Uhm...I already have a boyfriend. How about that excuse? And...he meets all the requirements I set (how about that for convenient?). [Big Grin]

I think I meet these descriptions quite well:

Tall (6'1")
Large build - Football player
Long hair - down to shoulders
Facial hair - a faint mustache and beard
Eyes - emrald green
Personality - Caring, kind, accepting

There's only one problem ladies, I've got a BOYFRIEND!

I think this says a lot about what girls truly want. [Razz]

So Tom, would that be a typo in your .sig? (Kick vs. kiss..) [Big Grin]

Edit: Hmmmm. Appears someone removed their .sig after posting....

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I had put that sig in back when I registered who knows when, and, now looking at it, it was quite immature sounding. Oh well.

Oh, and if you were making some kind of sarcasam, I didn't quite get it. Sorry, I'm a little out of it, because I'm in the middle of posting on 2 boards at once.

And thus we come around to the perennial problem...the good ones are either taken or gay. [Frown]

Of course, good guys in couples will sometimes become good guys in singles, but that takes patience. Which is why I will now give my standard advice to all love-lorn men and women: stop looking and accept your singleness. For some reason, this makes you more attractive. Or, at least, that's been the case for me...

Dang, why do all of my internet crushes end up getting boyfriends. And how can I turn this into a business opportunity? [Big Grin]

Edit: Seriously, what Xanthine is saying is so true. Stop looking, and you are acting more like yourself. Acting like yourself tends to be a much more successful method than trying to be Mr Right (or Miss Right).

Nah, it's not prescriptive. The question was what do I want in a guy, not what do I have to have. So I listed all the qualities I find attractive. Consider it a "wish list". Besides, I would never name a cat Nigel. [Wink]

Hey, I resemble that remark! Except for two critcal factors - I recently had my long her cut (at the request of my best friend), and don't have a boyfriend. So that's where I'm going wrong! Though strangely, I keep being asked if I'm gay by girls... [Confused]

Also my eyes are deep brown [Razz]

I agree...or at least that's what I'm coming to learn. A favorite book of mine that articulates this very point is "God on a Harley" by Joan Brady. There is something about being comfortable with yourself exactly as you are, vs. being what everyone expects/wants you to be, that is powerfully attractive.

Physically, I don't really have 'rules' for men I like, but rather 'preferences:'

I prefer him to be taller than me, by a couple of inches, because there's something great about standing up on your toes and tilting your chin up for a kiss. I like light eyes; blue, gray, or green. Short or no hair. A little bit of well-kept facial hair, like a goatee; it's a nice feeling when he leans in to say something in your ear. Strong, but not jacked...I like the wiry type, with strong hands.

He's got to be ballsy, unafraid to say or do whatever he feels like. A Loki-style sense of humor; mischief is a must. Well spoken, thinks before he opens his mouth. Able to counter dead baby jokes with Micheal Jackson jokes. Good taste in beer.

(Reading back over it...an apt description of me boyfriend. Hm. Guess I done did well.)

No no no GG,

Everyone *knows* that snake/alligator/lizard/etc. should be poached in white wine and herbs or coated in a sticky BBQ sauce and flamegrilled...

You shouldn't cook white meat in beer* - it just doesn't work, beef and game and other "red" meats go with red wine/beer*/sherry...

</bad taste>

now runs away very fast...

*that is real beer/ale not the lagers that you "furriners" insist on calling beer... Even the damned frogs and krauts know to call their brews lager or lager beir...

PS. There isn't anything wrong with lager, though I detest most US brews and Labbatts SUK... but it is NOT beer... [Big Grin] [devil wand]

IS THAT CLEAR (like your so called beer?)

[Wink]

I'm with you Serenak. Guinness drinker here.

For some bizarre reason I meet almost none of the qualifications listed anywhere on this thread, but before I was married women asked me out in droves. Look at my picture (I'm the guy in the middle). GQ material I AM NOT!!! When I met my wife she could have had any guy she wanted. She was, and is, young, redhead, intelligent, sexily voiced, understanding, very pretty, caring, funny, and artistic. Guys used to slobber over her. When she asked me out I seriously thought it was a trap of some sort. I acted accordingly. So in the end SHE had to work to get ME, an amazing paradox that's lost on no one who witnessed these events. To add to the mystery, I've only been asked out in my life, I've never once asked a woman out. And I've dated lots of intelligent and beautiful women. I don't get it.

Yes, there's a point to all this...

A friend of mine watches my behavior towards women, and says that I almost always get responses that any guy would kill for (i.e., I apparently break the ice eloquently?!?!!?). I don't notice this, but he swears it happens. His theory? I act as though I'm not interested in them, but I talk to them like human beings nonetheless. He showed me the movie "Tao of Steve", claims that I'm subconsciously "a Steve", and that women go for this to a degree I'm not aware of.

My question and tie into this thread: is this theory a bunch of hooey? Do women pursue that which evades them?

...it seems like hooey to me.

Ewomack ~ I would agree with you, in that women like a guy that will treat them like a friend, rather than someone they're "interested" in right off. Women with intelligence and independence are looking for guys who will match their intelligence. Nothing sexier than a smart guy. Congrats on your wife, by the way, she sounds wonderful.


As for what I look for in a guy?

Emotional:
* intelligence (above all else)
* witty/sarcastic
* computer geeky
* video gamer
* comic book reader/dorky RPG card game player/other geeky hobbies (someone who shares my hobbies)
* not intimidated by my intelligence or video game skills [Wink]
* does not mind my Lego collection or my obsession with a Rubiks Cube

Physical:
* tall
* thin
* pale
* dark hair
* light eyes (blue/green)
* longish-floppy hair is good

I'm a bit picky...but those traits are not the ONLY ones I look for, they're just what I generally prefer.
