In Mexico I've heard the term "shrimp" coz if you take out the head, it can be "eated"

It's got to be the face, the body can always be worked on no matter what state it's in. Besides, the face is what people look at (or as in some cases, should be looking at!) when in conversation.

The way I see it...

A beautiful face is more permanent (the eyes, symmetry, etc.), whereas most people's bodies tend to decline with age. So I prefer a beautiful face. Besides, if I were to date a guy with a really beautiful body, then I would probably feel painfully self-conscious about my own.

But I definitely care more about what's "on the inside" anyways...

I've dated quite a few really good-looking men in the past, and it's been my experience that they are often rather self-centered and conceited. So I eventually grew wiser and learned to focus more on what's on the "inside" above all else.
I used to have both, face and body and even tho' now I have a LOT to work on the body I still feel happy with my face. So its face for me.

Re: Rocking body or beautiful face

very good poll!

Both answers on the shallow side of choice.


I would probably go for rocking body.

It's a tough choice, but a less attractive body usually (not always) has factors of unhealthy lifestyle and genetics. Not so much with a fugly face.

Re: Rocking body or beautiful face

Having dated people in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and facial appearance, I'll go with face, for similar shallow reasons to others, that bodies change more with more ease and frequency than face.

Of course, what *I* consider attractive enough to approach is probably slightly different than mainstream anyhow. Although of course, cuties like Brad Pitt and Russel Crow do catch my eye too.

One of the guys who did catch me was similar build to "Big Poppa" Biggie Smalls, he did have to chase pretty hard though, but he did open my (young) mind to potential that would otherwise have remained unrealized. (Alas, jerk-hood is not limited by shape or size...)


This thread does bring a song to mind...

I'm surfing on my iPad and can't see what video you posted there... However, I think it's pretty cool that you have dated a variety of different looking people. I've always predictably gone for sort of the same looking guy

Agreed, also having gone across the entire spectrum, I've learned the most of life and myself from associations with the the greatest variation of people (smart, dumb, educated, applied, fat, skinny, ugly, beautiful, rich, poor, old, young---hmmm I think I've hit them all).

I find it most interesting when encountering someone who I just dislike from the start (we all know it happens). I always try extra hard to befriend such a person, and in many cases-they become some of the best friends I've had. It really taugh me lessons on shallowness and irrelavency of first impressions.

Ahh, recent lesson has taught me that if I don't really click with someone from the start (either friend or potential "something more"), it is best to leave it alone - otherwise I might find myself massively insulted by a drunken harpy and then slapped for good measure. (Sometimes it is good to trust our instincts.)

hahaha---definitely never encountered this situation, I guess I'm just too lovable .

But seriously, if anyone did attack me (verbally, or physically), I'm sure my 'rules of engagement' would be different.

Knowing what a true sweetheart you are, I'm really shocked that anybody could treat you that way

Re: Rocking body or beautiful face

I don't rely too much on the oh so famous first impressions.

Why? Because people change and so do you. It's always nice to leave room for a friendship or whatever relationship to develop. When it comes to friends - new ones and older or acquaintances from friends, I don't really know but will likely meet more than once - I don't give them up so easily.

But then again, I walked out of job interviews, because those guys where clearly crossing a limit on interview tactics. When it comes to disrespect I stop the situation immediately.

True, but a good body from the gym, will always require the gym. A meeting with the mother is always a good guage to see what's in store with less emphasis on effort related improvements

I assume that you are talking about the mother of the woman. Does the same apply to the father of the man?

Face. The person with the rocking bod will be looking at themselves in a mirror rather than you.

Hmm, yeah, I've been deeply hurt many a time by guys who tried to "construct an ideal girlfriend", as in, choose a chubby girl with a pretty face and after a few weeks of "oh, I love your shape" it was suddenly "hey, how about we go to the gym together, it would really benefit you" or "I don't think you should eat that". So no, you can't send her to boot camp, either you'll have her the way she is or you can eff off.

She doesn't even have to be that cute if she's willing
