A.D.’s Soapbox: Looks vs. Personality

What’s more important looks or personality?
People often say personality to be nice, but there is a slight chance that those people might be lying. I am no saint, I’m also aware that I won’t be gracing the cover of any magazines soon. Let us pretend that I had the option to choice between Gabourey Sidibe (Precious) and Jennifer Nicole Freeman (Claire Kyle from the TV series My Wife and Kids), I’d go with Jennifer and make all my friends jealous. Joking! I would rather have someone with a sparkling personality than just looks, mainly because based on my experience the one with the looks would only value me as a platonic friend.

It’s been scientifically proven and I’ve done the research, a person cannot be both physically attractive as say Nicki Minaj and be as intellectually stimulating as Oprah (let’s pretend she’s not rich). I don’t know why, I guess it’s nature’s way in keeping us balanced in some weird way.

Seriously, if you’d rather have looks then say so. No one’s going to label you as a superficial vain egotistic maniac. When you lie to people and say that you value personality more then looks, dummies like me believe that something, if anything could happen.

Personality isn’t all bad, although people won’t always be able to see this during first impressions, they will value your company more.  However, people who have the greatest personalities aren’t always the most attractive. If you can find someone with looks and personality, hold on to them like there’s no tomorrow.

I want someone with looks but despite everything TV has taught me, money comes first then the Karrine Steffans types come along.  ‘I’m not saying she’s a gold digger, but she ain’t messing with no broke n*gga.’  

I’ll ask one more time, this time be completely honest with yourself. No one’s around, what’s more important looks or personality?

Adrian "A.D." Dubard

Born in Washington DC, Adrian was placed in the care of his maternal grandparents after his mother died when he was a baby. For the most part of his life, Adrian’s biological father was absent from his life. Growing up with a house full of cousins, aunts and uncles, Adrian began his love of writing to document his surroundings. Attending a private school for 9 ½ years, it was there that many influential teachers help strengthen his love of writing via English and creative writing classes. Even though, Adrian loved to write he was reserved about what he wrote about. Leaving DC at the age of 7, Adrian and his family moved to Temple Hills, Maryland in Prince George’s not too far from where he had lived previously. Luckily, Adrian had taken part in many youth outreach programs as a youth that allowed him to travel and see the country, many kids he knew around his own age hadn’t even left the city. These experiences opened his eyes to other cultures and ways of living. As a teenager, Adrian had many friends who passed away before their time but he promised to keep writing to honor their memory. Other than writing, Adrian has helped various charities rise by going on public speaking tours. Some of these charities include The Safe Haven Project and The Journey of Hope. He has contributed to several book projects and currently resides in Queens, NY. Read more articles by Adrian.
