Most Helpful Guy

  • Many years ago, I was with my then-girlfriend in Lisbon, and this greasy gypsy ratboy started pestering us to buy dope (that could well have been rabbit shit) from him.

    When we declined, he decided to help himself to a feel of her arse, so I decked him. A friendly waiter saw what happened, and proceeded to help me fill this odious little shit in. The good thing is, in a place like that, the police will never, ever take his side of it. In retrospect, I was lucky he didn't pull a knife, but the red mist had descended, and I didn't think about that.

    Anyway, yes, she seemed to be deeply grateful for this.

  • I guess it'd be nice to know that he'd do his best to protect me since I'd do the same for him however I could. At the same time, being willing to protect me is different from being aggressive and violent though so one is admirable, the other is a big issue.

  • yes ✔️
    it means he isn't coward to get involved in a confrontation.
    i remember that this was one of the main reasons i didn't date one of my friends.
    ◽ we were playing billiard, 4 of us, 3 girl n he. a drunk guy from other team came to my girlfriend, she got scared - and my friend didn't do much to protect her. in the end i had to send home the guy.

  • I have blind fate in my own ability to deal with situations like that which makes me think that I don't need a man to do it for me. That's obviously bullshit but I don't think I'd find them more attractive if I knew they could protect me. I'd say it doesn't matter to me.

    • you don't think its a subconscious thing you feel towards a guy you like?

    • It might be. I haven't really figured out what kind of guys I like so it's hard to determine what my subconscious thinks about men.

  • Yes. Its nice to feel save next to my partner. Females are physically weaker than males and their instincts tell them to look for someone who could protect them. Same as guys got an instinct to protect his girl.

  • Possibly one of the top factors of attraction. It's something I always catch my self briefly considering when weighing up if I like a guy. I think it's subconciously inbuilt.

    • If that feeling wasn't there do you think you wouldn't find him attractive?

    • Show All
    • ok.. well im just trying to nail down that one of the major things you find attractive about him is knowing he'd protect you?

    • I like to think of it as being a huge lovely bonus really.

  • I find it sexy yes! I like when he tells me that he'll protect me. But I also say the same thing too. "I got chu babe, I'll protect you in anyway!"

  • Yes. He’s a very intimating looking. I know in almost any physical alterations he would stop at nothing to protect me. I don’t expect his help unless I need it. I’m stubborn but I have a big mouth. I’ve caused havoc and he’s always backed me up.

    • so lets say you were in danger and your man did nothing to protect you... how'd you feel?

    • Show All
    • I'd be upset because I wouldn't think twice before trying to help him, but I'd expect help from him as someone who cares about me, not specifically because he's my boyfriend. Hence why it's not a turn on/off for me or comes into question when I'm dating someone.

    • Always nice to see a rational opinion.

  • I am pretty confident my guy would. But he works nights a lot. I do have a pocket knife just in case, and we also have a cane with a sword in it. So not completely helpless

  • Yes. I like protective guys. But I don't want him to try to fight people for dumb reasons. Like if another guy simply glances at me I don't want my boyfriend to punch him. I just like knowing that he could protect me from any real danger.
