  1. A necessary condition for beauty is still intelligence. Only when this condition is met, an attractive appearance can be called not just sexy, but beautiful. I think everyone has experienced great disappointment when they are first charmed by someone's good looks, and then witness ignorance, stupidity, or dishonesty. After all this, you can only call the person you are observing beautiful in the context of their sexuality or typical stereotypes of attractiveness. Thus, beauty and its perception are subjective phenomena that exist primarily in our consciousness.

    At the same time, intellectuality implies not only the ability to count differential equations in your mind. This is a very complex set, which also includes emotional intelligence, empathy, tact, a sense of humor, friendly irony, the ability to forgive and avoid petty revenge, intelligence, a sense of beauty (love of art), and a friendly attitude towards others.

    Only when our inner needs are met can we move on to the second level-the level of physical beauty. Although it is secondary to inner beauty, it is also very important and absolutely natural for a person as an organism that combines biological and social nature. The perception of physical beauty is of an evolutionary nature. That is why, for example, women with large hips are traditionally considered more attractive (because large hips are preferable in terms of childbearing, and therefore reproduction of the species).

    It is very important that even external beauty-attractiveness has deep roots in internal beauty. This is evidenced by the extremely important importance of the face (faces as “mirrors of the soul”), because facial expressions and gaze most reflect our current way of thinking. It is impossible to get strong feelings for a person whose face is repugnant to you.

    Physical attractiveness (sexuality) the female body (neck, chest, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, legs and arms) is a perfect complement to all of the above. This is the icing on the cake. But without the cake, it doesn't mean much.

    It is also important to point out two significant points.

    1. People are real and have a number of flaws. At the same time, each person, if he / she does not harm others, has the right to his / her own shortcomings. We have no right to edify anyone. You need to learn to accept a person for who they are. But to show a person a positive example, to try to open up new opportunities for them is a blessing. Therefore, you should not blame your neighbor for his (her) internal or external flaws. Better try to create a more intelligent and healthy environment around him(her), praise every positive event, whether it's another book you read or a kilogram of weight lost. Demonstrate your thirst for improvement combined with your ability to forgive people for their mistakes. And don't be too serious when you can relax.

    2. External attractiveness, due to its secondary nature, is very mobile. You don't need to immediately reject those who don't exactly meet your attractiveness criteria. Repeated interesting communication with a pleasant person will very soon make you perceive his(her) appearance differently.

    Sorry for the graphomancy 🙂 I am not a philosopher, so I am not giving a scientific answer here, but only my everyday idea. It turned out to be quite verbose and left the feeling that I missed a lot in the answer. I hope someone else can point out some other important aspects of beauty.
