Your Ugly, I'm Beautiful
What is Beauty?
What is beauty? Wikipedia states “Beauty is a characteristic of a person, animal, place, object, or idea that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure, meaning, or satisfaction. Beauty is studied as part of aesthetics, sociology, social psychology, and culture. An "ideal beauty" is an entity which is admired, or possesses features widely attributed to beauty in a particular culture, for perfection.”
I look at many women and often see little inner beauty but does that mean they are not beautiful? In today’s civilization, society construct beauty on characteristics as wikipedia describes in the paragraph above. It places definition on the outer shell verses the inner core of the soul. “I feel” that as human beings we have set ethics on what beauty defines.
Ratios and Proportions...
Let’s start with proportion and the face; does mathematics have anything to do with beauty? I believe it does the Physical Attraction depends on ration. If you look at the Leonardo da Vinci’s “Virtruvian Man” it demonstrates the Golden Ratio.
Golden Ration: (Foot to Navel): (Naval to Head)
The Golden Ration is based on the Fibonacci Numbers, where every number is in sequence, after the second number, is the sum of the previous 2 numbers.
Ex: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21…..etc.
The aspects of the human face establish the Golden Ratio. The measurement of the length of the nose, the position in were the eyes sockets sit and the length of the chin, all comply with the visible features of the Golden Ratio.

The Physical Attraction of the Woman body
Then we head a little lower on the body and we find the breast. What makes a breast beautiful?
Size, is apparently the most factored importance in breast attractiveness. Do we base the popularity of breast on surgical augmentation or evolution? Well in today’s camaraderie it is based off of surgical augmentation. Is size the main factor when assessing whether an individual is attractive? There are a number of key ratios that are factored in to breast attractiveness.
One, being the bust to under bust, the projection of the lower part of the bust is a visual innuendo for appeal.
Second, being the bust to the waist ratio which is ideal to be 1.3.
Breasts that are small do not facilitate the perceptible key to ignite the pleasure centers of the brain associated with looking at the beautiful form.
Shape, Breast shapes are also factors in making the breast attractive. The attractive breast should have an attractive slope.
The waist, oh yes the waist what is the attractive ratio of the waist to hips? The ratio would be 0.7 which translates a 26 inch waist and a 36 inch hip.
The importance of shape rather than size in derrieres is symmetry, form and structure. All come together when looking at some ones bum.Curvature is also detected in attractiveness. So I have heard.
It is well known that the legs have an overall good shape from top to bottom, but what makes them beautiful?The muscles in the upper thigh area should be firm and toned as well as the area right above the knee.The leg cleavage is what is noticed first: right below the knee to the top of the ankle.
I have provided the basics on what today’s civilization find beautiful on the outside.
What is inner beauty and do we all have it?
I believe some more than others have inner beauty. We sometimes allow our outer beauty to mask our self awareness and self satisfaction. Self satisfaction within is richer than the mirrored image we see on a daily basis. We all tend to get so involved with what the average woman should look like and standardize ourselves to fit that mold that the male civilization place. Inner beauty defines your mind, body, and soul; it comes as a whole package.
Least to say we look the way we are. The expressions we tend to carry on our face normally reflect the way we feel on the inside. The exterior can be disguised but what about the interior? Inner beauty is found in peace, solitude, harmony, love, and composure.
A Personal Experience!
I met a guy online and we apparently had physical attraction through the photos exchanged, so we arranged to meet in person. He picked me up from my home and we had several drinks and hung out. I thought we had a great time. Well over the days we talked and he kind of just faded out we had each other on Face Book but really didn’t talk. Well he messaged me one day and asked how I was doing and what I had been up too. So we exchanged a conversation and during our conversation he expressed that he wasn’t physically attracted to me because of my weight so that kind of didn’t stick to well with me so we ended our conversation and I thought wow, how shallow could he be. I had already started up a work out plan and diet because I was not comfortable with myself any more, but he wasn’t aware of it yet! So I started posting pictures of me a bit slimmer, and I had changed my appearance hair color, make up a so forth. Well I started to notice the attention he started feeding me and was like what’s up with him. I thought he wasn’t interested?
This just proved to me that my outer beauty mattered more than my inner beauty. I am smart, intellectual, loving, caring, and I carry a big heart. None of that mattered to him though the only thing he noticed was my looks and that was it.
I felt a little down by it because it crushed my ego, pride and made me feel a little self conscious. I expressed how he made me feel but it didn’t matter because it was mind over matter. Did he feel a little dumb, I guarantee he did…
With that I conclude what my thought process on inner and outer beauty is thanks for reading…..
