Tuckerjo: “For someone to say and really mean that they don't care how anyone perceives them or that they don't care if the opposite sex finds them attractive or not are either liars or have mental problems .We all do things to make ourselves look better even if all it is would be to take a shower, make yourselves smell nice, brush your teeth , wear flattering clothes etc.. After all if we were to all go completely natural then naturally we are a pretty smelly species.”

Scary thing is there are people out there that are like that. LOL Sad actually.

As for the lifts, I truly didn’t even know they made them for guys. But when I see a lady and see that she is just about the height I am looking for but she is in 4” heels I might not be interested. But the thing is we can see that she is in heels and mentally adjust to her physical height. Guys wearing “lifts” that are not evident to the lady he has approached seems misleading to me. IMHO

jimmyd: I actually disagree with you there. I dress up, brush my teeth, and shower because I feel unclean otherwise. I could really care less what the opposite sex thinks of me, but I sure as hell won't let myself look and smell nasty to prove that I could care less. What I'm saying is your point stands that people who look and smell bad obviously don't care, but that doesn't go the other way around. Just because they don't care what other people think doesn't mean they HAVE to look and smell bad.

Panda, I did not state that if you don’t care what the opposite sex thinks of you means that you do not practice good hygiene. What I was agreeing to is that there are people out there that not only don’t care what the opposite sex thinks but what anyone thinks of them and they are offensive to others which is just disrespectful to people in general. Sorry if you took it the wrong way.

You said:

For someone to say and really mean that they don't care how anyone perceives them or that they don't care if the opposite sex finds them attractive or not are either liars or have mental problems


and then continued to say:

We all do things to make ourselves look better even if all it is would be to take a shower, make yourselves smell nice, brush your teeth , wear flattering clothes etc.


It implies that people make themselves look better for other people. I'm just saying that I make myself look better for my own sake, not to impress others, and I'm not a liar nor do I have mental problems.

panda: Read what you quoted carefully. Do you really claim to not care at all about how anyone perceives you? Not only potential dates, but potential employers, friends, etc? If you don't, then he wasn't calling you a liar or mentally ill.

I think nothing less of any man or woman who try and better themselves or improve their own sense of self worth...

I would prefer he work out at a gym instead of using lifted shoes as it's a little more natural. Maybe wear dark clothes for a slimming effect and shoes with a 1 inch heel but whatev'

If he's comfortable wearing lifts and not scared to disappoint potential partners so be it. Giver!

Personally I would never wear lifts cause I fear disappointing people more than anything in life.

I heard about a guy with a bad attitude who wore lifts when he went out and about. 'Thought he might get more action with the babes in the bars. 'Trouble was, he was already six foot four. I guess he thought he'd stand out more. He did. An average guy came up to him with one of the standard quips, "How's the weather up there?" With a spit spray pointed downward, the well heeled guy replied, "It's rainin".

I'm leery of women who are very tall and insist on wearing four inch heels. I like tall women, I'm taller than average myself, but I'm not into women who accentuate their height when they're really tall already. They kind of remind me of a conning tower, if you get my drift.

OMG, I can be 6-feet tall? Woo-Hoo!

Seriously, if given a choice before birth I would prefer to be taller, but I just never considered doing this.
I really don’t even try to enhance my height by the shoes I wear.

My daily shoes and even my dress shoes are very close to having “flat heels” – they are just more comfortable IMHO.
I just love those Italian Ferragamo dress shoes but face it they aren’t going to give you a “lift”!

It’s funny. On snow days I wear water resistant work boots that have a substantial heel and sole and everyone that knows me stops and says “whoa”.

I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with wearing “lifts” but what happens when you are in a situation where you cannot?

If you can do something that can enhance your looks or overall appeal then go for it.

Yes, I get my haircut at “not the cheapest place”, floss daily, keep my fingernails and toenails trimmed, shave daily, wear clean clothes, work out daily, tan… and so forth. Some may even consider me to be a “metrosexual”.
I just never considered wearing lifts. The women I've dated never seemed to have an issue with my height so maybe that’s why?

Well I certainly don't think any less of men who wear lifts.
Let me guess.... you wear a padded bra.

This came up at a party a while ago when one woman said to another "But what will you do when he sees you with smaller t1ts?" because the chick wore a padded bra. I said "What are you chicks talking about? Can I get in?" "Testy (not my real name), what do you think of women who wear padded bras?" "Uh..... they're comfortable?"

Honest to god, I thought padded bras was a comfort/shape thing, not an enhancement tool.

I suppose if it made the man feel better about himself, because it does seem a lot of women prefer taller men, than there really isn't any harm in it. However, he would be wise to tell a woman he might want to see that he does....after all, if he had to take his shoes off at her door, and was suddenly two inches shorter, him and his shoes, might be tossed out!

If you read up a bit further, you'll see that yes I claim that I don't care at all about how anyone perceives me. The only person in my opinion that matters is myself. This being said, I'm not like most other people that don't care what other people think. For one thing, I'm not lazy in the way I take care of myself because I want to feel both comfortable and good about myself. Quite frankly, being a mess isn't comfortable. Smelling bad isn't comfortable.

This also doesn't mean that I refuse to follow what's acceptable in society. I'm comfortable in a suit, and I'm comfortable in shorts and a T-shirt. It doesn't matter to me which I wear, so my next priority becomes to do what does not alienate people. In other words, say I'm going for an interview. I don't care if I wear shorts or a suit. Either one is fine to me, so I'll do what my employer is comfortable seeing...But, if my employer (not that this would ever happen) requires that I go in rags for the interview, I would still show up in either shorts/T-shirt or a suit because I don't feel comfortable in rags...even if it means I lose the job. I don't care what other people think of me, but that doesn't mean I set low standards for myself...make sense?

Nope. What you've actually described is you care some, in some circumstances, but possibly not always nor about everyone. At the very least though, you seem to care about what other people on this forum think, or else you would've ended this irrelevant and inane digression about YOU a long time ago.

vvvv edit: my bad. typo - fixed to say "would've"!

Ok, I really don't understand wha your last sentence means, nor do I understand how you gather the fact ath I do seem to care what people on this forum think from anything. I just don't like people to tell me that I'm not what I say I am. but sure, you're right. I care what people think of me only after what I think of myself first. So I apologize for that on my part.

YOU do care - or you would go in the shorts regardless of what the employer is more comfortable seeing you in - it wouldnt matter... there is no shame in caring what others think about you or the perception they have you

there are no "look how unshallow I am cookie points" for anyone

Haha, I've done it before, but that doesn't really get me a job. I do need money to survive, so when it boils down to it...yeah i'll suck it up and do what society wants and continue living over doing only what I want and not living. But anyway, I'm sorry I contradicted myself. I still don't really think I care too much what other people think...perhaps save for the job interview situation. I'm not doing it for brownie points...just for myself.

I don't wear lifts, I don't need it with cowboy boots.

But again, I don't wear it to look taller. I'm 'short' anyways.

I posted no contradictions. When asked if I would be upset or care that a man I had been dating had been wearing lifts all along I said I probably wouldn't care. Since I said nowhere else that I would never date a man who wore lifts then there is no contradiction there. When asked if I would date a shorter man the answer was "no that I would not date a shorter man" . Since I have never said anywhere else that I would date a shorter man then again no contradictions there.

I already said I would not date a man shorter then my height or even a man near my height so why you are accusing me of lying about that or waffling on my preferences and views I don't know. Please by all means go through my entire posting history and see if anywhere I have ever said that I would date or found shorter men then me attractive.


As for balls,yuck! No thanks . I don't want to grow any. They are ugly.

I'm only 5'7 , but I would not wear lifts. If a woman does not care for someone my height, oh well, that's her choice. There will be others out there who don't care how tall someone is if they really like them. I like women of all heights.

Well like the title says "would you wear lifts?".



Nah. There's more than enough "why do men play games/lie?" posts on POF already.
