What does she see in him?

I wonder what criteria all these magazine polls use to decide somebody is sexy.

Truly, I am bemused to read that so and so is the hottest celebrity body, or is the person the world wants to go on a date with. I mean, the man or woman may have perfect features, a great body, but what do you know about the person? Granted, he or she is famous, but does that guarantee that you wouldn't to be bored to death during the date? What will you talk about? Their celebrity?

Sexiness is surely in the mind of a person, and their personality?

A young friend of mine has a crush on the actor who plays Harry Potter. I asked her once if she would date him; she thought about it a while and said, 'Well, obviously, once." So I asked her why only once. She said that though she has read tons about him, she can't be sure if that is all true, and she might find him unimpressive in reality. She added that if he didn't think she was great, too, there would be no point in going out with him again. Smart girl. :D

For all said and done, you don't know a person from reading gossip columns and articles in film magazines. You know what the columnists think, that is all. Desirability develops from knowing a person's quirks and propinquity.

After the reading in the Times of India that young India wants to date John Abraham or Abhishek Bachchan, or may Priyanka Chopra and Bipasha Basu, I tried to make a list of men I'd like to have an affair with. (Come on, mature women don't stop with a dinner date. :D)

Sadly, my list is woefully short, and impossible to achieve in a mundane world.

There are two men I'd like to have had an affair with: Lord Havelock Vetinari, Patrician of Ankh-Morpork city state, and Sherlock Holmes, the world famous detective. Brilliant minds, both of them, and wonderful personalities.

Alas, they are both fictional characters!

Oh I agree on both Lord Vetinari and on Sherlock Holmes.... I'd like to add Strider though.

Gayatri- Like the Asterix comics say, come to my arms! take your sweetheart elsewhere and all that. A soul mate you are.
