This was is response to the thread on why a woman would even consider a house that wasn't her first choice:

One way to look at it is this: haven't you ever seen a couple pairs of pants (shoes, etc), and thought, WOW! I really like this pair, but this other pair is pretty cool, too. Then you look at the fit, and the first pair just doesn't fit the way you imagined. So, you try on the other pair, and it fits.

Good luck to all the PNMs! Just remember the pants, and realize that you need to go with the way something fits, not the way something looks at first glance. We all have styles that we love on other people, but look nasty on each of us. May you find the house that fits!!!
This is somewhat random, but this analogy reminds me of the book The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Basically, this group of four friends can all wear (and look awesome) in the same pair of jeans even though they're shaped differently and have very different personalities. Thinking about it more, that's exactly what it a sorority is supposed to be about...a bunch of different people coming together through one common thread.

/me being geeky.
