Real Men Are

(female half here)

I caught a report on the Today show that said that “metrosexual man” is out and now “retrosexual man” is in. Evidently, the majority of women surveyed have said they prefer a guy who might have a few extra pounds/love handles, who doesn’t groom himself like a diva and is basically like the majority of men who around today ….. a typical regular guy.

Yet another label …. Don’t we have enough of those as it is …? But I think it’s interesting that now it’s “vogue” to be a little on the flabby side and be a normal, everyday human. The majority of us all ready knew this. Lots to be said for “love handles” ….. I know I love them! I think most women are like I am ….we want a regular, down to earth guy with a realistic version of a body and a brain to match. That is what makes a guy sexy!

Hollywood and the media has hyped the unrealistic view of men (and women) for so long that now they think that having and desiring a regular, normal body is a major news flash…….. *shaking my head at that one*

I love that one! You should put it on a T-shirt.....

You are my idea of a perfect "retrosexual", Scott. Down to earth, great sense of humor, a brain that would scratch any mental itch, cute .... all of which makes you sexy. And long hair to boot ...... always a bonus in my book!

Don't cha just love when the media makes a "startling" discover like this .....? Doesn't it kind of make you want to say to them, "This is news to you ....?"
