What Do You Define As Good Looking?

And how does that measure up to what society define's as good looking? The media, and culture at large today likes to dictate what we should recard as not only good looks, but see these as being more important.

In the time that i have been alive, i have learned that these so called beautiful people are empty inside or are missing that magic inside of them that connects me to them. There is more to life, and love and attraction than just looks itself. Looks no longer truly matter to me, they do count to a point i dont deny that. however the measure of a man and a woman matters more to me than if they have abs, big boobs or if they are blonde, brown or wtv. i love with my heart, not my ****.

i'm tired of this day and age when beauty is held to such a high standard and what do people do? look excatly the same. isn't their beauty in orginality anymore? who wants  to be a copy? i dont and i'm not attracted to copies or cardboard cut outs. give me a woman or man who has life, passion, a deepness and richness to them, a fountain of humainty and of inner beauty than the plastic dolls lined up  along the shelves.

its like how growing up we played with action figures and barbies, we played with plastic dolls. seem like these days, most ppl can't break out of that.

i'm a minority..for now though i think.

Nicely put :) i agree totally! xXx

I agree with u. Good looks arent important like personality is

really well said! I can just aggree with you!

I agree with you on how society and the media tries (and often succeeds) to control what we define as "good looking" in a person.  But I also think that not everyone lets the media fully control us in that aspect.  Most people have a certain type of person that they tend to be attracted to, and I suppose that's part of the media trying to tell us what psychical characteristics we should be attracted to.  But not everyone is shallow, not everyone thinks that the partner they should be looking for should look like a Barbie doll.  I think attractiveness and the definition of "good looking" can sometimes be relative.  Not everyone wants a guy who has "nice abs" or a girl who has large breasts.  Some people do look at the personality first, and if they like a person's passions, depth, inner beauty, etc. then they can be attracted to their looks, regardless of whether they look like what the media tells us we should like in a person's appearance.  I for one certainly care more about personality than looks.  I think that perceptions of beauty can still vary from person to person, without the media telling us what to think is beautiful in a person.
