My Thoughts and Dreams

Not all women were born with..

Not all women were born with the perfect size 3/4 body that
society seems to think that we should have. Women have
somehow over the years come to believe that anything but
the perfect body, the perfect hair, and the porcelain face
that every man seems to desire is unacceptable. Why is
that, I wonder? Women seem to go through so much trouble
and pain to make themselves the appitomy of what every man
desires. We wax, diet, color our hair, buy the most
expensive perfumes and makeups, go to the hair salon, get
liposuction and tummy tucks, and get butt lifts. And for
what? To be desirable to men. Well, I for one would much
rather be loved for what is on the inside of me than what
is on the outside. In time the outer appearance always
fades. I don't know about you, but I don't want to sit here
every day of my life and wonder, "is this man with me
because of my looks? What if my looks fade? What if I gane
weight? Will he still love me? Will he still find me
attractive?" Hello???? Wake up! If you put yourself into
that situation from the beginning then you have noone to
blame but yourself. I, for one, do not want to wonder every
day if the man laying next to me even realizes that I have
a brain or a personality or the ability to carry on an
intelligent conversation. If you are going to love me, then
love ME. Not what you want me to be. Not what you think I
should be. And definitely not for a trophy to show off to
all of your friends. Believe it or not, there is more to
women than just their looks. We have brains. We can think.
We can talk. But most importantly, we can feel. And we can
cry when you hurt us. Yet, we can laugh and smile when you
make us happy. But first and foremost, we can love. So,
guys, before you go looking for that perfect little Barbie
doll that every man dreams of, ask yourself something. Do
you just want a trophy that you will grow tired of in the
long run? Or do you want someone that you can truly love
and that can love you back?
