I'm a short hair kind of girl. But I had "longer" hair when I nabbed my husband. And he likes long hair on women. Sometimes I wonder if he feels like I played bait and switch on him.
Of course I'm not worried enough about it to grow it out. In fact, I've learned a little nugget of information that might give some long-haired women pause.
One of the things rapists look for when choosing their victims is long hair. Especially pony tails or braids. The reason? It's something easy to grab onto that they can use to pull their victims into their vehicle. (This is in cases where the victim doesn't know the attacker.)
After I learned this tidbit of information I quizzed my husband. "Studies show that rapists almost never select victims with short hair. Why do you think that is?"
"Is it because they look like guys?" he responded.
Wrong answer! (He has mentioned that my hair sometimes reminds him of guy 'dos. Frankly, he's not really up on style. My hair is NOT a guy cut.)
The one consolation from the exchange? Hey, at least I know my hubby doesn't think like a rapist. (I knew that all along.)
