Steve Harvey’s new book seems to focus on looks, but that doesn’t mean you have to look like Tyra Banks to catch a man.
The comedian stopped by the Borders Books and Music in downtown Washington, D.C., to sign copies of Straight Talk, No Chaser for eager readers. Although Steve was a little late arriving to the store, he made it a point to apologize to his fans before he sat down to give out his autograph. What a gentleman!
We did notice his patience beginning to wear thin with readers who took a little too long to snap pictures of the author with their phones or cameras. At one point, he even got up and asked everyone in line to practice their picture taking before they got up to the table.
“Didn’t I tell y’all to practice,” he joked when it was obvious that fans were milking their minute with Steve.
Somehow, despite everyone crowding his table, S2S was lucky enough to snag a few minutes with the funnyman-turned-love-guru to ask a few questions about Straight Talk, No Chaser (hmm…that title seems a bit familiar…interesting).
Our first question was about looks, which the book seemed to emphasize as key to attracting a man.
“Men are aesthetic,” Steve told S2S before giving a little nuance to that statement. “Now, men like different things, too, so everybody don’t have to have a face full of makeup. Everybody don’t have to have on stiletto heels, but if that’s what a man like, that’s what he likes.”
And Steve warned that women shouldn’t expect a man to change his taste to what she embodies. Really, he suggests that you just find a man that likes you for what you naturally are.
“Just because you don’t do it, doesn’t mean he’s going to change his mind about it.,” said Steve. “Some men don’t mind weave; some men don’t want it. It just depends on the man.”
