Until certain age i didn't even thought that girls can be... not sure how to describe it - super-attractive? I felt something like "neutral level" of attraction until i saw Alyson Hannigan (actress) and that's when i understood that i just haven't seen real beauty yet. Later when i got the internet acsess i found plenty more of amazingly looking ladies on pictures and videos, but still finding each of them were incredibly hard.

I cannot really explain what exact traits i love in humans (except the freckles, they always nice), but there is something about cute faces that are very adorable and feminine, that making me want to look at them all the time like on fine works of art, make me want to instantly hug and cuddle with them. This kind of faces are more common in asian race (they make the cutest emotions), but can be in others as well.

The problem is that what i love is very opposite of standard "model" type of appearance that majority loves and goes for. I kinda find that kind of appearance disgusting and it's hard for me to feel any kind of attraction to those who have it.

If you want to see what i dislike - just google "just beautiful woman" and open pinterest site (i am not allowed to post links). There you won't see a single even slightly attractive woman for me.

And what i like is this:

But every time i show it to other people usually nobody shares my attraction to this cute ladies. Yet they seem to be quite popular among men regardless, and that seems weird to me.

It's not like i ever valued appearance over personality, and if faced a choice i would propably chose someone who shares my interests but ugly over someone who is beautiful but we have no common themes to talk about, but there is some specific magic in looking at the person who makes you feel good and smile just by appearance only (and i can't imagine how good it must feel to touch such person). And also it creates another problem - i don't like being dishonest to people, so if i girl i would like asked me if she was beautiful and she was not - i would probably said the truth, that i value her for her personality and not looks. But when i mentioned that online, all the girls who read this said that they would dislike to hear that, especially if they are considered attractive by other people.

If anyone have same problem, how do you deal with it?

Those pics all just look like they're intentionally taken at bad angles. All those pics look like they're of cute girls making funny faces, at bad angles, or altered.

They look nice. And it’s nice that you like this type of lady. Cute is always a good choice.

Those girls and women look entirely normal.

I don't know why someone would need "weird taste" to find them attractive.

Personally, I'm attracted to people with skin, a brain, a heart, and a backbone.

Idk man, you may be overanalizing...

Those all look like normal women, idk I don't see what is weird of you being attracted to them. Perhaps you are overthinking it a bit...

I always found willow strangely alluring. more so than buffy, who is 'technically' more beautiful and the one i'm supposed to like more, and the conventional object of desire for adolescents watching the show i would assume

I'm sorta demisexual & tend to be attracted to people based on their personalities(unless I'm watching porn) & I noticed I tend to be more attracted to women who are part of alternative cultures or look like they are if I haven't had a chance to gauge their personality. I tend to like EMOs, goths, hippies, nerds/geeks/dorks, & cosplay looks probably because they are more relatable to me. As for as how I look, it's plain & might could be described as white trash or skinhead punk

There are a couple certain aesthetics which are more commonly and visibly celebrated, but there are plenty of people who don't care overly much for them.

I don't care too much for the Cover Girl aesthetic, for example, or people whose personalities revolve a little too much around their looks, fame or glamour.

Those women all look beautiful to me. They don't seem unusual at all.

The main similarity I am seeing here (on average in these pictures) is a rounded face and fuller cheeks. The jawline is not as defined in favour of rounder softer features. I would not consider this to be a weird taste in appearance. However, I think I know what you are picking up on. Models are often chosen to have particular features, especially in the case of makeup companies. For example, advertisements selling contour tend to prefer using models who have more angular faces since the point of contour is to make the edges (or any other features someone wants to draw attention to) of the face more defined / pronounced. So using someone with a more pointed face is a good way of exaggerating the effects or bringing attention to the contour. Especially when using angled lighting. However, this is not always the case as sometimes more rounded faces are used, but it is something I have noticed*.

On a similar note, rounder faces are typically preferred when selling blush since the cheeks are more pronounced, so the blush stands out a bit more on photos. Beauty standards vary around the world. I suspect that where you live, or where the people you've asked about this live, tend to have a preference for higher defined cheekbones with flatter cheeks and stronger jawlines on more angular faces.

*Please note, I am not an expert on makeup. I only wear nail polish and I am solely basing this on what I've learnt about portrait photography.

^^^I noticed that some of those faces look Asian. Asian is a very popular porn fetish but I don't get the attraction. They're petite but so are lots of non Asian women, & they tend to play schoolgirls & teens but so do lots of non Asian women, & they tend to do lots of cosplay type stuff which I like but otherwise I don't get the attraction. That said I do NOT find em unattractive & I would have nothing against being in a relationship with one if she was a nice person.

Don't think I have weird taste in appearances but I'm a sucker for a southern drawl.

99% of the women in the photo's look far too young for me.
