The reason that people say that beauty is only skin deep, is because it's true. If you're lucky, you'll find someone that's not only beautiful on the outside, but beautiful on the inside as well. True beauty comes from within. No matter how well we take care of ourselves, we're all going to show signs of aging, and get old. It's important for everyone to know that the person that they're with will love them for who they are, and not just what they look like on the outside. Many times, you'll come across people in life that on the exterior, they might not be all that appealing, but on the inside, they're such a good person that they make the exterior become so incredibly beautiful.
Some of the most beautiful people in this world are beautiful on the inside. For example, look at people like Audrey Hepburn. She was one of the most beautiful people to ever live, but not only beautiful on the outside, but beautiful on the inside as well. Audrey Hepburn had many imperfections that even she herself would feel existed. But, to the rest of the world, it was those imperfections that made her even more beautiful. I have a feeling that those imperfections became so incredibly beautiful, not because of the imperfections themselves, but because of what a beautiful person she was on the inside.
I've known certain woman to be some of the most beautiful woman that I've ever met in my life, even comparable to some of the most gorgeous, and famous female movie stars that ever lived. However, once I got to know them, and basically, once they spoke, their beauty started to disintegrate right before my eyes. The more that I got to know them, the less that I found them to be beautiful. If anything, they became quite ugly to me. It's possible that it was my perception that I found them to be ugly in the end, but I don't think so. A person's outer beauty can literally deteriorate from the way people see them, when their actions are actions of impurity, cruelty, deceit, envy, jealousy, bitterness, negativity, and any other type of nastiness. There are many different things that can define someone as beautiful, but exterior beauty can only take you so far.
It's imperative that people look to find a partner in life that's not only attractive on the outside, but beautiful on the inside as well. When someone is beautiful on the outside, but ugly on the inside, I'd consider them to be what I'd like to call a "hot mess." Whether you're a man or a woman, you can be considered a "hot mess" when you're nasty and evil to the core.
Whenever I've come across people that have wanted to date me that asked me very superficial questions, and seemed to care more so about the insignificant things in life like fashion, beauty, hair colour, makeup, and my body type, etc., much more so than trying to find out what type of person I am on the inside, I've never given them a chance, and I'd leave the situation immediately. A superficial man is just as bad as a superficial woman. Maybe it's the fact that I'm living in Los Angeles, but I've come across a lot of superficial men, so it's not only the women that are superficial.
Remember, when it comes to dating, and finding your best possible match, you should be looking for a package deal so to speak. Within that package, you should want most of their qualities and attributes to be things of the internal nature, and not so much things of the external nature. Don't get me wrong, fire and chemistry is everything, as well as passion and attraction. However, when that attraction and chemistry is based solely on the exterior qualities of a person, it won't last, nor will that fire heat up your bedroom for the long-term. Fire and chemistry is superficial when there's no foundation within the couple, and they're not compatible with each other on any level, other than physically.
Some of the worst hot mess types of people are the ones that come with drama in their package. I'm not talking about the drama that comes with having occasional disagreements, or possibly debating a situation with a person. I'm talking about the drama where the person complains all of the time, and creates issues out of everything. A hot mess is generally a person that I put in the category of toxic people. Stay away from the hot messes that you come across, despite how beautiful they are on their exterior.
Being beautiful on the outside is something that I think we all hope to be. We'd all like to know that our partner thinks of us as beautiful, and not just on the inside. However, when someone is truly and utterly beautiful on the inside, I promise you that your attraction for them will not only grow, but it will become so strong and intense, that not only will they become somewhat attractive to you, but they could likely turn into one of the most beautiful people that you'd ever laid eyes on.
It's important to give someone a chance when you feel some sort of attraction to them, even if they're not exactly what you thought your future partner might look like. If you give a person a chance that you have even a little attraction to, and especially, when you know that you have some common interests, and you like their personality, it's important to give things a shot. Many times people give up too early, and don't give things a shot, merely because of their lack of attraction to the person. Generally, I do agree that you shouldn't date someone that you're not attracted to you, but when you already know that you have chemistry, and you like their personality, it's important to see if that attraction will grow, as you get to know them.
