I like to think I have a pretty good bullshit detector built up through years of people dropping out on promises or trial and error or however else you learn these things. That’s why I have very little time for the fake and bake attitudes I see around me. I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with it, because this is personal preference but if a girl seems fake in her appearance then in general guys can spot it a mile off.
I was having a conversation yesterday about attraction and how there’s no joy in dating a girl just because she looks good on your arm, you need a lot more substance than that, I believe one of my friends described it as being ‘like going out with a vegetable’. If you have opinions then you should announce them, don’t worry about offending because that’s the wonder of the land of free press and freedom of expression, you can say what you want as long as you can back it up, so just stick to your guns, it’s right, it’s all right.
Now onto the issue of fake tans and sunbeds, there is nothing ‘healthy’ about that look, if you want to look healthy go for a run or eat some raw vegetables. We live in England, we have just come through Winter, you’re supposed to look pale, it’s your body doing that, trust your body, it’s right, it’s all right. The idea of a girl getting skin cancer in the name of vanity is also highly off putting.
So just be yourself, even if you don’t know who that is on a grand scale because I don’t think any of us do, just be the you of today, and we can have a rethink tomorrow.
