Every day millions of internet users ask Google lifes most difficult questions, big and small. Our writers answer some of the most common queries
Is my face attractive? Dont answer that. Not because Im ducking out of this, but because you cant. Attractiveness is subjective, perhaps the most subjective question of all; that we outsource the answer to Google (and we do, in our droves) is ironic since it depends on a bias that is impossible to unpack. Yet in searching the internet for an answer, it also reveals the question to be one of the great existential tensions of our time. Because, as we all know, being attractive is absolutely 100% the A-road to happiness.
If you are Googling to rate your attractiveness, then you are probably working on the assumption that you arent. Youre also, possibly, more vulnerable and susceptible to being told that you arent. In short, youre a sitting duck, someone who had a sore throat and who asked good old Dr Google for advice only to be told it was cancer.
Still, its only in investigating precisely why Google is the last person you should ask being a search engine therefore insentient that you can start cobbling together an idea of what attractiveness really is.
