Do men have blog crushes?
Can they have such crushes when a woman does not post her assets (physical that is) on her site periodically?
Women, without doubt, have blog crushes. Being the less visual of the sexes (which doesn't mean that we don't like an attractive man) we tend to find ourselves attracted to personality, depth, sense of humor, and men who can communicate.
That is what the blog world is about - communication. Where better to find men that communicate, through writing, all the attributes that draw women.
Take a quick journey through the blog world. Visit a few men's sites - not the sport, sex, or electronic sites. You will find women - of all ages and from all countries, reading, commenting, flirting, and enjoying the writing of these guys.
Sight unseen, we are smitten.
However, I don't know that I can say the same about men.
I do know that a woman will usually see her readership increase drastically if she posts her "assets." This truly doesn't surprise me as men are visual beings who definitely enjoy a free look.
A friend of mine, as do many others I am sure, wanders the "casual Encounters" posts at Craig's List when bored. When something funny is found, I will receive the post. Interesting - men want "pictures" - they need to see what they are getting. Thinking that women like the same, they happily posts pictures of their assets for all to enjoy. They don't understand that we, as women, often don't find this a turn-on. (sometimes more like comic relief)
On the other hand, a well written, funny post (clever) is more likely to draw the attention of a woman. There is just something about a man, who expresses himself well, that is appealing. Perhaps it is the insight to the male psyche or that a sincere and expressive man is the exception rather than the norm.
Men, on the other hand, like to see more than they like to read/listen. For them, a picture, whether on screen or in person, is worth a thousand words.
So, are they drawn to the blog world and the women who do not post pictures of their assets? Can they find themselves attracted to those who write, painting pictures with words and posing questions and offering thoughts. Is some degree of sexual content required to hold a man's attention?
