I never really understood the concept of having a type. I never felt a preference of whether a guy had blond or brunette hair, or blue or brown eyes. My friend always said it was important to her that her boyfriend be athletic and blue-eyed. I mean, sure, that sounds like an attractive combination, but so does a blond-haired surfer type. I have always been open to any shape and form of guys, but I finally landed on what I believe to be my type.
I’ve dated and talked to a wide variety of guys over my 18 years. I’ve been with jocks, dorks, and outcasts. I’ve liked blonds, brunettes, and redheads. I’ve met both sensitive and rational guys. And I’ve been attracted to them all, but only one has really worked out so far on a level of me truly liking that person.
I don’t need the hottest guy around. I don’t need an athlete. I want the smart, conservative, somewhat dorky guy. Those are the ones I’m really attracted to! I appreciate their intelligence and thoughtfulness. I enjoy their ability to converse and think on a deeper level. I respect their nerdy interests.
I’m glad I’ve finally recognized this so that maybe I’ll set my eyes on more guys in this category and weed out the rest. Only time will tell if this is truly my type, but it certainly seems to be so. And I’m not ashamed one bit! If that’s the personality that best fits and compliments me, then I can embrace it!
What’s your type? And if you’re unsure…trust me, so was I!
