My mother had four daughters that she taught that "pretty is as pretty does". I think that she was right. If you are doing ugly, hateful, spiteful things to other people, then it matters not how beautiful you may be on the outside. I think beauty really is in the heart. If you have a kind and loving heart and spirit, then to me, you are a beautiful person.

oh! yes deedee328 i definitely agree with you that a real beauty really comes from the heart... cause what is beauty if a persons heart is full of hate as you have said... :) have a nice day! :)

Well for many of us, when you say attractive it automatically means physical beauty whether it be a man or woman. But it is proven that true beauty is more than meets the eye! What makes a person truly attractive is when she radiates with confidence in herself and her capabilities, has a clear view of her strengths and weaknesses, but does not dwell on them, but makes her weaknesses into assets. Someone with positive outlook and good-naturedness that makes him/her endearing to everyone. That for me makes someone attractive!

Beauty. A word with much mystery. A word that many have tried to translate. Women have bought whole mountains of cosmetics, some men began to take example, and others were turned upside down to draw near to this word. And yet ... the secret is not necessarily in appearance. Of course, this has considerable merit but not all. I knew once a very beautiful girl. I looked at it and simply could not move my gaze elsewhere. It seemed amazing ... after a while I personally knew. I knew the soul, intelligence and character. And lost their luster and not only lost their luster and, moreover, it seemed he had nothing nice. Instead, another time I met a person so pleasant sight. And the person I was fortunate to know personally. After we talked, I found the character, soul, humor and intelligence that person, I felt great! I wondered how I noticed the beauty of that person, the first time.

being attractive does not equate to just being beautiful physically, being attractive is like having this aura of being happy, being sexy and being just plain attractiveness... ur X factor they say. and also when you know how to carry yourself, to be steadfast and precise. being attractive doesnt need to be beauty only... it goes beyond once hold to being physically beautiful... its what the heart is, it radiates to your outer self and people see u as attractive as what your heart is,. :D

attraction is on what we see at the moment. it is fleeting. while beautiful is lasting. not all attractive is beautiful, but beautiful is attractive. for example, a dress and make-up can make a woman attractive. she can have boys looking at her. but a beautiful woman even without make-up and good dress can always have boys looking at her.
