Attractive women are a dime a dozen.
It really is true. And many of those attractive women adorn the covers of magazines in their underwear. If you ever feel the need to rely on your looks to attract and keep a man, just remember: he can find an airbrushed beauty all his own at the checkout line in the supermarket – one that he doesn’t have to buy flowers for, one that won’t get mad at him when he forgets to put the toilet seat down, one whose blemishes have all been spirited away into the great beyond of digital photography… in short, one “better” than you.
Come on now, you don’t want a man who is into you only for your looks. There’s always a bigger fish, and if he grabs you because you’re the most attractive little thing in the room, he’ll be just as quick to ditch you when the blonde bombshell comes in behind. You want a man who is enamored with a quiet spirit, not a loud bust. You want a man who is taken by a slender ego, not a slender waist. You want a man who is amazed at your loyalty to your friends, not your loyalty to your diet.
Looks are fleeting, and men who only care about them all the more so. You may win a beauty contest for your looks, but it’s not a title you can defend indefinitely. So make sure the way you dress communicates that you know this, because the right men are out there and, like me, they are looking for someone who exhibits the timeless qualities of love, honesty, humility, and loyalty that time does not take away.
I grant that looks are important, and I don’t advocate dressing like a slob because “well, if the right man comes along he’ll just look right past the rags”. Haha, Cinderella, that may be true, but at least try to be presentable, fair enough? Bottom line, keep it somewhere between a bikini and a burkha (granted, I’d advise you sit on the burkha side of the dividing line, if only barely…), and keep beaming that beautiful smile.
That’s all it should take.
