surely this must be right?

cos the golden ratio applied to the human face shows how good looking they are. it is thus possible to have a mark out of 10 for each face. it is this that subconsciously determines what faces we think are attractive.

so if you see a face as ugly, it means 'ugly in relation to yourself', thus they must think you are better looking

beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What someone else finds desirable may not necessarily be seen as beautiful by someone else.

At least so I figure

The idea of beauty as other posters have suggested is entirely subjective and hence your question is meaningless as there is no universal definition of beauty or ugly that is true all or the time.

Hell no, although I see where you're coming from by looking at it as a chain.. Ugliest person - slightly less ugly - only a litle ugly - average - stunning etc. If there was a way of measuring beauty quantitively then yes, your hypothesis would be correct. But there isn't.

As everyone has pointed out it's entirely subjective. (Although I believe there is a common trend that people find health attractive.. which makes sense as technically we should have evolved to be attracted to healthy mates.)

Incorrect.

The calculation of beauty has been calculated by the Greeks, and it was discovered that people find a face to the ration of 6:1 attactive. Any face which falls out of this scales becomes less attractive to ugly.

I don't really think there is any connection.

It's what's in the inside that counts. You can have a man/woman with a very attractive face, but they do and say ugly things, they are in my book considered to be ugly. But you can have a ugly person with beautiful actions, what they look like is no longer important and their real beauty comes out. Thats beauty!

Oh you lame fart. A beautiful person does not have a big nose or ginger hair, even if they are a nice person. Still Ugly.

no because you said that we judge people in relation to ourselves. using this theory this means the "ugly" person will also do so in relation to themselves, and may think they are more attractive that the onlooker thinks they are and therefore consider the onlooker ugly.

Beauty is something quite different to sexual attractiveness.
Although they can be related in the sense that you have a partner whom of which you have sexual relations because you like that person so much, not because of their attractiveness but other areas which constitute beauty. So, presumably, if there was this other beauty lacking, you would not have engaged in sexual relations with the person concerned.

Attractiveness is perceptual so actually they may think your a minger and that they are doing you a favour xx
