I must admit, the Jersey Shore is one of my guilty pleasures.. It’s raw, outrageous and gives you that “I feel embarrassed for her..” feeling.
So why is the way the women act on the show SO wrong? What can we learn from them?
1. Wearing Less Clothing DOES NOT Make You Look Sexy The proverbial “Less is More” statement goes into effect here. Yes, wearing your grandmother’s bloomers will not get guys lining up at the door. But should you really leave the house in booty shorts and a bra? Guys do enjoy when there’s a little left up to the imagination. Don’t wear a potato sack though, show off your best features (aka great hourglass figure or sexy legs).
2. Telling Someone You’re Classy Probably Means You Are Not Classy (What You Should Not Say)
Don’t curse. It’s one of the most unattractive things a woman can do. Its masculine, rude and can make you seem downright intimidating (in a bad way).
Don’t burp or fart. Don’t talk about poop(ing). Talk about TMI. You will no longer be mysterious, you will be gross and completely undesirable.
Don’t yell, squeak, scream (unless you’re being attacked or see a mouse). Other than being annoying, it will force people to stop listening to you all together. It also tells everyone that you are an attention whore – which no one likes OR finds sexy.
3. Drinking Copious Amounts of Alcohol (See my previous post..)
4. Fighting Really? Why in the world would you get into a physical fight with someone? I can only think of one word to describe girls fighting – trashy. Its lewd and embarrassing. And so what if you win the fight? You still come out with smeared makeup, crazy hair and broken nails. How is that worth it?
5. Having Random Sex
First off, EW. Being known as a “walking STD” is obviously not attractive, nor enviable. Sleeping around with the abandon of a Jersey Shore girl is downright risky, and the odds are not in your favor. In 2009 there were over 1.2 million cases of Chlamydia in the U.S. Ew Ew Ew.
Acting “slutty” will not only get a reputation, it will wear on your emotions and self esteem. I do not believe that women can have random sex and not be at all affected down the road. Many times, a one-night-stand turns into a crush. Before you know it, your feelings are hurt. Not worth it.
Jersey Shore may be fun to watch, but PLEASE for God’s sake don’t emulate it.
