Appreciating natural beauty

     Being a fan of , I have checked out the the SportsbyBrook website link on their site.  I know it’s gonna seem like a stretch here, but men have been occasionally known to look at pictures of Internet. It’s the reason they invented the Internet, right?

    Anyway, the SportsByBrook website, along with forums discussing something called ‘sports’ (I don’t really follow them myself); they have pictures of women. Mostly on the curvy side with lots of make-up; they pose in exotic places like Hawaii, Ireland, and Cincinnati, Ohio (ok, not always so exotic). There are all sorts of women from various backgrounds.  While some of these women may be societal eye candy, most of these pictures seem really fake.

    For the ladies reading this, please don’t take this site as any regular standard to achieve with your own appearance. There are men out there who can appreciate natural beauty. Make-up, when used in moderation, can enhance your appearance. Like clothing, it shouldn’t be used like a costume to distract those around you. Use it to emphasize your good features and deemphasize the not-as-good stuff. Remember: These women may lead confortable airbrushed lives as jpegs; however, the truth is that they sweat, emit aromas, and suffer from bedhead just like the rest of us in real life. Placing all your efforts into maintaining physical appearance will only lead you down an ugly, Joan-Rivers-like path where you will eventually become a shell of your former self. Plastic surgery upon plastic surgery will eventually make you look like a latex bag crammed with coathangers. Go for the normal look, please. I beg you.

     Guys, when it comes to women like this; think of the level of maintenance. If a woman keeps all her beauty in the bottle next to her nightstand, imagine what you could wake up next to the following morning. Let’s say you want to take a quick morning trip to the supermarket. What? Your woman has to “play with her face” for an hour to get things right, just so you can get a gallon of milk and the paper? Dude, you could have been there and back by now.

     Now, the big thought comes. What happens 40 years from now when your spending time with her now? What do you think gravity and time do with everyone’s body? (including yours!)  Hopefully, you both have some stake in the relationship besides appearance or you’re gonna have lots of time to kill for shuffleboard and feeding the birds in the park.

 Just tryin’ to keep it real.

  1. and a very good, sensible real-keeping you’re doing. 😉

    now, if only the media can pick up such wonderful mindsets instead of bombarding us with impossible pictures of beauty.

  2. Great post. Certainly, did you keep it real!

    Natural beauty is something the adworld has pounced on. Why? Because it not only tests well with women, but astoundingly well on men as well! Case in point: fashion brand American Apparel! An SFGate columnist blasted the brand last year, yet if you read his story, it contains mucho hyperlinks to the photo section of their site–happens to have been rated one of the top soft porn sites on the Net–hilarity!

  3. That is so not true. I love getting dolled up on a regular basis. However, I’ve been known to grunge out for days – and I can actually pull my hair back into a ponytail and throw on jeans and run errands – without a thought to cosmetics, brushing my hair, etc.

    Now you are stereotyping glamour girls.

  4. I thought the conclusion was ultimately, ‘all women are awesome’.
