Pentecostal rules of dating
You don't notice the ordinary-looking Pentecostal women because they're, well, ordinary-looking and don't draw attention.It's the very obese ones you notice, so you've got a preconceived notion of Pentecostal women as fat and homely.But if she refuses to wear something on her head, let her cut off her hair.(Contemporary English Version) and, coloring and perms are also out, as preached by (male) ministers.I'll point out that I have been friends with several Pentecostal guys over the years, and none of them are what I'd call unattractive..are all normal looking, and here's the thing: almost NONE of them have been fat.In fact they are often lean from working on the farms (many of the Pentecostals are farmers, though not all.Cosmetics make a vastly larger difference in the appearance of a woman than you might otherwise think.
Secondly, I don't know if Pentecostals are even heard of outside the Midwest.So: Is there some kind of Pentecostal diet that consists of a lot of extremely fattening foods, causing all the women to have this build?Are there genes in the Pentecostal families that are widely shared and that result in the homely looks and the large, rotund bodies?So: Is there some kind of Pentecostal diet that consists of a lot of extremely fattening foods, causing all the women to have this build? First, Pentecostals (of the type you describe) do not have much in the way of recreation except for going to church ... Many still obey the no TV rule, definitely no movies (though some went to see the Passion movie), and under no circumstances, dancing.Are there genes in the Pentecostal families that are widely shared and that result in the homely looks and the large, rotund bodies? No swimming, unless it's in a (gender) segregated venue.
*L* I think it has to do with the "Holiness" culture- perhaps the men are outside working hard & burn it off while the women stay inside, also working hard, but doing a lot of cooking, and tasting, and eating *L*; also let's face it, there's not a lot of other things they are allowed to indulge in. I also wonder if perhaps a religion which emphasises NOT dolling oneself up may attract/retain homely women. Now to be totally pervy- when an attractive woman, be she Pentecostal, Holiness, Mennonite or similar, has that whole clean-scrubbed no-makeup, long dress, long-hair-done-up look, she can be really hot.
