Yeah. It’s a confession.
(Malodorous, shaggy guy, half-drooling after seeing a pretty girl)
Smelly guy: You look beautiful.
Irked out girl: Get lost! you moron!
(Cute/hot guy. Hot clothes on hot bod ooo la la)
Hot guy: You look pretty in that dress.
Bewitched girl(OMG!): less talk more kiss!
Now, before you get all finger-pointy-ha ha on me, give it a thought. Would you be welcoming or willing to be cordial with someone who is in a shape worse than a chicken-pox ridden or a jaundice ridden patient?
Of course, I never mentioned that the ‘straight-out-of-ed,edd and eddy neighborhood’ guy looks less cute or more ugly, but it is difficult to look past a repulsive exterior.
Mind you, this whole situation applies to guys too. They wouldn’t want to approach a girl who isn’t well dressed or well groomed(Now boobs, is an altogether different situation/aspect).
But, that doesn’t mean that you get all groomed up and go Johnny Bravo on girls and expect them to be impressed. But a little bit of hair combing(ok, finger combing), a little bit of nail cutting really does go a long way.
A shabby guy in my college has a severe case of ill-maintained feet. Even worse than the bunion ridden ones of Posh! It’s not like there is any need for pedicure treatments but just cutting the nails would do the job too. It isn’t everything that is needed to pull off an impressive personality, but makes it somewhat easier.
After all what are the chances that you would get a job pulling off a sloppy look no matter how intelligent you are?
Although, it could work in our Mumbai trains where maybe people would give you a breathable space when you’re all smelly hair and yucky clothes. But then again, they might not and while you’re stuck in the worst possible travelling vehicle, you have to tolerate your own stink and of course of those around you.(Its like a thousand people in a room, even if you do open the windows, how the hell is air suppose to enter!)
So suit up ’cause don’t you still believe that beauty would fall for a smelly hairy beast!
