What does ';Beauty is in the eye of the beholder'; mean?

I know its about liking yourself or something, but what does it mean specifically? What does everyone think the message is? =]What does ';Beauty is in the eye of the beholder'; mean?
I think it means that some people find some things beautiful that others see as ugly. Oscar Wilde once said ';those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. this is a fault. those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. for these there is hope';

I think that in regards to yourself, it really is true. I know that for me, I tend to focus fully on my flaws, and I miss everything that is beautiful about me. But when I talk to others, they say that I am beautiful. And sometimes, I do see this beauty. But we tend to be our worst critics, and all we do is focus on our flaws (as to improve ourselves, although in this case, most can't be improved, and we just ruin our self-esteem).

And some people do see things as beautiful. I think that rats are beautiful creatures, whereas the majority of the world, thinks that they are ugly and disgusting. But then... that might just be me being crazy. :)What does ';Beauty is in the eye of the beholder'; mean?
It means that beauty is contingent upon, or depends upon, your eye, i.e. what you see and determine to be beautiful. Things are not beautiful in themselves, rather we determine what is and is not beautiful after seeing it. This means we don't look for specific conditions, in things, that makes them beautiful--we determine which things make something beautiful. Beauty in the eye of the behold means that beauty is ';subjective';.
I think it has different meanings. But i usually perceive it as Something or someone is beautiful to the person who posses it no matter what the flaws or shortcomings. For example someone makes a painting, not everyone likes it but it is beautiful to the painter or the person who buys it. That's how i see it.
That ugly people should`t give up on the idea of getting laid. Sorry. I think it means that the perception of beauty is not universal, but personal.

Amazing... I get thumbs down for exactly the same answer as everyone elses. I did say ';I`m sorry'; for my joke- c`mon people- I`m ugly, I`m allowed to make jokes at my own expence.
I think it means that no one can tell you you're beautiful except you. You have to have the confidence in yourself and believe that you are beautiful. Don't rely on other people's opinions, think for yourself. Love yourself.
It means that you might think someone is beautiful but another person might not.

Everyone has their own inter beauty. A person might like someone for their looks and others like people for what they are all about.
To me it means a woman that I am attracted to may not be someone my friends may be attracted to. Some people think very skinny people are hot, some don't. Some think chubby people are hot, some don't.
You personally may think something/someone is beautiful while not everyone else does. In other words everyone has their own opinion(s) about things.
no one has the identical opinion on everything. no one defines requirements to being beautiful the same way.
it means in order for something to be beautiful somebody has to see it that way. Beauty is a matter of opinion
Beauty is in the eye of the BEER holder
if i think ur ugly there is always some1 who will think ur not ugly lol
