As I went to the bank this morning I saw a young woman with very closely cropped red hair dressed in extremely neat and very modern looking clothes… almost a sort of euro-space age pants suit… hop into her tiny black hybrid car and drive away. She was very short, and while well-put together wasn’t a bit the typical underfed gazelle like supermodel we have continually foisted off on us as our “standard” of beauty. To me she looked… mysterious.
And that got me thinking.
There are two looks on women that most guys find the most appealing. Wait. There are three. The first is all dolled up, dressed to the nines, three hour make-up, knockout perfume, looks that kill. Otherwise known as the Bar Huntress look. Second is warm and fuzzy, literally just rolled out of bed, hair everywhere, no make-up, dressed in a T-shirt. This is the Real Woman, or I Can See Your Nipples look.
The third and last look is anything in between the first two.
Seriously, I appreciate all the effort you ladies go to in order to look nice, but I don’t understand it. The lack of understanding is however, a part of the charm. For instance: my wife can spend several consecutive days picking out a pair of shoes. Fit, while a consideration, is less important than appearance. I, on the other hand, don’t really care if she ever wears shoes again. (I’m not a fetishist, but she does have very cute feet.) So why the attention? I don’t know. But that makes her mysterious to me. And a mystery is interesting, and interesting keeps my attention. (Although I find most everything Lena does endlessly fascinating… just sayin’.)
The Monday Question
So here’s the question, for girls, why do you do it? Lena says that girls know guys are too stupid to pay attention and that most primping is done for other girls, but still… why? And guys, While I’m curious to know why you think they do it, I am even more curious about what it means to you. Let us know what you think!
