I Think That Personality Is More Important Than Good Looks

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 17,408 People

    I'm convinced only about 30% of the people on

    earth are "real people", and the rest are fillers. Anyone can look attractive, but only the people with personality make an impact.

    I want to be more than a piece of meat I want

    to be looked at as the intelligent person I am and not the beautiful eyes or my gorgeous body or my delicate face or how my hair is so flawless lol. I want someone to look at me in my eyes and see beyond that and looking at how my mind, soul, and heart. Because beauty isn't...

    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.

    Ugly to the Bone

    "Beauty is only skin deep but ugly is to the bone." I saw a spot on television today about the latest reality show where an ensemble of "beautiful" people compete in a coed pageant-of sorts. There are sound bytes of "I'm gorgeous!" and "...

    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.

    I wish society was less centred on looks,

    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.

    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.
