I love good looking people and find the human race to be exceptionally beautiful. I don't think there is anyone who is truly ugly but my ability to appreciate it is what changes.
For me personally, my looks are very important and tied up in myself worth. If I like myself I treat myself nicely and buy beautiful clothing and spend time on my appearance. If I don't like myself, I punish myself by wearing old clothes and not doing hair and make up. It affects how I feel very deeply even if I am not always consciously aware of it.
As much as I love fashion and make up, the over the top airbrushed photos aren't what I consider real beauty, they are a collaborative fantasy to enjoy.
I like looking at interesting photos of people, children and old people.
In my friends looks again are very important. I seem to choose friends who look and act similiar to me. I love being around people who glow with health and happiness and that tends to come with their own sense of style and self reflected in their looks.
Lovers - looks are paramount. If I don't feel physically attracted to you or chemistry I don't want to go there. I am very rigid, I only like people with blonde hair and not too much taller than me. As ridiculous as it is, I am just not happy unless I like the look of my partner.
