so, i’m writing this post re: JB’s last post. i USED to love Jake Gyllenhaal. goddamn it.
i’ll admit that given my personality, my interests and my communication style, the kind of guys i’m into usually surprises people. the first qualities i look for in a guy that may interest me are intelligent, clever, humble (but still confident), and a chin. (seriously, am i right? how many otherwise totally acceptable guys are lacking one chin and carrying a pair of man boobs??) i also like tattoos. bad shoes are a big turn-off.
the other thing that people realize about me and guys is how much of a pussy i am about a) showing interest, and b) closing the deal. i am. i am a huuuge pussy about it. i have an immense fear of rejection, so i pretty much refuse to put myself out there. back in about 7th or 8th grade, i was camping with my best friend, her older brother and his friend. we were all looking at stars one night and she and her brother walked off somewhere and left me and his friend. i made the move and kissed him, and he totally shot me down. i was mortified. things were weird the rest of the trip, he avoided me and i was humiliated every time i saw him all the way through high school. obviously, i was scarred by that experience. so i’m incredibly hesitant to put myself out there when it comes to guys i like. even, as -Z- and JB will attest, when it comes to “nerd boys.”
personally, i’m usually turned off by guys that are too conventionally good-looking. Hugh Jackman, Jason Lewis, David Beckham, even Brad Pitt don’t do much, if anything, for me. i realize they’re “attractive,” but i don’t need fresh skivvies after seeing their pictures or anything.
i like guys like John Krasinski, Barack Obama, Edward Norton, Javier Bardem–guys that seem like there’s more to them than an obsession with boobs, a business degree, a fat neck, a light blue collared shirt and a subscription to Maxim. i look for the guy that is The Nerd in the cheesy high school movie, then The Popular Girl owes him a favor and gives him a makeover and he’s super hot. i want that fool before he got the makeover. oh, and he’s gotta be tall.
even when it comes to sleeping with a guy (hopefully more than once, if he’s good enough), i’m looking for intellect, personality, wit, and decent looks. apparently, even to the people who know me best, that constitutes a nerd. but i need a nerd with throwdown, which, as my good (gay) friend Jon reiterated for me, “will be hard to find.” yeah, like a unicorn or something. i know.
but does anyone else have an acquired taste in men? i’m ok with it if i’m alone on this, more nerds for me.
p.s. sorry this post was all about me.
