Quite a few years back I read an article in Cosmopolitan interviewing lifetime bachelors about their attitudes toward dating, women, etc. Several mentioned that their ideal woman, in fact the only type of woman who would be good enough for them, would have to have the "three diamond" look to her legs: when her feet and knees were together, she should have 3 gaps showing daylight.
And even if this perfect woman could be found, she would still have to be able to guarantee him that she would never put on weight.
My ex-husband thought that the correct weight for a 5'4" woman was 100 pounds. At the time I was less than 130 and, in his opinion, morbidly obese. Whatever.
Oh good something new to obsess about! Honestly before I started reading this forum I was blissfully ignorant. I thought the current weight I'm at now, was alright, I've since learned 10lbs less would get me in the "look good naked category", I thought wearing a size 8 was okay, then I learned I should strive for a size 4. Now I'm pretty sure I'm a freak because my legs don't touch at all, short of surgery I don't think they ever will.
How do we go from judging the minutiae of our unique shapes to loving them? I think for myself I may have to limit my reading here.
Life is death. We all take turns. It's sacred to eat during our turn and be eaten when our turn is over. RichMahogany.
