When a person looks for somehting and does not see it, even though it is in plain sight.
I asked my husband to get me the scissors from the desk drawer and he claims they weren't there- he was definetly man looking- I found them right away!
when men (or someone else) look for something but can not find it because they do not look properly. Often whatever they are looking for is right in front of them.
you can't find it because you did a man look
