What Kind of Girls Are Attractive to Me?

    Before the question in the title came to me, I had never given any serious thought to such a topic. But this does not mean that I don't have any idea of what type of girls are attractive. For me, an attractive girl should have the two qualities I'll share with you in the rest of this article.    What comes first is the look of the girl. You may disagree if you are a person who deems that attractiveness should first come from within the person. I do agree that it is perfectly right for anyone to have such a judgment on attractiveness. However, it is equally unproblematic to put outer attractiveness before inner beauty. For me, if a girl is not good-looking, chances are that she will not attract my attention if I have only one passing chance of getting into contact with her. Come to think of it, nowadays if the appearance of a product is not pleasant to the eye, it will most probably fail to catch the attention of the customer even if it is of superb quality. According to a survey, during the Great Depression in the 1930s, every civilian industry declined except one. Can you guess what industry remained prosperous as ever? It was the cosmetics industry which produced makeups that women were still in desperate need of to make them appearch attractive. Although I don't deny that I have a personal preference for girls or women with good looks and beautiful shapes, I do think that girls with good looks are able to attract more attention in the first place.
    Of course, good looks can be skin deep (mind you, that is no problem at all). Under the appealing shell of a beautiful vase can be sheer emptiness or even rubbish. A girl with a good look may succeed in attracting attention quickly at first but how long the attention will stay or how much stronger the attention will grow largely depends on what will subsequently rise to the surface from under the shell. Good looks will be worn out by time and lose its enchanting power. This is a typical example of the concept of "aethetic fatigure" where the initial great attractiveness of an entity (a person or thing) keeps waning with one's constant and repeated experience of that entity. However attractively a girl may dress herself up, her looks will remain essentially the same. So, if a girl is attractive in her appearance, she is doomed to lose her appeal in due course. Nevertheless, it definitely adds to her attractiveness for a girl to possess some attractive quality other than a mere good look. For example, if a girl with an appealing face or with just an ordinary look is very considerate for others in social communication, I will also feel that she is attractive to me because considerateness is a unique quality that not many people are blessed with. As another example, if, in my prolonged contact with a girl, I discover that she has expansive and profound knowledge about something particular, then I can't help but be attracted by her no matter she is good-looking or not. In that sense, a girl with a special quality will also be attractive to me.
    To sum up, in the broadest sense, if good looks can also be counted as a special attribute, then an attractive girl must be one with a particular attribute. Preferably, if a girl's outer beauty can be matched with her inner beauty of some sort, it will make her most attractive. But as we know, perfectness only resides in dreams.
