Rocking body or beautiful face

Sort of inspired this thread.

Two men/women crossing the road.
One has a rocking body and a not very attractive face
and
the other has a beautiful face and a body that, let's say, needs a bit of work.

Now I'm not talking about extremes here. So the hot bodied one does not have a dog-ugly face and the beautiful faced one is not anorexic or obese.

P.S. It's not a public poll so your secret is safe with me

Re: Rocking body or beautiful face

I think we can take a lot in in a nannosecond. Therefore, if I see a guy with a great body, I will appreciate that and then check out the face ... and vice versa

If he has the ability to touch my soul, he's automatically got my heart too. But I guess this thread is about superficial attraction.

My teenage son came home one day from school and described a girl in his class as a "butterface." I asked what that meant, and he replied, "You know, she has a great body, but her face....." So it appears that this conundrum has a name (at least for women, wouldn't you know).

Hopefully a little maturity will cure him.

Re: Rocking body or beautiful face

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.

Re: Rocking body or beautiful face

Both, definitely both.

If I have to choose, then the face. Faces are so much more expressive.

E.g. The Stones: I personally really like Keith Richard or Mick Jagger's face, although they are not typical stereotypes.

Re: Rocking body or beautiful face

Can't do the poll - I want BOTH (at my age I should be lucky).
Put a third option 'GSOH' and I might tick that one, because long-term it beats the other 2 hands down.
In fact NO, I want ALL 3 (oink, oink, ink).

Mine would have said that too, but he was a bit old...and got things mixed up.

Re: Rocking body or beautiful face

Seems silly just to tick both options in the poll, but it's both. One night stand? Body. Something longer? Face.

Re: Rocking body or beautiful face

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.

You'll need to wait for the autopsy.

By the way, why are a few of you asking your grandfather for sex advice?
