Do Looks Matter? How Do You Define Beauty: Looks are what others perceive as beautiful or attractive, like art is something that people like to look at, they get positive…
Studies show that good-looking people earn more in the work place as well enjoy more friends and sexual partners.
Society assumes that what is beautiful is good. Check out some of the African Celebrities that the society is obsessed with their looks, from their talents, Boobs, hips, height, Hair, talent and more.
There are universally agreed upon attributes that humans in general find attractive, but for the most part the culture, time period that you live in dictates the level of attractiveness.
It is a scientifically proven fact that men place higher premium on appearance than women.
This is a result of what millions of years of evolution has taught them – men have not evolved much since the cavemen.
When it comes to attraction, their inner “metal detectors” still look for the same cues that evolutions says are beneficial to survival of their genes– fertility which is indicated by the attributes of youth such as full lips, radiant hair, smooth skin, clear eyes, muscle tone, firm ample bosoms, breast size, hips, facial and body symmetry, and good waist to hip ratio.
Some of the ideal attractive beauty with brains described above in no particular order:
These attributes are also what accentuate the differences between men and women, the more pronounced the difference the bigger the attraction, men are less attracted to ‘boyish’ women and more attracted to dainty feminine women, damsel in distress…
Having worked with several dating services, one of my findings is that younger men prefer women who are their age or a few years younger, as men get older; especially past the age of forty they desire larger age gaps from their mates; perhaps their way of hanging on to their own youth.
Men are hierarchica, and for many the only factor that overrides evolution is someone who validates their alpha male status, and the greatest evidence of a man’s social worth is a woman that is considered beautiful by the standards of the society that he lives in.
The more secure a man is the less he cares about what others think of his choice of a mate, he’s able to create his own ideal…
Our society in general unconsciously attributes many positive traits to good looking people. Many studies have found that people assume that good looking people are more honest, intelligent and happy.
Looking good works for both the dating scene and life in general, studies show that good looking people are often looked upon favourably in employment and earn more than their less attractive counterparts.
The great news is that many of the universal traits of beauty are attainable by every human being – some have it naturally others have to work a little bit harder at it. Healthy looking skin is universally associated with attractiveness in both men and women.
Since women place more emphasis on men’s status and ability to provide and access resources that will ensure their survival, it is no surprise that the features that women find attractive in men are those that indicate protection, status and strength. Most cultures perceive men with broad shoulders, arrow waists and nice chests as being attractive.
Taller men are considered attractive; an erect posture communicates confidence, status and strength. It is also believed that taller men tend to have high levels of testosterone.
Men with strong broad jaws and brows are also considered attractive…
Most cultures consider slender women attractive, there are so many attractive size 10 or 12 women who think they need to lose weight, when in fact most men do not consider women of this size as equally attractive.
Just as many men do not find over obese women attractive they do not find anorexic ones attractive either – being a healthy weight that is proportionate to your height is prescription for success in attracting the right one. It doesn’t matter what size you are, if you look like the Tasmanian devil it’s hard to find a long line of suitors….
Most women want to be wanted and appreciated for their internal riches, and unfortunately men have no interest in learning of those internal riches if they can not get past the external, you can accept this as reality and a fact of life or you can choose to do nothing to be your best and live in the delusion that it’s what’s on the inside that matters –
Perception of beauty is different in different parts of the world…Some prefer all natural beauty, others prefer plastic surgeries enhance beauty. We say whatever tickles your fancy!
There is no one standard of beauty, so being your best is going to attract the right one….
Remember attraction is about instinct not intellect, so no particular Waist to hip ratio or Body Mass Index is fixed, but having clean skin that is free of gunk is within your control.
Perception of beauty is different in different parts of the world. Some societies, (especially in Africa) define a woman’s beauty by how curvaceous they are, the size of their boobs, hips, hair, skin colour, face first even before their talent.
