Defining "Hot"

Wednesday, December 12, 2007
I thought it was time to define what makes a chick Hot. Now I understand that there are plenty of guys and girls out there who may think that the arm candy kind of Hot is sufficient for their needs. If that's the case with you, then good luck and Godspeed, but I wouldn't define you as a Smart Man or Woman. The subject of the discussion isn't someone who would be defined as Coyote Stupid, but someone you would consider Hot year after year, decade after decade.

For me, it's all about what lies between the ears. My Man must be Smart, funny, decent and a person of integrity. Everything else is negotiable.

This is true for me because these qualities are timeless, and ageless. The whole beauty thing - not so much. I think my Smart Man is Hot no matter what he weighs, whether or not his beard is getting grey, or whether or not he loses his hair. He'll still make me laugh and think, and I'll still admire his decency and integrity. Now that's Hot.

What makes your Man or Woman Hot?

Hmm... good question.

I think the 'hottest' thing about my hub is his incredibly kind, soft heart. Sure, he's smart, and has a ton of integrity, but it's the marshmallow inside that is what's most appealing to me.

He can't, however, do home handyman tasks to save his live. Just no mechanical sense or visual spatial perception. Oh well... I can do them or they can be hired. :D

Jeri, think of it as contributing to the economy. Since your Smart Man can't do those tasks, you're stimulating the economy by hiring some other gal's Smart Man.

Or some other guy's Hot Chick. Don't want to be a sexist...

I haven't yet found someone who is smart enough to recognize the hotness that is me and who is simultaneously hot enough to appeal to the smartness that is me.
I started to list off the things that I find "hot" but I'll whittle it down to adventurousness and thoughtfulness.

Anne, better to be picky now than disappointed later. I can't see any reason for you to settle.

She just is. I can't explain it any better than that.

Anne, what Janiece said. Establish standards and stick to them.

Tolerance and Patience. LOL!

Seriously though, if Donna can put up with me for over a dozen years, and not want to (constantly) hit me with a frying pan, that's totally hot.

And I love her. Nothing's hotter than a woman you love.

Shawn, I think you've hit the nail on the head.

Thanks, guys. It's something that I've tried to keep in mind over the years, but it's easy to forget at weak moments.

Anne, that's because only Smart Men are allowed on this blog. Hee!
