Really? So you think frizzy hair is just as appealing and attractive as smooth hair?

@djjd62,
Red hair is beautiful. So are freckles. So is curly hair.

No, but the huge amount of female attention to their hair
has been too exagerated by them, to an unreasonable degree.

I have always just combed my hair straight back
and then it never enters my mind.

Yes, Joyce told me that she was on a bridge
at the 1964 NY World's Fair, and her glasses fell off the bridge
n were broken, but she was very happy about getting contacts
to replace them.

came up to me and said, 'Why aren't you wearing your glasses?'
And I said, 'I got contacts,' to which he replied, 'that's a shame - you looked better with glasses.'
I empathize with that.
Joyce's glasses were part of the beauty, the image,
that I 'd come to love.

@OmSigDAVID,
Hey bubba, she's talking about your date's hair ... lol

I never cared about looks - for me it's all personality and smarts. If he's funny, smart, spontaneous, accepting, kind, (and solvent!!) etc, I'm in, baby! The looks issue is waaaaaaay down at the bottom.

@dyslexia,
Dys, the cops are fishing for leads, right? And, calling a parent's child beautiful isn't going to harm your chances of them helping you out with that.

@dyslexia,
So.... they could easily, I guess, drop the "she's pretty" and probably do in the real world. Any cops on A2K?

@littlek,
Or, they could have left the "pretty" in, which would mean something to the parents, and have left out the boyfriend part.

I'm not so sure women are all so different than men on this, though the ones we hear about are - I just don't completely buy it, as I think men can vary on how much star power, as they take it, that they want to spend years with.
I've been crazymad for a couple of guys.... well, besides the ones I did love. One took two days for me to go from wild woman (I still remember his name and it has been near forty years) to who is this idiot. Another took longer, since he was no idiot, au contraire. The good news for guys about that is that he was not quite bald, and that only made him more attractive, focus on the eyes.

Anyway, Dys, I don't think you are naive.

You can't hold yourself as a standard. Besides, I have heard guys ridicule women for not fixing their hair nicely.

@OmSigDAVID,
You're implying that you and she were both 13 in 1964.

I remember boyfriend remarking once about my messy hair. Back then it was quite curly (time has passed and wavy is a sign of life). That irritated me since I set my hair in curlers something like three times a week back then to tame it and those were hard to sleep on. He was wrong for me and I for him anyway, but neither of us were alert enough to get fully get that - we somewhat did, but were fond. Good guy. He asked me to marry him a few New Years in a row and then moved on, though we talked since re catching up. He married a nurse in Illinois. I don't know how it worked out, but hoping well.

Geez, this may have been the start of my recalcitrant ways. Hair..

Its unmasculine to do that.

That is incorrect.
I did not imply that.
Her point was that she 'd worn her framed glasses
for much longer than that and she was weary of using them.
She was elated at getting contacts after her older ones had broken.

@OmSigDAVID,
What do you mean that is "unmasculine" to ridicule women for not fixing their hair nicely? Men always have a lot to say about how women dress, fix their hair or wear or don't wear make-up. Do you ever talk to other men? You said you have had girlfriends. Haven't they complained about the other men who have been in their lives?

David is correct if he is saying that masculine men dont ridicule their women. He is wrong if his is saying that masculine men dont make their preferences known and expect their women to mold to them to a certain degree. This of course pisses the feminists off to know end, as they have it that women are in charge of their own self and men should either be supportive or stay quiet, but never direct.
