"methinks my eyes deceive me!" says one. "I'll fight ya for him" says another.

You get the general idea. ;-)

I have seen numerous men kneel down before the Blessed Sacrament, but still it is a sight to behold each time. I do have to keep my eyes shut, so that I do not get distracted. biggrin biggrin biggrin

If a guy were to kneel if he was standing somewhere where there is no kneelers, like outside the church on a rough surface.... that is really something.

Holiness and reverence even devotion is extremely attractive. Thank you Lord for such men. Praying

There isa man who is a lector at my parish, at the 6:45 AM daily Mass. I don't go to that one often, as I can go to a Mass near work in the middle of the day. But THAT piqued my interest, as well as all the other things I notice.

But "holier than thou"-ness is not.


I notice men who dress up for church and seem to be focussed on what's going on. Of course, if I'm noticing this, I'm not really focussing on what's going on...which means he's an occasion of sin, which means...I'm being "holier than thou" here, aren't I.... scratchchin

FYI, gents, doing a bit of acolyte or sacristan work goes a long way... At the Catholic College I attended, I was a Master of Ceremonies and the Head Sacristan and it seems to me that it wasn't a bad thing as far as the ladies were concerned...thing is, most of that time, I was seminary bound.

The most attractive man I've seen my life was on July 3, 2004, in a church in Ann Arbor, MI. He was kneeling and praying after the Saturday vigil Mass. I wouldn't be surprised that if I had seen him outside of the church I wouldn't have thought him as attractive, and this was back when I would have considered myself as being a lukewarm Catholic!

(As for remembering the date, it wasn't because of that guy! That was the date I went to my very first They Might Be Giants concert, which should be a significant date in anyone's life. smile )

If you think we are a rare breed in the US you should see the state of reality in Sweden. You have way more men to chose from than your catholic sisters here.

So, I'm wondering what things people of the opposite sex do that could be seen as religious that make you take a greater interest in that person. Take for example. I was at adoration last night and the chapel has chairs with fold down kneelers on the back of each chair. Well as you might imagine that means the front row is without kneelers, but they do have one standing kneeler with a padded arm rest on top and cushioned kneeler. Well, this young lady walks in to the front row and after kneeling in reverence before the Blessed Sacrament she got up and pushed the standing kneeler forward a bit with her foot and then proceeded to kneel down on the ground. Now granted the chapel is carpeted, but it's definitely a form of mortification to kneel on the ground rather than a cushioned kneeler. Well, needless to say, I was impressed and wanted to ask her out on a date right then and there, but looked at her closer and seen she looked a wee too young for me. So, what things to people of the opposite do that make you want to ask them out on a date or at least pique your interest in them?

What a wonderful question, Dan. My interest is piqued when I see men doing random acts of kindness with no obvious benefit to themselves and without any fanfare.

When I see a man singing at Mass . . . even if he can't carry a tune, he is participating fully and THAT interests me.
