I was wondering this for a while now after a friend mentioned that attraction is important in a relationship, and if you don't find them attractive it won't work.
Do you think you could date someone you're not initially attracted to? Would you give them a chance to get to know them? Is attraction REALLY important in the beginnings of a relationship?
theses are the questions people.

From a relationship coaching lens, physical attraction is very important to warrant further getting to know someone. That said, the other two types of attraction (intellectual and emotional) can make-up for it but it is difficult because, again, something has to make someone want to stay around someone that they don't know anything about.1

I believe that attraction grows over time. It really depends on what you mean by attraction. Physical attraction or sexual attraction. Because Physical attraction is important to a very small degree, ONLY for the right reasons. I believe that you should only get married to somebody who you want and desire sex with, so that is important on the physical scale of your preference as long as it's reasonable. However, personality is key and so is compatibility in areas of morality, principles, etc. If you lack the things in common that matter to you such as what are your belief's in important areas, it won't matter how you feel about that person, or how attractive they are to you. It definitely won't work. It is your choice to be attracted to that person. And if you don't want to, then it won't happen.1
