A hair-raising story

Dear Conversely,

Ask us a Question! A few weeks ago I went out on a blind date with a girl who, at first, was very attractive. Then, in the middle of dinner, I notice she has a nose hair sticking out. I'm not talking about a tiny nose hair, but a very long one. Now, I know this sounds petty, but I couldn't focus on much else for the rest of the night. Needless to say, that was the end of it for the nose-hair lady and I. When I told my woman friend about it, she called me a completely superficial loser. I was kind of disgusted by the nose hair, but now I'm feeling guilty and I wonder what you think. Is my friend right? Email to a Friend

Her view:

Dear Harried,

I'm not sure if you're more 'George' for writing in about your self-doubt, or more 'Jerry' for obsessing to no end on some random peccadillo that renders this woman undatable. 'She had man-hands.'

Honestly, why do you care what two anonymous writers think about your superficiality? If you must know, I think a long nose-hair like the one you describe (which I would assume gets in the way of sanitary eating habits) is a ruler-outer. Who wants to make out with nose hair? Decidedly unattractive. Not much of a groomer, is she?

Now, if you're backdoor-asking whether or not you should see this woman again, that depends on your appetite for dangling hairs from unexpected places. If you find her unattractive, for whatever reason, why bother with a second date? It will be more of the same.

His view:

Dear Harried,

Having dinner with a long nose hair can be a taxing experience. It may even appear, at times, that the nose hair is dominating the conversation and trying to steal your food. Then the nose hair will begin drinking too much and before you know it, it will want to go home with you. And we all know the last thing you want to do is wake up next to a nasty long nose hair. I mean, who knows how much longer it will grow overnight? And what if it tries to make friends with your own nose hairs? What if it tries to get them to come out and play with it?

I guess you could just grab a pair of scissors and cut off the hair, but then you'd be left with an attractive, single girl. And what would you do with that, I wonder?
