I hear it all the time, and so do you. Men want perfection, apparently, Victoria's Secret Models. I wouldn't know since I'm a guy, but that's apparently what all of us men want, according to the ladies. We're oh so demanding and girls just don't have time with actual lives to meet our demands.
Ladies. Get real, grow up, and stop griping. Men don't ask for a whole lot. Let's break down what an attractive woman looks like, and how women so easily mess that up through laziness or stuborness.
Here's a few women who have graced magazine covers and been lauded as sex symbols.
Kate Upton. Good face. Long hair. Big breasts. Looks like she doesn't really work out that much, nor starve herself. To a part, she was lucky with genes. In bigger part, she's basically just taken care of herself. Simple reality also is though, with a different hairstyle, and just a few more pounds... she would barely get a second glance at the local Starbucks.
Speaking of which, another sex symbol who aptly demonstrated how easy it is to ruin your looks. Jennifer Lawrence. (Yes, I totally googled her nude pics at Celebgate)
In both pictures, she is clearly on her A-game and ready to be in media view. Yet a simple haircut difference makes her go from a sex symbol to just a pretty/cute girl, nothing remarkable. And that's with her plainly being made up and ready, not strolling down the street to a local store incognito. Both Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton are plainly showing the importance of hair--ladies, keep your hair long, and take care of it. It makes a huge difference! Yet how many women decide to main their hairstyle?
Another prime example of how fickle looks are--Emma Watson. Recognized by men almost universally as a beautiful girl, even when she was jailbait. She also demonstrates that you can go from "beautiful girl" to "she's probably a lesbian" in just one haircut.
Weight is important, true. The flip side is--weight isn't that hard, unless you are of the few that actually has a medical condition. Guys aren't demanding victoria's secret bodies, and most guys would be just fine with this sort of body.
No, you all can't have breasts like that, but you can be in at a decent weight like that. (no, she's not perfect, but the vast majority of men don't require perfection.) We all have time for what we want to do--and if you want to be attractive to men, you can cough up $15 a month and hit the gym a few times a week. Combine that with eating decent and not stuffing your face, and fitness is not elusive, as all we gym going men know.
In short, ladies, stop griping about "shallowness" and better yourself if you want more, and higher quality, male attention. It will take some effort, but overall it's not that hard to polish yourself up and shine!
