Every Wednesday, my friend and fellow Rose Alicia Dean hosts a game on her blog she calls Want, Wed, Waste, a takeoff on another game with less euphemistic labels. Of course, we have to explain our choices. Each week, it’s interesting which guys the ladies think are hot enough to want (or wed). Many of us have grown children who, probably, would be appalled that we would do this. We may be old(er), but we aren’t dead. I remember my dad teasing my mom about her heart throb, Tyrone Power. My sister and I would roll our eyes, especially when we were teens. Sheesh. Who wants to think of their mother having a crush on a movie star?
When given a choice of three guys during Alicia’s game, sometimes none floats my boat. Other times, it’s hard to choose and they’re all lust-worthy. Sometimes, my choices are way different from the other's.
So what makes a man appeal to certain women? Looks? Character? Charisma?
Looks sure don’t hurt. Eyes, pecs, buns, hair. Women can be just as superficial as men. What about character? That means you have to know more about the person. Another interesting point some of the women playing the game mention when they chose the one they’d like to wed is how the guy is in real life. He can be handsome yet if he comes across as arrogant or treats his wife poorly, that guy is usually wasted. But give us a guy who is genuinely a good husband in real life, we all want to wed him.
Charisma. That elusive something that draws you in and makes your heart start to trip. Oh, yeah. That’s the hardest element of all.
When I play the game or add comments, I feel like I’m fifteen again, crushing on TV and movie stars. And that’s not all bad.
I blog here on the 8th and 30th of each month and Mondays on my own blogsite http://dianeburton.blogspot.com
