If you have any experience at all with women, you already know the answer.

If you have not, GOOD LUCK in the future, for experience is the best teacher!

I dunno if women HATE beautiful women, but they'll definitely give dirty looks and make negative comments about them behind their back. It's all about competition.

Samantha Brick is not as good looking as she thinks, not at all. I mean, I wouldn't complain if I woke up next to her, but I wouldn't brag about it.

Cats don't care what other cats wear! Conversely, a woman will admire the style and grace of a beautiful woman, and proceed to attempt to duplicate her look. There ain't no shame in that.

Yes, they are. Do you (or anyone) think rightfully so, or is this a mostly false assumption or prejudice only?

Media representations of beautiful women certainly seem to imply they have a lesser degree of intellect, but it is my experience and that of many others I'm sure - there are plenty of beauties out there who are sharp and brainy as well. Not everyone of them has that sultry sexy appeal, like your friend Megan Fox, but they do have a lovely face or fine figure.

It's those Megan Fox types that seem to be lacking in the brains department. But, then again, that could just be jealousy on my part. Hisssss!

Another problem... my definition of "fine figure" is different than others- "full figure" is "fine figure" to me, but to the fashion industry and the magazine publishers, they are still trying to push off the same garbage as they have for decades, but the tide is turning, slowly!

Thanks. Absolutely, 'ideal' beauty is not definable for every member of society.

*Edit, I think you were agreeing with me, but now I'm not sure!

I have absolutely no idea why she thinks she's good looking. Perhaps she can't distinguish between that and the desperation of unattractive men.

Aesthetically the better ones face is symetrically the more attractive one is often considered, some one may havel left her face too close to the radiator.

Women love themselves irrespective of their looks... That's why they can be so annoying sometimes...

The mistake of the woman in this topic is breaking that narcissistic rule and openly admiring herself.
