If people could see inner beauty, they wouldn’t care about the outer beauty. Since we live in a physical world, we go on appearance. I know people from all walks of life and I honestly have to say, inner beauty is what matters to me. The inner beauty is reflected on the outer beauty. This person is an all around beautiful person

Sometime the inner beauty is not reflected on the outer beauty. And this person may not have the most desirable physical features but is a beautiful person within.

Sometimes the inner beauty ruins the outer beauty. And this person is shallow, self absorbed and has nothing intelligent or nice to say but has the looks.

And then sometimes the poster person for UGLY. Self loathing, doesn't like anything about the world.

Unfortunately, the world sees physical well being instead of emotional. The concept that people try to drill into others is that if you love yourself, then it should show on the physical plane as well. So do we love ourselves, the way we look and the way we are?

Appearance vs. Personality, to me it is all about personality, but to the world it is appearance. WHAT IS IT FOR YOU?

Unfortunately people both men and women fall in love with the outside, the looks. It seems to me that men instantly feel chemistry or want to get to know a woman simply based on what they look like, even if only having met that person for a brief time. The beautiful women will get that chance. A women who isn't beautiful on the outside despite what she thinks of herself wouldn't even get a second look. A man won't instantly think there is chemistry there AND that is sad.

I wish I lived in a world that valued someone's character, personality and good inner being over outer beauty. Why can't we live in a world where the more inner character, personality, respectful to others you are the more beautiful you become on the outside.

I don't know what if a baby as all babies are, are born beautiful, then as they learn and grown and learn who they are or want to be that their outside looks change for the more beautiful or less beautiful. Murderers, child molesters etc. would all be ugly, evil looking have scar or what not to show people not to mess with them or be around them. Instead sometimes it's the opposite.

Then I think maybe I chose to live my life this time around as an ugly fat duckling. Because even when I lost weight and tried to work on my outside, I never did shine enough for men to want to get to know me better. I never shined enough for a man to want to wait for me or who would fight for me. I have never been loved by a man BUT I have so much love to give.
So maybe I've lived my beautiful lives already OR maybe I need to learn to love my ugly self so that in my next life I come back a little cuter :)

I think that what makes you fall in love with a person is his thoughts and character. The inside beauty is what matters most to me! I don't want to fall for a guy that has the looks but he's an *******. Inner beauty tells verything about a guy, who he really is a person/characher. Looks are NOT everything, with time looks fade and your inner beauty never changes. I'd like to fall in love with your inner beauty and not your looks. I hope this changes your mind about appearance!

Just be yourself, don't try to be something or someone you are not. People like a person who is honest, and knows who they are. I am sure you are a wonderful person, the right one will come along for you. Just be patient..By the way I found a website that give you prizes for your opinions here is the topic about this:<br />

I'd like to believe personality is more important than looks. I don't want to prejudge those beautiful people because maybe they have both qualities, but mostly, beauty and brains don't come together.

If you don't like whats on the inside you'll never be happy regardless of what the exterior looks like! But that being said I think anyone can improve their appearance atleast slightly by dressing better, walking up straight and offcourse building confidence which will influence both the inside and outside! And by doing this it shows prides in oneself! <br />

Balance is important, you should want to look at someone when having a deep conversation with them!
