So this has been a pet peeve of mine for some time now. But I really only decided to write about it a few days ago when it came up again in a discussion with a friend of mine. My friend had phrased a question to me “Do you think guys like girls with long hair or short hair?” Now this was a mis-phrase by her but it brought up one of my biggest pet peeves. Guys don’t like girls because of how they look. Or at least they shouldn’t. Guys like (or should like) girls because of who they are and not what they look like. Our society has warped our understanding of relationships. Nothing is the same anymore because everywhere people look they see famous celebrities. And you know what all the famous women celebrities have in common? They look beautiful. So all the time people are watching these movies and TV shows where all the women are hot celebs and the guys only want to be with them because of that. Suddenly women have this self image that if they aren’t like that guys are never going to like them, they are never going to get married, they are never going to make friends, eventually turning into; they will die sad and alone in a little hovel if they do not look amazing all the time. But newsflash people! Guys don’t care about how you look (at least the worthwhile ones don’t.) Guys care about you because they love you, they like spending time with you, and your just an all around great person! So remember this! It’s not because of how you look, you can look like an ugly hag but guys will still like you. Now of course this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care about how you look cause guys still like seeing you look beautiful but remember that it’s not going to be the reason a guy will fall in love with you. A guy is going to fall in love with you because of who you are so be the person God meant you to be and look out for that special person who will come for you in your life.
