For those of you who know me, you know that I do not like to associate the term "pretty" with a man, e.g., pretty boy, etc. Pretty, to me, has different connotations. It infers (to me) childlike resemblance. Boys are pretty; men are handsome, sexy, hot, attractive, etc. So, why is that women are insistant to call dudes out and call us "pretty boys," especially when some know we hate the phrase? Am I suppose to be giddy and say, "thanks for the compliment," like a 10 year old boy? I am a man with manly attributes... not boyish... if you follow what I mean.... And why "pretty?" Pretty is so soft... unmasculine. Explanation? I am clueless.......... Yes, I am on a rant today!
