Let’s face it: There’s nothing wrong with a good six pack — and I’m not talking about Budweiser, ladies. However, (I just pushed my reading glasses up my nose) let’s rise above contemplating the abs, glutes and pecs for a moment and reflect on the other attributes we appreciate in our boyfriends.
I love to laugh. And who doesn’t love a guy who can make you laugh? It’s sort of a given for me. I’m Irish-Italian for cryin’ out loud; I’m usually either laughing or crying, and I prefer the former. Any guy who can crack me up probably doesn’t take himself too, too seriously, which is also a big turn-on.
Smart is sexy, so give me a smarty pants any day of the week. I’ll happily eat a plate of spaghetti and meatballs across the table while he speaks intelligently on any subject. Which brings me to listening…
A good listener
I once dated a guy who listened like a documentary film maker… well, actually he was a documentary film maker. But, still, listening is key. No one wants to date a monologist. And really, ladies, at the end of the day, sometimes we just wanna be heard!
Curiosity is such a turn on. Any guy who is still interested in, baffled by and curious about life in general is forever hip and cool in my book. It’s super-sexy and refreshing to be around someone who knows a lot but doesn’t know everything and always wants to learn more.
Consistency is cool
I love a guy who says what he does and does what he says. I’m all for moodiness, (I’m Moody McGee), but Jekyl and Hyde is only fun in the movies. We love someone we can count on.
So those are my five, and I could go on and on. But I wanna hear what you all think, so please comment. Tell me everything — or at least everything about your 5 favorite non-physical boyfriend traits!
