I guess this applies to both sexes. As always, there are exceptions and flexibilities so take this with a grain of salt. When it comes to attractiveness... Great face and great body: Hot Decent face and decent body: Cute Great face, decent body: Hot Decent face, great body: Hot Not so great face but amazing body: Cute(ish?) Really great face but less than decent body: Cute(ish?) I really think it all boils down to that when you really look at it. When you see a hot stranger, you're usually taking them all in, instead of pointing out perceived imperfections, especially those in their face (not saying that in an asshole kind of way, but 99.9% of people have a less than "perfect" face). Basically 90% of one's self is below the neck so when you're really taking in a stranger's looks, you're not going to be staring at his/her's slightly larger than desired (in your opinion) nose, or whatever small percieved flaw it may be. If you want to get in shape for the new year, hopefully this will encourage you as it's encouraging me. I think I have an attractive face but I know that if I have a very attractive body, it would definitely rack up a lot more attractive points. I have a decent body right now and that's without ever really doing anything for it (instead, I've actually done really terrible things to it...thank god for my high metabolism and other things). It's good enough to where RIGHT NOW, if I were to go to the beach, I would be checked out by lots of girls, especially those of my age (I'm 20). I just wonder what the potential could be if I really made an effort to get a fitter body. I often see guys who have nicer bodies than me but have less attractive faces who are able to "net" more girls at a bar than I do (I say bar specifically because in that kind of place, you're worth as much as your looks. You're not going to have an intellectual conversation with people at a bar, a college one at least). Sorry to sound so superficial about everything, but I think what I said is really true. I'm not factoring in how personality can make someone more or less attractive, I'm just talking about first impressions on an aesthetical level.
