"He smelled so good! You know, it's that kind of thing where when you hug a guy, the smell is buried in him."
-Oprah on Shawn Corey Carter


You know, lately, I've been on this kick about guys. I just read a wonderful post by a writer/blogger/friend in my head, Jozen about liking people, crushes and things of that nature. It's been so long since I've had a real crush. Hell, it's been so long since I've been around a guy that makes me go......siiiiigggghhhhh.

Here are a few things about men that make me go "sigh."

1. Cologne: Please, refer to previous quote. There is nothing like a man who smells good. Now, don't get me wrong, seems like just this weekend, I leaned in for a hug from a guy and almost passed out because his strong-ass cologne was invading my nostrils. The right smell and just the right amount is "sighable." Yes, I just made that up. Don't judge me!You just inhale, go to Heaven and never want to come back down.

2. Hugs: Who doesn't like a big, strong, lingering hug? If you don't, kill yo'self! It's so lovely! I've yet to decide if a slim guy or a big guy gives the best hugs. It doesn't matter as long as I am wrapped up and engulfed in it.

3. Fresh haircuts: Sorry, bald-headed dudes. This doesn't apply to you, unless your hair is growing back. A fresh haircut with the perfect line and fade-out/taper (whatever!) is awesome. I guess that's the way guys feel about our hair. I can't explain what it is about them. Maybe it's proof that you take care of yourself? Maintenance is what's up.

What else do you think is "sighable"? I could go on, but I didn't want to be so specific. Your turn.

    I'm glad you asked. I was disappointed the list was so short..because I was agreeing all the way down so far!

    A man that dresses nice with a nice professional watch (not the big faced ones with the fake azz diamonds) makes me sigh!

    A GOOD LOOKING man working on the car with his shirt off good Lord!

    A man in the store with his little girl and she adores him..awwww!

    A man with some nice big neatly manicured nails...mmm!

    A man in a damn towel girl... YES!

    I'll stop NOW!

    I love the smell of my boyfriend's armpits--they always smell good, like fresh laundry even though he uses an unscented deodorant. Isn't that random? But sometimes it's the random that make you fall in love!

    Good list, Go!
    Rochelle: Wonderful point! It is those small random things. Woo woo woo!

    I love big strong arms. They make the hug that much better. I have a habit of randomly squeezing my guy's arms while he's driving, we're watching tv, whenever. I had to stop myself at church one day.

    Can't forget an easy smile. I love a man who's not afraid to smile. I hate when guys feel like they have to be hard so they don't smile. Get over yourself.

    I love your sighable list! I agree 100%.

    I absolutely LOVE when a guy I care about calls me beautiful. Totally sighable. I also can't help but swoon when a guy asks me for a kiss...you know, that quick 'give me a kiss' accompanied with a deep stare into your eyes...AMAZING!!!!
