It took me a long time and an awful lot of awkward first dates to learn the biggest secret in dating: There’s nothing sexier than a man in touch with his feminine side and I’m never going back to dating guys who aren’t. Here’s why:
1. THEY DON’T GIVE YOU CRAP FOR LIKING “GIRLY” THINGS.
There are unfortunately men out there who act like being considered girly is a terrible insult and something to be avoided at all costs. I had an ex who found basically everything that that women liked or did to be annoying. He’d roll his eyes if he saw me watching anything on TV that seemed too girly to him (for example, modeling shows, interior design programs, etc.) and make fun of it and me! That got old really damn fast. Hello, misogyny. Goodbye, misogyny.
2. THEY AREN’T AFRAID TO BE VULNERABLE.
The men I’ve dated who wanted to be alpha males and constantly made a show of how tough they were had it all wrong. There’s nothing more badass than owning your emotions, even if you’re sad, worried, or afraid.
