This new generation will never be the same anymore. If u ask me, my true believe is that Beauty Fades but Character will stay the same forever. But nowadays, people start to look for beauty..they subsided or ignore the character. Like singles and married women opted for plastic surgery for lifting,sagging, liposuction and so on..spend so much money for beauty... staying simple and have good communication with anyone is a good thing. in this kind of economic crisis, its hard to earn money...will the hubby and bf care for a woman on beauty? or character? what if she is not beautiful anymore, are u going to look for someone? or stay with her? what do you think?

Let me tell you something, i have a guy friend, he told me that, if he is looking for a girlfriend, he will pick the pretty one, but if he is looking for a wife, character/personality is very improtant factor. I think that explains the things happen nowadays. To me, i think personality will be my concern rage. You have to know that all the beaty will gone oneday,sooner or later, but charactor and personality will last forever/.

Well, I can surely agree that the new generation is going down the gutter in that concern. Looks have become more important than a person's personality. Personally, I'm still a bit on the flip side. Now, color my hypocrite if you must, but I'll have to say that I wouldn't marry "The Beast" either... but I find wrong to judge someone negatively just because he/she doesn't look like a top model. My Ex was a bit on the chubby side, something that she believed she was the fact she was repelled by all other boys, but even so that didn't stopped me from getting close to her. So I guess this is a picture of what's happening in the world as is. Of course, when a person has neither good looks nor personality, then we do have a large issue since there is nothing to pick up on.

I think it is important for the person to have GOOD personality. Personality is what counts, i don't care how fine you are if your attitude is wack, then forget it, I don't care if they look as fine as Shad Moss. Nowadays its hard because the pretty boys are either TOO cocky and into themselves/stuck up or there's some hidden problems they have. The ugly guys are easy, but you DON'T want to be with them you want to have at least a decent looking guy with a nice personality/swagger(the way they carry themselves). One guy I dated in high school was kind of cute but not as handsome as i wanted him but he was ok, and I took him inside out(like him for his inside not outside). In todays society they take looks over EVERYTHING!

I also go for character. Like what you said, beauty fades but not the character. No matter how much money and time you spend to be beautiful, its useless if you had a bad character.

I choose the character. Character is inner beauty. Women no sexy without inner beauty. I think outer beauty can make more beauty in this era. That is very simple make more beauty women. A lot of tools to make over (sorry) ugly girl become beauty girl. But, no tools to make over the bad character become a the good character. I love inner beauty

I'll say character is still the more important element of a person because beauty actually lies in the eye of the beholder. But as for character, everyone will more or less have the same impression and also character is what matters the most in a person because with good character, a person will be well-like by anyone. As for women spending money just to get good looks, its just for the sense of self-satisfaction and I can see that men does that as well these days because its the age of the metrosexual.

It would be naive to say that beauty is not and should not be an important element in any person's life. Ideally, this should be the case. But, in real world, people do get impressed by beautiful men, women and even inanimate objects. I believe, to notice beauty and admire it has been hardwired into our brain.

the important thing for me is the character of a person.,it doesn't matter if you are beautiful nowadays....being beautiful is just an outside look only....but if you have good character,,,you will see in your own eyes the beauty that you have...beauty will fade but not your good character..it will last.

Personally I think character is more important. The world does not agree with me though because it only want skinny beautiful people who are young. Some of the most beautiful people on the outside are quite ugly on the inside where it really counts. It would be nice if this changed so people would prefer inner beauty and character but it will not.

Honestly, when it comes to relationships, looks do count some to me, BUT, I mainly go for personality. Thats what matters most to me. It matters a lot actually. The guy I am with now, yea, he looks good, but the most important thing is that he is sweet. And he treats me right. Now I could go looking for some stud, but who knows? He could just be mean to me. I want a sweet, caring, smart person. Someone with a good personality. And I have found that.

I believe the character of someone is much more important though as it is the character which will eventually differentiate someone from someone else in behavior, mentality, maturity and responsibility so a character is essential to me then later we can think about the beauty.

character holds an important position for me than beauty, imagine a girl with beauty but no good character, then who will marry her or look after her especially in her old days. beauty is important in many places but not to loose the character.
