Would you date an ugly man?

Women have you ever dated an ugly man?!?!? I hate the term UGLY it is so harsh! I would rather say unattractive, like that makes much difference. I just think it sounds a bit nicer than ugly- whoo! I used the picture of Shrek as an example as I didn’t want to offend anybody and he is cute in a troll like way? (side-eye).

I was watching GMTV this morning and one of the guests were saying that women do not go for ugly guys. He even went as far to wear a paper bag over his head to support his statement, for all we know he could have looked like Brad Pitt under there. Anywhoo it got me thinking about the kind of men we all go for. I know many of my girlfriends like the model, pretty boy looks type, but I tend to go for the average looking guy (whatever that is). Plus the fact that I’ve convinced myself that fine men only exist in the states (I really need to let this way of thinking go) but can you honestly say that if Craig Mack stepped to you in a club and offered to buy you a drink your heart would skip a beat, I think not!!!!!!!!!

I know we are not all that shallow that we only date model type men but you still want to be attracted too him right?!?!? Yes it’s all about the personality I get it, and more than likely the guy you spend the rest of your life with, will be some one you least expected. I’m sure we would all rather have a man that treats us like a queen and looks like your average Joe than a Tyson Beckford look alike who treats us like poo right? Or maybe we have succumbed to the fact that good looking men are non-existent, are too much hard work or that women are gonna be constantly trying to push up on him – BACK OFF!!!!!!!!!! I don’t know help a sister out here, what is deemed as ugly anyway?

Birmingham Representing

I am in total awe right now, like seriously!! I have come to my home town, Birmingham for the day to do some work. As BBC Midlands were a little short staffed and so I offered my services. I mean if they are gonna pay my expenses and a full days work, who am I to say no-right?!?!!?

I always get a slight distaste when I return home as it seems nothing has changed, the attitude is a little too laid back and everybody is doing the same thing they were doing when I left 8 years ago, hence the reason I left. However Brum has stepped up its game big time. Firstly there is the newly refurbished Bull Ring which sets the mark for the Midlands, but it’s the Mailbox that has got me. I have never set foot in the building until today despite it being here for at least ten years now???

So I get to work and already I’m like WOW this Mailbox looks kinda hot! I have already planned where I’m going to eat my dinner before I catch the train back down to south lol. However it’s the BBC Building that smashes it, it puts our dusty London building too shame. It’s an open spaced set up, very new and modern. I swear down the building comes like Minority Report/ Matrix/ Japan. There is an American themed diner for where people can sit and have their lunch, what the boom bah? The toilets are better than my bathroom at home. Even the water machine is hi-tech, poor old K-Hart had to ask “errrm excuse me where do I get a cup from please?” The kind old lady says “its okay dear, just press the button and the cup drops out automatically”. WHAT IS THIS?!?!

The studios here have their own automatic camera’s, it’s all manual in London (hang my head in shame). Even down to the computer I’m using is more modern, I’m surprised they don’t have Apple Macs on everybody’s desk. These past few days have reminded me that Birmingham is not all bad, people are friendlier and that my home town can represent. I’m proud to be a Brummie!!!!!!!!!!
