    If she looks after her weight and hygiene, and also has the perfect personality, then her natural features don't matter too much.
    In a sense, one's personality often dictates how they look, so both qualities go hand in hand. You could say both are crucial.

    Personality is a nice thing to say like once but really if you don't help me out I'm not interested.

    Tsr bringing people together as always😂😂
    Indeed :sexface:

    Tbh I think the answers in this thread were fairly predictable; very few people would say entirely one or the other whilst remaining honest.

    I can talk for ages if I want to, but it exhausts me mentally and drains my energy. I just like being quiet. A man of a few, important, words.

    Anyone who says that they ONLY focus on one thing is quite rightly lying.

    Looks vs Personality is not a binary choice, it's not one or the other, it's a divide, a ratio.

    You could be 75% Personality, 25% Looks. etc etc.

    Humans are hard wired to physical attraction, it's been in our DNA for our evolutionary history, it's what maximises reproduction, etc.

    tl;dr: even if you don't claim to care about looks, it's still accounted for, even if it makes a small percentage of your decision, it still exists, that's my point.

    I wasn't joking.

    I'm pretty much the same. I'm pretty exhausted mentally from posting here so consistently recently.

    I wouldn't really be interested in their looks unless I'm attracted to their personality. I would generally be mentally attracted first before I'm truly physically attracted. If someone is obviously hot I might have a crush on them, but I would think I was being a bit dumb and I wouldn't pay much attention to myself. I think it's often the other way round for men, they are really attracted to looks first and that then makes them want to know the person.

    Its a tough one because naturally you go for looks but you want a personality to have an exciting relationship.

    There’s times where I haven’t found someone attractive even if they look pretty good but as I get to know them suddenly I find them super hot and attractive… There’s this girl I thought I’d never like, she just didn’t look that nice and she didn’t give good first impressions, during the year she started looking better (nothing major) but I got to know her and I was shocked at the way I felt about her…

    So it’s definitely a mix, leaning towards personality ofc she still has to look pretty good. Who said you can’t have both though?

    If it were a choice, like if I had to live with someone with either good looks or a good personality I’m tempted to say personality… I wouldn’t shy from saying no if she was a complete b****. I wouldn’t waste my time.

    Nice man, and really?😂 For me this problem is just irl. Online it's fine cause I don't have to talk verbally, which is the thing that drains me.

    It takes brain power to come up with all those "jokes", never mind those world class puns.

    Come to think of it I'm probably tired because I go to sleep at like 2:30. 😂

    Yeah some have both but most are not that lucky😂😂 usually the ones with both are not extremly attractive or not extremly fun, more like average in both ygm. Where as very attractive people tnd to be more boring because they didn't have to develop a personality over the years(for obvious reasons) amd the less good looking people tend to be funny to make up for their lack of looks. I know it's a complete generalisation but so far I found it to be accurate with most people I met.
