    Of course I'd be friends with them, who wouldn't?

    Having said that, I'd describe myself as ugly, so it'd be a bit unfair for me to judge people on looks as I have none to speak of.
    Ditto, im the same.

    I don't think I'd stop being friends with someone because of the way they look.

    That being said, and being painfully honest here, I do enjoy being around pretty people much more than being around ugly people. Perhaps I'm shallow but I find it much easier to get along with, and have fun with, pretty people. Not to say I don't have ugly friends, I am just more likely to like those that are above average, as they tend to be more outgoing and have cooler friends/connections/hobbies.

    Of course all my male friends need to have long blonde hair and a 6 pack...

    Come on who picks friends by appearance alone, someone who places such emphasis on appearance isn't worth knowing.

    That is pretty weird but I like that you're honest. I don't care whether a person is pretty or ugly, what counts is what they make out of it. I can't stand people who just sit there and think "ooh I'm so ugly, nobody likes me, you have so many advantages just because you're so pretty"... I mean, who cares? grrrrrrr...

    Thanks

    It's exactly those people I don't like. One of my five best friends is quite ugly I'm told, but he takes very good care of himself and is very social, goes out with the rest of us and has a very pretty girlfriend, so there you go. I just don't like the way ugly people can be self-conscious. There's also the pragmatic view as I mentioned, pretty people are likely to have more interesting connections/hobbies etc.

    Assuming the majority here at heterosexual; if you're not, then people of the opposite sex.

    What if someone who has a personality that you adore, but has an ugly figure that is profoundly unappealing to you in that sense, would like to be a friend of yours; or, more appropriately, a close friend of yours.

    Would you form that friendship or would you slowly dismiss them?
    Why would their profoundly unappealing figure affect you in the slightest if you aren't interested in their sex in a sexual sense? I.e. if you are male, why should you not make friends with a fat guy, when you're not interested in sexual relations with men?

    I was going to reply to this with a joke, but man, you sound like a ******* idiot.

    He was completely right though. It would be harder to be friends with someone that's ugly from the opposite sex who you might actually get attracted to. I'm not like that though, good personality = good friends.

    Hey there TSR.

    I've begun to talk to a boy recently who goes to an average comprehensive, and describes himself as 'apparently a genius'. He's pretty ******* ugly though. So what if someone who has a personality that you adore, but has an ugly figure that is profoundly unappealing to you in that sense, would like to be a friend of yours; or, more appropriately, a close friend of yours.

    Would you form that friendship or would you slowly dismiss them?

    Friendship has no basis in one's physical appearance.

    Stupid question, to be honest.

    You adore my personality?
