A Man In The Sack!

Updated on August 16, 2011

A Man in the Sack.

Come on girls this hub is just for us, but I guess the guys can have a quick peek too.

I’m quite an old doll now, and have had my fair share of love in the past, but let’s face it, once you have seen one, you have seen them all.So ladies what do we adore about our men folk?

I will go first. As a young woman I loved a man who had dark hair and brown eyes, but they are very rare because the usual combination is dark hair and blue eyes, so I had to compromise. Not such a big deal, but the one factor that they had to have was height. I always felt too powerful standing over a short guy. Now I am only 5’4” so to be honest it wasn’t that hard to have my wish granted. I loved powerful shoulders and a hairy chest, a moustache was always a bonus. I always fancied a bloke with a moustache. A nice looking bum in a pair of tight jeans and I was in heaven, and they had to smile, not just with their mouth but with their eyes too, that was very important. But other than that I couldn’t have wished for anything more. I wasn’t superficial, so handsome is as handsome does. But the most attractive feature a man could have was the ability to make me laugh. I kissed many frogs in favour of laughter over lust. Now I don’t want you to think that I don’t like handsome men, every girl likes the eye candy, but to me then and now, that is all they are. When we are young we love to be draped on the arm of a man who has sex appeal, and if he has money, well that is just a double wammy. We dress up to the nines and strut our stuff, shadowing smug grins as we parade past our friends and love rivals, thinking “look at us, arn’t we just the cat’s whiskers? And we were even more proud to be sporting the beautiful love bite, rubbing it in our friend’s noses knowing that we had a real treat last night! Well that is how I felt anyway. But with age, not only comes wrinkles, and we have to fight the battle of gravity to stay in shape, but we look for different, more important things in our partnerships.

What I wanted as a young woman, I could not keep up with now. I want a man to be a man, and to be honest, the good old fashioned smell of clean sweat gives the old grey matter a little nudge. No ladies I haven’t lost my marbles, I still love a beautiful smelling aftershave, but at times that just does not cut the mustard to the musky smell of a real man.I want a strong pair of arms to feel secure in, a little bit of weight to make me feel slim. I don’t mind the old grey hair, but those eyes still have to make me go week at the knees. I am not adverse to a good jump in the hay, but love that broad back to spoon into. And, I still want to be made to laugh. I need a little understanding now because I can lose my keys or my purse occasionally, and I love a man who can cook. But the most important thing that I want from a relationship now is a soul mate to intensify my senses. Take me to the moon and back and let me feel the intimacy and urgency of love much more than when I was young. A little romance every now and again would be lovely, and spontaneity is desirable, because I don’t want to spend my twilight years bored. And of course the most important ingredient of all of these, still is laughter. I want to die laughing.

Well ladies or gentlemen who will be the next one to share a man (or lady) in the sack. Spill the beans my friends and keep the love coming.

      LOL girlfriend, ahhh those were (are) the days. Age only gives us a brighter twinkle in our eyes. Who says we can't still appreciate a true man's form. Your secret is safe with me, as I am sure mine is with you. Tehehe

      Annette...This is precious and too much fun! In my youth with all my conceit and flair......only gorgeous men would do. My eyes made my selections......and oh, yes, of course the muscular build was a preference....

      now and then, I got really lucky and snagged myself a beauty with a brain, as well....but something major always had to ruin it! My flaw is my genius....these men liked the dumb ones.......and we all know why that is!

      As time went on, I looked for more. More of the vital parts.....cast shallowness aside and went for the spirit. Sense of humor is high on my list....patience, generosity and of course....A PENCHANT TO ADORE ME! And by gosh.... I hit the jackpot! ....UP+++

      Hi Rosemary50, welcome to my little Hub world. Laughter is the nicest thing to see in a guy, and if he is romantic, what a bonus. You are one lucky lady. I am afraid that my man has forgotten how to make me laugh and as for romance, he does give me his last rolo lol.

      I found you through the interview with Jo and so pleased I did.

      I found my soulmate at 54 and he is just perfect. Blonde with touches of grey, blue eyes, reasonably slim, best ever in the sack, cooks and tidies up. But most of all he makes me laugh, makes me feel secure and shows me every day that he loves me. He writes good poetry too.

      Worth waiting for. I guess I'm one lucky lady.

      A wonderful hub voted up

      Hi Sally, hey I like it, I didn't think of cowboys as being romantic. Where have I been all of my life?

      I'm with Truckstop Sally. How about one wearing just a cowboy hat and a big smile? You got me on this one Blue. We may be old but we're not dead. LOL

      As the song goes, "Beautiful, beautiful brown eyes, I'll never love blue eyes again".

      Well -- if we are dreaming -- how about a cowboy that is smart, romantic, and kind. I can do the cooking. Ha!

      always exploring, thank you for stopping by. I have been in reflective mood recently and usually find that I can come up with a load of old twaddle at times. But I share your thoughts entirely, I would love a good old fashioned decent man. I wish you luck hunnie. x

      Cardisa, Hi girlfriend. You are so much in my team. We think alike, only I am getting to old for many of life's challenges now and just want to settle into those old comfy slippers again. You will make whoopie in your marriage sweetheart, with that imagination and open heart of yours you will be happy. x

      You know what ? I have a friend who is the greatest and the sack is not in the equation. A good hosest man is worth a million bucks. A friend, who could ask for anything better. Thank's, enjoyed.

      Well Annette, no matter where we come from most women desire the same things.

      There are two worries I have as I embark on a lifelong relationship with a husband to be:-

      1. I worry that he is not romantic or spontaneous enough to keep me from getting bored

      2. I worry that he will be boring in bed in the long run, when it's too late to do anything about it, as he is sometimes now.....don't tell him I said that.

      Writer20, sometimes the good looking ones are very shallow and tend to date the good looking girls to keep up their ego. Give me a regular guy any day. They get my vote. At my age looks are so less important. Thank you for sharing. x

      I always found good looking men who only wanted one date. One I remember had a tiny bubble car that open from the front, now he was a cute but he would only drive me home from a dance with just a good night and see ya. I often wondered if any was wrong with me then.

      I found what I call a regular man that I wrongly married thinking it would so good.

      That was it for the English side of the world. I found a warm loving husband here in the U.S.
