I've come to admit that when you turn 30 you start to get a little weird. Nothing too weird, but I've noticed that as a 32 year old bachelor I find certain things sexy about women that I didn't when I was younger. I'm not claiming these are all super-important personality traits, but they still factor into my overall character assessment, nonetheless.
The pattern I'm noticing is that I'm becoming more attracted to the cerebral aspects of women, things like...
Says no to Soda
I'll give you a $100 when you catch me saying, "Dang, that gorgeous, intriguing, health-conscious, cosmopolitan well-read woman sure looks sexy drinking that cola".
Owns a Library Card
Who even has a library card? Smart chicks with a sense of community who read so much they'd prefer the free and unlimited plan, that's who.
Her Dog Obeys Her
I am too old to pretend it's cute when a girl's dog is a moron. Your pet is a reflection of you, and if your Rottweiler sits when you snap and point, you have my attention.
Refrigerator is Responsible
I know the 22 year old TR Slyder would be disappointed to know that I'd scrutinize a woman's refrigerator and pantry, but it happens at this age. Like the Anthelme Brillat-Savarin quotation says at the beginning of Iron Chef episode, "Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are."
[note: I'd be happy to judge you anyway, even if you don't tell me what you eat. Just letting you know the offer is on the table]
In college I wanted a girl's hobby to be tanning or kick boxing or something that made her hotter. Now I'd prefer something productive that won't diminish over time. I don't even care what, just something that isn't shopping or television-based. Gardening, knitting, art appreciation, reading, yoga, I'm open to suggestion.
Laid Back and Elegantly Simple
Lately I've realized I'm good at putting stress on myself, so I'm better off with a mate that won't exacerbate my stress. A partner can add to the stress or they can add to your tranquility and I prefer the latter.
Reading a newspaper on a Sunday in a ponytail, PJ pants and glasses is a lot sexier than watching a Real Housewives marathon while wearing lingerie.
Your Ex-Boyfriends are guys I can Respect
Wait, so your last boyfriend was 25 years older than you and still owes you money? Oh man, that really IS funny, you are right to laugh, but it begs the question: Where did you put my shoes? I'm trying to get the hell out of your apartment.
