Probably personality, but the person has to be somewhat physically attractive TO ME. It is hard to have that physical connection fi you aren't attracted to them physically. i know it sounds shallow and everyone is gonna be like "its the personality, i dont care about looks herp derp" but looks play a role in who you find attractive end of discussion. Like the above poster, i would say it is a mix, but the money part doesnt matter to me. I live a pretty frugal existence.

Looks and personality. Gotta be someone I want to look at and got to be someone I generally like/have things in common with.

Huge Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe, South Park, and Stan Marsh fan!

'Cause I need freedom now
And I need to know how
To live my life as it's meant to be.
And I will hold on hope
And I won't let you choke
On the noose around your neck
And I'll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I'll know my name as it's called again.

Looks and personality. Money doesn't really matter (unless they have a gambling problem or are a little too generous with credit cards).

Personality really, but I wouldn't want to be with someone who looks like a troll with 3rd degree burns on its face.

Personality. I've been attracted to people I meet in real life who I only realized were kinda ugly when I saw them in pictures later on.

Personality. Although its a bonus if they're attractive, I don't care overall as long as I feel comfortable around them & love their company.

I totally agree with you (and I don't think that makes us shallow). You put a lot of unnecessary strain on a relationship if you're dating someone you don't find physically attractive.

It's only a problem if your standards are so high that you'll only go out with supermodels. I've personally found certain women attractive that other guys probably wouldn't. It just so happens that different people like different things

As for money, I don't care at all. The type of woman who wants a man for his money is the type of woman I have no interest at all in.

I'm going to be honest and say looks and also personality. Their personality makes them more attractive in my opinion.

Personality. I don't get it how some people can choose their partner just because of their appearance.

I chose "other" because I'm separating character from personality. Personality is still more of an external thing to me than character. Personalities change and mean very little in dire situations. A girl can be funny, charming, & polite but her inner heart, the aspect of one's nature that remains unchanged is much more valuable. Putting love in someone's personality has proved to be potentially detrimental to my well being. If through all the beatings society gives her she still shares similar virtues to me I will be extremely attracted.

Her personality would go right after that though...if she's smart I will definitely be much more attracted to her.

I she the law of attraction for me as a multiplier system. I might instinctually notice the weaker of the multipliers first but nonetheless a good balance between Looks, character, & personality would have me sprung.

Character x3
Personality x2.5
Looks x 1.5

Lets say she was a 7 in looks but had the perfect character she'd then be a 21 lol...now my system needs tweaks and I now have no idea what I'm saying but yeaaahhh ignore my multiplier system lol

that character and personality is what's sexiest about a lady though...and to be honest the most important part of her personality is maturity and honesty..all that other ish may be attractive but I don't value it more than maturity and honesty. I believe how funny or loud or polite she is doesn't really matter to me at this point. Maybe I'll grow into another appeal.
