Is a woman's looks the most important factor for men?
What Girls Said 17
Most guys will go for someone who is attractive to them or easy on the eyes. That doesn't mean you have to look like 10 or have a supermodel body. I never cared how people perceived me, or if any guy liked me. Stuff like that is way to overwhelming.0
I think that something needs to attract them physically. Like the legs, ass, eyes, face, body, etc.. But not every part of a woman has to be attractive. Personality is a must unless he's just planning to fuck her.2
I think a lot of men also care about personality, but it depends on what stage of life they are in and what kind of partener they are looking for6
I think it's important to have that initial attraction not just for men but for anyone - the first encounter between two people will be solely based on looks and if that doesn't light the spark then I'd argue that it would be a means to an end.0
I think looks determines whether the relationship will start while personality determines whether the relationship will last.3
Why? I've seen plenty of guys who go on dates because they love how the girl looks, they lie to themsleves that she's also funny and smart... and perfect for them until the reality hits them, but they still stay in the relationship because they don't want to give up the sex... and how his friends view him as some sort of a hero for pulling off such a hot girl.
He's also, of course, shopping around for someone equally as hot - with a hopefully better personality. When he thinks he finds her, he leaves the first one and moves on... And the cycle either goes on, or the girl dumps him first...
Either way, they would make all sorts of excuses for the hot women and date them proudly and despite of their actual emotional needs... because looks, although not everything, are what's most important to the majority of them.4

For a lot of men, yes. I've seen men admit to it. If you're not going to give a woman the time of day just because of the way she looks, what do you call that?0
It might be for a very shallow man. But I don't think that's the case for the most part.2
hell no. as its not for men. there are millions and millions beautiful people on this earth, but only a handful beautiful hearts... .0
It depends on how the guy looks at it, but in all honesty, the appearance of someone does attract you to walk over to them and strike up a convo!0
Sure, most people want the best they can get. I do think guys will settle way more often though.0
Men care for looks more than women, but it's not the only thing they want... I hope.0
I know society makes it seem like it is nowadays but I actually wonder the same thing. When I was in my early to middle teenage years I wasn't exactly attractive and always felt sad that I couldn't get male attention. Now that I'm in my twenties I look a lot better now than I did then but I wouldn't say I have the best luck with men. They don't really approach/flirt with me. I know that men can get intimidated about approaching as do girls but sometimes I can't help but wonder if something is actually drawing guys away from me.1
It's not, they just need someone to fuck.0
it is important1

Depends on how you look at it, pun intended. Looks are not completely separate from personality. Being unhappy is probably the number one cause of overeating, and ultimately obesity. Thinner women are more likely to be happy and fun to be around. Same for men too.
Also, many women are completely delusional about how fat they are. I'm 5'9" 180 and I'm pretty muscular, I can bench 335 and deadlift 500, I would consider myself overweight, little bit of a spare tire. A woman who is 5'5" 160 is obese, despite these women often describing themselves as average.
For reference, here is a woman at an ideal weight. She is 5'8" and 120 lbs.
I don't mind women who have some flab. Women who are a little overweight can still be very attractive as everyone carries weight a little bit differently. But obese is definitely a deal breaker. An average woman who is 5'4"-5'5" should be wary when they start getting into the 130s and 140s as you're probably approaching obesity if they aren't a weightlifter.0

For most men, looks are NOT the most important factor. After all, you have to connect on a personality level for something to work. There are some guys however, even here on GaG, that will moan about how they just can't find a girl. I have a suspicion that THEY'RE the ones who only want a hottie. For them, looks are the most important factor.4
I wouldn't say "most important" no but important yes. I believe you must be attracted to anyone you're with and that goes for both men and women. Not that they have to be models, but YOU have to find them attractive as well as like their personality. Looks are also generally what guys notice first. But certainly not the "most important" Unless a guy wants only a purely sexual relationship.0
Well, the guys that said 'no' are clueless. Or dead.
A woman's youthful beauty is her most valuable asset - it's what puts her at the peak of her SMV. After that it's just, well, starting to get past it's 'sell by' date.
Peak value rounds out a lot of things for men, so theirs comes much later. But no, for a woman, it's her youth and purity, her beauty.

Well I would say looks are the most important thing for women too.
Your personality generally only matters AFTER you meet that person's looks criteria first. If you don't, then it doesn't matter what your personality is like, you can't be with that person. Looks are the biggest predictor of what kind of people you are able to date.
Also an attractive murderer probably has better odds of having sex and getting into a relationship than an ugly law abiding citizen would.1
I've said this many many times. She doesn't have to be a super model, in fact I'd rather she not be. Also what fun is it if she doesn't understand my quirky personality and gets offended by everything I say? So to sum it all up our personalities have to get along, and I have to be attracted to at least a few of her physical features.1
Looks matter more because personality often time changes to accommodate each other if you really want it to work. But looks will be the same relative to each
Which is why you almost never see people dating someone they find unattractive, that is because from what it seems, personality does not matter more0
Looks are needed to draw me in, personality is needed to keep me there.
But since ugly people are just as likely to have a shitty personality as pretty people, I'm not going to bother with them and go for someone who meets more of my requirements from the get go.0
Growing up with women taught me a lot. Like women don't like to be objectified. Looks are cool but there not everything. Like I personally try to get with women who have a quirky Cuteness. Like braces or short hair small chest area likes comics.. those are things GS I enjoy and if she has em and wants to date hell yeah just off of her being herself.1
These can stay longer than looks. Looks fade.
But Personality and Intelligence aren't also permanently. However these both are choices. Looks aren't.
My final answer is NO!0
Not even close. That's superficial. What is inside is so much more important. Good looks are just the wrapping. It gets old like the paper.0
It usually is at first, anyway. When you first meet someone you usually know nothing about them beyond how they look, right now. It isn't realistic to see someone across a crowded room and think, I bet she has a great sense of humor.0
When looking for a girl yes, however if a woman is straight up nasty her looks go out the door. The reason why I go for looks is because I figure their has to be a nice looking girl with a good personality, why wouldn't I try for that?0
Women are not the center of this world. Males and females walk on this Earth equal. Looks are not the biased factor for liking someone. There are many other factors to see. Looks can give you a false factor about the person.0
can't believe how many voted yes. What a sad world we live in.2
Eh... It's what attracted me to my girlfriend initially but after knowing her, it wasn't the most important.
I don't really know which to pick.1
To mess around with? Yes
To date? Yes, but then she needs a good personality and other traits too.0
Appearance can tell us a lot about a person but I would say style has more pull than physical looks.
Style attracts me to them then personality takes it from there.0
There has to be physical attraction, certainly. But even the most attractive woman will become repulsive if her attitude is fucked up. Or if she's a feminist.0
It's a factor. I'm not sure I'd say it's the most important, though. Her attitude/personality matters just as much - or even more so than looks, in my opinion.0
