I mean traits as in bodily hair, eyes (color/ size), face features, personality. Which do you guys prefer for those, cause I don't know if i have a good personality or not, but i think i am lacking in my physical looks area (quite a bit).

You really need to stop concentrating on what other people think of your looks. If you think they're okay, for your standards, then they are. If you don't think they are, then you need to either find something to do to change it, or just accept that this is the way you are. You may not be able to completely get rid of your acne, or make your ears smaller (just examples), but you CAN change your attitude towards them. So why don't you concentrate on doing that?

i think your nickname is a good indication of your obviously, well lets say warped sense of self image. Chances are you aren't half the things you believe you are. There is no such thing as a perfect features and no perfect body. And chances are, if there was, it would not be 5'11 and 110 lbs.
Forget about being what you think everyone else wants you to be.

(what do you wanna bet i said the same thing as smurf? i have no orginality)

It wouldn't matter if you were fat. For whatever reason, you seem to think that looks matter. To some people they do, and to some they don't. Do they matter to you? Why? Do you think you'd be a better person w/ smaller ears and less acne? What defines a 'good person'?

Just some things to think about ... Okie? I'm not trying to pick on you or anything, i just think your body image could use a little work.

Why not check out Heather Corrina's body image article here??

i can't speak for everybody, but i'm sure a good number of folks will agree when say that the following traits are *good* to have:

self-confidence
a sharp wit, sense of humor
smarts
kindness to others
respect

Right now I'd say glossy short fur, bright amber eyes, and a cute little white patch on the belly are my favourites, but when I'm with my other cats I'd go for silky gold fur, on a long, slender frame and pale green eyes, or a lustrous grey mane and wonderfully fat tummy. Chances are, if I'm with a cat I love I'll know they're absolutely gorgeous. I'm like that with people too. If I dig you, you will look good to me, whether you're tall and skinny and have dark brown eyes, or short and fat and have shiny blonde hair. I could spend hours telling you how attractive the people I love are, and really, it's all based on loving them.

Why scream and cry when you know it's true?
Why fall in love when there's better things to do?

i agree with gumdrop when i say i think attractive traits are...

-independence
-a sense of humor
-matureness
-confidence
-respect

what's the point in being with someone if they just have a pretty face? then you have *nothing* to talk about, and that sure as heck aint fun.

really, everyone *is* beautiful in there own way. if they weren't... well then we'd all look alike!!!!

*edit* spell check

Maybe SuperFat didn't exactly word her question right or whatever, but I think she has a right to ask it. You know? I mean, this is a good, honest website and we all share our good, honest opinions all the time, right? I know that I am curious to know what others consider "pretty" to be. (even though, yeah, I know, it's what's inside that counts). But, you know, I just think it's an interesting concept and a fair question.

*giggles* SuperFat, I'm afraid it happens fairly often that people think others are male/female/other, when actually they're something else than what the person thought.

Maybe we should use GNP's (Gender-Neutral Pronouns)... Then there'd be less mixups. Not that mixups aren't amusing.
