Hi! Do you think it is possible to be attracted to someone just due to their intelligence and charisma? Taking many physical features out of it?

No. Physical attraction will always play a part no matter what.

It can play a substantial part, but there has to be a fair amount of physical attraction...

Have you seen Stevie Wonder's wife?

Neither has he.


Jokes aside, in answer to OP's question, absoloutely.

Nope. That's why there are people called 'nerds'. They fit your description.

From a guy's perspective: longer term, intelligence is definitely a huge factor. I can't be attracted long-term to an unintelligent woman, and quite a few of my mates feel the same way. There's been more than a couple of instances of an objectively better looking girlfriend being dumped for an objectively less good looking but more intelligent one.

On the flipside, average girls can definitely appear much sexier because of intelligence, but from my experience there is a threshold of appearance beyond which no matter how intelligent, charming or witty the girl is, they struggle to get interest. Thank God for alcohol eh?

Agreed. Physical attraction alone cannot maintain a relationship, you do need to have common interests etc. Intelligence and charisma are of course both very attractive traits but there does need to be physical chemistry too.

Think there always has to be some physical attraction.

Referencing back to the thread of the guy who had a lovely girlfriend but who he was not physically or sexually attracted to at all. Awkward..

As the above poster has said, Stevie Wonder can't see his wife- being blind- and therefore that conclusively proves that physical attraction can play no part in one's attraction to an individual. I suppose equally, there may also be some normal-sighted people who turn a blind eye to physical attraction.
