Why is a turtleneck one of the worst articles of clothing you could own? Because you literally look like a turtle when you wear one. Whoever decided to add a tube of extra fabric to the neck of a shirt should be exiled from society and sent back into the wilderness of Nebraska or South Dakota, where a turtleneck is an accepted article of clothing for activities such as turkey hunting.
The person who invented turtlenecks probably didn’t go on dates… or have friends. Sure turtlenecks are warm and cozy, but they are also made with spandex, a girl’s worst enemy (unless you are Heidi Klum, and then you can wear as many spandex turtlenecks you want). Turtlenecks are normally worn during cold seasons, seasons that serve up pumpkin pie, biscuits, cinnamon rolls and cannolis. The last thing a woman wants is to be on a date and feel like she is crammed in her shirt like a sausage.
Turtlenecks are one of the most unsexy, unflattering shirts ever worn, so why would you wear one on a date? Using a turtleneck to hide your neck, which can be a very sexy part of the body, is letting your date know that he will not be kissing, touching or sucking on it anytime soon. Now women, you don’t have to dress like a skank to look or feel sexy, but you also don’t have to cover every inch of your body with a cotton/spandex/lycra blend either. It’s a good thing to show a little skin and keep him wanting more.
What are your thought’s, would you wear a turtleneck on a date?
