I was at the gym today (uhh do I even need to say that) and was having a pretty interesting convo with some coworkers regarding faces versus bodies. It was us 2 girls and a guy. We asked the guy, what’s more important a face or body and without thinking he said “body”.
Because the answer kind of shocked me I went onto facebook and asked you guys what you thought was more important. You said face, eyes, and smile. Hm, that’s what I thought!
But I later confirmed this body answer with a few other guys. It wasn’t just him. Apparently a hot body with an okay face is “more points” than a nice face with an okay body. Hmm…but why??
I went on to do my workout as I kept thinking and thinking about what he said. Could it really be true that attractiveness can be earned? Prettiness can be created and controlled?
The answer…YES. At least in the eyes of the onlooker. Not all of us are born models. But luckily, we can control the way we look. Of course I don’t advocate unnatural methods of enhancement, but through working out and building more muscle/burning fat, you can increase and earn your attractiveness.
OK so maybe that’s obvious…the more toned and healthy you look, the hotter you are! Yes yes…big duh, but what I am trying to say is that your potential mate gives bonus points to those of us that take care of our bodies. Now I don’t know why a hot bod with an okay face is “worth more” than a pretty face with an okay bod, but it gives the greater population of us a chance to play in the same league as people who are born beautiful.
I guess it’s sort of like being born into a rich family versus being a hard working entrepreneur. In the end you can make the same money, but you got there for different reasons.
BIG SIDE NOTE: Of course other things to keep in mind that play into the whole attractiveness factor – poise, confidence, smarts, a nice smile, inviting personality, and all that jazz that you can play up to make ourselves sexier.
