"Looks" can help personality


An annoying personality can kill "looks"

as usual, i concur

Both to some extent.
Yes people will notice looks more appealing to them (a matter of taste. what may be pretty to someone may be ugly to someone else) But what really makes the cut if you will is the personality.

I think everyone likes to look at beautiful people, but when it comes to relationships looks aren't as important as some might think. I mean, ugly people get married too, not just pretty people. I've known plenty of guys who are great-looking that I wouldn't go out with in a million years because they are boring, stupid, obnoxious, etc. - and I've also met guys who aren't that physically attractive that I end up being attracted to anyway because of their personality. When that happens they somehow become good-looking in my eyes.

personality wins by far, it can make even the ugliest person alive attractive.

if i am interested and attracted to a guy it is more due to their personality than their looks.

Unfortunately, I think that looks are pretty important in the early stages of starting up romantic relationships....when you are first deciding if you want to pursue more.

That said, it's amazing how varied people's tastes in looks really are. I find all kind of people gorgeous that others would not. I personally also prefer somewhat "flawed" looking people...makes them more interesting. Nothing is more boring than models.

I think that online relationships would have the advantage that you can really get to know someone's personality first without seeing a picture. The person might grow to be so attracted to the other's personality that the importance of looks really takes a back seat after awhile....in fact the person might even change their mind about what they find physically attractive in the first place! I have known that to happen. A woman I know found this guy she was dating to be TOTALLY not her "type" physically...but eventually she found him utterly appealing after getting to know him, and subsequently became attracted to other men who looked like him too.

It's also amazing how people can look so different in person from in photos. I am always amazed at meeting interference friends...even after seeing their photos they look totally different.

i am never shocked by meeting people online, you all look the same as you do in pics, however what amazes me is the personalities. most people i have met in person tend to be shy. which always surprises me.

Love hurts.... that is for sure. to anyone who is hurting.
So do negative comments about your appearance.
It is very much an individual thing, some people are so superficial and shallow..BLARGH to them.
If I love someone or enjoy their company, their appearance is of no consequence. Sure I have an idea of "classic beauty" e.g. Johnny Depp, Nuno, an arab stallion with good confirmation, Elle MacPherson etc.
But that is just superficially pleasing, nothing to do with chemistry or committment. It ain't what you got, but what you do with what you have got. If someone dumps you because of the way you look, it's their loss.

If it makes anyone feel better, I got some photos, AT LAST, of when my sister visited from Western Australia. It is rare for all 4 sisters to be together. Happy moments are captured, but because of the injury to my face I look like a dog.( I lost my smile, the more I smile the worse I look...sad thing to lose) I could easily slip in to a great big black hole of depression about it...but you have to "Rise Up' as the man said or as Carole King said..

"You got to get up every morning
With a smile on your face
and show the world
All the love in your heart
And people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find out, yes you will
That you're beautiful, you're beautiful
As You Feel..."

don't let the bastards grind you down.

On-line communication is far easier for a shy person than the face-to-face stuff. One reason I am shy in person is that I don't know what to say as part of normal social small talk. On-line, I have the luxury of thinking about what I say (and a chance to edit what I say). The computer is a nice, user-friendly wall in communication.
