Dating dilemma: Is their/your job too sexy?

I was bypassing the TV One network and spotted a show called Love Addiction. This particular episode featured Dr. Tartt, who has guest blogged on our MIA blog before, talking to a couple in distress. I am not sure where the addiction came in, but the woman was dating a guy who is paid to rub on dangerously naked women all day.

I started to wonder which jobs, careers brought a slew of potential dangers if you were in a relationship. Obviously a massage therapist has to look at women all day as they moan in pleasure (if he’s doing it right!), is pretty close to most sexiest jobs. What about an OB/GYN? Or a bartender?

Do you think that certain jobs or careers would require a super secure, totally understanding partner, for things to work?

I can not imagine having to constantly explain about “clients” to a significant other. Then again, what is it really like having to deal with your mate, basically flirting and turning on charm for a living?

What do you think? Would it bother you if you were dating someone in an industry that involved hot bodies and flirting? Are you in that kind of career now? Has it caused dating problems for you? If so, how did you handle it?

randy – re cute/ugly pregnancies. I was in the waiting room at the doctor’s office once. there was a little, skinny young girl there who was pregnant but rail thin with just a belly. then there was a great, big, wide, beached whale looking chick sitting across from her. I felt so sorry for the bigger chick. lol.

Speaking of the preggo thing again, my homeboy sent me a picture of his sisters newborn baby. I was like wow that’s a big boy. Come to find out, it was a girl…:shock: I think newborns are all pretty ugly when they 1st come out. It takes a few hours for them to start to gain some color and not look as swollen in the face.

disco, how does a parent tell their child that he/she is ugly? HA! “Suzy, I was drunk when I met your mother and she became pregnant with you….I say all of this to say to you is that if you ever hope to have a boyfriend get him drunk because you are ugly like your mother”

disco – To the outside, I would think that is the only way to act if you have an unattractive child. Especially if they are not so cute themselves – it’s all they know. To give the child a “heads up”, I say be as encouraging as you can. Help them develop their talents. Teach them to play up their best features. The child may grow out of it too. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder though.

I’ve seen some of the least attractive kids physically grow up to be outstanding adults. A lot do better than some that have grown up to get by on their looks.

purple – you crazy. they don’t have to say “baby you ugly” but they probably shouldn’t be filling the child’s head with “you so cute”. they might want to look for other positive traits to enforce. a pretty smile, pretty hair, an infectious laugh, something. tell them they are smart, funny, good at drawing, something. just don’t gas them up to think they are cute.

Slim – It seems to me a lot of times 2 rather plain parents seem to produce beautiful children.

Sometimes it’s all in how you fix the kids up too. Some are decent looking kids, but they always look unkept and unloved. I know a couple that has a baby boy. He looks like a little thug with a mohawk and runny nose all the time and wrinkled dirty clothes. I feel sorry for the little guy.

disco – I think alot of parents these days fill their kids heads with unrealistic notions. Not just the unattractive kids. Sometimes, heck most of the time, your kid is just average. Not saying you have to tell them that at all, but alot get their feelings hurt when they hit the real world and see they are not as special as they thought! That they are going to have to put forth some real effort to be thought of as exceptional.

My parents, expecially mom, were good at keeping it real with us. Mom would tell me there is always someone else out there that’s cuter, smarter, richer, etc. She didn’t kill the self-esteem, but she was realistic.

A fear of mine is that I could have an ugly baby (if I were to ever have one). You just never know! My mom’s best friend used to work at a pediatrician’s office and she saw it all. One day, a friend came in to see her with her new baby and all she could do was say, “what a pretty……..blanket!” LOL! I’d be afraid she would see my baby and comment on the clothing or something…then, I’d know my baby was ugly!

An Ugly Lawsuit – Sues Wife for Being Ugly

Hegang, Northern China resident Jian Feng was married to a pretty girl. Things were going well. They got pregnant, and a baby girl was born. It wasn’t, as it turns out, a beautiful baby girl. In fact, she was really ugly. Jian didn’t understand it. He was an OK-looking guy, his wife was gorgeous, so why was this baby so dog-ugly? His wife must have cheated on him! With an ugly guy! How dare she?

Desperate to prove that she’d been faithful, Jian’s wife showed him a picture of herself – PRIOR to her extensive plastic surgery. Uggo! Oh no! Jian freaked out, divorced his wife, and SUED her for $120,000. And guess what? HE WON. He filed a lawsuit that his wife had been deceptive and gotten him to marry her under false pretenses (so much for looking within a person to fall in love) so he WON.

Not only did the woman pay $100,000 for the surgery to make her pretty, she had to pay $120,000 to a guy who apparently only loved her for the looks she paid for. Oh well, at least she has her ugly baby to keep her company.
