Mcdreamy! Mcsteamy! Probably sounds like new additions to menus at Mcdonald’s I suppose. No such luck! These two new words are, as I learnt, believe it or not, descriptions of two very dishy looking men on primetime soap! Mcdreamy for an unbelievably dashing brain surgeon with utterly dreamy eyes and unnaturally perfect hair but absolutely no brains whatsoever! Mcsteamy for a beefcake plastic surgeon packed with insane amounts of testosterone and the insurmountable self-belief that he is the most irresistible thing that ever walked the earth! I was really amused! I know that it’s just a soap and such characters have been created to keep the ratings high, but it set me thinking about the favourite punching bags of the world! Men! Are there really such men in the real world?
I am sure a lot of women will agree with me when I say I can think of more apt names – Mcdrab, Mcdreary ! Just kidding! But today I decided to be nice for a change. Let me give them their due!
While good looks no doubt make heads turn, I doubt if that’s what makes men tick!
This world I know still has a whole lot of men who put their earnest foot forward, who genuinely want to be known for their hard work, strength of character and the difference they have made to the lives of people they work with and not just for their looks or the effect they have on women. They are charming not because they ooze sex appeal but because they respect their women and want to be great examples to their kids. They want to be the character on which their sons build their character upon. They have great dreams for the future and they believe in their actions speaking louder than their looks. Such men wear humility on their sleeves instead of their pumped up biceps and that I think is a big turn on. Gratitude too is a big part of their lives and they walk with their heads held high with self-assurance instead of smugness, which speaks volumes of never forgetting where they came from. Such men would be deeply embarrassed if they were remembered for their ‘steaminess’ quotient. Here’s hailing such men! They are the real men and there is just one word for them – McReal !
