When you're in love with a nerd, how much does appearance matter? All nerds are cute naturally :), but when you meet a nerd for the first time, how much does appearance matter to you?
I'm the kind of person who thinks appearance is really important,and I was just wondering what the other nerdfighter girls think.:)
Appearance matters some, but personality always ranks higher than looks. When I first started liking the guy I like now, part of me thought that he really wasn't good looking (he's not at all ugly, but he's not exactly qualified to model for Abercrombie & Fitch), but that really did not and does not matter to me because I like him for who he is so much more. And now, of course, I do think he looks handsome no matter what.
Though being "hot" is not a requirement, it is unfortunately true that a certain image can attract or deter certain types of people. For instance, if I see some ripped guy dressed like Kevin Federline, I'm probably going to judge him. I know that this isn't right, but it's kind of difficult to get away from. On the other hand, someone who looks like a sweet, nerdy guy can turn out to be a real jerk. This is why it's important to get to know people, and even if you make an initial judgement based on someone's appearance, you should give him a chance to prove you right or wrong. What I find to be most important in a guy is his kindness, respectfulness, intelligence, and generally optimistic but realistic view on life. Of course these are just a few important qualities, but they are good ones. From what I've found, the more you get to know someone, the more his/her outer beauty begins to reflect his/her inner beauty. =D
Appearance matters a little I guess. Though less now that I'm no longer as hideiously shallow as I was...in the before time... anyway. I really think the capacity to hold an interesting, witty conversation is more important. appearance is the preliminary judgement, and it ranks the lowest on the final score
Appearance makes a difference to me, but I really look more at personality...As long as the guy isn't a bag-it boy, if he's got a sparkling personality and a lot of interesting facets and we get along, then I'd probably date him. Well, the being-attracted-to-him thing would kind of factor in to that. But that's chemistry, no way to fake that. :)
As long as he's not completely repulsive, I don't mind looks.
I don't look at guys like potential nerdy guy friends who could eventually lead to Nerdfighterlike because I don't believe guys would want to be in Nerdfighterlike with me.
So, I don't care how anyone looks. If that person wants to talk to me, I talk because I think that person is awesome until proven unawesome.
When a guy is the epitome of nerdy, it's because of his personality. I might start thinking about how that guy looks after meeting him just for fun (not romantically), but it's his personality that really matters.
And (as happened with my first Nerdfighter crush) if I start to like that person...he will start to look cute in my eyes even if before I thought he was very close to unattractive.
It's kind of how I know I don't like my first Nerdfighter crush anymore. He doesn't look ugly. He never did. But he doesn't look cute to me anymore. He just looks average...like he did before.
To me, as long as they clean regularly and look like they takes pride in their image, then I'm happy. Personality is more important though.
I'm fine as long as they try. If they completely don't care how they look and go outside looking downright grimey, then it's just gross.
