So fellow CM'ers, I have had some self-composed profile "interview" questions up for several months now. One poses a question I knew could be a rather sensitive topic for some CM ladies. But, I must say, I put the question there deliberately to help better gauge what is to me (and, I think, many men) an important element of compatibility. Or, at least, the question could start a conversation with a lady leading to us both to better know that aspect of our compatibility. That was my thinking, anyway.
But, I have some evidence now to suspect that just by raising the topic, a fella could be painting himself as a bit of a jerk (undeservedly so, c'mon now ) across the broad spectrum of ladies, regardless of how they would each personally answer. So, I ask the ladies here broadly...is this question a jerk's question, or not?
[And, please keep in mind what the lady is really being asked, not what others (especially, men) think of her, but what she thinks of herself.]
Q: Your attitude toward your own body is best described by:
A) "I would never discuss that with any man, not even my husband."
B) "No matter what this culture prizes, I'm happy enough with what I see in the mirror."
C) "I don't like to think about how I look to others."
D) "It's a battlefield in a war I'm forever losing."
E) "For my age, I think I'm pretty hot ;) ."
Jerk, or not, Ladies? Should it be asked at all...thrown out, worded different...do you see it as a reasonable element in wife-husband compatibility? Gents, feel free to offer insight or experiences too.
But, jus' saying, I do think the woman that my wife (to be, hopefully) sees in the mirror is important...to me.
