Recently have been told I look like Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island. I hadn't heard that in years, but that is a good place to start as to what I look like, although she had a better bod. I have three boys and have been married for 13 years. Born of a Navy family, in Hawaii, one Mom, one Dad, one sister and one brother. The eldest of three children. BS in Applied Mathematics. Consider Pensacola my home town although I moved every 2-3 years of my life growing up. Currently work in the aerospace industry in an engineering position while being a Mom. Of Celtic heritage and very proud of it.

Adam and Eve?

SarahK over at Mountaineer Musings was wondering about men and hair and what they like. It has been my experience that most men, and I truly mean MOST men, prefer women with long hair. I call it the Adam and Eve syndrome. Nothing makes a man happier than to have his woman naked with long hair.

That's why I keep my hair longish(shoulder length or slightly below)... my Man likes my hair long. I think it's a pain in the neck, so I keep it up in a chip clip during the day. He sees it long, nobody else, unless he asks me to wear it that way when we go out. I think my hair looks messy long; he doesn't.

Now short women like me have to watch out how long we keep our hair. If we keep it too long, we look like Cousin It. For short women, shouulder length or right between the shoulder blades is about as long as we can get. Short women should not do the Crystal Gale thing. Actually... bleh, I'm not so sure anyone should do the Crystal Gale thing.

So what say you, men? Am I right? Long hair naked women?

Bou, most of us are perfectly happy to negotiate on the length of the hair, it's the naked part that's got our interest.

I'm backing you up on this. Men don't fantasize about women with short hair.

Don't believe me? Search Google images under the word fantasy. See what comes up.

We'll tolerate it, since we understand that long hair's a pain in the ass to take care of, but it's not what we want.

Ya, men like long hair.

I had shoulder blade length hair then decided to go shoulder length hair. Did that for about a year and can't remember how it came up but hubby said he liked my hair how it use to be. So I'm just about done growing it back to shoulder blade length again.

I can attest that men like long hair because all during my life up until 1989 I had really short hair, men never even looked at me. I decided that since my friends with long hair got men I would grow my hair longer. When it grew out to about a bob (ear length) men started paying attention to me, so I've kept it long since then.

I like my hair short and it's staying that way! I had long hair till I was 36-37 and certainly no man ever loved my long hair so much he ever gave me a second glance. After I cut my hair short, all of a sudden I start getting hit on. I have small features and long hair always was like having a blanket on my head, and I used it to hide behind. Short, I can't hide, I have to be confident, and you can finally see my face. Even the guys at work who begged me not to cut my hair admitted after that it was a good move.

Anyway, if some guy isn't going to want to be around me because of my *hair*, then he's the one with the problem, and I'm certainly better off without him.

My hair is the same length as yours, and I deal with it in exactly the same way: loose around the house, and up outside. It looks good down if I spend ages with the straighteners, but who the hell has the time? (Apart from Jennifer Anniston)

Oh, that was me by the way. Still, at least I didn't post as Alex. He'd have some explaining to do about that.

An addendum - there are a few, VERY few, women who have the pixieish facial features that make short hair look becoming, and long hair can distract attention from those charming facial features.

But even though some women DO look better with short hair, it's STILL not what men fantasize about :-)
