if after a few months of dating I just can't deal with the fact that there's no physical attraction there and I end up breaking his heart? I don't want to seem shallow, I'm just trying to be as honest as possible with myself and with him. What should I do?

go with your gut. you can take all our opinions into account but go with your gut. personality goes a long way obviously as it doesn't fade with age. a good looking person matters to a lot of people, but if you allow yourself to experience different things, you may open up your world to an entire new perspective you would have never dreamed of that may take you through endless years of happiness. its your choice.1

It's usually easier for women to be content with personality than men. It's not a good or bad thing---it just is. There have been plenty of guys I'm not physically attracted to but would love to be with just because they're so likable.
Just take it slow. If you genuinely develop feelings for him then his outer appearance will no longer be any sort of turn-off. But if you find yourself consistently discontent with his looks then let him go find a girl who DOES truly like him.1
