Movies are creating standards for what is accepted and what is not. For instance, very slim models—some of who are suffering from Anorexia Nervosa—are showcased as the most desired women. Obviously, this is very harmful for the rest of the women. Here is my personal story.
Once I came across this rather interesting, attractive, and smart Pakistani-Canadian guy. I was curious about him so I started talking to him. Later I found out that he was not my type. For example, once I was hanging out with him when he said that my hips are large just like any other Pakistani women. I felt surprised that he said this since I was not wearing revealing clothes. Furthermore, I knew he was mistaken because my hips are not too large and not too slim. Anyways, I realized that he wanted someone skinny. I left him soon after I heard him say a couple of more rude things—including asking for premarital sex—to me that did not make any sense to me.
Today, I was reading browsing the web when I found the article “The 11 Physical Features Men Can’t Resist, According to Science“. This article clearly stated that men find women with large hips (waist to hip ratio of 7:10) more attractive. I think my ratio is around there! According to the article,”Does Hip Size Affect Childbirth? An Expert Explains What “Childbearing Hips” Actually Mean” hip size does not influence childbirth. But, I am gathering that men still find big—appropriately sized—hips attractive.
So movies have done this to some men! Some of them are really looking for perfect women who are not that attractive but they mistakenly feel that they are. You know what I mean! Phew! I am so glad that I left him before developing a serious relationship. Apparently, he did notice my looks, hair, manner, and intellect; but then there were other things about him that made him undesirable to me. Of course! like men, I am selective too; but, I only require good manners and intellect as well as appropriate attraction. And, I know that I won’t get distracted by whatever I have seen in the movies because I always scan for brains first.
