When I was a kid, I had a MAJOR crush on John Travolta. If my memory serves me correctly, one of the first movies I saw him in was “The Boy In The Plastic Bubble” but “Grease” & “Saturday Night Fever” were in heavy rotation in my house. And, don’t let me forget Vinnie Barbarino, from “Welcome Back Kotter”. Yes, I was quite young and lusting after an older man, but to me he was the epitome of sexiness. The dark hair, the dimple in his chin and those dance moves had me in awe.
Ever since my fascination with John Travolta developed when I was younger, I guess you can say that I’ve developed “White Man Fever”. “White Man Fever” is what I call my love/lust affair with white men. Now, with saying that, I am in no way implying that I don’t date black men and statistically speaking, I have dated more black men than white men.
Now, not just any white man will do. I will not, and do not, date the thugged out white men, as I don’t date thugged out black men either. Also, a pointdexter will not do either. With any type of man I date, I need a fair balance. I also do prefer dark hair white men, compared to the Nordic, blond hair look. The piece de resistance in my book, is a white man with dark hair & grey eyes!
I’m not sure how many women out there remember Brian Bloom, but, WOW!
A couple of years ago, I was hanging out with a friend in NYC and we were doing some shopping in the East Village. I walked into a shoe store, and saw this beautiful specimen of a man with this thick curly dark hair and the cutest smile I had ever seen! We were all sitting there trying on shoes and he was pretty friendly as well. Of course no matter how handsome a man is, my major deal breaker is height. Being that he was a few inches shorter, that kinda killed any possibility of me trying to flirt with him. Low and behold, a few years later, I came across him again, but he was on television and not shopping. Who would have thunk it, I was <<<this>>> close to being a part of his “Entourage”. LOL!
Recently, a friend of mine wrote a blog on Myspace with her list of white men who ‘could get it’. What’s pretty funny is that she listed a pretty close friend of mine, Jeff. Carla (yes I used your name) typically doesn’t find white men attractive, but she has declared Jeff, “The Sexiest White Man That’s Not On TV”. Yes, I must admit it, Jeff is a beautiful piece of man candy. I remember when I first introduced Carla to Jeff. He met up with us at an impromptu dinner, right after his gym work out. He had on a pair of baggy sweatpants, a wrinkled t-shirt and a hoody on. I swear when Jeff walked into the restaurant, every one’s mouth dropped! Yes, Jeff looks that good, although he’ll always claim otherwise.
Recently, Jeff and I had a conversation and our ‘friendship’ was the subject of that conversation. Jeff & I have been friends for the past 5 years, and yes, even though I always felt he was very attractive, I can’t say that I was attracted to him. So during this conversation, he felt that since we were both ‘single’ that maybe we should try dating each other.
“Jeff, uh, remember you said I was like a sister? Where is all of this coming from?”, is what I asked.
Now, will Jeff & I ever “go there” in regards to dating. I highly doubt it, partly because, I’m fine with just being friends with him and I’ve already tried to pawn him off on a couple of my girlfriends. But yes, if I didn’t consider him a ‘buddy’, he’d definitely be up there on my “White Man Fever” list. But for now, I’m dealing with “HWSRN (he who shall remain nameless) Fever”, and no, he’s not white.
So who’s on your current, “White Man/Woman or Black Man/Woman Fever” list?
I came across this video on “Black Feminity”!
