How do you define "handsome" or "beautiful?"


For example, I have had people tell me that someone is handsome and I look at them and think, "Huh?" They look very nice, sort of...but handsome? I don't think so. Apparently, beauty really is in the eye of the beholder? In my mind, top model is beautiful and the rest are nice looking or not as much. How about you? And yes, I fully realize that beauty is only skin deep. But technically, what is handsome or beautiful to you?

    What a lovely compliment, Paula. Thank you!! You are so right---it is that "second glance" that "alerts" us. I appreciate that you brought up healthy living. It makes all the difference. Honestly, I hate exercise. Guess it's time to change that. Lol

    Your love for your wife is inspiring, Taze. Indeed, I agree that it is impossible to separate inner beauty and outer beauty. Your answer describes the character of a "beautiful" man.

    Hi Manatita,

    No question that physical beauty is temporary and spiritual beauty is forever. Your prose and symbolism is very nice.

    Lol. Not the most flattering thing anyone has ever said to me. I'll chalk this up to "a generalization." Ha! But seriously, just make sure your dates don't know how you feel about your "happiness," Ayaz, and nobody will get hurt. ;)

    Hello Old Poolman.....I was referring to outside appearance only, and I agree with you about the other. The question came up in my mind, recently, because a mom said her sons are really handsome. I didn't say so, but they are not!! Thus, I wonder...
