She was only asking! Though I can see his POV as well, if she does something she hates she won’t be able to blame him.
It’s toooo late…..you gave your two cents…..Now suffer as she shall use said coins to place on your cold dead eyes for not ……*pick something…anything….really*.. .. ..
You can’t give two cents of opinion here anymore since the penny is now obselete… you have to give your 5 cents’ worth and the Cdn gov’t is considering canning that coin too.
Really….Oh how will you pay for the tax on that bag of milk….
‘Round up/down to the nearest dime.
That’s one of those questions women ask that just leave you wondering “Why did you even ask? You’re going to change your hairstyle anyway no matter what I say.”
And then they change their hairstyle, no matter what their hubby/boyfriend/whatever says.
Well played, Scott!
You fool! You’ve already fallen into the trap merely by answering with a spoken word.
Stock up on that Advil, Scott – I see some sleeping on the couch time in your future…
I think Scott should do something about HIS hair- he looks like a bad Elvis impersonator..
ALWAYS say you love their hair, no matter what they do to it!!
I think Marla is only asking cuz Val changed her hairstyle and is wondering to do the same. I wouldn’t seeing her do up her hair for work just once and see if she likes it.
She may be ONLY asking for his opinion, but I bet he knows it’ll be followed by more of the average ridiculous questions that men are asked at in their marriages like “Does THIS make me look FAT?” LOL.
I totally understand why she asked. Some guys have a real problem when a girl changes her hair and aren’t attracted to them anymore. However, since he doesn’t have a problem with it, I’d say staying out of it is the best thing he could have done. Smart man!
All I can say about appearance-related questions is “ugh.” Why do they ask it if there’s no right answer? They want an opinion, but not necessarily an honest one… I mean, a good answer is: “I’m going to be honest here. I love you just the way you are, and I don’t want you to change a thing.” Then change the subject to avoid another question.
I honestly doubt Marla’s going to change her hair. I mean, Val didn’t change her hair, just how she styles it, which may have something to do with how Cooper likes it. Remember: Cooper always liked Val’s hair down, and in their intimate scenes, she’s always had it like that. If Scott likes Marla’s hair the way it is, why change it to something neither of them may like? I totally see where he’s coming from – he’s probably made mistakes before and knows that apathy is the best approach to avoid all the possible negative outcomes. It isn’t a positive outcome, but I’d take neutral over negative any day.
Btw: Who remembers “Blonde Marla” aka Zoe?
It’s not apathy, it’s experience. He doesn’t take a stand and shows support for whatever she wants she can’t be mad at him without being the one entirely in the wrong…avoids a fight before it starts and she has her answer even if she didn’t get the reply she was seeking
Let me rephrase it then: “Apparent apathy.” As you said, he doesn’t care how she does her hair – he’ll like it no matter what. I… didn’t explain it well, did I? xD
So yeah, he’d like it unless she ends up bald like Stuart or something… but honestly, I doubt she’ll change it. Maybe grow it out a little more or cut it shorter, but… nothing extremely drastic. Or, like with Val, merely changing how she styles it.
I don’t see it as apathetic at all, I believe it’s more of logically exploiting a loophole in her question to not have to deal with the inevitable fight.
No matter how she styles it, and even if she did end up bald, he knows not to answer the question one way or another.
He says she will look good with her hair changed, she comes back with “what’s wrong with my hairstyle now?”; he says don’t change a thing, she comes back with something else to complain about her hair until he says she should change it reiterating the “what’s wrong with my hairstyle?” question
Fair point. I know you have to be supportive or that’s grounds for an argument. If she senses that he actually doesn’t like it, she might try something else.
Knowing Scott, he’s trying to be smooth here and avoid damaging the relationship, so yeah, it’s not that he doesn’t care – it’s that he DOES care, he just doesn’t want anything trivial to get in the way of their relationship. I concede – “apathy” was totally the wrong mindset. Yeah, he just doesn’t want to make it HIS issue – if it is solely her issue, it won’t get in the way of their relationship.
Right. Bad theory on my behalf. I’m not exactly “experienced” with this xD
I do! I do!
Marl- Do you like my hair?
Scott-Sure I do! I like the way it looks like you backed into a wall of wet paint.
