Just about every weekend I find myself roaming the streets of DC. There is always something going on and cool people to meet. The other week I was out for Cinco de Mayo at a happy hour that was completely lit at 7pm. Tons of eligible bachelors that screamed “grown man”.
This one guy approached me and we hit it off. Great conversation and I loved his look. He was dressed in a nice fitted suit, Cole Hanns, and wore his hair in a nice Temple and Top cut with nice curls at the top. When he asked could he see me again, I quickly responded yes and put my number in his phone.
We went out for dinner the following Wednesday and dove deep into conversation about life, politics, and even self appearance. All was well until he got on how guys can wear “accessories” to better themselves as well. “Huh, what do you mean?”
He then went into how he wears a hair piece to give him this particular look and that it wasn’t his hair. With a blank stare on my face I was in disbelief. But it looked so natural, and it was one of the things I noticed first about him. His hair is just so…neat.
My next response was asking if he was bald or something. To my surprise he said no. He just has a regular clean cut but wanted to do something to switch up his look.
I just couldn’t believe the conversation we were having, and the fact that he was so honest about it too!
I know we’ve all seen the photos floating around with the hair pieces for men, but I just didn’t think I would ever be having a conversation with a heterosexual male who actually wore one and was open about it on the first date.
At this point I could no longer take him seriously, and after the date told him I just wasn’t interested in him in that way and we haven’t spoke since.
What’s your take on men and weave*?
