Him: I have put on weight.  I am fatter ady.
Me:  Don't let anyone put you down because you are fat.
        It does not matter what they say.
        If they are your friends, they shall have to accept you for what you are.

In this world of vanity, many of us judge a book by its cover.  We are so engrossed with the superficial.  We are so concerned with the micro and minute detail.  So much so that we miss the bigger picture.  We miss the forest for the woods.

It is important to be presentable.  Unkempt and sloppy appearance sure would not be a good first impression.  Judge if we must but not just by just looking at their physique.  The character, persona and demeanor is equally if not far more important.  

All that bloom shall wither.  All that are young shall age.  We all will one day grow old.  Our skin shall sag.  Our waist line may grow.  What we see happening in the other person, it shall form part of our aging process too.

Judge a book not just by its cover.  Judge it by its content.   Bother not what others think.  We deserve the best.  The best deserves us.

Unfortunately, vanity is probably worst within the gay community. That's why I wrote that post in my blog.

Physique / appearance are meant for the 1st impression. When the love is developed, it comes secondary. Totally agree w/ Lego that most people judge the book by its cover.

Let them go ahead and judge la :) Be confident in yourself.

If only the world is simpler, and people judge less. I agree with you, we deserve to be at our best, at all times.

Legolas...We shall just have to learn to be less judgmental.

Skyhawk...The male species by nature are attracted to the physical side of almost everything. That shall be another post.

savante...I am fine. Thanks for all your input thus far.

Little Dove...The world is simple. People complicate it.
