In the quest for looks, are you forgetting the heart?

Today I was in a random conversation with a colleague of mine and the topic was ‘Arjun Kapoor’ and ‘Two States’. I was drooling over Alia and she was drooling over Arjun. I was made to realize that Alia is a kid and I retorted back saying that I am the same age as Arjun.

What came next made me think. I was made to realize that Arjun looks young and doesn’t look his age and bimbo, I realized that for many in the opposite sex that is what matters. How you look and present your self matters a lot. But, but, is that the only thing that matters?

Last week my conversations with my friends were not revolving around Barcelona or Road trips but on how I have to lose weight and how important is money in life.

I shudder to think everyday on the importance that has been put on good looks. Is the intelligence and the capacity to treat her like a queen of less importance? Two scenarios.

1. A guy who looks dashing and floors everyone around him. What are the chances of him being able to commit to a single girl? Out of the experience and things I have heard from people, FEW good looking guys withstand the urge to cheat and stay committed to a single girl.

2. A guy who gets a rating of 2 on 10 from the girls on looks but has the intelligence and will love her like a queen. Out of the experience and things I have heard from people, many of them are still looking for the perfect one.

What does it make us understand? Are the preferences and priorities changing? Is it ok to not stay committed or love her as much because that is going to be compensated by your good looks? Or it makes us understand that screw intelligence and screw the ability to treat her like a queen. Just start investing on Gym and model yourself.

Before you comment below that there are men who have the good things from both the scenarios, I would like to remind you that they are short in supply and in pursuit of them, the tag of #Foreveralone may just become permanent. 🙂

    I am girl and not good looking and I have come to realise that good looks or rather being fit is now compensated by intelligence/trust/loyalty.

    Being fit is about your discipline, how you treat your body and health, your commitment and inturn your confidence and your ability to make things happen, I believe that is what makes a person attractive and not just good looks.

    Both assumptions you make are farce, people in general astray in relationships, a large number of them, good looking or otherwise, both men and women and it is a whole different argument.

    I have come to believe that one need not be hot or good looking but one needs to be presentable, for their own health and well being then for others. Perfect example of Arjun Kapoor who shed kilos and workout for years to get to what he is now.

      @Pooja Thank you for instilling the belief that people still read my blog.

      Coming to the post. My post wants to focus on a simple point. Rejecting someone just on the basis of how the person looks is my point of contention.

      I completely agree with all the other points you made.
