I’m wondering/hoping if some of the things guys typically worry about (like the make of our car or the size of our boat) actually aren’t a big deal to most women. Once again, I’ll start off the conversation and share a few things most men couldn’t care less about:

1) Your handbag. As a cyclist and clothes junkie, I have no right to judge anyone for making extravagant purchases. I just hope all of the women who dropped the equivalent of a year’s tuition at a state college on a Birkin realize that most guys are actually turned off by oversized handbags, which many of us unconsciously associate with high-maintenance divadom. Blame Samantha.

2) Your muscles. I will unashamedly own up to digging women who are in shape. However, I always giggle when my girlfriends flex their biceps and expect me to act impressed. Aside from A-Rod, most guys are kind of grossed out by Madonna’s ripped physique. If you enjoy pumping iron don’t let me stop you-it just doesn’t do much for me.

3) Your ex. It’s not a jealousy thing-I just don’t know what you say when you bring him up. So don’t.

4) Your salary. I do care if you’re pursuing your dreams. I don’t care how much it pays.
