One of my best friend recently got a huge heartbreak because of a girl who told him that she doesn't prefer intelligence over beauty. My friend is good looking though not as much as the girl. But do you think that only beauty is relevant in a relationships? My friend by the way, is super intelligent.
So would you prefer beauty over intelligence too? I know I'd not.

What constitutes beauty and what constitutes intelligence are both highly subjective judgments. I don't know that you can expect anything other than a subjective answer to your question. Additionally, beauty and intelligence cannot necessarily be considered to be mutually exclusive traits.

@Krrypton,
Intelligence is beauty.

I am very unattractive but if I choose to I can look very attractive. As far as intelligent. I don't claim one of the most intelligent but I believe I'm fair. I could had been rather smart, very intelligent if I would not had suffered depression causing my ignorance my entire life. I know what I could had been. I don't really matter. I'll die one day. Get killed. Whichever. Yeah I think about it more often than not. I seriously feel I could had done quite fine without these two idiots having fucked with my head couple years back. But who knows. Everything happens for a reason. I am trying to understand I need to accept how my life is.

@Krrypton,
You would be surprised at how many intelligent men insist on acting immature due to they being afraid of rejection because of how they look; weight, facial appearance, etc.

It is rediculous. When I was eighteen, nineteen I went for the heart of a man. He needed a home, a job, a good heart, all his teeth(a good smile), a fairly in shape body... this was when I was eighteen, nineteen years old. Found my now husband when I was eighteen. Married at nineteen finally. Now at this point in my life, I understand how important intelligence is. I've matured slowly since I was eighteen, nineteen years of age. If I were to seriously get a divorce I would find a man of great intelligence not caring about how attractive he is in hopes he's not the mind game playing type. I'm done with attractive men and their mind games no matter how intelligent they may be. They've cost me a lot and are unaware. Sad story.

I am completely and utterly shallow, I prefer both. I can't stand a beautiful idiot. Even less so if they are ugly idiots.

You come across as yet another of the numerous accounts created here by anonymously99.

Weren't you going to stop doing that and just stick to one in order to be more believable and taken seriously here?

So would you prefer beauty over intelligence too? I know I'd not.

I always find questions like this to be seeking the devil (ie an absolute), rather than accepting that their are both individual & comparative degrees to which people are attracted to both intelligence and beauty. Given the variety in human genetics, I don't find a problem with preferring beauty over intelligence (ie everyone is different, accept them for who they are)

And in relation to comparatives - is there anything wrong with finding beauty more attractive than intelligence? For example - perhaps while she finds beauty more attractive than intelligence, she may find kindness more attractive than beauty - etc. (which would mean she finds kindness much more attractive than intelligence, etc)

@vikorr,
You can't seek negativity. You create it. The devil is the idea of negative feelings. 

Do you hate more than you love? Overcome the hate with the love within yourself. 

Hate is ugly. Unkind. Disrespectful. Else similar. The opposite of love.

Hate leads to sorrow. Feelings of sorrow. No one can appreciate such negative feelings. Not sure who would desire such feelings.

Love is the most beautiful feeling there is. The more understanding an individual is the more beautiful an individual is.

Not everyone is alike, the same. I believe there is someone meant for each one of us. Maybe we each have a soul mate. Or by chance we are all meant as a learning situation for one another.

No I realize there is a mental illness in there. I just haven't figured out which personality is the right one to respond to yet.
