    personally, if he can make me laugh, hold a serious discussion, aspire to certain goals (and have a plan to achieve said goals), have a certain level of intelligence and likes being sociable, then he's perfect.

    I usually go for looks in girls, rather than personality, call me shallow if you will but im not looking for any serious relationships, I just like hanging around with my mates too much.

    However, its like what that psychologist said, whatever an attractive person says or does will generally be perceived as attractive as well, so attractive people are at an advantage, *******s.

    See, a lot of you girls are saying the same things: that looks aren't all that important. And yet, in my experience, it's usually women in their mid-20's, i.e. women who've already been with pretty-boys and found out that, looks apart, there's not much substance there, that decide to go for those who might not be much outside but plenty inside. Until then... well, for the most part, I have a feeling that most girls would rather live the dream first, before recognising the reality .

    To the OP: you shouldn't be anything other than yourself, for a start. If this girl you like responds to you when you're "being yourself", to quote the cliché, then great - you'll know how to proceed from there. If she doesn't... then, well, you shouldn't beat yourself up, either. It could just be a compatibility issue. Just carry on being patient, I guess!

    I'd say that it's physical attraction and personality all at the same time for me. I've had boyfriends that are not good looking at all but I have been IMMENSELY attracted to them before even speaking to them, I don't know what it is, just some sort of immediate connection, like I know I'd get on with this guy. So it's not their looks but their personality that creates the physical attraction.... don't know if that makes any sense whatsoever but I know what I mean

    Plus I like ambition, a sense of wanting something and actually taking all the steps to get it, kindness, openess, similar sense of humour to me, unending patience with me ridiculousness, and ultimately, he has to absolutely worship the ground I walk on.... thats hot

    Hmm, true. Unless you find a girl that has already had her fair share of *******s and can't be bothered with that sort of lark anymore.

    See, a lot of you girls are complete and utter liars, trying to convince everyone, perhaps yourselves included, that you're not at all shallow.

    Yep, that's what I was thinking! :yep:

    What if she looks like a man though? It's a tough choice between principles and orientation :beard:

    My way was much more diplomatic and less likely to get me negged by every woman who reads that lol.

    But, essentially, I suppose that was my point.

    A slight twist to the OPs question (don't mean to hijack the thread, it's still on topic).
    To the girls that say physical attraction first, and the personality once they get to know them: let's say you have been talking to a guy over the internet, so you have never seen him. You seem to get on great and you have so much common. So you plan to meet up with this guy for a drink or whatever. Would you be disapointed if he didn't turn out to be the tall, handsome man you might have imagined? Would you be put be off by his looks?
    i bet if the guy was 40 odd they'd be abit gutted..... :p:

    I think personality is so much more of an attractive quality than looks.

    Ask for a picture. And not one of those crappy "must take a photo for facebook" pictures, either.

    Problem solved.
