Wanted....tall, slim, fair...?

so everyone reads matrimonial ads... and enjoys them! Pretty amazing pieces of fiction aren't they? Amusing, to say the least. Going by them, I'd be forced to think the only people who DO get married and live happily ever after are as follows :
1.] Tall
2.] Fair
3.] Slim
4.] Smart
5.] 5' 6"
6.] professionally qualified
7.] Tall
8.] Fair
9.] slim
10.] beautiful
11.] handsome

oh,oh am I repeating myself? well, that's exactly what happens in the papers... after awhile you know nearly exactly what the next ad is going to say... they all sound the same...!

For once I'd like to see an ad that reads such "wanted, normal height, average looking, presentable bride/groom for equally normal, average looking, man/woman.

or better if it was allowed, I'd send this in as a joke... " wanted midget, loon, with excess body hair and no desire for removal of the same, face like a frog, waist like a balloon, teeth like apples with worms a-peeking from the holes, lazy ass bitch for wedding!!! "

yeah... that would be fun...
what about all the others? The not so tall, regular people with flaws... imperfections... not that different from the ones placing the adverts... they get married too don't they... eventually... and probably happily too.

when the family is aware of the prospective bride/groom's flaws, its probably easier for everyone involved... that way, no surprises are involved and the family can adjust well to the new member, making it easier for the new person to adjust in turn!
how much of that made sense?

See, its better not to hide whats wrong with you, as its not something one can do in the long run... its better to be yourself, right from the start... be proud of your 'baddies' as much as you maybe of your good points, cos its the wrongs that make one human...
