That's what Google brings up. Don't judge me - I'm too snug and lazy to get out the dictionary and look it up. So if you didn't know what a cat was until now . . . you still won"t know.
So where was I? Cats and beauty , cats and beauty , cats and beauty . . . why have I digressed so horribly?
Let's get back to this beauty thing - so what makes us beautiful or "attractive" (beauty and attractiveness - I feel that there is a distinct difference but more on that later). Instinctively we can deem something attractive or not attractive. It's there, ingrained our conciousness and deeply etched into our brains ( the fusiform area of our brains to be precise - I kid you not).
In my mind , I've marked the parameters of "beauty". That doesn't mean my idea of beauty and your idea of beauty match up. It doesn"t have. I want to know . . . what's your idea of it? Do you think you're beautiful - why or why not?
