Pretty Lonely

The Super has noticed an interesting phenomenon.  I noticed the trend as I strolled through the malls, visited the theater and while I walked through the city minding my own beeswax.  For the record, I believe that even if you have a face like reggae artist Shabba Ranks or Ugly Betty when she’s feeling stank, that everyone has their own special kind of beauty.  That said, there are girls walking the streets with bellies the size of army Special Forces tanks and with faces requiring bulletproof vests.  Some of these unfortunate ones stroll the sidewalks with mugs only slightly better looking than the Color Purple’s Ms. Celie.  But Don’t Cry for them Argentina, um,  I mean New York City, because they have what many of my slim and slammin’ friends do not have – boyfriends.  These ladies despite not being pretty in the face or slim in the waist, are sauntering down the avenue hand-in-hand with boyfriends and boo’s.  My Tyra Banks look-a-likes and Naomi Campbell wannabes are at home on Saturday nights eating Ben and Jerry’s.  What’s up with that? Can someone explain? Why are the pretty girls lonely while the less-than-lovely of the world have every Friday and Saturday nights jammed with dates? Are the lovely among us more picky and particular? Are they harder to please? Is there a reason all the pretty girls are lonely? Besides discreetly advertising in popular men’s magazines like professional pretties called prostitutes, what does a pretty girl have to do to get a date?  What do you think?

    I think the answer is in the question. Pretty girls tend to be caught up and mystified by their own beauty, whereas, the so-called ugly Betty’s of the world do not have to deal with that curse/obstacle. They can simply live and let live. Think about how much time a “pretty” girl spends in dollars and time to get pretty, stay pretty, and maintain her prettiness. Now think about what else she could do with only half of that time and resources. My feeling is this, if you got it, you got it. You cannot improve on perfection.

    I will go one step further. Think about this, the incidence of skin cancers and a host of other diseases are linked to a number of the chemicals that are in hair care products, skin moisturizers, etc. Therefore, why spend your money on stuff that is not meant for you or good for you either? The truth is that no matter what you look like on the outside, what do you look like on the inside? It is easy to say I am a beautiful person, but real beauty attracts beauty because it radiates from the inside out.

    Peace

    • PG, that was a well thought out reply so you obviously have a brain between your ears. Congratulations, you’re in the minority. Riddle me this though oh genius one. Isn’t saying all big girls have inner beauty as cliched and outdated as saying every hooker has a heart of gold? Haven’t we grown past these one dimensional stereotypes?

    I think all woman are beautiful in appearance. It’s what a woman is that tell you a lot about her. Like for example if she independant, confident and strong, or she can be sensitive and smart.
    Over the year the game that men play on woman like love them and leave them, have affect woman mightly to change who they really are. So that beautiful woman on the outside and inside became tarnish. So to that pretty lonely woman at home that feel she is picky, I say to you, you have every right to be picky and dont settle for less.

    I’ve just become acquainted with this website tonight and have only read two posts. Fortunately for me, I won’t be reading any more! Sadly it seems you, the writer of these posts, continuously focus on appearance; the outer shell. This mentality is what promotes women to feel they must walk around just about naked to be attractive to a man (or woman); that it’s more important what goes on the body instead of what goes into the mind & spirit. Very unfortunate! I don’t think you have a clue what being a REAL Super Sistah is all about.

    • Ah, a dissenter, I love it. The thing about being Super is that you are not afraid of your own voice or the voice of others that rise in opposition. It is a weak mind that cannot take criticism, so bring it on. You read two posts you say, wow, so many? With such thorough and in depth research you’ve drawn the conclusion that the Super is all about the pretty? I hope in school you didn’t approach your homework that way. I stand by my site and its message which is that to be Super you must attempt to be the best that you can be inside and out. Overall well-being is a cultivation of the mind, body and spirit. You cannot focus on one and let the others go to the dogs. That’s my opinion. You are free to disagree. You won’t be back? Well, that’s too bad but c’est la vie.
