    Which one do you prefer? Someone that has an excellent personality, but they lack beauty on the outside. Or someone that has beauty, but lack a good personality.

      why not both?

      beauty fades yes, but people's personalities can suffer as well, depending on their circumstances. and i have seen plenty of older women, all gorgeous, who are still beautiful. Christie Brinkley, Goldie Hawn, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kim Bassinger - it's like a model home or a fine luxury car, even with age they still retain their beauty and charm. a lot of that beauty comes from their personality too. in fact you can't have one without the other. i think it's an urban legend that you can't be both.

        Because it's not always the case that we can have both.

      Is it wrong to prefer both? 

      I mean, I think my husband is incredibly sexy, with a great personality.  Other women think so too.  He was a 48 yr old playboy bachelor when we met.  He's now 52, settled and still has a great fun personality, with a healthy sexy body. 

      So is it bad to want both?

    Personality first. Outward beauty is subjective.

    you could be the most beutiful girl in the world but have the worst ever personality. It clearly has to be personality; cuz looks fade; it's who you are on the inside that really matters! And any guy who just goes out with a girl just cuz she's pretty isn't worth going out with. xxx

      I agree. Beauty is only skin deep, but your personality is what counts!

        We all agree, but the rest of the world doesn't seem to! lol
        I make friends on-line very easily, but out on the town? Not so much.

        A wise and trusted man told me (just this week) that no, I'm not a ravaging beauty. However, luckily, I don't have to date myself! lol I was laughing hard, but at the same time, it made me feel like I should go out and try again...

        It takes a TON of maintenance to keep this mug looking as fine as it does. I'm going to make a fresh pot of coffee right now smile

      I "second" this. Totally agree, but the outer beaty does get the attention first sad

      I am still say I want to have personality, if I have to make a choice. Too dependent on beauty will make you be sad in later years when gravity set in. smile

    When I see a guy and he is cute, hott, sexy whatever and then I talk to him and he's a moron, tool, douchebag, ass, boring whatever it kills it. Immediately. So while looks may be the initial attraction factor, personality is what makes you stay.

      Thanks, Colebabie, for framing this in way that doesn't include 'women this and that,' from a female perspective looking at male attractiveness, and for making sense.

    Beauty is in the personality - comes out in everything you do as much as how you act or behave or take care of yourself - I am confused on the difference.

      you cant see personality from across the bar. but looks eventualy will fade.

      Implicit Cogitoposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      personality is a set of characteristics that tend to describe how you act.  it's not something with a "good" or "bad" value, it only summarizes differences between people.

      beauty seems to be how people describe experiences that give them a sense of awe, admiration, power, or aesthetic pleasure.  it's not something that people "have" or don't have, because 1)you can't force other people to experience beauty, and 2) beauty is abstract, not concrete.

    Personality by far. Beauty fades but a wonderful personality is, to coin a phrase "priceless".

    Peronality first outward beauty second, you can be beautiful on the outside but unattractive on the outside. Beauty fades but personality lasts a lifetime. smile
