Um, what do you call that, oh yeah. "Love at first sight" or rather "lust at first sight."

You see, it only takes 2 minutes to impress anyone. And looks can do that in that short of time. Personality, however, would take weeks or even months.

A crossed-eye or a midget or acne guy would definitely be a turn off (not unless the girl isn't shallow)

BUT in the long run, people cannot and would not stand for a good looking person with a bad attitude. They'd rather live their lives with a plain person with a big heart.

But you said you're not ugly, just not model material. So you'll be fine. Besides, some people may find others attractive and some may not.

I think that they are equal.... I don't like a really ugly guy... But I also wouldn't want a guy that has a sucky personality... So it just all depends on the guy.. (all around)

Personality is way more important, but looks have to be there for attraction.

Well personally I think personality is more important than looks, looks go away years down the line. If some guy was hott as hell but was a total *** then I wouldn't waste my time.

If the personal is there and it is great then it should make up for the looks but just cuz you may be hot doesnt mean you can control everyone and think your a big hot shot cuz you aint.. no matter what.. the perfect guy would be a personality to die for and knows how to treat a lady..
I wish I knew what to say..To be the one to take your breath away.

Everybody has his/her own definition of handsome/pretty/beautiful/cute/hot/whatever...I hope you see my point.

It just depends on the girl. The first thing most girls notice is looks, but if the guy has a rotten personality, that is a total turnoff and most girls would not waste their time. I def think that personality is more important, what someone lacks in looks, it'll make up for in personality. Besides, looks are going to be lost when you get older...

Me and my guy friend were talking about this just the other day, and we agreed that anyone who says that looks don't matter is definitely kidding themselves. I mean, what attracts you to a person in the first place? Their looks right? I guess maybe if you've known a person for a long time then you start liking them for their personality, then that's an exception. But anyways, yes, looks do matter. I'm not shallow, it's not like I only go out with hot guys. But he can't be really ugly either.

Honestly, looks is the first thing you notice, but it's their personality that defines their being. Being attractive to someone isn't based on just looks alone, there are many characteristics that are considered attractive...
