Of course we all don't want to model. I'd rather eat.

Most teenage girls want to be models. Not too many grown women aim for that.

Now a swimsuit model or Playboy model...yeah if I looked like that and people told me so, I would be quite happy with myself hahaha.
And yet they get laid and married. Often even rich and famous dudes.

To each their own. Others don't like 200 lbs women ..

I'd like to model for Field and Stream magazine. I like those hip waders. Or maybe Woodworking magazine. Nothing like a good piece of wood to make a girl smile, right?

Does every woman want to model?
I don't. I've never wanted to be a model. Last time I checked, I was still a woman.
What is the need or sense for every woman to be a model?
There isn't, since I (and others in this thread) had said they haven't wanted to be a model.
What are women really seeking?
Uh, so many things, and yet so little. Happiness, fulfillment, affections... If you're wondering what those who do want to be models are really seeking, then I'm going to guess acknowledgement, validation, a good paycheck, a glamorous life (even if that's not the reality, that's the image many have), adoration.

Why is your title longer than the post . I'll say 1 thing though. Most women, like men, don't give a jack about models. As it is, they have other priorities in their lives.

My advice for women of future generations: Quit dillydallying over models, eat properly, study hard, and play hard. That's the sure path to succeed.

Women look forward to each and every day. Women scour their own closet to pick what outfit to 'model' the next day for work, play, etc. They love the attention. Yes, women love to model for all to see.

'Can't say that I ever wanted to be a model. As a kid I dreamed of being an actress, as I was fascinated by the acting world. Plus, I wanted to be one of those glamorous ones, like Sophia or Liz. Make a living role-playing and afford nice clothes to boot.

But modeling never intrigued me, even as a teen. I didn't admire the bony look, and I knew I would have hated having so many people fussing over me. But, again, it can be a make-believe profession and rewards well if you become a busy model. Unfortunately, few are.

I wanted to be a model. I thought it meant you got free clothes and free trips. Sounds good to me! I'd happily take money to wear nice outfits. If i got to take them home.

I also thought working for a fashion magazine would be a great way to get free clothes.
