New haircut

by singlemomseeking on May 23, 2009

I haven’t had a haircut for more than three months.

In between working and packing and end-of-school plays and concerts, however, it was time to take a lunch break and see Edwin downtown.

Later that day, I’d also planned see the Lucky Guy — and, yes, I had told him that morning that I was getting my haircut.

So, guess what happened when I saw him?

Over coffee, he said, “How was your day?”

“Busy!” I said, flipping my hair.

He held my hand. I tossed my hair back again. Nothing.

Me: “Do you notice anything different about me?”

Him: “No.”

Me, cracking up, and tossing my head back dramatically.

Him: “Your hair!”

Then he added, jokingly: “Well, uh, I have this policy to never comment on a woman’s hair or weight.”

But really, he just forgot — and didn’t notice that I’d had two inches chopped off (granted, it was only two inches, not six):

And the truth is, I don’t really expect guys to comment about physical changes anymore. Sometimes, I think that I could dye my hair red, or get a nose ring — and men wouldn’t notice. (It did give me the chance to tease him relentlessly, however.)

And it got me super curious:

Women: Do you expect a guy say something sweet to you after make a change, like get a haircut or a new outfit?

Men: Do you ever comment after a woman you’re dating gets a haircut, or new clothes?

Or, do you just avoid it altogether? (Seriously, what if you don’t like her new haircut or new clothes. Then what?)
