Are Diamonds Really a Girl’s Best Friend?

Post 558

Men grow cold as girls grow old. We lose our charms in the end, but square cut or pear shape, these rocks don’t lose their shape. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Once sang Marilyn Monroe. What she was saying is that women lose all appeal the older they get, therefore men become uninterested, but women shouldn’t worry because diamonds cure what ails you in this situation. Depression and loneliness, probably. Material goods. Things like that. Just a tad shallow and insulting, isn’t it? With a sprinkle of condescension. It’s bullshit, though, because women never lose their appeal – they are eternally gorgeous. Men, on the other hand. Jesus, I never had any appeal to start with. Sniff, whimper. Excuse me, I need a tissue…

It gets worse, though. ‘I prefer a man who lives and gives expensive jewels,’ Monroe continued. ‘A kiss may be grand… but it won’t pay the rental on your humble flat or help you at the automat.’ Oh, Miss Monroe, what are you going on about? I hardly know where to begin with all that. I mean, for a start, what the hell is an automat?

God only knows what she was going on about when she went on to sing ‘if little pets get big baguettes.’

Regardless, this idea has persisted. That women love diamonds. And that’s a worry for someone like me who would never be able to afford to buy a woman one. I mean, what’s she gonna think when all her friends are getting fancy stuff and she’s stuck with a 59p card and a day trip to Skegness? I don’t want to make her miserable. I mean, have you been to Skegness?

Diamonds are often associated with commitment, longevity and purity. A symbol of love yet also the fragility of life. Their perfection aspirational to the perfection we seek in the relationships we have with those we love.

Monroe may have thought they were a girl’s best friend, but I like to think women aren’t that shallow. They sure appreciate a nice diamond but I think most are more interested in the actual guy giving them the diamond. Surely love transcends material goods, right? Considering how hideous I look, I sure hope so…

So no, I don’t think diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but what do you think, readers?
