Woman and her Power

Updated on September 24, 2012

attracting women

It has been long argued that women are the weaker sex... I so strongly disagree . Women it seems have the power to manipulate men and have us weak as kittens.

I actually had fooled myself into thinking that at this point in my life I was focused. Focused on me for awhile and i'd get back to dating later. Then it happened. I got the 'magic' shirt.

Yes I know , many fellas have a 'lucky' shirt. No. This shirt is purely magical, and I must be irresistible when I wear it. You see , at 47 and being single, I can shop all by myself. Free to buy manly type clothes with no input from a woman. Now that's power.

I decided to throw the fashion dice, and bet it all on one roll. The shirt is a rather bright orange,button down, nice cotton blend. The kind that tourists wear to places that earn them strange looks from the natives. That first day wearing it though, and I received a compliment from the first woman I encountered. A very attractive woman. Young attractive woman. "Nice shirt." That's all she said, and my world changed. Of course when a woman tells a man "nice shirt", well, any fool knows what that means ... right?

It means I still got it (whatever 'it' is). And even though I probably didn't have a chance with her, she had noticed me. My male pattern baldness , and slight gut didn't matter suddenly. It was the shirt. At lunch time other women noticed too, obviously being floored by my magic ,orange shirt. It must be something about bright colors that women love. Especially orange. I wore the shirt a few more times that month. Where ever I went women eyed me. The attention from women, for a man, is euphoric.

What do they know, anyway?

Then one day after doing laundry (yes I did wash it often), I found some info that stated scientists reported that women don't even like orange, in fact, it was their least favorite color on a man. I'd previously heard the theories that colors matter to us... instinctively. So I bought more colorful shirts. The orange one held my true loyalty though.

Then one day the young lady who'd originally commented on my good fashion sense, said,"...you must really like orange." Remembering her first comment ,I said , " You do too, huh?" "No, I was just making conversation" she said.

OK. So I didn't still have 'it'. Nor could I buy 'it' in a shirt. So back to plain ol' browns, blues, and greens. For a while though, it was good to have 'it' again. I did realize that it was always a woman who would determine what 'it' was. Also having the power to make me still want to have 'it'. Now, realizing that the opposite sex should't have so much power over me. No mid-life crisis here. I'll dress according to what makes me feel good.

Think I will start working out soon, though.

      Lol... I don't know about that but I do know that us men are just as concerned about our looks as women... sometimes it takes us a while to realize it, or admit!

      Thank you Mj, it is amazing the power that the opposite sex has over us. From now on though i'm gonna wear what i wanna wear full speed ahead. It does feel good to be noticed though, even if it's for the wrong reason! lol

      Well this was certainly a stimulating hub Laurinzo. I'm interested in the meaning of colours and I know that orange is the colour associated with power, healing, enthusiasm and creativity. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. However, what's more pertinent is that orange is the color associated with the Sacral Hara Chakra (sexuality and reproduction). In view of this, I would say you might do well to continue to confidently wear your orange shirt in the hope of attracting a special lady. LOL :) Voted up and awesome.

      Maria.

      P.S. My favourite colour is red :)

      Well thank you for your comments Maria...

      and yes I too agree colors are very important , and play key roles in our interactions.

      I think it was my ego that prompted me to wear that orange shirt though, and today I just chosse to feed my own insatiable ego... lol

      Red though... huh???

      Ha,ha. You made me laugh. I am surprised you didn't follow up on, "I was just making conversation." Maybe she said that because she wanted to make some conversation with you.....

      That was a prime opportunity to say something witty, clever or slightly sexy (in a non-icky way) to disarm her. You know, it's quite possible that she was interested in what was behind the shirt. The color just gave her an excuse to say something. ;))

      Thanks for this fun piece. Women need to be reminded that we actually have some power over men----in a good way.
