I was flipping through Glamour last week (a women’s magazine, for people living under a rock), and amidst all of the do’s (trendy haircuts on guys? Really?) and don’ts (apparently, over-the-knee boots are so last season), the spring style countdown (khakis, bangles, blah, blah, blah), a feature on how to get a brand new butt (I’m sorry Leandro Carvalho, but I really doubt you’re the ultimate ‘Butt Master’) and what guys find the most frustrating about women (‘When she doesn’t orgasm’ and ‘When she says, ‘Everything is fine!’), I came across only one page that I felt was truly worth reading and sharing.

Yes, she’s pretty with a rockin’ body to boot. However, there are more beautiful women
