Ladies, Your Bodies Are Perfect!

Posted: November 4, 2013 in beauty, exercise, self-esteem, sexy, stress

Too often ladies in relationships have complained about their looks.  I get that.  We men are visual creatures, so we appreciate good-looking women.  But, some women take things too far.  You buy into what they’re selling on TV and in the magazines and you short-change yourself.

Don’t do it.


First of all, I’m not saying don’t exercise or anything like that.  Exercise has benefits for what’s inside your body as much as it does your outside.  It is very important, but don’t think it should be a full-time job and lose hair over it.  Besides, if you’re in a relationship, then the only person you should focus on pleasing (besides yourself) is your mate.

If your significant other is happy, then why get depressed over how your body looks?  Sure, it helps to be happy with yourself, but your significant other is supposed to make you feel sexy.  If they’re doing their job, then there’s no need to stress about losing a few pounds or having a rounder butt or whatever it is that you think you need.  Besides, many women only need “enhancements.”

  • Maybe your makeup doesn’t compliment you.  You don’t want to look like Ronald McDonald.
  • It could be that you don’t wear clothes that truly fit your body type.  Can’t shop at Wet Seal with a Lane Bryant body.  
  • It’s possible that you need to step your shoe game up.  Sneakers probably shouldn’t be an everyday option for women over 21.

There are plenty of “tweaks” that most women can make that can significantly enhance their look.  I’ve seen too many examples of “the girl next door” turning into a Hollywood starlet almost over night.  That could be you if you simply take time to honestly evaluate yourself to determine what would accent your look.

Don’t stress.  Don’t spend money on unnecessary surgeries.  Don’t kill yourself in the gym.

A lot of you may not think that you have the perfect body, but you’re perfect for someone and that is what’s important!  Embrace what you have and if you need to “fine tune” yourself, then do so.  But, be happy with who you are and stop letting society dictate what is beautiful.

A good man wants a good woman.  If she looks like a model, then great, but the main thing is that she’s good for him.  We do want you to look good, but we only care about our standards.  My lady doesn’t have to be a perfect 10.  She just has to be perfect for me.

Do we put way too much focus on trying to look like what we see on TV and magazine covers?

Don’t believe the hype.

    It's true that there are subtle ways to “upgrade” your look without going over the top…another benefit of doing so is that it'll make you *feel* sexier…which leads to more confidence, right?

    I wonder how much those Maxim covers are photoshopped! We can't live up to ideals that aren't real. Thanks for this post, Q!

    Thanks for this Q! What's important is to be comfortable in your own skin. That doesn't mean you have to go to extremes. Beauty comes in all forms, shapes and sizes. It's hard not to compare yourself to others though. What's also important is to make your partner feel good about themselves and don't tell them they're attractive to you but SHOW them. Great post!!
