Do you have a type? I mean, when you get a crush or you date someone, do they fall into a certain type or category? For instance, there are some girls I know who are very attracted to music men. You know, the type of guys who sing or are in a band. On the contrary, I know people who fall for a particular set of appearance. Say, this girl only goes for tall guys or this girl only goes for guys who are athletes.
I know this puts attraction or dating in a box but it is quite interesting to me. I wonder, what triggers these types? Are they hard-wired in the DNA or are they acquired based on what qualities society values?
For my end, I am attracted to men who are really good with one particular thing. I don’t care if it’s arts, computers and technology, math, or whatever. As long as a guy displays mastery or brilliance in one area, I’m easily sold as an admirer. Like I mentioned before, competence is hell sexy.
Physically, I do have a type. I never planned it or thought about it but the mental relationships I run with celebrities reveal everything. It doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate qualities outside of this line. I’m just saying, most of the time, these things are what gets me to notice.
I won’t provide you a laundry list of these qualities but I’d tell you a few of my crushes and I’m certain you’d get the picture. Think Chris Hemsworth, Jamie Oliver, Michael Phelps, George St. Pierre, Blake Shelton, Ashley Banjo, and Adam Levine. Not bad at all, right girls? 😀
How about you, what’s your type and how did it come about?
