women are too obsessed with the way the look because of ever-increasing competition for male attention with every year they grow older, and men do not usually care about how they look because men's sexiest body part is his thick wallet.

not that I agree with these statements, but on average (holding everything else equal), it is mostly true.

Most of what everyone said is true about guys and I am one. I do generally ignore dowdy women, not consciously but it just doesn't draw my attention. Guys, even married and ugly ones, just like talking with pretty girls because it lets them keep the little fantasy in their head alive of getting with her, even if they wouldn't in real life because they dont want to cheat on their wife. I'm logical about it though and I don't fawn over pretty girls and help them, I ignore them and the most attractive man to a hot girl is one who ignores them.

I know a ton of girls who think they are uglier than they are. Most girls I've dated believed they were less attractive than they are, thats why u often see kind of busted guys with hot girls a lot more than the opposite.

So why are all these women earning money then, having careers?

That's what they SAY, they say that just to fish for compliments. I've never met an attractive woman who didn't know she was, or very rarely, you can tell it in the way she carries herself. They know it, alright, don't let the 'oh I'm so fat! I'm so ugly!' act fool you, even if they seem critical it's cos they know they look good to men so they gotta maintain the power they have.

just because you get attention and men want to sleep with you doesn't mean that they love you or that we're any happier. and on the job? are you kidding? want that promotion? better take off those panties or you can forget about it.

you talk and no one takes you seriously because you couldn't possibly be intelligent. some will hate you because they ASSUME that your life must be roses. when in reality you have men and women who treat you like dirt because they're positive that you always get your way and they're not going to treat you kind like everyone else. but when you have a whole slew of people who all think the same way, you get treated really nasty by a lot of people, because they THINK that you get spoiled rotten.

and yes if i get a perk i feel i do deserve it. not because of how i look, but to make up for all the crap i have to go thru. because we get judged, discriminated against, envied, used, disrespected, and experience outright hatred all because of how we look.

believe it or not. take it or leave it.

this is my rant for today.
Yep.

Changed job to a more aged and sex diverse company opposed to being in an all 20-30 something female company before and found out that out the hard way. Not that I'm anything to sing about but I'm one of the youngest females in the company by default. I have to work in close contact with a fellow who talks more to my chest than he does to my face and I could hear him saying "she's stupid" next to my cubicle 1 minute after I talked to him on a regular basis when he couldn't even answer basic job related questions and I'm more educated and more experienced than him (having worked for 4 years in public accounting under a professor/boss). Other females in the department had to go out of their way to harp about my mediocre looks (when her skin looks like a pizza and she suns herself every chance she gets. Okay...) when I pretty much did everything I can to stay out of trouble with everybody. I will go back to graduate school and get my CPA license. Unfortunately I'm not loving this part of my career for now.

I don't understand this, why do people (usually men) say this? It is a game American people play (I know people here play "games" with each other) I know if I was ever interested in a man and he ignored me, I would completely lose interest so fast. My interest only remained with those who were receptive and responded likewise.

I actually feel the same about women who play 'hard to get.' If she doesn't seem interested in me I lose interest fast.

You're only attracted to guys who immediately start flirting with you? Ignoring the really attractive women because they get hit on constantly is the best thing to do for a guy. Someone who looks like Jessica Alba will probably be propositioned and flirted with by like 10 men a day so the 1 guy who acts completely uninterested stands out. The guy also has to be ok looking, if hes fat and ugly she won't notince being ignored lol. Thats a strategy you use if you expect to see the girl again, like if shes your coworker or a friend of a friend, if you only expect to see the girl once, you have to just kind of pick up on her normally.

He doesn't have to "immediately flirt with me" or fall all over me, and I don't like men who do that. Moderation and subtleness is key. But if he continues to ignore me and not aknowledge me and seem like a jerk then yes, I lose interest.
