10 Things Women Love About Men
This article isn't really meant to be a list of things you need to do to impress women; this is a list of things you probably already do which we find endearing and, in some cases, sexy! You may not understand why, but that's ok -- if you were able to sort out our mental reasoning, we wouldn't be nearly as exciting as we undoubtedly are! Ladies, if you have anything to add to the list, feel free to do so in the comments.
1. You're so cute when you sing along with the car radio.
Especially when you get all hush-hush the moment you realize we're paying attention. You're especially cute when you're singing Christmas carols or other holiday songs. You're even cute when you're singing theme songs to cheesy 80s telly. Granted, you're not that cute when you try these things after a few pints -- but you're very cute when sober.
2. Kids look great on you.
Get out there and push that baby pram and every women on the block will coo at the both of you. Tell us you're babysitting your brother's kid cos you just love 'im so much and we'll probably offer to help you make your own right there on the spot. Seriously, men and kids are cute. See Kindergarten Cop if you doubt the truth of this.
3. It's sexy when you drive stick.
Admittedly, I may be the only person who gets turned on by this, but I love watching a man shift; especially if he's driving well, driving fast and driving a nice car. Probably has something to do with seeing you in a position of power and control. Yumm.
4. You're so sexy when you open the pickle jar for us.
Annoying though it is for us to have to struggle with something as stupid as a pickle jar, we get all soft and mushy when you swoop in and open it for us. "Let me get that, darling!" will bring you great rewards at bedtime if you play your cards right. Ditto for grabbing whatever it is on the top shelf that we can't reach.
5. We love it when you put your hand on the small of our back.
Doing this whilst walking through a crowded club or restaurant is very much a turn on. To be honest, it's probably a turn on no matter when you do it. Erm, as long as the woman in question wants to be touched by you -- it could be pretty annoying, otherwise.
6. You look so sexy in sunglasses.
I don't know what it is about sunglasses, but men look good in them. And you look super sexy when you wear them on top of your head. Honestly, this look works for nearly every guy imaginable as long as you've got a pair of sunglasses that suit your face.
7. You're a hero when you help little old ladies.
I love to see men stop and help a little old lady (or man) with something. Groceries, opening a door, picking something up after they've dropped it -- anything you go out of your way to do for an elderly person is fabulous and endearing.
8. You look sexy when you fix things.
Doesn't matter if you're fixing a leaky faucet or building a bookcase -- you look sexy when you get all into being manly like that.
9. You are studly when you do something better than us.
I'm very good at shooting pool and can only think of two men I've dated who were better than me at pool -- and being such made them both infinitely more sexy. If you can do something better than your woman, she might complain about it, but she probably (perhaps secretly) loves it.
10. We love watching you play team sports.
Rugby, soccer (football), softball, basketball, (real) football -- we love to watch you be one of the boys. Doesn't really matter if you win or lose, we love to watch the adrenaline flow. Invite us to your games more often and you'll see how much we love this.
