that has affected me more than i ever thought possible.
my sophmore year in high school there were so many seminary students that the seminary building and the one teacher could not manage them all.
brother cowboy was called to be our seminary teacher and chauffeur. he taught us every morning and then would take us to school. he was super cool and i remember him being a good teacher, but i dont remember a single thing he taught i only remember him telling us this:
he was joking about dating after he got home from his mission and how his grandmother admonished him to date at least 12 girls before he got married. he told about a few of the girls, but one stuck one in my brain-the one he broke up with because he didnt like how her thumbs looked. it was a funny story. they werent engaged or anything, but after a couple of dates he decided not to see her anymore because of her "weird" thumbs.
i havent thought much about it, but it came to me after i had been struggling with some self esteem issues, wondering why any man would be attracted to me(despite historical data contradicting these thoughts) because of my horrible disfigurements. ok-i MIGHT have been pms'ing, but i am not the only girl who goes through this, i assure you.
i digress-it got me thinking that if this great man(brother cowboy)rejected a perfectly nice woman because of her thumbs, what ridiculous grounds would a man reject me?
i have been racking my brain, trying to remember if i ever eliminated any guy because of something so silly.
have you? have you rejected someone because of their thumbs, or their feet, or any other shallow reason?
