Dear Readers, we live in a society where being in a relationship means to meet certain material requirements. People are compiling list based on their personal needs and if their future partner fail to meet their demands there is n o need to engage in a relationship. I support setting standards, but what I have observe with this generation is that how much you have is how much people will love you.
” Body shaming is a negative statement and attitude towards another persons weight or size.”
I am told that setting standards when seeking a life partner is important. In a prospective partner we look for compatibility and good characteristics like: someone who is caring, humble, generous, and self assured. Some people rely on chemistry, “a connection of a bond or common feeling between two people.” For others, physical attraction is important, meaning features that are considered aesthetically pleasing or beautiful.
Question, have you found yourself staring at a couple who is noticeably gorgeous from head to toe; or the opposite, the women is more physically fit than her male companion, and vice a versa? The general consensus is that aesthetics should not be a deal breaker when choosing a partner.
We all know the saying” beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.” Haven’t you noticed the world is leaning towards outer beauty? A well toned body is a mandatory requirement regardless of the person’s personality, standards or morals. There are ads that are dedicated to Body Shaming most are directed towards women. What is most shameful is people are using body shaming as a form of discrimination when selecting a partner. These people are sending a clear message that based on an individuals physically appearance that they are good enough.
