Girls make passes at butches in glasses
I’m blind as a bat. Seriously. Without correction I can see approximately 2 inches in front of my face and beyond that everything becomes blurry. I don’t think it is a coincidence that all of the people I have ever had long term relationships with have had 20/20 vision. I NEED my partners to be able to find my glasses for me when I lose them, or they get knocked off my bedside table, or even just left on a counter somewhere. Nothing induces a major panic in me like not knowing or being able to find my glasses!
Additionally, I have this thing where I HATE anything coming towards my eye. Touching my eyes? Big no-no. Even when I’d like to be goth-emo I can’t do the eye-liner thing. This is actually very sad for someone who wanted to be Robert Smith in high school, but I digress. In anycase, contact lenses have never been an option for me.
So glasses it is. And I LOVE glasses. They are one of the easiest ways to express your personal style! I’ve found that a more square lens works best with my face, though my back up pair is usually the Buddy Holly black frame look. Right now I have some brushed steel/blueish/purpleish metal frames –but I’ve had these for a while so I’m kind of shopping around for a new pair of frames – plus it’s about time for me to get my eyes checked out. So far I’ve done a fair bit of poking around at eyeglass.com and seen some really cool ones (Calvin Klein makes a really cool line) but I’m also interested in what other visually impaired butches are rockin’!
So, consider this an interactive challenge – Post a pic of you in your favorite frames (ok, or just the frames) in the comments! What do you look for when you’re shopping for eyewear?
