All this proves is that -

1) White women age quickly

2) Air Brush is used liberally

I am not shocked how some of these women look when they don't have access to professional makeup artist, photoshop or airbrush and putting themselves on a starvation diet before a photo shoot.

If you only knew what goes on to get those pictures to look like that, there would be no reason to make such a post.

The "real life" photos have to be photoshopped. They look bad even by normal girl standards.

Well ... according to my lesbian former classmate pal (now playing my stunt GF in New England), the avg woman has no clue as to a real workout.

The program that I'm doing with my friend there, involving a mix of Qigong, Pilates, Medicine Ball, Weights, etc, blows away everything that most women do for their bodies.

In time, a true workout will make most of those women looks pretty descent, provided that they cut out the pastries, late at night.
16 years ago, the Best Picture of 1999, "American Beauty", telegraphed the message of Happier Abroad to the world.

Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.

BTW, despite settling down with an AW, myself, the warning is still in effect.

WHOA indeed!

Scarlett still f***ing fine without makeup and airbrush though. The rest of them look pretty bad though mostly on the thighs.

I wonder about the pictures of the Chinese women that Winston posted here and the pictures of same posted on HA's affiliate "A Foreign Affair". Those forty-something Chinese women's either have lots of makeup, or their pictures have been airbrushed/photoshopped.

Yes, Photoshop is crazy!

I think most people don't notice to what extent it is used nowadays. In my opinion, Photoshop is lying, and I'm surprised it is allowed to be used so freely. All these photos of asia women in the advertisements of this website are photoshopped. (Most photos of any race women that I find in google are)

Since we're on this topic, I will share a few interesting/shocking links!!!! they are a MUST SEE :)

watch this model transform into a model:

step 1- makeup (BIG change)
step 2- photoshop (woah, not the same person)

It doesn't take a girl to look like a girl! Check out this sexy lady :)

Crazy asian voodoo using only makeup (joking) Seriously some of these asian girls are MASTERS, their skill is kind of admirable, but when you think of what they need to do everyday to be considered pretty it just feels sad. (And this is all over the world, not just in asia...all thanks to the media flooding us with photoshoped images):

I told him about that a few different times before. PS is too common in China. They even have easy to use PS style apps to airbrush every photo they take on an iphone. I notice Filipino women are doing it too lately. f**k it, if work is slow today maybe I need to create a post/FAQ on how to properly identify real Chinese women from fake profiles. My wife and I talked about doing that for people here before. I would want sticky status on it though.

This would be great!!! I would really enjoy reading that, as sometimes I even have trouble telling the difference, because some of it can be SO convincing (Since that's the point, I guess)

It would also be great if you could include a section on makeup, because that's crazy stuff as well. You can even use some of the links I posted above if you want.

Especially because when you marry a woman, you are the one who sees them without makeup at home. I frequently hear stories of women that get up early to put on makeup for the first year of marriage so their husband doesn't see them without it.

Also- I think it's very necessary, because many men see these photos of women online and think "wow women from x country are so beautiful and perfect." But then the reality doesn't live up to their expectation when they go there.

Women are beautiful naturally, but if you compare a dandelion to a beautiful rose, the dandelion loses it's appeal. If the rose didn't exist or was extremely rare, that's a sad thing to happen.

That would be ok with me.

Where are these women?
