Over the last few weeks I’ve been trying to catalog some of the more interesting encounters and lessons I’ve learned from all of the women I have interacted with. Here are a few:
1) Just say no to Tats–
Seriously, I have yet to meet a single woman who looks better with a tattoo than without. It doesn’t matter how beautiful the inking is, or the tracing, or whatever. Ladies, they are not an improvement. Female skins can be a beautiful thing; don’t ruin it with ink. [Update: Elspeth helpfully supplied a link which indicates that the tramp stamp myth is probably correct.]
2) Time is not on your side-
Several days ago I listened to several attractive, professional ladies in their late twenties talk about how they wanted to wait to have kids. They were telling themselves that they had plenty of time to have children. At least one was married, maybe more than one of them. But they were convinced that time was on their side. Sadly, they are quite mistaken. Age impacts female fertility far more than female fertility.
The difference between fertility rates in the early twenties and the late twenties is minor, but once you get into the thirties women start to face a serious risk of fertility problems. While it may not end up being those women specifically, many women like them who put their careers ahead a family will eventually find out to their dismay that they chose poorly.
3) Smiling makes a difference-
There is something about a woman’s smile that can light up her face. Even a plain face can be transformed with a simple smile ladies. So please, smile more often. Frowns don’t improve your looks any, and neither does disgust or that arrogant aloofness which some women keep about them at all times.
4) Don’t Curse-
Profanity has its place, but one of them is not the mouth of a women in everyday conversation. I can’t even begin to explain how much of a turn-off it is to hear a pretty girl spout a mouthful of profanity with every breath. Not only is it not feminine, but it reduces your apparent intelligence as well. After all, how smart can you be if your vocabulary mostly consists of four letter words?
Ugh. Just ugh. This is even worse than tattoos. Not only does smoking not look good, but it smells awful, and does horrific things to your teeth and breath. Just don’t. Smoking knocks a women down several pegs of attractiveness, easily.
6) Long hair and bangs-
Yes please. Long, healthy hair has a beauty all of its own. The way it sways and moves about a woman’s face and head… well, if done right it can be downright enchanting. Some women can pull off short hair, but they always look better when it is longer. And bangs can kick that even higher. I know it is a lot of work, but we men appreciate it ladies. If you are married, ask your husband his preference and work towards it. Trust me, he will appreciate it. Don’t believe me? Zooey Deschanel says otherwise:
That is all for now. I’m trying to choose what to work on next, I have several ideas but can’t decide.
