At least it's natural, and not the reslt of some chemicals froma tanning salon. And she has sense enough to know about skin cancer...Sure it does't look as appealing as a deep tan, and also even the smallest skin blemish really jumps out at people when you are pale, take my word for it as another pale person!
I thik that's the main appeal of a tan,--it makes a chubby body look slimmer and also tends to fade out small skin blemishes, prominent blood veins, and so forth.
So, I've learned to value pale skin, and discount the fact that it isn't as airbrushed looking as tan or dark skin. With contrasting colors of clothes, pale skin looks ALMOST as good as tanned skin.
I much prefer it to the tan look, especially if it's not a natural tan. If a girl spends significant time in a tanning bed we probably won't have much in common, lol. Fair skin is definitely sexier for me.
It depends on the person and if it is the right tone of pale because you can be pale and look like you are about to die/ look greeish or blueish which is the type of pale guys or anyone find unattractive. Then you have healthy pale which is a warmer pale more pinkish and usually means rosy cheeks. Personally I am super pale but I have rosy cheeks and a tiny bit of a tan (it's tan for me but I'm still pale) so I look healthy and I love my pale skin and I have never met a guy that though I was unattractive because I was pale. Guys like girls that look healthy.
