    Hi, I was just wondering whether girls cared more about a guy's personality or his looks for bf material?

    Most definitely personality. Obviously looks are a bonus and might be what attracts me in the first place, but theyd have to have a great personality otherwise looks doesn't mean anything.

    Personality is a prerequisite

    Attraction is important too

    Personality. Physical attraction kind comes after for me unless they are very physically attractive.

    Boyfriend material = personality. Personally in terms of physical appearance I'm only really concerned about if they're hygienic, clean teeth, clean hair etc. like they take care of themselves.
    I get attracted to someone's personality and if they're like 'gross' (not 'ugly') then I'll be less attracted

    Keep in mind that when people say personality, there's still a minimum threshold of physical attraction needed.

    I think for me it's more the initial attraction first that makes me want to get to know his personality
    And then after it's personality that matters more

    For everyone it has to be a bit of both, but if your personalities are not compatible, you're not going to have a sucessful relationship

    Taking basic care of your appearance is kind of part of personality though

    Personality for sure, although some physical attraction has to be there for a relationship to work out. I'm willing to overlook every flaw expect obesity (no offence I can't help it) if our personalities are incredibly compatible. In fact I usually don't find people physically attractive before getting to know their personalities.

    My personal experience is that girls are almost as shallow as guys. Great looks and you're in, whatever. No doubt, if your in the average looks camp a good personality helps, and particularly if you can make people laugh. But if your not in the attractive set its pretty hard work to land a date.

    So I feel like I'm the only one being honest here, I was genuinely surprised to read everyone's responses haha.
    I was originally going to say both, but when I think about it, I'd never consider going out with an ugly guy who was really nice, and while I also wouldn't if he was good looking but an *******/boring/just not interested in what I was interested in, I'd be more willing to make allowances for criteria that is normally important to me.

    EDIT: ugly to me is probably overweight and doesn't look after appearance, or, uncharismatic AND bad dress sense etc. If he's probably average or slightly below average, I can handle that, if his personality is better.

    Personality for sure. I've been attracted to guys in the past who I didn't particularly find attractive looks wise, but their personality and great sense of humor won me over
