    Ive been talking with people all month tbf, takes about 2 days to get things moving for me when I see something I like.

    Not sure what you plan on doing with your life, something dreadfully average I presume for someone of your own assumed abilities. Incidentally, I could not care less but I appreciate your own interest in my life. That speaks volumes

    That's generally if you go higher (6'4"+), medically speaking I'm fairly sure 6'2" is optimum though Isometrix will know this better than me. That's true, but the point I was making is that 6'2" ugly will get more girls than 5'10" ugly, and same applies if both are good looking.

    That's a false statement that I'll choose to ignore.
    Not true at all... i'm 6ft1 and dog ugly, my face would probably look better with a brown paper bag over it. Being a few inches taller doesn't suddenly make you a better person or more appealing.

    Looks are obviously important as well, not sure why people suggest otherwise :dontknow:

    Looks definitely are. No doubt about it. And it's not even a bad thing.
    They are important don't get me wrong but if you want to spend the rest of your life with someone then their personality triumphs since their good looks would eventually fade away as they get older.

    Yes they will it's a fact of life. Just like they'll choose the richer, more desirable one as well, just like guys are more shallow and will pick the prettier girl. Not saying personality doesn't matter but these things are just as if not more important.
    Not everyone is shallow like that though. Each to their own I guess...

    Probably true. For me personally once you're at a certain level then it doesn't matter after that.

    My last girlfriend was really good looking, had a nice big batty, large breasts, wavy brunette hair, impeccably groomed etc, spot on but dull as dishwater, an airhead and generally shallow. Think Kim K in personality.

    I would take an objectively speaking, less better looking over that but if they had bad hygiene, were seriously overweight, bad skin etc it wouldn't matter how great their personality was.

    In my opinion of course.

    That's probably not true have some more confidence, and in any case not the point I was making. If someone was considered the same level as you looks wise, and for the situation to remove doubt let's say an identical personality, you would get the girl over the shorter guy.

    Why is it shallow though? Surely you want to have a good looking desirable partner (desirable can encompass height, money, personality etc.) I don't buy into the argument that getting a partner based on looks (as long as it isn't PURELY looks) is shallow.

    Are there also racist, homophobic, and drug/alcohol abusing idiots who claim to know z-list celebrities?

    Tom, do you find yourself being romantically interested in one sex more than the other but sexually interested in both? Just wondering can tell me to mind my own if you like.
    Romatically and sexually in both, but I will NEVER be the 'bottom *****'. Ever.

    Yeah it's all about having someone who overall is great rather than having just one or two stand out features/characteristics.

    I agree, a balance is needed in terms of looks/money/ambition/height/personality etc. I meant that some people wouldn't mind if the person is average looking/below average as long all other qualities are right for them.
