Use 运用

What attracts you to a person? Is it their mind, their attitude, their ability to dance or play sports? Or is it how they look? Of course, true attraction usually has all of these things. But when you first meet a person, you usually notice their looks and their style. If you think this person is beautiful or handsome, you might want to spend more time with them. It’s easy to be attracted to people who are easy on the eyes.

A person who is easy on the eyes is easy to watch because they are beautiful. Models, actors, and other performers are often easy on the eyes. People like their talent, but they also like their looks. Lupita Nyong’o and Chadwick Boseman star in the new movie Black Panther. It was easy for Lupita to pretend to be Chadwick’s girlfriend in this movie because he is both kind and handsome.

Who do you think is easy on the eyes? What makes this person beautiful?
