"Pretty" is often directly linked to symmetry of features -- and its assessment is part of the "toolkit" provided to us after millions of years of evolution to assess a mate. Symmetry is read as a Quality Control feature -- good breeding stock -- as they say in the livestock business.

Even mother dogs and cats will roll out out of their litter the babe that is deemed "not fit or ugly". It is a sad and scary world we live in, but only the strong suvive.

Why men prefer pretty faces?

Because the alternative is ugly faces.

I should get a Nobel for this one!

Actually, beauty can be measured. A lot of things we deem attractive in life conform to the Phi ratio. From facial beauty, to body beauty, birds, insect, plants, everything.

There is actually a phi mask you can put over your own face to determine how HOT STUFF you are. No matter what race you are, if you match the mask, you're most likely a ten.

YES...watching the History Channel finally paid off! Here I thought I'd never use this knowledge.

Phi...google it.

The bible has the story of Potiphar's wife trying to seduce Joseph who was "handsome in form and appearance" and said she said to him "Lie with me".

Looks like women can lose it at the sight of a handsome face, just like men can at sight of a pretty one.

Humans, all our feet are made of clay.

I'd be, uhhhhh, pretty much seduced if some winsome wench murmured "f-ck me" in my ear, but "Lie with me"? I'd probably be thinking she had forgotten the exact punchline from that Pinochio joke where Snow White is riding is tongue. But 's okay, I'd still "get it". Lol. I think we all need to move past that King James version, anyway.

whytwater, that was from the New American Std Version, not much unlike the KJV.


The New Living Translation shows Gen. 39:6b-7
"Joseph was a very handsome and well-built young man, and Potiphar’s wife soon began to look at him lustfully. “Come and sleep with me,” she demanded."

Attractiveness is subjective. Meaning it depends on the person viewing the face, and the person owning the face.

Beautiful face combined with a self centred, selfish attitude the beauty tends to fade fast. The average face with an amazing personality, sexuality and a zest for life I bet will hold the longer attention in the end.

Of course perhaps as an average bbw, I am talking myself into believing that lol.

You left out a very important part of that study, which is babies are attracted to symmetry in faces...symmetry= beauty(?)/interest to babies.
