Let’s have the sweatpant talk. #itbelikethatsometimes
It comes to a point in every relationship when you need to sit down and have that talk. I think that it is time that Reginah’s Runway had the talk. The talk about sweatpants. What’s up with sweatpants?
Eva Mendes a strong actress but now commonly known as the woman having Ryan Gosling’s baby was quoted saying that the only thing she would never wear in front of her sexy husband is sweatpants.
"I guess my style is feminine," she explained. "I don't really like pants, I mean I will wear them - figuratively and literally - but I feel much more comfortable in a dress or skirt. Sweatpants? No, no, no, you can't do sweatpants, no. Ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no! You can't do that." Via (Vogue.com)
If I had a man as sexy as Ryan Gosling on lock down, I would love to eat burgers and drink beers with him. But as a woman who does not own a single pair of sweatpants, I can see the point she was trying to make. To me, sweatpants represent comfort, when it comes down to it, I can’t do comfort. I can do comfort with a pair of heels or comfort sneakers with a pair of tight jeans. I almost went through a sweatpants chapter and that is when I knew that I was really lost and I needed Jesus. Sometimes I have long days when I wish I could go back home and slide into a comfortable pair of sweatpants but I think I personally would not let it get that deep.
Wearing sweatpants in front of your significant other means that you are comfortable around them and sometimes comfort ends relationship. You know, when they get too comfortable that they stop trying. Sweatpants are also a huge staple item in the America cultures’ closet. I guess every culture has their own definition of comfort.
What about the guys, do I care if they were sweatpants? I hate seeing a chic girl holding hands with a guy wearing a sports chart and sweatpants, I see it all the time and it secretly kills me. I have met who look sexy af in sweatpants. Yes, I’m talking about those grey sweatpants that show their dick prints. Which would be a girl’s version of yoga pants.
