There are days I could stare at myself in the mirror all day long.
I confess that I tinker with the idea of getting my over a meter long hair cut. Everyone loves me because of my hair and everyone tells me how good I look and how amazing my hair is. I guess when I cut them short I won't get the same attention as now and I don't like that.
Am I a racist homophobe?
A woman recently accused me of being racist. We were watching women play soccer. She asked who I found attractive. So I picked out a few females. All were white. So that was racist. Well nearly every player was white.
Later we watched women’s basketball. The only female I found attractive was a tall Nigerian. Again she said I was racist. She said I only liked her because she looked white. She had dark skin. Are Nigerians part white?
I don’t think my roommate knows what racism is. Each person owns there own body. They have a right to choose who they’d like to date. If a black Muslim only wants to date black Muslims that’s fine. If a white Hindi only wants to date Asians with a foot fetish that’s fine.
You also have a right to tell your children who you wish they’d date. Such as an atheist who only wants their children to date atheists. Your child has a right not to listen.
Racism would be if I tried to tell my black co worker they shouldn’t date whites.
I myself am very mixed. I think my roommate wants me to find the exact same people attractive she does. She mocks gays. Yet she knows which females are attractive? How?
Then she said I’m homophobic because of my answers no men.
She asked me which male athletes I found attractive. None. She says that’s homophobic. I told her I can tell her who I think women find attractive.
When I was a teen I assumed it was muscular men. I’m very muscular. I assumed that’s why women liked me. They always talked about my muscles. So I assumed they like body builders. Turns out I was wrong.
In college I realized women liked my face. So I’d ask who they found attractive. Tom. Val. Brad. So I decided that must be attractive men to women.
So when I answered that to my roommate she got mad. Apparently none of those men are attractive. So I asked who she found attractive.
Snoop. LaBron. Huh? I’m no woman so who knows. Snoop is funny, but is he attractive? He looks like a poorly kept Shaggy. LaBron looks like he’s never exercised; eats nothing but chips, and doesn’t know how to use a pair of scissors. That beard is not well groomed. His face looks kind of like a Wookiee.
So I asked to see a picture of her boy friend. 5’6”; 300 lbs; man boobs; several chins; bald head; his arms flop way down; huge saggy butt; giant flabby thighs, so that’s attractive?
Here’s my opinion. I think it’s great that she finds him attractive. He looks like the male version of her.
But I’m very fit and muscular. I have movie star looks. I don’t remember ever trying to decide whose attractive. I think my mind just finds women with good facial bone structure and strong fit bodies attractive. I think it’s a combination of biology and experience.
I was always asked out by the pretty females and the athletic females. I’m attractive and athletic. So that’s who I dated. That’s who I find attractive. But I dated blacks; whites; Hispanics; and Asians, so I don’t think I’m racist.
As for homophobic. I actually support gay people. But I can’t relate to being gay. How can I tell you which men are attractive? None of them attract me. I don’t see that as being homophobic. And how can I know which men women find attractive?
She also says I’m conceited because I say I’m attractive. Well she says I am. I have strangers stop and tell me how attractive I am. So am I conceited? I don’t find me attractive. But women seem to.
This is why I try not to talk to people about stuff like this. They get mad so easy.
Today I had two run ins with best friends of mine, and I'm putting this under stupidity because I know I'm vain but I still have my suspicions.
The first one was with a guy friend of mine. We've known each other about five years, and at one point were extremely close. We dated for an extremely short period before I broke it off, but that was four years ago or so, and he's now married with a child on the way, and he's so excited it's adorable.
Now, I moved away but am visiting, and so we got to talking when I caught him at work today. Everything's fine, we're talking about his future son and a woman comes over.
"Now I know you're talking to a beautiful lady but could you please do me a favour..." Friend immediately responds, "I'm married, she's just one of my best friends." (My response is, "take a joke, hun".) Anyway, my suspicion is because he felt the need to clarify. Why would he? It's stupid, but I think he has some lingering feelings for me (he admitted he loved me several months after "dating"), like I sort of have for him. Not that I'd ever act on it, and he's faithful, so it doesn't really matter, but I'd like to know.
The second one was with a girl friend of mine whom I've known for about eight years. We haven't seen each other in a long time but we're still really good friends.
Anyway, she's telling all about HER kid and boyfriend, whom she loves so much, have no doubt. But for a while now I've suspected that she may have a crush on me. She's polyamorous and wants a girlfriend with her boyfriend, so it's kind of plausible. But it's all the WAY she says things. She's always said I love you, but now they feel different. She says things like "night gorgeous" and "I miss and love you lots" which at one point I thought nothing of, but now...
I want to fly out there just to see what would happen.
Again, I know I'm just vain, but usually my feelings on this stuff are right. I guess we'll see, though I wouldn't mind hearing some opinions.
Ever meet a famous person? I met one once. We got along great. She tried to pick me up in front of my wife.
My wife got mad at me.
Eventually my wife divorced me. She said she couldn’t handle that other women ask me out.
But I never cheated. I never strayed. I only wanted her.
She says it’s not fair. I look young still. Is it my fault young women ask me out? I don’t flirt.
Well I’m very sick now. I hide it from her and our children. I keep giving her the chance to take me back. But she doesn’t.
She has no interest in anyone else. I’m her only ever love.
She admits now she only divorced me because her mom talked her into it.
This is for anyone reading this. If someone loves you don’t waste that. Especially true love. I’d die for her.
If you marry someone whose beauty stands out don’t expect others not to stare at them.
She got mad because a pretty semi-famous person tried to pick me up. I turned the lady down. It’s a compliment that you have someone others want.
All her friends would say your husband is the sweetest person I’ve ever met. He’s gorgeous.
She won’t even watch our wedding video. She’s beautiful. Melts my heart. I love her so much my heart aches.
But in the video as I walk in you hear all of her friends talking about my appearance. It bothers her. So she won’t watch it.
I cut off all my hair for her. Wore cheap clothes. But I look the way I do.
She also calls me arrogant. She says you think your attractive. No I don’t. I literally hate myself. But others think I’m attractive.
See she doesn’t know all of it. My beauty got me raped and assaulted as a child. I hate looking this way. But I can’t help that God made me look this way.
Well. I’ve stopped eating right. Not exercising. If she doesn’t want me then there’s no reason to be here anymore.
My poor health will take care of the rest.
It's very important to me to look good at every time. I didn't notice that I am addicted to make-up and clothing until my friends told me to stop. I spent all my money on mascara, eye shadows, lip sticks, dresses, shirts and stuff. It's kind of an addiction. I love it to try new styles and to create new trends.
And it didn't bothered me when I was late to appointments I made or when I ditched my friends.
My look was everything to me.
This was 2 years ago, now I'm 21 and I can manage it to go outside without wearing any make-up at all. It's a big step forward for me and I hope that I don't fall back into that kind of pattern.
