If it’s the same mirror, why do we look at ourselves differently?

Self-esteem is a personal validation of oneself and your value as a person; body image is how someone feels about his or her own physical appearance which is I belief has a correlation.

Women are on a constant weight loss battle to look good for their fat, bald ugly men. Have you seen a guy shed 5 kilos or get on a treadmill so that he doesn’t lose his girlfriend? Ok so maybe there are some but I’m pretty sure very remote.

I dated a guy who did not have a great complexion, who lost all his hair and would look at himself in the mirror and tell me he’s so good looking. I too saw myself in that same mirror but all I saw was a bulging tummy, dark circles under my eyes and to my horror spotted some white hair.

So why is it that we can never see ourselves looking and feeling great? Apparently up to 8 out of 10 women will be dissatisfied with their reflection, and more than half may see a distorted image.

Men on the other hand look into the mirror and are more likely to be either pleased with what they see or indifferent. Research shows that men generally have a much more positive body-image than women – if anything, they may tend to over-estimate their attractiveness. Some men looking in the mirror may literally not see the flaws in their appearance – Yes, I’m sure we didn’t need a research to point that out, do we?

What happens when a woman or a man gains weight? The first person to notice that would be our moms – Judge Dredd. Worse if you are single, she will tell you lose weight or stay single for the rest of your life…ok that’s not such a horrible thought after all

What happens when a man gains weight? Nothing, no one even notices or if they do, they crack bad jokes like dude, you still seeing your balls down there?

Tabloid magazines would feature a picture of Victoria Beckham and zero in on her skinny thighs and magnify it to show an insignificant sight of her cellulite. Do you see them doing the same to Russell Crow or Val Kilmer? No these fat asses get away with once again some bad jokes.

Its women who gets hit the most and it has been estimated that young women now see more images of outstandingly beautiful women in one day than our mothers saw throughout their entire adolescence.

I want to have a normal name

Hollywood celebrities are on a race to compete for the weirdest names for their babies. My heart goes out for these kids whom I reckon will be hounded for the rest of their lives thanks to their brainless parents. Let’s take a look at the tragic names these parents thought off while downing whiskey

Bronx Mowgli is the son of Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz. Rob Morrow decided to name his child Tu Morrow. Wouldn’t it be easier if it was just To Morrow? At least we wouldn’t have to worry about getting the spelling right.

Jason Lee the weirdo from My Name is Earl, named his kid Pilot Inspektor, its no wonder Season 4 got cancelled. Must be due to creative differences.

Spice Girl, Geri Halliwell pushed it a notch by naming her daughter Bluebell Madonna. Well at least, Bluebell will never have to worry about having a stage name should she become an artist.

Actor Dan Cortese jumped into the bandwagon of hollyweirdo by naming his kid Tabooger, which sounds like something Boeing would name their airplanes.

If the name 50 cent isn’t bad enough, he named his son Bow-Ty, I was surprised, didn’t the son at least deserve ‘A Dollar’?

Given the good movies both Demi Moore and Bruce Willis have done, I must say I’m sorely disappointed to the names they gave their kids - Rumer, Scout and Tallulah. Really! What were they thinking?

Vanilla Ice named his daughter Dusti Rain, which I think was named after a stripper in some sleazy joint called Tities for Dummies. KeeLee Breeze has named her son, Audio Science Clayton, I’m guessing her following children would be Sight History Clayton and Smell Geography Clayton

Is it too much to name your kid Amy, John or Rebecca? I foresee the gloomy future these kids would have being taunted in school and at work. I mean would you hire a lawyer named Pilot Inspektor? Its not cool ladies and gentleman.

If your kids ever starts popping pills at the age of 6 its all your fault!!

What do we want?

What matters most to men? Ambition, money and career. What matters most to women, love men and relationships. I’m not saying that it’s the only things that matter but I’m saying men and women give more importance to different aspects of their lives.

Women will ruminate over their knight in shining armor. Will he arrive in a carriage or a Mercedes, when does he make his presence known, how many lovely kids they would have, would they have undying love to each other towards the very end, does she get to wear a Vera Wang to the wedding….how whimsical.

Now, let’s take a look at the other species, men are structured and well planned animals. They know where they want to be in the next 5 years, a CEO to a multinational company by sleeping with the boss’s daughter, embezzling enough money to start a side business. Having stocks in multiple portfolios and facing fraud charges from various business partners.

Men deal with stress by calling up their buddies, downing loads of alcohol and having a one night stand to boost his ego. Women deal with stress by also getting drunk, having meaningless sex with a guy but regretting it later and calling all her girlfriends for a support group.

Women think with their hearts and logic is sometimes overcome with their emotions, maybe that’s why they can’t seem to know a loser when they are dating one. Men think mainly with their minds, everything has to be concise and precise and all facts laid out before they make their decision.

And perhaps that balances it in a relationship. While men crave for success in fame and money and women seek success in their family life, each of them equalize their need for a perfect home with each bringing something to the table.

Once again, the author wishes to express that it does not mean each sex has only one thing in mind but it is relatively dependant on priority
