*insert people talking about how it isn't, when in reality they really would want someone who would actually be nice to look at*

Of course you need to be physically attracted to them...saying that though, great character adds to how attractive they are to you and makes them more physically appealing...

Not really.

I don't feel sexual attraction but I do want to have a romantic relationship. I base whether or not I want a relationship with someone on whether or not we click.

There must be some initial attraction. Not necessarily sexual. At least something physical though.

Physical attraction is sexual attraction. Either way I don't feel it.

It depends on what stages in life you're in, when you get older you have to have more then looks... A good job, a good head on your shoulder, a good influence, provider. When I was younger I liked bad boys that were hot.

Meh. I think for me physical attraction is nurtured a lot by romantic feelings. I think there is probably a "limit", but the bar isn't very high, partly because I don't take great care of myself so can't expect much (I'm not overweight or anything, just lacking exercise and have poor diet which probably doesn't help me..) but honestly I don't think it's a calculated decision made on that basis, more of a gut feeling.

Guys do you think it's possible to force/ change how you see someone physically? A guy told me I should try and make myself physically attracted to him, that it will come later after some time but I told him I think it's impossible. I've tried and nothing changed. However there are couples where a partner has admitted originally they were not physically attracted to their spouse yet after months/years it changed. I realised later how complex and complicated attraction is.
I think whether you're physically attracted to someone CAN change, but I don't think you can force it to. A sexual attraction to someone can develop, it can take you by surprise, and I do think personality and character has a lot to do with that (I also put a lot of stock in the idea that if you like someone, they'll appear more attractive to you, and if you don't think someone is a nice person, they can start to seem less attractive to you even if they still objectively look the same).

There's an important distinction though, between developing an attraction to someone organically and trying to make it happen. I don't think you can try to cultivate an attraction to someone if you just don't feel it. We can't always explain what makes us attracted to people, but we sure as hell know whether we are or not.

As long as she's not ugly its cool, personality is more important for me.

Average looks, great personality> Hot with an average personality
