Nerd Love verses Shallowness

I recently was watching a show called nerd love and couldn't help but noticed the various reactions in the comment section.

I just don't understand why it so important for someone to be attractive in order to get a mate. Isn't love suppose to be about the person and not their appearance?

I need something to attract me to a person for me to want to be with them. It doesn't have to be their looks necessarily. It could be how nice they are, or that they are extremely talented.

My boyfriend is such an immense and huggable sweetheart I could care less what he looks like (he's not too shabby, though :dummy: )

Certainly things wouldn't be the way they were if he wasn't as good-looking as me :iconsnobplz:
It is only shallow when you base peoples worth on their looks.

well from what I know, it isn't just physical attraction. You can be attracted to a person's personality, at least that's how its been for me.

"Attraction" can encompass many things including appearance, personality etc. So yes, you need to be attractive in some way, not necessarily physically but you need SOMETHING that makes someone go "hey I like this person".

Love is about the person and not their appearance. Attraction brings looks into play. What sort of a relationship do you expect people to have if their other half thinks they look ugly as sin?

I know what you mean.
I fell in love with my partner first, and then started noticing how I found him attractive.

I heard of that, even though dating someone just for their physical appearance I admit I couldn't date someone I wasn't physically attracted to though their personality is very much important to me, true beauty is on the inside and physical beauty is a mask. :/

I wouldn't want to date someone I wasn't physically attracted to. :lol: Likewise, I wouldn't want to date someone who had a shitty personality.
