Bubby's website was reviewed in USA Today!
I have just started a romantic relationship with a wonderful man. I like him very much and have just one concern: he has some grooming issues -- nothing a quick trim of his nose and ears and eyebrows couldn't remedy. This is a very sensitive issue, as you can imagine, and I don't want him to think I am rushing in to change him or criticize him. This is very minor in the scheme of things and I can get past it, but I wondered if I should raise the subject, and if so, when?
Thanks for your advice.
Your complaint of this young man you are seeing is very minor. I do think you should choose the right moment and you might use your father as an example. Tell him that when your father goes to the barbershop or (perhaps he goes to a men's grooming establishment) they always clip his nose and ear hairs. Then very innocently you ask " do they do that when you go for a haircut?" That will make him start thinking about his grooming and will do something about it. I am surprised that a young man has that problem. It is usually the problem older men have to deal with.
So here's for a good looking guy.
