Are There Any Real Women Left?
“All I want is a man that’s real.” As the words left her mouth, it was almost as if I could hear a chorus of women standing behind her, ready to take up her cause. This stance is nothing new though. Ask any woman to describe what she desires in a man, and more often than not, adjectives like real and honest will somehow make their way into the conversation.

As the words left her mouth, it was almost as if I could hear a chorus of women standing behind her, ready to take up her cause. This stance is nothing new though. Ask any woman to describe what she desires in a man, and more often than not, adjectives like real and honest will somehow make their way into the conversation. And it’s not like I can even blame women for having that desire. After all, those are qualities that we should all strive to possess.
The irony of it all is that while women expect men to engage in complete honesty, the same can’t be said for how some women present themselves to men. While their words may be truthful, nothing else about them appears to be authentic in any way. From their eyes, to their hair, body and other physical attributes, some women go to great lengths to create an alternate version of themselves. It’s gotten to the point where men have to openly question if a woman is “real or not.”
But why are women doing this? Is there a belief that this is what a man wants? Or are they simply attempting to mask their own insecurities? One thing’s for certain; the more I talk to other men, the more I realize that I’m not alone in my displeasure with this alarming upward trend of “fake” women. In today’s piece, I’ve decided to analyze some of the many ways that women make themselves up, and share what men from around the country have to say about it.
“I’ll never forget the time when this girl that I was dating spent the night. Things were going well, until I woke up the next morning. I looked over and saw that her fake eyelashes had come off and were lying on her cheek. It looked like she had little creatures on her face. That was the first time that I wasn’t attracted to her. I want to wake up to the same person that I fall asleep to. She just seemed fake to me.” –Adrian, Chicago
“Why are women getting butt injections? I don’t understand it. Do they think that’s what we want? Maybe if she was a stripper it would be cool, but I don’t want to be sleeping next to a woman with a fake booty. Aren’t those things flammable?” –Jared, Houston
“Women want a man that is physically fit, when it looks like she robbed an ice cream truck and broke into the Twinkie factory.” –Erik, Atlanta
“I remember dating this girl and thinking that she had a nice shape. It wasn’t until we decided to get physical that I learned the truth. As we undressed, she had something underneath … I think it was one of those Body Magic things. Once she took it off, I was speechless. It looked like she had been hiding a small child under there.” –Anton, Philly
“A woman shouldn’t wear a butt pad unless she is a professional figure skater, and doesn’t want to hurt herself if she falls.” –Marlon, Los Angeles
“When I see those things, I always wonder what else isn’t real about the girl. It’s gotten so bad, that I’m almost expecting a woman to put her teeth in a cup by the bed, and unscrew her leg like on I’m Gonna Git You Sucka.” –Ty, Chicago
Technically speaking, a man could blatantly lie to a woman, and she wouldn’t have the grounds to be upset … well not if she was misrepresenting herself in any of the aforementioned ways above. I mean, be honest; is either type of lie really ok? I contend no. At the end of the day, there needs to be more honesty across the board—from both men and women. If a woman wants to know the truth when she asks a guy if he’s seeing anyone else, then he should also get the truth about the color of her eyes or the size of her waste.
Simply put, if both sides began coming to the table with a more honest representation of themselves, then things might work out better for all parties involved. At least, that’s what I believe.
