A guy thing

Guys say there are women who are obviously beautiful. The moment you see them, you just know they’re beautiful. You don’t have to convince yourself. Neither do the guys have to convince each other that the woman they’re looking at is beautiful. These are women who are consistently beautiful. They are the favored ones who sleep looking gorgeous, wake up looking gorgeous. And all this, without much effort. Yes, life isn’t fair at all. 

Then there are those who are beautiful -- but inconsistently so. Sometimes they’re stunners. Sometimes they look ordinary. Maybe they lack sleep. Or it’s a bad  hair day. Or the lighting was wrong. Or they didn’t wear the right make up. Whatever. There are women who are not consistently beautiful. But they can be really beautiful, on a good day. 

Then there are women who just think they are beautiful. (I had to glare at my male friend who said this.) This is hard, the guys say, because women who think they’re beautiful (but are not) tend to flaunt themselves. They compensate by being fashion plates. They take pictures of themselves a lot, and leave you no choice but to look at their pictures. They make innuendos about how beautiful they are, or tell stories (imagined or not) about how guys stare at them and don’t leave them alone. Hard to believe, say the guys, but they just let it slide. Leave them to their delusions. 

Guys say it’s hard to understand why a woman would insist she’s beautiful when she’s not. Maybe her husband or friends tell her she is, for whatever reason, and she believes them. But she ought to know better, the guys say.  Women who think they’re beautiful, but are not, make others feel uneasy and uncomfortable.  

Then they say there are women who are beautiful but don’t know it. These are rare. Very rare. They’re the best ones to watch, the guys say, because they’re so natural. So unself-conscious. So clueless that they’re beautiful. No matter how hard they try, they cannot, cannot, cannot ever make themselves ugly. They’re nice to watch and be with, say the guys. These women are easy to get along with. Some can even play a mean game of basketball -- and still look fabulous in an old tee and ruined shorts. 

Then, they say there are women who are beautiful and who know it. They’re head-turners. And are rather complicated, the guys say. Some are self-conscious and artificial. Some, annoyingly vain. But some carry it rather well – however, they won’t ever let you forget how beautiful they are. That can be quite disconcerting, the guys say. 
And then, there are beautiful women who are shy. They know they’re beautiful – well, because they’ve been told a million times. But still, they’re shy. They’d rather that you didn’t mention at all how beautiful they are. You’re not to stare at them either. They get quite annoyed if you do, and they’ll quickly walk away.

Then there are women, they say, who are semi-beautiful. And semi-plain. They’re not going to make a guy look twice, but they’re all right to look at. They’re middle-of-the-roaders. Guys say that some of these women compensate by dressing up well. By being good conversationalists. By being smart and interesting. And guess what? These are the women that many men end up marrying! Why? Well, because they’re not high maintenance. They’re not intimidating. They’re level-headed about their looks. On their wedding day, with make-up and all, they can even look fabulous. 

Guys say that if a woman is beautiful but not too smart, it can be a real pain. Nice to look at – but not so nice to listen to. However, they say that some guys will settle for a beautiful wife who’s not too bright if she can cook up a storm. Or can manage a home well. Or is good with kids. But just get ready for a lifetime of not-very-profound  conversations, and maybe, fights over maxed-out credit cards. Beautiful-but-not-too-bright might mean they’ll spend a lot for clothes, bags and shoes, make-up, etc., without caring a whit about your finances. 

Now the real challenge, they say, is a woman who’s both beautiful and intelligent. This one fits under the cliché category, “Beauty and Brains.” These women are quite intimidating. Very hard to handle. Very hard to replace, should the relationship fail. They are, of course, attractive to the opposite sex. So the results could be murderous and disastrous. Beautiful and intelligent women can easily replace their mates. That’s a no-brainer, the guys say. And this can usually be the root of some crimes of passion. 

However, the upside is that these women are magnets for success. They’re slam-dunk assets. Want to impress people? Bring a beautiful and intelligent woman with you, the guys say. If the boss is beguiled or bewitched by a man’s beautiful and intelligent wife, then success comes faster and easier for the husband. 

Of course, we know that guys are visual creatures. So they’re attracted, first of all, to what they see. The true test, however, is a woman’s character. She can be beautiful, and  she can be intelligent – but if she lacks character, that’s a huge problem. We know that not all the beauty, and not all the Botox in the world, can cover up major character flaws. 

Now if a woman comes along who has beauty, brains, and  character – that’s the trifecta for a prefect catch!  But most of the time, she’s already taken. 

So if you happen to find her first, don’t be an idiot. Never let go of her!  You’ve just hit the jackpot! That’s what the guys say. We had better believe it.
