Dating Advice: Ladies, Stop Worrying About Your Looks!

Written by Terry Hernon MacDonald

If you think you have to lose 20 pounds, go blonde, or get a nose job before you attractrepparttar man of your dreams, you're dead wrong.

Here's an assignment. Check outrepparttar 139866 wedding pages of your newspaper this weekend. Do any ofrepparttar 139867 brides look like cover girls?

Look closely. Sure, there may be a couple of model types among them, but most ofrepparttar 139868 women are average looking. Some of them resemble Phil Spector, for Pete's sake. What do they have that you don't?


Please do not fall intorepparttar 139869 trap of believing that you have to achieve a certain look to attract good, marriage-minded men. Whatever you do, do not size yourself up against other women.

Walk into every room withrepparttar 139870 knowledge that, whatever you look like, you're a winner. You have much to offer a man.

Guess what? Both guys ended up with women with at least 20 pounds on me, and years later, remain happily married to them.

I'm not suggesting you start pigging out on fast food and roamingrepparttar 139872 planet in a sweatsuit. And, certainly, you should practice basic hygiene. But obsession about your looks is an entirely different thing, and it's not attractive.
