The basis is the foundation of a process/idea. And the initial approach is the foundation (basis) of any relationship. Without that approach, you couldn't possibly build any relation because it IS that foundation. If we at all,even in the tiniest bit, have been conveyed in any way by beauty, or lack there of, then that means it is ONE basis of any relation(including love). If we are simply arguing if it is a basis of love,
not how big of a part, then it is hard to deny. But if you were to change the argument to let's say, "you can't have love without beauty," this entire argument would be invalid. Because though it may be a basis, it does not mean it can't be overcome if need be. Love is possible without beauty, but it is still apart of the foundation (basis) of relationships and love.

well for somone new u are making a great start.

I don't judge by looks completely. of course we get its conscious or not u scale somone in ur brain. I'm talking about acting on it. sure I possibly think somone on TV is hot but I don't love them.

I disagree with the statement but it doesn't hurt to play little devil's advocate.

We as people can't possibly blindly fall in love because even though we may not say it, we judge harshly on the looks of others even before we say a word to them. And to say that the looks of others doesn't affect how we approach and think of others(even in the least bit) is just false. If we choose not to approach anyone based on looks then we could be losing out on any relation (possibly love) that we may have had with that person. This initial approach; this initial interaction, is therefore the basis of any love. And since we sometimes refrain from approaching based on looks, we are truly making looks/beauty apart of the basis of love. This goes for any feature that may or may not push us towards the beginning of new relations.

Bringing a change is the toughest thing especially when it comes to modifying the mindset.... As modi changed the currency in order to remove corruption... Very few people supported it... They can stand for 2 hrs to buy jio sim but not to support the country.... They have trouble changing the notes how much trouble pm must be having in changing the country... God this is what that really disgusts me

People want it but really are not able to get it because what they are searching for is looks and not the inner beauty.... They see a girl who is really pretty and then I am in love with her.... Isn't this what is happening all around us...?? And this is the main reason for the failures of relationships... They start liking a girl and develop some kind of relation with her and then break up coz that same pretty girl is so ignorant.... Beauty is the biggest cause for love

I meant relationships based solely on looks. they are fine when ur young because ur learning or if u want to die alone but for the most part people want a deeper connection than looks.

No they aren't stupid.. That's a basic human psychology... Do u know what is crush?? U can never have a crush on someone unless the person is not physically attractive... I agree that personality plays a major role in relationships and all but looks are as important..

that's because most guys are stupid.(I'm a guy so I'm allowed to say that). it starts on looks if u look at that person as datable at first but it can be different. like when friends become something more. I bet they weren't thinking about looks but got connected so much that one of them took a chance and won the lottery of love.

But I have never... Attraction is the basis of love and looks form the ground for attraction... Also in a love triangle, always the one with beauty is chosen and not the one with good nature...

Good... It sounds very nice theoretically but mostly it is not practical...

when I consider dating a girl her looks are literally the last thing I check. her personality is by far higher on that list of needs.
