I think for almost everyone looks matter most when they first meet someone, before they're comfortable with them. For the long-term well-being of a relationship, I think it's also important. Many people won't admit it, but it's true.

I don't expect someone to look fantastic or anything, but basic grooming plus a certain degree of attractiveness is a must if I'm being honest. I wish humans were more inclined to care about personality, but meeting a certain minimum of attractiveness matters a lot in relationships. That being said, obviously personality is the most important thing in the long term. Meeting a bare minimum of attractiveness is not that difficult in most cases, I think, especially for women (because it's socially acceptable for them to use makeup, men have to actively work out for months to be physically attractive whereas women, barring certain eating habits, usually just naturally develop attractive features, etc.)

In all honesty, pretty unimportant. I fall for personality. I usually tend to find physical beauty in places I wouldn't otherwise look when I've fallen for someone. I'll notice little things about them that just melt my heart.

Sappy, I know

Not that important as long as you are clean and presentable. Personality is so much more important.

I’m the type of person attracted to personality. I’d like to think most people take it into consideration with the looks, but some don’t.

The beauty standards are impossible these days. Especially with instagram and the deception of images. I've gained and lost weight multiple times, around the same people who treated me differently thin vs. overweight. Some were mean about it, and some were not mean but they definitely did not go out of their way to be nice - I'm assuming in fear that I might get the wrong idea.
Its all very hypocritical though. Any flaw can be unattractive - physical, mental, emotional. It so happens that physical body is what you meet first. Personality unfolds but only if you give the person a chance.

*halts conversation abruptly with the realization that I've talked too much*
... anyways... Yes, looks matter. Whole package matters.

very important. It's the first thing you see of somebody so nobody can pretend that it doesn't matter

I think, a beautifull person is a person that looks healthy. So for me the only beauty standards that are available are those which reflects that you take care of your body

Some considerations to that: Everyone is on a path that can't be seen yet. Maybe they are on the path to be thin, fat, unhealthier. Maybe they're on the path to relentless depression, or suicide. Not everyone looks the same despite everything going on inside.
