There's nothing I love more than a confident man. Nine times out of ten, I'm more attracted to the man with his chin up, unwavering gaze, and delicious smile. Add a uniform into the equation, and it might be a done deal. Attitude reflects leadership and no woman wants to be with a man who can't hold his own.
Seeing a man in his specialized uniform (suit, military, police, etc) the assumption can be made that here is a man who won't back down at the first sign of opposition and will have no issue handling his AND your business. But is that confidence or a well-trained and secure mask? Are women letting themselves be deceived by the rigorous and defensive training that mold these men into the ideal soldier or savvy professional?
Before I begin this next point, I want to say having an authoritative man is NOT and I repeat NOT a bad thing. As long as he doesn't impinge on your basic human rights I don't see the issue. There's something deliciously exciting hearing your man command/demand/assert his dominion his household. Now I'm not talking S&M scenes or your man peeing on your leg to show you're his property but the primal feeling and security of knowing this man is not to be messed with. Now I might be a little cuckoo to delight in this attribute of the military uniform. But it is so darn sexy!
Are women tragically attracted to the man in uniform because he allegedly lives to Serve & Protect? Or is it that having your own personal hero is the ideal destiny for the average woman due to films like Sleeping Beauty or Deliver Us From Eva. The idea of a noble hero is constantly bombarded into our heads; and women leap at the imagery casually displayed before them. It's not horrible to believe that our future Edward Cullen is lounging outside our bedroom window, in fact I relish the idea; but c'mon now are we really gonna believe that every man that puts on a uniform was a former boys scout???
Uniform = J.O.B., so is the specialized uniform the reason we become all doe-eyed? You'd have to live under a rock not to know about the benefits provided for the Uniform and their dependents. Here is a man who has a job, guaranteed salary/benefits, and everyone supports what the Uniform stands for. This is financial stability, mandated goals, stability at its best. Now the new question is, are women really that calculating? I'd like to say no but there are songs/images/films dedicated to gold diggers for a reason.
I would haphazardly guess that all women have raised an eyebrow or two at a man in uniform but do we subconsciously discriminate against certain uniforms; for example the garbage man or the mailman which are decidedly less romantic to dream about, but couldn't we find our happily ever with them? Remember ladies, in the real world everyone eventually becomes a civilian and that uniform becomes more of an accessory than necessity.
I'm not sure what every woman thinks or dreams of when they see a man in uniform. What I do know, is that clothes don't make the man (cliché I know) so we should choose our men based on more than their clothing.
