Real men wear pink! Being the macho man that I am….I was skeptical. I’m all about risk and putting myself out there, but pink seemed a little much for my outgoing personality. It seemed too feminine and didn’t enhance the mountain man of manliness that is me. I loved the quote “my face carries the burden of handsomeness every day” because—well, that’s how I feel! Could pink make me even more appealing to the opposite sex? How do you improve on awesomeness? Never one to settle for anything less than my best, I decided to research the color pink a little more.
So I decided to ask women what they thought about men in pink. The first thing that comes to mind with the color pink and men is that women believe these men have confidence and are comfortable in who they are. Score—1 point for pink. I love to exude confidence, and I am comfortable in who I am. Pink seemed like it could be the jelly to my peanut butter. As I continued to ask what women thought of men in pink, the answers were all positive. Pink is a great compliment to most skin tones, who knew? Pink also hints at a sensitive man. Hmm! A man who is confident and sensitive? What lady wouldn’t love that! Not only can pink let women know that I am confident, but it can also show my sensitivity to the world and those women in the world. Bam—2 points for pink!
Probably the best thing I heard about pink is that women love the color itself. And when a woman sees pink, she’s more than likely going to give pink on a gentleman a second glance. Believe me, I think love at first sight is awesome, but most of us need a few glances before we are hooked. Wearing pink may just give me a way into the door of a woman’s heart. Or at least give her the second look she needs to fall in love with me! It turned out that pink isn’t a color to be afraid of but embraced. Maybe if I embrace pink, it would lead to women embracing me!
Pink is a scary color for most of the male species, but used in the right way, it can be a crucial ally in the search for great manly fashion sense. It can turn the ordinary and meek man into a bold and confident one! It can bring life and color to the dullness that most men find in their wardrobes. It suggests to the world that as a man I am complete and a force with whom to be reckoned. Pink is a friend in color that can make your life pop! Men, just keep this in mind: Real men do wear pink!
Editor's Note: Hey there, folks...it is I, Lauren, with just a quick commentary on the image I inserted into this blog post. I wanted to find a manly man wearing pink. How about this photo of actor Dennis Haybert (known recently for his acting on the show The Unit)!! Look at how chic and confident he carries himself in pink...real men really DO wear pink!
