Superficial side of the dating game

The last decade has seen a huge surge in plastic surgery and other body enhancing (distorting?) procedures. It’s not just the ladies who spend money on cosmetic procedures either.

How do you think this has changed the way we see each other on the dating scene? I read somewhere that guys are no longer into the “plastic” look. Does this mean natural is back in style?

I remember seeing pictures of a young man I was seeing that were only taken three years before I met him. I didn’t even recognize him! He had a completely different nose and an extra 30 lbs on his frame. What a difference a gym membership and a nose contour makes.

I thought of how much I adored his wit and sense of humor and wondered if he needed to change his looks to showcase these qualities.

It’s impossible to say for sure, and I never asked him about his slightly drastic changes to his face. I just wonder if he saw himself differently, which made him feel confident enough to present his personality to people.

Do you think we spend too much time focusing on image and the outer layer, while ignoring the good stuff? I mean, does it really impress anyone that you are in the gym all the time if you are a raging jerk with anger issues you have yet to address?

How much work should single people put into personal growth? What do you think?

How do you handle the superficial side of the dating game?

“I am getting a visual of you with a cheese grin as all this “technical wang handling” was going on!”

BMW — I have to say, it took a lot of concentration not to sprout a tree… Especially, on the first day. They basically draw a map on your body of the areas they’re going to zap — so this chick is literally drawing all on, over and around The Matterhorn. Side note: when she finished her mapping lines, she drew a little picture of Moby Dick on me. Those girls really knew how to heal… :lol:

Leggs — Ask and ye shall receive…

Roses are red

Violets are blue,

I can do with one nut

What most can only do with two.

Goodnight, peeps!

SWISS…”Black, Swiss, Slim and I need to hang out. We will get kicked out of somewhere and at some point piss off some folks and end up running from the cops all in one night.”

Now sounds like a good a$$ time! It’s wuoldn’t be my first night to end up like that! :lol:

SLIM…”Sounds like a perfect sequel or spin-off of The Hangover. ”
Sign me up for that film! :lol: We could have a reality show! Hell why not…everybody else does!

SWISS…you enjoyed their bedside manner? ;-)

BMW — Yeah, we should all hang out sometime. Somebody’s got to stay behind to bail us out of jail, though. I’m too cute to spend a night in the slammer. My virgin booty intends to stay that way… :lol:

@BMW ~ how can I bail you out if I’m among the ruckus? Is that your way of kicking me to the curb, my lil sis?
