I'm wondering if we're all doomed, in part, because there are apparently people out there that think: 1) Their criticisms directed toward strangers are valued in any way by the recipients. 2) It's important to waste life enough to criticize someone like that.

Sure, they do! Of course, it all depends on the shape of their frames... ;)

I just bought a pair last month. :D

They make sense because a women's waist is typically above her belly button, while with men a thin waist normally falls below the belly button.

I wish the guy would just "get a life."

Hasn't he got something better to do?

... especially after pregnancy (it's also called the "Empire Waist"). You can tell because after childbirth is when women usually start wearing "Mom Jeans". But when you see an old man with his belt above his waist, it means that his belly is too fat to wear trousers any other way. Women's waistlines -- just like their hemlines and necklines -- rise and fall with the prevailing fashions, the season, and their moods.

I really hope that the man who wrote those comments is single and stays that way, at least until he learns to act like a dedent human being. Someone like that isn't suitable for a relationship.

Ah, so that's why I'm single! But wait, I make the first move often, too. Is there also a rule that says not to answer to passes made by women with glasses? :lol:

Eh, I've only ever worn high waist jeans; low waist ones are just too uncomfortable to use. My sister, on the other hand, thinks exactly the opposite. It's not always about the fashion; sometimes it's about what feels better.

The dude who wrote those comments should feel ashamed of himself if he isn't feeling so already. :lol:

Are you being ass backward on purpose? I don't get it.

The quote is "men don't make passes at girls who wear glasses".

It was coined by Dorothy Parker, and not by Emily Post.

When she made the quip back in the Forties or Fifties she was addressing women- who were desperate to attract husbands. Not men.

And youre misquoting it .

The word "real" wasn't there. She wasn't instructing men on how to be gentlemen. Etiguette had nothing to do with it. She was instructing other women how to be hawt. Her point was that wearing glasses made females look plain, so hey should get contacts, or whatever.

I don't particularly agree with the statement. Sarah Palin and Tina Fey both wear glasses, and both look hot to me. But I grew up in later era when, I suppose, lady's glasses look more stylish than they once did.

But the point is ...approaching ladies may, or may not, be "gentlemanly" in particular circumstances. But it doesn't matter if the lady is wearing glasses or not.

Hurray for Dorothy Parker. She always had something to say and said it well.

And it's: men seldom make passes....

When she was alive, there were no contact lenses. We had to choose between being able to see and having a boyfriend. :D
