Venting to the World

Do men use mirrors?

Ok…here’s a controversial post-.sorry guys, but why is it that many average to unnatractive guys, boring guys, or not-so-bright guys all think they can score a Playboy centerfold look-a-like? Was it growing up looking at these same centerfolds, is it internet porn where all women look perfect-and photoshopped to death- or is it an inability to see themselves as they really are: older, balding, beer bellied and just regular? Women seem to get it. If they are overweight or not coventionally pretty,, they acknowledge that they will not find the dark, tall and handsome (and rich) prince charming. So they will have to give in some, if not most of these things..so they settle. I have met several average looking middle aged guys with bad teeth, protuding belly or bad skin who are still single, and searching, for the model-like skinny babe who will fall for them. No, I am not talking about Donald Trump who would certainly be married to Mrs. Frump if he were he owner of the local gas station in small town America. Then there are those who are not wealthy, drive a “reliable” car and dress drabilly in loose khaki pants. They join dating sites, go to bars, and turn down any woman with a “few extra pounds” or a plain but pleasant face. They sometimes succeed in engaging a hot babe, only to be dumped after the first date. They are unaware as to why she did not want to date such a fine man like himself. What I am saying is that every pan has a lid. Couples are usually formed based on similar levels of education and looks and or in an exchange of these traits, The money for looks exchange is the most common one. Sometimes you see some mismatches where someone amazing looking is dating someone plain and poor, or someone very rich with a plain looking wife who he adores. In those cases, there is more than just the surface: love, a sense of obligation, family ties, a common goal, joint assets, causes, political views or an obsession with that type of person. Men who have the centerfold complex need to get rid of the tiranny of looks. Be realistic of who they are and what kind of woman they can attract. And be content to find companionship and someone to share life with instead of spending years and years being rejected by beautiful women. Ok guys, I know you will say that without physical attraction nothing happens, but have you tried to give the mousy lady a chance? Maybe the attraction can grow once you get to know her-and there is nothing better than having someone wanting us too-that is half the work.

  1. Great post.

    Single 30-50 something guys may have bought into the “playboy lifestyle” lie. The reality is that married guys have more sex, rate their lives as more fulfilling and earn more than single guys. For some men the single life is great. For many it never lives up to the hype.
