For the most part, I wear perfume because I like to feel confident. Yes, I like to catch people’s attention, and even attract men. To insight pure lust? No. Not in Church, never in Church. I could go and do that in a bar, and I’m not normally into the bar-scene. When I go to a bar, I drink soda. Not too much into alcohol unless I’m having a wine-cooler at home with my family.
However, it would be really nice if, when my boyfriend visits from New York, he thinks that I’m sexy. Not “stripper” sexy. Just physically attractive. I don’t want my body to imply that I am an absolutely dog of a woman.
I hope that my remarks aren’t too biting. I’m just a little worried lately. I have this large collection of perfumes, and I really enjoy them. Some of the perfumes have a seductive scent, but I like that kind of smell. It’s rather enjoyable to me, and makes me want to breathe it in. Therefore I wear it. For instance: Cool Water for Women. It smells fresh and clean, as though I’ve just gotten out of a shower or a rainstorm. I really like that one. Or most kinds of musks: that sultry smell is not used by me to attract men. I really, really like it.
Perhaps I shouldn’t have used the word “sexy”? What I meant is, yes, to get a man’s attention, for single men to look and say, “Hmm, pretty.” Not to bring up lustful thoughts like, “I wonder what she’s like in bed?” “Pretty” or “Nice” is what I’m after.
Then again, I want this mostly from my boyfriend. I swear, we’ve only been dating for three months, and he lives all the way across the country, but one day, I’m going to marry that man.
