In fact, imagine a situation where you are about to interview someone. You have two people in front of you. One man is handsome and efficient and the other man is just efficient. Both have the same qualifications and similar qualities.

Who would you select out of them? Of course, you would go for the handsome man, right? Yes, we all tend to get attracted to good looks. It is part of human nature.

But wait, it doesn't mean that looks are everything. They just influence the first impression. After that point, only the skills, talents and abilities matter. Nobody can bear a good looking person who is incapable either in a job or in a relationship.

So, looks do matter both in job search and partner search but only in the first phase. Now, let us discuss why handsome men score well in the first look.

Aura

Some people carry an aura with them. That attracts others towards them. When you are totally relaxed about your looks, you tend to carry that aura of a self-assured personalty and this impresses people around you.

Every man has a secret wish to sleep with the most beautiful woman and every woman would love to date a super hot hunk. So, if you have the looks, people around you would surely be secretly dreaming about you. Of course, good looks with a bad character is again a turn off.
