Inner Beauty Matters More Than You Realize

Most women spend a lot of time on their outer appearance by putting on makeup, styling their hair and wearing the right clothes, jewelry and shoes. Focusing on your physical appearance as an approach to find and keep a good man, is like choosing a book to read based on the eye-catching cover. If the cover is beautiful, but there’s not much substance in the book, you won’t read it.

Keeping a good man requires your inner beauty to match or outshine your outer beauty. Instead of spending 80% of your time making yourself beautiful on the outside, spend that time making yourself just as beautiful on the inside. In doing so, you’ll attract better quality men, giving you more options to choose from.

What follows are quotes about inner beauty and my perspective on how they apply to catching your ideal man’s heart.

“Outer beauty attracts, but inner beauty captivates.” ― Kate Angell, Squeeze Play

Men are visual and in order to spark his interest in you, he must like what he sees. You don’t have to look like a supermodel or have big boobs. Whether you are slender, athletic and toned, average, curvy, or carrying a few extra pounds, there are men who like any of these body types. It’s really about getting and staying in your best physical shape. Exercise, eat and drink well. Dress in attractive outfits appropriate to your body type and age. Wear a hairstyle that brings out your best facial features. Apply makeup that enhances your features instead of covers up your face.

It turns out moms are right when they say, “It’s who you on the inside that matters.” Once you catch a man’s eyes, it’s who you are on the inside that keeps or doesn’t keep his attention. Being happy, confident, secure, authentic, kind, loving and living your own life will keep him interested in you. If you’re not able to consistently embody these ways of being, put your focus on making the changes necessary to let your inner beauty shine through.

“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.” ― Audrey Hepburn

How you treat others says a lot about who you are, especially when they can’t do anything for you. Treat everyone the same – with kindness, care and respect – regardless of their lot in life. It’s easy to treat people well when they are nice to you. The real test is how you treat someone who isn’t nice to you. If someone isn’t nice to you, maybe (s)he’s just having a bad day. Don’t take it personally by making it be about you. Instead, just treating everyone well and leave a positive lasting impression.

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” ― Kahlil Gibran

Have you ever been around someone who is physically beautiful, but empty on the inside? What’s missing is a light in their heart. Having a “light in the heart” is like having a zest for life. There’s a lightness and childlike wonder that comes from having a zest for life. The energy you give off when living your life to the fullest is extremely appealing to men. When you are happily living your life, a man won’t feel pressured and responsible for your happiness.

“No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt

If you’re not speaking up because you’re afraid of what his response will be or you don’t want to hurt his feelings, you’re not being true to yourself. Speaking your voice by communicating openly and clearly are signs of inner beauty. Instead of shutting down when you’re afraid to speak up, practice expressing how you feel and what you would like. In doing so, he gets to know you for who you truly are and what you stand for. If he is the right man for you, this beautiful quality of speaking your voice will catch his heart.

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” ― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

It’s easy to handle situations that are going well. The true test of inner beauty is how you handle difficult situations. When you take care of difficult situations with grace, your inner beauty shines through. Respond thoughtfully instead of reacting immediately in irritation, frustration or anger. Express how you feel without blaming the other person. Listen with an open heart instead of listening to defend your position. Let go of having to be right so that you can be loved.

Why Inner Beauty is Necessary to Catch and Keep a Man’s Heart

Think of inner beauty as your trademark, representing who you are. No one else can copy who you are. They may try, but in doing so, will just come across as an imitation of you. Inner beauty is what makes you distinct. It is unique to who you are, sets you apart and makes you stand out. It’s what makes you lovable and ultimately, it catches and keep a man’s heart.  How will you let your inner beauty shine?

  • This article confirms to me why it’s better to develop the kind of social skills to meet the right person OFFLINE. Some of the most attractive people don’t take good photos unless it’s a professional picture which is too pricey for many. Men can’t see that sometimes it’s just the photo, but the person is much more attractive offline, and then misses out on a potential match.
