How come if you are not A BARBIE you are overlooked....Page 11 of 14    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14)
I have been the "barbie" type before.. Did fashion runway modeling for 5years.. and found it to be so overwhelming.. Men want to conquer you, want you to be their trophy not their mate. They want you to shut up and just look pretty. I felt better about myself when I was considered average again.. (a little more weight on me, not always in makeup and nails done, not always in the eye catching drop dead wardrobe etc...)


Profound words, girl.

And you still got it. Too bad, I have a girlfriend.

Well, I have never even played with Barbies!!,, however have had my fair share of attention from men.. mmmm what does that mean?? Sex is fun and important to me as are looks (to some extent), better yet is a man who knows what he wants and what he is doing. I maintain, I do not need A man, however they are nice to cuddle once in awhile.


Haha... needs and wants... love cares nothing for those things... I don't need a woman, but that crap goes out the door when I fall in love with one... but yeah I totally get you... although I don't know about that cuddling with men stuff

The truth is that Barbie didn't like Ken that much. She just pretended to like him, you know for appearances, since they both looked good together, but one day Ken met Butch, and well, he ran off with him. Barbie, then freaked, yes she freaked. Why? How could she be dumped by any man, she was perfect, she had all kinds of men drool at her feet, jump hoops, buy her dinners, give her cars, so to be not just dumped but dumbed for another man it was too devastating. So she met GI_Joe. But guess what, GI-Joe played her and dumped her in three weeks. Yes, sad but true. So Barbie began to freak, so she chopped her blond hair, dyed it black and got herself a tattoo and piercing. But the poor girl started to hang out with action figures from all the Lucas Movies, then when they wouldn't give her the time of day, she began to hang out at McDonalds. She reached her all time low when she went out with cheaply made figures that used lead paint and poor craftmanship. So she began to hit the bottle, sniff glue, and have precarious unprotected sex with any thing that could bend their legs.

Then one day when she was in rehap, she met Chewy action figure. He was very scruffy and had fleas, plus a kid on a bike ran over his foot and it was quite mangled. But he was there because he felt he was so misunderstood. The two hitting off really good. So good, that she died her hair back to blond. Then, because she had learned now how to be kinky, well shaved Chewys all body and had wild sex. Then while coming out of a cool club in LA, Chewy was cast to play the role of Cave men in the GEICO commercials. So Barbie tried to go back to work and maybe become the action figure for Jessica Simpson, but they didn't give her the job because she didn't look dumb enough.

Oh well, life is hell.

I totally disagree with you - there are a LOT of open minded men - the onl problem with that is they are only open minded to what THEY want and you that right off the bat that means sex.

I am old enough to be Barbie's mom but she sure didn't get her looks from me and I have found the people that I talk to are wicked nice. Keep trying and be honest.

Well some men find it hard that Normal Girls, Normal figures are completely different from Women who are Artificial (botox, liposuction, and the works).

The thing is some men find it that women that look like Barbie can sometimes be, a disappointment too. Not trying to be Judgemental or anything, But women that look like wouldn't take a chance on someone who isn't looking like Ken or Jean Claude Van Damme.
They would be looking for someone with the same Stature its all based on Stature of what society perceive to be very Superficial if u ask me.

I often tell my friends, and also people I meet right off batt, if you are looking for Barbie- I am not it. I am an average looking girl, cute with a pretty face but I am no Barbie. So if u are in search of one, Skip and collect $200 dollars & pass Go (its like monopoly).

Its society that makes people think that Looks are all that's important of every human being out there. If watch entertainment on TV, You see all this good looking couples splashed on the Screen. They are called the Ideal couple, they are always on the spotlight. They get married & when they split up its a huge controversy why because everyone Idolize them that they are the Ideal couple. But why did they split up, because either one is satisfied with what they've got.

Average women/Averaged men are people too. Despite they don't like Supermodels or Body Builder- they eat the same food, the drink the same water, they hurt & feel the same way. The only difference society makes them feel like the outsider because they are not up to the standard.

I have dated/been engaged to good looking men myself but to be truthful with you- Looks can be DECEIVING because Love wasn't based on what we felt for each other, its more of what People think when I was with them. They were more worried of what other people think of us, as a couple than what we are to one another. I have also been with AVERAGE MEN ( Average Joes) they are the most caring, affectionate, well grounded people I know that values the person.

In the "eyes of the beholder " if you are seaching for your heart. Being open-minded is a way of "seeing " others as well as being . Not everyone is opened to new way of seeing . Many stay blind because of old habits,easier routes, and less actual work on their parts. It would also follow that the one who is " asking/telling " has tried to improve their sight as well! Yes some are not willing to gain a better sight on the ladies around them. Every one has their own opinon, thus is the way of the "DATING "!

Same reason guys with crappy jobs get overlooked, because most of the world is shallow.

listen to your hearts people.
