Okay. Why buy a car with a great body since, when you are using it, you can't see the body? Same concept. You see your car when it is parked and when you get in and out of it. I see my earrings when they are in their case and when I put them on, when I look in the mirror, and when I take them off.

I don't like wearing ugly things. So I get designs that are pleasing to me. And I like the way (when I look in the mirror) I look with earrings and pendants and like the cohesive presentation of being well groomed and adorned I give to others who look at me. So... that's why.

And yes, he has asked this before. Actually a couple of times in different ways.

For the same reason I wear a dress that compliments my figure, even if I can't see it all the time;
For the same reason I comb the back of my hair, even though I can't see;
For the same reason I paint the wall behind my sofa, even though I can't see (don't laugh - I once saw a house where the former owner didn't paint where major pieces of furniture were going and he didn't carpet under the beds either).

In Europe it's normal. They don't paint the place where people can't see. Suppose to be thrifty! :naughty:

I agree with all those answers + I like to show my jewels. I'm not embarrassed to say, I love when others see my jewelry.

why use a breath mint if you can't smell your own breath?

Because I can see them in the mirror. You rarely can see my earrings because of my hair but I still look at them and know they are there.

DF, yup, you have definitely posted this before.

Men are visual--they like to see everything in front of them. Women are not so visual--we like the idea of things. And we're willing to spend money on the idea of things. That, aside from engagement rings, is how the jewelry industry came to be so successful. :bigsmile:

There are enough mirrors and other shiny reflective surfaces around that I can see them fine! I also like a pendant on a longer chain, so I can look at it when I have a moment. :bigsmile:

It is normal in Europe not to paint the parts of the house that people can't see??? :errrr: WHAT??? Exactly at which part of Europe does that happen Sylvie? Because i am Greek and i've got friends all over Europe and not once in my life have i seen such a thing :errrr: :errrr: :errrr:

Uh, neither have I! I can believe the British did it about a century ago, but have no proof of this!
