“Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses” – legendary words spoken from American author and humorist Dorothy Parker, but is that still true? We say: nonsense!
Time and time again, it’s been proven, especially in recent years, there’s hardly a shortage of men who love women in glasses. But why exactly do men find four-eyed ladies so irresistible? Here are our own ideas:
1. The “Sexy Librarian”
You probably saw this one coming, we’ve all seen them – the young and good-looking women who we occasionally see sat behind library counters, perhaps looking very serious and studious as they gaze intently at a computer screen. Glasses can so enhance the erudite look of the sexy librarian that they are now considered a key part of the unmistakable look called, well, the Sexy Librarian.
Okay, so you might not immediately think that they look “the life of the party”, so to speak, but actually that steely demeanour is a big part of the attraction – because it’s even more exciting to discover a woman’s, ahem, naughty side if she rarely puts it on public show.
