- Morgan: And when you go out, you don't want to wear too much makeup 'cause otherwise the boys get the wrong idea. And you know how they are. They are only after one thing.
- Giselle: What's that?
- Morgan: I don't know. Nobody will tell me.

For my NaNo (that's - NaNo 2009....) WIP, I want to get some sense of what it's like for a guy to fall in love. If they even do.
Unless you're Travis Erwin, you probably don't read women's fiction if you have a penis. In the more hastily written of these kinds of romances, the men are attracted to a woman's physical appearance, and then fall in love with their brains/kindness/mothering skills, and start picturing themselves marrying and having babies with the gorgeous woman (who inevitably wears "slacks" and a "blouse.") Forgive me for being cynical (and not impressed - show me a man who pictures himself cleaning house and raising kittens), but I'm not sure that's how men fall in love.
So, how about it, guys? Do you fall in love? What's it like? Is it all physical, sexual? What do you notice first? What makes a woman attractive? Then what?
