Call Me Flounder
Vernon Wormer, former dean of students at Faber College, once said that “fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life.” He may have been mistaken:
Playgirl’s Hunks? The Hairy, Chubby & Poor (NY Daily News)
Forget waxed chests and rock-hard abs. A new survey finds ladies like their men scruffy, a wee bit chubby — and definitely not a metrosexual.
Playgirl asked 2,000 of its readers what they find sexy in a man and the answers were surprising: 42% said they thought love handles were kind of sexy and 47% approved of chest hair.
Rich playboys need not apply — only 4% of women said the size of a man’s wallet mattered. Metrosexuals are also out: 73% want a guy who is “rough around the edges.”
Luckily, I’ve got “rough around the edges” down to an art form.
The article also notes that while women make practical dating choices, men remain as superficial and shallow as ever. As the saying goes, if it wasn’t for double standards, I’d have no standards at all.
