EYES ON THE PRIZE

I think it's safe to say that women check out men as much as men check out women. I know I do.

I tend to do the ups-and-downzies when he is busy doing something. Like tinkering with a cash register. Trying to organize a burrito going gracefully into his mouth. Or juggling a newspaper, a coffee, and a briefcase at once.

Forgive me, but I find those moments take a man from cute to hot. When men are just "doing stuff". Everyday stuff. I like watching their fingers rifle through the pages of a graphic novel excitedly and their gestures when striking up a convo with a homeless man. Folding their wildly patterned undies at the laundry. Petting a random dog outside the video rental. Squeezing fruit unnecessarily at the grocery store.Weird I know, but completely adorable on their part. It's the quirks that make a man sexy, if you ask me.

I'm a quiet checker-outer. I like forearms. Beards. Tree-trunk legs. Soft eyes. Regular guys. Non-model guys. I love when a strong-looking man has a warm face. You have no idea the things I would do to you.

I don't really know the point of this article I'm writing, other than to let the men out there know that we women love it when you are just being you. It can be quite captivating and completely endearing.

At least, this woman thinks so.
