What do men want in a woman?

Excuse me.

Run that by me again.

The subject of this blog if I read correctly…

And you did. What do men want in a woman? Fairly simple, and a legitimate inquiry around Valentine’s Day.

OK. Let’s see where this goes. Remember, this is a community blog with high standards.

Trust me, I know what I’m doing.

May I continue?

It’s your blog, honey.

Thank you.

It’s Fashion Week in New York.

I fully admit I don’t get this, and because I don’t get this I’ll often as regular readers know post absurd photos of models in my weekly Photos of the Week blog. They stand out as something way, way, way out of the ordinary.

I don’t get what the models are wearing. You ever see anything like that in public? At the museum? Symphony? Ballet? 

I didn’t think so.

I don’t get all the attention.

I don’t get the media coverage.

I don’t get the outpouring of love.

I don’t get the lack of simple good taste. This stuff isn’t ugly. It’s goofy.

I don’t get the implication that this is knock down, gorgeous beautiful. That would suggest that 9 out of 10, no, every single woman I see at the grocery store is nowhere near as desirable as see above photos.

Why am I bringing this up? Why am I writing about this?

Every day, I peruse numerous business websites. One of them is I understand and so do readers of This Just in the addictive nature of a headline that has more than the right amount of tease. had it here:

Don't let Fashion Week get to you—The ideal woman

Look, my hormones are all in the right place. Ideal woman? I’m there. I want more, so I read on. And guess what? I learned what I probably knew all along.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2014 p4

Men, when they look at the above say, sorry, I don't want that.

CNBC reports on a survey taken of men about their ideal physique when it comes to the opposite sex. Number 1 ain't what's been pictured here.

Number 1? Well, it wasn't tall and thin. And it certainly wasn't short and round.

Take a look.
