Well...just another occasion where I realize how different I am from other girls. I used
to worry about how I looked, but up recently, I realized that I don't give damn anymore. Of course, I wouldn't like it if I was horribly over-weight or something- but, since I'm not, I don't really care about the prettiness of my face or the perfection of my figure. I never wear make-up and I don't bother myself with 'fashion'. Clean, decent clothing is good enough for me, no matter how unfashionable
As for my ideas on why women enjoy looking beautiful...I suppose because it's the way of the world to place looks and appearances before anything else. I for one think that if you used your beauty and 's.a' to attract you man, you aren't going to have a very lasting relationship, girl.
As for getting better jobs because you're good-looking...I suppose it's true if you're pursuing a non-academic career. But when getting a job where you actually have to study and make an impression through your knowledge and leadership qualities rather than your pretty face, it holds little water.
That's not to say this sad, superficial world of ours doesn't favour looks above anything else. Which is why some 'ugly' people, even though they have talent, are being over-looked in favour of someone who is more visually appealing
And in the case of females, there seems to be more emphasis on that- though I can't really say why.
Hopefully, my plain looks won't put me too
far behind my better-looking counterparts...'Cause frankly, I can't be bothered to wear make-up, visit fashionable hair-stylists or waste my money on designer clothing. Last edited by calstine at 5:12 pm, Jul 17 2010
