A Challenge to Your Intellect

Posted on: June 4th, 2013 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle


If a person you are considering dating is drop dead gorgeous but had no intellect would that matter. Would beauty ultimately win over brains


When dating someone, one of the key factors or first things a person may notice is the physical attributes of the individual they are interested in. It could be a pretty face, thin waist with hips and legs to match or a clean cut, tough body and well groomed man who takes the cake but is it the physical beauty the only thing sending you over the edge?


Statistics have shown that the physicality of a person has played a significant role for individuals when dating or looking for a significant other. Additional factors such as employment, goals in life, lifestyle, background, etc. are also other characteristics people look into but for many, the outer appearance still wins.


Usually a person’s outer beauty influences a portion of what people look for in their significant other but how much influence does it entail. Is it the physical attraction that plays such a important role when dating someone that people are blind-sided by their true character?


Has society become so shallow that it has influenced us to choose our partners solely based on looks? Personal self-esteem issues or the idea of not having someone look the par on your arm has become a major issue for some people. Setting standards when looking for a significant other is vital when dating but do you continuously choose beauty over the true character of a person?

Do men prefer women with no brains and big breasts or a woman that they would be proud to take home to their mother? Vice versa  if a man has his shirt off and looks like Brad Pitt! Are women more attracted to what we see than what comes out of his mouth? Let’s examine all sides of the equation!

I’ve asked this question to my friends a couple of times before. Honestly, first impressions do count. Of course your eyes will stray to someone attractive. However, you will never know if the attractive person has a provoking personality or is conceited, arrogant and/or ditzy.. until you actually approach the person and talk to her/him.

Some typical answers I have heard to this question go along this line: “if I was out with my friends, I would be looking for an attractive woman but just to hook up with, but I want a real girl who I can take home to my mom but with a great personality and is wife-material.”

Numerous people say that they would choose personality over looks but would also like their mate to be attractive, but first impressions speak volumes, creating a stereotypical image of what women and men should look like for society to base their first impressions on. It creates higher and unrealistic expectations but this is how the world works.

So what do you think? Who would you choose?
