  • ((( *___* )))

    half these women are ugly. its sad that skin color still seems to be the most desirable trait in women in india, they seem to disregard facial features or anything else important completely. there are so many dark skinned women who are much hotter than some of these chicks. some of these girls are legitimately ugly, like seriously i could find better looking ones on the street.
