What's With the Pout?

I overheard a conversation between two guys who watched a lady take a pix,one was like"Gosh,why do they always push their lips forward when taking pics.If you ain't Angelina Jolie, you can never be Angelina Jolie".But some ladies have mastered the art of pouting so much that, their lips look like they just got stung by a bee(a very big bee)the downside is, pouting strains the face muscles.
Please ladies, next time you want to take that pic, just brighten up the world and smileee.
I pout too..(even without make up)lol...

The Art of Sexiness

Last month, a couple of friends and I were debating on how to best describe our individual outlooks.When it came to who could be considered sexy, I wasn’t picked. Why? According to them, I was pretty and homely. The girl a man see’s and thinks of a house and kids not a “bed”. As much as that was a compliment, I thought to myself” I want to be sexy” not just pretty. Men are attracted to sexy. They said” Emeh, you can never be sexy. You smile a lot; you have that shy appearance, look like a daddy’s girl and you don’t have that attitude.

That lead me on my quest to understand the rationale behind the word” sexy.
I’ve tried to get a single definition of a sexy woman but it hasn’t been possible. I went to the extent of carrying out a survey” Rihanna or Beyonce who’s sexier? Shockingly, 98% of men said Rihanna is sexier than Beyonce. According to them, Beyonce tries too hard to prove herself. She is everywhere, all up in your face....
 Initially, I was shocked, Beyonce’s bum could cause a minor earthquake, she dances like a robot, she whines her body like a snake...I kept giving reasons why Beyonce is sexier, but the general reason was, Rihanna has found a comfortable zone. She’s dark, intense and crazy. She doesn’t try to prove that she’s the sexiest woman in the world.

Unlike a woman who is generally considered beautiful, pretty or gorgeous, a sexy woman more often than not isn’t even beautiful. She isn’t out there in your face. She could be sexy because of the way she giggles or how intense her eyes are, or because she’s confident in her skin. It can’t not be fined tuned to a particular attitude or behavior. Some women think sexiness is all about pouting the lips, wearing skimpy outfits, splashing on layers or makeup, or worse still openly flirting with men. Sexiness is skin deep.

I was with this very intelligent man (lol)) when the issue cropped up. He made a very important point” Being sexy is not about being beautiful or an attitude or makeup. As a matter of fact, most men would consider a natural lady as sexy. To him, you don’t have to try too hard; it’s either there or not”. Well, he ended the conversation with” But, I think you’re very sexy” (don’t hate) and he meant it!

A dangerous illussion

Remember the song"Mrs Jones" by the Dramatics,"Me and Mrs Jones, we gat a thing, going on". I can’t get that song out of my head. Not only does it push across the allure of forbidden love and affairs, it reminds me of the sad reality that faithful and commited relationships are on  the verge of extinction.

I seriously doubt if there's someone here who hasn't fallen for someone who belongs to  another. I recall some months ago, there was this young man living opposite my office. He had a fiancée whom had been with him through it all. Well, suddenly, he fell for a friend of mine who paid me a visit once. I tried all I could to make them see why they were infatuated with each other, but I must confess their chemistry was out of this world. He would pick her up, take her places, they would walk hand in hand, talk for hours, and do things which he hadn't done with his fiancée in a long time.

He promised to breakup with his fiancée and marry her. I laughed at her gullibility. I knew, there was a 1 in 100 chance, he would do that. Then two months later, His fiancée found out about the affair, she was heartbroken and if there was anyone he had to let go off, it was my friend."He couldn't bring himself to hurt his fiancée" she had been with him, through it all. But he could hurt my friend; she was just a temporary diversion.
    The thing about forbidden love is the thrill of it. It’s so exciting and gets your adrenaline pumping. This makes you believe you’re in love. You live in a fantasy whereby you can’t wait to see each other. You spend time talking about fantasies and lose touch with the reality.

 There’s nothing more exciting than doing something in the dark and hoping you never get caught. I've had my fair share of forbidden love situations, but thankfully, I was able to walk away unscathed because I never gave in to that temptation. 1walked away,so should you.
