    What is the criteria for being classified as beautiful/handsome?   Are only a small minority of people would be deemed beautiful/handsome?   What is beauty anyway?  How does beauty increases the quality of one's life?

      The criteria for Beautiful is it describing a girl meeting the individual's judgment of a girl's looks and the same goes for handsome except it is for boys.They are society's way of ensuring genders remain separated.

      According to scientific research, babies of all cultures and nations are drawn to big eyes and high check bones, and this is regarded as beauty. Same with small waist and big hips.

        This is true.

    My daughter is one the most beautiful women I have ever seen. She looks and acts like a Latino Mayrlin Monroe and creative like Lady Gaga. Good looks will get you in the door, although it is the good work that will keep you there. Plus people trust you more, because ugly people get more criminal profiled. Glad for that, she is so daring.

    I assume you mean physical beauty. Everyone has his/her own standards of beauty, therefore, physical beauty is in the eye of the beholder. My mother had a collection of lids off little ice cream cups that had photos of Hollywood beauties on them. They were from the early 1940s. I used to sit for hours and admire those glamorous women, knowing that I could never grow up to look like that. My mother was a natural blond and certainly didn't look like the women on the cup lids. She wore very little makeup, just face powder and lipstick, but she was considered beautiful. Beautiful, not glamorous. So basically, there is a difference.
    Anyway, back then as a little girl I had no idea that thanks to Maybelline, Coty, Revlon, Max Factor, and now many other makeup companies, any woman can look like that. My husband used to photograph models and knows a lot about glamor and makeup. He said photographers of models preferred that the woman's face be very plain so the makeup artist could paint on a glamorous face, just like on a plain canvas. He also said that some of the most beautiful women were just ugly on the inside, so their looks didn't matter. So, as far as women go, our standards of beauty are somewhat skewed.
    Guys then were kind of a different story, but today they are getting facelifts, getting cheek implants, and wearing makeup, too. So are our standards of male beauty changing? I don't know, but I was looking at some men's clothes in an advertisement, and the males were all sickening looking to me. They all looked like preppy wannabees with 5 o'clock shadow.

    My point is that anyone can be beautiful if they have the money to pay for the work. Physical beauty can pave the way in life, but then most people have to produce once they get their foot in the door. At one time overweight people were at a great disadvantage, but with our discrimination laws, and the fact that we are not as quick to judge them anymore, I think that more and more of them are becoming successful.
    Today clothing manufacturers are taking a different approach by using plus-sized models to model plus-sized clothes, probably due to popular demand. I just wonder when they are going to start using petite women to model petite clothes. I feel like I'm still being discriminated against. We are just "miniature beauties", and I have my Clinique to prove it. LOL

      Don't buy beauty magazine, they will make you feel ugly.

      My daughter is not vain about her physical beauty. Yet, she is obsess with attention and is such a ham. She uses it to collect alot of art bussiness. We are both are most obsess for the beauty of the arts. She is following her fathers foot steps. Best creation I ever made was her.

    Do you contend that there are people who are physically beautiful while others are physically average & some even being classified as physically unattractive?

      Difficult to rate someones physical beauty because their inside beauty is more important. It may have to take a whole beauty contest to judge. Trump looks good for 72, yet his insides,  feels like demonic monkeys from hell.

      In public I would not rate People's Beauty like Trump with a number.  Like Trump thinks the Statue of Liberty is a 4 or maybe a 5 and he wants to dismantle her, because she attracts emigrates.
      Of course his wife and daughter are a 10.

      I'm quilty in my mind for rating peoples by numbers. I think am a 6 on a good day, 8. I date above my looks at a 7 or 8.
      Marylin Monroe is a 9, from the physical side, don't believe in 10s.

      GMW, all judgments are based on the observer(s), beauty and ugly are both judgments which man are told not to do. I have seen people who are by my standard physically attractive whose attitude naked me want to shun. I'm willing to accept an attractive attitudes over the physical beauty any day.

        As someone who had all the looks in the world, I have to tell you, I would take a man who didn't notice my looks and come onto me because of them any day. Unfortunately, even at 68 (because I look substantially younger than I am), I am still approached because "You are a beautiful woman, and I am attracted to you."

        When you ask them what they like about you, it's always the looks. So I have a very, very bad attitude towards me. You mention my looks, and you're dung. smile

          Give me a mind worthy praise, one that sees 360 degrees of everything inside and out they will have my heart from here to eternity. Look at the first poem in my hub "Freedom Discussed In Poetry" and you will see how whether they accept it or not I will love them.

            You just made me laugh! Comments that will totally turn my heart on include "You are a wise person." "I noticed your kindness..." "I liked what you wrote."

            When I was living in London, a woman said to me, "Tessa, men can't see beyond looks like yours."

            I have never forgottent that, but it did teach me more than anything to value those that did. (They do exist.) I cherish them.

              Do you all contend that it is quite immature that our society focuses on physical appearance instead of character & intelligence?   It is quite sad that beautiful/handsome people are treated better, even adulated in our society.  Studies show that beautiful/handsome people earn more than their less attractive counterparts despite having the same educational & qualification levels.   Even beautiful/handsome children are treated better by their teachers & peers than children who are average looking.

                Absolutely. For most of my life I have felt totally invisible, as if I have no inside. I have been on okcupid for about four years. Every single guys starts off with "You are very attractive, and I am attracted to you." Or something in that vein.

                My profile is detailed. It says that I am looking for humanists, atheists, progressives. Mostly it is Christian men who respond who ignore every single thing I have said - no matter how obviously imcompatible we are.

                They will say things like "I liked your profile," and when I ask them what they liked about my profile, they say things like "You are very attractive."

                That's about when they get unmatched. Not interested. In four years, not one person has asked me about dancing, traveling, climate change, geology, or anything about my numerous interests.

                I am waiting for the day a man actually notices that I am more than my physical appearance.

                  I was on OkCupid until about a year ago and decided to let it go (I don't pay on dating sights, it was just to see who on it are intellectuals) I might have been able to connect with you, Tess. Most girls don't like "My Proposal" (I invited you to read), in the 38 years since I wrote it when I recite it they think it is beautiful but only one said she accepts its conditions.

                Physical beauty is temporary, where inside beauty is forever.

                  Not with the advent of plastic surgery.  With surgical enhancements, physical beauty can last a ……..VERY LONG TIME.

                    But with a mind to match, GMW, it is fine. I did find one once Washington Square Park in NYC, who was married but respected my "NatureBoy-ness" as if I was well dressed and floating in money. She even loved My Proposal when I recited it.

                    Surgery last til their face caves in.

                    Jay Leno said at the Oscars.

                    Nice to see new faces, same people, but new faces.

                    A person asked me if I had plastic surgery to look good.
                    Only nutrition and exercise, no knifes please.

                    Human beings are attracted to beauty. I know I am, and science certainly supports that.

                    We love beauty in arts, Mother Nature, other human beings, etc.

                    Ironically, though, that beauty never fulfills us completely.

                    We need more than beauty.

    THAT IS IT TESS!!! Going to write a poem. 

    Beautiful eyes, look for the good in others,
    Artist eyes find beauty in sis & brothers

    Everything is beautiful, diversity is strength,
    Unique Genuine kindness, beauty in length

    Sacred kindness is more than Religions,
    Talented so so, if mean, your a pretty pigeon

    Beauty of love makes all things stronger, Little act of kindness, it last much longer.

    True beauty is actions & inspire kindness,
    If not given away, your leader is mindless

    Kindness daily lives, is beauty stemmed,
    Love & kindness flows, it's not us or them

    Love glues all earthling in pure beauty,
    Kindness makes us whole even the fruities

    Health is wealth, enhanced beauty & love,
    No health, no life, yet all 3 fits like a glove.

      Nice try, but she I believe kindness to be one of the greatest human attributes (along with wisdom and strength of character), it is an attributes. It is not physiologically beautiful.
