You call that a rejection? That was nothing. To me that's like a woman telling that me "my hair is black." No big deal.

When a guy tells you something like "please raise up", then you'd get more sympathy from the menfolk. Smile

I just thought about that...

"I'm engaged" is hardly a blow to someone's ego... I've seen non-spoken FACIAL EXPRESSIONS that are more devastating... that look that says "if you even come within 500 feet of me, I will throw a bag full of cat pee at you"... THAT'S an ego-bruiser... LOL...

Intersting thread the last few guys I have dated locally I met when I was a hot MESS let me repeat MESS. One guy I was thinking dude my hair is all over my head I have on my scrubs and I have been up over 24 hours get out of my face, he continued the song and dance......we are still hanging out. He liked the improved version. The other one caught me in the hardware/tool store hair in ponytail, stained jeans, t-shirt, I was rushing to picking up a part. The only good thing about meeting guys when you are mess is he has seen you at your worst. LOL!!

Do you ladies have any idea how attractive some of you are when you are totally dressed down? What you may perceive as "looking a mess", we may perceive as you looking and being comfortable.

I don't know PM, she said her hair was all over her head and that she had not slept for a full 24 hours. Prissy has a head fulla thick, long hair...I just can not imagine any sane dude looking at a tumble weed in scrubs who hasn't slept in a full day and going "Damn baby! Can I get ur paperwork?" Laughing

I thought men were visual creatures.[/b][/color]

I'd say that I am... in MsPris' case, what the guy found attractive differed from what she probably thought he'd find attractive (Bishop started a thread along those lines). Or, it could be a case where he's thinking "If she's this cute NOW, think of how she'll look when she's rested and stuff..." Or, maybe there was something about Pris that shined through the haggard exterior (like a pretty smile or something).

As for the hardware/tool store encounter, how *I* would look at it is that I'm not seeing someone that's in a ponytail, and stained jeans, buying parts. *I'M* seeing someone that's not afraid to get her hands dirty, which could be compatible for a guy that's also shopping in a hardware store.

And since this thread is about striking while the iron's hot, maybe he felt that if he didn't strike now, who knows when the opportunity would come up again?

There's a huge difference between dressed down and lookin' genuinely to' up...but there's a segment of the male population who love that look. Laughing

[color=darkred]A "just worked out or cleaned the yard hot mess" is good.

A "just got off work and wrestled my kids into the car and did groceries on the way home and now I'm unloading the car still yelling at the kids hot mess" can be alright too.

A "clean but didn't feel like it today so I pulled my hair back and threw on some sweats and a ripped or cut up top hot mess" can even be sexy.

But a "just rolled out of bed didn't do shit to my face or hair and I'm still wearing the clothes I slept in hot mess" is simply toe-da-fuck-up. And if you're smelling like you look, I'll let you know it.[/color]

...and quite a few of us know that difference...

...it's not like we're thinking "Aw man, she just finished a 16-hour shift of bobbing for raw sewage, and she looks like she just sparred with Mike Tyson... let me go holla at her..."

LOL...

I may have encountered a scenario like this.

On friday I met this female while Dun was here. I'd be curious of his perspective but I thought she was pretty much feeling the kid. Before I invited her to our table I met her at another table and she was all giddy so I was like, "I got to take a stab at this".

Eventurally she comes over and she talks. Cool "party girl" type but ah, I don't know about anythign else.

So then as she was about to leave she gives me her number (I didnt ask). She wanted to come to my party the next day but I already had a full house. I haven't called her yet but I figure I'll do that tomorrow and see if she wants to meet for drinks.

Point being sometimes you do have to strike while the iron is hot but sometimes you can't be too eager. This female I could tell was USED to cats approaching her and being the center of attention.

Laughing Okay, here's a perfect example of what I'm talking about, something that happened to me last summer:

I ran out Saturday morning just to pick up my dry cleaning and stop by the credit union...got in my car and saw I was on E. So I had to stop at the gas station. I had on a t-shirt I got my freshman year in college Laughing, a wrinkled ass khaki skort, some old beat up Nike flip-flops that used to be white & silver, now they're all gray Laughing, and my head was still wrapped up in my black silk scarf. So in other words, I was TO' DOWN, you hear me?! Laughing To make matters worse, I had to go in to pay for my gas 'cuz I didn't have the right wallet on me with my debit/credit cards. This guy saw me when I walked in and said, "You are the perfect woman JUST LIKE YOU ARE. You are dark-skinned and just [i]natural[/i]. Your skin is so pretty. I just KNOW you fine if you dressed up." Laughing Then he says, "Are you married?" I told him I was, he says, "That figures. All the good ones iz GONE." I'm just lookin' at him like... Confused He carries on like this the whole time we're in line, topping it off by saying, "Why don't women like brothas like me? I love da Lawd, got a good job, ain't livin' wit' my mama, none of dat!" I raised my eyebrow at the "i love da lawd" line 'cuz that fool had a can of Colt 45 - and it wasn't even 11 in the morning yet. Laughing

Now...would anybody here try to talk to me and I'm lookin' like I described above? I doubt it very seriously - but that happens quite a bit. Usually it's not that bad because I don't make a habit of leaving my house with a scarf on my head Laughing, but close enough. The one day you just throw something on to run a quick errand, everybody & their daddy is tryna holla. Laughing
