As much as people say they don't, in my opinion, I think it is quite a huge factor.
Obviously, personality has a huge role too .
What are your opinions?

Looks matter to an extent. You need to be physically attracted to the person. However for me personally, my boyfriend's personality is the most attractive thing about him and the main reason I am with him.

I find sometimes that a persons personality sort of shines through in a way making them more/less attractive and when you get to know/like someone you just sort of end up finding them attractive. It's often not until you split up with that person that you're like whaaaaaat was I thinking!? Physical attraction for flings initial 'get the ball rolling' in some cases, otherwise it doesn't matter too much

Looks matter in a small way in a relationship, you'll discover that your attracted to a person based on their looks at first but as time their personality becomes more attractive.

Looks matter, especially initially, but personality matters far more. For example, the personality of the guy I’m dating wins me over every time. Obviously I find him attractive, but that’s the smallest part of why I’m attracted to him.

I agree - i mean personality is v. important, but i need to have a physical attraction to them as well. both are equally important

You can't force yourself to be physically attracted to people, so I guess looks do matter.
I mean I've never been in a relationship but when I have a crush on people it is usually initiated by their looks, but personality obviously helps.

People who say they don't matter are lying to themselves.

Looks play a part, even if it's a smaller proportion to other attributes like personality or money.

It's not about the looks. They don't matter. It's the personality that counts.

Well obviously, you have to be attracted to someone to want a relationship with them

Yes, of course looks matter.

I suspect people who don't think they matter have never tried to be intimate with someone they are not attracted to.

Ideally you need a combination of both. If someone is attractive but has a nasty personality the attraction will soon fade. But if you don't find the person attractive in the first place, even if they have a nice personality, it's highly unlikely a relationship will come of it.

Relationships are mostly a ludicrous concept. There is ****ing and then there is friendship, sometimes you can combine the two. You cant **** a personality but similarly the fact that you dont want to **** them doesn't necessarily mean you are ideologically opposed to them in toto.
