    Picked up my first ever pairs of glasses today, after having put off getting my eyes tested for ages despite knowing that I'm a bit short-sighted!

    I only need to wear them for driving really, as I was having trouble reading destinations on signs at a distance (e.g. for roundabout exits) though I'm planning to wear them a lot this week at home to grow accustomed to them.

    The title of the thread is tongue in cheek really as I'm not interested in attracting a partner as I already have one, but I did wonder if guys who wear glasses have noticed whether they tend to get less attention if they go out in theirs or not?

    I think the right kind of glasses on a guy can look really hot personally! Though I'm still not sure if mine suit me (perhaps just because they're new and I need to get used to them!)

    Feel free to post pics of you in glasses or hot guys wearing glasses to make me feel better about needing them icon_smile.gif I feel a bit old!

    wearing glasses would be a rather thin, stupid, dumbassed reason to not make a pass at a guy, IMO.

    such a thin, surface orientated guy is not worth your time.

    It widens the pool a bit, but I don't know if it deepens also or stays shallow. icon_wink.gif

    Glasses don't have to be unaesthetic.

    I think my main hurdle to get over is that I do tend to have that whole glasses = nerd association, and although I admit to definitely being a massive nerd, I never wanted to look like one icon_smile.gif

    I love chunky black frames but they didn't suit me at all!

    I like the one you've mentioned 'Mad Men' in the caption, I think the word for that look would be suave! You definitely suit them!

    For me, guys in glasses have this irresistible geek-chic thing about them.

    I had a cousin who was so vain that she never wore her glasses. Stupid as shit on a few counts. For one, she went through a lot of her life not seeing it (in more ways than one). And then, even though she was a hot chic, after her first very hot boyfriend, she only hooked up with guys who didn't take her breath away so she could feel in control. Just a few issues blurred over there.

    I didn't get contacts until my 40s. For most of my teens, 20s & 30s, my trademark was rose colored glasses. Back then and with rare exception, I pretty much got any of the hottest guys I wanted so, no, they never seemed to interfere with my getting laid.

    Here I am in my 20s in glasses. I look pretty sex-starved, huh?

    a lot of people dig glasses...you should ask the person who fits you for glasses what works the best with your face, etc.

    i have kind of a longer narrower face (although not horsey, I don't think)...so box-shaped frames work well for me. it all depends...there are certain shapes that would not do me any favors. so get a consultation and it can really make you look hotter...although you are pretty enough as you are. icon_wink.gif

    I've been wearing glasses for half my life. I recently started wearing contacts for social occasions. I think I look better w/o my glasses. As I don't get hit on too often, I haven't noticed a difference w/ or w/o glasses.

    Wearing glasses (rather than contacts) to go out is pretty new to me, but it has posed no problems so far, and I certainly don't mind glasses on others . . . besides looking good (if he's picked the right pair), you get to undress him a little bit before making out. But I've had to wear them since 4th grade, so I guess I got my dorkies out pretty early.

    Glasses seem to be very "hipster" in San Francisco right now. The Nerd look has been back in fashion for a while.

    I definitely dig the thought of fucking a Nerd while he's wearing his glasses.

    I'm in the minority here in that glasses are kind of a turn off for me. I don't care if I get any lip about it. If it's ok for people to exclude an entire race due to "preference", its ok for me to "prefer" that a guy wear contacts. I wear glasses/contacts so I guess that makes me "self loathing" too lol. I would never refuse to talk to someone because they wore glasses or anything like that, but, I "prefer" guys who wear contacts or don't wear glasses.

    Glasses on an already physically hot guy, add to the hotness. Especially because of the nerd aesthetic. I wish I could wear them.
