It's funny but this is how I imagine most of the women who post here, without the B-O-R-I-N-G . They look similar (like McMansions as you say) because healthy people actually do look similar to one another, especially when they've just come from an exercise class and are wearing the requisite attire. They've figured out what they need to do to be healthy (and wealthy) and they do it, no excuses or rationalizations requiring mental-gymnastics or individual, complex calculators. They pay attention to what's going into their mouth in the same way they pay attention to the line items on their budgets.7Wannabe5 wrote:Most of the women my age in my realm who would be deemed to be very attractive, look the same to me. I see them walking through the Whole Foods in the wealthy suburb north of me, and they look just like a row of McMansions. Like they all do the same workout at the same yoga or pilates studio, pick up the same assortment of prepared healthy stuff from the buffet, go to the same hair salons, buy their clothes at the same boutiques. B-O-R-I-N-G.
I guess the thing that struck me is that some of the women here are worried that it is not enough to be a McMansion/provider/smart/capable/fit/funny/strong woman and they are actually concerned about holding onto their men and their marriages. I wonder if that thought has even occurred to any of the men.
Ability to attract others. Is that a healthy gauge? It is definitely a currency so an investment in aesthetics might very well be justified. But is it healthy?7Wannabe5 wrote:I also refuse to give a damn about my ability to perform a pull-up so long as I am able to attract others with relatively more upper body strength to wield a pick-ax.
