Do you have to be beautiful to be loved?

Hello meggggg, I don't think this statement is right. It doesn't mean that if you are not pretty, you are not deserved to be loved. Love knows no boundaries and you can't choose who do you want to love. Whether you are beautiful or ugly, you deserve to love and to be loved!

Yes! There is no such thing as an ugly person. Of course it may not draw the initial hello from a stranger but love is an inner emotion. If you are physically unnatrctive in your own eyes you may not be to another person. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There is a soulmate out there for everyone. Not everybody is shallow so if you aren't the brightest flower in the bunch you must find someone who likes those abstract flowers. There is someone out there for everyone.

I believe that there are people who are less attractive. I believe that attractiveness of an individual is not only on the way they physically appear. There are people who are attractive because of their personality and wit. For those people who are not so attractive physically, I think they have to focus more on their strenght if they are good in public speaking or in technical writing or in other things. They just have to focus on it because in time they will find their true love while enjoying their passion. Remember, Physical appearance deteriorates in time but the talent and values one has... always improve in time.

Actually, being a realistic person, I'd say very little. However, Im not saying its not possible. There are many of us who would not bother about the physical appearance and go for the nature of a person, or would just love the person for what he or she is. Such cases are rare. The ugly people have very little chances of being admired. Yes, they can come up academically and be admired, but thats it. I guess I am being pretty down to earth and telling you the truth.

everybody will tell that external beauty is not important...but if u take up their case, they need a beautiful girl or boy to be his\her pair.. outside we people will tell that external appearances are always fake, but really we do not follow that.. u can see over my photo, i'm some what smart and have look cute, but i dont have any girl friend, because i rejected all the proposals, because everybody come to me because of the skin color, so i decided not to commit with anybody..

I believe in the philosophy that you cannot and do not choose who you fall in love with. If they are the most stunning person in the world, you still might detest them, and if they had no arms, no legs, were blind and deaf, you still might fall in love with them. Attraction does initiate a relationship a lot of the time but sometimes, and especially in my case, it's personality first.

Every people deserved to be loved. The question is just how they get to be loved, and what kind of love they tend to get? Beautiful ones can easily get to be loved because they are beauty in nature and people love beautiful things. Not so beautiful ones can also be loved but they have to be beautiful on the inside for people to see how beautiful they are from within. I actually don't really understand what i am writing but i hoped you can. P/S: I am not the beautiful one, but i do get a lot of love!!!

The question is a bit vague. Each person is unique and 'ugliness' would have to be defined first: generally, people tend to project their own beauty and their own ugliness on what and who they see. Ugliness, like beauty, is in the eyes of the beholder. We also live in a time when unrealistic expectations are projected on women as well as men regarding their physical appearance: so much so that models have to be photoshopped in order to fit within a so-called ideal of beauty that is both impossible and unhealthy.

If you are talking about physical beauty, then my answer would be no. But, if you are talking about inner beauty, then yes. How can someone love you if you don't view yourself as a beautiful person, at least on the inside. A TRUE beauty is someone who sincerely cares about others, treats others with kindness, respect & love. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and inner beauty is far more important than physical beauty. After all, physical beauty will fade over time. Inner beauty does not.

I will not deny that beauty definitely creates a positive first impression but its never the ultimate in love. How do you otherwise explain so many love marriages and happy couples around us, who are not only in love with each other, but are enjoying each other’s company for so many years. Rather, I think beautiful people are rather a risky choice…I mean they are aware of their beauty and demand and like to be admired by people around them. Its but natural that such people may not always be satisfied with a single partner throughout their life. Ugly people or plain and simple types are much better in that way. And of course, after the initial glamour of love wears off, its companionship that matters most…and ugly people are as likely to be wonderful companions as beautiful people.

I really disagree. There is no ugly people actually. They are beautiful or handsome in there own little way. God did not create something that is not beyond his beautiful creations, thats why everything on earth is perfect. If it is not perfect or beautiful it comes ones attitude.
