I personally went by more of a grading scale

It's weird but I have been using this scale forever.
So you use a scale in general or do you go more by what you see that takes place. What is your personal way of choosing a person? Yes personality is important but you don't see personality at first.

Here's the breakdown of how I use and see the 1-10 scale:
1- Monster can't look at them or they'll burn your eyes out.
2- Heinous, Busted- Needs plastic surgery.
3- Plain Ugly- Someone who was born ugly.
4- Below Average/Unattractive- Someone you'd never go out with.
5-Average, could be slightly unnatractive, someone you wouldn't look at twice.
6- Barely Do-able, wouldn't date them, but they can look OK if they try hard, also wouldn't look twice.
7- Cute- someone you wouldn't be ashamed of, I could settle for this but at the same time I would be thinking I could do better.
8-Generally Hot/Good Looking- definitely datable.
9-Super Smoking Hot- People you don't see in public often and most likely out, of my league
10- Perfection- dosen't exist but someone can and definitely out of my league
IMO the 1-10 scale will only apply to you/yourself. e.g. If I saw a guy and thought he was really hot I would give him a 10 because he is exactly my type. But in reality he's probably only an 8, he could never be a model he's attractive to most or many but not to everyone.
If a guys is attracted to me and at what I consider a literal 8, he's definitely datable. That's how I use the scale. I would say I do use this in general as a way of choosing a guy I like, a 7 would be the only exception.
