- Excerpt from THE MALE POINT OF VIEW
PART 2: 8 H'WOOD BACHEORS TELL "WHAT A WANT FROM A WOMAN"
- Movie Stars, August 1967
PETER DEUEL: "When I think of the term 'nice
girl,' it brings to my mind one who can be compatible with me
and my desires and interested in how I feel. While I don't believe
in the double standard intellectually, it's a different story
emotionally. I do feel that if a girl has committed herself to
a relationship with me, then I must in turn commit myself to
her, in so far as being faithful. The danger that exists in getting
romantically involved at too young an age is that early teens
haven't had the opportunity to develop any real values. The cold,
cynical, clincal outlook kids have today destroys the lyrical
beauty and aesthetic aspects of love.
"Platonic relationships can exist
if neither is romantically interested in the other. This is very
rare. Usually one is hopeful that the friendship will in time
ripen into something that is non-platonic. It is possible, though,
to have a very healthy, non-romantic relationship with an ex-girlfriend.
"I can be turned off at first glance
by a girl's hairdo. Those over-teased, stiffly sprayed styles
are terrible. I like a soft, natural hairdo that I can touch.
"Women should be honest. Why hem
and haw and make excues when you have a date with someone else?
Tell the guy the truth. He'll respect you more for it."
(Pete starred in ABC's Love On A Rooftop)
