Do Looks Really Matter? 8 Confessions from Real Guys

"Looks do matter when it comes to getting to that point of being in love. If you're pretty but you're finding that the men you seek are only interested in 'perfection,' then you are attracted to the wrong men. Also, women do not seem to be very good at evaluating female beauty. For example, the last memorable woman I saw was in a photograph in our newspaper two days ago. She was the topic of a human interest column. She was out golfing, and got teamed up with a young teenaged boy who gave her a few tips on the game. Anyway, she's 48, and was obviously no Barbie doll, but it was a really nice story; she had great eyes, hair and smile; and I've spent the last couple of days trying to decide whether or not I should try to get in touch with her since the columnist is a friend of a friend. On the flip side, I was at a fancy mall yesterday, full of thin 20-somethings, blondes with makeup and fancy clothes, each more forgettable than the one before her." --iVillager cl-sylvie369

"Yes, looks matter, but everyone's preferences are different, so I would not worry about it. When two people are in love and grow old together, they will only see the person that they love, and that person will remain beautiful to them." --Todd, aka iVillager joeaverage334

"Every day I see the stick-women in the gym. They don't break a sweat, and are very easy to ignore. The woman I want to talk to is the one with a flush on her cheeks, the sweat pouring off her and a smile on her face. She is working hard no matter how she looks. More often than not, she is a working mother, and she is working on herself for her. When a woman has that confidence, or the courage to work on herself to gain that confidence, it shows." --iVillager harley_ridn_monk
