well i have erm kinda slightly modified my previous post...seems like looks vs personality is a much easier and more apparent choice as personality certainly matters more as compared to looks..perhaps at e eend of e day its really the personality that shines and makes someone good looking on e outside. so lets twist it a bit.. looks v brains? would you prefer a partner who is brainy and smart giving u intellectual opinions on almost anything under the sun or someone who scores big on e looks department but has nothing much to offer when it comes to stimulating conversations? which would you choose now? =)

i would prefer looks..why? because it would create an impression that would baffle a lot people as to how she ended up with me. hehehe... i would go for the sake of intrigue...lol. but anyways, i am already married and i would honestly say that she has both!

Well, that is not really easier than your first discussion. People tend to be really picky and not everybody feels the same about others. I will rather go for looks as i know a few who have the looks, but really, no offense, nothing in the grey area, seems to function properly. As i am not a talktive person, eccept on mylot, it doesn,t really bother me. As long as i get an answer, when asking a queation or a ,i love you, i am happy. OKAY, now i a in trouble. My hubby says, he has the looks and the brain, i cannot complain. What ever can you say to that. i MEAN REALLY.

well first i must say ur hubby is a real confident man to let his wifey knw he is well endowed in both departments =) and thus u shd have no complaints whatsoever haha. u are e rare few who will honestly and bravely say looks are more important as some may be afraid if they choose looks over brains they may be considered shallow? well to each his own i suppose but scoring in both departments definitely is a plus!

He is reading the comments again. He is so proud of himself, for giving the right answer. REALLY, men can be so . I am sure you know what i mean.But i will not trade him for anyone else. i THINK.

Oh dear luckymichelle: very difficult indeed because I would not be attracted to either of them. Looks alone does nothing for me after he opens his mouth and says something stupid. At the same time, a "know all" who goes on and on about his vast knowledge without being anything to look at will also put me off completely. Whatever said and done, in the end its personality that counts. I can definitely do with someone who talk sensibly on any given subject and be moderate in looks and have the ability to be a stimulating companion, and that will be more than enough for me I guess.

Well I suppose to most girls we find it more important to find hta special someone who can so share our sentiments and connect wuith us in a magical maner which i cant explain. As for appearance, it would definitely be a bonus if he is well endowed in the looks department. The ability to hold stimulating and interesting conversation probably weighs much more. =)

well both of it occcupies equal importane . brain is required for doing the tasks in a limited period of time and to compete with othere whereas on the other side looks really matters. brain without looks is of no advantage. looks are required to impress the someone right in front of us.

Yes so it is really a tough tough choice to make isnt it? Looks or brains?

Both of them is much needed in finding a job. There are companies who hired applicants according into looks, others looks on intelligent individual. But what is more important? I believe brain is more important than looks, because you can always find a job if you are a wise individual. Looks is useless when you don't have "brains"(not intelligent)

Hmm well maybe that also depends on the type of industry you are talking about. Of cos in the academic, banking, engineering, chemist (just to name a few) field you definitely need that intellectual element in order to excel in your work. However certain lines eg modelling may require a much heavier emphasis on the looks department where outer appearance certainly matter more than how intelligent you are? =)

would be good to have both but I prefer brains since 10 years down the road looks will somehow be useless

I think the keyword is balance . But have u met someone where u just noticed her/his beauty when u start communicating with him/her? And have u met someone who is absolutely gorgeous that u later find him/her boring? (^_^)

Well, I like good looking person. But if I have to choose, my choice is definitely a smart partner rather than a good looking guy who can do nothing to help. Smart partner than bring us happiness with his wit and personality. His charm is ever lasting. However the pleasure a good-looking person bring us is always temporary. No matter how handsome or beautiful your partner is, you will get tired of facing the same face. And his good look does fades away with ages. You will get disappointed years later.

I think that having brains is better than having a great appearance. I love men who are smart. Men with good looks can tend to be stuck up or egotistic. Men with brains have something to say, and you can carry a conversation with them forever.

I think that a person should be paired with someone of similar intelligence. You wouldn't want to date someone that made you feel stupid. You also wouldn't want to date someone that can't keep up with the conversation you are trying to have. If they are constantly saying "What's that?" "What does that mean?" it's VERY annoying. SO basically what I am saying is, It's best to choose someone in your own intelligence level. I have dated girls that were smarter than me. And girls that were...NOT. To answer the question. I would rather date someone as smart or smarter than myself.

I would definitely go for brains. I also agree that we are very visual and get attracted to a person's good looks first, but at the same time, we are also drawn to discovering what's that person really like. Most of the time, we think with those good looks, he must be smart, or decent, or whatever seems nice. When we get past that aspect and notice the person has nothing more inside, it is such a big turn-off. Unlike when we meet someone who is not well endowed in the looks department, but makes us look at him with awe as he speaks; you would rather want to have more conversations with that person. At the end of the day, I think the brains would outshine the beauty.

Brains for sure because if someone has all the looks but no brains, then they're just a complete idiot. What's the point of someone with all the looks if you can't even have a normal conversation with them. If you only care about looks, then go for it. Otherwise, brains would be the smarter choice.

I certainly prefeer both, but if that is not an option i go for the brain first. Simply the way of woman thinking to ensure the best posible genes for thier offspring.

If I really have to choose then probably brains, cause being smart can make you sexy as well. haha.
