Beauty Is in the Eye of the Beholder

Wait, didn’t you just read that there’s more to attraction than empirical beauty? Yes, you did, but you can’t deny the fact that a good-looking human being attracts a lot of attention—at least initially. Some people have their specific “types” (you prefer blondes, while your friend likes dark hair), but a symmetrical, youthful face without flaws (more on those in a minute) is generally believed to be attractive.

Now, obviously, no one is perfect, and “flawed” people of all ages manage to find love. How do they do it? Is beauty really more than skin deep, or do they simply settle for what they get and make the most of it?
