Look, I’m willing to believe that men today are more HIGH MAINTENANCE than ever before. But I’m not willing to believe it’s gotten THIS out of control.

–According to a new survey, men spend LONGER getting ready to go out than women.  The survey found the average man spends 75 minutes a day showering, shaving, and styling himself.  The average woman spends 70 minutes.

42% of the men surveyed use a hair dryer.

88% groom themselves DOWN BELOW at least once a week.

98% plan out their outfits in advance.

–And 76% end up trying on a few different things before they settle on what they’re going to wear.

–The survey also found the average man owns four pairs of shoes, five pairs of jeans, 17 shirts, and 11 pairs of socks.  See the complete story from the St. Helens Star.

Reminder – Valentine’s Day is almost here.  Take her or him to the first ever Sweethearts Comedy Soiree!  A night of comedy, food, no host bar, and love presented by Adair Homes.  Go to our Soiree page for all the info.
