I guess I never realized how many men read this blog until I started getting emails from them. (Turns out they're just as confused about relationships as us!)
The email below was so sincere, I just had to post it. (Don't worry... Anonymous told me I could.)
Poor little Anonymous. (Would be a trip if his name were Harry, no?)
Ladies, take a gander at his question and comment with your thoughts. He'll be a better (groomed) man for it.
I have a question that I would be interested in your (and your reader's) opinion.
How do girls feel about guys who shave their chest and back? I am a very hairy guy and ashamed of it so I spend countless hours shaving my chest and back. Is that a turn off to girls? I figure a girl would rather be with a smooth skinned guy than Chewbacca. Is my assumption incorrect? I definitely don't have a models body to backup the baby smooth skin so does it make a difference if you're a fat guy who shaves his chest and back? I assume it is obvious to the girl that I shave so I'm not sure if it really matters in the end.
How about guys that give themselves "special haircuts." (Always a Bridesmaid sidenote: I'm assuming he's referring to his nether regions here?) I'm not talking Mr. Clean style haircuts, just some general house keeping to keep things in order...good idea? bad?
Feel free to post these questions and their answers on your blog.
Personally, I say ix-nay on the back air-hay (though I would recommend waxing over shaving). But I don't mind a little bit of chest hair. (As long as it's not so long you could put rasta beads on it.) The one thing that does gross me out is if there is a small tuft of hair peeking out from a guy's undershirt or t-shirt near his neck. GROSS.
So what do you think, ladies (and Brissy)? Help a brother out!
