Well calling all teen thickettes! If you are between the ages of 13-19, wear a size 12-20 and stand tall at 5’9″ – 6’1″…….
Tyra wants you!
Tyra is holding a plus size teen model search!
“I’ve always felt it was my mission to expand the narrow perceptions of beauty,” she told Us. “Through America’s Next Top Model, True Beauty and The Tyra Show, I challenge industry and universal standards by featuring and celebrating non-traditional beauty, and stressing that true beauty is both inside and out.”
Banks said she was unhappy that the term “plus-sized” has such a “negative connotation” in today’s society.
“I want young girls to realize that what’s considered plus-sized is the average American woman,” Banks said. “That woman is healthy, fit and beautiful. Adolescence is such an impressionable time in a young woman’s life, and I hope this contest helps teen girls discover their own beauty from the inside out.”
The finalists will be introduced on the March 2 episode of her talk show, and the winner of the Fiercely Real Teen Model Search will be crowned the following day. The winner will receive a one-year modeling contract and a spread in a major fashion magazine. (Source: US Mag)
This is huge! Tyra you rock!
My teen thickettes if you are a finalist make sure you mention me on the show! LOL
I believe we all have intuition to know when someone is playing games. We just make the choice to continue to be a fool or to know our worth and move on. However for those who wanted me to do a post on this subject HERE YOU GO
The majority of this advice is from other bloggers so it’s not just my point of view.
1. Phone Contact….He Calls You
You may have his number but most of the time if you call his phone it goes straight to voice mail. That’s a way to control the situation. When a man has a lot of women they refuse to be caught off guard so they send you to voice mail and call you when they can get their thoughts together.
2. You Have a Time Slot
If he is talking to you at the same time of the morning, day or evening. He’ll tell you it’s because of his work schedule or his bowling games. In actuality, he probably has a schedule planner to keep track of who he is to talk to during each time slot! No versatility in schedule is the only way to play a lot of women at one time and you should be aware.
3. Hidden Comments on Social Websites
Stop and think about it. He doesn’t want all of you women leaving him love comments and reading each other. He thrives on the comments and attention, so he keeps them hidden. To you, he’ll tell you he wants your comments to be private between the two of you because your love is so special.
4. Secret Code Public Bulletins
A true player is good. He has to talk to code to you on pubic bulletin boards so that the other women won’t know that he was talking directly to you. Yet, he will make it feel like this is your own special code that no-one else is privileged to know. It is like an inside and special thing between just the two of you.
Hate to tell you, he’s probably using the same code for two, three or even four of you women. That way he saves time posting and doesn’t look like he’s posted a ton of bulletins to everyone he knows.
5. Talking About Other Women Harassing Him
Chances are you will stumble upon some of the other women in his life. You might see a message or figure things out. To solve this problem, players are great at telling you about how they liked a woman, she cheated and they broke up. But she just won’t leave him alone and wants to keep other women from him by making them jealous!
6. Sends Presents to You for No Reason
One really big warning sign of a player is sending presents to you for no reason. See, the trick was to get your home address. They might not be anything but a stuffed animal or his picture in a photo frame. Depending on his income and how many women he is juggling, will determine how expensive the presents are. But regardless, they will be sentimental and have some special or secret meaning for just the two of you, so you won’t forget him when you two aren’t talking on the Internet or phone.
7. Sick Relative
Players are great with the sick relatives. They all of a sudden have to take leave from work to go take care of sick relative for a few days or even up to a couple of weeks. You’ll be amazed at how many people are sick in his family.
What is actually happening, is he finally hit the jackpot as a player. He’s gone to meet the other woman in person and see how it goes. He can’t call you. He can’t be on the Internet. He’ll be too busy romancing her and doesn’t want her to know about you. So, a sick relative with no minutes left on his phone and no Internet access. How perfect!
8. Can’t Remember Your Interests
He’s juggling several women. Chances are this player hasn’t kept a very good list of your interests. Instead of risking mentioning something from a different woman and making you mad, he just shows lack of knowledge in your interests. He’ll listen. But you’ll find the conversations of an player are primarily about himself.
9. Very Open About His Life
A player wants you to trust and like him. One of the best ways to gain this trust and not mess up and say something wrong by accident about a different woman is to be open about his life. You’ll learn all about his job, his past relationships and his relatives.
10. Suddenly Has Multiple Accounts or Phone Numbers
Out of desperation to keep your attention if you are catching onto him being a player, he will threaten to leave the social website . You might even find him talking about starting a whole new account and/or changing his number. If of course you’re his true friend, he’ll tell you what the new screen name and number is. This is to control and make you worry you’ll lose him. It’s also a way to hunt fresh meat. Players typically will not keep the same screen name or number for more than a several months to a year.
11. He expressly denies being one
Men who come straight out (unprovoked) and proclaim that they aren’t players, tend to be precisely that. He will announce this the first time he screws up, or senses that you’re leery about him. And he’s operating on reflex. You see, he’s so used to being accused of being one, that he instinctively plays offense from the start, in the hope you might be gullible enough to believe what you hear, rather than what you see.
12. He’s too smooth
Does he have an answer for everything? A really good answer for everything? I’m not surprised. as it comes from years of practice. He’s made all the big mistakes and has plenty of experience with smoothing things over. He knows what you want to hear, because he’s learned well from his previous enablers. Don’t add yourself to the list.
13. He’s always slightly aloof
He pays just enough attention to make you crave more, but little enough to make you wonder how interested he really is. This ploy is designed to make you want more — which is what most of you end up doing — and some of you will go out of your way to get his attention via methods you wouldn’t normally lower yourself to. That’s exactly what he wants; you crawling on your knees for his attention.
14. He’s fantastic in bed
These guys are so good in bed that many women will overlook the crap he pulls, just to get the chance to play house with him. Not every man who is good in bed is a player, obviously, but if he is, and if he’s also got any of the previous traits, he’s probably a player. Unfortunately, this trait is desirable enough that many women are willing to overlook the other traits, if only for a period of time.*Note* he can also be average or horrible in bed and still be a player!
15. His communication skills suck
Unless there’s a very good reason, if a man doesn’t answer your text/email/phone call within 24 hours, he’s playing a game. And the men who deny the truth of that statement by claiming that some men are just too busy…? They’re full of shit. If you really like someone, you can find a minute to at least text them. No one is that busy! If your man does this on a regular basis, he’s playing games.
16. He makes you feel like you’re overreacting when you’re not
Let me give you an example: He promises to call you at 8pm, but doesn’t contact you until the next day. Why? Because he decided that pizza with his mates would be more fun. When asked why he couldn’t be bothered to let you know, to send you a text at least, he replies by making you feel like you’re being clingy or too demanding.
