    It's all subjective - someone who looks pretty to you may not neccessarily be to another, with the age old phrase - "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Same with personality. Everyone has a personality, it's just up to each person whether he/she gets along with that type of personality I guess.

    IMO, this poll and thread is pretty pointless, not all boys'll think the same nor all girls so it really shouldn't be anything definitive. However, that said, I would like to see how the results'll turn out. For both men and women, at the attraction stage it's probably looks initially then personality after though with the internet age it's increasingly becoming reversed. For a main relationship, it should be a nice balance between both - and again is in the eye of the person viewing and being with the other.

    This poll should really be "what do PEOPLE look for in others", not really limiting it to boys. Strip away the physical differences and you'll find boys and girls are very much the same...

    I'm not nasty, or shallow, but I voted looks. You'll nearly always be attracted to a woman through looks at first, such is the nature of men.
    I don't have personality x ray specs, does that make me have a hidden penis? :eek:

    It's the same with all people, human nature. However, for the relationship to work there must also be a compatability of personality.

    Rather than a fit girl with a really annoying personality or a ugly bird with a great personality...

    I'd go for a cute average looking girl with an alright personality. She'd be a freak in bed too

    It's the nature of women also - we, as humans, just anything (not just potential partners) by their looks initially, sometimes without noticing or even realising. Going on both as a whole is good, having that visual and mental/emotional attraction I feel is good, a nice balance is a good relationship.

    It becomes shallow, IMO, when it lacks the interest in personality - i.e. only going out with him/her because of their looks.

    Yup, most definitely. Women saying that only men are shallow is as equally annoying as men saying that it is the nature of males to be shallow. Our minds constantly assess physical attractiveness and body language at first, which of course initially attracts us to that person. Not every character trait can be separated in two boxes, not any for that matter.

    I mean, it depends on what sort of relationship you're after too- a quickie=looks over personality, long term= good equilibrium of the two, and friends = personality over looks.

    Men are initially attracted on looks, women go more for confidence. It's basically Darwinian - we're looking for something healthy to have our children and they're looking for something able to protect the nest.

    Now that's out of the way, no one ever porks chubbers when sober. Get over it.

    what do boys consider important, looks or personality, or something else? what if a girl was ugly but really nice?
    personality is more important, but it should be noted it would be difficult or impossible for a lot of people to go out with someone they thought were "ugly".

    you need to be attracted to the person.

    put it this way...id rather go out with a girl with a nice personality who looks nice/fine/ok (whatever word you want to use), than go out with a stunner who was a complete *****.

    Probably true(ish). My boyfriend's gorgeous compared to me, and I'm not trying to be harsh to myself!

    sorry to say but most guys that talk abt having hot chicks and looks are the most important tend to either have horrible personalities or tend to be bad looking.

    depends i mean ur not gonna go for one extream or the other, i think the best is a happy medium. i mean looks first attract a guy and then a personality keeps him there... but u could get to know a guy with personality and u could grow on him and become hottor in his eyes,
