The Appeal of Mr. Clean-Cut

Posted on

In college I had braids, dreadlocks, cornrows—even the Kid ‘N Play high-top. Back then it seemed girls all had that “bad boy” in mind they wanted to date. Maybe that is why I was doing the crazy hair. Now I’ve grown up and tend to date girls who have figured out what they like in a guy and who have probably been burned by that bad boy they thought they liked. Hopefully they are more interested in a clean-cut guy who will treat them right.

Less work goes into the look than you would think: five minutes to shave my head every other day. My face takes 5 to 10 minutes. I have a superstition when I am in a tournament: I can’t shave until the end. By then I get the “Okay, now it’s time to shave, right?” from girlfriends. I understand kissing me might not be as fun with the stubble scratching them.

For cologne I use Polo Romance when I am home, or Crave by Calvin Klein on the road. The girls I attract expect someone who is more shy than someone with long hair. Maybe I give an image of innocence. But my image is who I am. Friends like Andy Roddick make fun of me. He says if I were ever to do anything bad, no one would believe it, and I’d get away with murder.
