Adel was not what you call a beautiful woman on the outside, but she had a sweet disposition and was enjoyable company. Many of the dates who came to take out her sister, liked sitting and talking with her while they waited. She was smart and witty and seemed genuinely interested in the people she was talking to. But her sister had all the dates. Adel would sit at home and read while her sister would go out several times a week.

When Adel moved away for college a year later, she was not treated any better. Driving to her night job at a nearby bookstore, she noticed a billboard that had an ad for a plastic surgeon specializing in breast enlargements. Normally, this would not catch her attention, but she was feeling particularly low this day and felt she needed a change in her life.

She wanted to be noticed and have the attention of the handsome guys at the college. The next day, she called and set the appointment. Three months later, she had a complete makeover. Large breasts, sculpted features in her face, liposuction on her thighs, a tummy tuck, a reshaping of her butt, a new hair color, permanent make up, laser surgury for her eyes so she no longer needed her bulky glasses, the works!

Then, to her surprise, the guys started to pay her attention. She no longer had a natural appearance as she once had. It was now, sort of an artificial beauty, but the guys who liked that sort of thing flocked around her. They were all now interested in only one thing and it wasn't her personality.

She got everything she wanted from her permanent makeover. Everything but love! However, her phone never stopped ringing.

Moral: Consider your objective before committing yourself.
