is it correcet to say that the difference between beautiful and handsome is that the former is used to describe the feminine form and the latter is used to describe the masculine form?
hi friends!! i met some of the usage of handsome for female. some outhors use this usage on their novels for girls.but im not sure it is true or not.maybe i can be literary usage.
You will see 'a handsome woman' used, but it is generally used for a kind of beauty that is not traditionally associated with women.
I’ve read somewhere that handsome is usually about older women. Taking into account the fact that with years metabolism makes us lose some of our masculinity/femininity it seems to be true of handsome; but a beautiful man sounds like gayish to me.
i saw taht she is handsome pety... etc but i dont even know where i saw tem if i founf i wrote ok?
