OMG: Our idea of beauty is so eurocentric it's sad. People of European descent ARE beautiful, but so are people from every other part of the planet too.

  1. Sure, but your standards of beauty are largely based on what you see around you growing up. In Canada, that's still (mostly) people of European descent.

    1. Naaah... not true at all. I'm from Korea.. and most of the people in general think lighter skin, upturned noses and larger eyes are attractive. MOST commonly (of course not all) features found in European people. It has to do with colonialism and history. It's not that simple..

    2. In india, people find lighter skin, lighter eyes and lighter hair attractive too. Skin bleachings ads everywhere in India.

  2. OP has a good point. Everywhere you look (e.g. magazines, TV shows), you mainly have people of european descent OR you have people of other ethnicities who have eurocentric facial features (light skin, straight hair etc. etc. etc.)

    Even at Waterloo, people complain about how people at Laurier are more attractive. I've seen so many attractive girls and guys at UW. I think a part of me does think it's because Laurier has more white people when compared to UW.

    That's why people end up saying that. That's just my opinion though.

    1. Also, Laurier students tend to not be as academic as UW students. Nerdy types are known to not flaunt their looks and spend time on more intellectual things.

    2. Most of the girls at Laurier and guys too are white. And I think since people are drawn to those facial features they find them attractive. Whereas in Waterloo, you'll find tons of beautiful East Asian woman with dark hair, smaller eyes and beautiful facial features. But I think cause of OP's point we say that.

  3. There's always going to be some things that just appeal to a wider, general audience. Take the radio for example. If you really listen to it it's not THAT good but most people like it anyways. There's always a general standard, that's the fun thing about being human is you have the ability to create and modify your own tastes. It really has nothing to do with anything more than that. People will find problems out of everything if they think about it long enough, sometimes it's not that deep.

  4. Eh. The majority of people find light skin, large eyes, and fine features attractive. FACT. Due to historical or genetic reasons; its up for debate. BUT not all people prefer Euro looks. I'm white as fuck but I do not prefer women of a European decent.

  6. Lmao
    I'm attracted to people who are ugly as sin because how they carry themselves in social situations. I was into my chem TA (I'm straight but still into men because its 2015 u bigot) because he was smart and confidence as fuck and in my opinion had a great public speaking voice but he didn't have Hollywood standard looks. I see so many people just looking either nervous or uncomfortable and pulling and straightening out their fucking clothes and my dick shrinks a good 5 inches (p.s my dick is really big dont worry boys) when I see these vain unconfident people who don't understand how to be attractive. I'm not saying confidence is all that matters because someone who is too confident can act pigheaded but confidence plays a major part. Also why wonder and ponder over someone who don't like you because you don't look like a brad or Robert and won't date u because of your looks. It's like wasting your time on some retard who thinks transformer movies is the highest form of art and trying to convince them otherwise. If their fundamental mindset is fucked up and looks play a important role why waste your time trying to know them.
    Also if my grammar is fucked up or none of this makes any sense fuck you buddy srs :^) how about you correct every fucking mistake u see than make a comment about me being a retard :^) srs I will fight u in real life don't leave a NEGATIVE COMMENT I'm THIS close to call kids help line and I can't take the hate srs be nice to me fag

  7. Lol, you're in a Western country, we find our own to be attractive, it's what we know and are familiar with. It isn't a bad thing that we favour what we are; all nations do the same and nobody criticises them for it. I mean jesus "european-descended" people make up a vanishingly small (and vanishing all the time) percentage of the global population.

    Also blue eyes, with their characteristically well-defined limbal rings, *exist* because humans found them to be sexually attractive. Just be glad you don't have to squint even when it's overcast and wear sunscreen all year.

    1. But a lot of people here are saying that even in their countries outside of the West, people in places find european features better.

  8. I don't find any European type girls attractive, maybe growing as the only white guy amongst all Asians changed my sense of beauty, but I find Asian girls the most beautiful.

    1. You know what's not attractive? People who are shallow and close-minded such as yourself.
