Does looks really matter? So why do good looking people have lots of followers?

Girls and guys with average pics in their profile have much smaller followers-following ratio. So don't come with this bullshit that "I only care for his/her personality"

  • Are you asking if looks matter in a relationship? What does that have to do with followers? They aren't exactly related.
    In a relationship I need to be somewhat physically/sexually attracted to him, but then his personality is what will reel me in and keep me. If he's absolutely bangin' but has the worst personality nothing could get me to stay.
    So looks matter maybe 20-30% but that doesn't have to be conventually attractive, just what I like

    • you didn't get what i meant. looks are much more than 20-30%. people are so stupid that they even rate someone's opinion for his looks, and not for the real content.

      look at the amount of followers of GAGers who have good looking pic in their profile. and then look at their history

    • the same applies for you. you probably need to improve your figure by losing some pounds to get more followers. then, by stop being a chubby girl, hopefully you can have a better social awareness by socializing more with people in real life.

    • 😂 yes, because social awareness is based on weight and esthetic pleasure.
      As if I'm going to take "advice" from a petulant little boy who thinks he has the right to judge someone's appearance when he knows absolutely nothing about them. You're comments reek of insecurity and bitterness, and I hope you're able to grow a little more to understand making friends starts with being a good one because right now you're ugly on the inside, and I'm guessing not that great on the outside if your complaints are anything to go on.
      Good luck with that.

  • If what you want is superficial attention then yes, looks are of prime importance. People admire things which are aesthetically pleasing, that applies to people, animals, cars, clothes, you name it.

    Will being good looking ensure that you have a lot of sex? Maybe. Will it ensure that you are happy and have stable relationships, no. That requires actually being a competent human being.

    Looks are important, but they are not the only important aspect of a person and average looks are not an insurmountable barrier to a successful sex life and/or love life. You can transcend your looks with sufficient charisma and personality. If all you have behind average looks is bitterness then you are pretty much doomed.

  • of course looks matter, looks just aren't the only thing that matters.

    • but it's the main thing that matters, i have seen a couple of girls here who are pretty but their opinions are most of times just "meh" or bullshit

    • What matters most to you might matter less to someone else. I'd say looks act as the gateway, if you aren't physically attracted to someone then you're unlikely to date them.

      However, personality and such will determine if someone stays with you.

  • Good looking people get lots of followers, that's no secret
    But I've also seen people with either average pics or no profile pic at all that are hilarious and have a ton of followers on GaG

  • I think it's easier for attractive people to gain followers, because first impressions are important. What is the first thing you notice about someone? Their appearance. If they're well kempt, more people will be initially drawn to them. In the long run, though, personality is more significant, in my opinion.

    • in the long run, looks seems to be still more significant. look at the amount of followers of GAGers who have good looking pic in their profile. and then look at their history

  • In my experience, good looking people are also the ones who have better personalities.

    There are many people on here with no pics who have followers in the thousands.

  • Of course they do, there have been numerous studies that outline the numerous advantages of being conventionally attractive. Anyone who they dont matter is either delusional or full of shit.

  • i know looks matter.
    but what's the point here?
    isn't gag a place where the most helpful person aka good personality is needed?

    • the point is: people with good looks gains more followers just because of their looks, and not because of their helpfulness, or their wisdom, or their personality.

      actually most of people with a good pic in their profile doesn't have good enlightening opinions, they are overrated

    • Show All
    • there is no monetary benefit of it, GAG doesn't pay any one's here, but still those type of people are overrated

    • i feel you shouldn't care since these are there since the dawn of humanity.

  • Looks matter because it's the first thing people notices.
    Nobody fall in love on first attitude. :)

  • Of course LOOKS basically determine your upper potential:

    1. Better looking you are the more people will want to socialise with you and hang with you.

    2. Better looking you are the more people will notice your good characteristics and praise you for it.

    3. Better looking you are the less requirements you will need to get the job you want; good looking people get first cut dibs and can even beat out more qualified applicants.

    4. Sex/dating becomes easier

    5. People are nicer to you

    6. People give people a chance most of the time based on look and the remaining times it is due to money/status. So the better looking the more people will want to date you.

    7. Better looking you are the faster you can advance in your career.

    It's called the beauty premium and it basically shapes your life.
