Which one do you prefer to have in your life partner? For me, I would say that I prefer brains over beauty because 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' Beauty can be inside as well as out but brains... well that's only inside ;) can't argue with that I'm afraid. Let's hear what you know have to say about this. Answer honestly please.

brain for me. Life won't be that boring if your partner in life is smart. Besides physical beauty is nothing to inner beauty. Consider how lucky you are if you find someone who is beautiful inside out and smart!

Brain over beauty. Don't forget, it only takes an illness to wipe out that beauty!

It should be that way but what if it isn't then?

I need both but brains are more important. When you're old, beauty would have already faded, and there wouldn't be much of a physical attraction or heat, so you will need good company. And there is nothing more awful than a quiet person with nothing to say.

You are right but I have got just one question, if you live with someone all your life... I mean you grow old with them then don't you have an understanding between yourselves? If you have an understanding then a person with no brains can be a good company as well, am I right?

If I can't choose both,I guess I would have to pick brains. Beauty fades anyway and in the long run someone who makes sense and who you can talk too would matter more than someone you can look at but is as dumb as hell.

Exactly my thoughts. Plus beauty can be inside so we should not fall for the outer beauty alone. Am I right?

i guess i would go for brains since beauty can last a lifetime but intelligence is forever! though a bit of beauty would not be bad for brains, else some of us could be marrying gorillas!!!

I will prefer brain as beauty does not lasts for long and brain plays a very important role in developing understanding between a couple.

You are so right about couples having good understanding between themselves. I also respect your choice about choosing brains over beauty, a wise choice.

i'd go for brains. for me, intellect will always be a factor in choosing a partner for life. i really don't go for looks because i don't really consider it a factor to be included, because when times pass, we will both get old and there's no surgery that will ever take beauty and looks to last, but the brains and witts, it can never pass and it can be shared to our future children. also, i don't have enough patience with people who are so vain with what they look like but doesn't have any brains. they're just upsetting to be with.

yes i agree with you i choose brain because when you get old your physically attraction or your beauty fades away while if you have brains it will remains there and your intelligence can't take away from you :)and i believe in the saying "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"...because you'll be also look beautiful in the eyes of many people if you are intelligent enough in facing different trials in your life and you can communicate well... :)

Nicely said and thank you for agreeing with my point of view and participating in my discussion. Brains rules (not that I have much ;) )

There's many ways to look at this, however, I choose a way that seems very simple to me. I choose brains. If you really like someone, then you're bound to find them attractive. I couldn't be attracted to a man who was gorgeous, yet incredibly ignorant. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder! Being able to communicate and find common interests with someone makes them that much more beautiful in my eyes!!!!

It is more in my character to choose brain. But, person with brain would know that should choose beauty, coz that way would be too much without brain to have any kind of worries. And would have beauty to reach sometihng in life. Question is would one like to spend meaningless life.

A person with only beauty seems to me like a decoration piece. And I don't think anyone would like to spend a meaningless life.

I will also go with your opinion. I also give brain the lead over beauty but beauty also means alot to me but if I got the option to select any one I would select brain.

well friend as far my opinion is concern,i prefer the proper combination of beauty with brain,but the extent of brain is greater than beauty.the beauty is of three typs the first one is external,second is internaland the last is both,but brain is always internal.a life partner with good brain will defnetly helps to solve various types of problems in life.she helps you in your growth.but beauty is also important for me.

Beauty is a visual effect. Different beholders have different standard of beauty. From my point of view, girls with a featurless appearance but speaks, writes wisely and cares about those who are in poverty and distress are more beautiful than any Miss World ever existed.

I guess the two factors, beauty and brains are not that important in choosing my partner. But if I have to choose one, I wanna go for brain because it is already there and permanent.
