I was just looking at some of the topics, and there are lots of girls posting messages who seem to be terrified of boys and the whole idea of relationships. I know that boys sometimes can be confusing, and weird, and stupid, but I thought it's be nice if we all posted the reasons why we love boys! Has a boy done something nice for you recently? Is there a certain boy who's smile makes your heart jump? Love the way boys act all nonchalant about stuff when really they care a lot? Tell us about it! I myself have a boyfriend who is a total sweetheart, and is just such a gentleman. My favorite thing about him by far is his eyes. They are so incredibly sexy- like Abercrombie model sexy-and there are times when he is serious and he looks at me with those eyes and I feel like he can just see everything inside me. And then when he laughs, his eyes squint and he looks like a little boy. I love watching boys laugh. They have such darling smiles. Ok, that's my contribution. Now everybody post what you love about boys in general, or YOUR boy, or whatever you want. NO BASHING BOYS HERE!!

Oh, so *that's* why I've never had a girlfriend, all of the girls are afraid of me. I thought I was just a huge loser.

I like boys (sometimes) because they can be sweet and the most wonderful people in the world (when they arent around their friends).

Thats all I can think of for right now.

My boyfriend, does not show his emotions well. But when he does I LOVE it. Like Ill ask him if he misses me and hell say what do you think. The other day when I was home for the wkend, he said when can I have you for more than just a wkend, I need to clone you. I thought that was soooo sweet. I love just being with him, it makes me feel like all my probs are gone. Hes great!

What I love about the boys I've loved is that they don't talk dirty, even around their friends when they don't know I'm listening. They didn't complain about me or call me a pervert or assume I was a masochist for wearing a leash. (It's always amazed me that so many people think liking bondage means liking being whipped.)

What I love about the girl I'm currently involved with is how neither of us minds being randomly hugged by the other, and how we can talk about absolutely anything.

This might have to be edited by the admin. because it'll be freakin' long!

I love the way they smile. I love the way they laugh. I love boys eyes, because they all have long eyelashes. I love the way they walk, I love the way they talk. I love everything about boys. I am boy crazy!

I love boys! Most of my friends are male so there's a lot for me to love. One of my favorite things is how they treat me like a friend, without any special treatment because I'm a girl.

i have a lot of guy friends. they're great. we hang around and do computer geek stuff. they ask me for advice about girls. or if they've got girlfriends, we'll talk about "girlfriend stuff." or we'll just geek around, belch, and talk smack about our lab users (pathetic is trying to find MSWord on a Solaris machine ... haha, we're elitists).

Oh, I hear ya. I think that I intimidate my boyfriend. I get raging PMS, and I don't really discuss it with him, so he thinks I just get terrible moodswings out of nowhere. Maybe I should try to explain to him...

I love guys...most of the time. I love how sweet they can be, how secure they make you feel, how they can act like a knight on a white horse, how wonderful it feels when they say they love you. There is a lot I hate about them as well, but I'll save that for another topic.

It took so long to remember just what happened.
I was so young and vestal then.

Hmm... i am just the girliest girl you will ever meet. And too shy. Like, normally I am pretty articulate, but when i get the chance to talk to this guy i am majorly crushing on, i manage to say something like "Hi.... yeah.... huminahuminahimina..." (honeymooners lol), and whack my forehead later for being so stupid. Sigh. But about guys... When they smile at you, you always end up walking into something... oww, actually lol... oh! holding doors is so sweet, a little saying but leaves an impression... sigh, slightly spiky hair i have a thing for hehe, i could go on... but i am too busy thinking about loverboy...

Since we can say what we like about girls, here I go:

- They can be so sweet
- They can make you happy just by talking with you

I mean, girls too can be weird and all, but I don't think there a reason why to be afraid of them. If both sides think such thing, it won't be long that this world will be empty.

Another thing, some girls think they have to do a lot to make their guy happy. I don't think so. We also like little things, like a phone call, a sweet note and stuff like that. Don't need to do anything huge to impress us. We like you natural

Guys are such

-***PLEASE DONT USE THAT WORD HERE, THERE ARE A LOT OF OTHER WORDS YOU CAN USE~THANK YOU***-

but I love them regardless I love how they can be so oblivious to things, and while it may piss you off, the more you think about it, its kind of funny. And I love the way their hair looks after they wake up. Guys bedhead is mega cute. Girls bedhead on the otherhand... Well, cant say the same *laughs*

Boys shoulders are so much better than girls'. They're bigger and have more contours, and feel nicer.

On the emotional side, boys (nice ones at least) can be so affectionate without saying or doing anything - just by their prescence and sheer will. I don't get that with girls.

Plus side about girls - they're less homophobic, and generally more tolerant.

jazzpenguin - I know exactly what you mean! If I've just had a great time with a guy friend I will feel warm and cozy, like we spent the time cuddling or something of that nature. It makes me feel really good.

This is why my particular boy is fun. ~grin~

- He's really good for cuddling.
- He thinks I'm cute no matter what I look like.
- He's really good for cuddling.
- He's not at all reserved in telling me how he feels about me - yay! A boy who isn't too confusing.
- He's really good for cuddling.
- He makes me feel really safe.
- He really good for cuddling.
Hmmmm, yeah, I think you get the picture. ~grin~ There's heaps of other stuff but I'd be here forever. ~grin~

Oh btw, I'm new to this board so I just thought I'd say "Hi! ~waves~ I'm Whitlam. I'm 22 and from Australia!"

Cheers!

I'm with you on the cuddling, Whitlam. I also realized today how much I love the nicknames that my boyfriend gives me. They're not cute like, "Honey" or "Sweetie" or anything; they're nicknames that he uses when he's teasing me- I think he's the funniest person ever. Does anybody elses significant other give them nicknames? Are they cute ones or funny ones?

I have the sweetest boyfriend.... last week i was totally stressed out about school and grades and teachers and parents and the list could go on forever...... so i was talking to him one night and he made me list out everything that was bugging me, which in itself helped to relieve some of the stress and then the next day i come to school and find my locker filled with rose petals....one petal for everything that was stressing me out (a lot of things were stressing me out)and the he comes up behind be, covers my eyes, and hands me a single red rose (de-thorned) to remind me that no matter what, he will always be there for me.

Hey Whitlam, do you call yourself after the band, or the prime minister? Or both?

Annie Juliet, you have the sweetest boyfriend - hang on to that one. I just realised that I forgot to comment on the whole "I like boys because they're boys" thing. There's no real reason why I or any gay bloke/ straight female likes boys save for the fact that they dig the whole male package (no double meaning intended.)

But I still think boys' shoulders are the best bit.

i utterly agree with the loving of the shoulders.

ilike boys because they're willing to fight back. i can sit around and exchange insults at lunch with my dumbass guy friends, or go out for a movie with my quote-unquote-boyfriend and then we'll drive thirty miles to Central Washington University just to walk around at ten at night.

boys rock because they both scream and whisper, yell and laugh, bite and kiss.
