well, my guy is, anyway, and from what i’ve been reading here, so are a lot of other guys.
i spent most of my puberty years tweezing dark hairs from my chin and my breasts. i would get up 40 minutes early every day so that i could go through the whole routine before school. it was emotionally exhausting to keep this a secret from my family and my friends, but i didn’t know what else to do. what i wouldn’t give to have known about all the options at the age of 13!
i met my husband four and a half years ago. i kept my secret for almost two years before i decided to give laser a try. at that point, i had little choice but to tell him. after all, it was a major expense and he had the right to know. it would be difficult to disguise the ‘sunburn’ look, as well.
i am one lucky girl, let me tell you, because my hubby was 100% supportive. he held me when i cried and told me that i was beautiful. he said that he did not care about the hairs, but if they bothered me this much, then money was of no importance. whatever treatment i needed, i could have. over the last two years, he never once made a negative comment about it. despite us having some financial difficulties for a while, he never suggested that i give up the treatments.
my husband is a really great guy. he deserves everything good in life, including a sexy wife who isn’t ashamed to show her face in public. it makes me feel good when a stranger says that my husband must be a very lucky man, but i feel even better when my husband says that he’s lucky.
to all the women out there who are too scared to tell your boyfriends/husbands about your hair problems, i have one suggestion: give the guy a bit more credit. if he loves you and is deserving of your love, then he will understand. it hurts, but it will feel 100x better afterwards.
