Optimistically Cautious

Men are like Coats

Gotta love a good analogy. First, there was LC's comparison of boyfriends to handbags on Laguna Beach:

"LC: No, I think it’s more like purses, actually. You’re always going to have that one boy that you’re always comfortable with and you’ll always kind of like, right? That’s your purse that you wear everywhere, right? Then you have that gorgeous bag you want everyone to see you with.

Jen: Yeah, but the gorgeous bag is usually an ass****.

LC: Or costs a lot of money. Then you have like those other purses that you really like but don’t really want to be seen with."

And now, an article from The Soko claims that men are like coats.

While the piece isn't ground breaking, and certainly doesn't provide any epiphanies, it's a cute read all the same (especially because I just found a fabulous coat). My favorite comparable quality:

"Ensure the Coat Really Complements You

If you're committing to a nice article of clothing, you need to make sure that it suits you and your lifestyle -- fit, colour, style, etc. Don't buy the coat if it washes you out or is too big on you or isn't suitable for an active lifestyle.

Maybe it's the style of the season, but if it doesn't work on you, you're going to be frustrated. With regard to relationships, why invest any further if you know he's not the person for you? Longevity and quality are key - for coats and relationships."

My only nitpick: I would expect the optimistically ambiguous 'he's out there' byline to bring out a knee-jerk response of cynicism in most women.

Still, I've got the coat, and a girl can't have everything, right?
