“There was just something about him. The way he got excited about stuff like Tolkien and quantum physics and Doctor Who. He still had a sense of wonder that gets shamed out of the majority of the teenage population by the time we turn 18. He still loved things about the world. I found that inherently sexy.”
Cynthia Hand | The Last Time We Say Goodbye
…I couldn’t have put it in better words myself. I think it’s unbelievably attractive if a guy is interested and invested in something’s other than himself, if he is knowledgeable about the world and has that sense of wonder that doesn’t die out with age. I know there are people; guys and girls alike, that still hold this way of thinking. They are just getting harder to find. They are rare.
I can relate to this down to the last molecule of the world. I fan girl about many things; books, movies, articles, etc and that doesn’t make me any less valuable to society. It’s great to love things to be excited. I find joy in things that connects me with thousands of people around the world.
