    I am a sucker for a female with black framed glasses.

    Glasses can look really good on some people, but they're not for me. I don't feel like myself when I wear mine, which I rarely do. I wear contacts day and night now that they have those awesome ones you wear for a month straight. I'm lucky my eyes tolerate them very well and I can go almost 2 months without having to get a new pair in.

    Honestly... I ask because I've been considering lasik, but wanted to know what others thought about the whole glasses-attraction-perception. Not that it's a huge deal to me... I just know that in a few years I'd probably have to have reading glasses anyway, regardless of whether or not I had lasik.... so I'm not sure if it'd be worth the money for me to have the surgery. *shrug*
    Skip the lasik and wear your sexy glasses, even the big black-framed ones. They look sexy.

    I had the same problem as you. I have worn glasses since I was 4 and hated them. As a teenager I switched to contacts and I wore hard lenses, soft lenses, then extended wear. The irritation I felt with something in my eyes and the damage done as I wore them day after day and had enzymes build up on the lenses grew to where I just couldn't wear them anymore, even a fresh pair. For 8 years now I have only worn glasses and all those problems with contacts have just gone away. I love my glasses.

    My glasses were trusty companions. I have contacts, but I still have bent glasses.

    So is the old saying, "Guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses" true or is that hangup a thing of the past?
    Doubt glasses would bother me, unless they were really thick-framed and ostentatious.

    On the other hand, the right glasses on the right female can be quite hot, so perhaps the would "bother" me.

    Why? What is appealing about thick black frames all of a sudden? I don't get it - it completely elludes me. When I was a kid that was the generic frames for poor kids whose parent's couldn't afford anything else - thus - I got stuck with them. They were associated with poor, nerd or ugly my entire life - after years of being picked on *for* having to wear them suddenly people like my husband are trying to get me to wear them - get me to CHOOSE to wear them.

    I just don't get it - of all the looks to have - why is that now the "sexy" glasses?
