This week's episode follows up a point that I raised in last week's episode, something that encouraged a lot of my listeners to respond to - hitting on the hottie. I wanted to clarify some thoughts on that, and talk a bit about my thoughts on beauty in general.

    Ah yes, the difference between a hot girl and The Hot Girl™

    I loved this audio Eve:)
    In my relationship history I have found 'hot' women could be very ugly personality wise. Like SomeRandomGuy I learned the hard way. Now, I find a woman that desires me and vocalizes it even in non sexual ways turns me on like nothing else, looks being almost secondary. Yes I'm still attracted to physical beauty but I learned to temper that. I find that cute girls tend to be the most open sexually and want it more.
    I do have a confession about physical beauty. I've never been much of a boob man or butt man. I love long hair, eyes, lips, shoulders and backs. I haven't figured out where I picked up that last two but a strong well shaped set of shoulders and back on a woman always gets to me.:P
    Thanks Eve for that beautiful brain, voice and everything else of yours:)

      Thank you so much, that's so lovely!

      And it's great that you're finding out what you like in terms of beauty - that's what counts, not some pre-packaged ideal that you're supposed to like

    I've always told myself since an early age that the 'hot' women does not have a good personality and/or would not like me (I've come to learn this the hard way multiple times as a kid), so the men who do only go for the hotties have always seemed childish in my eyes.

    I'm more than content with a cute girl, which to me is hard to not come by as almost all girls are cute to me.

    • A Eve on 2016-01-08 19:48:09 (UTC)

      Well I think that's awesome, we need more guys like you!

      I'm with you, almost all guys are cute to me too

    [Honest reaction to the latter part of this audio. No over-arching negativity / downer intended.]

    There are times that, as a Southern gentleman, I feel that I am nearly the last of a dying breed. We used to have greater numbers / kindred spirits. It can be somewhat frustrating.

    *End miniature rant*

    • A Eve on 2016-01-04 12:56:13 (UTC)

      Well, I for one appreciate some good old fashioned southern hospitality...💋

      • RedKnight on 2016-01-05 01:39:18 (UTC)

        Which shall be joyously extended to you, should you ever come to visit. :)

          I've probably been wherever you are, I traveled all over the States when I lived in Canada - I think there's only about 10 states I haven't been to, all on the West Coast (and AL and HI)

            I live in Alabama.

    Makes you wonder what dresses would look like if women had retractable boobs :D

    I think you're 100% right on the 'looks vs personality' part. I've worked with a lot of models and there is probably one in ten that I can hold a conversation with before I find them to be vacuous, conceited or vicious. Its very unfortunate but sadly says enough about my character if I find I still want to give them one. I'm really glad I'm growing out of that.

    Your fledgling theory about 'mirror neurons' holds water for me. I recognised some of those traits in myself so there could be something to it.

    Great work as ever Eve :) xx

      Thank you Pogo! Retractable boobs - wow, sometimes that would be such a relief... :D
