Ah, the male mind. What woman can truly comprehend its complexity? As an author of romance, I certainly try – quite a feat.
For instance, I would once describe, in great length, a woman’s attire as she strode into a room and the handsome, alpha hero got his first glimpse of her. I wrote from the male POV (point of view) and I’ve since learned that he wouldn’t likely notice how her lilac-colored blouse complimented the hue of her violet-blue eyes.
Some men might, yes. But most men – particularly alpha heroes – would not.
To illustrate this point, I conducted my own personal survey. That’s right. I emailed my grown sons. I asked them if, the first time they saw their significant others, they noticed the outfits the young women wore (color of shirt, slacks/jeans, etc). My sons’ replies are as follows:
“Mom, are you kidding me?”
“Mom, is this for one of your books?”
After I replied that yes, it was, a second reply was not forthcoming.
