I Just Wanna Know... Is She Cute?
A) her guy cheats
B) her ex moves on to the next
C) her new guy reveals who his ex is…
...she checks to see if she’s cute or not!! And nothing makes a girl feel more confident, cuter or superior to the rest, than to see that the “other” chic doesn’t measure up to her idea of beauty.
As if personality can be measured in a photo, we insist our guy could have done so much better than a girl we think is ugly. Naïve yes, but most, if not, all women do it. And truth be told, guys do too.
I once had a guy, who saw a guy I was dating (thanks to facebook), tell me that I could do better. He even had the nerve to believe HE was the better. After I had to kill him with, “you could never measure up to the man he was five years ago, let alone the man he is today,” he just looked stupid. Like who do you think you are to think you are better than the next cuz you got a prettier face? I love to quote geniuses and a profound quote comes from the song Shoop (wink), “… If looks could kill you would be an oozie..” But honey, they don’t kill, so you’re just regular… old you.
I love to sit at my grandmom’s house and listen to old stories about her youth; especially the ones where she insists that the “other” chic wasn’t ugly, but oooogly. To see a 70+ year old woman grimace at the thought of how unattractive the chic of one of her beaus was, is pure comedy. “I dunno how he could date her when I couldn’t even stand looking at her.” Lol. This just reassures me that this ancient tradition will forever live on: if she’s ugly, you’ll sleep better at night. Which translates into present time as: there’s no better boost than to search thru facebook, find “her” photo and laugh.
So even though you can’t judge the book by the cover… we’ll all continue to judge the book by the cover… ain’t like you ever plan on reading it anyway *shrugs*
SB: I call a spade a spade and give credit where credit is due… So it doesn't matter if you think she’s attractive or not… he does…EYEListen
