Attraction towards glasses Anonymous 130032

I've always been attracted to glasses (both platonically and romantically, and think they look good on both genders), mainly because I've (stereotypically) associated them with intelligence/introversion, and also because I like imperfections on people, like bad eyesight (hence, never cared for sunglasses or glasses used for aesthetic purposes only).

And yet, I've noticed long ago that there doesn't seem to be a common term for this fixation in English; there's spectaphile, but it seems like obscure online slang, nothing with a proper dictionary entry (although in Japanese, there's terms like meganekko for girls, and others for males ofc at least). I always thought it'd be more common than it seems for me. Any other spectacle lovers?

I just call it a fetish with no shame
I also like the look of both bespectacled men and women, though I am straight
To add, I think if a person makes a decision to wear glasses instead of contacs or nothing at all, it could be a signal of their rational way of thinking, I guess?
Also not into most types of sunglasses, but I can appreciate some. And don't really mind faux glasses. Thus I am wearing them for years, having a healthy eyesight.
But the real deal comes with a flavour of vulnerabitily, hehe.
And, what I think is important too, that glasses are framing that part of a face you look at first and most, when communicating. It enchances your impression of their gaze.
And I like the technical look of glasses. Something looking not organic, not fleshy.

Speaking of stereotypes: I don't think of people in glasses as strict, it's more like a submissive image for me. Of course not for everyone, but still.

I love glasses on guys, hate them on me. I look like a female Chud.

I'm glad I could make you feel a little better. :D
A cousin of mine and I both once agreed "imperfections are beautiful," don't know how many people feel that way out there but at least there are two, so I'm sure there's more!

>>130077
When I've asked others about it, I think the theme was that they choose lens over contacts because it's easier to deal with, which in a way is the rational approach so you might be right haha. Also I worded it terribly, I like sunglasses in the right context and they're cool ofc, my point was that they aren't a permenent fixture of a person the way poor eyesight and glasses are for many, so they don't have the same charm. And good point about how it 'enhances your impression of their gaze'…

>>130080
Aww, is it because of the way the glasses look or do you think it's just the way you look with glasses in general? I've learned from hearing other people's thoughts that one man's chud is another man's angel (or woman's, for any of y'all that swing that way).

I hate most glasses wearing anime guys because of their personalities but I do like the hot ones who happen to wear glasses. They have to be the stylish kind of glasses though.

kek, same. I'm not exactly sure how, why or when in my childhood I started to associate them with those traits, but looking at my list of fictional childhood crushes, I've had a preference for smart/nerdy characters since before I had a glasses fetish. I also think that anime had a lot to do with it, and I like "both" kinds of meganes (you know what I mean) but my favorite is the shy moe kind.
I've also realized that despite being mostly straight, there are times when I feel attracted to glases-wearing women, especially if they look androgynous because they look closer to the kind of glasses-wearing guy I feel the most attracted to… the shy unmasculine ones (but not feminine).
I also have a preference for glasses that aren't considered fashionable. Popular kinds of glasses worn for aesthetic purposes only are a massive turnoff for me, such as those horrible "hipster glasses". And wearing glasses just for the sake of it feels a bit fake.
The sexiest, hottest glasses I've ever seen, at least on a 3D person, are the ones that Michael Bolton wears in Office Space, vid related (around 1:32).
I do love aviator sunglasses and the kind of character that usually wears them, they're cool as fuck and very stylish. But I generally don't feel attracted to them. Simply put, the difference is that I really want to wear aviator sunglasses, but would never wear eyeglasses. Sunglasses make me feel cool and confident, especially with the right clothes, but if I had to wear glasses I'd die of shame and couldn't look at myself in the mirror. It's weird as fuck, it took me years to get over my dumb "phobia" of looking at characters with glasses that I was attracted to (it made me very embarrassed, it's hard to explain).

That being said, it's a shame that in real life it's becoming more and more difficult to find decent cute glasses guys. They're either incels or gross pedo weebs or they want to be women. Sometimes all at the same time lmao. That's why I generally stick to 2D.

Sorry for the double post, but if you mean the stupid "sadistic" jerk kind, I agree. They're so annoying, God I just want to punch their fucking faces. Still hot tho kek

I like a lot of different types of glasses, including ones which are probably considered unfashionable (then again, I don't even know what is fashionable heh). Is it just me, or were aviator contact lenses more common in the past but in the 21st century have sorta died out outside of sunglasses? (I associate them with the 70s-90s especially, and with older folks as well.)
Bolton looks cute in that shot you're right, and with the hair and 90s setting he reminds me of younger Bill Gates, very vintage nerd flair tbh.

I think this is pretty much how most of the straight women on this website feel towards people with Y chromosomes in general… lol

I'm definitely a 'spectaphile.' My preference is towards jock/athletic types who wear glasses. Glasses is the difference between me thinking "kudos. he put in the work and got results/Very Impressive Lift There" and "damn that's sexy." It feels like a lot of guys feel pressured into wearing contacts to look more attractive. Shame.

I don't like super-chunky hipster/soy frames though, even worse if brightly colored. Everything else is gucci.

Aww well thanks. I've been wearing glasses since I was a kid since my eyesight is garbage. I don't want to wear contacts bc it seems like too much maintenance and I don't want to touch my eyeballs that much. I don't want to get laser because it seems painful. I also think I look much better with glasses than without. And I like to think it helps show my personality (introverted, nerdy interests).

This one is new to me! Esoteric but I can get behind it.

I have a friend who went the laser route, said the first day was bad, with eyes tearing up/irritated constantly and having to go to bed immediately after. Had to rest for another week and it didn't fully heal until about two months in, but, worth it in the end for them naturally. Who knows how it'd be for you, but I can understand not wanting to go for it… and on the bright side, that means there's one more bespectacled person in our world. ^^
