Girls in Glasses

“Men don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses” Dorothy Parker

I’ve worn glasses since I was in third grade, except for my mid-teens/early 20’s, when I wore contacts, and then switched back to glasses from about 24 on.  

Lots of babes I know wear glasses.  My friend Rachel is a knockout and she wears wire-rims.  My friend Melissa just got a really sexy new pair of cheaters.  And when I asked the Panel of Gentleman, not one of them said they ever have a problem making a pass at a girl in a pair of spectacles.  In fact, several of them said they prefer it.

But just as a test, I put in a new pair of lenses and . . . nobody noticed.  I take that back–Mike noticed because he complimented my new blue eyeliner, which he might not have seen if I was wearing glasses.

Dorothy Parker is witty and wonderful, but in beauty tips, she couldn’t be more wrong.
