If you haven’t already noticed, Abi and I have a lot of stupid conversation. We laugh and talk shit and plan parties and trips. One of the reasons we get along so well is because we agree on a lot of things: food should taste good, men are stupid, the gay is great, and girls-only vacations are mandatory. The one thing that we don’t always agree on? How pretty girls are.
She thinks almost every girl is pretty. And almost every single time, I disagree.
Ok, before you hang me by my fingernails, let me first be more specific. It’s not that I think every girl is UGLY. It’s just that I don’t think they’re as pretty as u may think they are. As a woman, I reserve using the word “pretty” for those who are actually deserving of it — supermodels and supermoms alike. Most girls fall within the “alright” or “cute” category with me, and I have no problem calling an ugly girl ugly. Especially if she thinks she’s pretty prettier than me most. But hey, ugly girls need self-love too.
Do I sound conceited yet? I’m not trying to be. I’m just trying to keep it real.
Don’t get it twisted. I do think that every woman is beautiful in her own right. I think that beauty starts from within and that the prettiest girls are the happy ones. On days that end in “y,” I hate the way I look and would kill for her skin, her stomach and your face. But on the days when I’m feelin’ a lil too pretty and petty? I might as well have reverse beer-goggles on cuz no one is safe from the truth as I see it.
So if I say you’re pretty, don’t take it lightly. It’s the highest compliment I can give a woman, especially if I don’t know her from a stranger on the street. Women are quick to call their girlfriends “pretty” and “gorgeous” when most of the time they’re…not so much. Thats fine, I do it, you do it, we all do it… personality, humor, and wit go a long way when judging the entire package. But Lesbi-honest here. There are a lot of beautiful women out there, I’m just not the one to lie about who they are.
