    Seems like a massive overgeneralization. And if this was the case, why do most marriages / long term relationships not survive past ten years?
    Because people get bored and used to the same personality every day after day after day after day and it is no longer fresh and new and it just becomes stale and ****.

    Because people change. But the point is, their looks change more.

    I've voted for 50:50, but it's not really a case of a ratio of importance because that would suggest that having either an extremely good personality or extremely good looks would be enough if you were mediocre in the other, which isn't true. I'm only going to be romantically interested in a girl who I feel that I enjoy talking to and can connect with on a significant level, but I'm also only going to be interested in a girl who I find physically attractive - it's a case of two conditions being met. A great personality and no looks suggests someone I'll like as a friend, and great looks with no personality suggests someone I might lust after but never have a serious interest in.

    i'm a girl and though i may be attracted to a cute guy, if he hasn't got a sense of humour.. it's a no go!
    i voted 50:50
    if a guy hasn't got a likeable personality then it's a lost cause..

    I think the more intelligent the person the more they go for personality

    I think I'm a little strange. I know lots of supposedly attractive girls and I genuinely have never cared one iota about them, romantically. I find it hard to find people attractive without being drawn to who they are as people, and it happens so rarely that it's rare I find girls I'm very attracted to. So yeah. Personality FTW. I figure that because there was a girl who some might call ugly that I was very attracted to because I thought she was megacool, but I've met countless "hot" girls who I could just about get on with that didn't do anything for me.

    Well, you know what's rare?

    Someone talking like you, and not being either a) fat/deformed or b) a social recluse/degenerate.

    If you're not in high demand you should be.

    most girls say they look for a good personality and reasonable looks, however in 'real life' girls just want the bad guys, they contradict what they say and do.

    Surely a hot dumb guy could do that as much, or more (mindless devotion) than, a smart or interesting one? ':cool:'
