My feet have never been this bad. They're so rough I swear I'm scuffing the tile flooring in the house as I walk. I really need to get them rejuvenated but I hate going. I think what I really need is a nail salon that's male friendly.

I want a salon with nice earth tone colors on the walls. A TV or two playing popular daytime programming. Maybe some soft music. Cucumber water would be so nice and refreshing. Maybe some cucumber slices over the eyes to help with puffiness. And I'd love the option to get a calf massage afterward.

I know places like this don't exist, but I can dream that someday men will have a place to go to and still feel like a man while they're there.

Oh, and busty pedicurists would be great too.

Maybe scratch the cucumber over the eyes in that case.

Go anyway! My DH finally went with DDs and me several years ago. He had troll feet. The technician truly brought out an electric sander for his callouses. He now goes on his own AND gets manicures. And no more sanders.

Why not open a place? You could add income to your teaching salary or if it's successful retire. You'd being living a leisurely life.

DH could use some pedicure care but he wouldn't consider it, sad to say. He went to my spa to buy a mani/pedi gift card for my Christmas gift very reluctantly. My friends saw him come in and thought he had an appointment! They gave him a hard time when they saw him.

I've only seen one guy at my spa and he was pretty gnarly. He could have used his own man-spa.

My DH would never go. His feet are gross. We bought a foot massager for ourselves for Christmas. I'll be sure to scrub it out when he's done. He would never get a massage either. He has had the chance for free and wouldn't do it. My son and his wife are doing a couples massage for their anniversary. I think that is cool. I've seen a couple guys where I go but most are old.

I have gotten one pedicure in my life. Last mid May DD22 made an appt for both of us the weekend of her college graduation. She had been there a few times before. I have only had 3 manicures in my life, too. (But I've been getting monthly massages for 2 years now )

I don't know what the heck they did to me. The toenails on my big toes where covered with white marks once I took the polish off like 2 weeks later. It is finally at the point to being almost grown out! I did not have these marks on any other toenails . I wasn't overly impressed with the whole thing

Man up and put your damn shoes on. The poor floors don't need that kind of abuse!

For the holidays, my husband bought me a facial/massage package at a local salon and spa. The day I went, I swear there were more men than women there getting pedicures.
