Explanation of the Trichromatic Theory of Color Vision

The trichromatic theory of color vision, also known as the Young-Helmholtz theory, states that the retina has three types of receptor cells, which react to light of three different wavelengths - red, green and blue. These cells are responsible for the perception of colors.

It is estimated that the average human eye can distinguish about ten million colors from one another!

In 1802, Thomas Young proposed that there are three types of photoreceptor cells in the eyes of humans and other primates. These cells allow the eye to perceive colors and differentiate between them. Hermann von Helmholtz further developed this theory in 1850, stating that the cone photoreceptor cells of three types are sensitive to different wavelengths of light. They can be classified as short-preferring, middle-preferring, and long-preferring, based on their response to different wavelengths. The short, middle, and long-preferring cells correspond to the blue, green and red regions of the color spectrum, respectively.

In 1956, Gunnar Svaetichin first showed that there exist three types of receptor cells that are sensitive to three different wavelengths. In 1983, Dartnall, Bowmaker, and Mollon obtained readings from the cone cells of the human eye and Svaetichin's theory was thus validated for the human eye.

Tri stands for three and chroma is the Greek word for color. The term 'trichromacy' (also called trichromatism) refers to the condition of having three independent channels that convey information about colors, derived from three different types of cones. The three types of cone cells have different absorption spectra. Simply put, 'trichromatic' means 'having perception of three primary colors'. Humans and some other mammals are trichromats. A recent study showed that marsupials possess trichromatic vision. Some insects are trichromats; for example, honeybees that can distinguish between ultraviolet, blue and green light.

Color vision is the ability of an organism to distinguish between colors. Cone cells in the retina of the eye, are responsible for color vision. They are photoreceptor cells sensitive to different wavelengths of light. The activation of cone cells caused by lights of different wavelengths, leads to the perception of many different colors.

Cone cells are responsible for color vision and color sensitivity. They work well in bright light than in dim light. Six to seven million cone cells are found in the retina of a human eye. They are of three types, L-cones, M-cones and S-cones, which have three different types of photosensitive pigments, with a photoreceptive protein called photopsin (or cone opsin). Each pigment is sensitive to a specific wavelength of light and responds to variation in colors in a different way. L-cones respond to light of long wavelengths such as red, M-cones respond to medium wavelengths such as green, and S-cones respond to light of short wavelengths such as blue.

The response of cone cells depends on the wavelength and intensity of light that they react with. The brain cannot differentiate between colors if it receives signals from only one type of cone cells. It is required that a minimum of two types of cones interact with each other so that color vision happens. The brain can examine the signals from at least two cone types and decide the intensity and color of the light.

Light from an object strikes the rod and cone cells in the retina. The rods and cones send neural signals to the bipolar cells. The bipolar cells are located between photoreceptors (rods and cones) and ganglion cells. These cells then transmit visual signals to the ganglionic cells, which carry signals to the brain.

The retinal ganglion cell is a neuron that exists near the inner surface of the retina of the eye. Signals from the eyes are carried to the brain. They are processed in the thalamic region and other parts of the brain, and reach the visual cortex of the cerebrum. From the visual cortex, signals move to other parts of the brain for further processing.

Psychologists say that color perception happens when the neurons in the brain are stimulated. These neurons react to various characteristics of the perceived object like edges, angles, patterns, movement, and luminosity.

Monochromacy refers to the condition of having only one channel to convey color information. In this case, an individual cannot distinguish between colors and is unable to perceive the difference in brightness of colors. This condition can result from complete absence of cone cells or presence of only one type of cone cells.

Lacking any one type of cone cells leads to a condition called dichromacy. Lack of short-wavelength cones is termed as tritanopia, lack of medium-wavelength cones is referred to as deuteranopia and lack of long-wavelength cones is called protanopia.

Anomalous trichromacy is a condition in which an individual makes color matches that are different from the normal.

Mutation of red or green photoreceptors leads to red-green color blindness pronounced as the inability to distinguish between red and green hues. Those with blue-yellow color blindness cannot differentiate between blue and green hues as also yellow and red hues.

Some aspects of color vision cannot be explained by the trichromatic theory. There is a phenomenon of color afterimages. When we stare at a bright green color for some time and then look away at a white wall, we perceive a red color, and the converse happens after looking at red. The same applies to blue and yellow.

Based on the phenomenon of color afterimages, Ewald Hering proposed the opponent process theory of color vision. He said that color vision takes place in three channels where opposite or complementary colors are in competition. The visual system is responsive to three color pairs which are green-red, blue-yellow, and black-white. The color vision is because of the combined response of these components. His theory suggested that the colors in each pair oppose each other. For example, red-green receptors cannot send messages about both colors at the same time. The theory also explained the concept of afterimages. Red and green are complementary colors. When we stare at red for some time, our redness detectors get tired. Their antagonists, the green receptors, take the lead and we see a green afterimage after staring at red for long.

Thus, we saw how the trichromatic theory of color vision explains how photoreceptor cells enable us to perceive and distinguish between colors. It surely helps us understand the amazing mechanism of the eyes and the brain in perceiving colors. It is due their brilliant working that we can appreciate the beauty of colors.

The Secret Libraries of History
The Secret Libraries of History
After news emerged about an underground reading room in Damascus, Fiona Macdonald discovers the places where writing has been hidden for centuries.Beneath the streets of a suburb of Damascus, rows of shelves hold books that have been rescued from bombed-out buildings. Over the past four years, during the siege of Darayya, volunteers have collected 14,000 books from shell-damaged homes. They are held in a location kept secret amid fears that it would be targeted by government and pro-Assad forces, and visitors have to dodge shells and bullets to reach the underground reading space.It’s been called Syria’s secret library, and many view it as a vital resource. “In a sense the library gave me back my life,” one regular user, Abdulbaset Alahmar, told the BBC. “I would say that just like the body needs food, the soul needs books.”Religious or political pressures have meant that books have been hidden throughout history – whether in secret caches or private collections. One of those is now known as ‘the Library Cave’.The Library CaveOn the edge of the Gobi Desert in China, part of a network of cave shrines at Dunhuang called the Thousand Buddha Grottoes, it was sealed for almost 1000 years. In 1900, Taoist monk Wang Yuanlu – an unofficial guardian of the caves – discovered the hidden door that led to a chamber filled with manuscripts dating from the fourth to the 11th Centuries.Provincial authorities showed little interest in the documents after Wang contacted them; but news of the cave spread, and Hungarian-born explorer Aurel Stein persuaded him to sell about 10,000 manuscripts. Delegations from France, Russia and Japan followed, and most of the ancient texts left the cave. According to The New Yorker, “By 1910, when the Chinese government ordered the remaining documents to be transferred to Beijing, only about a fifth of the original hoard remained.”Despite that, many of the original manuscripts can now be seen: an initiative to digitise the collection was launched in 1994. The International Dunhuang Project – led by the British Library, with partners worldwide – means that, as The New Yorker says, “Armchair archive-divers can now examine the earliest complete star chart in the world, read a prayer written in Hebrew by a merchant on his way from Babylon to China, inspect a painting of a Christian saint in the guise of a bodhisattva, examine a contract drawn up for the sale of a slave girl to cover a silk trader’s debt, or page through a book on divination written in Turkic runes.”No one knows why the cave was sealed: Stein argued that it was a way of storing manuscripts no longer used but too important to be thrown away, a kind of ‘sacred waste’, while French sinologist Paul Pelliot believed it happened in 1035, when the Xi Xia empire invaded Dunhuang. Chinese scholar Rong Xinjiang has suggested that the cave was closed off amid fears of an invasion by Islamic Karakhanids, which never occurred.Whatever the reason they were originally hidden, the cave’s contents have altered history since they were revealed just over a century ago. One of the Dunhuang documents, the Diamond Sutra, is a key Buddhist sacred work: according to the British Library, the copy in the cave dates back to 868 and is “the world's earliest complete survival of a dated printed book”.It’s a reminder that paper and printing did not originate in Europe. “Printing began as a form of prayer,” says The New Yorker, “the equivalent of turning a prayer wheel or slipping a note into the Western Wall in Jerusalem, but on an industrial scale.”A wing and a prayerThe location of another hidden stash of religious texts has been known since it was founded in 1612 – yet that hasn’t stopped it being the subject of conspiracy theories. The Vatican Secret Archives feature papal correspondences going back more than 1000 years, and appeared in Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons, as a Harvard ‘symbologist’ battled the Illuminati. The rumoured contents of the collection include alien skulls, documentation of the bloodline of Jesus and a time machine called the Chronovisor, built by a Benedictine monk so that he could go back in time and film Jesus’ crucifixion.In an attempt to dispel the myths, access has been opened up in recent years, and there was an exhibition of documents from the archives at the Capitoline Museums in Rome. Pope Leo XIII first allowed carefully vetted scholars to visit in 1881, and now many documents can be viewed by researchers – although browsing is prohibited. The word ‘secret’ in the name comes from the Latin ‘secretum’, which is closer to ‘private’; yet areas of the archives remain off-limits.Scholars aren’t allowed to look at any papal papers since 1939, when the controversial wartime Pontiff Pius XII became Pope, and a section of the archives relating to the personal affairs of cardinals from 1922 onwards can’t be accessed.Housed in a concrete bunker, part of a wing behind St Peter’s Basilica, the archives are protected by Swiss Guards and officers from the Vatican City’s own police force. They reinforce the power of the words held within. As well as correspondence between the Vatican and figures such as Mozart, Erasmus, Charlemagne, Voltaire and Adolf Hitler, there is King Henry VIII’s request to annul his marriage to Catherine of Aragon: when this was refused by Pope Clement VII, Henry divorced her and sparked Rome’s break with the Church of England. The archives also contain Pope Leo X’s 1521 decree excommunicating Martin Luther, a handwritten transcript of the trial against Galileo for heresy and a letter from Michelangelo complaining he hadn’t been paid for work on the Sistine Chapel.Another brick in the wallNot defended by armed guard but by centuries of forgetting, one collection in Old Cairo (Fustat), Egypt was left alone until a Romanian Jew recognised its significance. Jacob Saphir described the stash in an 1874 book – yet it wasn’t until 1896, when Scottish twin sisters Agnes Lewis and Margaret Gibson showed some of its manuscripts to fellow Cambridge University academic Solomon Schechter, that the trove became widely known.Hidden in a wall of the Ben Ezra synagogue were almost 280,000 Jewish manuscript fragments: what has come to be called the Cairo Genizah. According to Jewish law, no writings containing the name of God can be thrown away: those that have fallen out of use are stored in an area of a synagogue or cemetery until they can be buried. The repository is known as a genizah, which comes from the Hebrew originally meaning ‘to hide away’, and later known as an ‘archive’.For 1000 years, the Jewish community in Fustat deposited their texts in the sacred store. And the Cairo Genizah was left untouched. “Medieval Jews hardly wrote anything at all – whether personal letters or shopping lists – without referring to God,” says The New Yorker. As a result, “we have a frozen postbox of some two hundred and fifty thousand fragments composing an unparalleled archive of life in Egypt from the ninth to the nineteenth centuries… No other record as long or as full exists.”Ben Outhwaite, the head of genizah research at Cambridge, told The New Yorker how important the Cairo Genizah collection is for scholars. “It is not hyperbole to talk about it as having rewritten what we knew of the Jews, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean in the Middle Ages.”The fragments reveal that Jewish merchants collaborated with Christians and Muslims; that Jews were treated more tolerantly than previously assumed, and anti-Semitism was less common than thought. Their importance is increasingly being acknowledged. In 2013, the libraries of Oxford and Cambridge Universities joined together to raise funds to keep the collection intact – the first time they have worked together in this way.At the time, David Abulafia, author of The Great Sea: A Human History of the Mediterranean, said: “The Cairo Genizah documents are like a searchlight, illuminating dark corners of the history of the Mediterranean and shedding a bright light on the social, economic and religious life of the Jews not just of medieval Egypt but of lands far away. There is nothing to compare with them as source for the history of the 10th to 12th Centuries, anywhere in Europe or the Islamic world.”Between the linesIn 2013, the Dutch Medieval book historian Erik Kwakkel described ‘a remarkable discovery’ made by students in a class he taught at Leiden University. “While studentswere systematically going through the binding remains in the library,” he says in a blog post titled A Hidden Medieval Archive Surfaces, they found “132 notes, letters and receipts from an unidentified court in the Rhine region, jotted on little slips of paper. They were hidden inside the binding of a book printed in 1577”.Rather than being ‘sacred waste’ too important to throw away, the fragments were examples of rubbish recycled by bookbinders. “Recycling medieval written material was a frequent occurrence in the workshop of early-modern (as well as medieval) binders,” writes Kwakkel. “When a printed book from 1577 was to be fitted with its binding, the binder grabbed the 132 paper slips from his equivalent of a blue recycling bin and moulded them, likely wet, into cardboard boards.”The process means that words never intended for posterity can still be read today. “The slips are first of all remarkable simply because such small written objects rarely survive from medieval society… There are few places where such objects can slumber undisturbed for centuries,” he says. “This is when their long journey to our modern period started, as stowaways hitchhiking on 16th Century printed matter.”Including receipts, requests to servants and shopping lists, it’s a collection that’s rare for historians. “Messages like these bring us as close to real medieval society as you can get,” writes Kwakkel. “They are the medieval voices we normally don’t hear, that tell the story of what happened ‘on the ground’.”And it’s a collection that could be far bigger than first thought. Using an X-ray technology created to look beneath the surface of paintings and detect earlier stages of composition, Kwakkel has developed a way to see through fragile book bindings. In October 2015, he began scanning early printed books in Leiden University Library.“The new technique is amazing in that it shows us fragments – medieval text – that we could otherwise never see because they are hidden behind a layer of parchment or paper,” wrote Kwakkel in a blog post about his Hidden Library project. While the technology needs to be improved, it hints at a process that could reveal a secret library within a library. “We might be able to accessa hidden medieval ‘library’ if we were able to gain access to the thousands of manuscript fragments hidden in bindings.”If you would like to comment on this story or anything else you have seen on BBC Culture, head over to ourFacebookpage or message us onTwitter.And if you liked this story,sign up for the weekly bbc.com features newsletter, called “If You Only Read 6 Things This Week”.

Where Can I Find Plastic Injection Molding Manufacturers in China?
Where Can I Find Plastic Injection Molding Manufacturers in China?
This article was originally published on the Sourcing Allies blog“What kind of materials can be used in plastic injection molding?”‍PLASTIC INJECTION MOLDINGWhat is the plastic injection molding process?This process is similar to that of metal die casting. In this process, molten plastic is injected into a die under pressure and held until it cools. Once it becomes solid, the die is opened and the plastic casting is taken out. Plastic injection molding is an extremely versatile, precise, fast and inexpensive method of mass producing plastic products.What materials can be used?This process mainly uses both thermoplastics and thermoset plastics, each of which have their own advantages and limitations. The primary difference between the two is that thermoplastics can be melted back into liquid form or recycled while thermoset plastics cannot.ThermoplasticsPros: Recyclable, cost efficient (because waste during manufacturing process can be reused), increased impact resistance because of flexibility.Cons: Lower heat and chemical resistance (they degrade faster.)ThermosetPros: Higher chemical and thermal resistance and higher mechanical strength and dimensional stability.Cons: Cannot be recycled, lower impact resistance. Also, thermoset plastics are more difficult to work with so you might find it difficult to find suppliers for them.What will I need in terms of design input?We must have 3D files in STEP or IGES formats.Where in China can you find plastic injection molding factories?Depending on what kind of plastic you want to use for your product, these suppliers can be found all around China. Different factories have different quality levels and expertise.How much does tooling cost?It can cost from a few thousand dollars for simple tooling to hundreds of thousands for more complex multi-cavity tools.How long does tooling last?It depends on the material, but most likely 200,000 pieces is not a problem.What is the average lead time for tooling?15 days to three months depending on complexity.Do plastic injection molding products or their tooling need any final finishes?It is not unusual for injected parts to need final machining. This may also include addition of inserts (that can also be inserted during casting) or threads cutting. Final surface finishes may also be needed such as powder coating or paint application. Sometimes, under some circumstances the tool itself may need a special surface texture added, which will imprint on the final injected parts.What are the pros and cons of plastic injection molding?Pros:Consistent measurements.Quick production rate.Low cost per unit.Good surface finish.Products can often be recyclable.Manufacturing process can be quite cheap because scrap can be recycled/reused.ConsTooling cost.Warpage and shrinkage.Some thermosetting plastics or rubbers cannot be recycled.Recycled material will not give as good performance as new material.What are the known challenges of the plastic injection molding process?Some suppliers will use recycled material without telling you. Material type used is critical if you are looking for specific physical properties or performance. Additionally, shrinkage can be problematic across larger surface areas.Sourcing Allies is a team of expert China sourcing agents that has helped western customers manufacture and source products from low-cost regions since 2006.For more on plastic injection molding visit our website or write to us at info@sourcingallies.com.·RELATED QUESTIONWhat are some good skin whitening masks?Skin color is not a determiner of someone’s beauty.

What Is Preventing the Solar Energy and Other Renewables to Replace the Oil?
What Is Preventing the Solar Energy and Other Renewables to Replace the Oil?
Solar energy and other renewables do not return the energy invested compared with fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are also portable-they have lots of energy and they can be transported. Not true of solar or wind, which are site specific and have to be part of an electrical grid. There's also the fact that the oil and coal still sitting underground is worth trillions to the oil companies, and the people who run those companies get rich from the status quo1. what is the most common and renewable energy sources?solar energy or w can use water as hydropowr2. Do solar energy panels for your home make sense?I looked into it once, just for the hell of it. I assumed the sun would shine 12 hours every day, which it does not in this part of the world.I assumed no maintenance cost. The pay-back was about 20 years.In all the companies I have worked for, if the pay-back on a project is over 4 years, it has no chance. The payback depends on the cost of electricity from the local supplier, the maintenance cost, the amount and intensity of sunlight and the installed cost of panels. This is all constantly changing. As the situation stands now, I would rather invest my money in lottery tickets or better still buy good stocks.3. What kind of fuel is the most used one for generating energy?We rely mainly on coal, nuclear, natural gas, hydroelectric, and petroleum power and a small amount from solar energy, tidal harnesses, wind generators, and geothermal sources. 80% of the world's energy consumption is in fossil fuels -- coal, oil and natural gas. Coal is still "king" right now at almost 50% of the US energy needs. Oil is a modest second. .4. How much do you know about solar energy?enough to know it's not the way to go for the future. I also know enough not to count wikipedia as a reliable resource. I firmly believe that nuclear is going to be the common source of power in the future.5. How is solar energy stored for later use?I have a solar panel system installed by a team called cotterill civils from birmingham, the midlands. If you need understand more about it, i would see there site as it has an informational6. Solar Energy | Save & Learn More with ChooseEnergy®The United States is on track to top 3 million solar PV installations this year, adding 1 million photovoltaic panels in just two years, according to a study by Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables and the Solar Energy Industries Association. The number will exceed 4 million in 2023, the study says. It took more than 40 years for the first million installations. "The rapid growth in the solar industry has completely reshaped the energy conversation in this country," said Abigail Ross Hopper, SEIA president and CEO, in a press release announcing the study. The 2.7 million solar systems installed through September 2020 have the capacity to generate nearly 89 gigawatts of electricity. The solar industry employs about 250,000 Americans, the SEIA says. The expansion of solar is part of a growing movement toward renewable energy. Green energy made up 22.5 percent of all electricity generated in the country in 2020, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Solar energy was responsible for about 14.7 percent of the green energy generated.7. can solar energy generate electricity in a home alone? what is needed?.?Adequate #of Solar Panels Adequate #of Storage Batteries Battery Charge Controller System load management Controller Mounting and wiring equipment Gas or Diesel Generator (Properly sized) I would figure on spending around $30,000-$40,000 for a decent system. This system will not give you air conditioning or heat, but will probably be adequate for a small homes other electrical, with some inconveniences at times. There are many companies offering these on the Internet. Some of them have forms and calculations for sizing all the equipment based on your location. You are not in a very good area because of a lot of rain, so diesel will need to run a lot. The most important thing in sizing system is to be accurate in listing ALL appliances electrical loads you have and how many hours/day they operate.

My hair is outrageously curly and frizzy, help!?Your hair texture changes as you age due to hormones. The stylists will recommend a keratin treatment - this contains formaldehyde, which is carcinogenic. Do not believe them if they say it is formaldehyde-free or chemical-free, or that XYZ brand is 'safe' - the process requires formaldehyde to set the keratin, and the heat changes some ingredients to formaldehyde gas. If the stylist needs a mask in order to put it on you, it's toxic. Some women have also had all their hair fall out from keratin treatments. Curly hair needs different techniques to straight hair to maintain - you are more than your hair, but working with your hair's natural texture is easier than working against it.3. what is better [natural] curly or straight hair?Curly. And I dispute most of the thing you said that you can not do with it. Sure, it's not the same as with the straight, but it's not impossible. As for myself, I have had bangs, and well, duh you can not brush it without frizzing, you are separating the individual strands.

Why Does an Air Conditioner Sometimes Take so Much Time to Cool a Room?
Why Does an Air Conditioner Sometimes Take so Much Time to Cool a Room?
In one word "capacity".Capacity" in relation to air conditioners is a measure of how fast they can transfer heat from inside the room to outside.Every room presents a "heat load" This is a combination of:The size of the roomThe temperature difference between inside the room versus outside the roomThe type of insulation / insulating materials between the room and outside the roomThe orientation of the room with respect to the sunThe number and type of windows and window dressings (awnings / curtains etc)The number of occupantsOther sources of heat including lights, devices such as televisions, computersAs your air conditioner extracts heat from the room, additional heat is being added to the room both from outside the room and from sources of heat within the room.If your room is eventually cooling down but takes a long time, that suggests that the capacity of the air conditioner is greater than the heat load, but not by much. In other words, you have little spare capacity.Your options to improve the situation are:Reduce the room's heat load. Things like covering windows with external shade, internal thermal curtains, better ceiling insulation etc. Ensure that the air conditioner is able to run effectively, with as much capacity as possible. Things like ensuring the indoor units filters are clean, ensuring both the indoor and outdoor coils are clean, checking that indoor and outdoor fans are all operational.If you have done everything possible to reduce the heat load and maximise the effectiveness of your air conditioner and it still takes too long to cool your room, another option is to turn it on earlier, so there is less heat to remove from the room, or leave it on at a higher setpoint, again to reduce the amount of heat the air conditioner has to remove before you feel comfortable. The last option is to replace your air conditioner with a unit with a greater cooling capacity. Obviously this is the most expensive option. It is also the reason why when choosing an air conditioner in the first place, getting the correct capacity is so important. Professionals will perform a heat load calculation to work out the capacity of cooling required. As you can see, getting this right is very important to avoid these sorts of situations from occurring in the first place..1. can you put an air conditioner in a room within a room?No because you will not be able to use the other room, nor the AC will work efficiently,and the performance of your AC will gradually reduce in a short span of time, due to lack of fresh air flow which the other half of your needs to discharge th heat collected from AC room. Butter get raid of your window type, go in for split AC.2. why does my air conditioner make my room smell like a locker room?Usually your air conditioner has a filter. Take the filter out and soak it in a solution (50/50) 4 cups vinegar /4 cups water, then throw a little baking soda (1/4 cup) Soak for 3-4 hours, let it dry in the sun. This should take the moldly, mildew smell out. If it does not , you may need to buy a new filter. Good luck!3. I have to install an air conditioner but the outlet has a round hole and 2 horizontal slots underneath?The more correct way is to find an outlet that fits your a/c. Are you trying to hook a 110 to a 220 outlet? Even so you can change the outlet to match your power cord. Shut off the breaker that feeds this outlet and swap it out. If going from 220 to 110, just cap off the extra 110 feed wire and fold it up in the box. Use the remaining wires on the new outlet4. Dorms and cooling question, Evaporative (swamp) or air conditioner?You definitely need an air conditioner because, like you said, we do not have very many humid days. I have had friends buy swamp coolers because they are trying to save a buck and they end up having to buy an a/c.5. Air conditioner btu rating needed for 1500 sq ft home-need opinions?to top length an AC equipment call a qualified HVAC contractor and characteristic them carry out a warmth/COOLING analysis. which will furnish the coolest length required. employing sq. pictures on my own is not the magnificent thank you to length.

Are there any girls/women here that like to get dirty?yes..I love power tools..I used to work on cars (but can not now due to allergies). But I still like wood working...I wired 6 concrete Asian lanterns for light. (and then a whole bunch of people tried to copy me. ...hahahaha. ..did not work. ) I paint the inside of my house. I do plumbing and 'light' wiring. (changing light fixtures, thermostats, etc) I have my own power washer...(I live in a brick house and it needs cleaning all the time. ..it's white. .).3. Girls/Women only: What type of guy would you rather date?Do not compare yourself to the otehr guys that a girl dates. I personally have dated and loved all three of these types of guys. Just think about the fact that you two were not meant to be, and that is that. Otherwise you will be dwelling on it and NO girl finds that attractive4. poll :girls and women do you wear makeup everyday to work, school, college classes?Yes I do as I love makeup! I wear MAC primer and foundation and avon usually for mascara and eyeliners etc. The only time I dont is in the day when on holiday or when im swimming!5. bra question for other girls/women!?I think theres a brand that came out with halves in bra sizes like B 38 1/2 you know? They are around someone try thoses6. Who sells cheap swimwear for girls / women? Cute bikinis, but cheap?Wet seal, wal-mart, and delias7. Girls...women..females. I need advice. READ IT ALL.? HELP?First of what I read from you is a lot of red flags in your sentences. The biggest problem about yourself is not your weight or something alike. It's your negative thinking in each sentence. Think how you look from a side when you are always thinking about yourself. Your body must be collapsed, you do not look self-confident about yourself, you feel afraid because you are afraid what each woman may think of you at the meeting and etc. STOP! First what you need to change is your thoughts. You need to learn think possitively. And it's no joke. You may think that it's a joke, but it's not. It's a really hard task for you and you even do not understand it yet. I am sure that even know you are trying to think negatively "Oh, what is she talking about? How can I look nice, if I am not?!" This is a really hard task for you if you want to find a girlfriend and have a serious relationship - try to catch each of your negative thought and fastly change it to positive! It's not a one day task. You do not need any advice about dating. When you learn how to think positively, your body will talk itself "Hey, here I am , I am self confidence and happy man. I am looking good for myself, also I am very interesting person. So if you want to know me better, let's talk!" Women like self-confident men. And if it would be true that heavy men can hardly find a real love, they all would be singles! :) But they are not. Remember, women like men, who are self-confident and happy for who they are and how they look (even if they are made a mistake choosing a wrong shoes or speech) :).8. Are you more physically attracted to young-looking girls/women or more mature-looking girls/women?My standards are the same. If she looks good & has a big butt she's ok with me9. Girls/Women What Guy would you rather have?10?Really either one as long as they had good personalitys
