Sweat Management in Dating

Sweat is the Stooge Factor. You know, the thing that really separates men from women. Men love the Three Stooges; women just don’t get it. A few weeks ago I was loading my sweaty ’tards into a laundry bag at the gym when a cute fella walked by and started to chat with me. I cautioned him that he was standing dangerously close to the rather ripe scent of my exercise gear. He got a dreamy look on his face and said, “Yeah, smells like sweat, baby, baby.” Like I said, a difference between men and women. Men think sweat is sexy; women think it’s fairly disgusting. Maybe sweat reminds men of all the sexy ways they can get sweaty, and women get embarrassed by the same thoughts. We don’t have to convince one another, but guys beware: Women find stale sweat smelly and quite uncool. Got it? Good. Blotting papers, which you can buy in many cosmetic departments, are handy inexpensive makeup aids to absorb facial oil so you don’t have to repowder or wash your face and reapply makeup. They also work on sweaty hands. If you don’t happen to have them with you, not to worry. In most public bathrooms, those paper toilet seat covers work just beautifully. (Please use them before you put them on the toilet seat.)
Blotting papers work for you, too!
