In my experience Yarnlady that description can apply to others as well. Straight men have not cornered the market on attitude. I've seen women and gay men act like that, too. Some people are just know it alls.

I think it's fine for men to be in a nail salon and wish more of them would go. DH picks his nails, too btw. I have to watch what I keep next to his recliner or it may be used if is pocket knife is missing.

seconded. I even know lesbians who have that type of know-it-all attitude.

I think more men, and people in general should get pedi's more often... feet I've seen on some young men/women are just rancid!

Well I think it's gonna be a no-go for him. He's just not "into" it and would rather spend the money on something else. So I'm not going to press the issue. Whatever... I'll go by myself!

I took my hubby for a pedicure. He was uneasy about it at first, looking around to see who was watching us go in. He carried a "manly" book with him to read. (Some kind of war book)

When we got in the chairs, I showed him how to use the controls for heat and massage, and he started to relax.

I was the first one to get my pedicure, then his started soon after. It was good that way, because he could see each procedure being done on my feet, and was able to prepare himself when it happened to him.

When it was over, he said, "Wow, that felt great. I'm definitely adding it to my list, along with getting a haircut every month."

Eh, I don't really care what people do with their feet, as long as they keep them hygienic.

I personally love pedicures, and think everyone should get them because they feel so niiiiiiiice.

Yeah, that's what I say. I asked DH again this morning and again he kindly said no, so I'm going all by myself tomorrow.
He just doesn't know what he's missing!

:rollseyes: I think it is silly for a man to wax any part of his body. Funny how your tastes change. As a young girl, I thought hairy men were gross. Til I met my boyfriend. My boyfriend is pretty hairy, and I love it! I'd beat him if he ever considered getting a single hair on his body waxed. I get ticked when he gets his hair cut and they want to trim his eyebrows! I won't allow it. I love his eyebrows -- they are kind of long, dark brown with the longer brows a golden color and they just set off his amber colored eyes perfectly.

Men waxing.... reminds me of the scene from What Women Want when Mel Gibson tests an at home waxing kit on his leg....

What is done when you have a pedicure? My wife gets them every once in a while.

I grew up in a family of men with really long eyebrows and they don't trim them. The hairs get a little wild at times, but us gals get to smooth them into place. My SO has them too, but he trims them! I can't talk him into just letting them grow.

OTH, I'm really glad he trims his ear and nose hairs!
