    I have met so many people in my life

    Someone who has a great personality makes them

    instantly more attractive. It's usually the people who are often over looked by others because they may not be as attractive as some, though the beauty of their personality shines through and it's captivating. When you’re attractive to someone because of their personality...

    A pretty face can make me blush,

    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.

    Good looks don't last forever.

    But personality tells you a story about the person you are getting to know. I like to know things about the person I am getting to know because then they bring up certain things and ask me and then I can offer my advice or what I would have done differently. I would pick...

    actually like me if they never knew what I looked like. Why do people only care about appearances? Sometimes I wish we were all faceless so people had no choice but to get to know my personality.

    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.

    I never really put too much weight on looks. I don't mind being friends with people who look nerdy, stupid, ugly or whatever you may call them, as long as they can live up to my character expectations. More than anything else, I prefer people who knows how to respect other people...

    looks are genetic and a gift from God,

    unless you go to the doctor to have yourself altered. Personality is the most important part of a person. Through personality you find out if a person is genuine, loving, caring, funny, etc. Looks have nothing to do with these qualities in a person. If you are fortunate enough...

    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.

    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.
