Stacy's Mom

Dear Readers:

I often hear women say "my mother is beautiful." It's touching that a daughter feels that for her mother, but I always feel there's a subtle hidden message to this statement.

Note: I think there's m
ore to every statement made by women but that's another issue.

Do you guys mean she's physically beautiful or beautiful on the inside? Or both? And what is the motivation for telling a guy this information?


Any advice on the female mind would be appreciated.

I wouldn't know because I never refer to my mother as beautiful. But I used to refer to my grandmother that way. I think it mostly refers to inner beauty, because my grandmother, although attractive for her age, was 90 when she passed away. But she never looked more beautiful to me. I loved every wrinkle and age spot. It's the love shining through, I believe. (My mom and I don't have a great relationship, so maybe that's why I don't feel the same about her.) Why do we say this to a guy? Hmmmm....not sure about that. In fact, I don't know if I've ever said it to a guy, (just girlfriends) so I'm no help there!

I have had a lot of guy friends in my life. A lot of them have mentioned that they alway like to see a picture or meet someones mom, before they get too involved. They think that if a girls mom is hot at their age, the girl will retain her "hotness" when she gets to be that age. So a girl saying that their mom is beautiful, could pertain to her trying to convince a guy that she will always be beautiful. I dought if she is saying this on purpose, but subconciously, I think this might be part of the agenda.
