Let me applaud you on a wonderfully well written post, “What A Girl Wants”.
I’ll give credit where credit is due. After all, it was you who suggested (forced) me to use MP featured products like Chicken Poop, The Body Shop Clay Mask, and Clinique. I have since learned to start taking your opinions (orders) seriously. However, before I pop open a bottle of champagne to celebrate your new found career as a contributor for MP, there are a few things I must address… here’s my rebuttal:
#5 – Hair Obsession
Girlfriend: I’m not sure if this is a common behavior amongst you males, but my boyfriend is super attentive (obsessed) when it comes to his full head of hair. He spends more time prepping his hair than I do putting on makeup.
Boyfriend: Nope, this is not a common behavior of males, but rather a common behavior of a Grooming Enthusiast! You see, my obsession with my hair is similar to your addiction for trying on shoes and purses. To me, my hair defines who I am: unique, creative and SEXYYYY!!!! [Note from the Editor – this post may contain some subjective opinions. Lol.]
#4 – Rough Skin
Girlfriend: As weird as this might seem to many reading this, we females definitely appreciate a sense of soft touch. Sure a “Manly Man” is defined by the roughness of his skin and the size of his pecs (did I write that out loud). For some reason when I tell my boyfriend about the idea of Vaseline, he seems to always smirk about it. It must be some sick inside joke between him and his friends.
Boyfriend: First of all, personally I may also prefer a soft touch. But I must also maintain my rugged image. Grrrr!!! Jokes aside, us guys are not as attentive as the ladies. We simply forget. And having rough hands as result, isn’t the worst thing as a man (not necessarily as a grooming man, but as a man!). And due to our genetic makeup, we naturally spend more time thinking about sex than we do about having a soft skin. This leads me to the point about why I always crack up when you suggest that I try Vaseline. I will share the joke with you when the time is right.
#3 – Smile
Boyfriend: What can I say? This one is EASY… I’d smile everyday if I could stare at you all day long… wink wink wink!!!
#2 – BO, yuck!
Boyfriend: I am going to side with you on this one. I know. I can’t believe I just said that! But, You completely read my mind when you wrote: “…a little spray can go a long way; less is more, don’t over indulge (cologne should be a pleasant whisper, not a downpour!)”. For that, I can proudly call you my GIRLFRIEND!
#1 – Facial Hair
Boyfriend: I am going to be honest here and confess the main reason why I only shave once a week… It hurts!
Like you, I also appreciate the 2 – 3 day post-shave stubble stage. The rigid feel and edgy look definitely brings out the Manly Man in me. But even Manly Men suffer from razor burn and sensitive skin. Shaving too often causes irritation on my skin. Products like, Jack Black Lube and FlexBall will help, but it still hurts sometimes…
Well, there you go girlfriend.
