What makes a house special? How it looks from the outside or the inside? Would you prefer a beautiful-looking villa that has cramped rooms or a generic looking house that has beautiful furnishing with spacious rooms?
The inner beauty vs outer beauty debate is timeless because it will always exist. And there is no correct answer about what humans should prefer, which makes it so interesting to discuss. It’s human nature to prefer different things.
However, it is also true that in recent years, the emphasis on inner beauty is increasing. Young men and women are starting to appreciate the importance of compatibility and a good personality of a romantic partner.
I personally prefer inner beauty over outer beauty. Put it this way: would you prefer the friend who constantly compliments you when you’re with her and then talks behind your back vs a friend who may praise you less in public but defends you and your actions when you’re not there?
