Beauty Over Brains…

It seems like beauty is becoming more critical than intelligence, everyone wants the girl or guy who looks the part.  This plays out in the professional and the dating world.  You can work in the big corporations if you are willing to wear the same suit everyone else is wearing and look great wearing it.  Be careful if you want to tone down the makeup one day or show a little individuality.  Breaking out of the mold will get you noticed, but not necessarily for the right reasons.  Corporate big wigs want their underlings to look like models to the point where sometimes beauty can replace brains.

It does not change much on the dating scene.  The uniform for guys at bars is the same; loose fitting jeans, a t-shirt with a button down.  The deal is not much different for the girls.  We have more options but there is not much creativity.  We show up either in tight jeans with a sexy top, or a short dress (maybe with leggings to keep with the current trend).  And it is no surprise, the shorter the hemline the more guys will try to pick a girl up.  Even while talking to one woman, they will start checking out the bar to see if there is someone better.  Keep in mind just looking at someone tells you almost nothing, it is only when you talk to them that you find out if they are worth your time.

This is now to say girls are not doing the same thing.  We are checking out the scene looking for the tallest hottest guy in the room, the one who looks like he has the most money, the one who looks like he has the best ride.

So does that mean we should change what we are looking for?

NO!  I am all for raw attraction.  But, it would be nice if what was beneath the skin mattered as much as looking the part.
