You’re back in high school, in the hallway heading for your next class. You dodge acrobatically to avoid stepping on that jock group that always blocks the hall… and you see that girl from Algebra walking towards you. (She’s actually the only reason you even go to that class anymore.) She passes by you, and you catch a whiff of her… what is it? Subtle perfume? Flowers? Conditioner? You can’t quite put your finger on it, but she smells really good.
You’re probably going to experience this a few more times in your life. But why do cute girls smell so good, anyway? It’s every bachelor’s eternal mystery…
But now, @tarareba722 is going to ruin that mystery for you.
I’ve tweeted this before, but the best answer to every teenage boys’ biggest mystery “Why do cute girls smell good”? is my colleague’s answer: “Because you only actively smell cute girls.” It’s such an absolute and heartless answer, but that’s what makes it so good.
Even if cute girls smell good, that doesn’t mean that all girls that smell good are cute. This is another truth.
So many teenage boys’ dreams shattered all too easily, in under 140 characters.
The cute girls around me have been thinking about “how to smell subtly good to capture boys’ hearts” since Elementary school, and experiment with different shampoos and sprays and hair products. I think it’s the result of hard work.
One Twitter user commented that cute girls smell good because they make a conscious effort, but…
I just said it’s because of hard work, but then again average girls also try as hard.
So it might really be because boys only smell cute girls.(^_^;)
