Riddle Me This? The Mystery of the Granny Gown

Over the past few years, I've run this scenario past a few guys. Most of them could relate, but none knew the answer. So allow me to put it out there:

You have been dating or involved with this lady for quite some time. You're having one of those late night chats  where she reveals that she's in her bed, butt naked.

Okay, so let's fast forward to the night or the weekend where she's staying at your house or you're staying at hers. The night has been romantic and steamy and now it's time to retire to the bedroom. You come to bed properly attired (or sans attired) but she comes to bed in a t-shirt and shorts or sweats or the ubiquitous granny night gown. Mind you, the temperature is about 10 degrees warmer than the night of the phone conversation.

Now, a few nights have passed, you're back on the phone with her and, again she tells you that she's in bed completely naked. Then, she wonders why this news leaves you not only un-impressed but even slightly annoyed. Talk about a day late and a dollar short!

Any answers to this???

Hahahaha! This is hysterical because its true for a lot of folks.

This makes me think about how when you first meet someone and they keep up their appearances and then after awhile, sometimes, some folks just let themselves go in the name of LOVE and ACCEPTING one another for who they are on the INSIDE. Yes, this is important BUT part of what attracted two people to one another is the appearance factor and so, I don't think its a horrible thing to consider maintaining ourselves (everyone, men and women) and presenting ourselves the way we did in the beginning, throughout the relationship. And NO, I don't mean "Decked Out" dressed-up craziness, everyday, but some sort of maintenance resembling the confidence and attractiveness that was presented from day 1.

People get all sensitive about LOOKS and appearance and talk about how it doesn't really matter BUT to some degree, it counts, it matters, it adds, again, it is definitely, undeniably, part of what brought two people together in the first place - PART OF what attracted two people to each other and so, giving a certain attention to how we look goes a long away, even IF we may not think so and this goes for men and women - PERIOD.
