Thanks for following, Charlotte! :D Love your blog.

Are they good or bad? I don't care {at least at the moment. Normally it's the kind of debate I'd like.}. Today I am here to embrace them in a discussion of

Guy Stereotypes: Tall Dark and Handsome vs. Sweet Sensitive Surfer

Two stereotypes, two choices, two opposite elements. Both can be hott, I'll be the first to admit, but every girl has a "Type," and mine just happens to be the former, TDH.

He's mysterious, shadowy and sarcastic. Dark hair, mischievous eyes, smooth voice. Intense, clever and the tiniest bit dangerous.

Just out of curiosity, I Googled "tall dark and handsome." My screen filled with images like this


and this

If there had been any doubt in my mind that this was my Type, it was immediately erased.

On the other hand, my good friend Brianna is partial to the Triple S type. Chill, blonde and sensitive. The sparkling white smile, the sexy tanned skin, the bright blue eyes. Funny and sweet the slightest bit shy.

I Googled "hott blonde guys" in order to get some examples.

Yeah. Not my type.

What about you guys? Is your type TDH or the Triple S?



  1. well you didn't pick good SSS reps. You can't compare boys and men fairly. I got me a hot SSS. I don't have a type though.

  2. Good post! Thought far as men and women I do believe that there are stereotypes-ones that mostly society creates. And as far as TDH vs. SSS, I can't help but wonder who coined those phrases. Are men as equally guilty for creating their own stereotype as women are equally guilty for labeling them? I feel like it's a "What came first, the chicken or the egg" type of question.

    I would have to admit that my preference in men has always been brunettes-but not necessarily tall and dark. I feel like "dark" is vague too. Dark hair, dark skin, dark eyes? Not to say I don't think there are very attractive blonde men out there-it's just my preference. But now I can't help but wonder if I'm being stereotypical!

  3. Jamie: Touche. It's hard finding blonde men like that. I'mma try though.

    Becca: Thanks! I made up the Triple S XD I couldn't think of a pre-ordained opposite for the Tall Dark and Handsome type.

    I'm with you all the way on that :)
