This paper explores why physical beauty is an important part of finding somebody attractive. The paper goes through why, from an evolutionary standpoint, physical beauty is important, and how infatuation is evidence that physical beauty is engrained in us, both from a societal standpoint and from our early childhood experiences.

From the Paper:

"Despite all talk of "beauty in the eye of the beholder," one must still agree that beauty- namely, physical beauty- is still an important part of what kind of people we find attractive. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," might be true in terms of some people's preferences, but really, what we term "beautiful" is based upon the agreement of many beholders, over certain periods of time and based in our evolutionary history. Our preferences as a culture (the American culture) change slightly, but it all goes back to the fact that we do place a lot of emphasis on the physical when it comes to choosing mates."
