When you meet new people do you dislike people no matter how nice and cool they are because of appearance or the sound of their voice?

For example,


if you met a lovely girl who'd be a great friend and is pretty out-going but her voice gets on your last nerve, would you look for another fish to catch


or


there's a very funny, gentle, trust-worthy and confident guy but he's way obese and sweats too much, would you threaten him with the gym or ditch him?



Personally, for me it's personality over all matter but I do know some people choose beauty over it. Especially for celebrities.

Some people "hate" (do people even know what it means when they spurt it like the Nile river) celebrities because they have a certain look on their face, or their voice isn't like the one they fantasise about all day. Is it the same for the love partner or friends you may get in the future?



Also, when you hear gossip or past life story about them that isn't very positive would you rule them out of your friends book without trying to trial the friendship?

My share of the cake:

So basically this is a "Do you judge a book by its cover" thread.

And uh, no I guess I don't.

i'm personality over looks too.
i do not deny that i'm nt 100% this way.
i'm imperfect, so i do go for looks sometimes, like 10% looks?
90% personality. yupps.

I first judge by what's outside, then proceed to get to know them more before making a final decision.
Rumors haven't stopped me from being friends with someone. For example, I've heard things about how mean, bitchy, snobby and self centered this girl is and, to be honest, I was turned off by what my friends said. Ironically, this summer, I met her and we ended up sitting next to each other all throughout health class. I agree with what my friends said that she's mean and perhaps bitchy but, overall, she's pretty nice and we've become friends.

The type of friends I like are fun (very important), honest (very important also), not too stupid, not too serious about anything, a good person deep down (don't care if they're a complete bitch on the outside), not sappy (I hate corny things/people), and realistic.
That's only for friends. I'm pickier when it comes to potential boyfriends.

I've always thought that only personality mattered to me because that what I hold in the highest... but now thinking about all my friends are pretty good looking. I'm not sure if it was done purposely because I didn't noticed or think about it until this thread :\

I hate the "you can't judge a book by it's cover" phrase. When it's a person, you're always looking at them. You don't have to constantly look at the cover. You're also not having sex with a book.
