    A couple of things stand out about this story at least to me and I d like you opinons. First of all online you can't see pictures of some of the so called babes, the ones that are considered perfect, but if you saw their faces you would be shocked out of your shoes.

    The question I have is this: Is your definition of the perfect woman one who is actually a size 00, with a mousey face, or is your ideal woman more of an actual woman with an actual figure and a pretty face? In other words the article implies that the standard for perfection at the Borgata is 00 and very average face but a woman that is maybe a size 2- to a size 10 with a normal womanly shape and pretty face doesn't make the cut????
    And I have been to this casino a few times so I know what Im talking about.

    When you take a job promoting itself as a job for a glamorous woman, then you should expect that they are going to maintain some kind of standard on appearance.

    Well, first of all I wouldn't be going to a casino to shop for
    the perfect women. Second, I could care less what they have to say
    about what a perfect woman looks like.

    Third...I think they should be able to hire an fire whatever "look" they choose.

    If the only women they get to apply for the positions are skinny/ugly soon they'll have to change there standards or be happy with the few skinny/cute ones that apply also.

    I feel they should be able to hire anyone they want, the women know what the hiring requirments are when they start the job, they had a choice at that time to either take the job or look somewhere else.

    Many men don't like the sick Lara Flynn Boyle look thank goodness, most of us can't maintain that and we don't look good like that anyway. It's certainly not my idea of pretty.

    o re: this story...

    The Hotel has a right to hire an 'image'. It's within that right they dictate latitude towards achieving the image they want.


    o re: Women...

    My idea of a beautiful woman...get ready for what reads like a cop-out.

    All depends. I am attracted mostly to shorter, thinner (than what is the [quotey-fingers]'Norm'[/quotey-fingers])women...say, shorter than 5'6"...thinner than 115-120lbs. Women taller than that don't seem to 'light my fire' so to speak...much heavier and It's hard for me to feel like they can 'cuddle into' me.

    Having said that....I can find beauty in many places. My step-brother's wife is a model. I'd guess she's a size 12 at least. She's stunning. Here are a few of her photos:

    She's easily the most beautiful woman I've ever met. She's classy and graceful and down-to-earth. Would I date a woman, a little larger than what I find 'attractive' physically? Absolutely. To me, 'who' a woman is can go a long way to define how attractive to me she is.

    I find many different types of women attractive. My wife is thin and tall, but I have dated many shorter women (read: 5'2" and shorter); some with large chests, some without; some thin, some larger, some in between; some darker, some lighter. I think you have to look at a woman as a "total package" and not limit yourself to a particular hair color, or bust size, or height.

    True they should be able to hire anyone they want... Im more curious as to what you think of their definition of "perfection" does that jive with your opinion or is that out of sink with common perceptions??
