Default Looks, money, and personality

Agree or disagree:

  • Men care about looks and personality in a woman. Men care 50% about how physically attractive a woman is and 50% about how nice she is. Men do not care how much money a woman has.
  • Women care about looks, personality, and money in a man. Women care 33% about how physically attractive a man is, 33% about how nice he is, and 33% about how financially stable he is.

Not exactly rocket science here, but it's good to pin the basics down

Disagree. As a woman, I could care less about how much money he has.
He should be able to support himself and be able to put something away for his retirement. Beyond that, I don't care.

sigh - I know it must be frustrating to not have any real relationship experience, but try not to ruminate on it so much!

Work on yourself so you'll be ready and able to attract the right women, then all this percentage crap won't matter to you at all

Too bad it doesn't work like that IRL.

BTW, what website did you "copy and paste" this from?

I disagree with anything or anyone who pins anything down to percentages unless it is backed by some actual data.

"Personality" (manners, respect, loyalty, social acceptability and the like) and "money" (financial security) come first, then looks, for me. No percentages, just in the order of importance. The first two go hand in hand.

I won't speak for men, but I know plenty who don't care about looks.

I don't know where you get 50% nice and 50% personality. that's definitely B.S. It's more like 85% looks and 15% personality.

The 2nd part is definitely not true either. Based on your logic a woman would take any ol' ugly man as long as he has money. Yea right.

It is impossible to say because each person is different. There are men and women who put looks above all else. There are men and women who put money above all else. There are men and women that put personality before all else. There are men and women that put green cards above all else. It's silly to try to pigeon hole men and women. It all comes down to each individual.

I think it's 60% looks and 40% personality.

I think this is true for women age 20-35-ish. Younger and older than that, women don't care so much about money.

You do know that men and women are individuals? No? Well we are.

There are different dynamics for sexes for what they desire in in a companion. I disagree with your chart unless if its backed by the pew center, or if your data is backed by survey or experimental observation.
