Shallow as Hell
Posted by: andrew william, 10-Jan-2009I recently watched a movie called “Shallow Hal”. It’s an interesting show about a guy who was only interested in women with good looks, until he bumped into Anthony Robbins, a well renowned motivational speaker, who changed his perspective into seeing a women’s inner beauty instead of the outward appearance . The result, he began to visualize some of the most unattractive women as being really beautiful. He eventually falls in love with an unattractive fat woman, which to his eyes looked very slim and beautiful.
Everyone responds positively to good looks.
The $65,000 question is , are all men shallow? Are they only interested in beautiful women while personality and character traits take the back seat? Well unfortunately most men are hard wired to be “ Shallow”. If they were not attracted by beauty, there would, probably be no procreation. I believe there is a reason God created men the way they are. So don’t go bashing them for something they are not personally responsible for.
Inner beauty plays a very big role in the choice of a life partner, but unfortunately very few men would opt for someone less attractive, physically. The personality trait, though being important, always takes the second place when choosing a partner.
I have to say that is a load of crap. If everyone responded positively to good looks, none of us will be born into this world. God did not create men the way they are today. The media changed, and the opinions of men changed, their thoughts became cliched, as models grew skinnier, and make - up met with the 21st centuary.
Remember how women used to be big, and big was beautiful back then? Were men created that way by God then, and then God changed his mind and created men differently later in years? You can't tell me you only look at someone attractive, and give him a second look because of that? You're obviously shallow then. Ever heard a radio deejay on the radio, and fall in love with him just because he had a great personality and a great voice, then saw him in person and changed your mind?
It is shallow to judge people based on just their looks, it is even more shallow to asume that freely today.
Have to agree with you on that. But the way I see it is that it takes time to learn and appreciate a person's personality. And it's harder to approach a person who is ugly or even go near them and make an effort to learn their better qualities.
Skin deep beauty will only take them so far, but inner beauty will last a lifetime and that's where the men will have to learn and judge a woman by!
Men judge by the outward appearance. Only God judges by the inward appearance. So you need to understand that if you want to come out triumphant in this world. The beauty industry is a billion dollar industry. Every successful companies spend millions on outward appearance and good publicity.
b4 u post any other pix from the same batch..remember not to post mine!! ahahahha esp not in this topic andrew!!! hahaha
Its a fact that guys are visual people. We have to just accept it. Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Women on the other hand are emotionally attracted. They go for specific characteristics and other traits rather than looks. A women can also be at times visually motivated, such as the way a guy dresses, carries himself etc.Everybody has their own taste and preference.
