Guys, Are looks ALWAYS a factor?

If you were friends with an average looking girl who is overweight for many years, and really got to know her; loved her personality and who she was as a person, could you date her? Why or why not?

  • Honestly, they are always a factor. If there's no physical attraction at all then a romantic relationship probably won't work. If I really loved someone's personality, then they don' t have to be exceptionally attractive to me but there has to be at least some degree of attraction. If they're initially average looking it's possible that I might find them attractive if I really like them as a person, but it depends. Also, what constitutes "average looking" or "attractive" definitely varies by person.

  • I'm in this exact situation. Met a girl on match while I was separated. And we clicked big time before we met. Qualities in the connection I didn't know I could have. Similar experiences values, etc, exciting. She said she was chubbier than pictures. We met, I was attracted and serve been together a year. But she's not as mobile/ physical as I'm used to. She said she wanted to lose weight for herself. Great. A year later she gained weight and can't do the things I want to do like skiing, etc. She may not be committed to health, but I know she loves me dearly.

    I love this girl but it's an issue, probably a deal breaker now that it's played out. It is about prioritizing yourself. In that first date you are presenting the other person with what you are ok with in life. Both in words and in body. Talk is cheap. If you want to lose weight, get stated in the routine before dating, so that it's not on them to motivate you. If you don't want to lose weight then don't, but on a solid relationship the person always wants to know you respect yourself and thrive!

  • All people are the same. When you first meet them, you want their respect and they wan yours. If you are obese, it is obvious to the other party that you do not respect yourself so why should they respect you. Stop waddling and start walking, you might find life a new and better package.

  • If you were friends with an average looking GUY who is overweight for many years, and really got to know HIM; loved HIM personality and who HE was as a person, could you date HIM? Why or why not?

    If girls aren't willing to, why should guys?

    • I think that personality is the most important. If I had a guy friend who was average looking and I fell in love with him because of who he is, looks would not matter to me; love is love. However, there are people that would give up love due to looks...

    • Not if the guy is poor though.

    • Not true in my opinion. I make great money and support a disabled husband who only makes $15,000/yr... money is not most important.

  • Yes. I do have preferences, but I can look past most if our personalities go well together.

    One thing I can't get over is big bellies that spill over. I draw a hard limit there. No exceptions.

  • Looks are always a factor, unless the girl is butt ugly or deformed, the guys can overlook it if they really like her.

  • Only in regards to relationship prospects. I have to actually be physically attracted to them. But I don't have silly expectations either.

  • Attraction is the combination of looks and personality. Without looks there's no initial interest and without personality there's no relationship.

  • attraction is required, or it's just platonic friendship.
