Why does looking Good matter so much to people?

Honestly, Why don't people just put vanity aside for a second and see who people really are! I'm not Ugly or beautiful, but I don't really care as long as the person is nice and good hearted!

Yes. The society. The teenage life is a very challenging period. There's so much pressure in the youth now, it's very sad. Unfortunately, people live to please people...they don't live to please themselves. And that's very sad.

Keep telling yourself you don't care about looks. It's just self denial. If you found someone ugly enough, you would make up excuses to yourself about how their personality was rubbish.
'Shallowness' is an evolutionary response; good-looking people generally have the best genes.

It has to do with choosing a mate- its animal instinct. Of course we set this aside often enough but when it comes to sex many of us simply want a physically attractive mate. You can't blame humans for being animals, we had no choice. Some of us are shallow too, like me, I am more concerned with outer beauty. I'm not a bad person, I'm just shallow.

Today's society, it's sick. Just be a rebel haha, like I've never worn makeup, spent any time on my hair, or used any skin care products.

Ya know.....looking good - or at least as good as you personally can look - is not all such a bad thing. It shows that you are taking care of yourself, that you want to look respectable when out in public, that you are healthy, maintaining a sensible weight and care about yourself. Is that bad? No. Can it be taken to extremes? Absolutely. If you want to fight the mainstream and look a mess, that is your choice. Be prepared to endure the backlash that some may offer.

You know, I think concern about looks gets more flak than it deserves. It has its place.

The way we look is a reflection of who we are. Not how short or tall we are, or the color of our skin, the size of our noses--we don't choose that. But we DO choose how we see ourselves and how we want to display ourselves to the world, and our choices say a lot about who we are and how we want to be seen.

They say "don't judge a book by its cover," but the fact is that covers are designed to market the book. They feature artwork intended to draw in specific people--those, one would assume, who might be interested in the content of the book--and tell you a little bit about what to expect inside. Covers can lie, but they're deliberately constructed and serve a purpose. They're your first introduction to the book.

I think the goal should be to try and look the way YOU want to look, the way that makes you feel that you're showing the world something real and something that you're proud of. It's about the things that are in your control--your wardrobe, your hygiene, your style--not the things nature gave you. That's self-expression, and self-expression always matters.

Looking good is important to us as human beings. It shouldn't be the main factor in how we treat ourselves, but it is an important one. Looking good can help you find a better job, people will treat you better and see you as a better person. I think looking good is so important because when we look in the mirror, we don't want to be scared of our own reflection.

We want to have something to be proud of, too. It's through hard exercise and hours of taking care of yourself, that will allow you to look good. Anybody can look ugly, just by doing nothing all day. But looking good tells us that we have done something.

Attraction is the first part of love/friendship/ caring with someone you do not yet know. The only thing you have to judge the person is is first what you see second what you hear. Looking your best isn't just about your facial features as much as it is about cleanliness tidiness the body language, the spark in your eye your best smile, and how well you present yourself as a whole.
