People say its all about personality and not about looks, but I feel like being attracted to somebody is part of why we like a particular person. What do you think? Do looks come into play when looking for a significant other? Or is it all about personality and it doesn't matter if they are ugly/unattractive?

You are confusing attraction with attractive. I would never date someone I wasn't attracted to. However, I could be attracted to someone that might not be conventionally attractive.

No. And sometimes someone is attractive but you wouldnt date them anyway because youre not attracted to them.

Yup. I'd date a guy I was attracted to, but that doesn't really mean that anyone else would find him attractive, because "beauty in the eye of the beholder" and all that.

Personality is definitely important, yes. But the whole idea that one's personality is all that matters, and that you shouldn't worry about someone's looks is quite silly. Nature intended for our physical appearance to be one of the ways that we attract a mate. After all, when you meet someone for the first time, their physical appearance is what initially captures your attention.

I'm not picky about looks, but a person would nonetheless have to have some physical attribute that makes me desire them. I couldn't be in a relationship with someone that I feel no desire toward.

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose?

But it depends on the person. As clichéd as it sounds, beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. I would not date someone that is not attractive to ME, but is attractive to other people in general.

Well I think looks are very important.I sure wouldn't want to feel like I had to put a bag over their head or visa versa .Yes looks are important if you are truthful.
