Women do not realize how much they degrade themselves when they show their insecurities or try to compete with another woman.
Thats true, but they wont marry her. Probably wont respect her either.Originally Posted by Born In A Brothel
That's why I say it's stupid to compare yourself to anyone at all. You can never be all things to one person, that's silly. My boyfriend and I do the same thing. I'm happy with me. I think I'm a pretty good catch. If he's wants to fantasize about Angelina Jolie or Charlize Theron, go for it. It's not like he's exactly like every man I think is hot. If fantasy starts to interfere with reality, then you have a problem.
We talk about stuff like this all of the time. There are certain women I'm surprised that he finds attractive and women that a lot of men find to be super hot and he thinks they are skanky. If he thinks someone looks "skanky" or used up, he won't even find her attractive. As for being a bitch, personality doesn't play into a guys fantasy

The award for the most condecending post for the day goes to ^^^^^- ME
Men go for intelligence ,beauty, the sublime, innocent, buxom, rotund, pettite, dominant, vapid, insecure, ditzy, confident, wonderous, old, curious, drunk, guilty, young, skinny, rubenesque, and muscular people as most others do.
Personally it depends on any and each particular day.
If you find that one you spend every day with them without thinking about the parts that are missing - you have found your beauty

It's extremely immature to assume that every woman who criticizes another woman is jealous. In fact, it sheds a bad light on women in general.
When I walk down the streets with Mr. Chilly Willy and I see a pretty girl, I nudge him and say: Isn't she pretty? When we watch Grey's together, he's annoyed, because I won't shut up about Izzy. I'm a huge fan of female beauty.
Taste, people, it's a matter of taste.

Do we have any evidence of that? And is it really better to be the 'plain' woman that a man will marry even though he is always wanting to be off doing somebody else, or wishing that you were hotter? I agree that many men can feel insecure or threatened by the prospect of being with an in-demand female. Maybe they fear someone will steal her away or that she is more likely to cheat because she has more options. As for the respect part, there really are some drop dead gorgeous women who are also educated, have their own careers, and are kind. Even if superficial beauty is achieved through ps and other cosmetic means it doesn't indicate that the woman has nothing else to offer. I will admit, though, that many hot girls don't nurture other aspects of their identity and nothing grates me more than seeing a beautiful woman open her mouth and let the stupid fly out, or prove that her insides don't match her outsides. That is a letdown.
Seriously.....and this is retorical.....how long is a piece of string?
I agree that the article is bullshit. Yeah, men fall for a woman's eyes, for sure. Physical attraction is a big part of it but also a woman's personality, her confidence, maturity. Esp. when we're talking about relationship material.
I've noticed that many times the boyfriend and me have completely different opinions on beautiful women. We do agree on Monica Belucci and Salma Hayek but when I start raving about, say, Cate Blanchett I might get a blank or the comment "She's too thin". I always tease him when he's going on and on about a girl being hot but at least I've ruined Charlize Theron for him when I took him to see Monster. I need to do something about Salma Hayek now... Perhaps Frida's unibrow will work.
Exactly.Taste, people, it's a matter of taste.
One man's trash is another man's treasure.
