    Personally, I rather be happy. If looking good or being rich can make me happy, I will go for it otherwise, I still prefer to be happy as I am now.

    I'd rather be rich because then I could buy good looks!  Although I'm not sure I would excercise that right.

    If you follow the rich and famous be it footballers or film stars or royalty you will then see that money does buy literally anything that takes your fancy and an attractive spouse! Take Mick Jagger for instance, he always had a beauty on his arm and his looks are nothing to write home about!  Making a choice on those principles I would rather be 'Rich'. It's true that money doesn't always buy happiness but it easier to be happy without financial worries..

    I've always wished that I had been born rich, but unfortunately I've had to settle for being startlingly handsome. Sigh.

    Rich! When you are rich, you will attract the right people, irrespective of how you look!

    I would rather be rich.  Being unattractive probably wouldn't be such a burden if I had money.  Maybe some of the money can go towards making me more attractive!

    I know this is not the answer to your question. What I would want MOST out of life is Piece of mind. No matter how good looking you are or how much money you have is irrelevant if you are not happy. Piece of mind is Priceless.

      You would think - but I know some extremely good looking people and it's not working for them... LOL

    No actually a refreshing answer. We were in a meetint he other day and this topic came up and it was amazing to hear all the replies. So I thought it would be good to hear some of the fellow Hubbers..

      It's a natural human instinct to protect oneself and in this modern world monetary wealth is a primary tool!   Good looks are primarily for the benefit of the opposite sex!.

    Being rich even if you  aren't good looking can give you whatever you want in life.Just look at some of the ugly celebs and the wags they have are so hot.Looks don't guarantee anything.

    Rich! Most people ignore me anyways so I won't have to worry about looks.

    See if I said rich then I could pay to be good looking. Most people would think that being rich is good looking in a way. So I would be Rich.

    Obviously, everyone wants both.  That is a difficult question.  Now that I am getting older, though, I would opt for rich.

    Rich!  Attractiveness can only get one so far- there are plenty of attractive people who are not wealthy and plenty of wealthy people who are not attractive.  Personally, I'd prefer to have lots of money and a large mansion.

    Rich. Being good looking is subjective. Being rich isn't.

    Of the two I'd pick rich as money can buy a facelift smile

    Rich, because, if you have enough money in this world looks become obsolete....

    Good looking.  Money cant bring happiness but at least being confident can smile

    Rich, because with all that money and some plastic surgeries I can look and have a body like a celebrity.  |:+))

    In reality, I would still want to be rich. because being able to help others and start my charity would bring me more wealth than any one person could imagine.

    Awesome question with some incredible answers.
