The hot man theory and other randoms about menfolk

Much as I love to hate on fine men, I must confess that I sure as heck love to ogle them. Case in point, the other day, I was standing at the train station and minding my business when one fine ass man happened to stroll past me. If you see the way my neck turned at lightning speed? I definitely craned it well and proceeded to admire and drool over the man until he had faded out of sight. Hey! Who no like better thing? But as I gave it some more thought, I realized that while I like to stare at the fineness that is a well chiseled and wonderfully created man, in my heart of hearts (as we'd say back in the day)…I feel that such men who I consider to be on that 9-10/10 category of fineness are simply not on my level. As in, levels dey…and their levels are way above mine. I mean, let’s call a spade a spade here... I by no means consider myself to fall under the categories of ‘hot’, ‘sexy’, ‘gorgeous’, ‘stunning’ and whachumacallit. I’m not endowed with big boobs (if y’all remember, I rep the itty bitty titty committee), and I don't have an exceptional looking butt either. I think that I’m definitely not a bad chick to look at if you're down with the 'girl next door' kinda cuteness. However with such hot men who are probably used to millions of females chasing them, I highly doubt that they are looking for girl next door kinda cuteness when they can have the dime pieces and premium arm candy to flex with. I ain't even mad at that! The way I see things, hot people want to hang out with their fellow hot people, and so I will gladly ogle and stare at the hotties but I by no means think that they are checking for me/have me in their radar. I was telling a friend about it, and she asked me… ‘So, if such a man approached you, would you feel like you are unworthy of his attention?’ and I said umm..unworthy is a stretch, but heyy I would definitely be taken back like ehnn? Lil ol’ me?? :-D... Abi na? I'm sure someone will say 'it's your personality that counts' which I think is tales by moonlight because I'm a strong believer in the theory that men are very much driven by looks.

Meanwoos, according to some male friends of mine who always feel like they are dropping 'knowledge'…if you’re a woman and you want to increase your chances of meeting menfolk at events, wear attire that showcases your figure eight i.e. boobage and ASSets…preferably something in the short and tight category. According to them, men are very visual creatures (no kidding, Captain Planet) and right off the bat none of them know that you have an awesome personality so they are working with the visual image that you present. Hey, I can’t even disagree with them. Much as I’m very anti the short + tight combination (as in, it should be either or and not both), I gotta say that me thinks that the typical woman who gets noticed at most events is decked in a short + tight dress. In response to my friends, I said that I guess that’s why I haven’t been meeting a lot of bobos lately and that I’ll just have to focus on saving up for an Eharmony or Match.com subscription, where I can showcase my ‘charming smile’ and hope that my ‘winning personality’ comes through in the words that I type on my profile…

Till tomorrow I will always wonder why men will date a girl for 5 years, break up with her on some bogus reason and then quickly move on to marry another woman within 1 year. Lately, as I attend more weddings and look at the smiling couples, I can't help but wonder which woman is out there on planet Earth crying her eyes out because the 'love of her life' is getting married.

I keep saying this and I will continue to say this...men will make the loudest noise on social networking sites *ahem*...Twitter about how they want an X kinda woman, or a woman that possesses Y traits but when it all boils down to it...if a man really likes you and really wants to be with you, then all that shit goes flying out of the window. And I've observed quite a few examples to support my theory...

Last but not least, why do men love them some crazy women? Maaan sometimes you be hearing some kain kain stories and it's like how on earth would anyone want to be with this woman, yet the man will close eye and stay. My friend was telling me some off the wall story the other day about this one couple (ultimately the woman did the dude dirty and bounced), and was now yarning about how chick was so crazy and the dude was so heartbroken and torn about the situation. I burst out laughing! Upon the one wey she do before, bobo no see warning signs and step...now he wan form heartbroken. Abegi! I'm convinced that men just love them some drama and apparently being a nice and quiet girl isn't #winning. I asked this Q on Twitter the other day, and the responses that I got for why men like crazy women was "the crazy sex". Umm okay na.

Aniwoos let me quit while I'm ahead, because if I siddon tok this man matter na to dey here all night be that.

PS:- Jeez, I can't believe I haven't posted since January. Blame that ridiculous distraction named Twitter. But, I'm alive! Thanks for checking on me... *cheeses*

We go relate.

Long time, relationships? E don tey...

Gee said...

LoL @ teales by moonlight! hehehehhe---I am also driven to believe that men are visual(driven by what they see) tho while women are audio related(driven by what they hear), however to every rule exceptions must dey shei?
nd back to blaming twitter, LOL I guess we are all guilty on that one sha! xx

Mamuje said...

Good luck with the Match.com thingy. Anyway nice to have you on here again.

Ginger said...

I've missed you too! Where do i start? Yes i too wonder at the heartbroken ex gf cryin somewhere on planet earth as that marriage happens.. That your love theory- i beg to differ a lil. Fyne ass men do not want to share the limelight so they dont marry the competition. Another way of lookin at it is - a less fine woman will out of insecurity give more ROI. Lol.
P.s. I dont worry abt size my darlin. Some like teeny bitty jus fine.

THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a million examples

RepOne said...

Mgbeksssssssssss!! Long time oh...you just scarce like sensible men. lol

I'm with you on that hot to hot bit...but then u see a really hot dude/girl with a less than average girl/dude and you're like 'how did that happen?'

Man mata dey taya persin to tok jare...its getting more ridiculous by the day, i swear.

mizchif said...

I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!

EDJ said...

LOL @ "tales by moonlight", that is true oh! Personality is for people that meet online. If its a matter of going to an event and getting "picked up" by guys, how else will they notice you if you don't dress in a certain way.

Despite me saying this, I believe the short and tight attire is reserved for awon Kim Kardashian and co. Me, I do not have time or energy for all that gibberish.

Sisi Yemmie ™ said...

ha ha ha.....yes oh....Men are visual creatures....tried and tested! lol... And I am still looking for the answer to why a guy would date a girl for eons and then suddenly marry someone else.....hmmmmm....whyyyyy?

Mia Farraday said...

YAY YOU'RE BACK! Twitter is such a distraction, isn't it? I had a full and fulfilling life before Twitter now I'm like " Oh you can't make supper? What a shame!" and then I get my tweet on, happliy! SMH

BUt anyway. I am with you on the 'levels dey' theory. I too consider myself to fall more into the attractive than stop-traffic category and I would be like, WTF if a total banger approached me all sprung. I've dated such a banger before and abeg the wahala was too much for my poor ego.

SO pleased you're back to blogging!

aeedeeaee said...

chai! to think i waaaaiiiiited for this post lool

I know about the hot male ogling pandemic too..sigh...i suffer same

Adaeze said...

lol I like Mizchif's response " I love you " - I love you too and your posts...hilarious and true reading for sure. lol when it comes to fine fine men, the kinda level I often think they're not on, doesn't have to do with looks, but brains! Most of htem are so damn full of themselves they are annoying....now, the best thing would be a fine fine man that was kinda shy and still confident :-p

True, men are visual creatures...but I dislike the women who go completely overboard like they are desperate for attentiuon. It should definitely be done with class ;)

The thing about crazy women, you have teh same for both sexes, women doing the same ol thing too... i will neve runderstand it...

thanks for lightening my day!

Rayo said...

Deez said...

We all have preferences. I'm a fan or semi-crazy babes. It's interesting being with/around them. Note that I said semi o! When it gets to the part where they want to start burning stuff, i'm dialing 911 so they can come and pepper spray her.

Omalicha Searching said...

i like hot men. they usually have low self esteem. trust me. the best way to get them and ditch them is get their attention, then ignore them, then quave them, then friend zone them. FOREVER. they will chase u forever.

try it. thankmelater

ifeoma said...

YEAH GUYS REALLY LOVE THE LOOKS, BUH THE SOONER THEY FIND OUT U R JUST A PREETY FACE LOOKING FOR FUN THE STORY MITE CHANGE ESP WITH THOSE THAT HAVE SOME LEVEL OF INTEREST.

2cute4u said...

Funny thing is those 'handsome' guys sure don't really go after smashing girls for the same reasons you just gave..
All the same, guys as you say, sure do love drama!
If you give them crazy sex, they'd give that as a reason for not marrying you, that you're wild!
Their wahala too much jare..

LohiO said...

LOL! I do not even where to start with leaving a comment!

CaramelD said...

Lemme tell you something!!! This date for five years and then marry some random chick, baffles me!!! My cousin did it and till tomorrow I have no sensible reason from him. He is married now and there at people in Lagos who still thinks that he is going out with the ex! See how he has burnt her cable??

SargeMix said...

Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez..... how come I neva stumbled on this earlier? Nice piece Mgbeke!!! However, my comment: "it is on record [at least, my record!! hehe] that the "girl next door cuttie" often times, comes with the "crazy sex" u speak off......

flourishingflorida.net said...

Original babe, how far. Longest time i come dis blog. i can see u still have d winning formula. keep it up, dear.


i like fine boys too. i wouldn't call myself a fine girl - well, maybe a little pretty - but am not flashy. bobos like flashy girl, true. so, usually, all these fine boys been no dey notice me. e no make me vex o. cos, bottomline, i no want make person come dey compare between me and my bobo who fine pass. see as Kate Middleton dey almost look like Plain Jane next to William. Mba o. i no want!

meeee said...

what is your twitter handle??

Devil's Spawn said...

In as much as I understand your whole rationale with birds of a feather flocking together, I believe that these "hot" people need to be with ugly people, so they can make "okay" looking people and rid the world of ugly people once and for all.

ibiluv said...

hawt men?

good to ogle

but dating them?

Toinlicious said...

lmao@"I rep the itty bitty titty committee". i totally agree with u about men being very visual tho. if u av a pretty face, guys just automatically assume u must be gud. thing however is, most of d hawt guys eventually settle with the "next-door-cute" type girl.

SargeMix said...

Bingo Toin....! Couldn't have said it better..... Hope for the cute-next-door typa chick..... hawt ones coming up! And oalladem hawt chicks...... might just pay to get some serious cooling down with the nat so hawt fellas..... and thats what I call; " B A L A N C E "

LucidLilith said...

Nice looking men are just so great to look at. But I agree, they will have too many women throwing themselves at their feet. I can't go through that wahala. Average suits me just fine.

leggy said...

i really do not agree. i do think that no woman is beyond any man's level. IMHO. i think if a man gets to know you and likes you, it wouldn't matter so much what you look like.but what do i know? this was a really interesting read.

Loling at "I’ll just have to focus on saving up for an Eharmony or Match.com subscription"...

It's so true we men are visual beings. That's how we're created. However, in looking for mates, I mean serious ones to marry, all those tight and shorts don't help o.
Like me for example, I must confess, those 'things' catch my eye, even while I discipline myself not to take a second look... but they don't attract me from here to there. Usually, I shake my head after my first look. lol

What am I trying to say..? Looks deceive, true beauty lies within.

Nice thoughts... U r too funny mehn. I'm glad I came on here again.
