We are build to look for traits desired and set by society, all the cosmetic and commercial have set a standard that people look for. But not everyone have the same preference, and so it differ from person to person, and the attractiveness is only the initial spark. There is no way around that so always keep yourself presentable and once that initial spark pass you can get to know the real person under neath it all. But honestly looks should not matter as long as you find a connection that runs deeper then just mere looks on the surface. But like anything. Always look presentable for we live in a materialistic world.
Honestly I don't know I think a girl that's good looking is easier to show off to other people but looks aren't everything from my experience girls who are good looking usually are stuck up and snobby unlike the girl that's not as good looking who is usually nice and caring but all girls are different
Maybe because you know if you dated a pretty woman people will say OMG look at that guy he is dating the prettiest woman but they ain't gonna say look he is dating an inteligent or good mannered woman ....
Define "good looking"..... Beauty is skin deep, ugly goes all the way to the bone! And, when physical beauty fades, do you want to be stuck with an idiot? The right kind of woman loves you for WHO you are...not what you look like.
