More On The Ideal Woman
Let's discuss that info-graphic a bit.
So women think they need to, ideally, be size 8s.
But men think they only need to be svelte size 12s.
How to interpret this???
The girls believe they have to lose soooo much weight to be ideal that....that they don't even bother to try?
And men, those infinitely shallow neanderthals....all they're begging for is a tiny, Marginal cellulite reduction! (Sorry ladies, taking the stairs instead of the elevator after lunch, once in a while, doesn't actually do anything. NOR does frozen yogurt!)
This all reminds me a bit of my perma-bachelor cousin.
He once told me that he requires no more than a *size 4*. How's that for being picky?!
Meanwhile, over the course of his multi-decade search for a suitable life partner....he's morphed into a bit of a pear-shaped chunk-a-do himself, most ironically. (His weakness is one of *portion control*.)
But getting back to the female form...
Of course, it's very possible that men and women are answering two different questions.
Perhaps, the elusive size 8 that they idealize to has nothing at all to do with satisfying dudes. Perhaps that's just the weight they would prefer to be for their own self-esteem? So they can more easily shop for clothes?
While I probably couldn't articulate it, there's certainly a corollary discussion on the *ideal man* (a guy who'll love them no matter what they look like?).
That image above hints at it; so does this song.
