Would you rather date a "hot" or a "cool " person?

Asked by Christian95 (3260points) November 16th, 2010

Hot is all about physical beauty
Cool is all about style and attitude(this includes personality too)
So who would you choose?

It really depends on how un-hot the cool person is and how un-cool the hot person is.

I would choose cool but you can have both. I have both.

At this point, I wouldn’t be that particular.~

As a hormone crazed teen it was always hot, but after awhile you realize hot sometimes fades, cool stays around. (Been to any reunions?)

I would rather date someone who defies labels.

@chyna Here’s a cyber hug.

It wouldn’t matter so much as long as they could teach me a thing or two. I think I’d prefer hot if she was pretty smart. Cool and smart is ok, but my eyes would keep on roving and I don’t like that. I would want someone hot enough to keep me from seeing anyone else.

Of course, neither my wife nor I are cool, according to our kids. That doesn’t bother me; I was never cool. She is not as hot as she once was, but she’s definitely got it going. Personally, I was never hot, either. Intelligence, I’m told, is where my charms lie.

Neither, well the wife would bloody kill me.

Cool, cool, cool!
well, hot definitely doesn’t hurt…
nope, I’d rather have cool. You can always turn the lights off as long as you can have interesting conversations in the dark.

Cool. I can’t stand beautiful, dumb women.

LucyH's avatar

cool! well, even if temptation makes you go for the hot one sometimes :P

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

These are rather strange distinctions but cool I guess

JLeslie's avatar

Cool. Although, my husband is hot and cool I think.

chyna's avatar

@JLeslie Are you the jelly with a husband with the long hair?

crazyivan's avatar

All I look for in a date is enough discretion not to tell my wife about it.

Brian1946's avatar

I prefer the warmth of my wife to the temperature of anyone else.

JLeslie's avatar

@chyna yes, it is longish. But only has been for the last 6 or 7 years. It was short most of our marriage.

chyna's avatar

@JLeslie Then he’s hot in my book. I love long hair.

JLeslie's avatar

@chyna But, he is a whole package, know what I mean?

crazyivan's avatar

@JLeslie enough about your husband’s package now…

@chyna My hair is down to my ass… I’m just throwing it out there…

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

I’ll take cool.

chyna's avatar

@crazyivan Pics or it isn’t so.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

I’ve done both and experience favors “cool” for lasting power.

JLeslie's avatar

@crazyivan not that kind of package. Haha. I didn’t even think that when I wrote it. I meant strong work ethic, good looking, funny, nice smile, smart, dresses well, etc. Oy.

Blondesjon's avatar

I preferred easy in my younger, single days.

Nowadays I just prefer @jonsblond.

CaptainHarley's avatar

Hotties are a dime a dozen. Cool is a lot more rare, a lot more interesting, and a lot easier to get along with over the long haul. : )

Ron_C's avatar

Neither, my wife would object and my fear of my wife is stronger than my desire to “fool around”. She’s Irish and she’s armed.

Cruiser's avatar

Dating the hotties was fun and had it’s moments, but for the long haul I take cool with style. Sassy confidence is much more fun!

Paradox's avatar

@Joybird gets the best answer from me. I will be different here and say I prefer a warm person.

busta21's avatar

I would say cool would be the better choice because a hot person’s looks could change in an instant (skipped the gym for a few days, gained acne,etc) as with a cool person’s attitude it wouldn’t change as quick. A cool person could also turn into a hot person in a few weeks. All they got to do is start working out and basically just changing there appearance for the better. They would soon become perfectly warm.

wenwen's avatar

Just someone who you feel a connection with , and whom you experience mutual care , honesty , trust & respect. Thats what its about for me.

manolla's avatar

For me, personality is more important, so I will have to go with cool.
