May sound strange, but I have noticed time and again that normal women are somehow more interesting and cuter than all those divas with their perfect faces and bodies. I live in a very down-to-earth region of a rather poor country. Women here often smell of the lunch they have prepared instead of Chanel #5. One woman working at a supermarket here has amazing canines, almost a bit like Dracula, but when she smiles she is just so cute Other women have soft hair on their forearms, and it doesn't matter at all somehow. Many have excess pounds, but don't seem to bother. They are who they are and don't try to be anything else.

When I watch one of those TV series from the capital it often strikes me how different those women there are, both in terms of looks and what kind of woman they promote. I had such a girlfriend a long time ago, and it was over pretty fast, there was just no real connection. Just smelling her perfume was so sterile somehow.

So, what's more appealing, the natural or the metropolitan type?

I wouldn't call the women you described "normal"
Maybe for your "region" but here in America smelling like salami or whatever else you had for breakfast, lunch and dinner (ie B.O.) is frowned upon.

Having a supermodel like lover is nice, having someone who is less supermodel but still attractive is also nice... what's the big woof

There's a corollary thought, best said by Jeff Goldblum: "I've gotten to the point in life where simple competence is a turn-on."

I agree that it is much more realistic to be in a normal relationship then with people that are artificial.

Looks like I'm in like Flynn. I smell like garlic and pepperoni a few days a week.

Looking at normal people is one of the reasons I like watching foreign movies. Sick and tired of our fakes in all media.

Define "normal". It's relative to perception.

Definitely. A friend and I were just discussing how in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movies (the original Swedish ones,) all the actors looked like normal people, not botoxed fitness models.

Sure, I mean down-to-earth women, working women, not seldom mothers. Many of them don't wear a lot of make-up if any, they don't wear expensive clothes or perfume. They don't try to hide or change what other people might perceive as imperfections.

I have never been to Kansas, but I assume women in Kansas (outside the few cities) are also quite different from those in, say, New York City

In my single days my buddies and I were most impressed with women who looked good in sweats, a T-shirt, and no make up. And if she was warm and friendly on top of that, you knew you had a winner. Far too many people (male and female) are afraid of being "normal" or "regular". Over the years the most rewarding experiences I had with women were with the so-called "normal" ones.

I wished more women realized they don't need all those "extras" to be comfortable with themselves. There are plenty of men who can and will appreciate the simple things that make them who they are.
