I've heard (okay, on some tv show) that people tend to judge girls by their looks and guys by the amount of money they have. The people who tend to have these things don't feel threatened at all and tend to lap up all the social attention like one of those smart shop mops. Those who don't however, tend to be more cautious and insecure.
Even though it's pretty shallow, there is some truth to that statement, though I personally think that girls are judged by how 'cun' they are and guys on how much 'success' have they obtained.
I say 'cun' because you don't really need to be drop dead gorgeous(tho it helps-a lot) to be cun. It's more of how you carry yourself, your general appearance and how well you get on with other people. You can look like Cleopatra or have a body that can launch a thousand submarines but if you hide that under tasteless clothes and a huge frown in between being a bitch to your classmates and sulking in a corner, you will never be cun. However, if you were plain looking but you take care of you skin, make-up and meals, you can always make people laugh and you can charm the cookies from even the crankiest granma, then hey you're definately cun material.
Now, success measured by guys can come in an array of packages. You don't get much respect if you have the dough but you don't put it to good use or if you boast about your financial spendings. Success would mean you have the loyal band of brothers, the *ahem* cun and loving girlfriend, the clothes, the car, the gadgets and a really cool hobby you're good at. If you've got all this, it doesn't matter how much you've earned. I know, most of these things can't be obtained without money but I don't think you need vast amounts of it. Just keep it simple and start your way up. Now, that;s what people respect.
Okay. So these are just my views and interpretation of the subject. I don't expect anyone to agree with me but that's how i happen to see things. Oh well. Till then.
ps: The tv show happened to be Gol n Gincu. Nice. ;P
