I think Riddle would have been a person who manipulated people to get what he wanted. Charming people was not really a magical skill and would work just as well on muggles. Riddle already had rudimentary control over magic to cause people pain. Having such an ability would have made him quite successful in the muggle world. Also, there would be the added danger of uncontrolled magic exploding out of him when he was feeling strong emotions.
All in all, whether he had magic or not, Riddle would have been an extremely dangerous person to deal with.
