How do you know if you're good looking?

I know everyone's definition of good looking and beautiful are different but my friends lately have brought that question up and it's pondering in my head. Just need a rough answer.

Most things that are included in "good looking" are health related, oddly enough. Or perhaps not so odd; in the long run our subconscious is looking for a healthy mate, no matter what we think on the surface.
For instance: a full head of shiny hair, healthy; straight and white teeth, healthy; smooth and clear complexion, healthy; strong and straight posture, healthy; not too thin or too hefty, healthy; straight arms and legs, healthy. Hair color, eye color, shade of skin, that's all personal taste and varies from observer to observer (beauty being in the eye of the observer/beholder), but basically we're looking for signs of health.

Oh my God!! Really? Judge people much? You must be perfect.

I'm not judging people. But these are the things we look for, without even thinking about it, and the reason is that our subconscious mind (which often has us doing things we don't even think about) is looking for these is that INSTINCTIVELY we want someone healthy. Never, for one moment, have I ever felt that people who don't have all these qualities are not worthy of either friendship or love. Our instincts are not our thoughts, certainly not our deeds. So don't judge me either; you don't know me.

If people don't run away when they see you, you'll be ok.

I have never been attractive, but I have a daughter (nearly 18, adopted as a baby) who is killer beautiful. I've asked her if she knows HIW beautiful she is. She says she does. She doesn't act conceited about it, well I would never had stood for such behavior. Luckily, she's such a great young woman and I never had to.
