To you what's more important body or personality. I get that beauty is a major factor for many people when it comes to dating. But for people like myself who aren't ugly but not models either, our personalities are what we rely on. So what's more important to you?

i always try to keep in mind that the idea for dating is to find someone to MARRY, and spend the rest of my life with. this includes all the way up till death. so by the time i die, i'll be old and ugly, so i would hope that my spouse would love me for who i am, because if they like me for what i look like, then they would have left me long before that. 
"passion based on physical attraction will die with time, but keep in mind that beauty is in the eye of the beholder." 
i can see when one would think a girl is attractive, but she's not nessisarily attractive TO ME. but personality is definetly the most important. but that doesnt mean you need to ignore looks either. its basically all about balance.
 
i feel like i didnt say at all what i meant to:P

Obviously, no one is going to date someone that they don't find atleast a little physically attractive, but personality is what's really important. If I had to choose one or the other I would definitely choose personality. Personally, I've seen people that I didn't really think was physically attactive, but then I got to know them and their personality completely warped my views on them, and vice versa. I believe when things like that happens, it more than proves the importance of personality.

However, when looking for friends I only look into the personality. The body/looks of my friends is of no importance to me.

To me it seems that when you truly care about someone, it doesn't matter what there physical appearance is, because they become so beautiful to you.   

I hope that people I date like me for who I am, not not the way I look.   

That's not to say I don't like to feel pretty, but I hope I never let physical appearance get in the way of what really matters.

I'm with booknerdsanonymous on this one. However, its not really an either/or situation. Any good romantic relationship includes both physical attraction and good personalities.

Personality! All the way.. i may be a pretty chicka, but my boyfriend is a scruffy redneck and I love him. If you go for personality you will end up with somone you truly love and cherish. In the end everyone ends up old and ugly, so personality wins!

Ahem, cough, cough.
 
PERSONALITY!!! I mean who wants to have an insanely cute boyfriend or girlfriend when they're as boring as a piece of dirt. I mean, come on. Common interests are important. A good sense of humor, but with plenty of sensitivity to help with all the understanding stuff is seriously a must-have.
 
So yeah that's what I gotta say peace out!

I know I'm not the prettiest girl, or even close. But I really do hope that a guy well anyone would hang out with me because I'm a good person, not because they like the way I look... It kinda creeps me out to think that people would hang out with me just for my body, truth to be told, it sounds kinda stalker-ish.

Personality is definetly more important, because that's what you should fall for. Yes you need to be attracted to the person but that's not the main thing.
