Gay Men: What is the one thing you love about other men?

Straight or gay, any race or ethnicity, fit or fat, all across the world, tell us one thing you love about men. It could be a look, a trait, an attitude, or something else.

Men just tend to have thicker skin and are more emotionally stable. Not always, I've met some tough women and plenty of fragile men but overall as a more blunt no bullshit personality type men are much easier for me to deal with.

I love women, but I wouldn't want to be straight personally.

I will agree with R3 and add that I like the way men think. Again, it's a gross generalization but men don't bullshit with clusterfuck mindgames like some women do when they talk to you. Men literally think differently. Men, on average, say what they mean or they don't say anything at all. You don't have to "decipher" and interpret the hidden meanings and analyze the implications or subtle cues the way you have to with women.

Men are just naturally hot (facial and body hair, muscles in all of the right places). I love that men can go into the wild (without shaving or showering or grooming) and come back looking even hotter. Yum.

Their humor.

It's weird but I really melt whenever I see a man being great with his kid. Gentle, instructive, nurturing, playful -- it just gets to me.

What do I care if a guy is a good father? It's not like I'm in the market to reproduce with someone.

Physically? Big, beautiful, manly hands do it for me. Along with every other square inch of a hot guy.

men are male.

well, the men *I LIKE* take a cuff on the jaw and walk away laughing. women are more reflective about things like that, and that's a good thing, but that is what I find ATTRACTIVE about men I like.

It has to do with your own father. Was he gentle and nurturing with you?

r22 -- I'm not sure that's true. My father was far from the nurturing type, but I'm also really drawn to men who are good, patient, nurturing fathers. And I'm sure you're going to say that I'm drawn to it because that's what I DIDN'T have. I just think it's sexy to show responsibility and patience and concern for others. A good looking, good dad drives me wild.

Rich men never have time.

by Anonymousreply 3510/29/2013

What I love most about men is their overall lack of drama. (Note: this does not apply to our resident mincing prisspots.) I have plenty of female friends, but at the same time I am VERY glad I don't have to be married to one of them. Even though most of my oldest group of friends, the ones I've known since college, are now in their late 30s and early 40s, the women in it STILL act like fucking high schoolers sometimes, whether it's ridiculous overreactions to perceived slights, bizarrely competitive relationships with their female friends, or in some cases their *complete* inability to *ever* MAKE UP THEIR GODDAMN MINDS.

And don't even get me started on the ones who are single, childless and FREAKING THE FUCK OUT about their "biological clocks." Actually, never mind: the married ones are just as bad, because for some reason the majority of my female friends chose to hold off on having kids until at least their late 30s. They practically *seethe* with jealousy at our one friend who is apparently as fertile as a dog in heat, and popped out THREE kids -- STARTING at the age of 41 -- after getting pregnant EACH TIME in under six weeks, without any artificial help.

And REALLY don't get me started on the one who, at the age of 42, STILL cannot fucking decide whether she's bi or gay, never mind a ten-year-long series of epically disastrous relationships with men. She's trying to get pregnant, too -- in her case with a 26-year-old fuckbuddy, of all things -- and has had three miscarriages thus far (each of which has sent her spiraling into a months-long depression, as if NO ONE ON EARTH can understand her unique and special pain ... of losing a pea-size fetus, never mind that 25% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage).

What I DON'T love about other men (in this case, gay men) is amply seen on this thread: an utter obsession with looks and cock size.

Emotional distance. Women, no matter what they say, are controlled by their emotions at all the wrong times. All the professional women I have known are like that. Men can, if smart and self aware, be more reasonable. That is why nelly queens are unattractive. They remind me of high school girls. And their emotions were all over the place.

When I was in high school one of reasons I turned to boys was lack of drama. Clean, dirty, stupid, smart-men don't let themselves get to entangled. They are free from chaos.Freedom is a very attractive quality. I think they reason people hate gay people is because we represent freedom. Freedom when conformity and social pressure. They envy us. And so want to do us harm.

The smell of their armpits and the urgency of their sex drive. Looks have nothing to do with it.

by Anonymousreply 5110/29/2013

I think a two men together make each other happier and stronger without overshadowing each other.

When a man is in a relationship with a woman, like a succubus she will exhaust him of his creativity and vitality, leaving behind a dull, uninspired shell of a man. But he subjects himself willingly to her. Such is the power of the pussy. I have to admire her abilities thought. Women almost always have the upper hand in a hetero union. This is the reason I find heterosexual men to be so uninteresting.

The one thing I have always found fascinating is that women have never truly been able to use the power of the pussy for their own gain in any truly meaningful way. Probably because women, really don't like each other.

I just like the way guys carry themselves. I saw two seemingly straight guys on the LIRR last night, happy to run into each other and just talking, laughing, bullshitting about the Series or bars they know...

Relaxed and friendly. I imagined that later they kissed and sucked each other off, just two buds who were digging each other.

Not demi-gods or unattainable. Just normal.

Masculine proportions, especially shoulders to waist. I can appreciate it in almost any man. A big V-taper and I'm putty in his hands.

Fascinating that so many of the responses here denigrate women instead of just posting what's great about men.

If you asked a bunch of straight women what they LOVE about men, they wouldn't mention women at all because their attraction to men doesn't have anything to do with, or depend on, hatred of women.

by Anonymousreply 5910/29/2013

I like men who are straight, married and cheating on their unsuspecting wives with me.

That's the only type of men I like, because they have proven their virility by marrying a woman and fathering children, as opposed to pathetic faggots like me, who are there to serve real men like only whores can do.

I love it when a man slaps me during a hard, violent fuck session and tells me "cunt, not even my slut of a girlfriend will do that!". It makes me feel great!

R59- I find it amusing that women still seeany form of opinion about them to be demeaning.

R52 I agree with you. All the married guys I know are controlled by their women. They would be loathe to admit it, but it is true. I would never be controlled by another man. We would be equals. Men and women can never be equals.

I like that men think like me and get me. I find that I perplex or confuse women, they don't really understand me. I like that guys don't have as much hangups about sex. They just go with it.

Strength, emotional and physical. My father was a man like that. He never complained or hid behind fear, whatever he needed to do he did it. Also he still showed vulnerability and kindness when it came to my sisters and me. That is what exactly I want in a man. Oh, and a big dick and bank account is great too!

R59, you silly and deluded cunt, women spend most of their pretending to prepare themselves to be attractive to men while actually thinking about how they'll look for other women. AND you're right that they wouldn't talk about other women if asked what they like about men. They would spend all their time talking about themselves, because that's all women do, while pretending their fountains of love are anything but projectile yeast infections from bad hygiene.

Men are more likely to get right to the point and not play mind games with you. Women are more manipulative, usually in a passive-aggressive kind of way. And women break out the water works when it serves their purpose, but otherwise claim they want to be treated as an equal.
