Men, take note: These things are WAY hotter than being fit.
For me, the coolest thing a man can have is a good head on his shoulders. You don’t need to woo me with rock-hard biceps or a strong core … you just need to be able to talk to me, baby.
In other words: Intelligence wins over any looks you can throw at me. I get totally weak in the knees over a man who is able to keep a great conversation with me, keep me interested, help me learn. I find a smart man to be the coolest of all.
Here are ten things that men do that totally make us swoon, Every. Single couples . Time.
Have a deep, passionate interest in something.
I don’t care whether this interest is even something that I share. I don’t give a hoot about cars but my boyfriend is crazy about them, and he stares at cars in the street like many men do with hot women. And I totally love it. I love that he has a deep passion and interest for something and that he rattles off car facts not to impress anyone, but because he’s genuinely interested. And it’s super hot!
Read — of your own accord!
If a man has a veracious appetite for books, it’s an immediate turn-on. It means that he wants to get lost in a good story, or learn something. He wants to feed his brain. And that kind of investment is better than any time in the gym.
Use a rich (but not pretentious) vocabulary.
Maybe it’s because I’m a writer, but if a man uses the perfect word in the perfect context, I’m immediately weak in the knees. But it has to be genuine: if you’re throwing around big, pretentious words just to make people think you’re smart, we can tell — and the effect is the opposite.
Have an opinion on worldly issues.
I don’t mean that you must have a defined stance on every single war and foreign relations issue in the entire world, but knowing what’s going on beyond your city reflects a concern for and genuine interest about lives outside of your own.
