    Is it only in the eye of the beholder?

    Yes, unfortunately though, that eye is heavily bombarded by the media.

    Absolutely. Appeal is all relative.

    Not my inner eye.

    Did I ever say how much I love your pussy?

    I guess so, to some extent. A very large extent, that is, but there ist definately beyond which anyone would say it isn't beauty anymore.

    On the other hand, the perception of beauty varies a lot, depending on cultural and ethnical background. In countries with a majority of black-haired women and men, blond women and men usually get higher beauty ratings, and vice versa for more fair-haired populations.

    On the other hand, beauty in specific cases remains in the eye of the beholder. Some find tall women attractive, other find them repulsive. Some like tattoos, others feel offended by them or consider them as ugly. Not a few guys think Britney Spears or Paris Hilton are beauties, others remain composed and consider them trash. But except for a very small number of guys, the majority would consent that a woman 5' short, 280 pounds heavy, with hairloss, uneven eyes and teeth missing is not a beauty.

    It is physical too! Some people are beautiful to the majority of people! They always were, even before the media existed.

    Dongalong - I am amazed - but I think I preferred the milkshakes.

    My Mistress' Eyes Are Nothing Like The Sun (Sonnet 130)
    by William Shakespeare


    My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
    Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
    If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
    If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
    I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
    But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
    And in some perfumes is there more delight
    Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
    I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
    That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
    I grant I never saw a goddess go;
    My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
    And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
    As any she belied with false compare.

    There has been loads of study done on this and the outcome has been that regardless of cultural preferences the unanimous trait that characterized beauty was bilateral symmetry.

    Yes, we do not appeal to everybody.

    The great thing to me is natural charms of a person bcause even if we do not find them beautiful initialy, their natural charming ways are a pleasure do have around.

    The way people carry themselves is very attractive and 'attractiviness baskets' is very appealing to me.

    Thank you, the Mind.

    Love is blind, perhaps.

    A lot of folks would give a sigh of relief if Paris Hilton and beauty touched, and be it just for a moment, and would annihilate. Would be worth to sacrifice one beautiful item to get rid of that skank.

    Well, you can still put a burning cigar to it, and use it as flamethrower in case there's a burglar.

    I'll get you her CD then.

    Don't push it - I am sure she has a price to come round and kiss your ass.
