** I love it when she lets me be the hero......
** I love the half-asleep smile and semi-cuddle I get when I kiss her on the forehead to wake her up in the morning.
** I love the look she gives me when she knows she's right, but lets me think I am anyway.
** I love the way she grabs my arm while walking down the street to say "you're my guy--and I'm really good with that" without a single word.
** I so love the nape of her neck, which carries that uniquely feminine essence...

*grabs tissue* HOOONNNNNNKKKK!!!!

I up..............when I...........think of........such things.

aww this thread is making me go all mushy

- love they way they smell with that clean skin and fresh t-shirt smell they get

- love the way they dont enter into the 'dramatics' of it all

- love the way they can say what I wanted to say in one sentence and it took me half an hour

- love the kindness from when they go from manly to all soft around you

- love the way they are respectful to your friends just because they are your friends

- love the way their eyes light up when they love you and they get those lopsided grins when they're happy

- love the way as someone else said when they smell your hair or perfume and tell you how much they love it

- love the way their voice sounds when your head is on their chest and they're talking

- love the fact they are stronger, and can do different stuff better than us. [ and admit it when we can do some things better than them]

- love the way they get so excited when you've made them their favourite meal and they go out of their way to tell you

- love their sense of humour and I even like the corny jokes

- I love it when they notice the small nice things, little things about yourself now and then

I like to see the softer side of people. It's good to remember that in spite of how things turn out or what happens, we can still have our soft side.

I love how soft a woman's skin is.
I love watching a woman rub lotion on before bed.
I love a woman's collar bones (odd I know).
I love the way a woman's hair smells and love waking up with it all in my face.
I love how a woman is so sexy when she's all dressed up to go out but she's easily 10 times sexier once we get home and she's got her hair in a pony tail and is wearing one of my old hockey jerseys. How they pull that off is a total mystery to me.
I love that a woman will let me do things for her even though I know she could do them herself (open a jar, kill a spider, get something from the top shelf, etc).
I love how a woman's finger nails feel on my skin.

I love it when she hugs me and I feel allmighty just because she's on my side . Sometimes women don't notice it but you give us a lot of strength just with your presence.

I like a woman who is so soft and sweet to the touch, yet is forthright, knows what she wants and lays it down for me to fulfill.

I like men's voices and how they can make things better just by holding you.
I like that this thread was re-opened by a man and the first few posters after him were also men. Thanks guys.

OK...not sure how much sense this is going to make (but I know what I mean)...I love the way certain men have known how to touch me...not too rough, or hard - but not too soft. That's a big one for me.

*I like how soft and smooth her skin feels when I'm washing her back
*I like how she puts her hand on my knee or arm around my neck when I'm driving
*I like her giggles
*I like the way her eyes stare into mine when I've got her face in my hands right after
we've kissed
*I like how she teases me when I'm trying to dance
*I like how she brings me a glass of water when I'm mowing the lawn
*I like the way she trusts and believes in me

Hmm, who is she? Where is she?

bucsgirl- I like a man that knows who he is and understands women.
I realized a long time ago that women are more emotional while men are mostly visual.
The best men know this difference and go out of their way to step outside of what they see and recognize that the key to our hearts is to listen to us and care ;)
They may not really understand what's important to me or why, but they make the effort to understand and that means everything.

(yes I did a thread search, haha) There are those of us that just generally speaking like the opposite sex. To those of you whose delicate sensitivies may be offended, apologies are offered in advance.
I like it when men are tough and strong and yet can be soft and tender, too. I like the soft touch of a big, strong hand that holds yours gently. I love seeing a dad walking with his little girl, or picking her up and kissing her cheek. I like to see a man grab an umbrella and hold it over his lady when it's raining or run to get the car for her.

I like you the way you are. I like your intelligence. That look you have when I kiss your neck or that spot that you like. The fragrance of us after three days of love making…. The wetness you have without even touching you. The desire in your eyes when I know I am the only man for you. That smile that you have of being fully loved and satisfied. The way you walk …. The way you move….

The Way You Move…

In 2009 it was named the 22nd most successful song of the 2000s, on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs of the Decade.

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep… wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you…. The one who turns to his friends and says, ‘that’s her.’” Am I that guy?

I have no idea what I’m talking about?

Ooooh, so many things!
I love the sound of his voice and the way his mind works, like, those 'why didn't I think of that?' moments ;)
his broad shoulders
the way he can say something and it lights me up
how smart he is
how capable
watching him at work, admiring how hard he works
I like watching him windsurf, play ball, 'insert his sport here'
when he's really passionate taking a stand about something, and of course passionate about me too
and those kind little gestures he does day in and day out-whether for me or others
I love those deep convos we have where he 'gets it' or we can finish each other's thoughts
I'm profoundly touched by his wisdom and leadership, take charge attitude!
I learn to check myself at times too through his humility
I love seeing him laugh
I like the fact that his friends are awesome good men too and we're all on the same page
Yup, love 'em, adore 'em!!

I love so much about you.
How soft and gentle you are,
but firm and strong when needed. I love what you like to
talk about, and how soft your voice is, how you smile, how you read
the label on directions, how you sit so straight, how you like being a girl,
How you find the time to be so perfect although,
you may not feel you are. How soft your skin is, how sweet
it smells. I like kissing you, leaning in and kissing your neck as your
silky hair flows around my
face and I take in your scent. How your little hand fits so perfect into my big strong hand.
How we drive somewhere and you sit over in the passenger seat and look over and smile at me.
and I know you are just happy to be with me for no reason at all. How you have uncanny insight
to all my troubles, how you like to spend time making yourself pretty in the bath room...
the clothes you wear, how your hips move as you walk away from me....
how when I pull you close to kiss you you slip in and fit so perfect, how you make me feel like I am your hero,
how I love women, I could go on and on.
Any man who does not see his woman or women in general for the amazing gift to us men, is sadly missing one of life's most greatest joys. ( That and the love and joy of their children).

Any man who does not see his woman or women in general for the amazing gift to us men, is sadly missing one of life's most greatest joys.

But it's not at all sad if he is simply incapable of attaining it, of course, because if he says that, then, he's a pathetic whiner who gets burned at the stake on POF forums (sarcasm). I hope I am not too whiny, despite my less than stellar dating prospects, but I think it needs to be acknowledged that if someone can't find love, that IS a sad thing, and in some cases, it may be due to laziness and not willing to do what it takes, but in many cases, men face PROFOUND difficulties in measuring up to what women expect or in finding that needle in the haystack girl who is right for them, despite doing everything they know how to do. I see a contradiction when someone is complaining about "whiners" and then basically "whines" on their behalf.

Basically, the question for me is just about achieving the "greatest good for the greatest number", where every human being has, in theory, an essentially equal share in this to anyone else. I have no concern for fitting into bizarre dating cultures. Conformity is for sissies. So, I have zero concern about whether someone is "whining", EXCEPT if it is or is not conducive to the common good. To bring up what men may be missing out on is, I would think, somewhat relevant to the common good.

I do think women are a gift to men, but they are also human and not perfect. I used to worship women in general because I was blind to their all too human faults. Just as many guys are not nice people, there are many women who are not nice people. Of course, many men, including myself, have a soft spot in their hearts for women, which can make this hard to admit at times. Now, I only worship a select few women. I still think there's nothing in the world better than a kind, intelligent, and beautiful woman, but not all women fall in that category (beauty is a small thing, but necessary, to some degree for it to work romantically). I might add that the fact that she is not interested in me makes her no less magnificent, but I'll be damned if it's unnatural if it should--heaven forbid--make me a touch sad from time to time.

The thing that makes me appreciate women, no matter what, though, is that they commit less violent crimes than men. If they kick our ass at not committing crimes, then, they pretty much kicked our ass in general in my book.

bucsgirl- I love the touch of a working mans hands, it gives me chills.
I love it when they open doors and kill spiders because they know I hate them.
I love it when they listen to me.
I love it when we know each other and accept each other as is.
I love it when I feel safe in his arms.
I love it when he sings with a good song, even if he can't sing.
I love the way he looks at me and what I see in his eyes.
Is he here? I wonder......

I love the way my boyfriend smells, the dimple in his cheek when he smiles just right, the little noises he makes when I massage his bald head after a long day, and most of all how happy he looks when he sees me. His whole face lights up and it makes my day every time.
