Eye Candy--No Calories, Lots of Commitment
Man-watching—or should that be necessary observation of masculine form and behavior?—is something we women enjoy and practice more than we’ll ever admit. But while for many it’s all about “checking out” his great abs, nice buns, muscles, etc., I’m a firm believer we ladies can learn a great deal—and avoid a lot of headaches and heartaches—if we put our observations into proper perspective. Try figuring out what his body language is telling us. The shower-wet skin on his Size Elevens pointed toward the door may be revealing something other than the fact he wants to carry us off to a seductively private party for two. Will he eventually bolt for the front entrance or for the boudoir and more time between the sheets with us?

Here are some easy-on-the-eyes examples of men worth watching, in more ways than one. What do I find appealing? Read on and more than my thoughts will be revealed.

I’m interested in a man who…

Is ready for whatever life tosses at him. Prepared to discuss any problem and make a decision upon which we both agree. Focused on fidelity and done with playing the proverbial field.

Would go through Hell and high water. No man will steal my heart quicker than one who promises to have, hold, and protect those he loves from harm. Menlikus from TO HELLE AND BACK AGAIN defines this role.

Goes to the mat—and not just at the local gym. Flexing of muscles is fine, and appealing, but a man who can problem solve and remain persistent in the face of opposition gets and keeps my attention.

Looks as good from the rear as from the front. Face it, we love seeing his handsome face. His winning smile. Eyes that flash at the first stirrings of lust or danger. How he keeps his posture perfect and invites his woman to share the details of her bad day. His shoulders are broad, and he loves brainstorming.




Is not afraid to bare his soul as well as his body. While men aren’t prone to talking as much as we women, I prefer a man who doesn’t brood. Silent types, men who never open up and share their deepest desires and fears, won’t win me over. Spilling every secret isn’t necessary, but always withholding feelings and retreating when he needs to be holding the field in a conversation with his significant other is a sure sign he’s better off a part of your past than your present. Charles Galletiére of TORMENTED meets this description and more.







Works as hard as he plays keeps my body temperature higher than a day spent in the desert sun. His work ethic is as strong as his physique. He remains passionate about his profession and the time alone he spends with the woman of his wildest fantasies and life. A lust for living and giving his “all” for his romantic relationship define this guy. Jack Dodson from ROUGHRIDER fits this profile.
