    "Love at first sight."  Physical relationship attracts physically.  It is without a doubt that the first instinct is the look.  If the look does not appeal to the person,chances are that the person would not think about dating the other person.

A pretty package on the outside doesn't guarantee a nice person. Someone you can talk to is critically important for a long term relationship.

    In the words of Judge Judy, "Beauty fades, dumb is forever."  I heard my male friends say, "I thought she was hot until she opened her mouth."

    Looks are not so much important for relationship.  Only thing is that the person should be trustworthy and committed.

    Yes. Good looks in the subjective taste and judgment of the beholder.
