Default Appearance: How important is it to you? (Be honest)

How important is someones appearance when you are dating? Be honest.

It is, a lot. I do not really look that deep into physical attractiveness, but if I can tell a girl hasn't washed, brushed her teeth, or is otherwise neglecting her personal hygiene, it is an instant "NO!" for me. Also I find wearing too revealig clothing for both sexes distasteful. Like I don't want to see chick's tits staring at me, wauting to pop out at the first bump, nor be able to count how much chest hairs a guy has when riding my bus to uni. Also what is the point of wearing pants if I can see your ass crack?
Also I find most obvious facial enhancements off-putting. I mean, if it looks natural, I probably won't notice, nor care, but if a girl's face screams "BOTOX, NOSE JOB, ENLARGED LIPS!", just... No.
Also what someone wears can give me an idea of their interests and to make a rough assesment of their personality.
And with all the social media, you can pretty easily guess how someone wants to be seen and to present him or herself to the world.

Not a lot but to some degree it matters.
Personal preferences i think. I just cant stand people using make up excessively. I also greatly dislike tattoos on any gender what so ever. Also I have this thing for mestizo girls and their light brown skin I like it alot. And currently I am seriously in relationship with one.

It kinda does matter too me. They don’t have to be a model but I do physically have to be attracted to them. Personally, I’m into girls that are dark haired (tanned is nice but not crucial) and shorter than me. Good hygiene as well as being relatively fit is essential. I’m not big on fake tan/eyelashes, tattoos, lots of piercings and excessive make-up.

There are lotta of things that go into why i am attracted to someone. If I was honest I will say important, at least a bit, but not MOST important. But like others have said, hygiene and taking care of themself is a must!

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Oh, pleeeassse. InternetTeen and Stronk are about the only completely honest ones. This thing about hygiene is a red herring.
It's ok to admit that looks count. Interestingly, the only two who are straight forward in their answers are guys.

Look at it this way: if you're one of those who claims looks don't count as long as they have good hygiene, look at your partner (bf or gf). Are they about as good looking as you, or much less good looking, but have good hygiene? I'll bet it's the former. If looks didn't count, you'd see couples where one was very attractive and the other was not at all. But that usually doesn't happen.

It may be considered shallow, but let's be honest here.

Personality and character, as well as behavior, are more important to me than appearance. I'm not saying appearance doesn't matter, but it's not at the top of my list.

Appearance definitely matters. Even if I like someone’s personality, if I’m not physically attracted to them then it’s kind of eh with pursuing romantic/sexual relationship with them. It’s not the most important thing like you don’t need to be Americans next top model, but still

I expected these types of answers. Appearance definitely plays a huge part for some people, even if they don’t admit it. You can say that personality matters the most, and maybe it does, but looks are a close second.

The looks have to be there, for sure, can't be romantically involved with someone who doesn't turn me on remotely. However, what's hot or not depends on the eye that sees.

I would say it's the other way around: looks first, then personality.

Say you're at a party and don't know people. You'd be aware of their looks long before you're aware of their personality.

That's not to say you can't fall in love with someone you get to know, who you didn't initially find attractive. That happened with me, but we got to know each other through work. Neither of us would have shown an interest in the other based on looks.

Never dated so cant say how it is in reality.
I am going to need to feel relaxed and confident with someone to stand any chance of asking them out so personality is a huge part....but got to like the way they look too. Thats not the same as being a super model or just eying up their body all the time though.

To start of with appearance is gonna be kinda important, like others have said if there were a load of guys you're gonna notice and like the good looking one. But after that once you start to get to know there personality that can kinda change, if that good looking guys a complete d*** I start to think hes not that good looking any more, but maybe he had a really sweet nice friend who I did start talking to, then maybe i start to think hes actually really good looking

So i guess both appearance and personality are important, but if someone has a good balance of both they're gonna be someone I'd want to date. If there really bad in one of those area, not sure how great they are in the other, they probably aren't gonna be my date

Looks are the first thing we see in a person. Personality definitely helps after the fact. You can’t date someone who you find super attractive but share no similar interests. Looks are good to start with because you might not think to strike up a conversation if you don’t personally find them attractive. However, in order to keep it going the personality has to be there, regardless of what someone looks like.

I agree with most people here. I do not need the best looking girl of my school, but she has to look decent. If she looks good, it sure is an advantage.
But personality would also be very important, I could not go with someone who has completely different thinking, habits, opinions, manners, tastes and way of life. It is impossible.
