I was just listening to Shania Twain over the radio about what doesn’t impress her. This inspired me to write another Mytake about what men do or have that don’t necessarily bring heart eyes to women.
“I've known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart
But you've got being right down to an art
You think you're a genius-you drive me up the wall
You're a regular original, a know-it-all”
I love a man who’s smart and intelligent. Who doesn’t want a man with an impressive list of accolades? But if all you constantly do is bore me out with your scientific theories, alien conspiracies and brag about your accomplishments, don’t expect me to stay put. Talk to me about how vulnerable you are, your thoughts about our relationship, your fears – tell me. I want to know more of you.
“Okay, so you're a rocket scientist?
So you got the brain but have you got the touch”
Who doesn’t want a man who works on rockets? Who flies planes? Who builds skyscrapers? But if you don’t show me that side of you who loves to get down and dirty with me, cooking in our kitchen or painting our house together, then who are you inside that uniform?
“I never knew a guy who carried a mirror in his pocket
And a comb up his sleeve-just in case
And all that extra hold gel in your hair oughta lock it
'Cause Heaven forbid it should fall outta place”
You can be Tom Hardy or Brad Pitt, but if all you care most about in life are your looks, you’d leave me feeling unloved knowing you have a string of girls vying for your attention. How will I know your heart belongs to me only if I have to constantly compete with them?
“You're one of those guys who likes to shine his machine
You make me take off my shoes before you let me get in
I can't believe you kiss your car good night
C'mon baby tell me-you must be jokin', right!”
I get it. You love your Aventador. It’s your investment, your baby. I wish you’d look at me the way you look at it sitting magnificently in your garage. I wish you’d spend as much time on me as you do buffing off the little nicks on it after a drive in the town and how careful you are with it. I wish you’d be as gentle with my heart.
“You think you're cool but have you got the touch, so what do you think you're Elvis or something?”
You’re so suave, so ruggedly handsome. Everyone adores you. You’re too cool for school. I want to love you but I feel you’re way out of my league and I cannot keep up. I wish you’d come down to earth and love me for me as I love you for you…
“Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm on the long, cold, lonely night
That don't impress me much”
You look like the perfect man. But I am not looking for perfect. I am looking for a man with a human touch with flaws, insecurities and who is not afraid to show me who he truly is inside. What I need is someone who is not afraid to laugh or cry and share his life with me; someone who can hold my hand through it all and just love me.
Having a lot of money, cars, a big house with a gate are good. But it means nothing if I don’t have your love. It can be an upgrade to some women but it is a bonus for me to have an amazing man like you by my side. Together, we can build a life; just you and me. Let me show you what love is…
Thanks for the time reading, lovers.
