For the Love of...Men Showing Romantic Interest


In her book Superflirt, sex expert Tracey Cox (best last name ever for a sex expert, wouldn’t you say?) states that, “Women choose from no less than 52 moves to show men they’re interested. The average man chooses from a maximum of 10 to attract a female.”

These moves include parted lips, flared nostrils, and an “eyebrow flash.”

But since we are (mostly) women reading romance novels written by (mostly) women, we likely believe there are so many more ways for a man to show his interest. Examples might include (genre depending) offering her his wrist to drink blood from, refusing to take a hit out on her, marrying her when her reputation is compromised, insisting he accompany her to the local pet shelter so she can pick out yet another mangy mutt, or beating the crap out of her so she can defend herself against a real enemy.

What’s your favorite (fictional) way for a male to show his interest?

@CherylSneed--sometimes they DO clean the toilet, but then they spend the rest of the day patting themselves on the back. So totally not worth it.

Holding your hair when you worship the porcelain god. Saying you look cute in the morning when your mascara has gooped into the corners of your eyes and some of your hair has decided to go for the lovely porcupine look.

That over-protective thing that practically buzzes through the air with testosterone.

@Cheryl/Sneed -- forget about it. Get one of those scrubbing bubbles plasters and break out the rubber gloves cuz even if they do it, it ain't gonna be done right so if you pat them on the back, they'll think they did great and it will be another 10 years before they do it wrong again.
