I’ve come to realize men don’t have a clue how irresistible they become when they play with children and babies. When a man pays attention to a child he instantly becomes way more adorable, sexy and desirable. Guys, I’m thinking you didn’t realize this.
The response women have to men when they pay attention to children must be genetic because I’m shocked every time it happens. If my husband wants to woo me, sure fixing dinner or rubbing my back is a great place to start. But if he spends thirty minutes teaching his son how to punt a football or doing math homework, without being asked, his “smoking hot score” goes through the roof. I love that guy and want to make him happy.
Consider for a moment how drawn we are to man who likes rocking a baby to sleep instead of watching CSI. Oh my Lord, that guy, no matter how e or geeky becomes the new Matthew McConaughey or Brett Favre (before the whole weird texting thing happened). In “girl world” a good father, a fun and loving dad, a playful boyfriend, might as well be People Magazines Hottest Man of The Year.
This pattern is exclusive to grown women and mothers. If one of Lexi’s boyfriends plays with her little brother, if he shows him how to make a good snowball or explains what a linebacker actually does, Lex and I both love him, a whole lot more.
If a guy doens’t know how to act around little kids, if he acts superior or just ignores him…he’s doomed. And I generally assume he’s an insecure ass. Next.
So men, you can stop sweeping and taking out the trash if you want us to love you. All you have to do is be fun and immature. I’m thinking, for most of you, this will come pretty naturally.
