The definitions of beauty, we are told by instinct and society that these are the most worthy people to date merely because of their outward appearance. I challenge the validity of this view because it doesn't take into account more important aspects within a relationship.
Now, I should preface this by saying that I understand the evolutionary purpose of physique preference. I think, however, that it is a rudimentary and archaic way of looking at love, which is far more complex than the curves of a woman or the chisel of a man.
A person who makes you smile, who has similar interests, who has similar life goals, who is fun, these are the only things that are really important. As much as we hate to admit it, beauty is temporary. A beautiful-looking person who is ugly on the inside will one day be ugly on the outside as well, but a person with a beautiful personality will have that beautiful personality beyond the youthfulness of their body.
Sometimes, I read takes, questions, and opinions that deal only with the physical aspect. The level of sophistication never delves beyond: he/she is hot, I like hot people, I'd have sex with him/her, etc. It seems that the sexual nature is the most important part of the discussion. What people seem to forget, however, is that sex encompasses a tremendously tiny fraction of a relationship.
There are so many more things that happen besides sex within a relationship. To say that beauty is even relevant in conversation, shared goals and ambitions, or spending time with your partner is ludicrous and a baseless viewpoint to take on a relationship.
I hope that people can realize, like I do, that people were made for each other not because of their sexual attractiveness, but their compatability. Maybe then there'd be less marriages that end in divorce, maybe then there'd be less cases of objectivity and celebrity idolism.
