What makes you a beautiful person (besides your 'killer' looks)?
As they said beauty isn't about having a pretty face. it's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart, and most importantly, a beautiful soul. I do believe that every woman is beautiful in their own way, being beautiful on the inside is what enhances the outer beauty.

A man with values would be the perfect notion
