Do Looks Really Matter?
This is an old question and one that will probably never go away.
People are always going to be debating about whether looks matter or not when it comes to dating and relationships.
When talking about whether or not looks matter it’s always to acknowledge that there is some difference here regarding genders. The reality is that both genders view this topic differently and there have been studies that also demonstrate this. Most people will probably acknowledge that looks do matter but only up until a certain point.
For example, looks tend to matter when you first initially meet someone but after this, more emphasis is placed on internal qualities. So physical attraction is an important first step but then more deeper level personality traits are necessary to really take things to the next level.
So the bottom line in all of this is that it’s important to take care about how you look, stay well groomed and have a great appearance but isn’t the be and end all with dating. There are certain scenarios in dating where looks will be more important as well.
One of those scenarios is speed dating. Speed dating is the kind of dating scenario where looks are going to take precedence over other factors and this is just because of the limited amount of time there is to spend with someone.
If you only get a couple of minutes to spend with someone then physical looks are going to be something that stands out a lot. It’s only a very short space of time to get to know someone so you’ll need to stand out and make a good first impression. One of the ways you do that is via looks.
People, whether they realise it or not, make unconscious assumptions about what kind of person someone is based on how they look. So in a speed dating environment you can see why looks matter a lot more than they would in other dating scenarios.
