single and over 30 do people still go for looksPage 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
If you doing online dating, the truth is that looks is 95% of what you have to go on. That's why I do much better in bars, then online dating.

You don't nuance or body language, you don't user your other senses when you actually approach a woman and attempt to engage in conversation. With online sites, you get a controlled series of photos (or should be controlled in my opinion), scripted text (or lack of it) and some basic profile information.

No one wonder people go by looks, it's all they seem to have to go by.

I don't think most people's looks start fading by the time they turn 30- sheesh. That's still pretty young. Most people's bodies start aging by the time they turn 40.

Why on earth do you think that being attracted to your mate would change when you reach 30? It has never been all about looks for me, but I must still be attracted to my mate... Then AFTER that comes whether we are compatible in all the other areas... I don't want to have sex with a person I find unattractive... I have looked after myself and prefer a mate that has also looked after himself... But NO amount of good looks will keep me with a inconsiderate, rude, selfish ass hole...

So yes... Looks do still matter... But they are not the only thing that matters...

"If you want unconditional love seek your family or a domestic pet." LMFAO!!!!!! So funny and soooooo true. No matter how much we would like them to be, our lovers / spouses / friends will NEVER be family.

I know as I've gotten older I care less about looks than I used to...or rather, I care more about other things than I did when I was younger. Of course there still has to be a physical attraction, but depending on what gets said and how she is as a person/how her mind works, someone who is a 6 or 7 can become a 10, or someone who is a 9 or 10 can become a 2. I also like to try new things when I am out, so the younger generation that seems to revolve around food and nothing else (besides taking pictures of said food) doesn't really work for me.

That said, most of the girls I've gone out with have been younger, and all of them seemed to still be completely wrapped up in what others thought of them, and on looks, hence why things never really did go anywhere a lot of the time. My hope is girls in their 30s have their head on a bit more straight, but I haven't dated any in their 30s yet.

My opinion is looks never stop mattering. As I get older and look around me at the guys and gals my age who are getting up in years, it strikes me that they are simply not all that attractive . . which is a big reason why I think both sexes give up on relationships and love when single and older. They have no interest in being involved with a person of their own age because the attraction is not there, but they have no realistic possibility of being involved with a more attractive person of a younger age. So people tend to accept their fate and exit the dating scene. Except on POF of course where delusions still abound.

It's still beauty in the eyes of the beholder. Damn, I'm so picky, but it's not like I'm getting many offers anyway. More ugly personalities have come into my life from out from under a bridge I think.

Some level of physical attraction has to exist in a relationship. I know there are people here who try to deny it, but it's true.

Trying to start a relationship with someone you have no physical attraction to whatsoever is foolish. It can be guaranteed you will either look to someone else to fill that void or you will fantasize about it. There's no way around it.
