While its good to look clean and groomed I often wonder how much of our lives we spend thinking about our vanity.
Imagine how much time some people spend throughout their lifetimes thinking about the outside of themselves and not the inside of themselves.
I personally NEVER date women who want to emulate Hollywood or girls who keep up with the latest fashions.
I love a girl in jeans,running shoes and a t-shirt.

Does that make us vain one step removed ?
Beauty is everywhere and in all people.
The happiest people I know can find the beauty in everyone.
I think that's a good goal for all of us.
What I don't see is how this is a conspiracy in any way

They can run it the way they want to.
I really don't see a problem w/ beautiful people wanting to date beautiful people, because that's what that website is all about. In order to make money and keep its customers happy the people who don't meet their criteria must be cut.
