This one time I had a friend who was venting his problems about girls. We were very good friends and I usually tried to provide him with wise counsel. This time I decided to dig deeper, “Friend, if you had to create the ideal girl by combining personality traits and physical features of ANY girls in the school…what would that girl be like?”
And because we were close friends he gave me his honest un-filtered answer…”Wow! Any girl in the whole school?” He was thrilled.
“Yes friend, create your ideal perfect girlfriend…”
“Mmmm…okay well she would have Julie’s smile, Emily’s eyes, Charissa’s legs, Teresa’s height, and Jill’s body”
“Wow” I said, “That’s an impressive girl you just created out of all the prettiest girls in our class. Way to go!”
“And as far as personality….” he said thoughtfully, “I think just…your personality Kat. That would be the total package”.
Initially I was flattered beyond belief! Here he had to combine a handful of different girls to get just the right look for him, but he only needed one girl to complete the IDEAL personality for him.
I had an IDEAL personality!!! Flawless. Perfect. His DREAM girl personality.
And then I was alllllll wait a second! If my personality was IDEAL…then the only thing keeping my friend from wanting to DATE me and make me his WIFE for all eternity was…my….looks?
diluted the moment for me.
