Bear Mountain

As opposed to Brokeback Mountain :-)

This is the male version of 'La Isla Bonita'.

Well, I did promise...
To write a post about what we ladies find attractive in you gentlemen :-)

If the perfect place to find the perfect woman is a tropical island complete with fragrant flowers (connotations of 'femininity'), I imagine the perfect place to find the perfect man would be a mountain (bastion of 'masculinity').
Do the ladies agree with me?

And the image of a big wild animal like a bear doesn't hurt the fantasy either :-)

Now, why a bear?, you may ask...
To answer this question,  I need to make a few declarations, lol.

I have realised something strange.
It was so much easier for me to define 'the perfect woman' because I could be totally objective about it, given that I was not the target audience for such a topic.

But all of a sudden, when the tables are turned, I get all self-conscious.
The only way to cure this is to 'divorce' myself from this post.
Nothing I describe here necessarily applies to me.
There, I feel better now :-)

However, I also know that I convince no-one. I may think I have divorced myself from this post, but it has to be said that I can only give my opinion o this topic.

Thus, this is an unedited peak into a female soul. Notably mine, to be precise. will only be as unedited as my Catholic self will allow.
For anything more, gentlemen, you would have to put a ring on it :-)

To me, a bear is the ideal masculine animal.
(And this is not because we have recently been joined by a Himalayan Bear, lol!)

A tiger or lion is equally masculine, if not more so than a bear.
But I find that these male animals are perhaps what one might call 'undiluted alpha'...
They will roar at you and tear your limbs apart before saying 'hello'.
There is only so much 'rawness' a female can take :-)

A bear is big, strong, and you know he could ravish you in a second, yes.
But he is also cuddly. Think 'teddy bear'. Every girl has one :-)
So a bear is dangerous, but at the same time, potentially (surprisingly, perhaps) friendly.
A heady mix indeed...
Alpha and beta. In just the perfect proportions :-)

Now this should be good news for all you men with paunches* out there...
Sure, a young woman (who is more 'visual' than her older counterpart) may want this:

But she soon outgrows this. Certainly if this is all he has to offer.
Whilst a man stays visual, a woman becomes less and less visual as she matures. Some are never visual to start with.
Notice I did not protest too much when Bellita mentioned that Jeremy Clarkson would be OK for me, in the post 'Lean on me'.

Neither Bellita nor I would object to a 'Jeremy Clarkson' look-alike, it seems :-)

At some point in her life, a woman wants a 'bear'. The right mix of 'alpha' and 'beta'.
*(But...and I am going to be a massive wet blanket here...if the paunch is a danger to your health, then please sort it out.
A woman may not be 'visual'. But she doesn't want to be a widow before her time either. A waist-to-hip ratio way beyond 1 is a cardiovascular time bomb...)

Now speaking of waist-to-hip ratio, I know this is more applicable to women, yes.

I think the eqiuivalent for men is his waist-to-shoulder ratio.
This is why the types like our male model friend above, with their V-shaped torsos are so attractive to young women...

To me, the perfect 'bear' ever is....Fred Flintstone! Where 'bear' meets 'caveman' meets 'Tarzan'.
Female heaven...
I LOVE The Flintstones!
For a long time, I wanted to be Pebbles. Then I thought, forget Pebbles, I wanna be Wilma :-)
I don't mind Barney Rubbles, but he is just a teeny weeny bit too beta for me :-(

Whoever said John Goodman was born to play Fred Flintstone was absolutely right. I already liked him in 'RoseAnn', but as Fred Flintstone, he exceeded my expectations ... Seriously.

Marriage counselling Bedrock style :-)

The real life Flintstones...
(Clearly, I committed a major transgression by omitting Miss. Stone aka Halle Berry from the post 'La Isla Bonita' :-)

And how sad when the Rubbles and The Flintstones fell out :-(

Got to get an alarm-clock like this one!

Moving swiftly on...

So, the perfect man...

This is JV's ideal:

I think that my perfect ideal would be rather old fashioned. Someone with character, courage, self respect, skills and ability.

JV's was the only answer to the question 'What is a woman's idea of masculine utopia', but that's OK, because it provides me with plenty to work with :-)


I think women smell this out in a man more accurately than men think.
I think the 'weakness' in the system is where a woman chooses to ignore aspects of a man's character that she knows she cannot handle. I say this with some authority because I know that whereas men complain bitterly that they have been 'blindsided' by a horrible woman who was a 'wolf in sheep's clothing' at the start of their relationship, very few women are 'surprised' in this way.
I put 'weakness' in inverted commas because I do not actually believe it is a weakness per se.
In many ways, I recognise it as an essential (if tiresome!) part of femininity.
It is part of seeing a man of interest as a 'lovable rogue'.
Once in a blue moon he is just not worth it...
But most are.

To borrow Bellita's 'sizzle' and 'steak' analogies again, a (mature) woman recognises a man who has 'been through something' and has come out the other side. A man who has been 'initiated' and is truly ready for her.
It takes one to know one though.
For a man's good character to be seen by a woman, she too needs to have good character.

Courage and Confidence

I don't need to say too much about this, I hope.
A courageous man is simply opium for the fairer sex.
And it can take so many forms: The fireman who rescues the child from the burning ustairs bedroom at night, the man who admits to his part in the failure of the company and suitably 'falls on his sword', the father who fights to see his son because he knows this is essential to the wellbeing of that boy...
Courage in today's world is not always appreciated, or even wanted.
But a man who shows it nonetheless is not doing it for 'show'.
Paradoxically, however, it never goes unnoticed...
Whether or not the entourage of said man choose to admit it.

Self respect

A self-respecting man, like a self-respecting woman is magnetic. I am sure JV would agree. These are the men every woman has in mind when they say things like 'Where are all the good men'?
It has nothing to do with 'good' per se.
It has everything to do with self-assuredness and an unshakeable belief in himself, which even the woman in question somehow knows that she cannot break.
And this one cannot be faked.

Skills and ability

Need I say more? He has to demonstrate an ability of some sort. One which could or is a source of income. It ties in with self-respect and confidence. No (self-respecting) woman wants a bum. Even if her hindbrain leads her to one. When she wakes up from her slumber, she will be off. And rightly so.

I hereby add one of my own, but only because I believe not many women would disgaree with me on this one.


A man who can diffuse a potentially flammable situation with humour gets my vote every time :-)
Because it shows courage, character, self-respect, skills and ability all rolled into one.

Danny has many posts about making a woman laugh. I agree with every single one of them.
Not to say that a man is supposed to be a woman's source of entertainment forever, of course.
But it really helps the attraction thing along, in a way that is not necessarily true of the reverse situation. A man does not respond nearly the same way to a funny woman as she would to him, in my experience.

To this end, I pick Will Smith as an example, not with his macho, alien-fighting, gun-toting, heroic image, but rather with his funny self.
When he was 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air'.

I found this scene to be particularly funny, especially the last part where he impersonates a woman.
Being British, humour is a way of life for me.

Hm, echoes of The Flintstones' counselling session here :-)

But for me personally, nothing trumps my auditory nature.

Serenade me like this, and you get me at 'hello' :-)

Barry White is another one who gets me going...
I once said I was not as enthralled by the male singing voice as I was by the female singing voice.
Turns out this is not strictly true...

This clip from 'Ally McBeal' appeals...
Perhaps this should be classified under 'Humour'.
Gentlemen, your goofy moves like these can be so endearing to a woman!

Speaking of goofy dances...
To all those men hell-bent on vasectomies, do you really want to pass up on this opportunity to show yourself in all your dancing glory at her Bat-Mitzvah?
(This thinly-veiled jibe at the vasectomy crowd was cleared and approved by my unrepentant hamster :-)


And if you are not Jewish, well, then you'll just have to wait until her wedding day...

And who was it that said fathers were unnecessary?
This woman is well on her way to being a good wife already. Because she has a father. One who cares.
What a treasured memory she will have forever and ever from this special day!

So there we have it...
An ode of sorts to you gentlemen.
Carry on being your lovable, goofy, bear-like selves :-)
And some of us ladies will leave the burning village for you...

Hmm, never checked my shoulders. 46", 32" waist. I spent years wearing baggy clothes thinking I had to hide it.

(Then again, I'm more of a boob-to-waist ratio kinda guy than hips.)

That's a new one on me...

Bob Wallace said...

I have been described as "charmingly arrogant." I've been like this my entire life.

Some women get tongue-tied in my presence but seem to enjoy it. Other don't but still seem to enjoy it.

The Princesses I ignore, and they get hysterical, can't stand me and some in cases tried to get me fired.

Hell hath no fury like a woman who thinks she's been scorned.

A sense of humor can be a dangerous thing sometimes.

The same thing about being competent. I'm a jack of all trades and know about a lot things (I work for myself). When I tell a woman she doesn't know what she's talking about, some (who apparently think they know more than I do) get hysterical.

I've never been mean about telling them they don't know what they're talking about. I'm more amused by them, which they apparently think means I'm not taking them seriously.

Every one of those traits you listed can backfire in a big way.

@ Bob

I don't doubt it for a minute. Especially when combined with arrogant charm and a keen insight.

@ ST

Very honoured by the quote. What can I say, I appreciate classic masculinity.

Interesting that you should bring up John Goodman. I've known quite a few women over the years who've thought he is ideal. He may not have six pack abs, lol, but you're right. He's like a big bear. How could you not want to hug him? I wonder if it drives him crazy though? If he has to put up a "hug shield" just to get anything done?

Bellita said...

I can't remember where I read that John Goodman became somewhat of a sex symbol during the heyday of the sitcom Roseanne. It was because his character was a hardworking family man who repaired everything that broke in the house. :)

Carnivore said...


You've got a pretty short check list compared to most gals. ;)

Re body type - no, the equivalent measurement for men is chest to waist and the difference is called "drop". A drop of 10" or greater is considered "athletic build" and results in problems when buying shirts and suit jackets. Steve Reeves supposedly had a drop of 20", but that was Steve Reeves and there's only one like him every 100 years.

I'm surprised about the attraction of Goodman. He always struck me as horribly obese. Would have thought a gal wanting a bigger, 300+ pound guy would go for a Derek Poundstone, Steve MacDonald or Travis Ortmayer type. Those yolked guys are intimidating to women (and most men!) but you have to picture them the right way:

From me. Perhaps sex symbol is not the best epithet to use, but certainly he became very attractive as a traditional type of man. I remember many articles in magazines and newspapers (before the internet was big) about how women found him irresistible.

Interesting that bears are popular. Guess that leaves the wolves like me, out in the rain. Good thing I have a she-wolf already.

@ Bob,

"Every one of those traits you listed can backfire in a big way."

Sure. I have no doubt! Horses for courses, I guess.
One woman's idea of 'confidence' could be another's idea of 'arrogance'.

JV and Carnivore,

Given that JV was the only one to answer this question when I posed it in 'La Isla Bonita', this is therefore her list, really ;) With one or two of mine added.

My own list was massive when I was younger!
I, like most women, have had to whittle it down a tad.
So this list is probably the resultant 'Red Pill' list...

Interesting about John Goodman, isn't it?
I don't really understand his appeal, even though I am one of those who is subject to it!
But I do know for sure, that I would pick him over a male model, every time!!!
That picture you linked to is sooooooo sweet, Carnivore.
I think, for me, that is the ultimate tingle generator. A man who is supremely masculine-looking, but has the soft side of him on display too, as evidenced by him cradling a small baby :-)
We fall for this type of thing way too easily, us women. And I am sure there are men who incorporate this into their Game.

Ah, chest to waist ratio...that's what I meant!

Somehow, although it is aestetically pleasing, (I admit), it has never really been one of my 'must haves', I have to say, although I see the point of it (athlesticism, and therefore a proxy for masculinity). Swimmers especially have this 'drop' down to a T, I notice (um, not that I was loooking, during the Olympics lol).

But the tall, thin ones with the chest to waist ratio of 1 (the 'giraffes') also appeal. That was my father's body shape :-)

But the 'bear' trumps all, at least for me. Being a female giraffe, I guess I want a contrast.
Diversity and all that...

What exactly is a 'wolf'?

Anonymous said...

Spacetraveller said...

What exactly is a 'wolf'? "

The wolf is one of several very important animals in Cherokee legends, myths and stories. The main traits spoken of are family (the pack is all, with a male and female at the head of the family, wolves will kill or die to protect the cubs), strength and teamwork (a pack of two or more wolves can take down a fully grown moose or bison), stamina (wolves can run 30-40 miles per hour for DAYS, during a hunt) and many more.

The wolf is so revered as a 'totem' that one of the seven clans of the Cherokee is the Wolf clan, Ani'waya. To the Cherokee, the Bear clan was once a human clan of the Nation, but during a hard year, the entire clan turned into bears in order to survive. They are viewed with respect, but also a smattering of contempt, because they gave up their humanity.

Read about wolves and their social structure as well as family devotion. Bears are solitary creatures, only meeting up with another bear in order to mate. In contrast, a lone wolf is a pitiful thing, no family, no pack and not likely to survive for long.

Years and years ago, some biologist observed that only one male and one female, in any given pack of wolves, were the ones to mate and produce a litter of cubs. They are the dominant pair of the pack, and usually mate for life. The biologist (forget the name at this moment) named this dominant pair, the 'alpha' male and 'alpha' female, and certain members of the Manosphere adopted this as representative of human sexual relations... theorizing that only 'alpha' males get to breed, in any given assemblage of humanity. The analogy falls apart when one considers that wolves breed to produce cubs, thus keeping the pack going into a new generation, whereas human 'alphas' never breed for offspring, rather, for their own enjoyment. Female wolves are only fertile once a year, thus making the pack family of supreme importance in hunting, social structure and general survival.

Whoever made the analogy with wolves, also assumed that wolves compete with each other to become an 'alpha' thus allowing them to breed, which is somewhat true, but that research is at least two decades out of date. Due to environmental pressures, wolf packs can often have multiple litters from more than one female, at the same time. Males can and do leave the pack for a season, finding a female from another pack with which to breed. Sometimes, this new pair form their own pack. These males were often the 'beta' of the old pack, second in line, second in dominance. Starting to sound familiar?

This is why I laugh at the borrowing of Greek letters used in wolf pack behavior analysis, because it is such a surface analogy only, without a full understanding of what we know about wolves, as well as not fully understanding what we know about human sexual behavior as well. Like most scientists, I dislike the use of scientific research to justify a human behavior. There are many reasons in my mind to emulate the behavior of wolves, but breeding dominance is not one of them.

If the meek shall inherit the Earth, what happens to us wolves?

I have pointed this out before, and that those in the Manosphere don't know what they're talking about.

In addition, a lower-ranking wolf can overthrow the Alpha couple and become the top dogs themselves.

If people did this, all the Beta guys would kill off all the Alphas.

You might be thinking of Farley Mowat.

Anonymous said...

Naw, I was too lazy to Google... Mech is the name of the biologist, a pioneer in the behavior of wolves. Farley Mowat was the subject of a feel-good movie called "Never Cry Wolf".

I don't really care if some guy wants to call himself an alpha, beta or any other letter from any alphabet. You make a good point about lower dominance wolves being fully capable of challenging for the alpha position, which often happens as the top wolf ages and can no longer stay dominant, but that doesn't jive with the beliefs of self-identifying 'dominant male' humans.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Treat every human as an individual, not a generic form of any particular group, especially when seeking a long term relationship or spouse. I could throw in a long Red Pill oriented argument here about it all, but the simple truth is, finding a spouse is far far more difficult nowadays, than it ever was, only 20 years ago.

P.S. Spelled 'Corpsman' incorrectly in my last comment.

Bwaaah! A topic in my honour, Space Traveller! I am flattered :-) I could give you a proper Himalayan bear hug but wouldn't want to squeeze the life outta you. I'm ending up in hell anyway; didn't want to affirm my position further :-)

@Navy Corpsman
I learn everyday as I read your posts, sir. So informative about the behaviour of wolves. The Greek "alphabetisation" of humans never made sense to me personally; good to see the theory fall apart under critical scrutiny.

Even sticking to by conventional manosphere definitions (for argument's sake), I've always believed that a man is a mixture of different traits. Someone who is an "alpha" in the office to his subordinates, can be a total "beta" in the dating scene. The beta-isation (is that a term?) of men may also be a dynamic phenomenon, in the sense that a higher SMV woman may beta-fy him (or even bring out the "omega") more than he already is :-) School for thought?

Cause I've heard a lot of times about a male slightly low on confidence having been completely overpowered by a high SMV woman's intimidating sexual presence. Such a man may be closer to the "alpha" in the company of a woman that he perceives is somewhere around his league.

Lonely Himalayan Bear said...

Back to the main topic - the BEAR!!!! While the question of ultimate masculinity is a fairly subjective one, to me (like for ST) the bear is the epitome. It's a solitary animal that seeks no approval from a society/peer group. Possessing extreme strength, but unlike the wildest carnivores (the tiger is an exception), the bear is actually quite prudent as to when to go full throttle. It's a versatile mammal richly-equipped with the basic Darwinian skill - an ability to adapt and survive. Flexibility in diet being a large part of that. As can be gauged from the presence of bears in Russian tundras, highland and alpine Himalayas, American Rockies, Caucasian mountains, the Indonesian archipalego, tropical rainforests and such geographically diverse regions of the world. Like the skillful Homo Sapien, the bear has evolved in accordance with the environment it chose and did so much better than other species that are battling for survival.
Extremely smart in using the “fight-or-flee” decision-making aptitude, for such a large mammal (excepting the Sun bear), it can also use natural camouflage brilliantly. People who've tried taming bears (yours truly included) have realized how fiercely independent they can be – even as small cubs. All-in-all, a brilliant mammal with a lot to learn from. Of all territorial mammals, the bear and the tiger have my highest regard!

Spacetraveller said...

@ NC,

You and Hélène Grimaud would make such a fine pair lol. You could talk about wolves all day!

I must say, my only recollection of the word 'wolf' growing up is (unfortunately) in association with the phrase 'the big bad wolf'!
As in Red Riding Hood and...
As in the 3 little pigs and...
So I have a negative view of wolves. I have a fear of them, as I do of foxes.

But clearly, from what you say, there is a lot more to them that destruction and terror :-)

I didn't know they are such romantic creatures! They pair for lfe?
Alors, I need to find me a wolf! But with bear-like qualities, i.e. big and huggable.
Not asking for much, am I?

@ Bear,


I do like bears. Didn't know they were such independent creatures...
I must admit, all I hang onto is the fact that they are big, strong and cuddly :-)
But it's nice to learn more about them.

Do they all share the same qualities - the different types of bear?
I know there is a mountain bear in Eastern Switzerland whose movements are being monitored because it escaped from the zoo in Italy and is making the rounds all over the Eastern Alps. The animal police won't touch it unless it harms people, and so far it hasn't. But I imagined it would be lonely, away from the rest of his friends, but from what you say, he is perhaps happy the way he is.
There you go - a bear GHOW!

There is a British adventurer called 'Bear' Grylls. I wonder why 'Bear'?
Perhaps it is his adventurer's spirit? He was at one point the youngest man ever to have reached the summit of Everest, and he has achived a lot of other hair-raising feats.

Bob Wallace said...

"Treat every human as an individual, not a generic form of any particular group, especially when seeking a long term relationship or spouse."

I refer to them as "the Lost Boys of the Manosphere." They think they've taken the Red Pill, which they are so fond of claiming.

They haven't. They've created a new Matrix and enthusiastically jumped in.

Alpha? Beta? Game? PUA? Female solipsism? Rationalism hamster? These are the private languages of a minor religious cult.

Most guys are going to claim they're Alphas or Sigmas, and Beta is always going to be an insult.

They're obviously pretty young and have never learned to be men. Such is what society has done to them. I ask them, can be imagine Clint Eastwood, Gary Cooper and Humfrey Bogart talking and acting like the Lost Boys.

Most can't realize people imitate people, and when people are lost they're fall for whatever blowhard who claims he knows what he'd doing.

Some day, some of the "leaders" of the Manosphere are going to say, "All these things I've told you...I was wrong. And I'm sorry."

"The PUAs and Gamers...are comprised mostly of men who bear the deepest afflictions of a fatherless culture. Abandoned to feminist governance by their male elders and bereft of masculine guidance, they have been dropped into the solipsistic void that was the only existence feminism ever could have offered them outside direct servitude. Stripped of values and consciousness and the ability to be circumspect, they have turned feral; so unable to form community or embrace brotherhood that they have shrugged off the desire for either." - Paul Elam

The discussions of what a man is supposed to be has been going on for 3000 years. It happens every generation.

The same bad concepts (PUA/Game/"Alpha") comes up every generation and is shot down every time.

@ Bob

I think some of the problem stems in what age certain influences take root or if there is a template to follow in the first place. You had Burrough's influence from a young age, which helped incorporate that into your core self.
You were able to see a working model of strong masculinity coupled with character and principals. Then, I'm going to assume that you "played" with these traits, tried them out on the people around them, and over time, made them your own.

A lot of the men walking around have never seen a working model of that kind of alpha. Can't even imagine it, and if they read it in a book, they'd figure it was just made up. That such men are the figurings of the imagination only. Or that you couldn't be like that in this day and age.

It took me a while to realize this. That the only version of alpha that they know and have actually witnessed in their lives are cads. Not all of the guys in the sphere, but most.
