Dating - Does The Outside Matter?

Make-up may be my new true love.

It's beginning to become an obsession that I can't help but indulge. What's funny is the type of reaction I get from women and men when I have a full face of make-up on. And, when I have my hair down and out Angela Davis style.

Strange how the outside effects people.

Yet, it makes sense. Since all we have is the outside to go by, that's where we look. but, here's the question --

Why does make-up, clothes, and hair matter so much?

Why do these things attract a certain type of fella or woman who would otherwise not hit on you if you looked different the night before?

I think it's a hard question to answer. Because part of it is attraction, just basic attraction. But, part of it is also an image. Wanting to be with someone who will fit into your hot requirement.

But, let's face it, sometimes we can't help what packaging catches our eye. If I got a gold ring and it was wrapped in newspaper, I would be reluctant to open it. But, if it was wrapped in beautiful silver, slick paper, I'd be hella excited!

So, maybe we're like wrapping paper. Maybe it's all about how we package ourselves to the public. I don't blame people for it, because I am the same way.

But, what I've found is that no matter how beautiful someone is on the outside, that doesn't guarantee the same beauty on the inside.

What attracts you?

Word to that.

Girl how do you think I got a guy to propose? Packaging!!!!

You think if he knew then what he knows now there would even be an us? Do you know what I look like in the morning?!

Go to MAC girl, but wait 'til I get to LA, then we can splurge together, and be made-over into hotties and take over that city
