Judging on personality is sometimes really difficult to do, especially if you just met the person.
I try not to go by looks, since I, myself, tend to have really bad days where I just get up and put whatever feels better than what looks nice.
But overall, I try and look by manners. The way they present themselves, and speak to you. That makes my first impression of who you overall are.
Then I go by personality.
Finally looks. Because if your just showing off your body, you don't really care much for anything else, it seems.

I have a whole range of different comments people use on me, from "Oh she's pretty" to "wow, you should really improve yourself more".

In a nutshell...

Personality: Confident and well-mannered. Someone who's not afraid to be himself but not someone who likes to flirt with every girl he sees.
Interests: Must be similar to mine or that person must at least accept my hobbies. Someone who dislikes watching sports as much as I do.
Physical appearance: Don't really care.

It's really in the eye of the beholder how one differentiates between ugly and pretty. Personally, I have not thought about this question because there are too many exceptions to any statement I could make

For me it's both personality and looks.
Personality: She'd have to be smart, and witty. I'm someone who sometimes goes off in my own little world and ends up talking about geeky/nerdy things. I also have a habit (some would say bad habit) of making fun of things and making "smart ass remarks".She would have to be nice (duh). And a bunch of other things that I'm too lazy to type

Looks: For me, personality is just slightly more important; though that not t say that looks aren't important. I'm attracted to fair skinned girls (mostly asian--japanese most of the time-- but also white). I like the hourglass figure but not to the point where it becomes hideous. I think a woman should have a little.........um.........meat on her. Blue eyes are a plus but as long as they're not cross eyed or someother thing like that I'm fine. Has to be shorter then me (I'm pretty short myself at 5'10) and has to have a nice face. Kind of round but not like "o" round. No facial hair ( ). Um yeah, I guess thats it.

I know it sounds unreasonable but I truly believe I'll find someone who will be perfect for me (and meet the above things). A guy can hope can't he?

I like both personality and looks.
Personality: has to be cunning and can pick up on witty references. Make me laugh and blah blah other cheesy stuff.
Looks: Has to look like Johnny Depp or Joseph Gordon-Levitt

It all depends on personal preferences. Some black people are pretty some are ugly. It's the same with whites and asians. (Though I tend to like black girls more than others^^)

I used to think that my appearance used to be the problem, but after reading some posts here and seeing what people are looking for I realize that maybe I'm ugly on the inside as well. I've probably only been scratching the surface while trying to reinvent/renovate myself. (I haven't been trying incredibly hard lately. Used to be absolutely obsessed with it about eight or so years ago.) I guess my flaws are too numerous and run too deep to overcome. At least that's how it feels as I get older. I'm discovering more and more flaws as I try to fix them.

I believe that our personalities are the products of our experiences and our environments as we go through life. I wish mine had a reset button so I could possibly fix all the BS that made me who I am today, because who I am today is obviously not good enough.

I have to say, these are all great politically correct answers, but I'm wondering if entirely honest?? Let's face it, we tend to be attracted to a person's outward appearance when we first encounter them because, well, it's the most obvious first impression. After we get to know someone then we may discover that the person is not who we thought they were - but that comes later.

So, to answer your question directly I would have to say that one of the first things I notice is height...I'm 5'6, which is not particularly tall so if I met a woman who was 6'0 I have to be honest and say that she would be someone I wouldn't pursue a relationship with, Personally, I tend to like petite women, and if you wanted to be specific, petite Asian women. It says it right in my profile so it's not like I'm not being upfront about it.

Is it too much to ask for both?

The personality. Sounds cheesy and corny to say, but in the end that's what matters. Looks fade over time, and the only thing you have is far more deep than just your skin. I always look for the personality and that's what attracts me the most, though of course - as a human being you will take in how someone else looks. But still; it's who you are that makes you special.

All the makeup in the world cannot hide an ugly heart.

This guy is probably as awesome as awesomeness can be. Same opinion here 100%

A lot of people, myself included, tend to identify and focus on their flaws.

What flaws do you dislike/hate the most? Do you have confidence?
Do you believe in the saying that "you see yourself differently than other people see you"?

What things do you consider to be "pretty" or "ugly" on the opposite sex? (e.g pale skin)



Individual features like "pale skin" don't bother me one way or another.
It's about how the girl as a whole looks. Sometimes pale skin works.
Sometimes it doesn't. It all depends on how it all adds up.


That said, If you want me to be honest than I'm not fond of anorexic skeletons or beached whales.
I think girls should have some meat on their bones but they shouldn't look like jabba the hut either.
Being a little chubby though isn't too much of a problem as long as she still looks cute which
again depend on how it all adds up. Sorry if I sound rude but I think it be ruder to lie.

As far as physical attraction goes different strokes for different folks. Especially since recent research suggest that you tend to find people with whom you are more genetically compatible with more attractive. I like what I like and I assume that people also like what they like. If my appearance isn't appealing to someone I quickly remind myself that they're almost seven billion people in the world and chances are that someone somewhere will see me and say, "Lets make genetically balanced babies to take over the world."



However inner beauty is something that can't be as easily compromised. It's not that I mind a person who is a complete douchebag or anything. It's a known fact that there are people in this world incapable of being nice and that's okay. However anyone who puts on airs or has a duplicitous nature isn't someone who I'd take a second look at.
