Double Standards?

I am a little bit annoyed at the double standards that float around the net. Women complain when they don't consider themselves attractive, but actually are, just not "media attractive". They make it sound like they are so horrible and terrible to look at, when in fact they are quite attractive. They let media decide what they should look like and then get all upset when they aren't getting as much action as the women who are more "media attractive". And then, some "media attractive" guy walks into the room and they are all over him, going ga-ga over him and lusting after him, and wishing he lusted after them the same way. When a guy who is not "media attractive" says the same kind of things about himself, he is told to stop fishing for compliments and to stop being so negative and then if he lusts after some "media attractive" woman, he is called a pig. This kind of double standard gets on my nerves at times. I am not a "media attractive" man, and I DO NOT WANT a "media attractive" woman, I actually find most of them to be quite un-attractive. I am not happy with the way I look, but most of what I am not happy with, is beyond my control, so I have learned to accept it. I even make jokes about it. But its not all right for me to do it. Oh well, what can I do, it is beyond me to be able to make someone change their mind as to how they behave. Maybe its time some women started looking for men the same way they want a man to look for them, for what is inside. I know I could never be with a woman I wasn't friends with and didn't have some kind of emotional connection with and have a strong attraction to their personality...but oh well.

You are so right .... 'beauty' is the whole of a person .... not just the way they look. Inner beauty, being honest and true to oneself is so important, and more so when you are together for a longer time...

all you can change about others is the way you deal with them, react to them ...

Seems like it doesn't it that alot of women are empty and sold out on media illusions! Women missing in action. Never to be seen for the truer beauty they really have. Look like this magazine model, or I look like Paris Hilton. Please, Please pass the doggie bag. Ever wonder why women need all the trappings of glamour to make up what they feel is lacking, only really covering up themselves who they really are?
