I wonder when they will get around to doing a study of where the world's dullest women come from .....

I feel the orders may get reversed ....

I think that too is a matter of culture, perception and cultural perception.

Some cultures may find highly intelligent women who focus on things which require focused study (higher maths and sciences) to be dull, others may find them exciting in the extreme - just look how acceptable it is for people in general to be intellectual in predominantly Asian areas of the world.

Other cultures may find women who enjoy going out drinking, dancing, staying out till all hours, can "kick it with the boys" to be the ultimate interest and elsewhere may find such behavior boorish.


Personally, I find that having a mixture of friends, some who are intellectual super stars, some who party, some who are thin, fat and some who are somewhere in between all of that to be what makes up an "interesting life"... but then again, I think I'm a bit of a "cultural misfit" in many ways.


Speaking of boorish, I just noticed this lovely bit:

This user groans at Peg A for this post: ProsperityJoy
The post in question of course being the one where I complained about the picture.

You see my dear, dear Prosperity"Joy" (joyless if ever there was... but I digress), that picture was most likely taken at a "BBW / BHM Event" in which the ladies and gentlemen "of size" are meant to be able to feel comfortable in their surroundings. Sometimes they rent out an entire hotel, sometimes they rent a cruise ship or whatever, in order to ensure that they can actually enjoy themselves the same exact way anyone else would. Go to the beach or the pool wearing what they like (perhaps nothing), eat, drink, dance, socialize, perhaps meet Mr. or Ms. Right - or perhaps Mr. or Ms. "right now" - just like anyone else is able to do when they go out or go on vacation.

BECAUSE of "people like you" they feel that is the only way they can truly enjoy themselves. Would you want to go to the beach, having people staring at you, being able to hear jokes about "get the harpooooon!" - usually made in a voice guaranteed to be heard and understood. I'm sure you wouldn't.

So, the ladies in the picture were at just such an event, with people who showed up either claiming to be an admirer (potential suitor) or a friend. They were in an environment which should have been "safe" for them to behave as they wished. To dress as they wished. To enjoy themselves.

Attitudes like yours, and what you have proven by groaning at me, only reinforces to anyone who isn't "perfectly slim" that such events ARE necessary.


Hopefully you never feel the need to attend (what was supposed to be) a relatively "exclusive event" just so you can feel comfortable enjoying your own vacation.

There’s a difference between beauty and charm. A beautiful woman is one I notice. A charming woman is one who notices me.

I don't think you are at all, actually, that posts proves the opposite. Diversity is the best.

You have made my day. There is hope for the future if these things can happen. Grew up in the USA and McD's hasn't been worth eating for more than two decades.
But, what is wrong with the story ? Simple, any good McDonald's manager KNOWS that his place is inferior to the competion in regard to the quality of the food. But capable MD managers play their card wisely, introduce salads to counter opposition about the calories in the MD food, emphasize how swift the service in his/her place is, arrange seatings outside in reality also for passers-by in the justified hope that some of them may in the end purchase something, jump onto waves of fashion by having some items on the menu with things like Curry, Paprika, etc. And other tricks in regard to marketing. With a McDonald's operating in the way of a MD in Britain you will collapse in Italy.

Welcome to the forum, Varg. And I concur with your observation, a teen dating resto that is.
