Wide, doe-eyed innocence. It sounds like a Lolita complex to me, but then guys can have it to, so not so much. It’s always striking how much worth people put on innocence today; it’s even scarier how successful the technique usually is, if carried out properly. We’ve all heard it, the boyfriend voice that all girls use, the one where they tend to be about a zero on the scale of loudness that they use with everyone else and at least a hundred times more polite. I don’t think that’s a question of why it works so well, though, it just does. What does puzzle me however is how an innocence based on ignorance works the same way, and with the same effect. It’s not endearing, not when you know it’s feigned, is it? I’ve even seen guys try to get away with it. For lack of a better term, I’d call it the dumb brunette technique, because they know that they’re not dumb, but for some reason they see value in it. Why? Why lower yourself to that level? Is it because someone else appreciates it? If it’s being used for personal gain, it’s not true innocence. If you know how to use it, you’re not truly innocent. I say do everyone a favor and just be yourself; you’re only helping yourself in the long run. What do you guys think?
