Is beauty really in the eye of the beholder or is there a standard?
What people commonly term beauty is difficult, we live in a world which is influenced by the Media and TV to define what beauty is? When the Great Plague happened Fat people were in and in Africa as they lived longer. In our society were food is in abundance. Thin is in.

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Favour is another word for Charm, Someone who is charming is hiding something.
Beauty is a thing that is temporary as it will last but a moment.
Even personality if someone is nice or hot? How do you define Nice you do not know who they are?

Jer 17:9 – Show Context
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Do we have to have a plumbline on what beauty is?

One, there is a study of it called aestethics. Two, no beauty is objective, I’m sure everyone finds people in animal costumes as sexy as me.

How is physical beauty in the eyes of the beholder?
I am taking a sociology class and we are talking about being physically attractive.
My point is how come some people attract a wider variety of people than others?
Usually those who are widely considered attractive receive different treatment from those who are widely considered less physically attractive.
I do not think everyone agrees who is pretty and who is not but why are other people treated better than others if beauty is not somewhat universal?
Some people have been received attention from the opposite sex all their lives while others have barely managed to get their first bf/gf in their early 20s?

As creatures of instinct, we prefer people who show no signs of deformity or illness, and have a good deal of symmetry to their face. That is usually considered ‘pretty’ because they are pleasant to look at.

But that quote doesn’t deal with overarching terms, but personal and individual cases. Beauty to Jake can only be decided by Jake. If you find someone ugly, and someone else find’s them beautiful, you’re both right. It’s about the individual’s right to choose, not what (as a species) we still have programmed in us.
