The Difference Between Belles & Beaux, part 1

There isn't enough space on the Internet to hold all the differences between southern ladies and southern gents, but I thought I'd start by sharing a story about my own southern beau, who often surprises and baffles me.

He recently got a haircut and while he was sharing a story about something funny his barber had said, I asked him what his barber's name was.

He said, "I have no idea."

I said, "Seriously? You have no idea what your barber's name is?"

To which he replied, "Of course not. I've only been to him 6 times. That's not nearly enough time to establish a connection where I could ask him his name."


I not only know my hairstylist's name, but we are also friends on Facebook. And I know she has a son and she knows about my job/life/etc. And I bet I learned all of this the FIRST time I had my hair cut by her.

Maybe this isn't interesting enough to warrant a blog post, but I just can't get over how differently men (or at least my southern beau) thinks about things. I'm not picking on him....I just find it kinda funny.

Do you know your barber's name? I'd love to hear about a moment when a member of the opposite sex did something that baffled you.
