REFLECTIONS ABOUT BEAUTY
by Marcia Powell

 

As a matchmaker, I couldn’t help but notice that beautiful women would be sought after, no matter their emotional, mental or spiritual state. Why is this? I thought about beauty itself—beautiful women (or men), beautiful cars, beautiful gems, beautiful clothes, beautiful houses, beautiful scenery, beautiful boats, etc. That which is beautiful tends to be desired by human beings. The problem is that the person usually wants to POSSESS these things. You’ve probably heard the term “trophy wife.” Thus, I think it is very important for women to recognize this phenomena. They need to confront it and then figure out how best to deal with it.

I want to stop here and give credit to those men who are NOT fixated on beautiful young women. But my point is that women need to understand the genetic programming.

This leads to the issue about weight. A study of men’s profiles finds that the vast majority indicate that they want a woman who is not overweight--even though they themselves may be. Double standard? Yes, of course. But if it exists, then it should be confronted.

Most of us would agree that obesity is not a survival condition. And most of us also know how challenging it is to prevent it or handle it.

No matter how wonderful a woman may be, a romantic relationship involves bodies and sex. If the guy can’t get the idea of kissing you and making love to you, he may well consider you a wonderful friend, but he will look elsewhere for his mate (sexual partner).

It should be noted here that the vast majority of people who are married, or have a mate, are NOT “10’s”. But it should also be noted that in the past, people usually got married when they were young and more physically attractive. Then they got old together. Divorce was not an option, or at least, not common.

This is the first time in modern history that there have been, thanks to easy divorces, as well as other factors, so many single older people.

You then add to this phenomena the “brain washing” accomplished by movies, TV, and commercials which tend to equate beauty and sex with real love, and the problem magnifies.

Thus, I think you can see how this issue of “beauty” is part of the problem older women have to deal with when searching for a mate.

Love, Marcia
