It doesn't matter to me at all. I've known some very, very UGLY "beautiful" people. When a person is hateful and nasty to others, no amount of make-up, no fancy clothes or perfect hairstyle can hide the UGLY that is inside of them. Now, I'm not saying that every phsically beautiful person is like that however, my personal feeling is the heart and brain of a person is far more important than what they look like phsically.

Yes physical beauty do matters to me but only for unknown persons or for meeting for the first time. For my friends it is their behaviour or personalities that matters the most. If physical beauty combines with beautiful personaliity then its a great combination and I love to meet such persons though they are quite few.

On the first instance, physical appearance seems to be important but as the time goes and we have to mingle with her/him once in a while, attitudes comes in. So if a man/woman is beautiful but in the long run it turns out to have bad attitudes, the beauty in them diminishes. While when a man/woman is not quite beautiful but the attitudes are good, they sure are winners.

Physical beauty is not that important. I have met people with fantastic personalities that when you look at them they shine. So it it more a matter of how they are than what they look like.

For me it does matter to some extent I guess..i mean the general appearance of the person when you meet for the first time.After i've known the person for a while and know the real nature then it does not matter.

Sadly people take too much heed about beauty and it is so highly sought after, yet beauty fades and so many people do not take the time to find out someone's inner qualities and talents, just because you are not 'beautiful' doesn't mean you do not matter, beauty is after all in the eye of the beholder. A sense of humour never ages, neither does kindness, compassion, empathy or warmth, however looks do. There has to be chemistry there for a relationship to develop but no relationship can survive on looks or beauty alone. Sadly the two very rarely come hand in hand. For me a sense of humour is prized more greatly than beauty. Sense of humour to me is the beauty.

I've to admit that in an initial phase when you meet somebody you tend to judge quite a lot from appearance. But I also think that when you get to know someone that you start to like I think that I suddenly think they look better than before I got to knew them...

I wont call it physical beauty, but physical appearnce certainly creates an impression in my mind. I get impressed by people who are neat, people who look like they care for their appearance and people who dress according to their size and shape. Certainly physical appearance is very important when you meet the person for the first time. But subsequently when we talk to them, we understand more about them, and then we know the real inner beauty of the person. The beauty of character, heart etc.

I really care about phycisal beuty. I know that a person has to be beuty from the inside as well, but I won't go out with a woman that doesn't look so good.

To me beauty is relative, I would not want people to judge me solely upon my looks, but that not to say it doesn't happen. People frequently forget that physical beauty fades in time and the real essence of the person remains. I also believe that physical beauty promotes vanity and that is a useless and oftentimes troublesome emotion.
