Re: Personality not looks

I can appreciate a mans good looks but feel no attraction to pretty men at all.

Ugly men can be so attractive if they have the right personality...

Re: Personality not looks

In an ideal world personality should be the primary attraction, I agree. However, in the real world - you're at a party or in a crowded pub. You see a man/woman across the room - can you possibly say "hm, they're plain and ordinary looking but wow! what a personality!" Nobody does that do they? Obviously you're going to be drawn to someone whose face you find attractive and then, hopefully, you will like their personality.

All men and women find certain types appealing, it's natural. It might be shallow but that's just the way it is. Unfortunately there are thousands of people who for whatever reason are unattractive to the opposite sex. They may be wonderfully witty and kind, sensitive people, but if nobody wants to get to know them they will be lonely. C'est la vie.

Re: Personality not looks

Two famous men I found physically attractive - neither were adored for their looks.

Charles Aznavour & Roy Orbison.

I would have run off & married either one of them.

Re: Personality not looks

What attracted me to my husband was his accent. A fellow Londoner amongst a sea of strange accents!

Yes, I know you have just had your 50th anniversary Tara, but initially that sounded more of a business arrangement if you don't mind me saying.

I believe each one of us will look for different qualities in a prospective partner.
It may be good looks, humour, personality, warmth, kindness - even smell!
We won't ever all agree, simply because different things matter to different people.

There is no right or wrong, it is just a case of what 'turns you on' so to speak.

Good job we don't all like the same, else we'd all be fighting over the same person, and the rest of the world would be lonlely and unloved.

I know.
But like I said above, we all like different things, which is just as well, for the reasons I have just stated.

Re: Personality not looks

Everyone should experience at least once in their lives the heady experience of being in love
