good looks is by far one of the best assets you can have . . . for first impressions, after that your looks needs to be backed up by a nice personality, other whys you won't get anywhere
there amount of times I've seen an attractive person, got to know them, and then I've gone off of them because of their attitude to life.
i think in the end, a nice personaly and a great sense of humour is the best asset, the only problem is it's harder to make that first impression
