Plastic surgery to improve dating success?

I watched a news report recently that featured a young lady who made the decision to get plastic surgery in order to improve her dating choices. Apparently, her chin, nose, or whatever body part she displayed on her online dating pictures did not garner the dates she really wanted.

She truly believed that her flaw was the source of her dating disappointments. I don’t know if this is extremely sad/disturbing or if it is a sign of the times. Are we becoming more shallow?

The idea that we have to chase some standard of beauty to attract people who seek partners solely on their looks just does not sit well with me. Obviously, we won’t to feel confident and attractive to people, but at what cost?

I wonder if the young woman ever considered writing a new profile instead of getting plastic surgery. Why does changing the outward appearance become more important than finding someone who likes us just as we are?

Maybe I am being too critical? What do you think. How do you think plastic surgery impact our dating habits?

Have you ever dated someone who has had a little nip/tuck? Was their improvement/change the thing that actually attracted you to them initially?

Plastic surgery is not necessary. Dating is all about personality and confidence. It doesn’t matter if you are the most handsome/beautiful person alive, if you have the personality of a wet mop, then nobody is going to want to be around you.

No, I’ve never knowingly dated someone that went under the knife. I’m totally turned off by individuals that are hung up on looks. Yes, there must some sort of physical attraction, I understand that. But for EVERYTHING to hinge on looks or the inability to live beyond natural flaws and imperfections is a turn off. No one is perfect. And if (you believe) so, time will handle that.

When people asks for pictures of me prior to meeting, that’s an automatic 1.5 strikes.

Plastic surgery for a date??? Much better if you use you car to get a man or woman. At least your doing something crazy to your body http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JcWsEBhxTI

I used to think that if I got gastric bypass then the men would fall at my feet. I look at my friend who was a 1st runner up to Miss Georgia and all of my other hot looking friends and they have a hard time finding a good man. They have great personalites but the guys are duds. So now I see that looks really don’t matter a whole bunch. I would rather sweat it out in the gym and lose weight the healthy way….

Good Morning, Bloggies!

On Topic~ I think that if the plastic surgery is something you did for yourself, then so be it. If you did it to get a date, then you get what you put out. You will attract someone who is only looking at your exterior if that is the package you are selling.

Off Topic~ I missed you guys on Friday! Hope everone had a great weekend! Is the coffee bar open yet?

Let’s just admit it and not sugar coat:some folks are just too daamn ugly to throw off any residual semblance of self esteem. So I would understand the feeling if a chic thought that was her way out.

But an ugly chic with personality will do it.

Look at Opprah! On looks alone she and Stead aren’t a match,unless he went for the money!

I hope i’m not making this up but wasnt there a story of a guy suing his wife because she failed to let him know she underwent major plastic surgery prior to them getting together? Something about their child being very unattractive and he couldn’t figure out why…come to find out the kid took after the mom. I suppose the wife came clean and showed him what she previously looked like.

slim – gotcha. and for the record I do not (yet) have a muffin top. lol. I’ll also say that in my opinion a lot of folks will say they are having such procedures for themselves but I have to wonder. I bet many say that because it’s the “socially acceptable” answer but I’m sure many do it for other reasons including what other people think. while that might not necessarily be the exact same thing as doing it to get a date I’m sure they kind of overlap.

I’m not a proponent for plastic surgery, so getting it done to land dates is something that I would never consider. If one is only attracted to me because of my looks, then he in essence is not attracted to ME!

Hey Cel…I was gonna wait until you got online!

I had a blast Friday night. I danced so much!!! Things got a little weird between us…don’t really know why. He did stay the night, but he snuck out in the morning without even saying goodbye. He left my front door open and two of my cats got out (one who is deaf) and I called him because I was freaking out about not being able to find him…Anyways…he disrespected me a couple of times on Saturday. No need for a lot of details, but we made plans for Sat, then I didn’t hear from him for a while…I heard from him late, he said he was coming over later, then he didn’t. I’m pretty sure he got drunk and passed out.

Well…I’m over it. My feelings aren’t even hurt…I’m not upset about it. He did text and call early yesterday morning while I was asleep and at one point, I just texted him that I was sleeping so that he would leave me alone. I’m over the infatuation. It was much better when he was out of town!!!

At first, I was trying to overanalyze what may have happened Fri night, but then I just decided that I did nothing wrong. If he likes me like that, he’s gonna have to work extra hard for it. Even then, I may not give in. I would like a friendship and that is all. You don’t disrespect me and get away with it easily. My eyes are open and he’s so much like my ex. Maybe that’s why the crazy attraction, yet some replusion. I hope to be able to see him sometime this week and I will tell him that you should not treat a friend the way he treated me.

Single and Happy I knew I should have kept my $15 in my pocket!

One good thing is that I’m not heart broken or worried about it. That tells me I’m getting stronger. Normally, I would have been so depressed yesterday, but I think I was more ticked off from Sat. He has already texted me again this morning.

Oh…and…I think I got my answer about his drinking without having to ask…No can do!

Bluzy – I’m sad to hear that but you gotta do whatcha gotta do and disrespect should always be first and foremost for handing a dude his walking papers. My only assessment is that you should have sent him packing at the first sign of getting disrespect. I wouldn’t have let him spend the night, let alone getting a whiff of it. But the weekend has pass. In the future, don’t EVER let that crap slide, EVER!

Well, glad you’re sounding pretty upbeat overall.

One more Bluzy….block him, if you’re done for real…lol Remember the Waffle House dude? He called me a couple of times and was texting me every morning. All I needed was one convo that didn’t sound right. Y’all remember I already didn’t like his cockiness. I blocked him. It was funny too when he realized. I guess he tried to call a couple of times and it went straight to voicemail. I guess after the realization set in that he’d been blocked, he sent a text. I can tell by the tone of the text that there was a question mark on whether he’d been blocked. Yeah buddy, you’ve been blocked…is what I wanted to text back. He was like “hello??” and “you okay??” Umm, yeah, I’m splendid…lol I was like “hello” right back…and that’s all. I’m not in the market or shopping for bullcrappery.

Slim…I’m not 100% sure. I mean…I did drink a bit and was a little touchy feely, which I warned him I would be. He seemed to be digging his time with me. Even when we got home, he was still talking about what he was going to cook for me on Sat night. We were just chilling at home. I got into something sexy and pranced around in front of him and he didn’t seem to even react. I went to bed and he came up about 15 minutes later. By then, I had changed into a comfy t-shirt. We fooled around and barely had sex. He was still exhausted from his trip. At least I got mine! I may have messed up by being too excited and affectionate, but that still doesn’t give him the right to disrespect me by slinking out in the morning without a word. At first, I kept trying to think of what I may have done or said, but then I realized, that it wasn’t my problem! He doesn’t deserve me… He’s just like the others…

Are we becoming more shallow?

I’d say that jumping into the dating pool these days will put you in up to your toes, it’s so shallow. Online dating. Puh-leeze. Just a gut feeling, I’d estimate that less than 1% of those that participate in that get any really long-lasting positive results. It’s just another bogus Internet industry, based on people’s propensity for both exhibitionism and voyeurism, which is a very sad fact, even more so than the shallow character being displayed for all to view. On purpose. Look at me, look at me! Thpppppt.

Bluzy – Okay, so the “disrespect” was him leaving out without saying a word? Hmmmm, okay. I was thinking along the lines of maybe he lost his mind and called you something while out Friday or tried to holler at another chick. Hmmmmm, well I say do what you feel is needful. I’m one of those women that if I have an issue or problem with something my SO did, if I don’t say anything and “try” to let it slide, I can’t…lol It’s right there, top of mind. I just believe we treat people how to treat us. If it’s just petty nuances within the relationship, then yeah, I can let that go. But blatant disrespectful, if I’m not “out with it”, there’s only so long I’m going to hold it. I said that to say, be out with it. Don’t let stuff slide. If so, you’ll be getting that, if not worse treatment for years to come. :) :)

I think I lost 5 pounds from dancing and sweating!!! LOL

Yes, I was drunk, but I wasn’t stumbling or anything. Just very affectionate and flirty. Also…another way of being disrespectful was that I asked him to drive and we took my car because he has tools in the back of his truck (and his seatbelts are defective). I had mentioned to him about being a good boy with the drinking because he was driving my 4 month old car. I didn’t think about it until the next day, but he did have a couple of drinks at the show, then when we went out afterwards, he had two drinks. JUST like my ex would do!!! At the time, I didn’t say anything about it because I was drunk, but it does tick me off that he still drank when he was driving my car. Alcohol problem…I think so!!!

Bluz~ Let me give you some facts. For the average person, 1 drink will put you over the legal limit if you drive within one hour of drinking it. There is no way, in the state of GA that you can leave a bar after having a drink that is NOT breaking the law unless you have a DD or take a cab. There are services (such as SafeRide America) that will pick you and your car up and take you home for about the same cost as a cab. Before you tell me you can’t afford a cab, on the cheap end, defending a DUI will run you between $5,000 and $7,000. Not smart. Especially on a weekend. Comon will be getting off of her soapbox now…

Heck, I didn’t cry but I wasn’t exactly skipping either…lol You have to get “down there” and show them EVERYTHING. From keeping clean to knowing how to dispose. Ugh!

Howdy folks.

On topic: Eh, whatever floats your boat. Personally, I’ve never been a big fan of plastic surgery, but maybe that’s because the only time you ever really notice it is when it just doesn’t look right. But hey, if it makes you feel better about yourself, then knock yourself out, I suppose. But it’s not my bag, baby. Of course, if I became disfigured somehow, my opinion might change. I did actually have one doctor try to pitch me on getting a prosthetic nut. My thoughts were 1) who actually thinks nuts are aesthetically pleasing to look at even when you do have a matching, symmetrical pair, and 2) why would I want a foreign, artificial object sitting in my nut sack right next to the only good nut I have left? :shock: Never went back to that doctor…

Lady~ Sautee some garlic and onions in olive oil. (About 5-7 minutes) Add seasoned oxtails and brown. (About 10 mins depending on how many you’re cooking) Add water to cover. Once it boils, turn on low and simmer 2-3 hours with rosemary, basil, season salt, black pepper, and a pinch of oregano. Once oxtails are tender, add a can of diced tomatoes or two. Let simmer another 30-45 mins. Done! Make some rice to go on the side and you’re set.

C~ I’m with you on the okra and tomatoes. My granny used to make that and I still love it. Also, fresh tomatoes and cucumbers in vinegar with salt & pepper. Yummy!

Lady~ The trick with the water is to cover the oxtails and keep them just barely covered. If you get too much water they have no flavor and if you don’t get enough they are dry. Also, try adding chicken stock or bullion to the water. That adds some real zing to them.

Lady~cool beans :-)

You won’t need anything…just the mix. The meatloaf is soooo tender…Yummy Do you every make (real) mashed potatoes with your meatloaf? That’s all I will eat with mine. I hate boxed potatoes…ugh

Your meal sounded delish. Meatloaf sandwich the next day is delish!!! I will say though, meatloaf is one of those things I won’t eat out too quickly. Only at Okay Cafe…uggggh, TO DIE FOR

We did yellow rice last night though because for some reason the beau acts like he grew up in China or Japan. That fool will eat rice everyday I’d let him. I try to encourage him to eat more veggies which is why I made him spinach. I personally cannot stand cooked spinach. i’ll only eat it raw in a salad. I’ve attempted mac-n-cheese several times. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes not so much. lol

Okay, that was funny….lol I’m not a big rice eater. I’ve had cooked spinach only once. A cousin was keeping the kid for me a few years back, she’s neice to the caterer I mentioned and she can throw down as well. When I picked the kid up, she’d fixed me a plate for dinner. Cooked spinach, which was half bad, smothered pork chops and a baked potatoes smothered in gravy and cookies she and the kid baked (for me). It took me literally, two days to eat all of that. I asked her how in the world did she eat like that EVERYDAY?! I can’t even lie, it was good like them old folks use to cook.

Leggs – Parking was absolutely crazy because the show was sold out! How about a cop sent us down one of the side streets where people were parking, a nice neighborhood. We had to be I know about a mile away from the arena. We were walking with our coolers and tv trays and I spotted a golf cart parked in front of one of the houses. There were a few adults sitting in lawn chairs, a lady celebrating her 40th birthday, and about 5 kids playing at the house. I remarked to hubs that if that was my golf cart I would be offering rides. You guessed it – the minute we approached their house one of the ladies said they were offering rides $5 per person! Since we were so far & had not had to pay to park, it was a bargain and my hubs quickly whipped out a 20 for us and the other couple with us! It was an absolute Godsend!LOL!!

David Culbertson was wild! He & Sanborn are touring together this summer. He was just so passionate! At one point, he stood on the OTHER side of the keyboard and played from that side! Tore the trombone up and you know Sanborn tore up that sax! A fabulous evening!!

on my son’s graduation day he told me that he remembered my telling him on that first drive over to drop him off at school that he had better not call me talking about college wasn’t for him. I apparently told him that if he dropped out of school he would be homeless because he was not coming back to my house. I bust out laughing because I didn’t really remember saying it but it sounded like something I would say. he obviously believed me because he handled his business.

Comon I’m sure some will try to compare it to the movement of the 50’s and 60’s, but to me it’s different, because we never have to spend any money there.
