I Heart Boyz...
I don't care how tall they are, or what they look like, or how fit they may, or may not be.
I. Love. Men.
There are so many things that make men different from women - what's *not* to love, really? Men are typically strong, full of "useless" trivia and knowledge, and they usually have more stamina for labour intensive work than us chickens do.
Take the time I went sea kayaking with some friends. Stupid me. I got in the double kayak with another girl. A freaking weakling, too! Long and hilarious story short? We almost capsized, she gave up paddling about 1/4 of the way through the excursion, and by the time we were 3/4 of the way done, we had to flag down a guide to help get us back to shore because I just couldn't do it alone anymore. Yep. You guessed it. A boy.
I love that men are so easily pleased, so simplistic in the way they think, and typically so direct in the way they communicate.
I love that most men are somewhat technically inclined - don't ask me to hook up a surround sound system for the love of God!
I love the way men who golf swing their clubs at an average speed of 90kms an hour and the noise of the club head making contact with the ball...watching it sail 150, 175, 225 or 250 metres straight!
I love men who run, men who cook, men who will watch the occasional chick flick with me, and men who can fix. things. for. me. Or at least try.
I love putting my head on a man's chest and just feeling taken care of and safe - whether I am 5 inches taller than he is, or he is towering over me. Whether we're lovers or not.
I love stubble. I totally get that I am in the minority here, but I do. They can grow it, and thanks be to Christ I can't. And I think it's sexy...a sign of masculinity. And I like the way it feels against my skin.
I love men who have, and maintain, friendships, and I love men who are good fathers. This, to me, is hugely attractive, and speaks volumes about who they are, without really having to say a word at all.
Men who read? Hot!
Men who are funny? Sweet suffering Christ.... there aren't enough words for this.
Men who think *I* am funny? They're heads above the rest!
I love the way men smell and feel and sound.
I love that they usually love long hair, fingernails and curves on a woman.
Men who freely tell their friends, me included, "I love you" are awesome.
I realize that some women will read this and think "But don't men get on your nerves, too!?" Hell yes they do! Of course they do... but so do some women. So aggravation isn't gender specific...and there are lots of things I love about women, too.
But I'll blog about them another day. Today, it's all about the Boyz...
Have an awesome day everyone!
