I just noticed that my father is really good-looking (yes just right now) and I didn't inherit any of his looks.
My folks were the Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh of our neighborhood.
My mother was and is still very nice looking. I guess my dad was back then, but now just looks old. Older than his birthday. Like colonel sanders old.
My daddy's rich and my momma's good looking.
My daddy is rich, a nd my momma is good-lookin'
My mother resembled Botticelli's Venus.
My father looked like Rod Stewart after a month long bender.
Guess which one I took after?
My mom was very pretty like movie star pretty but gained a lot of weight as soon as she had us kids and never lost it.
My father looked just like Keith Prentice from The Boys In The Band. My mom's friends were all in love with him.
my daddy was hung like a horse.
My dad was good looking when he was younger. So was my mom. Now they both need Lifestyle Lifts.
R7 here I have to say that my parents are now in their 70s and funny enough Mom lost weight recently and looks pretty good.
Dad unfortunately being the straight man that he is didn't really take care of himself and now looks like all of his 75 years.
When I was a kid and living with them and seeing them every day, that thought never crossed my mind. A couple of years ago, I came across a photo of my parents right after I was born and I was stunned by how good looking they both were: my father looked like a slightly better version of George Clooney and my mother had a certain resemblance to the pre-booze and pills Elizabeth Taylor. In spite of me benefitting from their good genes, they were shallow people who sought someone who would look as good they did and ended up in a very bad marriage that provided me with a highly dysfunctional childhood.
Yeah, they were. Dad's gone, but Mom's still here.
They were a great looking couple.
I think if I got to the gym and lost a few and got regular sleep I'd be much better looking.
Sadly both my parents were ugly, and the apple does not fall far from the tree. I still curse my mother for not marrying a better looking man.
My Dad looked like a cross between John Hamm and David Schwimmer. My mom looked liked a cross between Lucille Ball and Bette Davis.
I turned out looking like a dark Lucille Ball.
My parents were both very attractive. Unfortunately, I resemble my aunt,who is short and homely.
My mother was quite good looking until she started having kids and it was downhill from there with the weight gain. My father was ugly, with a tard face and ugly feet too small for a man. My mother had flat feet and unfortunately I inherited both bad genes for feet. I would have liked to have had parents who were not neurotic as both of them were. I think if I had had a really handsome and sane father I would have seduced him with me on top by the time I was about 15. I would have been the one doing the spanking.
Madre was a South Texas Chiquita, Dad just died :(
Genetics can be such a bitch.
I'm friends with a guy who's 1 of 4 brothers and they're all hot as hell. Blonde, Ken-Doll Gods. (Think Ken Ryker)
They have two sisters who are both dog ugly. You wouldn't even notice them on the street.
Apparently their parent's gene combo only works for boys.
Sort of like Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.
Both my parents were attractive. Well, it doesn't always work.
Both my parents were gorgeous in their youth.
I don't know what happened with me.
I see kids like you everyday, OP and think to myself what a crap shoot life really is.
I had a friend who, upon seeing a grotesque creature, usually very overweight but not necessarily, would say, "can you believe that that person was once a cooing infant?" I never really gave it much thought but now whenever I see ugly people I have to chuckle when his comment comes to mind. He also wondered about going through life as a short, fat, homely person with a sex drive like Casanova--who the hell would want you? Not just getting homely with age, but being plug ugly ALL your life. I can't imagine it. You'd have to pay for sex that's for sure.
Mom was pretty when she was young and when she was older. I have no earthly idea what she saw in my rat faced father, but she loved him right up till the day she died.
The last words I ever heard her speak was "I love you" and they were said to the lying, cheating, abusive, sadistic alcoholic she called a husband.
Both my parents are good looking people. My mom looks a lot like Elizabeth Montgomery from Bewitched. That kind of makes sense because she was like 2nd cousins with her.
Mine too, R8. He was always free-balling, with his big hog flopping back and forth. Mom was gorgeous, but a childish cunt.
My mom was a pretty girl when she was young, and had a gorgeous figure. There are photos of her at the beach and she truly looks like one of the pin-up girls. She also has always looked younger than her age. Now in her late 70s, still no gray hair. (She got that from her father.)
My dad was never handsome, but wouldn't say he is ugly. He's just plain. He does very little to improve his appearance, and for some odd reason, he's sensitive about his baldness, but he can't tell that the comb-over makes him look ridiculous. I told him it was time to let it go and that the shiny shaved head was in vogue, but he dismissed that idea.
When I was in my 20's I was often referred to as "cute." I did inherit my mother's youth genes, and I'm glad to say that now in my 40s, I still get my share of attention. But I work at staying fit and healthy. I know so many men who after 40 just let it all go to hell.
My mother was pretty when she was younger and "cute" up to the time she died (way too young).
My dad, on the other hand, was movie star good looking. He is in his 70s now and still keeps himself up and looks younger than his years. When I was growing up, he sometimes embarrassed me as he was always shirtless around the house, even if we had company. He was a bit if a show off. Now I think it's kind of cool I had a hunky dad since most of my friends had fat old dads.
A few years ago I found an old black and white pic of my dad. He was probably in his 20s, shirtless in the backyard, wearing a pair of low slung khakis, clearly going commando. He looks like one of those hairless Abercrombie & Fitch models. I have it in a frame in my house. Everyone, but especially the gays, always stops to stare at the photo.
Yes. My mom was a spitting image of Audrey Hepburn. She aged very well too. My dad was the blond, blue-eyed WASP type. The really were both stunning. There are six kids in my family. All of my brothers and sisters could be on the cover of magazines as well. They are gorgeous. All are probably even better looking than my parents were.
Me? Yeah you guessed it. Somehow I got overlooked in the good looks department.
My mother looked a lot like E. Taylor, except she had green eyes. She was stunning.
My father was cute - a boy next door type. Not drop dead handsome, but cute. He had a good body. He was exceptionally smart.
Everyone comments how handsome or good-looking my father is and some of them even dare to comment how ugly my mother is (which is true).
I did not inherit good looks or attractiveness, unfortunately. A lot of it is personality, actually; if you can come across or vibe hot or attractive.
My father is fairly good-looking and would have been even better-looking if he'd had braces when he was young. My mother is large, lumpy, jowly, frizzy-haired, etc. A great person, but not even remotely attractive.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
