Do looks matter?

Looks matter?

If you’re a woman, you know that looks matter. You’ve seen the ads on TV and in magazines: “You’re going to look better than sexiest woman alive!” or “The perfect man is out there waiting for you!” But what if we told you that these same people are also saying that men fall in love with women because of their personality? Would things be any different? The answer is yes — but not in the way you might think! In fact, studies show both personality and looks are important factors when it comes to finding love (and keeping it).

Studies show that men and women fall in love with others for both internal (personality) and external (looks) reasons.

While it’s often thought that looks are more important to men than women, studies show that looks are just as important to both genders.

Men are more likely to be attracted to a woman’s physical appearance. Women tend to be more attracted by men’s personalities and inner qualities.

These findings have been backed up by several other studies which show that people fall in love with others for both internal (personality) and external (looks) reasons.

In fact, psychological reasons are more important for women than physical ones.

In fact, psychological reasons are more important for women than physical ones. A study conducted by the University of Glasgow showed that women were more likely to be attracted to a man’s personality than his looks. Men were more likely to find a woman attractive because she had good genes or was physically fit. This is why we often hear about how ugly men can get laid—but it doesn’t happen very often!

The same goes for personality.

It’s no secret that looks and personality are both important for success in a relationship. But do you know how much more important each of those things are for women than men?

If you’re a female, chances are that your physical appearance isn’t as important to you as it is for guys. This is because women tend to be judged more harshly by society than men. The same goes for personality: while it’s true that some people find their significant other attractive based on their looks alone (and vice versa. There’s also nothing wrong with falling in love with someone who doesn’t have the ideal body type or has a huge ego. What matters most is whether or not they make you happy!

What’s more important — looks or personality?

But what about looks? Is it true that good-looking people get more attention and better jobs. While ugly ones are left out in the cold?

The answer is no. It’s not just that you can’t judge a book by its cover — which is true. But also because looks don’t matter as much as personality. Even if someone has great physical features and an attractive face. They won’t necessarily be able to impress others with their personality if it doesn’t match theirs (and vice versa).

In other words: Your looks may help you get hired for positions that require physical labor like construction work or police work. However, those same physical features won’t necessarily make you stand out among your coworkers who are less attractive than yourself. On top of this, there’s also another important factor: When dealing with emotions like love and attraction, appearance matters less than personality.

Focus on personality and looks as both are important for success in a relationship.

You may be wondering what the difference is between looks and personality, or even how they can be mutually exclusive. The answer: they’re not! In fact, they’re both very important in a relationship.

Personality is more important than looks for long-term relationships because it’s what determines how people treat each other over time. Your partner will have certain expectations of you based on their own personality type. And those expectations will influence how much effort they put into the relationship (and vice versa). For example, if your partner expects honesty from you but doesn’t value honesty themselves. Then this could lead to conflict down the line when those expectations aren’t met. Which would be difficult for both parties involved!

On the flip side though; if one person values honesty while another doesn’t care at all about being truthful then these two individuals might not have much common ground anyway. So sticking together becomes harder because communication gets stuck somewhere along its journey toward understanding. Rather than connecting as friends do naturally under normal circumstances.”


I think we can all agree that looks matter, but it’s clear that personality is more important for long-term relationships. The same goes for personality: if you have a bad personality, then no amount of good looks will save you! Looks DO matter but they can only carry you so far. I know some stunning people who can’t hold a conversation to save their life. Or know how to do things themselves. What catches someone’s eye the first time you meet them is different for everyone. Just be real with yourself when it comes to what you look for in someone.
