Cheekbones - Yay or Nay?

I know we all have cheekbones but I'm talking about the sticky out ones.

Let me tell you the backstory first. For the last couple of months I've been working in a bar because I lost my job and I need to eat and a couple of weeks ago a new guy started and instantly all the female barstaff all went weak at the knees and they just spend their shifts either fawning over him or if he's not on talking about how "beautiful" he is. I didn't (and still don't get it) he's not got a manly face, he's thin, he has alien eyes and bones jutting out of his cheeks. I asked the girls why they love him so much and they all said "cheekbones".

I've always thought that cheekbones make someone look gaunt and they're horrible. I think he looks weird, he looks a bit like Douglas Booth who I also think is weird looking but the girls also love him. If I sound jealous then you'd be right, facially I'm as ugly as sin, so I go to the gym a lot and while I get comments on my body (usually from very drunk and slightly desperate older women) its nothing near the level he's getting and he's a thin lanky alien! I've asked my guy friends and they don't get it either but then they're hardly a great barometer of taste.

So cheekbones are they actually that great? And how do I get them without surgery?

Re: Cheekbones - Yay or Nay?

I think that sticky cheekbones are very attractive in a woman with small eyes, I don't know but I've always found them so beautiful.


The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Cheekbones - Yay or Nay?

I find that " cheekbones model " look attractive. You don't have to go under a knife to get that look, you just need to be skinny
Is he something like this?

Re: Cheekbones - Yay or Nay?

Depends on the "proportion" and the "level" of the cheekbones
Like the example above is quite a perfect example.

Re: Cheekbones - Yay or Nay?

It's not a mandatory to be attractive, I don't think.

For example, this amazingly stunning template of idealized beauty doesn't have particularly prominent cheekbones, though the ones she has are exactly perfect:

I don't think I could get skinny with my weight training. He doesn't look like that model...that I can see is attractive but he's more like this:





To me they seem to make the face look too feminine without the right masculine jaw...I dunno I just don't get it.

Definitely, yay. I mean, I cannot go against my own anorexic cheekbones skeleton kind.

Part of it is genetic. High, prominent cheekbones are fairly common among East Asians and Native Americans.

I assume there's not an exercise one could do if its genes?

Cheekbones are bones, you cannot change the shape of your bones But you could get super skinny though and they'd be more prominent. I'm not sure the body would be attractive after that though lol.

Re: Cheekbones - Yay or Nay?

Yeah, if you don't naturally have prominent cheekbones the only way for them to stand out is if you starve yourself. Not worth it, in my opinion. You got to play to your strengths.

I don't agree. Some people can lose some weight and their cheekbones will be visible, you don't have to be anorexic to have them, look at this guy, he is well built yet his cheekbones are visible, it's just the way he is.
