Have we all seen commercials for the CW's latest gem, Plain Jane?
Each week they give an average, not-so-attractive woman a makeover. Hair, make-up, wardrobe, even confidence building exercises! Then the no-longer-plain Jane surprises her crush and tells him how she feels. Hopefully now that she's a knockout, he'll fall in love with her!
Really? Is this what we're teaching our daughters? "If you look hot, the man of your dreams will love you!" I'm all about bettering yourself whether it be your health, your appearance or your attitude. But do it for you. Don't expect it to cause the object of your affection to fall for you. Chances are if he's known you for more then a few months and hasn't developed feelings for you, he's probably not going to. At least not the kind that will last. It's no way to start a healthy, long lasting relationship. And chances are Mr. Right isn't perfect either. But do you think he's gonna go whiten his teeth and get a stylist? No.
So, ladies, do what you have to do to make yourself happy! In time the right man will come along, and he will love you for your inner and outer beauty, and he will accept you as you are!
