There's no standard when it comes to attractiveness. Studies show that symmetrical faces are the most attractive to most people, but that's just physical beauty. Everything about beauty and attractiveness is subjective and open to debate. Personal preferences help determine attraction, but it is more than just physical. While looks might be what initially ropes you in, it's not what keeps you around.
Non-physical traits like kindness and intelligence are long-lasting and also change from person to person. Some people want a partner who is funny and shares their sense of humor, while others want someone who is incredibly intelligent and challenges the mind. Or maybe you want a combination of brains, humor and kindness. Whatever your preferences are, you know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and poor non-physical traits can't be covered with makeup.
At a certain point, adult life might become about finding someone you want to settle down with or even have children with. You might start to look for traits you'd want to pass on to your children or you might finally have an easier time recognizing what your "deal-breakers" are.
