Male On Monday - Courtesy is Sexy
I read back over a bunch of Male on Monday posts (I know, torture, right?) to make sure I was approaching this topic from the right, ahem, angle. I was struck by a common theme—most of the posts start out with an overview of the uncontestable, factual beauty of the guys, but then the move on to the specifics. The things this guy does that make him irresistible. I thought we could explore that theme today.
This weekend, I happened to catch him in The Proposal and my appreciation for Ryan Reynolds shot straight from empirical appreciation of standard male attractiveness to OMG, I love him. Swoon.
His character held the door open for his girl.
I know. I know, it’s not a big thing. It’s not even a thing I necessarily always appreciate. But he was tall and lean and handsome and then he reached over the heroine’s head and pushed the door open so she could go through first. Oh, baby. Casual good manners. I love it!
Mr. Ryan Reynolds, I approve. (Yes, I do know Ryan Reynolds held the door open because it was in the script, but still. You get the sense he’d do it anyway.)
