To me the evolutionary biology notion of beauty makes the most sense. It is all about reproduction. Men want women that look healthy and capable of
getting easily pregnant and women want men that look healthy and or strong.
Off topic, but not totally: Often evolutionary biology is used to explain why men are so promiscious. But a lot a people do not seem to know that
women are as promiscious; there strategy is to have a relationship with a man with a solid position in society AND to have a beautiful lover with who
they also conceive children.
Actually, there has been done quite some research and the obvious again has been reaffirmed. People like women to have feminine faces (small nose,
small jaw, large eyes) and men to have male faces (just the opposite). We like women to be shorter than men, to have an hourglass figure while we like
men to have narrow hips and a V shaped torso. Yes of course there are exceptions.
With regard to somebody's personality, I am quite capable of differentiating between looks and character. So I can feel that somebody is nice yet
ugly and vice versa.
