What do women look for in a man? He should be handsome of course but not too good-looking (too tiring fighting off other women). He should have a sense of humor, life is more fun when you’re laughing. He should be employable, so you can follow your dreams together. He should be someone who will hold me in his arms and I’d feel safe. Some ‘nice to have’ traits: good kisser, firm build, fun friends. He might even go boldly, where no man has gone before.
Surprise! I’m a Trekky (yes, it’s in the Urban Dictionary). Yep, Captain James T Kirk was (in my books) all the above. I don’t think there’s an episode I haven’t seen. We recently got a channel playing all the old re-runs and dang….I still think he was cute. OK, nerd alert! Of course I’m happily married now, in fact Mr Boomdeeadda is also named James (that’s a weird coincidence), but James T, you were my first crush.
Footnote: If I wasn’t so experienced (aka vintage) the NEW Captain James T Kirk might be my NEW crush.
