Sitting at the house playing dominoes with the fellaz and suddenly this chick stopped by to see one of our dudes and to be honest with you there was nothing special about this woman, just an average looking chick in a blue dress. Medium height, shoulder length hair, beautiful brown eyes and a round booty…all of that with no makeup. So all of a sudden my dudes and I went on this long discussion about plain Janes. Could you picture yourself getting involved with a woman who didn’t use make-up…..Doesn’t wear jewelry…..Does not doll herself up in any way shape or form? Nice person….But very plain.
My boy X states that he would be with one only if she had a nice personality and keep up in the bedroom; my boy Zoe thinks that too simple for him but he would have her as a side chick. My argument is that seriously, if she has a sweet, warm, and funny personality, her ‘plainness’ would not matter. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Beauty is only skin deep, if her mind is right on top of her shoulders I don’t see why I wouldn’t date her.
The ones I stay away from usually wear heavy make-up on the face, extra jewelry, nails are overly decorative, heavy on the perfume, a size 16 body in a size 8 outfit and think they’re looking good!
I once dated this person; actually it was deeper than that; we were engaged. She grew to be very special to me but I remember that I couldn’t figure out for at least the first 12 months or so, why for the life of me…. I was so helplessly attracted to my future wife (Before we parted ways) and no matter what I tried; I didn’t have the strength to even resist resisting her with resistance. And mind you, at this point she hadn’t done a single thing but maybe smile at me once in awhile.
Then I realized that she didn’t wear make-up! And that was it. I was officially a mass of incoherent goop worth absolutely nothing anywhere in life. Thing is, it took her to tell me, that she didn’t wear make-up—and then it finally ‘dawned’ on me (in my stupor….) that that’s what got my attention!!
There is no more beautiful woman in existence than a black woman but one whom is proud and aware of her blackness in this way… will always shut the roaring one up.
As one my dudes stated at the domino table on “If I can’t talk with her, then I can’t walk with her.” Nothing more unattractive than a woman wearing so much make-up she looks like a corpse waiting to be buried.
Like I alluded to earlier, beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. Exterior beauty only captures ones attention, inner beauty is what holds it. It’s the “Sleeper” that awakens the man within. It would be a shame to have her start “unmasking” and you find out you’ve gotten more than you bargained for. Plain Janes are definitely more appealing to me.
