Some people on UG have pretty unjust views on this, and I just wanted to see the statistics.

Personally I would date anyone, as long as they were a good person and we were good friends. I dont give a shit what they look like.

wait for the poll, please

I'm not gonna wait for your poll cuz I'm a rebel

K-edit: I voted "within limits", because I've got a thing against really skinny/fat people.

I want a girl with a playful, smart personality and that's what matters the most. And if she looks like mistress_ibanez, that's just a bonus

It does. It's what initially attracts someone in the first place.

Im sure you wouldnt date brain pepper's female counter part, even if she was like mother theresa. There are limitations to things. Like, I would never date a fat chick simply because thats like, the biggest turn off for me. Looks do matter, but they dont have to be drop dead amazing for me to like them, but can't be really bad...

I'm not going to date a girl who LITERALLY looks like a velocoraptor (sp?). But I don't place big emphasis on looks.

People hate to admit it, but most, if not all relationships are owed to physical attraction. You can't have that kind of a relationship with someone if you aren't attracted to them. So yes, beauty does matter. Your own interpretation of beauty anyway, no-one else's.

im not going to date someone that would make me either scream because of the horror or vomit because she is fugly.

Your stupid poll meant I clicked yes because I was answering the thread title rather than the poll title.

And yes beauty matters. I wouldn't date someone who I thought was ugly. That would be stupid. I'd only date someone I find attractive.

Girl (Ned/chav) annoying me on the bus.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

Exactly.

You aren't likely to discover the personality of someone for romantic ends unless their appearance attracts you.

You're not looking for a serious relationship or marriage because of looks, but that's what it will normally start with.

I voted no, because I'm honest. I'm not going to say that I'd date someone I wasn't physically attracted to, because if it were true I'd be doing it. That being said, I wouldn't date someone with an awful personality either. I have to fall in love with everything about someone to fall in love at all.

Yes, but looks can blind. If you're shallow like me. And you're sick of getting yelled at by your Dad...Why won't you love me Daddy? My girlfriends aren't that ugly.

Beauty and Pretty are different things.

Beauty in my personal opinion is only personality-wise.

pretty is what you see.

put it this way. im ugly as sin. i fell down the ugly tree and hit every branch, and then landed on a shovel. and i never find love, girlfriends or have the occasional fling. NEVER. so yes, i think beauty may well matter.

Oh and I did'nt Give my answer

I would not date someone who did not have a degree of Beauty(personality wise)

I would have no problem dating any type of girl except thos that are over weight AND Complail WHILE doing nothing about it.

My ex wasnt a good looker. I only went out with her because i've known her for years (She's my best mates sister) and (at the time) liked the same stuff. Then she went emo and we split when she went physco.

well ya certainly shouldn't continue to date someone you find unattractive.

if you've gotten to know them, and that hasn't shaped the way you look at them, in a powerful positive way, there's no hope.

that doesn't mean you shouldn't start, though.

I voted within limits. Inner beauty is a lot more important. I couldn't go out with an attractive jerk.

Yes.. but when you first meet someone, what you see is what attracts you too them. I could see myself going out with someone who wasn't all that good looking that I'd been friends with for ages.. because looks fade either way. When you get to know someone, you stop seeing what they look like. Whether someone's good looking or not, I think you kinda stop seeing it eventually, unless you go looking for it.
But if you're attracted to someones mind and repulsed by their looks you can be pretty much guaranteed that they'd rather not be with someone who looks at them that way.
I wouldn't want to go out with someone who found me "visually displeasing"

Its a little bit of both..The personality is what really matters, but I always like the girl to look decent. Without a good personality Im not even gunna date them tho..Ive dated a girl just bc of her looks..and she was the most annoying bitch I have ever met haha. So, its a little bit of both for me....

Someone you'd like to date would be both mentally and physically attractive. You wouldn't date someone who was hot but had a really shitty personality, and you wouldn't date someone who you could talk easily with but made you throw up a little.
#37
For me it matters a lot but I guess if I liked everything else about him/her then looks would not be that important. I try not to be vain and base my decisions on looks but I don't think I'd be able to be sexual attracted to someone if they were repulsive, no matter how cool they were. If that were the case I'd just became good friends with them.

I'm attracted to plenty of people who I would say aren't exactly 'glamourous'. But beauty always comes first to me, but then again it depends if I really know that person at all.
#39
With in limits; consider both outer and inner "beauty," with an emphasis on inner in my case, though dating a hot girl doesn't hurt anything.

I don't understand how someone could go out with someone that makes them go "ew".
