ok so good looks arent everything right? Personality is important but how important are looks?

for me... personality is most important - sure looks matter but when ur old and grey its the personality that remains

Looks are obviously what attracts us all at, we don't look at someone and say "wow, chekc out their great personality!" cause that's just not the way it works. But in the end, it's always personality that wins out. Always. And you may not be attracted to someone right away, but over the course of time their personality shines through, and because of that, you begin to find them VERY attractive! Such is the case with me currently! :oops:
But yes, bottom line, looks are second to last in the importance factor

Yes, of course looks are what you first notice about someone, but I have gone out with beautiful people whose personalities made them ugly and not so beautiful people that I ended up thinking were gorgeous because of who they were.

However, I think you have to like someone's looks to a certain extent to be able to go out with them, because no matter how nice someone is, if you are utterly physically unattracted to them, it's not going to work properly!xxx

well in my opinion personality should be more important but in this image obsessed world i dont think it is, now without meaning to sound rude even guys (and girls) who arent great looking themselves dont want to go out with people who arent "perfect" people see what the media describes as perfect and thats what they want and also especially with the male of the species its the whole peer pressure thing of going for gorgeous girls with huge boobs. This guy who was meant to be my friend said to me four years ago (OMG i cant let go) that if i were better looking he would go out with me :evil: which as you can probably tell really annoyed me so thats just one thing that goes to show looks are considered more important (just in case you hadnt guessed by now i am very cynical)

Ah it's okay Nail Queen. I know the use of the word was justified, but we just don't allow it here.

i would go out with the elephant man if his personality was good. i know my ex is reading this, and i know he's annoyed but i just never felt like he gave me all i deserved. i like men who listen to you as well as talk to you, someone who can make you laugh and who makes you feel like you're wonderful. someone that probably doesnt exist for me but there ya go.
