    A SMALL one? I don't know about that. That has less to do with looks than functionality. :D

    Besides, you can't tell the size of a man's *ahem* thingy when he is wearing clothes, so that really doesn't count for much when talking about strictly outward physical appearances. :)

    I think it's the "Sex in the city" thing and her supposed intellect.
    I kinda preferred the blonde in that.

    Well, I have to go now, but I will leave you with this. Do you really believe that THIS is the ultimate test of your beauty? :D

    Sorry, but I think there is more to being attractive, but you can at least see how "symmetrical" your features are here.

    "Muh, muh, muh...Women say all the time they want a big anaconda!"

    Lol.
    Yet women talk about that "very often". But just like with men and breasts, there is not much truth to "women only wanting a guy with a big ----". If the woman has a pair of boobs, she is a woman and that will be enough for her to get a date. If the man has a penis, he is a man and that will be enough to get a date.

    Yup. There we have it! :)

    You may think there is, but actually there is not. It is all about maths. :thumbsup:

    It isn't though. You can be ugly and still have a "symmetrical" face. :)

    She looks more like Owen Wilson.

    No. Most of your preferences were determined before birth. Otherwise the softwares that analyse the attractiveness of your face would not be possible. :p

    Florence Colgate, safe to say she is objectively beautiful. Yes?

    Something awfully strange about her. Can't put my finger on it. Not very attractive.

    Yes, and I'm talking about men who can have their pick, too. Good looking, educated, super fit men between the ages of 35 and 55. I might add here, that I think the key word in that description is 'educated'. There's a BIG difference between what your lowest common denominator (aka, rednecks) types find attractive in a woman, and what educated and worldly men find attractive.

    None of the blokes I know who fit the criteria mentioned above like big boobs. They like smaller, firm boobs, not great honking dangly udders. It's that devil 'youth' thing again. Pert boobs are associated with youth, huge boobs aren't.

    I'm sure they all like different things, but a lot of men do like big breasts. Lol. Young women can have big boobs too, you know! :smile:

    There is a thread here somewhere where the guys (and some women) post pictures of women they find attractive. Almost all of the women have HUGE boobs.

    Meh, I think she's pretty but not THAT pretty. She's kind of average looking to me. :smile: Flat hair too.

    I have to question the judgment of anyone who thinks SJ Parker is attractive. Sorry. And Florence Colgate is pretty and pretty average because that's what beauty is - an average chin, average nose, average eyes, average cheeks and so on.

    I didn't say I thought she was beautiful. I said some people consider her to be beautiful. That woman I just posted is way more beautiful than the blonde, IMO. I think she's pretty but in order to be beautiful you have to have stunning features.

    [MENTION=69823]Ritter[/MENTION], that girl you posted has really small eyes too. :) Also, I think I like the look of a woman who looks a little more "mature."

    As you can see, her face is pretty much perfect for that "symetry mask" (black lines). Very attractive.

    I think we all prefer beautiful faces. :p

    It depends how you define "mature". A neotenic/pedomorphic and feminine face does not equal a baby/"doll face". In general hard skin, wrinkles and other signs of age (if that is what you mean by "mature") is, not attractive to men.

    What is funny is that it is very usual for women to find a 40+ year old man good looking, whereas a man will hardly ever call a 40+ woman attractive. I guess this is because men "never" lose their fertility, but women do. :p

    The point was that Florence Colgate has a very symetric face and you agreed she was beautiful, so therefore you also agree symetry is attractive. :nod:

    Grace Kelly below, highly feminine and highly attractive.
