So do you guys believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder or is it just some politically correct statement and how do you prove this phrase? Or give an example of it.
I mean as a female in society. I definitely don't feel attractive.

Most Helpful Guy
I voted C and I have proof. (sort of). This'll be a copy and paste job.
When my high school yearbook was being created, there was a poll for "most beautiful guy/girl" that everyone filled in. Rebecca was very very sexy. Everyone assumed that she'd win. Problem was, Rebecca was a bit of a pain in the butt. She wasn't mean, but she was very self centred and superficial. Always cared about being 'perfect'.
When the poll was held, Rebecca didn't win. Infact she came 3rd. Another girl, Lisa, won hands down (from memory something like 80% of the votes). Lisa was a 'bigger' girl, not fat, but not model thin. Thing is though, she was the sweetest nicest person on the planet. Always helped out, always said hello, not up herself.
I often tell this story to girls that think guys just care about looks, but here it applies about personality too. Guys do like good looking girls, and we'll instinctually notice a sexy girl, but at the end of the day, a 'nice' girl is far better then a bitch. We'll have a one night stand with the bitch, we'll marry the nice girl.
Physical beauty is a personal thing. Go to any Imdb board, look up any female, and you'll find a bunch of posts "SHE'S HOT" followed by "SHE'S UGLY". (Ellen Page springs to mind). But I think for most people (as my example I hope shows) true beauty is physical and personality.2
