The pollsters at www.onepoll.com recently came out with some research reports which
"Most women claim to be attracted to tall, dark and handsome men, but a new study has revealed that facial stubble and a geeky personality are their biggest secret turn-ons."
Let's break it down and see how your humble author measures up.
"Despite complaining that it looks unkempt and feels rough to touch, the unshaven look on a man is actually a turn-on for 41 per cent of women."
"A slightly geeky personality came second, proving that women really do like a guy who knows their stuff when it comes to technology."
"A hairy chest was voted third, followed by a man who loves to read or cries at a soppy film."
Check, and um... Check! [The car getting wrecked in Ferris Bueller makes me sad every time.]
"Other secret turn-ons to feature in the top ten include grey hair, glasses and being a passionate supporter of a sports team."
Check, LASIK, and Go Blue!
"Women also prefer a guy who doesn't spend too much time on his appearance, with 63 per cent saying they would like a man who got ready quickly rather than fussing over what he looked like."
More than once I've been asked 'How can you not have a mirror in your bedroom??'. Check!
But this leaves open the question, 'Why would I care what women like in the first place?'.
"Almost one in five would never admit what they really find attractive in a man to other people."
Yep. That's just the kind of open genuine honest soul I want to spend my life with. Sheeesh...
