Scripted Lives; 5 Acts, not a play…

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players…

Act 1…
The man sees an attractive, young woman sitting alone at the bar. He moves to a better vantage point where he can see her face clearly and throws her a sneak look accompanied by a soft smile. The woman smiles back without breaking eye contact (If she doesn’t, the man starts from square one with a different actor). It’s the cue for the man to make a move. He does.

Act 2…
The man engages in small talk about the weather in the last few days. The woman agrees with a few comments of her own. They seem to have an excellent time although neither is into meteorology. The man offers to buy her a drink… one more of whatever she’s having. They start laughing at everything. Being funny ceases to be a requirement after this point.

Act 3…
They leave the bar together and go to whoever’s house is closer. They have sex. The man whispers how beautiful the woman is into the nearest ear. The woman instructs the man to go faster… or harder… or however she wants it.

Act 4…
They discover common hobbies, feel safe and loved in each other’s arms, and decide to go for a romantic relationship. The man buys her presents, the woman makes frequent surprises to him. The love between them is so profound that jealousy starts ruling the relationship!!! (Really ironic this one… As when couples love each other, they should develop trust not jealousy). They decide to get married though. After all, marriage is a sort of guarantee that they won’t cheat on one another, right?

Act 5…
As they can’t stand each other after countless fits; the man and the woman go for a divorce. After the mourning phase (or the relief), each return to Act 1 separately and play the same game expecting different results.

Just like theatrical plays, the illusion called life relies heavily on inter-human relationships…

Now, stop here for a moment and think about how you interact with other people…

Is every decision you make, truly yours? Does every word you say, belong to you?

or

Do we make choices in our relationships with others and carry on upon pre-taught thinking?

Acting out scenes with pre-written scripts like some untalented actors?

There are various books on pick up lines out in the market for the socially-challenged… Pieces of script, just in need of personal fillers.

Imagine reading a book or watching a film for the thousandth time… knowing the ending, but still trying to enjoy it, hoping the outcome would be different. It’s sheer disappointment as it’s the same title with a different set of characters after all.

Why do we do this?

Why do we keep on living li(v)es of who we are not?

Types of Men: A basic guide for women

Types of Men: A basic guide for women

Contrary to popular belief, men aren’t easy to comprehend (yet, predictable) as there are different types of them which you can find reflections of, in the animal kingdom. 

Each type has its own characteristic traits and have different expectations from women.

Let’s have a quick look:

The ox: About 35% of the male population consists of them. They are easily identifiable in society with their bulky and muscular bodies with grim expressions all over their faces. They tend to think all women are attracted to the looks of their muscles. They are the least intellectual type of all and it’s nearly impossible to strike a rational conversation with them. They are highly overprotective and tend to see women as personal properties. They want their women to be loyal and physically attractive all the time while they regard themselves not bound by the loyalty rule. Though quite primitive, the oxen are amongst the most desired by women for reasons unknown. 

Favorite hobby: Watching football with their mates in a cheap bar.

The peacock: About 15% of all men fall under this category. They are stinking rich and try to impress women by using pure wealth. The rich peacock values physical beauty and often spoils their women with costly presents. For them, women are ornaments of beauty that they wear around. They are joyous as long as the beauty lasts, so it’s easy to make a rich peacock happy: stay pretty. They are also never upset about losing their partner as they think someone will eventually replace her. 

Favorite hobby: Attending antiquity auctions overseas.

The raccoon: 14% of the males fit into this category. They are highly intellectual men and target women using their brains. They might seem bossy around women but in reality they want to be led by them. They are super talkative and can often turn into a talking Wikipedia if not resisted. As they are extremely self-confident, a woman must follow his advice on any subject, acknowledge how right he had been and show gratitude by thanking. That is rhe only thing that appeals to them. Otherwise, the raccoon would keep on nagging his partner until she does follow as he sees fit. 

Favorite hobby: Bragging continuously about how he solved a difficult crisis using his intellect in the corporate world.

The Sloth: The laziest type of all men make about 11% of the male population. They are almost always shaggy looking without a decent, paying job. Interested and skilled in art or music, they tend to live off of their women financially. They can make their women happy as long as they are taken care of and not talked about job opportunities.

Favorite hobby: Being left alone in a basement armed with crayons or a dusty old piano.

The monkey: The playful monkey can be seen in about 8% of males. They are not that attractive physically, so they try to compensate the physical flaw by playing the clown. Their sole aim is to make their partners laugh and have the greatest times of their lives. A woman can blindly trust the monkeys and can be easily entertained by doing all the crazy stuff that they have never thought of, with them. They are the perfect partner and play mate for women.

Favorite hobby: Making women happy. 

The dinosaur: Another 8% of men are dinosaurs. They are traditional and old-fashioned in every way. They are also closely bound to the unspoken rules of society 300 years ago and try to maintain such a society in an ever changing, current world. The dinosaur wants his woman to be just like him; having high values for obsolete traditions.

Favorite hobby: Telling stories about their great grandparents over and over again.

The dragon: 0% of men…They are what every woman wants as partners but sadly they don’t exist. Never have.

Favorite hobby: Existing in the dreams of women up to a certain age until they realize they don’t exist.

The remaining 9% is a cross breed between the types above. 

So, what do you think? Am I right? Please comment…

Of Women and the Perception of Beauty

beautyblog

* This article is dedicated to all women who find themselves flawed in terms of physical beauty. 
Imagine Marilyn Monroe without the mole on her cheek…Picture Tina Fey missing her trademark of the blade mark on her face…Think of a much taller Shakira overlooking everyone bird’s view… or Keira Knightley with Dolly Parton boobs…
No men can ever say that they find the names above as not attractive as they are now…
What some people call physical flaws are actually modifications in bodies or faces that make them unique and give them character. So, true beauty lies in imperfection or perfection via flaws.
The most beautiful women in the world are all around me! They are not celebrities hidden under makeups; they are beautiful souls with a smile and possess what they believe as flaws:
beauty2
Crow’s feet
Misshapen toes
Assymetric facial features
Lump in the belly
Funny colored birthmarks or moles
Height closer to the ground
Bushy eyebrows
Stubby fingers
Scars here and there
And many more…. are what make women so beautiful and most importantly; unique! Beauty lies in the rarity..
All women are beautiful if they believe in themselves and accept all the things that make them unique.
And men?
We are all ugly. Period.
