Would you rather be considered sexy for your looks or your intelligence?

Carrie Ann Carrie Ann
This thread made me confused cuz it seems to be asking 2 different questions.

1. Would you rather be considered sexy for your looks or your intelligence?
2. What do you think is more important, looks or intelligence?

I think intelligence is far more important than looks and I'd rather be considered smart than sexy by most people -- but I'd rather be considered sexy because of my looks by those I want to find me sexy.

That totally makes sense to me.

Looks are fun short-term, but brains is what endures long-term

I agree with carrie ann, this thread is a bit confusing. I think the inside matters more but what is inside someone is more than intelligence. If someone was a great person, attractive, attentive and caring and all that but really dumb why is that bad. A lot of good traits come together with intelligence but intelligence by itself really isn't much.

I vote for looks, people who are attractive just have an easier time through life and being less intelligent doesn't phase them at all, see example ryan lochte

My brain. Because someone who values my brain would use their brain to determine that my looks are pretty damn good too

i have had a lot of good looking boyfriends that were just dumb dumb and more dumb to put it nicely and honestly i hated them mostly for that reason so looks is not a HUGE issue its mostly about goals and ambition and wanting to be a real man thats the most attractive... wanting to provide for your girl is the most attractive thing ANY man can do!

I hope I'm not considered hopelessly shallow for this, but I find it impossible to be sexually attracted to someone whose looks I don't find attractive, regardless of their intelligence, wit, or personality. Likewise, no matter how physically attractive someone is, a lack of brains, sense of humor, or empathy can kill the deal.

I don't really CARE why someone is attracted to me, only that, if I'm attracted to them, that they're attracted to me, too.

This is a hard one, I really would prefer both to be an all around package for a guy, but I find I would prefer brains over looks, just because looks can and most likely will fade over time. The cliché that brains will last is a much closer reality then looks.

For me it's intelligence all the way. I look nice but I'm not my looks, who I am is inside.

Intelligence, looks fade far more quickly and I hate when people are obviously only interested in me because of them anyway. Personally I find a great personality much more appealing than any physical appearance.

I agree with Kendra 100%. In a perfect world looks wouldn't matter and it would only be about what is on the inside, but we are NOT living in a perfect world and looks do matter to people. So, while a relationship would not work if there was no attraction on a mental, intellectual level.. if a man doesn't find you physically attractive there will not likely be a relationship to begin with.

Can I say both? But my partner loves me for my brains (or so she says) I sure hope that she loves me enough after she sees the zeros behind my medical school loans!

A girl could be completely stunning but if she's dumb as a box of rocks and can't have one little intelligent conversation with her then it is a MAJOR, MAJOR turn off.

Mostly intelligence. I think now that I'm married, I don't mind either/or. I think I'm attractive to guys, but they really tend to like my personality (not exactly intelligence). I've had a few guys ask me if I have a twin that they can date.

Why can't we have both?
I would rather date or be with someone intelligent, but I don't mind having sex with people that aren't too smart ; )

Personally, I have to go with intelligence. I am not attractive by any means, at least I do not think I am. I'd rather someone be attracted to my intelligence rather than my looks because I believe it is very shallow to judge a book by it's cover. Sure, we're animals by nature, and seek out a partner visually, but I have to think there is some hope for me as an intellectual person.

If I had to choose one, I would definitely say intelligence over appearance. But I want my partner to find me irresistible in all ways!

While I think intelligence is more important, being considered beautiful by superficial standards would be really nice, especially being someone who never really has been.

Intelligence most definitely.
