Okay, now be perfectly, 100% honest:

Do you give attractive people more attention by default?

Even if you share no interests, you really don't care about what they have to say, but still listen to whatever they say, want to always be around them and all that stuff.

Of course it's shallow, and people have their different reasons (reason number 1 being you want inside their pants), but I'd like to see how many people actually do this.

Remember, this is based on physical attraction only.
#3
No. Usually I pay more attention to interesting people, but that's not to say I don't notice attractive people. However, if I'm seeing a girl who's very attractive but seems like a snob, it cuts my interest in her severely, and I don't pay her much mind after that.

It's complicated. I wouldn't give attention to someone just because they are attractive. I mean, I need to get something back. But it's really the same with everyone. If they're not interesting, why would I want to be around them?

That said, if there are two equally uninteresting people and one is physically attractive, I'd take the attractive one.

I don't really focus too much on people's outter beauty. To me, i'd rather associate with people based on their personalities. NOW, if they're attractive AND have a great personality- then hahah... i may tend to linger around them.

Yes, I get more attention.

OT: Yes, I do. Not gonna hide it.

EDIT:
Like other people said though, if they're a snob, then no. They have to be nice.

And I know I'm shallow. It's a flaw.

I only really listen to people I actually want to talk to. But then again I only want to talk to them for reason 1, unless they're a guy.

Luckily, all the nice girls I know are smart so I don´t need reason number one (though, wouldn't mind it) but sometimes I meet this sick blond Scandinavian/Russian girls and 99/100 I dislike them from the first second because they are usually not very smart.

Honestly.

And I do not notice whether a boy is handsome or not, probably because I am too self-centered.

Ha-ha.

There arent many situations today where you are forced to interact with someone for an amount of time whereupon their personality outshines their attractiveness/immediate impression. At parties or in alot of social situations, a shallow approach is preferable because you just dont have the time to get to know someone enough. As much as I hate it, I tend to go:
Ugly. Moving on.
Good looking. Boring during first ten seconds of interaction. Moving on.
Good looking. Engaging. Talking to you now.

I think there is a "spark" that needs to happen to make people connect, or it just wont happen. However, in other situations, like at work or uni or any place you are "forced" to interact with people, looks are almost completely ignored. It balances out.
...In my opinion.
#15
I sometimes work the tills at work. If there is someone attractive in the queue, I always hope I get to serve them

Of course I know I am doing this, and I don't care. For relationships etc., personality is of way more importance, but there's nothing wrong with flirting with pretty girls to make work that bit more bearable
#16
Most of the time, their attractiveness gets me interested, but upon realizing they're thick as concrete, they lose my attention.
#17
Nah I don't do this unless I know the person and they have a nice personality as well. I wouldn't pay more attention to a more attractive person unless they got my attention by starting up conversation or what not.
#18
Yep, I do. I don't see any problem with that either.

Kind of, i'll certainly notice when an attractive person walks in a room, and seem to get less annoyed if they're rude to me, but I don't think i'd hang on someones every word because they were attractive, it's never happened before anyway, I usually find pretty girls to be quite annoying and will generally go for the more interesting person.

Yes, but there's only so much I can tolerate people being boring. Even the world's hottest person can only hold my attention so long if they're talking about dirt.

Honestly, if a person is attractive but uninteresting, I'll just pretend I'm paying attention to her.

I absolutely give them more attention, if the girl's not a bitch to me.

edit: I don't really feel any remorse for being shallow. Or remorse for much at all. It's just the way I am.

Yes, I voted the joke option.

On a more serious note, I don't base my attention span solely on attractiveness, but it's a plus I guess.

I don't consider myself very attractive, but when I speak, people turn their heads to look.

Maybe it's my charismatic and deep voice....

Probably. But as I'm a horrible, horrible person, attractive poeple don't talk to me. So I don't really know.
#29
3 years of my life thrown down the toilet in a pathetic attempt to get a girl I was in love with to like me. She was into me enough to hang out and be close friends.. But she was pretty and I weigh twice as much as her. I'm not rich so that could never have worked.

I realized after we stopped talking (cos I decided to openly make fun of her boyfriend) that I pretty much threw away my friends because I spent all my possible time with her. Shit sux, bro.
#30
I do so for the first few days. But if their personality is unattractive, I don't feel the need to be with them anymore, unless I'm very horny.

Well first off I voted purple spunky hippo out of some questionable sense of obligation. But I'd say I do this for the most part. Mainly though just the whole 'wanting to be around them' bit. As far as wanting to always talk to them and hear what they say and that kind of thing, not so much. The reason I like being around attractive girls is because it's interesting because I automatically try to make them attracted to me. And that includes mostly ignoring them, not talking to them, saying only very good things when I do talk to them, and basicly coming across as confident and secure.

All of that I would never do with an unattractive girl. I actually would talk more and be more friendly to an unattractive girl lol. So I'm on the fence here.
We're only strays.

You think you don't, but when you get right down to it, the reason you're on this earth is to reproduce. And your instinct is to bear the fruit of the most suitable mate. which is based on strength, and looks.

SUMMARY:
You're bullshiting if you say you don't notice or pay attention to looks.

I'm gonna have to go with the hippo on this one.

Attractive people may initially grab my attention, but they won't retain it if they're boring. Besides, I'm just not very good at pretending to be interested when I'm clearly not. I fail @ small talk.

I'm not gonna say I don't pay attention to looks, because that's just not true. I'm just not very good at maintaining a conversation, especially if it's with someone I don't really get along with (because they're boring and stupid, or maybe because they think I'm boring and stupid)

SUMMARY: The repulsive force of disinterest may, and often is, greater than the force of attraction.

Yeah, that's the way shit works I'm afraid.

However, attraction is a fickle business, and tbh there are a lot of chicks that i would consider if it wasn't for what my friends would think of me.

Serious note, Unknowingly, I give attractive people less attention because I'm too damn shy to make eye contact. Then I kick myself later for not doing so.

All of the time, unless I'm drunk and then I'll go too far and give too much attention.
