I like glasses. If there's a girl behind them as well, that's a plus! :lol:

I've got a thing for girls in glasses. Makes them look intelligent - I'm no brainbox, but dumb girls are a turn off. It might also be the 'secretary taking them off and letting their hair down' fantasy as well.

What ever seems like a disadvantage for a man - sign of weakness or looking awkward and geeky - I find incredibly attractive in a woman. I suppose it's all down to gender roles.

I don't think it's odd at all...a cute girl who wears glasses, is still a cute girl IMO; I don't find glasses a turn-off at all, in fact they're a turn-on in a geeky/intellectual-fetish sorta way :lol:

Not at all, I find glasses on girls rather appealing myself.

It's not odd at all, actually it's quite common. And the stereotypes that are associated with glasses might be appealing to men who feel like they can identify with such stereotypes.

See that damned Cosmo mag...and the media in general are pushing LASIK. It's a thing of the future and a BIG moneymaker. Magazines, fashion, the media...the all stick together and scratch each other's back in ther effort to rake in the dough! The same thing with cosmetic dentistry. Some dentist in France paid a woping sum to advertise in a woman's magazine. He's agonna get rich!
People's vanity and addictions will make you rich because they are undying...diet doctors, skin doctors, plastic surgeons, eye surgeons, etc... you name it! Even me, I too lined the pockets of a diet doctor. He ran a rinky-dinky office out of Jersey City but lived in a mansion!! I accidently (on purpose) found his home address lying on a table. So, I took a drive. I actually cried when I compared his dwelling to my little mud hut. I never went back and lost the fat on my own but strictly by increased activity and exercise...not the food. My diet changed VERY little. Only the portions are "slighty" reduced. I REFUSE to make some practitioner rich because of my own vanity...it's wrong in every way!

personally have no preference or think diffeently between women with or without classes, contacts, or lasik. I say if you have the money to spend to get lasik done, its your choice not mine, so i have no reason to worry about it.

I don't think it's weird, I've been attracted to girls with glasses in the past. I even wear glasses myself.

About this four-eyes equates to smarts thing. I think the association people have concerning glasses and intellectualism is a bit odd and pretty flawed. There's some obscure evidence supporting the connection between myopia and high IQ / higher education, but there are plenty of dull bespectacled people out there, just as there are plenty of cerebral types with perfect vision.

But anyway, I'll still admit I'm a sucker for guys in glasses. Plus points if they're thicker than mine. :nerdy:

If someone can have a liking for piercings, tattoos or certain accessories, the why not specs?
... A hearing aid fetish - Now that would be strange. :P

Dumb people don't wear glasses not because their eyes are in some way superior, but because the badly-sighted ones don't acknowledge their problem as letters and words have always seemed blurry and confusing to them.

Is there actually? It'd be interesting if you can cite that :chin:



...anyways, glasses can be attractive. The aesthetic properties I'm not sure about precisely; on some faces, they make the face look slimmer and the eyes somewhat further apart. That therefore they might simply alter the perception of the structure of the face in a positive way seems plausible to me.
