All that patient waiting - and it wasn’t even for our benefit

COMMENT: Funding PTSD programme could end up saving money

Have your say

I’m devastated. For years I’ve been labouring under a massive misapprehension.

A poll of 2,000 women has now revealed that six out of 10 dress to impress their girlfriends, not boyfriends or husbands.

So all those hours we’ve spent waiting patiently as they wail ‘ I’ve got nothing to wear!’ before trying on umpteen outfits were never for our benefit anyway. Great.

Oh, and another thing. Two-thirds of women believe men say they look good regardless of what they actually look like and just trot out the line as a safe, standard response.

Whoops, Looks like we’ve been rumbled. So next time she asks if her bum looks big in a certain dress, we can say yes. Er, any volunteers to see what happens?
