We’re two, but we are the same

Around the Internet, you will find numerous blogs that related this study. My twisted mind came to the conclusion that women just want a male version of themselves. The mess that is Lindsay Lohan has recently put her finger on this. Interviewed by Elle Magazine, she had those words of wisdom [cough, cough] about this douche:

“He’s me in male form. We’re very similar “

A male form of yourself? Of course, we all say that birds of a feather flock together, but what if the male bird starts to mimick everything the female one does?

G., 34, explained that sometimes, her man has a bit of feminine ways. “I ‘ve got the impression sometimes to be with my female best friends. He proposes to do my nails, and to pamper ourselves together. At the beginning, I found this a bit awkward, but now, I enjoy this”she said.

H., 31, told me her man takes care more of himself than she does. “He has more beauty products than I have. He goes to the esthetician more than I do to get waxed, because he doesn’t like to shave. And if he has to do the dishwashing, he’ll wear gloves to protect his hands. I don’t” she explained.

Since the macho is definitely out of flavor, how effeminate do you like guys?

May I remind you that men nowadays fit in three differents categories. The first one is the metrosexual, best illustrated by David Beckham.

Then, there’s the übersexual, best illustrated by George (Clooney, for those who live on Mars).

And finally, there’s the retrosexual, the exact opposite of the metrosexual.

That’s a tough question, isn’t it?

    Hehe! So you conclude it’s narcissism.

    Well sure… look at Liza Minelli and David Gest. Or Mick Jagger and Bianca. Or David Bowie and his first wife, Angela. A lot of people like to flatter their self-image with a replica of themselves.

    It must be difficult, though, as those relationships deteriorate… almost like a twisted version of Dorian Grey.

  2. Hi Lola Lyndon !
    Yes, indeed, I conclude there’s a bit of narcissism in this.
    And you’re right, this isn’t a healthy relationship when time starts to deploy its effect.

    I blogged on this same story today, but I found a contradicting article that said that women look for men who resemble their fathers. That is, provided they had a good father.

    Maybe in lieu of that — like in Lindsey’s case, and having been raised by her mother, she might seek a more feminine man? It’s a theory.

  5. Well, of course, it depends a lot on how you were raised, Lola Lyndon. Not everyone is looking for an exact copy of themselves. And for the father thing, maybe this story is right. Either you choose a clone of your father, or the opposite.
    For Lindsay, her choice of bad boys is quite indeed related to her father (who spent a lot of time in jail). I don’t think Calum Best is that feminine.

  6. I read a article once (cant remember where from) where a study had hundreds of women look at pics of effeminate (clean-shaven, wholesome abercrombie-type guys) and macho-type guys (thick-browed dark-skinned neanderthal types) and choose the one they like best. Then the researchers found out where these women were in their monthly cycle. The study concluded that women prefer effeminate-looking guys except for days when they’re ovulating — then they prefer the macho-type guys.

  8. That would mean, Liz, that we would prefer Jack Black when we’re ovulating? Geez, I know that sometimes, my hormones play tricks on me, but there… Eeewwww. 🙂

    I’d go out with Jack and George. They’re both hilarious and the intelligence demonstrated by a sense of humor is still the greatest aphrodisiac.

    Re: Calum Best
    He might not be feminine but he certainly seems to possess a weak character.

  11. Lola, of course, in the end, it’s always the personality that wins over the physic. What’s the use of having an apollo without a brain?
    And for Calum Best, he has the same self-destructive character than Lindsay Lohan. So, in that sense, they make a good match.
