romancewriter, love the Jack Nicholson reference. I totally agree. I think with my guys, I try to keep it real by limiting their excessive verboseness as well. Men say it plain. And a sense of humor is a must. I love dry wit and sarcasm, especially directed at themselves. If he can dish it out and take it, then he’s awesome.
Plus I gotta say, now that I’m getting older, I’m loving a man with the graying hair and some rugged lived-in wrinkles. But then again, I’ve always had thing for older men. Maybe it’s that maturity that comes from living life and screwing up enough to know what’s right.
