Would You (Should You)? ever wear Skinny Jeans

Today my pal Jimmy Jacob from Personalsfacts is guest posting and giving us his two cents on the perils and pitfalls of women wearing skinny jeans:

On my personal dating blog, I mostly cover all subjects related to love and sex. However, I have never ever commented on a woman’s fashion sense and how it actually affects their dating lives and I know of one article of clothing that most women own that is quite damaging does scare potential suitors away.

Skinny jeans.

Call me an a*shole, but I just don’t see how ladies are continuing to delude themselves into believing that skinny jeans are sexy and fashionable on every gal. In fact, it’s the polar opposite and it’s hurting a lot of women’s’ sex lives. I know that Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj have taught women that they can be who they want to be and wear what they want to wear—but in my opinion, that’s just plain stupid.

Being an adult means being able to decipher what you can and can’t get away with. Just because I love the way my feet feel in Crocs, does not mean I will ever go in public and showcase them for the world to see.

Now here are the three main reasons as to why men think women should not wear skinny jeans:

Makes The Chubby Look Chubbier

I think the reason why a lot of women buy skinny jeans is because they think they are ‘slimming.’ Skinny jeans don’t make you skinny. If you are not skinny, skinny jeans only point out your gargantuan thighs, ass and waist. Honestly, they can’t even be comfortable when you’re that overweight. Seriously, what are some of you thinking?

They Create The Unflattering Mushroom Top

I adore love handles on a woman like any real man should, but if we see them seeping out of your pants, it’s a major turn-off. Even if a woman is slim, I find that skinny jeans have the effect to make her look bigger than she would if she wore normal denim jeans. If any item of clothing makes parts of your body look like something Super Mario would stomp on, then it’s best to get rid of them.

They Make You Look Like Big Foot

I wish someone would tell skinny girls that even though they can fit into skinny jeans perfectly, that it doesn’t hide their enormous feet. Skinny jeans only make your feet look like huge Sasquatch feet. These girls are also the ditzy ones that love wearing neon colored heels too—only showcasing their huge feet even more so. Yup, that’s really going to turn men on more.

In closing, I’m not saying this because I’m a prick. I am by no means a fashion god. I just wear clothes that make me feel comfortable and I’m most attracted to women that do the same. I just want women out there to appreciate their bodies and to not wear things because everybody else is wearing them. Be sexy in your own unique way. That’s all I’m asking for.

Are you twirting with me?

The magazine subscription source with free shipping.

I was absolutely mesmerized by a post by Jimmy at Personalsfacts who asked if twitter was the new relationship killer. Apparently his girlfriend thought he was tweeting with too many females. Luckily he was able to set her at ease by explaining that true intimacy and trust can't be broken over a two-sentence update. Frankly, I was amazed. I didn't even know you could 'twirt' via twitter. I mean, goodness me, I know all about the perils of all sorts of flirting that goes on on Facebook with much prodding, winking and poking. And I do of course know that Facebook is now cited in 1 and 5 divorce cases.

But swear to God I didn't know about twirting. So maybe some of you who follow my tweets on twitter have been twirting away in the most stilted way possible. If you were I'm sorry - I just didn't notice!!!

I of course knew about Anthony Weiner tweeting about his weiner but I think I just thought 'what a weiner' to put your weiner out there like that.

And therein lies the rub. The problem with social media and trying to form relationships via its portals. It is good in a sense that you can communicate with everyone, but the problem is there is tons of room for getting the wrong end of the weiner (sorry I'll stop now). Because not only might your boy/girlfriend get insanely jealous of how much time you spend blogging, facebooking or tweeting, your usage of social media might also just inflame jealousies when you are perfectly innocent.

Maybe that is why my relationship with my husband is fairly easy. He does not have twitter, facebook, or for that matter a cell phone. And I applaud him for it!

Maintaining a relationship is a careful balance of giving the person too much attention and giving them too little. Now if you both have facebook, twitter and cell phone, what's to stop you from contacting them with the most banal stuff like shopping lists or remember to take the trash out? I think many people don't know quite how irritating their constant phoning of their spouse is.

I think that on balance social media is more a constant source of irritation than anything else. It is always bandied about that it is so great that we can all communicate around the world in seconds. But why is it? Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore twirted with each other day and night and look how that ended.

The basic fact is once you put something via a text or via the internet it is there for anyone to access, intercept or feel vaguely nauseous about like the twirting between Shane Warne and Elizabeth Hurley.

Believe me, if I could I would probably turn back time to when we all wrote with quill pens. Although that wasn't so rosy either. Back in Jane Austen's time instead of writing dirty tweets people were, well, dirty. Even posh people only bathed about once a month, you had to pee in a chamber pot and had rotten teeth.

And what about you? Do you tweet or facebook your significant other? Do you constantly text your Lovebug? Has it added to your relationship or caused major friction?

I long for a time when I didn't know about people's private lives. Who can look at Prince Charles in the same way after he said he wanted to be Camilla's tampon.

So what is the answer? Do we need to burn our iPads and start wearing knee britches and long gowns and waiting months for letters to arrive while frantically sitting in drafty mansions working at an embroidering of a spaniel?

For me I just bask in the romance of knowing that my beloved is....completly out of reach!
