Does Beauty Depend on Where You Live?

Attractiveness has long been an important part of society. The general feeling is, if you’re beautiful, you have a higher ability to be happy. But according to ScienceDaily and researchers from the University of Georgia and the University of Kansas, being attractive matters more depending on your geographical location.

If you live in an urban area, the study suggests, you have a higher pressure to be attractive. In fact, women in these areas generally think that attractive people are more psychologically well than those who are unattractive. Beauty matters in socially mobile places more because you have your pick of friends and social activities, and associating with beautiful people is usually the choice made.

However, in rural areas, there isn’t so much variety. You’re going to socialize with people in the community if you live in a place where there aren’t a lot of people, and you aren’t going to be choosy. Perhaps more importantly, beauty will not ensure happiness. Even pretty urban women are at risk for psychological unrest.

So rather than worrying about your looks go out and have a good time with your friends, wherever you live.

    having grown up and living all over the world, i notice that attractiveness is culturally defined. in asia, white skin is coveted. in western culture, sun roasted skin is desired.
