Things Men Do That Are Unintentionally Sexy

09 Mar

**updated list**

I think the title is pretty self-explanatory.  Sure, abs and badass cars still fire me up, but as I’ve aged, my taste has changed.  Of course, these are all things that *I* find sexy–and you probably won’t agree.

1)  Wearing a wedding ring.

2)  Staring off into the distance.

3)  Driving with one arm out the window.

4)  Leaning against a vehicle.

5)  Throwing up a hand to wave at a passing car.

6)  Opening a beer for a woman.

7)  Holding a baby.

8)  Having friends that just stop by.

9)  Respect shown in silence.

10)  Being the guy people go to for something (car repairs, hauling, advice).

11)  Dancing, especially with a kid.

12)  Coaching a kids’ sports team.

13)  Playing a sport–any sport.

14)  Humoring someone.

15)  Standing back to admire work they’ve just done.

16)  Having a dog, and palling around with it.

17)  Grabbing the heavier item that needs to be carried.

18)  Washing the car (okay, that’s sexy intentionally, too).

19)  Tapping a foot to a song.

20)  Reaching for you in the middle of the night.

21)  Building a fire.

22)  Having faith.

That is all.  🙂

    I LOVE this!!! I’m proud to say that my husband does (or will do) almost everything on this list. I agree with all of them except the one involving a dog, I’m not a dog person!!! Great post Erica! Absolutely love it!

    Completely agree with #7, 11, 16, 17! And I have to admit #1 made me laugh a little. I was upset at first that my husband wouldn’t wear his wedding ring. After hearing and seeing that his work absolutely wouldn’t allow it, I was ok with it. But before showing that to me in his employee handbook. He would tell me “you don’t want me wearing a ring”, “guys with rings on get hit on twice as much as guys that don’t”! Two of his married friends even agreed! Who would have though!? Haha!

      Ha ha, it’s true! Men in wedding rings are sexy b/c they’re pretty much just saying, “Yes! I’ve got a wife and I love her!” 🙂 I mean, this is not necessarily true in n100% of cases. And I think Russ makes a good point, but I know it sucks when work doesn’t allow them to wear their rings. My dad can’t wear his either. 🙂
