The above image came around on Facebook and I immediately "liked" and "shared". It hit so hard that I was ready to go out hunting for any one of the six. You will notice that all of these men are of interesting looks but none of them, with maybe the exception of Tennant #10, are classically handsome and even with him it is a sort of dorky sweetness. If you are a man and don't know who Tennant is - hie thee immediately to BBC for everything from Doctor Who to Hamlet. Come to think of it, if you are a male of the species ... Hie thee immediately to BBC for lessons if you ever want to get laid regularly again in your natural life because this is what women want. We are so desperate, we will even settle for any combination of two qualities of six ... take your pick.

Now women are hardly immune to the attraction of an Adonis as circulation of another recent picture of the Australian Swim Team proves beyond doubt. There were definitely a lot of longing gazes aimed in that direction.
Don't let this window shopping upset you. Every single one these guys would be rejected and or dumped after a first date unless he possessed at least two of the attributes of the men of the BBC. As long as you take reasonable care of yourself and aren't a total slob, it is the internal not the external that always wins fair maiden, matron, grandmother or crone - we are eternally optimistic!!!
Now to zero in on the essential truth. What you are is important, very important but even more essential is how you make us feel about ourselves. You see, we want to be a "Companion". We want Doctor Who to show up in his little blue box, Sherlock to involve us in an adventure, or Rory to finally walk us down the aisle. We want to be the lover, partner, confidant and most of all friend - a necessary part of your life. Make a woman feel as if you would be less if she weren't around and she will do darn near anything and go anywhere just to make sure that feeling doesn't end. So lets hear your requirements gentlemen - just name them.
In the meantime, do study the men of the BBC and just to give American TV a chance you could throw in a little of the danger of Harvey Specter from Suits, the charm of Neil Caffrey from White Collar, or the intensity of Hank Lawson of Royal Pains because that's all good too.
