Beatle, I don't do dresses/skirts either. God, that shit is awful ! But I'm mechanically deficient in every way. I can't even hang a wall picture. People who know me find me to be "a typical girl" and really rather feminine. But that's why I write software for a living -- though I studied Electrical Engineering. It's not an unusual career choice really but I fumble when working with electronics and hardware, though I comprehend the technology and concepts. It's not really my thing (working with my hands), and I subscribe to "Roadside Assistance" on my cellphone plan because I couldn't change a tire if my life depended on it. And, no I'm not athletic in the least. So I run 6-miles at a pop and do yoga 6 days a week, but I'm not athletic. I didn't do shit in high school and in college. I move my ass rigorously to stay slender and feel great mentally and physically -- but I'm not talented enough to do sports. As I said in an earlier post -- the important thing is to wear clothes in such a way as to give YOU confidence. Your look is what's comfortable TO YOU, and you'll look attractive in whatever you wear -- if you are being authentically and genuinely YOU !
