i've always been attracted to large, "manly" men... okay, that sounded weird, what i mean is i've always been attracted to tall, built men who are manly-like and fulfill most of their gender stereotype roles (i.e. they're big, brave, strong, protective, have hair on their arms and legs, and aren't afraid to get dirty. okay, i just described the brawny paper towel man.) anyways, most of the guys i've dated have been at least 6'0" or taller. quasi, for instance, is 6'2", about 225 lbs, and manly. i'm 5'4", 107 lbs., and girly, so the juxtaposition is fairly great. and while quasi is one of the most well-dressed men i know (he really should just own banana republic and nordstroms because the guy has the entire men's department of each respective store hanging in his closet), he doesn't wear bright colored boas, head dresses, jewelry, or gel and spike his hair. - point is he's not "flashy," no pun intended. (keep reading and you'll see where i'm going with this.)
as a matter of fact most males aren't flashy. human males, that is. males in the animal kingdom, on the other hand, are a whole different story. males in the animal kingdom are very flashy and ornate. for some reason i find this totally interesting. i may be alone in my interest, but why do the males get to be the pretty ones?? all the
colorful, flamboyant males are on the left; plain, boring females on the right.
geckos: the male is the cool lime green one
see what i mean?? yes, i know, i know - the males are colorful and bright in order to attract females. i watch enough national geographic to know that. i just wish it could be the other way around. hmmmph!
