When it comes to love and attraction, what are guys and girls attracted to? We all have the physical things in the opposite sex that attract us. Some tall guys prefer tall girls, others prefer short girls, just to make them feel manly and like they are capable of protecting her. Some short guys like tall girls because they want to show that they can still ‘bag’ a tall chic in spite of their height …er…deficiency. Other short guys cannot handle being with a tall ‘gal’ because they cannot take the feeling of a girl towering over them, especially in high heels. Some girls (like me) prefer dark-skinned guys and wouldn’t even as much as bat an eyelid if a light-skinned Adonis were standing right in front of them. There are guys who are attracted to slim girls, while others (like my cousin) are attracted to thick girls. And then, there are guys who would kill to have a girl with big boobs, while others simply cannot imagine being with such girls. Some prefer small ones and yet others do not think it is an important factor at all.
God created us differently and that’s why we cannot all be attracted to the same physical attributes. That is why a guy tells his friend he’s attracted to a particular girl because of, let’s say, her sense of humour. And his friend is like, “are you crazy? She is not even pretty!” In the same way, a another one scolds her friend for falling for a particular guy because “he’s so short!” Well, they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? Some people may not even be attracted to obvious things like facial beauty or body type. They may be attracted to silly things like their hands and nails (*raises hand* okay that’s me. LOL), the sound of their laughter and so on. The whole process of being attracted to someone is so sweet because there are no set rules. “I will be attracted to whom I will!” hahaha. A person does not necessarily set out to be attracted to and fall in love with a particular set of qualities. (maybe some people do, I don’t know). even when they do set out with an ‘Attraction List’, sometimes it doesn’t always happen the way they plan and they end up falling for qualities that didn’t make the list; even qualities they never thought could be called that: QUALITIES. If attraction happens exactly as we have planned in our ‘big’ heads, I don think it’d be fun; and then the element of surprise would be lost. Attraction just happens and that is one of the beauties of falling in love!
As D’Banj says in his song, Fall in Love, “Love is a beautiful thing” and so if you have found love, enjoy it. If you haven’t, keep hope alive…you will surely find it sooner than you even expect. But the beautiful thing is that you might not even realise when it’s happening. It’ll be like a lover tiptoeing to hug you from behind: you don’t know when he’s doing it but when it happens, you’ll LOVE it!
