Introducing The Perfect Girl

Updated on September 12, 2011

Just my opinion . . .

but this girl, whomever she is, would easily-qualify for being my choice for The Perfect Girl in the United States and here are my reasons for thinking this . . .

This girl is . . .in all probability,

Quiet, to the point of almost being silent. She seldom has to raise her voice in public or private because both men and women love to do her bidding--which is always an easy task such as helping her to choose which magazine to read; what movie to attend or what restaurant to visit with her date for dinner. She is one of a kind. But doesn't flaunt this fact toward anyone.

Humble, to a fault. Never steps up to take the honors, but lends the spotlight to her friends. This is what I assume she would do. Looks are not sometimes deceiving in her case. I can accurately judge this woman by her facial features. See her eyes? Soft and sensitive. Never concealing the truth from anyone--giving new meaning to the word: trust. Old folks used to say, "they don't make 'em like her anymore," and those old timers were so wise in that saying. For they knew quality when they viewed it.

Truthful, is her most-prominent trait. If this girl, we will call her, "Terrie," for I don't know her real name and probably never will, tells you on a sunny day that it is going to rain, fetch your umbrella. Terrie doesn't mince her words or deal in chit chat. To her, an insincere person is someone to be shunned. Terrie loves America and what America stands for--truth, liberty, justice and Democracy.

Mindful, of her roots, probably reaching back to Kansas. Wichita, to be exact. I don't know if Wichita is her hometown, but she looks like a Kansas girl with her wrinkle-free forehead, unobtrusive cheek bones and warm smile. Kansas people exhibit these quality features. Look closely at Dorothy (Judy Garland), the next time you watch The Wizard of Oz, and you will not see any wrinkles in her forehead or obtrusive cheek bones in her angelic face. Terrie has not and never will lost sight of the fact that she is not any better than anyone she meets. She also is mindful that she knows all too well what it feels like to be penniless, hungry and owning just the dress on her back. Even with the alleged fame and fortune her face has brought her, she remains mindful of the lowly people who meet her many times as she goes to work.

Sincerity, best-describes her love for those around her--at work or at home. No sacrifice for her friends and sometimes a stranger, is too much for Terri. Money? It means nothing to Terri. She had rather feel good about herself by giving her money to deserving people than to be accused of hording her riches on earth.

Giving, is another easy way to describe Terrie. She has turned down many prestigious awards over the span of her successful career that has taken her into successful movies, television shows and even commercials. She doesn't mind the work if it's legitimate. The reason that Terrie turned down those awards, one being an Oscar, was because she felt that she was undeserving of the award, and let someone else win. Terrie made it her goal to talk to the board of directors of the Oscars and confess her true feelings about her less-than-professional performance in some movie and made sure that her co-star would get the nomination. Terrie has been this way since childhood. "what a special girl," said her mother, Martha, when asked one time by a reporter from a movie magazine how would (Martha) describe Terrie. Upon reading the article, Terri blushed and down-played the sincere quotes by her mother. That is Terrie's style. Keep yourself humble, grateful and the universe is yours.

Who knows, except from The Creator, where special girls like Terrie come from? It is a solidified agreement among everyone she has met that there needs to be many more like Terrie in our span of life as we know it.

I used the word, perfect, in my headline, but you and I both know that there is no such thing as a perfect mortal. Not past, present, or future. It was never intended for weak, fragile, dependent human beings to achieve perfection in this stage of life.

Like being blessed to one day, meet Terri, I was just grasping for just the right word to introduce her in my headline.

      Neil, thank YOU kindly, my friend. Kinda. "She" lives somewhere in my jagged and fragmented imagination and she only comes out on a certain June night when the moon is full and honeysuckle is gently teasing the breezes. Oh well. Long wait until summer 2012. Thanks for the comment and visit.

      Hello, wanzulfikri, you will. It WILL require patience, endurance and a willingness to change 'you,' in some ways, to me copasetic with your soulmate. Just wanting to encourage you and urge you to not give up. Thanks for the comment. KENNETH

      'Perfect' is really subjective and what I can see that your perception of a perfect girl is quite the same as mine. I hope I can find a girl with the values you mentioned in this hub.

      Chin chin, I would have described her physical beauty, but that might have offended many women who are feminists, and I wouldn't want that on my conscience. Oh yeah, Terrie Shannon, is her "real name," and as for physical beauty, she has never visited a gym to workout. She doesn't know what the term 'diet' means...she was born with a perfect body and weight. What do you expect from a PERFECT girl, lol?

      I think I have bits and pieces of those qualities you have described but I can never pass as the perfect girl you have described. It's interesting that you never mentioned about physical beauty. Well enough. True beauty is indeed the beauty from within.

      Hi, Teri! Thank YOU, SINCERELY, for this comment. I appreciate YOUR input, comment and thoughts that you have on ANY and all of my materials. Believe me, I need a lot of help. And I appreciate YOU helping me with any tips, advice or suggestions. I have a pretty thick skin. Thanks again, Terri.

      Hi Kenneth, I absolutely loved this hub! The list you have written, it would be so nice if most people exhibited those qualities.

      I also think it's cool that this is the first hub of yours I read, and you used the name "Terri" :)

      Astra Nomik, you are right. I am a quiet person. I once talked a lot. People seemingly didn't want or appreciate my opinions and simply froze me out of their conversations with other people are simply ignored me. It's lovely, peaceful, and safe inside my "Cave of Obscurity." This approach to life works GREAT for me.

      I like this hub, a woman who is mindful of her roots and giving and sincere. They are good qualities, Kenneth. This is a nice list of qualities. Truthful is also important. But Quiet is one thing which bugs me. I was always a quiet kid, and I hate that thing about myself. Quiet people have lots of things to say too, but just need the pluck up the courage to do it. I resolved not to be quiet any more, if I could help it. Heh.

      Some people look at this word and sense a word behind it..."demure". I can see where Cassy is coming from with her statement. Still, a person with aspirations is a person who knows what he wants, and that is a lot better than the wishy-washy person who can't quite decide.

      nikitha p . . .THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your warm comment. That made my day. Have a peaceful day and let me hear from you often.

      Hey, cheekygirl . . .I agree. When guys like me, who apprecite certain women beyond a reasonable level, or height, it tends to put you under a microscope, as it were, and takes a bit of your peace away trying to be that perfect girl. Maybe I will write a hub next week about the benefits of being an average guy, and girl. Thanks.

      reeny45, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your comment on this literary exercise that has turned into a series with "this" girl in photo named The Perfect Girl. By looking at your photo, it's a sure bet that your behavior is top-notch and needs NO adjusting. Thanks again.

      A nice homage to someone great and also a good wishlist for what an ideal person's qualities ought to be. Finding the "perfect" person is so specific and subjective. We would all want to add some extra qualities to that magical ideal person. The perfect girl would be smart and strong minded, able to deal with most situations, and make key decisions.

      I would not want that ideal person to be so humble as to be totally walk-on as can often happen to the humble female. And I love the photo, Keira Knightley is sort of "everywoman" material. :)

      Loved this. Great insight! I'd better ramp up my behavior a bit, I see, in order to be sort of close to perfect. (Well, at least I'll shoot for 35%) LOL! Thank you!

      Dear Nellieanna, you are right again. I am guilty, or used to be guilty, of doing just that--placing females high above reality. That reason may be why I was NOT the Don Juan I dreamed of being. Thanks, dear friend.

      It's not an either/or choice, necessarily. No reason a woman can't be good looking, real & approachable, too. And if she is, she will admire a man with clear and realistic vision, including realities about her! A real woman detests being idealized and put on a pedestal. It's a horrible place to be imprisoned! :-)

      hey, daskittlez69 . . .thank you so much for the comment. She is rather attractive, okay, let's be real, honest men here..SHE IS A RAVISHING CREATURE who I will never meet. You are welcome for this hub. I do mean that.

      In the looks department, I would have to say Keira Knightley is close to perfect. Thanks for the hub!

      Kenneth Avery 6 years ago from Hamilton, Alabama

      DEAR NELLIEANNA . . .you are so THOUGHTFUL, CARING and NICE to say these things about this hub, and you are absolutely right. Terrie has not met with 3 a.m. feedings, teething, broken hearts, puppy loves, and lost teenage sweethearts, but you have given me something to think about: Maybe in the future, Terrie can make another visit with us and tell us what it is like to be MARRIED to a common man. This is a doable idea. Thanks so much. For everthing. And every nice thing you have ever said about my work. Bless you.

      Smiling here. . . .

      Well it's a beautiful and idealistic sketch of a near-perfect girl, for sure, - - or of any human being, for that matter, if a little Utopian! She seems a bit substance-less, but, then, she is only a girl, not a full-fledged grown woman who's changed dirty diapers and such things as may furrow a brow now and then. We'll watch to see who she'll be when she grows up.

      Actually - it's an ideal of an admirable spirit to which all humans can aspire, and can be counted if and when it's genuine and sustainable. The real test of one's mettle is in how gracefully we handle adversity more than how we handle fame, though.

      Remember you said Terrie is truthful, so along the line, she may reveal that she has some pet peeves and an occasional uncharitable thought or two, along with her lovely and admirable characteristics.

      It's a pleasant fantasy and your categories of quietness, humility, truthfulness, awareness, sincerity, and generosity ring true & are all virtues to which we all can aspire!

      You are a dear person and I love your style and spontaneity, Kenneth. I enjoyed this well-constructed example! Keep giving us your treasures!

      Dear Sueswan, thank YOU, and this is all that was: My imagination at work. Actually a self-examination to see what I could do without any planning and just grab it from thin air. Thanks for YOUR comments, follow, and all of your encouragment. I shall NOT forget YOU.
