I’ve been seeing a girl for awhile now and things are good. She’s clicked with me in a wonderful way and the feeling’s mutual. Part of me thinks she could be the one … but fear not, this isn’t another beleaguered relationship thread.
When I first met her, I was impressed with the whole package. She’s got a solid head on her shoulders and those shoulders are attached to good body … so good that I wondered almost immediately whether I needed to pinch myself. She seemed nicely endowed for such a slender girl. I’m no spring chicken, and I can spot a boob job pretty quick, but somewhere in the corner of my mind, I couldn’t help but wonder. Just the other night as we were spending a little QT with one another, she confessed to me (rather nervously) that she’d been augmented about five years ago when she was 21. She took so long to come clean with what she had to say because she was scared to death that my reaction wouldn’t be good. I think I may have made some comments previously on the subject, so her reluctance was understandable, but I started to get genuinely scared that she was preparing to drop a bomb on me. When she finally took my hands and placed them on her chest without saying anything, it was clear what she was meaning to say. I was expecting something much worse … perhaps that she was infertile, or divorced, or had a kid, or some other baggage … or I dunno, maybe that she wasn’t actually a girl. I told her that the only important thing to me was whether she was comfortable with having them and didn’t completely resent having the procedure done. She said it was a decision that, like her tattooes, she later regretted, but not so much so that she’s going to have the procedure undone. She used to be a large A or small B cup, now she’s a pretty full C cup, so they’re not overly huge or ridiculous looking, and there are no scars, so it’s not as if they’re a completely unnatural monstrosity like those you’d see on cheap, mutilated porn stars.
The thing is, I’ve never actually given much thought to whether I’d really want to be with an augmented girl. It’s not so much an aversion to the implants themselves as it is the idea of being with someone whose self-image was such that they’d want to do that to their own body. She doesn’t really fit the profile of the sort of vapid girl most most would picture as the ideal candidate for this procedure, so that’s another reason I was taken aback by it. I really like the girl, and this isn’t an issue which is going to come between us … I’m just looking to see where other guys come down on this. I’m sure some men will take tits in any form they come, while others will be more discriminating. However, I also think most men would agree on preferring a girl who’s natural simply on principle. I’ve always preferred a natural look free from tattoos, piercings or augmentations such as this, but I’ve been with pierced and tattooed girls despite it not being my preference because neither is a dealbreaker to me (whereas something like being a smoker would be). Now that I’m actually with one, my opinion of implants is at odds with my opinion of one girl in particular who is truly wonderful.
So guys, did your opinion on this subject ever shift after meeting an augmented girl who really meant something to you? And ladies, have you had friends who wouldn’t fit the profile of someone who’d want or need them, but got them anyway? Would you dismiss or form a negative opinion of someone you were best friends with over something like this?
