I'm Sooo Vain...

I probably think this song is about me...

Carly Simon's been going through my head all morning long, probably because of a conversation my sister and I had last night. But, nonetheless, if makes me think of the things that I've done in my life for the name of vanity.

For example, the countless diets I've tried in my life. I know that I've never been to the point of really needing to lose weight, but I really am vain enough to subscribe to the whole "Hot Or Not" mentality.

Also, I always feel guilty about some of the reasons that I've decided to break up or not date certain people. For example, there was a certain guy that I went on a date or two with... I had to quit calling him because his teeth were way too much for me to handle. It wasn't that they were crooked or mangled... It was that they were the color of butter. I couldn't imagine the idea of having those teeth so close to my mouth. Or the thought of other people thinking that I would be willing to have those teeth close to my mouth. Bleck...

I guess the only way I really can rationalize this is by thinking that everybody has some similar type of vanity hang up... Right?

By the way, you have a great reason to be vain, you're gorgeous!
WAY TOO good to have such "hot or not" insecurities...

I don't think refusing to date a guy with bad teeth is a shallow or vain thing, either. We all have our limitations. I'm weird about amputees...

You shouldn't worry....your star shape is lovely and you are well toned. You could maybe us a little exfoliation. I have wasted enough money for 7 face lifts....enough to have a mustache...on damn face creams. Weight....if I am a bit heavier my wrinkles show less.

I like to taunt people by saying, "Damn, you probly think this SONG is about you..." :)

Don't feel bad about I Can't Believe It's Not Butter teeth guy... if we find that those small details are magnified to the point of not dating someone, chances are, it wasn't meant to be. With people we click with, we make excuses for faults or find them cute.

I have to admit though that other people's perception of who I date factors in.
