Reminder that there's a glasses thread on /img/!>>>/img/15141
>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).
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.
