My friend Dani was worried about what to wear. A guy friend (Mark) laughed and exclaimed, “Boys are Neanderthals! Wear something shiny.”
Okay, he said it, but I was thinking it. Mark explained how boys have the attention span of newly born baby seals, so they only notice things that really stand out.
He waved around his shiny watch, and praised the aesthetic usefulness of jewelry. (It shines!).
I was a little perturbed. I was talking to a boy I recently started dating, and we were on the subject of attractive features. I asked him what he found most attractive about a girl. He said the eyes. (I rolled my eyes).
I asked him what color my eyes were. He couldn’t answer me! He finally said brown (wrong).
Okay, so maybe you don’t notice what I’m wearing, but not knowing my eye color is a bit much. What exactly had he been looking at all those times we hung out?
Should I be mad that he didn’t know my eye color? What do you think boys do notice?
