Phew, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. This month Glamour magazine lets us know that guys are into us even if we aren’t perfect and that we don’t have to change ourselves for their benefit! Need convincing? They have seven wonderful reasons guys love us “just the way we are.” Check them out after the jump.1. “You don’t have to miss out on creme brulee.”
“We love women of all shapes—with bodies and legs and soft things to hold on to,” the male writer explains, “— and it takes food to get that way.” Hear that, ladies? It takes food to get the kind of shape men like! So eat that creme brulee! Inhale that cookies-in-cream milkshake! And chow down on a big plate of cheese fries. But wait! “No need to inhale a steak on a man’s account,” our friend warns. But! But! What other reason is there to enjoy a good meal?
2. “You don’t have to meticulously groom down there for us.”
“Let’s be real: At the end of the day, it’s your vagina, and you should give it whatever haircut you want. ” Do you guys hear that? That’s the sound of me buzzing my bush into the shape of a groundhog. I always wanted to give the style a try, but until now, I didn’t feel liberated enough to give it a go. Thanks, Glamour!
3. “You don’t have to make his hobbies your hobbies, and his life your life.”
Oh, now you tell me! Does this mean I can finally stop dressing in head-to-toe Yankee paraphernalia? Navy blue isn’t my color!
4. “You don’t have to become Jenna Jameson when the bedroom door shuts.”
OK, but can I be Lady Gaga? Just this once, puh-lease? So, the word is if we don’t like deep-throating and we aren’t particularly good at it, guys are happy to “cross it off their wish lists,” because “they don’t like to see us gag.” That’s not what Tracy Morgan said in his stand-up act last week, but, OK, I’ll take Glamour’s word for it.
5. “You don’t have to look perfect.”
Well, that’s fine, but I still expect you to tell me I do. Don’t think you’re getting off the hook that easily. You think these brows just tweeze themselves? Please.
6. “You don’t have to be the daughter my parents never had.”
OK, what? I have a hard enough time being my own parents’ daughter. Believe me — trying to be someone else’s daughter wasn’t even on my radar. But, you know, thanks for the heads-up and everything!
7. “You don’t have to spend $$$ on lingerie.”
Well, of course not. That’s your job!
