As a word is to it’s definition, your looks are to everything else that makes you.
This is where people’s looks turn into something that endears them to us (maybe because we want to like them??? I haven’t decided on this yet, but leave your conclusions in the comments!), no matter how attractive/unattractive we would have otherwise viewed them as being.
This is why an “attractive” person, can be in a relationship with an “unattractive” person (keep in mind this is, of course, all relative, though we have all seen an example of this as we would consider it), and actually love how they look. Because subconsciously, it’s not the look they think of when they consider the person’s looks, but everything else.
