    If you want someone who's a good **** with a

    hit body, by all means, pursue your dream of having that. But remember, looks fade, and you're gonna have to choose your hot chick / prettyboy wisely - they're gonna be with you through thick and thin and see you at your worst.

    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.

    The good looks not everything actually

    sometimes we find the good looks but the personality is really bad or it's just not there. I've met that pretty girl before she was really beautiful until I went to her and told her you are beautiful although she may get the wrong idea but I didn't care, when she started...

    for me, all that matters is the personality of

    a person, if that person is kind and funny and stuff like that. But I know not everybody thinks like that and it makes me kind of insecure about how I look, because I just want people to like me, especially the people I like, I know I shouldn't care about what they think of 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.

    I have realized that a person can look very

    beautiful and sexy on the outside, but the minute you see that person's attitude that beautifullnes can turn ugly real quick.

    Beauty comes from within

    Personality vs Looks.

    Majority of us believe that personality is all what we look for; perhaps to sound more sensible, impressive, reasonable, logical among our social acquaintances. But its lot easier said than done. All I understand is we naturally fall in love with the personal traits, once we...

    It'S All In The Mind

    Don't be fooled by appearance.

    .. Why would you want something that looks good but ugly in the inside? Looks doesn't last long anyway! Personality does it lasts forever! Which is why you should spend time with someone getting to know them really well before deciding or taking it any further! Personality...

    And if you're true and genuine, I think that's beautiful.

    You could look like a supermodel,

    but if you're a *****, give it a few years and I guarantee you, you will be alone. Sure you can get married, but when your good looks fade and you start to resemble a dried up leather handbag with a bitchy personality you're going to be divorced living in a house full of cats...

    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.

    that say looks don't matter, because honestly they do. You can not completely be with someone unless you're attracted to their physical appearance somehow. Because if you are not attracted to them physically then you will not want to be physical or sexual with them. So looks do...

    so superficial and obsessed with looks. I like to wear cute clothes and take care of myself, but I don't obsess over it, nor am I a high maintenance girl. Meeting a good-looking guy that I like is nice, but I certainly care more about character and personality traits. A good...

    for "models" to converse with? I might be talking to someone and they ask for a picture and when I send, they stop talking to me. (It's kind of funny when I re-read the last statement.) I have always struggled with self-esteem issues so them doing that doesn't help. Though, in...

    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 think that beauty has overtaken the world

    right now, and definitely not in a good way. Everything is sexualised which kind of makes me lose my ****, especially when it comes to music. I like Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Queen and many more. So to be hearing ****** music like 'Anaconda' makes me puke a little. But what...
