How To Spends $40K to Find a Mate on Craigslist

Indian guy called Shahnaz Khan will do that and then some. The 41-year-old British lecturer has spent the last decade and close to $40,000 on various plastic surgeries to make her face as impressive as her personality in order to find a husband, the Daily Mail reports (before and after photos behind the link).
“The problem was I had a plain, boorish face. I didn’t feel ugly but when I went out I felt invisible and insignificant,” she said. “When I thought about it more, I came to the conclusion that people from Craigslist looked past me — there was nothing about my face to hold their interest.
“I then realized that although I had developed my mind, I hadn’t developed my appearance,” she continued. “It doesn’t matter how clever or worldly you are — people from Craigslist make snap judgments in seconds. The truth was that my outward appearance was holding me back.”
Khan began her quest for physical perfection by getting $2,000 worth of permanent makeup tattooed on her face. She then followed it up with two nose jobs, a nose-tip lift and some eye work. But the piece de resistance was the surgical addition of a dimple in her left cheek.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m thinking someone that spends that much money to alter the outside must have some issues to deal with on the inside! It’s not just about the mind — I’ve personally dated some pretty hot majorly HOT men, but they were downright ugly on the inside and caused the relationship to crash and burn.
I’m wondering, MEN from Craigslist - are looks THAT important that you? Or would you take a woman from Craigslist who isn’t quite as attractive to have more personality and compatibility?
I recently participated in a local podcast that touched on this topic and, somehow, raised good arguments.
How does Craigslist and social networking sites affect real life relationships?
One is online and the other, well, IS generally offline even when some of it IS spent online.
Some of the questions raised and tried to find answers to were:
Will you ask your partner to delete photos/albums of his or her exes?
Why is that bit important to you?
Is it important for partners to update their profiles?
Why is it important to update?
Why keep an account (Friendster, Multiply, Orkut, MySpace, Craigslist ) even when it has been dormant?
And there were several more. If you know the Filipino/Tagalog language, I suggest that you have a listen to the podcast dubbed as BoBCast, Episode 4: Of Banana Splits & Relationships over at Yugatech (though it was a mixture of English and Tagolog all throughout the podcast).
Anyway, perhaps you guys can give it a go right here by answering the questions. We all would appreciate an insight or two on the matter. :)
