    What tends to attract you more to someone the physical beauty or the inner beauty?

    I am interested to hear if a person looked great but had a rotten personality would you still stay with that person solely because of their looks?  On the otherhand do you see someone who may be plain looking as beautiful in your eyes because they have such a wonderful personality?

    I would go for the right personality and inner beauty more then the good looks.  Someone can be good looking, but because of a lack of "inner beauty" can treat you and others wrongly.  It would make you and others upset and unhappy.  I happen to have found a guy with an inner beauty and he is very handsome as well!

    It is a combination of both. Typically I am partial to philosophy or psychology students who have a good mind. Not many of them are pretty. But for a partner, I have to have a combination.

    I wish to have both the qualities in my partner. if given a choice between the two, I would go for inner beauty rather than good looks. After all, Looks Are Deceptive..Hence, a person will not remain beautiful the whole life....
    So, it's the inner beauty that matters the most.

    Hi, Pamela-anne:

    To answer your question, yes, I have dated some "Plain Janes" and fell for a couple of them.

    The eyes are a strange invention: At first the eyes do not pick up the hidden treasure inside the vessel, but given time, some "Plain Janes" begin to look so appealing and beautiful, a man can get lost in love and never find his way back.

    Conversely, I have also dated outwardly beautiful women with incredible physiques. In fact, I married one. But, I have found that many beautiful women have narcissistic tendencies and tend to be high-maintenance. Anyone who is stuck on themselves loses me as a potential suitor.

    So, yes, I would drop a vitriolic she-devil in a heartbeat, and I do not care what her physical state-of-affairs was. Indeed. If a woman has the personality of a southern pacific rattlesnake, she would take on that appearnce to me.

    This is to say that I typically see things for what they really are, so a "Plain Jane" with a beautiful personality and other pleasing traits, could end up looking like my dream girl, whereas a physically stunning woman could end up looking somewhat unappealing should she harbor a malicious spirit.

    As they say, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

    Looks are what make you interested at first, because something attractive about them has caught your attention, but after that it's all about the inner beauty and personality. It's like having the amazing house of your dreams, but there's just nothing inside and the lights are off. You just can't live there.

    Because I am very shallow and was born and raised in Hollywood, I tend to be attracted to women I consider to be physically beautiful.

    Now, I know that what I am about to write is considered to be "sexist" in this day and age but I cannot resist --

    I have never fallen for a woman because of her mind but I sure have flipped for a lot of them because of their bodies.
