I Think That Personality Is More Important Than Good Looks

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 17,718 People

    Truthfully I do believe

    that looks are not everything considering a person can be beautiful, but that does not mean they are a good person. Personality can go a long ways with some people. People with an amazing personality are the type one should be around because they can be great fun to be friends...

    It always has been, it always will.

    My last girlfriend, my friends didn't agree with me that she was beautiful. That's because they were looking at the outside (in my opinion, she was absolutely gorgeous), but because i saw the inside, she was even more beautiful to me.

    Take any journey for about an hour into a city

    A man with a wonderful personality will get you

    through the many hardships of life. However, a man with good looks will only get you through boring nights. It serves no purpose to be handsome with a dark personality.

    It is easy to fall in love by beauty face,

    but in the end, u have to deal with character, not the beauty.. The good book cannot be judged by its cover

    Heck Yes...this Coming From a Person Lacking Good Looks :)

    A person is only as beautiful

    as their heart and soul. I've seen plain people radiate such beauty when they smile and share their heart. And seen 'beautiful' people turn so ugly with a sneer or snide remark.

    Our society is so mess up today,

    that everyone decides that its would be great to say something about someone's look. I'm not wishing bad, but only if we were blind, than maybe we could focus on personalities instead of someone's race, clothes, etc.

    Looks fade-dumb is forever.

    The looks of person is merely a shell that carries their body. Over the years I have met ppl who are beautiful on the inside. But their insecurity and immaturity made them ugly. Don't judge a book by its cover. Judge it by the content.

    Looks are important, to attract someone.

    Personality is what that person falls in love with. You don't love someone for the way they look, but for who they are.
