I just read the entry “Photo Me” from the compilation “Requiem for a Paper Bag: Celebrities and Civilians Tell Stories of the best Lost, Tossed and Found Items From Around the World”.
Basically, the story’s about how this one pair, Alex and Amy, get into a photobooth and pull out a picture a couple took an hour before and Alex goes on about how the couple looks exactly like them. Amy disagrees and, in her head, says how she’s much prettier than the girl with the button nose and slanted eyes and how Alex isn’t as attractive as the guy in the picture he compares himself to.
We always get compared to strangers who share vague similarities - hair color, choice of eye wear, complexion. And, most of the time, the person comparing us to the stranger has his/her own opinion on who’s more attractive out of the two.
I’m not gonna go all profound and shit. The point is, criteria for attractiveness will always differ with each person. There’s always going to be some ugly-ass fuck who thinks he’s the shit and, because of the “inner beauty” and confidence and a positive self image he holds, he gets all the girls. But if some stranger sees this ugly fucker posing with some hot chick in a picture, the stranger’s definitely going to be all “holy shit, I’m better looking than that guy! Why don’t I get hot girls?” and then some other stranger’s gonna come along and think that the first stranger’s an idiot for thinking he’s more attractive than the charming eccentric fellow in the photograph. Same goes for the forever existing pretty girl who thinks she’s ugly as fuck because she looks nothing like the models in magazines and on the TV screen, even if everyone around her thinks she’s goddess.
Charm undoubtedly plays an important role in attractiveness. It really does. For this same reason, people would be willing to lick the bellies of unattractive musicians who posses the charm of a thousand James Bonds.
Stop taking offense when someone finds someone more attractive than you. People grow up surrounded by and experiencing different things that shape their tastes and preferences. You have no control over what someone says is pretty and what they think shouldn’t exist. You could try talking to them and letting them see things from your perspective but, face it, people don’t always get along. If some bastard still won’t accept your point of view after you’ve accepted his, leave the narrow-minded fucker alone. Just don’t go around shoving your ideas down people’s throats. That’s not nice.
Honestly, I’d rather date/marry someone who, at the very least, is half as charming as James Bond’s foot than marry some attractive sex god/goddess with an impeccable body who possesses the charm and allure of a mosquito.
This is one of the songs I’m currently working on. I’ve been posting a lot of covers lately and I felt the need to post some sort of original to assert that I’m not just some person who sings cover songs.
And in case you’re interested in the lyrics:
When we ran into reality With nothing but our hopes and dreams We scattered; we shattered. The second time around, it seems, It’s evened out a part of me; I’m armored.
