How is physical beauty in the eyes of the beholder?

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.

What’s the difference between physical beauty and sexual beauty?
Some people have physical beauty and don’t have sexual beauty some vice versa.
PS: Sexual beauty is related for men to have muscles(to be sexy) and for women to have shapes(sorry for the rude word don’t anger on me)…to be sexy.
Physical beauty is related to all the parts of the body, to body as a whole.

Can you tell me the difference between them?
