Beauty is in the eye of......?

Hello beautiful people. On another site I see there is an option for you to state how attractive you think you are.

I have a bit of an issue with this as self praise is no recommendation. Your perception of yourself may be totally at odds with what others may think.

What does this say about us? If, for example, I said I was very attractive would I be blowing my own trumpet. Conversely if I said I was unattractive would I be putting myself down?

When considering your own attractiveness what is it you look for? If you find your self very attractive do you unconsiously look for partners who look like yourself?

Where does self esteem fit into the equation? Is it vane to think of oneself as attractive? Is vanity good or bad?

Is beauty truly skin deep? I think not. I think it is much deeper than that.

What say you?

Thanks for reading beautiful people. Hope to read your responses soon.


D and B.

I agree! I think beautiful is a shallow word. I despise people who look for beauty over personality and overall demeanour. I would rather have a feral looking friend who loved me for me, was there to support me and valued me as a friend. This also extends to my husband as he is my true friend above all else. I fall in love with him everyday purely based on his actions and less about the looks - though they aint to shabby either! lol its all a matter of choice. i simply would rather the full package. the missus

D & B , when your as ugly and evil as i am , beauty is definitely not a skin thing...rather what makes a person tick , and personality etc...

I agree with everyone, Beauty is more than skin deep and I for one do Not judge people on looks. I take people as they are and at face value. Personality I think is the best gauge on beauty However we all have different personalities also. Everyone has different views on what is beautiful to them. I have had to answer this Question on another site in my profile and was stumped with what to choose, In the end I put average because I don't consider myself to be Attractive or Unattractive. Excellent Question Centralviccpl4u

I agree, great question CVC.

I am frequently told by people that i am beautiful, but for me, i dont find any security in that, as i dont perceive myself as being beautiful. I find things about myself that i dont like and that i think are ugly.

If i think a person is beautiful, i will tell them. As you say, beauty is far more than skin deep. For me to tell someone that they are beautiful, i have to see them as a whole person. I want to see their looks, their personality, their lives. Beauty is everything, not just the skin deep.

We all find things about ourselves we r uncomfortable with... i for instance would like bigger boobs, but i dont really believe in plastic surgery soooooooo i just complain about mine and whing when i see Trannies with better boobs then me lol.....
But in saying that, i dont think i am vane in saying that i know i am beautiful in certain respects... im not talking about my girlie bits, they do not define me... beauty isnt about what you see.. anyone who limits beauty to the physical is shallow and will die alone... beauty is about how you feel, how you act, how you interact and who you are... after all, our bodies r merely vessels to take us thru this life, to be discarded when we move to the next
