This might sound weird, but I seriously never thought I had a type. Not until tonight when I was oogling over Stuart Scott thinking how good he looks in a suit. Now that much I knew, I knew I liked men in suits–when I got my palm read an she claimed I would marry a man in finance the only good thing I could pull from that is that he would wear a suit and read the paper. The two things I found as common threads between literally every single man I have ever dated (or oogled) is that they have been athletic and articulate.
LeBron is a no-brainer. He looks so good in his clothes and speaks so clearly and eloquently (and he didn’t go to college so its not even about formal education, necessarily). I am obsessed with him. Then I floated through my old flames. Deeds was definitely intelligent, well-spoken and played soccer…P2AD is literally one of the smartest people I know and is a runner. E knows a lot about a wide-assortment of things, crazy well read and does MMA. I could go on but we’ll just stop at the big3.
I even made myself laugh because I’ve had a recent thing for Common, I traced it back to seeing him with Queen Latifah in Just Wright my thoughts went something like: Ooooh he’s athletic and he likes thick girls, holla! I loved that movie, and that’s really not even my kind of flick, to be honest and while I know that “Common” wasn’t the one I found so attractive, it upped his stock in my book anyway.
And its not about them being cute, or fine, or even sexy…the attractiveness just skyrockets when a man can teach me something–be it mentally or physically.
I’ve been thinking that I want to learn something new. Maybe get back into piano lessons or learn how to play tennis or get into spinning. Just something. I’m craving a challenge.
Anyway so I suppose its good to know what I like…well its good to be aware of what I like. Its also very interesting to see that I have already been attracting and entertaining this type of man, even though each of them has been very different despite their similarities. Just interesting…
