True that. Everyone and I mean EVERYONE looks better when in shape. I have been on both sides of this several times. Chubby youngster who got in shape and played football throughout highschool...got out of shape again after college and back in superman shape a few years later.Let make this clear. Most black men don't go crazy over lightskinned women. I've been close to too many brothers to know this. You may have that small percentage who prefer lightskin, however that's when these particular brothers be young and practical virgins. By the time they reach twenty, everybody already had a lightskinned girl before, or soon will. Why anybody would think a full grown man would still be stuck on one tone is beyond me, with all these different shades of black.
I still think the white media is behind the light skinned envy campaign, and Hollywood seem to be the ones who use lightskinned women, darkskinned men, and very lightskinned men. But when I go outside, the people who got the best looking partners are the people who stay in good shape themselves. That always worked for me most, and that seem to attract all shades...and ages too, which may or may not be a good thing. A lot of people want to believe it's the skin tone, and I must admit that can help, but staying in shape is the key. I think we all really know that down inside.
The difference in the level of people you attract from out of shape to in shape is MIND BLOWING.
