The "10" Gets it All, the "5" Gets Nothing! Is this Fair?

Men often will go to the ends of the earth for a pretty young thing-meet her mom, buy her a big diamond or whatever. But oh, ha the average woman, you can forget it. He is also the one he has that fantasy crush on that you wish he had on you.

However, he don't want you, and here's some reasons why: For one, if you are not a "10" forget it. That's the mentality of some men, even if they are only a "5." This selfish hypocrite expects you to always be at your best and yet he can just be who he wants to be. I feel it is entirely hypocritical, how some men can be.

Now, I am not expecting a big, thick diamond. I was just trying to make a point that there is a huge difference between the selfish man and the loving man. I want someone who will accept me for who I am-at my best and my worst.

I also want someone to see the real me and not the Saturday night made-up version of me. Is that too much to ask?

Update to this Post (Three Years Later)

I left that guy who seemed to think he was so much better than me. Since then I have found someone who treats me like I matter. I like the idea of having someone around who really does want me.

The best part of what I have now versus what I did have:

I like the fact that my boyfriend treats me like the most beautiful woman in the world. That is not something I always had. I never before had someone who felt such an extreme need to have someone better or different. It is a huge relief.

I'm not saying we will stay forever together. However, he pays attention to me and puts up with me even at my worst. Therefore, I am going to milk this for as long as I can!
