face is most important to me. great bodies come a dime a dozen, a truly beautiful face is much harder to find.

I'm in the minority. I chose "Beautiful Body and Average Face" for the simple reason that with good makeup and correct application, you can take an average or less than average face and make it very beautiful. You can't do that with a body. A beautiful body will allow you to wear anything you want and not worry about covering up the flaws. As for the men who do not wear make up, look at "Ahhhhnold". He is not very attractive, at all, but had a beautiful body...so the women LOVED him.

Now, I think you should have included "Personality" in the poll because, I think personality would override everything and neither average or less than average face nor body would make a difference. IMO...personality is what truly makes the person.

I disagree. You can alter an average or below average face with makeup and such, but you cannot make it beautiful. Beautiful is beautiful and it cannot be acheived with make up. Makeup usually hides blemishes or evens tones. It does not change a persons shape of face and smile and teeth, etc. And even if makeup could do what would you are implying, what would you do when it rains or in the morning? Some questions to ponder.

As far as the question at hand. I would definately take a beautiful face over a beautiful body. Like most have said, you can workout to change your body. Your face you are just stuck with. Unless of course you have the money for ten plastic surgeries, in which case you will still mostly look more like a freak than beautiful.

Judging by the poll results, perfect face wins by a major landslide. It is not even close.

Perfect body, average face. Makeup is cheaper than a gym membership.

I chose perfect body, average face. Also hopefully it is someone who has always had a perfect body. Weight loss seems like a deception for some because they eventually balloon back and it just seems like a huge trick, you find a decent girl, then boom!

At least with the face you get what there is. No tricks, no expected changes, no struggle to keep the weight down. Also a perfect body looks better when dressed in the current fashion trends.

This is especially a problem for the young. I remember when I was a teen I knew to date the most thinnest girls because I knew those who were already developed would most likely just be quite huge as adults while the thin girls would just turn out to appear average for the most.

As far as older adults you can tell those with better bodies have a huge advantage over those without especially since there are just less people who have taken care of themselves.

Of course there will be exceptions but I am talking about the generalities.

Just Google search for Inez Sainz. Beautiful body but face is just "eh" at best. Beautiful is actually too weak of a word to describe her body. Physically, from the neck down, she is beyond perfection. Pretty much everyone who sees her says she's one of the sexiest women on the planet. But her face really is about a "C" or "C-".

Gravity affects the melons (when they turn 40-45)

A surgery can easily modify the body for good, but no surgery can modify an ugly face. And in the case that a face surgery is successful, your offsprings would still come out ugly if your wife is genetically ugly so I agree with most of you. It is better a woman with a pretty face and average body.
