Guys won't even consider dating a girl unless she is (very) attractive to him. Guys only approach girls based solely on looks. Whereas girls can force themselves to overlook a not so good looking guy (initially or a friend) because he has other admirable traits that make him desirable, and eventually, more appealing. Such as treating her well, being funny, having a good job or pursuing a degree, etc.
What do you think?
- Guys are more shallow
- Girls are more shallow
So step off. <3

It's all just preferences. I think the whole notion of "shallowness" is WAY overblown. People like other people for all sorts of random reasons. Attractiveness, height, humor, intelligence, sociability, disposition, wealth, age, race, religion, culture, etc., etc. And they're ALL equally "shallow" or put another way, equally personal. So no, I don't think guys are any more shallow than girls, but then again, I don't see a problem with ANY dating criteria. You should ONLY date people you're excited about dating. You're not doing anyone any favors by giving them a shot if you're not into it.
To your first point, I think girls are WAY more focused on the looks of girls than most guys are! Hahaha! I mean, you'll never hear guys picking apart what a girl wears or how her hair looks like other girls will. And I know PLENTY of girls who have very strict criteria like age, height and education level cut offs that they apply to guys. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Again, you should be excited about who you date.
